Challenge #38: Use That Ribbon

Hello Users!

It's time for another Use It Tuesday challenge. This week, we're heading to the heart of the craft stash. Raise your hand if you're a terrible ribbon hoarder. I thought so, there's a few of us out there. So come on, pull out those old favorites, the loose ends, forgotten bows, recycled gift wraps and "USE THAT RIBBON".

***REMEMBER: All of our challenges call for you to use your hoarded supplies! A challenge requirement is to tell us in your post what you used!***

Please link your creation using Inlinkz by Friday September 7, 2012. No blog? No problem! Just use keyword USE038 when uploading to an online gallery and leave us a direct link so we can find your creation. (Linking tips are at the bottom of the post!)

Please make sure to mention you are playing along with a Use It Tuesday challenge (a link is great too!) so we know you are participating.

As always, one lucky participant will be randomly chosen to be a featured guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

Here is a little inspiration to get you started:

Cathy told us she's a collector of ribbon...but she loves it so much she uses it instead of hoarding it! She finally found these forgotten ribbons that she won back in May.

Stephanie used both hoarded ribbon and buttons on her beautiful layout. The ribbons are a combination of a 2010 Christmas gift and recycled name badge. And, can you believe that button is from the last century?

Marjolaine made this spectacular 3-piece canvas piece, making her flowers and stems from ribbon from her stash. Love this piece, Marjolaine!

Victoria used extra ribbon on her card this week....along with hoarded washi tape, an embossing folder and cardstock. What a sunny sunflower!

Danielle pulled papers from a retired Basic Grey collection (from 2006 maybe?) and dug out her embossing folders to highlight these ribbons from Jillibean Soup.

Tess will make some birthday girl feel extra special with this beautiful ribbon adorned birthday badge. All the ribbons came from her stash, along with the rosette die and lettering. Tess, you must have quite the ribbon collection!!

Caroli says she doesn't usually scrap with ribbon (but that doesn't stop from hoarding it!), but found a way to incorporate it into this pretty seasonal layout, also using Echo Park papers from last Christmas.

And finally, Haven used ribbon from her stash to add the add the finishing touch to this overdue 1st Birthday Gift. Bold and beautiful!!

We can't wait to see what you create! Now go Use It!!
