Creative Expressions Sheer Inspiration Blog Hop

Welcome to everyone taking part in the Sheer Inspiration Blog Hop, if you've come here from Shary Nettleship's blog then you’re in the right place.

Here is my design team make with the fantastic ribbons I was sent from Creative Expressions.


I've used Sheer wrinkled edge white & Silky crush ribbon cream, which I have used plain and some are dyed with Distress Stains and Dylusions inks. 

I started off making the ring using florist wire and tying pieces of ribbon to it until it was filled up with lots of colour.


I've used lots of bits of ribbon from my crafty stash, they always come in handy :)  I've also used some Crochet ribbon white from Creative Expressions too.

The big bow below is using the Silky Crush ribbon, it's really gorgeous!


I die cut a little heart using Tim's Movers and shapers die, stuck some book text on it, then coloured the edges with acrylic paint and printed off the sentiment. 


All the purple and some of the blue ribbons are dyed and they've worked out really well.


I have this on my kitchen door as a reminder that the sun has got his hat on lately!
I love the things that you make that you want to use around the home, it's not just a 
design team piece, its a home decoration that makes you happy :)

To be in with a chance to win £15 of crafty goodies simply leave a comment on each of the 8 design team's blogs (listed below). For more details of the blog hop click here.
The hop will close and prize winners will be announced on Monday 8th April on the Creative Expressions News blog

Order of the Hop
8. Michelle Webb (me)
