Use Your Ribbon UYSBH

Do you have tons of ribbon hiding in your craft stash? I do. I have a hard time parting with it. Our mission with this blog hop is to inspire you to use it.

If you have come here from Wendy's blog, you are on the right track. 

I am trying to use up as many Chalk It Up scraps as possible. I love this paper. The lagoon paper made me think of bubbles so I decided to create a bath/water fun layout with it. I love the dramatic pop of black mixed with the lagoon, white and glacier. For the second layout, I picked the largest scrap I had left, and mixed in some Flaxen Paper Fundamentals paper.

Our cousin just had a baby boy. When time allows, I try to create baby albums for my relatives. Between my husband and I, we have many cousins. I think I've created at least 3 albums so far. 

This first layout uses some American Crafts ribbon I had laying around forever. I thought it matched pretty close. The second layout uses retired sorbet ribbon. I tend to hoard my ribbon, so it's good to have blog hops like this one to use it.
