Happy Anniversary {with pleated satin ribbon}


It’s Tuesday already! My Monday went by fast, did yours? This is one of my cards I stamped this weekend. Since Papertrey Ink sold out of the Damask Designs set, I found this design in one of the SU Simply Sent sets. I really like it and have made a variety of cards and even wedding themed paper art with it. This is an anniversary card and also features satin pleated trim from New York City. I went on a surprise mini vacation for Valentine’s and picked this up at M&J Trimming. That place was PACKED full of ribbons, trims, and buttons. It really was overwhelming, so I stuck with pleated trim on this trip! Some were expensive so I limited myself to one yard, which is plenty when working with cards. What do you think? I liked it because it was something different than the usual flat ribbon and like nothing I’ve seen before. It reminds me of a skirt (giggle)! I made a matching envelope too with my new favorite design stamp.

Oh yeah, thanks to everyone wishing me and my knee better. It is healing well and I’m being a little more cautious than usual now! As for the baby scrapbook I’m working on, I got pretty far tonight by finishing 3 layouts and the cover page too! Tomorrow, I hope to finish it completely, but that’s a big goal because I have 6 more layouts!! I do have layout themes mapped out, so hopefully it won’t take long.
