May Arts Ribbon DT Call 2013

Hi Friends! Boy do I have an exciting post for all of you today. I have been waiting since last year for the May Arts DT Call to come around and it's here...squeal!! Be prepared for lots of photos..this is your warning lol : )

I have 5 projects to share with you today, two I created specifically for this DT Call and the other three you have seen on my blog within the past few months. Here's a photo of all the projects I'm sharing with you today...if you look real close you'll see my baby girl Bella sunbathing : )
Per the DT Call guidelines I do have a tutorial for you in the form of a video. I share with with you how I created the flowers I made using some May Arts trim for my CREATE banner. I also have a short video that shows you each of the projects up close. I wanted to focus more on the photos in this post so in the video I walk you through each of the projects and explain my use of ribbon for each one :)

I want to share with you a project that has been in my mind for a very long time. In addition to crafting, I love to bake and decorate cakes so I thought why not transfer this into paper I did...(watch for a surprise with the cake)
I made this topsy turvy cake from scratch using nothing but some 12x12 corrugated card stock (I designed the template for this & cut it out by hand), ribbons/trims, flowers and some bling. I LOVE how this turned out : )
Ready for the surprise???

There's a mini inside : )
For my next project I made a CREATE banner for my craft room...
 I'm so pleased with how this banner turned out and I can't wait to hang it in my craft room. 

Next up are some projects that I have featured on my blog before but wanted to share them with you for this DT call and I really feel they show some creative ways to use ribbon...

Grunge Chic Paper Cones...
 Shabby Topiary...

I Like Your Style Dress Form Card...

One last look at all of my projects...

I hope you enjoyed my list of projects that I'm sharing with you today. I know there were a ton of photos and I appreciate you sticking with me : )

I have to say that my favorite project is the topsy turvy cake and mini. I absolutely LOVE how this turned out. I've had this idea in my mind for quite some time so what better time to bring it to life than for the May Arts DT Call : )

To Bethney the Ribbon Lady....THANK YOU so much for taking the time to review my projects and videos. I had an absolute blast creating these projects for your DT Call, especially the cake.

Happy Craftin : )



  1. absolutely gorgeous projects Abby!! fingers crossed you make the DT :-)

  2. All I can say is that May Arts will be crazy if they don't include you on their DT! All of the projects are gorgeous, but the cake is absolutely genius! LOVE IT and you.
