Belli Challenge #84 - RIBBONS

Welcome to this week's Belli Challenge! This week's Belli Challenge is to make a project with RIBBONS.

What is the Belli Challenge you ask? Each week, we try to give you a challenge that will use things we have lying around your stamp rooms! With a constant flow of new things coming out, We tend to forget about the other things we have and they quickly become clutter!

Here is what you need to do...
1. Anyone Can Play! Spread the Word! :)
2. Make a completed project/card with any type of Ribbon... Grab something you have had laying around for ages!
3. Share the link here in the comments linking to Mr. Linky - CBC84. When you post to Splitcoaststampers or to your Blog, be sure and put CBC84 as the KEYWORD and mention of the challenge - with a link!

Last week, we did NOT have a Sponsor BUT I (Chris) have decided to give away some goodies from my home office AND with that we have a NEW award for the winner to post on their Blogs! I used and the winner this week of a pack of Designer Papers and other treasures from my home office is #36 KATIE.

Congratulations Katie!!! You can grab the Belle of the Belli Blinkie and post on your blog and contact me at with your mailing address and I will send you some goodies!

This week, we are blessed to have Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps as our Sponsor! Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps recently went to all Digital Images and they have a special blog that features FABULOUS artwork HERE. Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps comes out with NEW digis every week! Be sure to check them out!!! This week, Korin has generously offered the winner of this challenge a $10 Gift Certificate. We will choose the winner with and announce them on the next Belli Challenge!

After our growth the past month, Holly and I (Chris) decided to add a few more ladies to our Belli Challenge Design Team. When we did a Design Team call in December we had so many very talented entries - so we asked two people from that DT call! Please welcome Darsie Bruno and Melisa Waldorf to our team! Melisa is our Guest Designer this week, and she will be joining us right away as a Belli Girl.

Hello Everyone! I’m Me - Lisa and I’m thrilled to be a guest designer this week for Creative Belli! I’m a 43yr old mom of a 22yr old son and a 20yr old daughter. (The photo in my layout is me and my daughter 20yrs ago). I’m married to the same fella I started dating at age 15. We live in Jacksonville, Fl. I am truly blessed by a wonderfully supportive family and am so thankful for them.

I started scrapbooking approximately 12 yrs ago. Through scrapbooking I was introduced to stamping via Technique Tuesday stamps. I enjoyed using them soooo much I started venturing into card making. I started stamping and card making regularly approximately 2 ½ years ago. I am blessed with 6 girlfriends who are crazy about stamping as well and we meet-up frequently to get crafty. I am currently a TAC demonstrator, and a DT Member for FireCracker Designs by Pamela. I enjoy trying different styles and types of projects, beyond card making. I love using my stamps for scrapbooking, home décor, ATC’s, inchies, and other types of altered pieces. I have several blogs to organize my art, but my primary is I would love to have you stop by for a visit sometime!

I hope you enjoy this challenge as much as I did. I LOVE ribbon. It amazes me how many different ways talented crafters find to use it and how many patterns and styles we have to choose from. Organdy is one of my favorites. The black pieces connecting my ribbon are actually fishing gear of some sort. I can’t wait to see what creative ideas everyone comes up with for this one!
