If loving ribbon is wrong....

...than I don't want to be right.

It's true. I am a ribbon lover. I always labeled myself a paper kind of gal, but after a recent order of ribbon came in the mail, I am smitten! Polkadotted, stitched, embroidered, florals, twill, ricrac... So many yards of ribbon, so little time.

The ladies at BTDL were recently asked which scrapbook goodie they couldn't live without. Jan (hocki1415), our designer of the month, shares my fondness for ribbon. Polkadots are one of our favorites, and Jan can't resist pink and black! Andrea (andreatdesigns)loves buttons, and I love how she incorporates them in her altered art and to-die-for handmade cards. Jules (juliespieces)is a flower girl - simply mention the word "Prima" and watch her swoon :) Her sweet bear family pages are often blooming, and so colorful you are tempted to smell the roses!

Tonya (rainedakota) loves her ribbons and flowers too, but when asked what her obsession is? Charms. Enameled, pewter, clay, silver... she can't get enough of these delicate dangling pretties. One look at one of her signature Designer Purse Albums™ with their fabulous hang tags, and you will be charmed, I'm sure :)

Anita (scrapinams) is our resident Prima Queen. Her collection of these lovely flowers makes me envious, and the way she uses these pretties on her altered tins is flower fabulous!The princess of Primas would have to be Sheryl (scrappy4477). Her love of these blooms is rivaled only by her fondness for letters - chipboard and Doodlebug! Sheryl has an eye for fonts too, as evidenced not only by her layouts, but her fabulous digi work! Check her blog for her latest freebies!

Tina (tycaalak) loves chalk and ink - look closely at her darling paper piecings and you will be wowed by all the subtle shading and highlights. Tina just released her first CD with patterns of some of her best loved paper piecings, and it is incredible! As for Melissa (thescrapbookexchange), her accent of choice is Stickles. A little sparkle here, a little sparkle there... I think she has every color available.

Michelle (antq.freak)is all about the Bazzill. Her collection is incredible; every color you could ask for, and every shade of pink imaginable :) Her latest layout is just tooo pretty! Another Bazzill fan is Sandra(cornerhobby). How she is able to turn these pieces of cardstock into her intricate, multi-layered piecings is beyond me.... she must have magic fingers, although she says she just uses her favorite tool, her Cutterbee scissors :)

Paper is Julie's (bdule) true love. She says she wants to marry pretty paper. Of course, how many weddings can she have? There are so many pretty papers out there. And too, I think the primas would get jealous - she loves them too!

Sandy (sandyvint)loves her sewing machine, and stitches on just about every project she makes. Her little stitched shingles on her "house" explosion boxes are perfect! Of course, all of the ladies at BTDL want to raid Sandy's car - she has a habit of filling her trunk with goodies and forgetting about them. Stickles, paper, flowers, buttons, ribbon - even a sewing machine - odds are good you can find it in Sandy's car!
