Vintage Street Market & May Arts Blog Hop Day 5

Wow what a busy week! Its hard to believe that its already Friday!

We had a such a great time creating with May Arts ribbons and thank all of you for following our blog, entering the giveaways, sharing on Facebook and leaving the comments! We love the feedback and are happy to hear if something in particular inspires you. 🙂

We have some great projects to share with you today! Our first project was created by Keri Babbitt (

Per Keri,
“For this trimmed-out vintage layout, I really had a lot of fun layering the gorgeous May Arts trims with the retro-girl images from Vintage Street Market.  By combining bolder striped & chevron trims with the tiny poms & lace, I created a look that’s both bold & nostalgic.  With a quick stitch & gather technique, I combined all the trims together before adhering them to my layout.”

What a neat combination of colors and I really like how Keri layered the lace trim on top of the vibrant yellow ribbon. Really a great coordination technique!

Our next project today was created by Shellye McDaniel (

Shellye comments:
“I took a plain wooden door-knob hanger and covered in the Marshall Matthew paper from the Family Fun Collection.  I then embellished with punch-out and cut-out accents from the Party Games Paper Sheets & Tags.  For the bottom of the hanger, I looped different ribbons and lengths of ribbons and attached.  In finishing, I trimmed out the edge with a wide red jute cording.  I love that you could hang this from a door to welcome birthday party guests, tie onto a wreath or fashion in a way so that it could be used as a centerpiece.  Best of all, it can be used again and again, year after year!

This is a clever way to use scrap ribbons-you know those kind that you collect in a jar that are just too small to tie into a bow. Simply loop and adhere or staple to the edge of a card, tag or layout!

And our final project today is by Julie Campbell (

For this project, Julie uses Meghan Kay cardstock from the Family Fun collection to create this lovely layout. Vintage ephemera and platinum Stickles accent the photo and coordinate beautifully with the pink striped twill. May Arts lace trim also creates the perfect border!

We sure hope you have enjoyed the projects this week! Be sure to also pop on over to the May Arts Blog for many more inspiring projects!

Thank you again!

    All three of these projects are great and I’m so glad you posted them. Keri’s layout is perfect to lift for a variety of photos and I have that jar of ribbon scraps that Shellye mentions. I love the layering, paper, and color choices Julie used to set off this vintage picture.
