Shabby chic Elegant Thank You

The brad and ribbon pack that comes free with orders of £45 this month are proving very popular and I have been asked several times for more ideas for using them! So I found a minute to sit down with my my brads and ribbons and the coordinating Everyday Enchantment papers (which are on sale again due to popular demand) and this is what happened:

Using the papers with Naturals Ivory as a base gives a lovely shabby chic look I've found, and my favourite label from Everything Eleanor goes perfectly. I stamped it in Crumb Cake ink and overstamped it with the Elegant Thank You single stamp which could have been tailor-made to fit the space. I threaded the Calypso Coral ribbon from the free pack through punched holes in the sides of the label and added the pretty floral brads which coordinate perfectly with the background paper.

What did I do before I had my Simply Scored? I use it so often to give subtle little touches to my card bases as well as making boxes and bags with it. The bottom of this card has been versamarked with one of the flowers from Everything Eleanor and then scored at 1/4" intervals.

If you haven't got your free brads and ribbons set yet, you have until the end of the month to get your hands on some - find details of how to order them below.

I came into the house yesterday to find my daughter doubled up laughing on the sofa. She told me that someone had just texted her with 'on a scale of 1-America, how free are you this weekend?' She and her friends are all as mad as hens! Well, whether you're 1 (completely tied up) or America (completely free), I hope you have a lovely weekend! See you soon,
