RCC13 A Stitch in Time with Debbie Carriere


Gorgeous entries again last week! We'll announce the Top Spools on Friday. Till then, lets get to a brand new challenge!
It’s time to stitch up your creations for this week’s Ribbon Carousel Challenge (RCC13). Debbie Carriere, (our superstar crewmate who has made it into the Top 10 of this year's Gallery Idol!!!!) would like us to try some kind of stitching; either with our sewing machine, hand stitching, faux stitching, piercing, stamped stitches….whatever works for you! Remember your creation can be anything from cards, quilts, sewn items, paper crafts, paintings, anything will work!

*** Please remember that your creation must have ribbon, bakers twine, jute twine, lace, thread (basically anything that comes on a spool). ***

The Carousel Crew has been hard at work making some adorable samples to inspire!




We'd love for you to join us this week! Here are the details:

  • Make your creation following the ribbon carousel challenge of the week. Be sure to include some type of ribbon, twine, hemp, lace....basically, anything that comes on a spool.
  • Load your creation up onto your blog or a public viewing forum like SplitcoastStampers, (use the keyword RCC13) with a direct link back to THIS post. Including the challenge graphic isn't a requirement, but sure is appreciated! (A participant of our very first challenge didn't link back or mention our challenge and couldn't be named Top Spool, so don't let that happen to you!)
  • Link up your creation using the Inlinkz button at the bottom of this post. Your image may take a little while to pop up, but don't worry, it will appear shortly.
  • Be sure to come back the Friday after the challenge ends to see if YOU are a Top Spool! :D
This Challenge will end on August 1, 2011 at 11:59pm EST.

RCC11 Inspiration Challenge with Laurel

Hey everyone! Are you ready for another challenge? We are too, but first a little announcement....It is with great sadness that Dawn Easton is leaving the Crew. We are all so very sorry to see her go, and wish her tons of success and happiness! Who knows, maybe we can get her to come back and join us when things settle down.

Happily, I get to introduce you to our newest Crew member! Savannah O'Gwynn!!

My name is Savannah O'Gwynn {aka Sav}. I am fairly new to stamping/blogging--I started crafting at a young age, but I didn't buy my first stamps until August 2009. In June of 2009, I left my teaching profession to pursue my crafting passion and it was then that my life changed. I bought lots of stamps, ribbons, papers, and so much more--I started my blog (Dec. 2009) and began entering challenges. I found that I really love all sorts of crafts, and I enjoy working in my studio and being creative. My favorite embellie is ribbon--I am always looking for just the right ribbon for each project! I enjoy making almost any project, but I enjoy making cards the most.

Be sure to pop on over to Savannah's blog, Savannahland2, and give her a big ol' welcome! Now on to this week's challenge.
The Ribbon Carousel Challenge (RCC11) is brought to us by Laurel Seabrook this week. Laurel found this amazing photo to set the creative juices flowing. It could be the light and airy colors or the floral shabby tag. Perhaps the metal tin evokes a feeling. Whatever inspires you, be sure to share your creation with us this week.

*Remember, your creation can be anything from cards, quilts, sewn items, paper crafts, paintings, anything will work!
AND as an added bonus, we are being sponsored this week by Your Next Stamp!
Your Next Stamp offers a unique variety of fun and whimsical rubber stamps for every occasion! Their signature lines include Fhiona and Friends, Heather Collections, Dale Designs and the humorous Franfou Collection. Stamps are produced with top quality rubber, which are then mounted onto cling foam, trimmed and are ready to use with any clear block! Be sure to check out the YNS Facebook page too!
