Ribbon with Scrapbooking

Way back in October when we did our monthly Blog Hop, Bonnie asked you all what you would like to see more of featured on the blog.  A few of you answered "scrapbook layouts" did some of you from the question a few days ago.  You want to see ideas on how to use ribbon on your scrapbooking layouts. 
Well, I have done a couple of layouts since then, and today I want to take the opportunity to show them to you and tell you how I used the ribbon on each. 

Here is "Pouty Face":
It features 2 ribbons from the RRR store...

I used the pink gingham as a bottom border for my photo and made a bow accent to go with my embellishment cluster.
The lace serves as the base of my layered borders.   

I also did a Christmas layout that was featured with one of the December Challenges. 
I wanted to show it again and tell you about the ribbon that I used.

Here is "I Do Believe":
I used 4 different ribbons on this one to make my ribbon banner.
topped with aqua seam binding.

To make the banner, I cut each "flag" piece and sealed the ends with a lighter.
I layered them just how I wanted them and then ran a straight stitch across the tops to bind them together. 
Then, I tied loose knots in the seam binding and attached it to the top of the banner using fabric glue. 

I LOVE scrapbooking and ribbon is one of my passions. 
When I combine the 2, the results always make me happy!!!
I hope I have helped you a little bit today and given you ideas for using ribbon on your layouts.  Thanks for visiting me today and have a Magnificent Day!
