Ooh La La

One of the most exciting things about scrapbooking that I have encounted in the past few months was meeting the Lovely Zoe Pearn. Not only is she a beautiful person to share a coffee with on the steps of the Brisbane Entertainment Centre during a frantic Australasian Scrapbooking Convention, but to my delight I found out that she is a designer for My Minds Eye.

WOW it is so great to know that some of our talented people here in Australia are being recognised in the massive US market.

Zoe has been designing for MME for a couple of years now, and has consistently delivered gorgeous paper ranges with her own distinctive flair.

Just arrived in our store is her latest range "Ooh La La" This collection comes in two flavours. For Him & For Her.

You can learn more about Zoe from her BLOG, and find her collections in our store.

Congratulations Zoe on your latest Collections

Ribbon Tutorial

To show you how versatile your ribbons can be we have copied a ribbon flower tutorial from the talented Lisa Pace's blog. Enjoy!

Ribbon Flower Tutorial
By Lisa M. Pace

1. Cut ribbon approximately 12 inches
2. Starting at one end of your ribbon weave your threaded needle in and out of the ribbon as shown (I thread my needle with the thread still on the spool. This way I don’t have to worry about not having my thread long enough or my ribbon coming off of the thread)


3. Continue weaving your threaded needle all the way to the end of the ribbon

4. Once you are to the end of the ribbon pull the thread through the ribbon to make it gather


5. Cut thread making sure to leave enough thread for you to tie a double knot
6. Gather your ribbon as tight as possible



7. Double knot your thread
8. Glue the cut ends of your ribbon together making sure the glued ends point to the underside of the ribbon flower


9. Once the glue has dried flatten out your flower


10. Adhere your button to the center of the flower (in my example I used two and placed one on top of the other) using a hot glue gun


Have fun! The possibilities for these flowers are endless.
