tutorial and a blog hop


for my latest May Arts tutorial, we are doing things a bit differently - a blog hop with a chance to win some goodies. what could be better than that!

making a camera strap has been on my to do list for months now. nothing too complicated, just a bit of prettiness to quickly identify my camera. click here to download the tutorial or, as always, visit my "make-it" page through the link up top to see this and other tutorials.

for the first set of prizes, you can comment anywhere along the hop for a chance to win either a ribbon carousel from May Arts or 4 spools of ribbon from Ribbon Carousel. there are also give-aways happening on both companies facebook pages. all winners will be announced through May Arts on friday, may 4th.

  15. I will definitely be coming back to take a look at the tutorial for this and check out the rest of your blog, too. This camera strap is great; it's sturdy, snazzy, and any guy or gal would love to be seen with it around their necks.

  18. I am so glad I found your blog through the Ribbon Carousel blog hop! I see so many blogs on cardmaking and papercrafting that I miss the more crafty and broader range sites like yours. So much more to do with ribbons! and I have to give you kudos on your photography!

    Thanks for the hop!
