RCC22 Alter It

Hello, friends:}

Today we start a brand new RCC challenge!! Have you ever thought of all the different things you can do with your spooled items? You can scrunch it, sew it, pucker it, fold it, make flowers and embellies with it...and SOOOO much more! This week, Jessie wants us to ALTER your spooled item {RCC22}. 
Our sponsor this week is Cosmo Cricket! With their new Glubers, you can make big and small flowers and embellies in a jiff. Eric & Julie, owners of the immensely popular Cosmo Cricket, were kind enough to send the Carousel Crew Glubers to make their amazing creations this week. And for one lucky participant, not only will you get your own Glubers...but you will also receive the UPcycle Crafting Kit! Super lucky!

I was so excited to make my very first Gluber flower....I used my orange ribbon from the RCC Sept. Ribbon Kit to make a 2" circle flower. But then I started to look at it, and I decided to make it into a SNAIL! It was the perfect size. And Ashley helped me with the sentiment! I finished my card off with some Brown Sugar Divine Twine {available at the RCC}. Easy!
The RCC team would love for you to join in the fun this week! Here are the details:
  • Make your creation following the ribbon carousel challenge (sketch, inspiration, style or color) image. Be sure to include some type of ribbon, twine, hemp, lace....basically, anything that comes on a spool.
  • Your creation can be ANYTHING from cards, quilts, sewn items, paper crafts, paintings! ***Be sure to have ribbon, bakers twine, jute twine, lace, thread (basically anything that comes on a spool) on your creation! And be sure to follow the RCC challenge theme!
  • Load your creation up onto your blog or a public viewing forum like SplitcoastStampers, (use the keyword RCC22) with a direct link back to The RCC blog 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!
  • Come back to The RCC blog post and link in 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 October 3rd at 11:59pm EST.

I really hope you will play along! Please stop by the RCC blog for more details, more projects from the RCC DT, and to link up your creation! Also, please head over to The Ribbon Carousel website and check out their products--my FAV May Arts ribbon arrived yesterday!!! SOOOO excited:)

Before I go--  The Ribbon Carousel is also selling ribbon kits! LOVE--what a great idea. September's kit has a Halloween theme! FUN! Here are some links to the kits on the RCC website.
