I folded these just for you...

Template/Embellishment
Commercial Use
Stitched Ribbon (Folded)
-FREEBIE-
 
Since I gave you the straight stitched ribbons in the last post, I felt they needed a little jazzier version as well, so here is the same set of ribbons - but all funny and folded this time!  Again, offered in 12 muted colors, as well as light and dark grayscale.  All created at 300 ppi, png format.  As has become my habit lately, these are available for commercial use - please remember that it gives me a great emotional (and creative) boost to see my CU items used in your kits or layouts, so please send me previews of what you have done with my designs.  (And if you permit, I'd love to post such creations to my blog to share with my other readers - along with a link to your site, of course!)  So, let's see what you come up with!  :)
 
Also, please remember that I'd be happy to try to fulfill requests - I can't promise that I'll be able to make everything you ask (I'm still a designing newbie), but I'd love to try.  Have you ever been making a kit and thought, " I wish I had a _____ - it would be just perfect for this kit..." ?  Well, now you can just step right up and ask for it. Be as specific as you can about what you'd like.  For example, if you need a bow in a particular type of ribbon, with a particular style, even a certain basic shape (you can just send me a rough sketch of the shape you want) - just give me the details and I'll try to make it for you.  Just e-mail your request to me - I try to answer all e-mails within a couple of days.
 
The understanding, though, is that if I'm making requested designs for free, I would plan to share them with others on the blog - after all, the more people that can benefit from it, the better, from my point of view.  (However, if anyone feels it is important that the design be exclusively theirs, I'll be glad to discuss options with you - just e-mail me.)

Notes for the day:
We started the day with a fantastic show of love from our kids (see previous post)...Also today, we took our minivans (with 5 kids, we sure need them) for their safety and emissions inspections. They are both Toyota Siennas.  Mine passed with no problem - it's our young vehicle at only about 110,000 miles.  Don's minivan, however is a tiny bit older (we've had it for over 10 years) and has 285,000 miles.  It's been a GREAT vehicle, rarely with any maintenance needed.  We intended to drive it until after 300,000 miles.  But alas, it has now failed its emissions inspection and needs a catalytic converter to pass inspection.  The converter will cost more than the van is worth at its age, so it's going to minivan heaven tonight...I did some quick investigating of Toyota's Certified Used Vehicles online, found one essentially just like mine, same year and all, but a different color.  It might just be too weird, even for us, to have the same make, model, year AND color!  So, as soon as Don returned from work, I told him his van's grim prognosis and sent him packing to St. Louis to look at the replacement I'd found.  And the verdict is...it's a winner!  He's happily driving it home as I type this...  :)
 
Goodnight all,
Jeanie

Ah, it's good to have a new Toy! We have 3 Hondas and a Toyota in our fleet right now, LOL. Learned to go that direction the hard way, too. The only other vehicle that has come CLOSE to being as reliable was the Jeep Cherokee, but as it met its demise in an intersection (attacked by a Beemer, no less) we are now all driving reliable and low maintenance.

The ribbons are lovely. You have no idea how I hate taking pictures of stuff - don't mind extracting but uffda, the pictures! Thanks & hugs!

Thank you so much Jeanne for the ribbons! They look fantastic! What a sweet thing for the girls to do. I know you'll cherish those memories forever. So sorry about you having to get a new van, but at least you found one to suit you and so quickly. Hope everything works out with it.
So happy you had such a wonderful day!

And I promise as soon as I use something I will drop by, like Dinphy did, with a link to what I make. BTW I found you through Dinphy, she has some beautiful kits, don't you think.

I've been reading and collecting your freebies for a few posts ;) Sorry to hear about your van :( Couldn't you have gotten an after market part? We did for the Lexus but then again they quit testing emissions in FLA when I was a little girl back in the 70's I think? Oh, is there a website for the school you chose for your daughter? It sounds very interesting and although my little ones are only 2 and 3 I wouldn't mind looking into it. Thank You for such an interesting blog AND all the freebies you have shared :)
