Smart Bargains – Ribbon steals and deals WOW !

If you love ribbon..you need to check this place out. I was pretty surprised…. and pleasantly so I might add, to discover  a couple of new companies hidden away in the depth of my available affiliate programs.  This one instantly caught  my attention with a $10 coupon and the awesome deals I found in their smart bargain section…they should have called it Panda HAUL.. every crafter loves a good haul.

“Smart Bargains are great deals on limited quantity jewelry-making supplies. Enjoy outlet store pricing on findings,gemstone beads, pearls, glass beads, tools and much more. Shop awesome assortments that are bargain priced to sell fast.”

I don’t know about anyone else, but I don’t have a huge selection of ribbons…. I buy a bit here and there as I can afford them  …. but this place.. crazy prices.. I saw ribbons as low as 8 cents a meter.

The other thing I noticed is they sell it by the meter, or full rolls  🙂  I really liked this one, it would be fab for the vintage travel and Paris stamps I have.  1″ BurlyWood Color Eiffel Tower Printed Grosgrain Ribbons

It’s limited quantity and is available in various colors… 20 cents a meter..or $15.96 for 100 yards.

Grosgrain Ribbon, DeepPink, 6mm

 

 

 

 

 

Shipping seems reasonable if you don’t mind waiting a bit for your bargains…

and I noticed this

 

 

Sign up and they email you a $10 off a $30 or more order…. so that would make your shopping spree even more fabtastic.  At bargain prices like these, that is a LOT of ribbon LOL.  But they do more than just ribbons, if you make jewelry, or like to add charms etc  to your craft projects… they have those too.  Or you can use that $10 off to grab some tools or extra goodies that aren’t on sale.

If you come to check this out later and can’t find this old post buried in the depth of the CC archive.. never fear.. I added them to my affiliate store list in the shopping  at the top of the page.  I think I might have to bust open the old piggy bank and see if I can shake up some pennies for this one.. There are some fab deal !

I will be compensated for purchases made through affiliate links on this page

 

 

CraZart meets it’s match ….

Me!!! .. lol ..yup I was having another one of my “moments”

who knew a cheap set of pencils from Walmart and some blender alcohol could do that huh. I don’t really color with pencils….yeah you can probably tell LOL  These belong to my sons craft supplies, but we share nicely 🙂  The blender pen is actually  a Crayola refillable marker from a kids set that I picked up on clearance…. for a whopping $2.50 for a pack of ten refillable pens and the inks.  It is filled with Ranger’s Adironack Alcohol Blender Solution.

I was playing around with some more ideas and images on the Canson Mix Media paper and thought I’d have a play with coloring the whole image with pencils, not just the outlying shade effect.  Well I say whole image in pencil.. that is not totally accurate, I did indeed color it all with pencils… but I also added in a  top layer of gray “Pumice Stone” distress pen from the Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Pen Collection…and a spit of their green “ShabbyShutters”

This is “Edie” by Scrapper’s Delights.  I was going for an old gothic looking emerald velvet effect … I kinda like my grungy “dirty gurl”

The picture colors are a bit off… but hopefully I’ll get a better picture when i get her on a project 🙂  It’s 2:30 am… so it  won’t be  tonight lol.
