Breast Cancer Ribbons

Today I made Breast Cancer Awareness ribbons for my cousin.  She will be walking in the Avon Walk later in the year and as a fundraiser I have made these ribbons for my aunt to sale at her store.  We hope to help my cousin get closer to her goal.  So far I have spent 1 hour time and got 61 keepers and had 4 thrown out.
I used the ribbons from the Cricut Stand and Salute cartridge. The paper used was 8 1/2" X 11" So I cut it in half to 4 1/4" X 11 inch strips and used my Gypsy to line the ribbons up to fit on this uncommon size.  The machine settings were all set to 3.

The Process:
1. The sheets were split in half

2. I used two mats to speed the process up.

3. I slipped off the backing and removed the ribbons.

4. This is the garbage pile made so far and sample ribbons that I made so far.

Vocalpoint - Downy Unstopables

Recently I became a Vocalpoint member.  Today, for the first time I received my free full size sample of Downy Unstopables.  Although I haven't had a chance to use it in my laundry (I just dropped it off before the mail came), it does have a squeeze and smell bottle and my DH and I agree it smells nice.  We will be asking our laundry mat lady to use it next time to see how the clothes come out.  So you have an idea, below are pictures of what came in the box.
This is the unopened box.
The first surprise were these cute Downy socks.  They are ankle socks, just the style I prefer!!
This is the bottle of Downy Unstopables to be tried in the near future.
