Digital ribbons are a wonderful gift to enhance our scrapbook layouts. I (Katie) love using ribbons on my pages for many reasons.

Ribbons can be an integral part of a page design as a photo holder or border. Ribbons can also be used to create unique embellishments such a ribbon flowers.

Many digital kits come with at least one coordinating ribbon. Don’t overlook these because they can really complete your page in style. If your stash could use a few more ribbons you are sure to find something that appeals to you because the digital shops are filled with all sorts of fun ribbon packs! Here are some of my favorites.
