Bow Maker Tutorial

Happy Sunday!! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend :) I have a quick tutorial to share with you today on how I make bows for my projects. I've meant to put this together for years. I'm sure there are many ways to make bows with a bow maker, this is just how I do it. If you are like me, you don't have much time to watch videos, so I made this a short one...a little less than two minutes. Also, if you are interested, I do sell bow makers in my Etsy Store.


I put together a couple of cards for the tutorial to display the bows.


I love this couple stamp from Crafty Individuals. I cut them out and popped them up with foam tape. The papers are from KaiserCraft's Kaleidoscope stack. Love is a Die-Versions Compliments Everyday die. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, with Chloe Stems from Memory Box tucked around the edges. Her dress is covered with a Wink of Stella clear glitter pen.

Guest Desiging at The Damsel of Distressed Cards!!

Happy Friday!! I hope you have fun plans for the weekend!! I am super-excited to be guest designing for my sweet friend Becca, THE Damsel of Distressed Cards :) If you haven't visited Becca's blog, yet, you are so missing out!! She is an amazingly talented crafter with a style that ranges from vintage to distressed to grungy to CAS to humorous!! She does it all!! And she often adds tutorials, too, which are fabulous!! And her posts always make me laugh!! I encourage you to visit her right away - you will not be sorry!!


For my guest design spot, Becca asked me a few questions that you can read on her blog. She also decided that we would both CASE one of my old cards and she chose this one from July of last year. So on a fresh take of the card, I came up with these:


Lots of Distress Ink, distressed edges and glittery birds.


Both cards are pretty much the same...I stamped the trees once and then restamped without reinking for a ghosting effect.


You will definitely want to head to Becca's blog to see her take on the card. You will also get to know me a little better with a Q&A session as well. Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great weekend :)

Count Your Rainbows

Happy Monday!! I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend :) It's my turn to post on the Die-Versions Blog and I have a project to share with you using my favorite die from the newest release: Whispers Rain Boots.


The papers are all from Prima. The Whispers Rain Boots were covered in Glossy Accents for that just rained-on look ;) The circular shaker window was cut out with a Party Time Sweet Spot die. The rainbow was created with a Whispers Lacey Dots die. You can't tell in the picture, but the strips were adhered to sticky tape and then the openings were covered with sugar coating for a pretty sparkle. Whispers Daisy Flair dies were adhered under the Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. The crinkle ribbon is from 3Girl Jam.


Thanks so much for stopping by!! I hope you have a wonderful week :)
