RRR August Blog Hop

Welcome to the RRR August Blog Hop.
If you arrived here from Carolyn’s Blog, you are on the right track. If not, why not head back to the RRR Blog and start from the beginning so you don’t miss any of the terrific projects.
This month the Really Reasonable Ribbon Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment is a fun autumn color collection. I just love all the lovely fall colors.

I love the look of layering a pretty print ribbon over a wider satin.  I did this under my sentiment panel on this card.
My bow is a double-layer bow made with my Bow-it-All V2.0 Tool and finished off with a 15mm Open Rose in the center.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Your next stop is Teresa’s awesome blog.

I would love for you to leave a comment before you go.

Beautiful Colors of Autumn….

Autumn is my favorite season of the year with all the beautiful colors and cooler temperatures.  Today I’m sharing a CAS card that you can whip up in a matter of minutes!

The bow is made with the 5/8″ Moss Green Diamond Satin as well.
I use Scor-Tape to adhere my ribbon because it works wonderfully.  Did you know they have come out with new sizes now (3/8″ and 5/8″) which are perfect for ribbon?
Here is a close-up of the bow I made using the Zutter Bow It All Tool.  This tool helps you make the most gorgeous of bows in a matter of seconds.  Seriously, once you learn the technique, this bow takes about a minute (or less) to make.  AND, they come out perfect every time!
So, now you know why I only had time for a CAS card today.  Yup, that’s right, I was playing with my new toy all day on Sunday trying out different bows and different types of ribbon.
I’m going to get a video tutorial up soon because you will not believe how easy it is to make bows with this tool.  From teeny-tiny 1/2″ bows to huge 10″ bows.
Below is a small sampling of the different bows I made on Sunday.  I will show you how I made them all in the upcoming video.  If this bow tool is in your budget, go ahead and get one.  You will NOT be disappointed.  🙂

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  
Let me know what you think of these gorgeous bows!
