Craft Hoarders Anonymous December Blog Hop

Welcome to the December Craft Hoarders Anonymous Blog Hop!  
You should be coming from Donna’s Blog.  After visiting with me, hop on over to Wendi’s Blog next.  To start at the beginning of the hop, and for a full Blog Hop list, go to Gloria’s Blog.

I am a hoarder of many crafty supplies and Christmas stuff is probably the worst!

I always start out with endless ideas and enthusiasm not remembering that I DON’T have endless time…  I have a bunch of Christmas ornament shaped dies that I have never used (this one is Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom ornament – 2011??  enough said!) so I decided to break one out today and make a 3-D ornament.  I couldn’t resist adding pretty Poinsettia Flowers created with the Poinsettia Strip from Cheery Lynn Designs.

My pretty double-loop double-layer bow was created on my Bow-it-All V2.0 tool using Red Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I have included a video tutorial for you below.

NEW Shimmer and Sparkle Themed Challenge on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog

Hi there.  It’s time for another fun challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog
This time we have a Shimmer & Sparkle Theme and don’t forget to add ribbons or trims to your project.  I decided to go with a clean and simple design and I jazzed it up with glitter on my snowflake and a beautiful bi-color bow made with a couple of ribbon styles from the Really Reasonable Ribbon December Ribbon Club Assortment.
This is my favorite bow.  I used two different ribbon styles from Really Reasonable RibbonCheckerboard Satin Ribbon and Diamond Satin Ribbon.  The bow was created using my Bow-it-All V2.0 Tool.

New Non-Traditional Christmas Colors Themed Challenge this week at Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi friends.  This week we have a great new Non-Traditional Christmas Colors themed challenge over on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog.  I hope you’ll head over and link up a project to share with us.

I went a little crazy with my ‘non-traditional’ colors, but I love the way this card turned out.  I love all the layers and I had a lot of fun creating the multi-colors poinsettias.
I ran a strip of Apple Green Diamond Satin Ribbon across the middle of the card under the image and topped that with some fun Christmas Lights Multi Satin Ribbon.  My bi-color double-loop bow was made with Shocking Pink and Turquoise Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I used my Bow-it-All V2.0 to create the bow.
