Decide What To Be and GO BE IT

He everyone.  Today I have a fun new card featuring a jaw-dropping double-layer, double-loop bow with Delicate Stitched Satin from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Love, love. love me a great poofy bow, don’t you?

This sentiment is so empowering.  I’ve kinda decided what I want to be (at the ripe old age of 29 + alot!), but I haven’t quite figured out how to be it just yet.  I’ll get there though…..

My double-loop double-layer bow was made with Red Delicate Stitched Satin on my Bow-it-All V2.0.  I’ve said this before, but it bears repeating.  This ribbon style performs wonderfully for these beautiful loopy bows.  If you want to see how I made this bow, please view my YouTube video HERE.
I went with this gorgeous color combination so I could play along with the weekly Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge with a theme of Keep it Krafty where you have to use kraft color paper.  I think the addition of red can black really makes it pop.  I created all my lovely roses using the small and medium tea rose dies and I used the chicken wire frame die for the background.

Have a FABULOUS (Purplicious) Birthday!

Hi friends.  I’m on a purple binge again!  I just can’t help myself – I LOVE purple and Really Reasonable Ribbon has so many fun purple ribbons I just can’t stop.
Those of you who know me know I favor Delicate Stitched Satin and I’ve used it again today in grape.

I’m playing along with the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge this week with a Roses theme.  I made the roses with the small and medium tea rose does from Cheery Lynn Designs. My center bud uses the small die cuts and the rest of the petals are medium tea rose die cuts.
My beautiful double-loop, double-layer bow was created on my Bow-it-All V2.0.  These bows are so quick and easy to make up and they really are an eye catcher!  To view all my Bow-it-All video tutorials, visit my YouTube channel.
A gorgeous bow is the PERFECT finishing touch on any card!

Thank You Very Much!

Hey everyone.  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.  Now a few days to relax a bit before real life starts up again……

I’m playing along with the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge again this week and the theme is Anything Goes.

Since I don’t have a huge collection of Cheery Lynn Dies (yet), I have to make the most of the ones I have.  The beautiful background made of kraft color paper was made with the small inner piece of my Alpine Flourish Doily.  I cut the kraft paper piece a little larger than needed and I then ran the die through the machine, moved it over next to the first cut and continued this way until the whole piece was cut.  I then trimmed it down to my desired size. 
Those beautiful roses are made with the Tea Rose Medium Die – one of my favorites.  I just love making paper flowers, so stay tuned for more in the upcoming weeks.

And of course my beautiful bow is made with one of my favorite ribbons – Delicate Stitched Satin in Royal Blue from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  It was created with my Bow-it-All V2.0.
My Thank You sentiment is a digital stamp from Create with TLC.
