Just popping in to wish everyone a Happy 4th of July! I’m busy busy today preparing for a family party for my niece to celebrate her high school graduation.
I created my tiny double-loop bow on my Bow-it-All V2.0 with 3/8″ Electric Blue Satin with Metallic Edges from Really Reasonable Ribbon. This is another one of many reasons I love the Bow-it-All. You can make bows ranging from a tiny 1/2″ wide all the way up to 9-3/4″ wide. How’s that for range?! You can view all my Bow-it-All Video Tutorials on my YouTube Channel HERE.
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.
I’ve gone with one of my favorite color combinations again – purple and green. The compliment each other so nicely. I wanted to play along with this week’s Cheery Lynn Challenge, but I didn’t have any corner dies, so what’s a girl to do?? Well, you get out your dies and figure out how to make some out of what you have – that’s what! One of my favorite dies is the Cherry Lynn Designs Burlap Border, so I got that out and went to work. I like how my decorative corners came out. Whaddaya think?
