Happy Birthday Wishes to You and a Bow-it-All V2.0 Double-Loop Double Layer Bow Video Tutorial

Hi there everyone.  Can you ever have enough birthday cards?  I think not!  I always start out the year in good shape, but things fall apart about half way through, so I’m trying to get some birthday cards done ahead.  This one already went to my wonderful SIL, but I WILL get ahead this year if it kills me!
Today I’m playing along with the weekly Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge.  The theme this week is Add a Flourish. That one’s easy.  I LOVE flourishes!
I have a video tutorial for Cheery Lynn Designs Sweet William flowers HERE if you have not already seen it.  
Is anyone interested in a video on how I made these fantastic Gardenia flowers?  Is so, please leave a comment below.
My double-loop double-layer bow was made with White Delicate Stitched Satin from Really Reasonable Ribbon on my Bow-it-All V2.0.  This ribbon is my all time favorite ribbon for tying gorgeous puffy bows.  I’m including a video below to show you how I create this wonderful bow.

Zutter Bow-it-All Tutorial * Multi-Loop Triple Layer Bow with Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello there fellow ribbon and bow lovers.  I’m back with a new Bow-it-All V2.0 Video.  Today I will be making Multi-Loop Triple Layer Bows.

My card has a double-loop triple layer bow that is the perfect size for an greeting card.

With all the extra peg holes on the new Bow-it-All V2.0, you can make these bows in a very wide variety of sizes from very large for a wreath or other home dec project, to small enough for a card.
Here is my video tutorial:

Have you noticed that all of my recent cards feature summer vacation?  That’s because I need one.  Like NOW……. 

Also, our current RRR Challenge theme is Summer Vacation.  Why not head over and join in?

Here is a close up of my bow which is made with 5/8″ Sheer Ombre Kiwi/Watermelon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you’ll give this bow a try if you have a Bow-it-All V2.0.  

Don’t have one yet?  What are you waiting for??!!!

Bow-it-All V2.0 Video Tutorial * Mastering the Locking C-knot for Righties AND Lefties and a fast and easy card

Hi everyone.  I’m back today with another Bow-it-All V2.0 video tutorial to review two things that give people the most trouble.  I will be reviewing the locking c-knot and I’m demonstrating for both lefties and righties.

As I state in the video below, it is NOT mandatory that you learn this knot.  If you just can’t get it, but your bows are beautiful and they stay tied, keep doing what you are doing.  It’s a great knot to use if you can though, since it is very difficult to untie once it’s tied and tightened.

I also have a quick card to share.  This is an all-occasion card that I can use for whatever arises.  All I have to do is quickly add an appropriate sentiment to the inside of the card.

This is another card using a great digi sheet from one of my favorite etsy sellers – Cobra Graphics.  There are so many great options available, and by having these digi’s on hand, I can quickly make up a card even with the very limited time I have.

My bow is a simple double-layer bow made from 5/8″ White Delicate Stitched Satin using my Bow-it-All V2.0.  This is one of my favorite ribbons to work with on the Bow-it-All as it performs wonderfully for any type of bow.  I also added a piece of 3/8″ White Double-faced Satin above the scallop punch around the middle of the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
