God Bless America and Happy 4th of July!!

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.
Since one ribbon is just never enough for me, I ran a piece of Red, White and Blue Striped Grosgrain under my image and added some small pieces out the bottom using Red Diamond Satin and Electric Blue Satin with Grosgrain Edge Ribbon.

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 Big Dreams, You’ll Grow into them…….

Have big dreams, you’ll grow into them.  What fabulous advice!
Hi everyone, Bonnie here today to share a fun card and awesome bow using Delicate Stitched Satin from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

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?
I created my bow using emerald and apple greed Delicate Stitched Satin and my Bow-it-All V2.0, both from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I will include my video tutorial below in case you missed it the first time I posted it.  It’s such and easy bow and it really is a ‘show-stopper’.
