Better Days are Coming

Hello and Kathy here, it's my Tuesday to post for some inspiration.  

For my hosting project, I created a card using this darling Bee Mine image from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I absolutely love Mo's and I think she and The Paper Shelter are my number one artists.  Although this image is a valentine theme image I decided to use her without that theme in mind.  Besides she looks like she is ready for a party, doesn't she? I just could not resist this sweet little image.



 Here is a close up of the image that I colored using my copic markers.


 And here is a close up of the bow, that I made using the Craft-Dee BowZ bow tool.






I hope I have inspired you and I hope that you will join in during the challenge.  Our sponsor for the this month is The Paper Shelter.  Please feel free to visit my blog at: kathyskraftroom.blogspot.com


She also has some adorable images as well, so please pay her a visit, I'm sure you will find something in her shop that you will enjoy.  Up next is Tracey.

Until next time,
Kathy

Flowers Galore

Barbara here, 
Time for the first inspiration project for July, here at Craft-Dee BowZ

Hope you all are doing OK and still staying safe and healthy. 

My July inspiration piece is not a card. In fact there is no stamping (or images) at all on this. But this project definitely called for a bow.
Let me share the project with you.


The bow - up close

My bow - I used Hug Snug-seam binding (my fav) and of course, the Craft-Dee BowZ  bow making tool.
The bow is a quad loop bow for this project. Yep a quad loop bow. Using the seam binding and the CDB bowmaker, making a quad loop is really easy, and makes for a fuller bow.

Do you have your CDB tool yet?? No???
This tool is smaller, easy to use, travels well and it's easy to store.
It will make bows from 1" to 4 1/2"
You can order yours by clicking on the Buy Now button here on the left sidebar.

Just a reminder - 
The July Craft-Dee BowZ challenge has started and runs thru July 29
The theme is Anything Goes (no bow required)
You could be the next winner,
We are looking forward to your submission.

That it for now
Stop back next Tuesday to see what Kathy has come up with
for her Inspiration Tuesday project

Summer has arrived!

Are you enjoying your summer, wherever you are? I am...I don't think there's a season I don't like!  It's the 4th Tuesday of the month so it's my turn to post on Craft-Dee BowZ!

For today's post I made a card using a Paper Sweetie's image. I love these little images and I used my favorite color, purple. I used a treasured lacy applique as well as lace. I had the perfect shade of purple pearls to add to this card.


I made a double looped satin bow and adorned it with a heart button. My 'bouquet' are ribbon flowers. I used my little bow tool to make this bow, which enabled me to make the perfect size!  My bow tool hangs right on my work table and I use it on almost every single card since I love ribbon and bows on my cards. The bow tool is small, simple to use and saves me money since I don't waste any ribbon!



Our sponsor this month is Bugaboo and the winner receives four images of their choice! There are hundreds of images at Bugaboo and four will easily jump into your cart!

Our challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ for June is ANYTHING GOES. I hope you'll join us this month and we look forward to seeing your projects!

                                                                            Thanks for stopping by!
