October Blog Hop

Welcome to the Craft-Dee BowZ Spook-tacular Blog Hop.

Halloween is such a fun time of the year. Spooky things, costumes, candy, parties. With that in mind, all of our designers have made projects with a Halloween theme. If you send Halloween cards or make bags for the tricker-treater in your house, let us inspire you.

Craft-Dee BowZ has a small design team so it won't take you long to visit the team and leave comments. Leaving comments on the blogs of all the team members will make you eligible to win your very own Craft-Dee BowZ tool. The winner will be announced on Sat. Oct. 11.


To claim your prize you must contact us by email (bbruder@fuse.net) by Saturday Oct. 18. That will give you a week to claim your prize.

To start us off,  lets take a look at Donna's project.
It sure reminds me of a famous house.
Do you know what house I am referring to???
 Lets see what project she has scared up for you.


Oh that house is really scary.
 Look at that gauze and the bow is made using some sheer organza, a perfect fit for that gauze.

Donna's project was inspired by a trip to Chittenango, NY recently where she got to re-visit the home of Frank L. Baum, the author of the Wizard of Oz (back "in the day" when that was considered a scary movie).  His home and surrounding homes reminded her of this image and she just went with it.   The inked image was mounted onto a piece of corrugated cardboard which was smudged with black ink.   The sentiments were inked, torn  and added to the image.  She then dyed some gauze using purple ink spritzed with water and placed it behind the cardboard (once it was dry).  Next, all the other layers were added then topped with one bow using two different colors of purple and black.  Using scissors, she then cut the ribbon ends into slivers to create a spookier look.

Now it's time to check out Karen's spooky creation 

Here is the list of the designers in case you get lost.
