Vicki's Diemond Dies, "Be Thankful"

Vicki here to share my November inspiration project with you! This is my favorite time of year, so creating with a fall color theme came easy to me.

All month long we are featuring fabulous die-cuts from our sponsor, Diemond Dies.  You can visit their website HERE, for a complete list of available die-cuts.  Thank you, Diemond Dies for your generous sponsorship!

The designers at Craft-Dee BowZ will be posting throughout the month, both on the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog and their personal blogs, using different Diemond Dies (some designers will be posting several times) to inspire you.  To be eligible to win the beautiful die set pictured in the post at the top of the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog, be sure to come back to THIS POST  in the blog and leave a comment.  Since there will be many projects posted in the blog throughout the month, for every comment you leave on that post, your name will be put in a pot, giving you more opportunities to win.  And don’t forget, give the designer some love on her blog too.

"Be Thankful"
This door ornament is a lightweight wooden banner cut out from the local craft store.  I covered it with cork and layered some burlap over it for texture. Next, I embellished it using Diemond Dies Fall Leaves , Diemond Dies Fern Leaf and Diemond Dies Pine Branch die-cuts.  Wow, these die-cuts are amazing!  I was really impressed with the quality and the ease of paper release when using them.  They cut the glitter specialty paper with no problem.  I tucked in a sticker sentiment and added a few fall sprays and acorns for color.

The double, multi-loop bow turned out spectacular! Have I said how much I love my Craft-Dee BowZ tool recently?  Well, if I have, sorry, because here it is again...."I love my Craft-Dee BowZ tool!"  This tool makes creating bows so easy.  I used to shy away from making bows that I could never seem to tie to my satisfaction.  With the Craft-Dee BowZ tool, the frustration is gone and my bows are fabulous.  You can order your tool today by clicking on the "Buy Now" icon in the left sidebar of the blog.  Donna has made some wonderful video tutorials that are available to help you along while using your new Craft-Dee BowZ tool!

Stay tuned for upcoming December Blog Hop!
