Happy birthday



Hi .
It is Tracey here with my mid month inspiration project.
I have made a pretty box and card combo using Creative Expressions dies for the flowers, for the  main decorative die , for the square frames and the embossing detail in the back is also a folder from Creative Expressions.. Sometimes just using die cuts is all you need to make a pretty card . The ribbon was formed into this pretty bow using my CraftDee Bowz bow maker which makes beautiful single or multi looped bows  or tassells every time with no fuss at all.








I hope you like my project and that it inspires you to join us in this months challenege
I look forward to seeing your entries
Happy crafting
Tracey

A Basket of Flowers

For my hosting project, I created this 3D project using  the Large (Bike) and Small (Besties Forever) July Die of the Month Clubs.  I just adore this bike and the dog is so stinking cute.  There is also a cat that comes with the small die set as well. If you are not familiar with the Large and Small die clubs, they are awesome.  You always get a ton of dies for the amount of money you spend.


 Here is a close up of the dog that I created with the small die kit.  And a close up of the bow that I created using my 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 Patties Creations.  


She has some adorable images so please pay her a visit, I'm sure you will find something in her shop that you will enjoy. 

Until next time,
Kathy

Summer ......



Hi
It is Tracey here with my mid month inspiration project for the July challenge .I have not made a fun dome shaped card in a while so i thought i would make one for you today. I love the dimension you have to make a box to send it in !

I have used a tonic die set to create the lattice on the dome.



The papers,pink card ,green card  and sentiment  are  all from The paper boutique and are called butterfly medley..The bow was created using my CraftdeeBowz bow maker.which makes fabulous bows with ease every time.The butterflies are made using a die from a magazine i have had for a long time. I just matted them on green card and cut around them


I hope you like my project and it inspires you to join us in the July challenge with your own creations.
Happy Crafting

You're Special

Hello..... Hello..... Hello
Welcome  to the first Craft-Dee BowZ inspiration Tuesday for July

Barbara here with some cool news.........................................

Before I get to my inspiration card, I'd like to give you some great news, Submissions for July, August and September, in the Craft-Dee BowZ challenge DO NOT need to have a bow. How cool is that. We know that mailing a card with a bow is almost impossible so we thought we'd give you all a break. No bows needed on your submissions from now til October 1. So get your cards submitted and don't worry about a bow for the time being.

Since its the first Tuesday it's my turn to share a creation with you.

I decided to use an old stamp or two and a new die set.


Here is the inside sentiment

Let's check out the bow.

I know so many people who say they couldn't make a bow
if their life depended on it.
Are you bow challenged?? 
We can change that for you.
The Craft-Dee BowZ bow maker tool will solve that problem.

This is a great little tool
Yep it's small and that makes it portable. 
Takes up little space for storing it.
There are instructions that come with the tool 
and for those of you that like visuals, 
there are plenty of videos to walk you thru the how-to's.

Order yours today, just click on the Buy Now button on the left sidebar
You will love it!!!

Well that is my inspiration card for you this week.
Hope you will take a minute to check it out

Don't forget we have a challenge going on all month. 
No bow needed on your submission this month
 and the theme is Anything Goes

Stop back next Tuesday for another Inspiration Tuesday Project

Forever Love

Hi there, Joy here with a little Tuesday inspiration for you today!  I have been dying to use my lilac collection from Heartfelt Creations and thought who better to share with than you. I made a square 6in Z-fold card that came together quickly with my electronic die machines and the ever faithful Craft-dee Bowz Tool!    I really don't know how i'd make a great bow without it as I am all thumbs.  Our Challenge for June is anything goes with a handmade bow and you still have time to enter!  I can not wait to see what you have up your sleeve this week!  You can find the Current Challenge Here!




For more details about my card, please visit Joyfully Stamps

Have a great week! 
Hugs, Joy!

You can never have enough shoes !!!!



Hi
It is time for my   mid month inspiration project. I decided to just use a die cut today as a focal point and chose this pretty she die from Tattered Lace.I chose striking colours for a dramatic design.
The papers are by Craftwork cards and are called Fashionista .





The shoe  die is from tattered lace and has been cut out  in black  sizzix linen card


The embossing folder is from couture creations and is called joined together ..The flowers are made using a retro flower punch.I added faux stitching with a white gel pen around the edge to make them pop more.


The double looped bow was created using my craftdeebowz bow maker. my go to bow maker as it produces amazing bows every time .




I hope you like my project and hope to see you add your projects in our June challenge for a chance to win some images from this months sponsor.
Happy crafting

Album for my Dear 99 Year Young Auntie.

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

For my hosting project, I created a small little album for my dear Aunt who just turned 99.  The inside is quite simple and the tags are actually  tied to the album.  It was created using 4 sheets of double sided 12x12 card stock.


 And here is a close up of the bow.





I hope I have inspired you and I hope that you will join in during the challenge.  Our sponsor for the this month is Imagine That.

With Love

Hello everyone

Barbara here, and here is my Tuesday Inspiration project by way of Thursday.
 (Don't ask, it's been a crazy week)

Ya know, I think I'm stuck in a flower rut
Cause, here's my Tuesday inspiration 
and it's got flowers on it,
 of course


The image I used is from Power Poppy 
and its a Lady Slipper Orchard

The bow I chose to use on this card 
is really two single loop bows stacked on top of each other.
Here is a close up picture


These types of bows are easy to make and really look super.

Are you Bow challenged?? 
The Craft-Dee bow maker can solve that problem.


There are instructions that come with the tool 
and for those of you that like visuals, 
there are plenty of videos to walk you thru the how-to's.

Order yours today, just click on the Buy Now button on the left sidebar
You will love it!!!

Well that is my inspiration for you this week.
Hope you will take a minute to check it out

Stop back next Tuesday for another Inspiration Tuesday Project.
