Craft-Dee BowZ project for August's Challenge

Hi all
I is  Aug 1st so that means it is time for a new challenge to begin at Craft-Dee Bowz.. The theme as always is "Anything with a handmade bow" ...so you can let your imagination run riot with your projects.I have made this cute crossover card .I used an image i have had for ages from the digi doodle shop called sleeping imfant. I coloured her with promarkers. The butterfly die and shaped header lattice heart  die are both from tonic.The sentiment was one i found on pinterest.The flowers are from wild orchid.The flourish border die i used around the image is from spellbinders.I also used a cheery lynn flourish die around the flowers and a martha stewart punch for the borders where the card crossed over.The organza ribbon i have used is from my very generous boss Donna from Craft-Dee BowZ .I used my trusty Craft-Dee BowZ bow making tool to make the beautiful triple looped bows..It is my go to bow maker as it is so easy to use and creates perfect bows in seconds every time.

Fab News at Craft-Dee Bowz


BIG NEWS...BIG NEWS!!
Craft-Dee BowZ has decided to make your shopping a "one stop" retail experience! 

With a limited start, you can now purchase not only your Craft-Dee BowZ Tool and Ribbon-Ade from Craft-Dee BowZ, but also...are you ready?  Die-cuts too!!



Initially, there will be a limited selection of die-cuts available in the Craft-Dee BowZ Store located at the top of the blog under "The Store" tab.  Not only is this exciting news, but they will be offered at a 10% discount no matter who the manufacturer, what the size, or cost.  Craft-Dee BowZ has been working diligently to create a more affordable shipping charge and feels it has come up with the very best.  They will be shipping USPS (Domestic only...sorry no sales outside the US) for a fee of $4.95 which covers shipping from 1 to 4 dies maximum in one shipment.  Fees will go up with 5 or more.

So, on to the exciting new inventory!
The first dies to be carried in the Craft-Dee BowZ Store are hard to come by because they are European and sold in very few places, especially retail.  Drum roll, please.......Craft-Dee BowZ will be offering the NEWEST holiday die-cuts from SUE WILSON DIES!!  How exciting is that?  Her dies are incredible because of all the "surprise" edges, so they have a much more intricate cut than you would expect.  You can check out her videos on You Tube under Creative Expressions Sue Wilson.


Craft-Dee BowZ will be ordering dies on a regular basis and notifying you via newsletter and Facebook when new stock is available.  So, be sure to sign up for the Craft-Dee BowZ Newsletter and follow them on Facebook for up to date news on current dies.

As a reminder...there are limited supplies available, so don't waste any time!  Get over to the Craft-Dee BowZ Store and make your purchase now.  You won't want to miss this opportunity!

Wedding Day

Hi all
It is Tracey here with my post for this month.The Dt are featuring wedding projects this month so i have made this silver and white themed  wedding card .I used silver mirri card and white hammered card throughout the design.I also added some silver embossed acetate from Hunkydory over the front to give more detail.The flowers are pre made and are from wild orchid.The cute wedding rings  and flourishes are cut from  memory box dies. The sentiment and rose are embossed with silver wow powder and are a stamp set from visible image.The inside of the card has been decorated toousing the same acetate.The large heart aperture and silver heart frame around it in the centre was created using sizzix dies.The heart shape that swings in the middle has been made using cheery lynn dies.
I used my trusty Craft-Dee BowZ Bow maker to make the delicate organza bow, it is my go to bow maker as it is so easy to use
