The Fabulous Peggy ..................


Hi all
I have been a very bad blogger!!!!!. I have had a major shake up of things..... Well I started my own business about a year ago and to be honest I have not really applied myself as I should to it so I have now decided to go for it and have resigned from my craft class teaching at my local craft shop and will be dedicating  my time making things for me again I have been creating like crazy for around 2 weeks ,trying new things[mixed media] making over 80  gorgeous flowery  handbags for an order ...so you see I have been busy lol...

Also I have had a massive spend fest ...mo manning digi's , mixed media essentials, Petal Lu flowers, Inkylicious inks, stencils ,brushes, scrapiniec laser chipboards....eek the list is endless,
Here is the first of my many makes. I just had to buy this little cutie from Mo Mannings digital pencil .[Along with 2 others !!] She is called Peggy and she was a joy to colour up with my promarkers .I used Dreamees papers, and the most beautiful handmade flowers from Lucinda at Petal Lu ....I used my Craft-dee bowz bow maker to create the beautiful full bow using satin ribbon you can get one for yourself from HERE 

The ribbon is from Meiflower crafts what fab prices the ribbons,gems and embellishments are from Mei.

Challenge time at Craft-dee bowz



Hi all
It is time for another challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ.  The theme for the challenge is as always "Anything goes with a handmade bow". I thought I would make something different than a card this month so here it is....A handy notepad holder. The pad can be easily adapted to fit any size notepad.
For the decoration on the front I used a sizzix bigz die for the birdcage. The tags were hand cut .The bird was made using a Stampin up punch .The beautiful  triple looped bow was made using  spotty satin ribbon from Meiflower crafts and my fantastic  Craft-Dee BowZ. bow maker... I love this must have piece of crafty kit ,it makes bow making a doddle every time.

A Little Ballet .....

Hi
It is Tracey here with my project for you for this month's inspiration over at Craft-Dee BowZ  .The Dt had a " Music to my ears theme "  and a colour combo of either teal/black or ,cream/ blackfor may and so I just had to use my favourite little Ballet Dancer from Mo Manning .I coloured her with promarkers. The musical notes to the left are made using a memory box die. The musical border  die is from Joycrafts . The papers are from My Minds Eye and are called lost and found antique.my Mpp Pack this month .
I handmade the music score rose using sue wilsons classic rose die. The rolled flowers were handmade using a Marianne D die .


The sentiment stamp is from stampin bella. I inked the edges of everything using TH pumice stone distress ink ,I attatched a cute ballet shoe charm complete with cute  twine mini bow

The fab triple  looped organza bow  and mini twine bow were both  made using my Craft-Dee BowZ  Bow making  tool ,It is so easy to use and is my go to tool for all my Bow making needs.
