Craft-Dee BowZ Blog Hop!

Hello friends! I'm thrilled to be part of the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog Hop as a Guest Designer this month! If you have arrived here from Brenda's Blog, you are on the right track.  If you're visiting my blog today for another reason, and would like the chance to win a fabulous Craft-Dee BowZ tool for yourself, CLICK HERE to start the hop at the beginning. The theme for this hop is Butterflies and Flowers, two of my favorite things!


I've had this frame sitting around for years and decided to personalize it. I started by painting the rectangular glass pieces with Creative Inspirations Paint in Garnet, Winter Frost and Tanzanite, to match the colored glass on the butterfly. The shimmery stained-glass effect really catches the light!


I added a small flower cluster and then it was time for the finishing touch, a perfect double bow! The Craft-Dee BowZ tool makes tying bows of different sizes really easy. Before this wonderful tool came into my life, I would spend a lot of time tying and retying my bows, trying to get the loops even and the tails the right length. I actually stopped using ribbon on my projects because I wasn't happy with the look of my bows. (Gasp!) The Craft-Dee BowZ tool takes all the stress out of tying bows. I'm now using less ribbon and I don't have to borrow any fingers from my daughter to help hold the ribbon in place while I tie a knot!

Every crafter should add a Craft-Dee BowZ tool to their scrap arsenal! One lucky hopper will win a Craft-Dee BowZ tool! For your chance to win, just visit all the blogs on the hop and leave a comment on each by Saturday, June 8th. Don't forget to comment on the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog at the end of the hop! The next stop on the hop is Barbara's Blog.

Here is the full hop rotation in case you get lost along the way:
