Just Because

Whiff of Joy 2010 - Page 040

Happy Monday! The kids all have a day off from school so over at my house it is still the “weekend”! I am fairly sure that I am not going to get any crafting done today!

My creation today is for this week’s Stamp & Create Product Spotlight which is the Bow Easy. This is easily my favorite little gadget and I use it all the time. Who has time to fuss with ribbon when this little gizmo creates the perfect bow every-time?

~Here~ is a link to a video I made to show you how easy it is.

My friend Claudia made a sweet little tag a few weeks ago and she left the link to where she got the instructions…now I am linking it for you ~here~.

I did change it up and use my own dimensions….but what is new there? LOL! I needed it to be big enough to accommodate the stamps that I had in mind to use.

Okay…I {heart} Sweet November stamps and this one from the new release is possibly my favorite. This one was so much fun to color. I altered it a teeny tiny bit…I drew in a few lines on her layered slip so that it would look like each layer had white lace. It just breaks up all that pink!

I have seen a few of my blog friends stamp the image onto the inside of their card and just leave it uncolored and I really love the look so I incorporated it into my tag. All other stamps that I used came from a Stampin’Up set called: Notably Ornate. It was a happy discovery to see that the frame fit into the Big Notes Die! The patterned paper is also Stampin’Up but I believe it is at least 2 years old….I am trying to get through my stash!

Here are links to the ribbons and the stamp (all from Stamp & Create)

Lacey has tons of new stamps and goodies in her store so go have a look-see before they all get sold out and don’t forget to add in a bow easy if you don’t already have one. Believe me, you will love it!

That is it for me! Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Hugs Jeanette xxo
