Craft-Dee BowZ/Diemond Dies Nov. Challenge

It's time for the November Challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ.
This month at Craft-Dee BowZ, we are excited to have the fabulous sponsor...Diemond Dies!

 Diemond Dies is a company committed to producing American made dies with popular styles that will appeal to scrapbookers, card makers, altered/mixed media artists and paper crafters. Whether your style is clean and simple, vintage, shabby or something in between, Diemond Dies has die-cuts for you!

In addition to our regular monthly challenge, Diemond Dies has kindly donated the Fancy Flower set as a special prize for a month long contest found at the top of this page.


All of the designers at Craft-Dee BowZ will be posting throughout the month, both on the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog and their personal blogs, using different Diemond Dies (some designers will be posting several times) to inspire you.  To be eligible to win the beautiful die set pictured in the post at the top of the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog, be sure to come back to THIS POST  in the blog and leave a comment.  Since there will be many projects posted in the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog throughout the  month, for every comment you leave on that post, your name will be put in a pot, giving you more opportunities to win.  And don’t forget, give the designer some love on her blog too.

I was privileged to receive three Diemond Dies to use on my projects.  They are..Fall Leaves Set, Fern Leaf, and Pine Branch
 
"Gratitude"

I used the Diemond Dies Fall Leaves Set and Pine Branch on my multi layer card.  After cutting the leaves (saved for another project) from the white cardstock, I matted it with striped patterned paper in fall colors.  The pine branch embellishments are cut from brown cardstock and wrapped around the sentiment strip down the center of the card.  These dies release paper with such ease after cutting.

This little owl is admiring the spectacular bow I made using my Craft-Dee BowZ bow making tool.  It helps create bows quickly and easily!  You can own one of these amazing tools by visiting the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog and clicking on the link in the left sidebar.  And, you will be so happy you did!

Stop by the Craft-Dee BowZ November Challenge and play along with us.

Quick Quotes "You Are My Happy"

This past weekend, I experienced my first Quick Quotes Private Reserve crop! It was a power packed weekend of scrapping, prizes, and making new friends.  I was also privileged to meet a fellow DT member that has inspired me since we first met online, Dana Tatar.  She's as sweet in person as she is talented!  Here we are with one of our Quick Quote altered projects. We used our super Craft-Dee BowZ bow making tool to help create the bows.

 
I took the opportunity during some down time to scrap a favorite photo of our granddaughter and her daddy enjoying some beach time together.  It was perfect for the Quick Quote Stowaway papers that I have been hoarding since I won them on one of their blog giveaways.
 
 
I wanted to create clean, horizontal lines throughout the page to mimic the quote from the Stowaway collection along with dimension and texture.

This month, I was inspired to use the Whimsical Wine Bottle Wooden Template to create the background design for a door knob tag.
