Mini Bows and an exciting announcement


Thank you all for asking me to show you how I made the mini bow on the altered chocolate box I shared last week.  I've put together a short video on how to make two bows in different widths and am now working on one for the pop up card shared on Mondays post. Fingers crossed it will be ready for Mondays post so do call back. 
There's excitement in Graphic 45 land today as they announce the top 30 finalists for this years Design Team Call over on their blog, so if you want to take a peek at who's made it through the tough first round click here.  They're also sharing Karen's amazing Mother Goose layout and my By the Sea layout from CHA back in January.  Can you guess where the picture was taken lol!!! As my friend Richard would say - God's Country …….. (that would be Cornwall then) 
Enjoy your day what ever your up to, congratulations to all who got through to the final round of the DT call and look forward to catching up with you again on Monday :-) C

  1. Clare I absolutely love, love, love the little bows!!! Oh my God, I have the envelope punch and it is still in the original wrapping!!! Shame on me, well no longer I will be getting it out and practice away and then show my friends how to do it. There may be a big run on the envelope board which would be great for the manufacturer's, lol!! I also just bought a die to make a bow, wished I would have seen this first but oh well no biggie!!! Thank you, thank you for sharing all your lovely knowledge with us, I so appreciate you!!!
    Love,

  6. gorgeous card, I'm working through the album at the moment but I've changed the papers to Botanical garden which is taking a while to work out the alternatives, knew I should have used the same papers
