Craft-Dee BowZ August Blog Hop!

It's time for another Craft-Dee BowZ  Blog Hop!
We are celebrating the "Guy in your life" for August. 

One of my husband's favorite pastimes, other than golf, is reading.  He loves to read and keeps a book on hand at all times.  So, a special bookmark was in order for him as the one he is currently using is looking very worn!


I really like how this bookmark turned out.  Our color theme for August is brown and burgundy.  I found some very old MME papers in my stash that were masculine and the right colors.  The chipboard clocks are ancient too and the cards are from a newer purchase.  The sentiment and image are from the Rogue Redhead Designs, "Relish Reading" stamp set.  The ink looks red for some reason, but it is burgundy IRL!  I used some of my favorite die cuts for embellishing along with trim and buttons from our August DT product.
The single loop bow was made so easily with my Craft-Dee BowZ bow making tool and twine.  You can make beautiful bows in record time with this easy to use tool

Now, onto the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog Hop!

Awesome book mark! I love the quote you added. When I'm not scrapping I'm reading, so I totally agree with the sentiment. :)

Hi, Vicky! Love your delicate bow on your marvelously vintage bookmark. Does the bow actually tie through the button? If so, did you weave the button on the tool? Looks great, even if the button is added on top of the bow. I was already a follower on your blog, and enjoy all the pretties you make. However, I've been preferring Networked blogs lately and joined via that method as well! Thanks for the wonderful tips. hugs, de {Creative Smiles}
