Happy Monday Everyone!! I hope you had a great weekend!!

Today I am popping in again with another new product spotlight at Stamp and Create.  This week's product spotlight is something I treasure and use all of the time for most of my creations: The Bow Easy!!!!  This week it will be available for 25% off!!!

I wanted to create something different than a card this week so I created a gift box using the Darling Daisies stamp set illustrated by Crissy Armstrong for Whimsy Stamps and the Whimsy Summer Letter Seals (designed by Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs) as well as the Tea Tabbed Template from My Time Made Easy.The image is colored with copics and mounted on Spellbinders Classic and Scalloped Circles.  The bow uses May Arts Satin Ivory Reversible Ribbon and the bow easy.  The designer paper is Prima Botanical (another fave!!).

 For more inspiration using the Bow Easy, please visit my talented dt sisters: JoyLaceyHeidiVicky and  Jeanette.

challenges I am entering my creation in:
Creative Stamp Friends -  Anything BUT a Card 
Get Hippity with Ippity -  Buttons and/or Bows and/or Bling

Beautiful! Wonderful fussy cutting and of course your bow is amazing. I am sold...just went off and bought a Bow Easy for myself, and 2 of my crafting buddies :>) I think it was actually only 10% off though...hmmmm, maybe I ordered too early? That's what I get for waking up early!
