Today I want to share my doodling with you. I’ve found it’s a fun pastime and often I’m surprised at how well the doodling turns out. I had watched a fellow YouTuber doodle flowers and then make them into cards. I couldn’t find any flower stamps that would work but I did find Spellbinders in’spire Caged die, and it was a great size to divide into sections and doodle.
I’ll show you the step by step for the one on the left in the video plus I’ll share still photos of all the cards shown along with one extra one to give you

Using simple folds you can create a card with lots of interest for the recipient. Start with a card base of 5 1/2″x12″. Score it at 1 3/8″ – 2 3/4″ – 5 1/4″ – 7 3/4″. Crease your score lines creating mountain and valley folds.
I fussy cut a Reindeer from the Bo Bunny Silver & Gold Collection to become the focal point of the first fold of my card. By lining the left edge with the edge of the card and extending the right side over the fold you’ll have a card that pops out at you from the

What can I say? I’m in love with Heartfelt Creations! This was a new company to me and I must say I am so impressed. The stamps in the Gateway to the Seasons Collection are gorgeous! They stamp so clean and crisp enabling you to do a multitude of coloring and cutting or to simply emboss. I’m going to share each way with you.
My first card I cut the aperture with Spellbinders Superellipse die. I decided to color the stamped image with my Copics, now keep in mind, I am NOT a Copic color expert, I’m more the colorbook kinda

Have you got your hands on the newest Spellbinders dies yet? Oh my goodness, they just keep getting better! Today I want to show you a peek of the Antique Frame & Accents die. Very pretty! I really like the Accents and Motifs collection. They are all so intricate and elegant. If you are using these, you will want to give yourself a little more time to work the paper from your die. Being impatient may lead to torn die cuts! I like a pointed tool, such as a Quickstik, paper piercer (careful not to poke through your paper), or

I am having a great time with the new Spellbinders Cut, Fold & Tuck dies! I just can not believe they are so easy to use, but the results are incredible!
You can use them with single or double sided paper, depending on the contrast you are trying to achieve. Try stamping a background on your paper then cut and fold to give a more unique appearance. Add ink, glitter mist, bling-you name it!
My son came in as I was adding the finishing touches to my card. He told me it looked complicated. HA! Boy, was he wrong! That’s the beauty

Today I would like to share a couple of my favorite pics from CHA! I don’t have photos of the Spellbinders booth since we previewed so many of their new items during the Blog Frenzy, but better than that, I conned Terre and Margie from Spellbinders to let me have a picture with them! These ladies are so talented and fun, and I have been lucky to get acquainted with them over the phone and at CHA!
Margie demonstrated some of the new dies, then helped me make a card using the new Cut, Fold and Tuck dies. Oh my gosh,

Welcome to day two of Spellbinders Abilities and Beyond Blog Frenzy! I am absolutely blown away with the incredible talent of today’s designers! When I saw the projects today, my mouth literally dropped open! All I could say was “WOW!”.
Let’s get the ball rolling today with the astoundingly beautiful S5-078 Persian Accents and S5-079 Persian Motifs. I can totally see how the filigree design inspired designer Becca Feeken to create her princess tiara and wand! I can’t wait to get these in my royal collection! I am spellbound with Becca’s Spellbinders creation! (pun intended)

Yippee! Today is the day! I am so excited to announce Spellbinders amazing new products in this Abilities and Beyond Blog Frenzy! Surprisingly I slept like a log last night.

I was thrilled to find out that they have created a brand new embossing folder which is (as they say) double the fun! The

This is not a fun post today, but we really want to try to keep the communication going with as many of our customers as possible!
We regret to inform you that due to the increased demand of the S5-055 Layered Poinsettia, Spellbinders was caught unaware and is completely sold out of this die. Their next shipment is due to arrive the end of December and will not arrive before Christmas.
We also have back order notifications on items S4-282 2010 Heirloom Ornaments and S4-334 2011 Heirloom Ornaments. We have been told not to expect these in until the end of December

2012 is fast approaching, and with it some new babies in my family! My youngest sister and my daughter are both expecting baby boys within 5 weeks of each other! I decided it would be fun to make an album for one of them out of the Teresa Collins Chic Bebe Boy pack! She has created beautiful designs for this pack as usual!
I kept the embellishments simple to leave plenty of room for pictures as well as journaling. They are all from the pack, although, I did use the Spellbinders Cukoo Clock and Classic Rectangles Large to dress up the
