Becca Feeken and Stacey Caron at Spellbinders - When Creative Minds Come Together
Hi there friends – we’re right on the edge of a holiday weekend, the beginning of summer and coming up on a day to savor the memory of our loved ones who served on Monday, Memorial Day.   I wanted to pop in and share a couple of things.  The first thing is as rare as a dinosaur (I’m not kidding) so you’ll want to come see – what is it?  Lets just say this is what happens when creative minds come together.

Anyone who knows me knows I’m not a selfie person, so I only let her snap one picture. I’m just not photogenic and am much more at home behind the camera – but what a great opportunity to spend some creative time!  Last month I was so busy with the roller coaster of life that I didn’t get to share this picture.  You’ll recognize her – Stacey Caron – she’s the inventor of Spellbinders and the creative force behind Spellbinders Dies – tools so instrumental in my wonderfully crafty life, and my friend!    As a newly licensed designer we spent a little bit of time on camera together chatting.   Ahem, me on camera in a video?  Check, that’s an entry for my “Do Something That Scares You Everyday” journal!

So, HERE is a link that not just a picture or just my hands – it’s me in real life even though if you really look you’ll see I’m kind of shy but there’s no doubt that I’m tickled as punch with where I am right now.

Lots of planning goes into what Spellbinders produces and the dies you see now were conceptualized more than a year ago, in some cases two.  I was amazed at the operation and and even met the folks that pack your orders (and my orders too).  In fact there are a lot of people who work behind the scenes.   I work alone so it was a bonus to me to walk into a place where the creativity is just swirling around in the air. Stacey and I poured over design ideas and well, I came back home with wind in my sails.

So here are a couple of links for you today:

Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Design and Spellbinders Tudor Rose Decorative  Card Front - www.amazingpapergrace.com
Good morning friends!  I thought I’d pop in quickly with a card to share using one of my favorite Quietfire Design sentiments called Every Blade of Grass Has Its Angel.  I used watercolors to softly tint the paper  and cut using Spellbinders Tudor Rose Decorative Card Front and the little flowers from Spellbinders Tudor Rose Collection.  Layered underneath I have a panel cut using Spellbinders A2 Scalloped Borders Two and used Spellbinders Mini Envelope Two for the pennant edges on the bottom of the card.

Since I wanted a little dimension I popped my sentiment up using Spellbinders Labels One.  Lastly, I added a soft blue bow colored with a reinker.  Yes, I got a little bit of crafty time and I’m working on a tutorial that I’ll have up in the next day or so!

Sympathy Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using JustRite Sympathy Handwritten Sentiments, Spellbinders Labels Forty Three and Spellbinders Shady Allure - www.amazingpapergrace.com
It’s a glorious morning!  I hope recent days have been kind to your soul.   Today I have a new card – granted, not an occasion I like to trumpet, but I do like being well prepared.   This month JustRite Papercraft introduced a nice Sympathy set (Sympathy Handwritten Sentimentsthat I thought was very reserved and could also be used when someone is going through a difficult time.  Oh, and a sale going on that I’ll get to in a minute.

For the 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2 card I used Spellbinders Shady Allure and the matching die template that cuts an aperture in the center – Spellbinders Labels Forty Three.  I added a belly band using Spellbinders A2 Bracket Borders One.  This one I scuffed up a little bit because I wanted to show off the beauty of the embossing.  I kept the embellishments to a minimum using a jeweled button and some fabulous cupchain by  A Gilded Life, tucking in the top and bottom of the frame.

CRAFT SUPPLIES I USED 
Rubber Stamps: JustRite PapercraftSympathy Handwritten Sentiments
Craft Paper:  Neenah Classic Crest 80 lb – Natural White, Die Cuts with a View – White Core, Gold Poster Board – Hobby Lobby
