Introducing A Charming Christmas by Becca Feeken for Spellbinders at this blog post www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=34093
Tis the season to be jolly!  Even though it is only August, Christmas will be here in the blink of an eye.  I’m sure you are already listing out all the cards and gifts you’re gonna make, right?  This year I’ve designed a Christmas Collection and am so tickled to be Introducing A Charming Christmas – for Spellbinders. We have a hop today to show you all the goodies and things we’ve made.  You can see the entire collection —–> HERE. 

By the way, here today I show a project using the Grand Cabinet, and it is back in stock as of yesterday but in short supply!

Also, if you read through my post and look at comments, many thought this collection was sold out – lol not yet :-) It is indeed available.

About A Charming Christmas Collection

Sweet little charms are so fun to play with, they can be dangled off of gifts, dangled off of cards and used in 3D Projects – they are just like the icing on the cake.  You will see that the “holiday” part of most of the sets in this collection have a Charm to personalize them – they are sized the same so you can mix and match them through your projects!  Here’s the big deal: Outside of the charms and embellishments you add to make these dies Christmas, separately they can be used all year-round!! Yep, we’re all budget shoppers too and want to get the most use out of a die!

Join us as each Creative Team member shares their creations with two dies from the collection.  Don’t forget, each of us will be giving away an Amazing Paper Grace die pulled from the comments – one from each blog.  The prize details are at the bottom of my post.  So, without further ado let me talk about the dies I get to introduce:

My Projects Today:

Introducing A Charming Christmas by Becca Feeken for Spellbinders at this blog post www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=34093

First  up is S4-963 – Snowflake Topper Borders

I love how both of these pieces can be used on the vertical or the horizontal for easy cards.  Today I decided to go with the horizontal panel by cutting the rounded element twice.   That leaves the perfect place for a sentiment!  I used the new stamps in the set from Sentimental Christmas for the sentiment – it’s fairly large and holds its own on a card!

Second is S6-151 – Holly Jolly Christmas

Introducing A Charming Christmas by Becca Feeken for Spellbinders at this blog post www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=34093

I just love this template!!  Even though I like to make “special” cards, also during Christmas I love a card that I can make assembly line style.  This is all cut in one fell swoop and then assembled!   I wanted a card front design, in a classic style that’s an easy card make, and looks like the beauty and essence of the season.  Yep, Holly Jolly fits the bill :-)

Third up is S4-961-3D-Angel-Ornament

Introducing A Charming Christmas by Becca Feeken for Spellbinders at this blog post www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=34093

Oh my, this is one of my favorites.  It’s so easy to make – simply cut one of each angel, intersect them, tie on a loop, hang on your tree!!!  So one of the areas where I always fall down during the giving season is the tags and tie ons for bags and gifts.  Well, this ornament doubles as a gift tag!  I thought it would be so very cool to give some of the ornaments during an ornament exchange and on the bag, use a dimensional angel for the tag.

She’s so simple on her own, but for the version that is hanging in the Cabinet Card Base. I cut two of each angel and then even cut out a set of wings to insert as well.  Cut, intersect, hang and admire!  No glue here on this just cut and assemble project.

    I am relatively new to using dies in my paper crafting and every time I see your work I want to include it in my projects.

Hi sweet friends!  Two little news notes I thought I’d share with you today.  This may be the shortest post I’ve ever written but there’s a first time for everything right?  By the way, I have been designing behind the scenes and have some surprises lined up this fall.

News Note 1:  I’m so tickled to say that the Grand Cabinet from the 3D Vignettes Collection is back in stock at Spellbinders today.  This die continues to sell out and there are limited quantities available.  If you’ve been waiting for it, fly little bird.  Grab it quick —– HERE.

News Note 2:  The Creative Team and I are having a blog hop tomorrow 8/15/18 to show you a new collection.  It’s a “Charming” one and will put gift giving right at the top of your list :)  Join us at 9:00 am Central time.  Oh and as always, prizes!!post-header-bottom

P.S.  If you have been following me lately (yes, although I’ve been quite silent).  My French is coming along.  I’ve had a lot of car time and I listen to it every moment I’m in the car.  It should almost be a crime how excited I am about this.  I guess I love to learn :-)

    My beautiful granddaughter, Emma age 15, is taking C rench in school this year. We live in the southwest so Spanish seems the logical choice but she really loves French. She’s even decorated her room in a Paris theme!

How to make a Shaped Card by Becca Feeken using Amazing Paper Grace Dies by Spellbinders - Flourished Square and Hemstitch Circles - see full post and supplies at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=34084
Good morning sweet friends!  I’ve been tinkering with the dies from the Romancing the Swirl Collection, so I reached for the lovely Flourished Square to make a shaped card and embellished it using Hemstitch Circles.   If you are new here and wonder how to do that, I used the hinged technique outlined in this video —->HERE to get the front and back of the card.   Basically, you cut two pieces – one with a hinge and glue together at the hinge.  It’s so pretty to see the filigree through the front and the back.  On this one, I didn’t want an aperture in the center because I wanted to be able to stamp my sentiment there.   I’m using another new sentiment from Quietfire Design called Without Music.

Shaped Card Ensemble

I thought it would be cute to create an ensemble box to go along with the card.  I simply cut an extra diecut from Flourished Square and made a score line from the corner point of the interior solid piece to the adjacent corner point and snipped diagonally through the corner.  Then I made a lid (1-1/8″ deep) the size of scoreline square (2-3/4″).  I draped my scored and cut die over the box top and glued it down!

Thanks so much for your good wishes.  I’m continually reminded of the sweet friends I have, that visit me here.  I so appreciate you!  Oh, and you can’t imagine what’s going on in my mind after listening to Shauna Niequest – Present over Perfect.  It was excellent, uplifting and thought provoking read listen.  The book would take me weeks to read but the Audible  Book was only four and a half hours.  If you are needing something to get you centered and focused, I highly recommend.

    I love the way you have used the die to decorate the lid of the box. I’d never thought of using it like that! Love the sentiment too. I’d be lost without my music especially when crafting. Happy Monday Becca.ReplyCancel

    What a beautiful matching set Becca. This die set is so beautiful and the sentiment complements it so well. ChristineReplyCancel

    Great idea to use the die for the lid trust you to come
    up with that, the sentiment and the colours just finish it off perfectly !
    Glad you got home safe and enjoyed your book Hugs Pam XXXReplyCancel

  • Denice with a "c"July 30, 2018 - 6:39 am

    Your card is just lovely. I had watched your technique with the hinge a while back but I need to put it into practice one of these days. LOL…. I know what you mean about music… If you hear awe inspiring music it can encompass you with such a feeling of the Lords glory. Our church has such a wonderful musical group and without a doubt they are led by the Holy Spirit as you can just feel the room being filled with His presence. They say smell triggers the most memory response … I think hearing music is not far behind… Have a wonderful rest of the day… God bless…Denice with a “c”ReplyCancel

    Good afternoon my dear SoBecca,
    This truly another stunning card. I have yet to try a hinged card but will watch your tutorial one of these days when not too much is going on. Getting ready now for vacation for a month and may come back thru your neck of the woods. If I do, I will holler at ya’. So be ready for lunch treat some day after Labor Day, you just never know!!

  • Sandy ArtmanJuly 30, 2018 - 4:18 pm

    Hi, Becca,
    For a card crafter who is also a musician, I don’t think this card could be more perfect! I watched the hinge technique again to bolster my confidence to give this a try since I love all the cards that are crafted this way.
    Such a delight to have new cards to enjoy!
    Love & blessings,
    SandyReplyCancel
