New Spellbinders: A Wonderful Life

Hi there blog friends!! This is one of my fav new Spellbinders die templates – we should probably take a poll on how many times you’ll hear this.  This is something I had on my want to have list before it ever even came out – what a beautiful way to frame things!!  So  I pulled a couple of Websters Pages Journalling cards and chose to highlight bits and pieces of those – sigh!!  Nothing better than wallowing in vintage; the postage frames just beg to be distressed and paired up with something vintage.

I cut each of the frames with Spellbinders Classic Squares LG on the inside and Spellbinders S4-348 Postage Stamps on the outside.  I distressed each of the frames and the remaining pieces of the card  and added a strip cut from Spellbinders E8-005 Classic Postage Stamp Edgeabilities – what an awesome edge!!  I stopped after adding pearls and seam binding :-)

Stamps:  None
Paper:  My Minds Eye – Vintage Findings, Bazzill Vintage Pink, Paper Studio, Websters Pages – Country Estate Journalling Cards
Ink: None
Accessories: Spellbinders Classic Squares Large, Spellbinders S4-348 Postage Stamps, Spellbinders E8-005 Classic Postage Stamp Edgeabilities

Smooches everyone!!  I’ll see you tomorrow!!

    After reading yesterdays post about the Vintage CD and 5min after I posted my comment, the strangest thing happened. My postal lady was knocking on my door with a package from Crafty Secrets. I had visited their site about 3 weeks ago looking for a specific paper pad and placed an order, while their I had seen a CD offered but the picture was so small I really couldn’t see the patterns that were contained but at the last minute I went ahead and added it to my cart. I had totally forgotten about that snap decision until low and behold it appeared in my package. Guess what CD it was. It was the “Creating with Vintage”. Talk about timing. And you were right it has some fabulous patterns on it with several other goodies. I am so going to love trying them out.

    By the way, I just love your card today, and am just giddy over all the new Spellbinder dies. It is just another fabulous release once again. I am going to be broke once again but. . . . . . oh well. Have only seen one set so far that I am not just crazy about.
