New Spellbinders, meet New JustRite

Hi there blog friends!  Let me start out by saying thank you so much — I am humbled by the sweet honor of your favor!!   I asked God for courage, and received an answer loud and clear, in a way that has left me awed and speechless.  If you left a message for me by going to my contact page and saying that you wanted to be on the pre-order list for the Peg Bow Maker, you should have received an email from me with a link to the ordering page and with my sincere thanks for believing in me.   I have yet another tool that I’ve been developing for the last year and a half that will see the light of day soon.   It’s not a do-it-yourself kind of thing but you’ve empowered me think I can actually finish bringing it to life.  Ah, courage . . .

In the mean time, there’s yet a wonderful new die template that you’ve not seen yet.  I wasn’t able to show it before CHA and it almost killed me!!  Spellbinders™ Floral Ovals is a template that I’ve been dreaming of.  I love ovals and use them often, but this one has a decorative, romantic, feminine flare.  I used two of the Floral Ovals set slightly askew to create an opening for my sentiment panel using Spellbinders™ Labels Twenty Five.  Onr top of the opening I laid  Spellbinders™ Twisted Metal Tags and Accents – I know I use that a lot!!  Paired with new stamps from JustRite Stampers that you haven’t seen yet either – I ask you to turn your thoughts toward the Easter that approaches.  Using a sentiment from JustRite called Easter Blessing Oval Medallion, I  paired it the new JustRite Fleur de Lis Background Stamp.   Up the side of the card I used Spellbinders™ Moroccan Accents that I layered with lace and seam binding and finished with a Triple Bow (Double bow + 1 on Peg Bow Maker).

Stamps: JustRite Stampers –Fleur de Lis Background StampEaster Blessing Oval Medallion
Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Cream 80lb, Bazzill
Ink:  Colorbox Chalk Ink – Prussian Blue, Stormy Sky Distress Ink
Accessories: Spellbinders™ Moroccan Accents,  Spellbinders™ Floral Ovals, Spellbinders™ Twisted Metal Tags and Accents, Spellbinders™ Labels Twenty Five, Seam Binding, Pearl Pick, Recolletions Pearls

Sincerely sweet friends, I am amazed – I read every email yesterday and responded individually to more than 250 of you, I have more to go but missed a night’s sleep somewhere in this adventure.  They were not all emails about the bow maker, some of them were well wishes and some were other people in my same situation reaching out for a shared word.  It’s a lesson to me daily that I don’t know everything about the world, but I do know that I have a treasure in the family I’ve made in blog land and I want you to know there’s not an iota of your kindness that I take for granted.

    We love and appreciate you too!! You are an original! Every wonderful creation I have seen on your blog is original. Not a re-do of someone else’s idea. You have no idea how special that is. I can’t count the times I have seen something on other blogs that was presented as their own idea when I had seen it weeks earlier on a different blog or two. Your original talent amazes me . I am thrilled the launch of your Peg Bow maker is a success. I eagerly awaiting getting mine.ReplyCancel

    Another beautiful card Becca, these dies are amazing.

    By the way I watched a CHA video earlier on by Noel Hyman from She was at the Spellbinders booth and made a special feature of your amazing project (the crown and wand with the Maroccan dies). You may want to see it.

    Can’t wait to hear what your other new tool is!ReplyCancel

  • Becky GreenJanuary 31, 2012 - 1:19 pm

    Oh Becca!!! You know the world is truely cruel!!!!!! But every-so-often, you find somewhere, someone who hears what you’re saying! I think in what you do, AND because you’re SOOOO GOOD at it, you have found a group of people out here in blogland that can identify with you & appreciate you! I’m SURE everyone of these people have dreams…whatever they may be, papercrafts or otherwise! And when you find someone, like you, who is SOOO GOOD at what you do, WHY wouldn’t others encourage you in what you want to do??? You’re SO WILLING to share with others!!!!!! (That in itself sometimes, is hard to find!) Can’t wait to see what other tool you have come up with!!!!!!!!!!!! (I’ll probably want one of those too! ) :)
    Your card today is SOOOO LOVELY!!!!!!!!!!! The lace you used resembles the GORGEOUS dies you used!!!!!!!!!!! AND blue pearls to match???? WOW!!!! I have been thinking of Easter already!!!!!!!!!!! :)ReplyCancel

  • Marcie SmithJanuary 31, 2012 - 3:15 pm

    I too love this new oval !!!! As soon as I saw it, it went on my order. I am really intrigued with the tuck and fold dies, they remind me of some older brass border templates that had come out many years ago. Each cut had to be done by exacto knife, but it was all the rage in the scrapbook world. The other amazing new Spellbinder release was the new e-embossabilities. Some of them are really gorgeous and I just couldn’t help my self. I had to ask the question many times however, before someone finally told me that you need the new rasberry adapter plate for these. So I quickly slipped that on my order as well. This was the first time thou that I can honestly say there were some dies that I actually could live without. That hasn’t happened in a really long time.

  • Kathy SJanuary 31, 2012 - 3:17 pm

    glad to hear others think as I do and I am in awe of your expertise this new die set is so pretty and you again have taken it off the field- love it thanks BeccaReplyCancel

    Becca, I am SO glad that you are marketing your Peg Bow Maker!!! My sweet husband made one for me from your pictures and description, and I am using it all the time. Best wishes on your endeavor!

    Next I asked my husband to help me with the Loom, after finding my round, hinged, wooden box at Michael’s for 9 cents. I had to buy the last two and make one for our daughter as well.

    I look forward to any and all your posts, including the absolutely wonderful one today. This card will be a favorite of mine – with the Easter verse in blue and ivory and all the Spellbinder layers and lace/pearl embellishment!

    Another beautiful card Becca! I totally agree with you about oval dies and the new one from Spellbinders will go to the top of my wish list. I am a great fan of Spellbinders products (have the original Wizard and now the Grand Calibur). I have to say I am not at all surprised by the response you received to the announcement of your new Peg Bow Maker. It’s a wonderful idea and we all appreciate what you’ve done and continue to do – share your wonderful talent with us and at no charge. I have placed my order and look forward to receiving it. Your cards inspire me and so many others, so please know that we do appreciate what you do.

    Becca, will be anxiously awaiting your new tool, I’m sure it’s brilliant…whatever it may be. I thought that the floral oval die would need to go on my list when I saw it…but now having seen what you did with it, yup, sigh, it has to go on the list. What I really need to do is win the lottery to feed my Spellbinders and ribbon addictions! (probably work better if I ever bought a ticket! lol) This is a gorgeous card, blue and cream is a favorite color combo. God has blessed you with a marvelous talent, take it and run with it!

    This is a stunning card today, but you are so naughty teasing us, especially me, with those Morrocan Accent dies as I am totalling longing for them, they are gorgeous. Also I think the way you have offset the ovals one on top of the other is lovely and they creates a lacy backdrop for the Twisted Metal diecut.
    The shade of blue you have used here is beautiful, could you tell me the Bazzill shade name please?
    All the best LindaReplyCancel

  • ANN ROBBINSFebruary 1, 2012 - 10:38 pm

    Oh My God, this is georgous. I just got the Grand Calibur two weeks ago on sale at JoAnn’s for $77 plus 30% off the following week on anything even sale items. I went crazy of course as Spellbinder dies were on sale for 30% off, mostly $14.99 less an additional 30% off. I spent $96. Of course, I went home and did the organizational thing with the cd boxes and magnets. The only thing I didn’t do was the labels. I did cut out the cover to show what is in the box so it turned out pretty well. The first of the year I did a big clean up campaign to get all my “stuff” organized. It took two army lockers and I still have a huge plastic tote full of paper. I haven’t started on my car’s trunk but all the stamps are in one box, punches in another, etc. etc. I keep them in the car so when I go to a crop, I have everything anyone there might want or need to use and it’s all in one place. Only bring in what is requested but it is there if needed.ReplyCancel
