Journal Trio Giveaway

Journal Trio Giveaway at www.amazingpapergrace.com
Good morning friends!   Today I have a giveaway going on.  I’m showing you a sneak peek of the Journal Trio that is being featured on the Spellbinders website today with instructions on how to make it!  When I wrote the instructions I had to make a duplicate set so I thought it a perfect opportunity to send something out to one of my lucky readers. This is one of the three gold covered journals that come in the set nestled in a gold embellished open ended storage case tied with silk ribbon.  Have I piqued your curiosity?

The Journal Trio uses the Swirl Bliss Pocket and Swirl Bliss die set and over the last several months it has become something I reach for often – especially for gift items.  These little journals have become my ‘go to’ gift because they’re so pretty, so unique and the journals themselves can be covered in less than half an hour.   I’ve been purchasing the Journals at Hobby Lobby but the key is to find a journal about 4″ tall – and yes I’m sure at some point I’m going to make my own journals.  Gold is my favorite but I can see this in any color and I’ll soon be trying with felt and some other specialty coverings.  When I was young we had to cover our school textbooks to keep them from getting too beat up – well this project brings it back in elegant form.

Open to all readers including international!  In order to win the duplicate Journal Trio I have here, leave a comment on this post and I’ll pick a winner on May 5th.  You’re welcome to stop by once a day and in your comment, tell me what’s your all time favorite die template.  If you’re like me, you can never have just one!

A Quietfire Thanks

Thank You Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Thanks Die  and Martha Stewart Fans and Flourishes Punch - www.amazingpapergrace.com
Hiya friends, today I’m sharing a card with new Quietfire Dies!  Simply elegant, the “Thanks” was penned then put into design by my sweet friend Suzanne Cannon.  I love that it’s her handwriting and that it works in conjunction with the Thanks stamp set I used earlier this month in this post.   So I made a long profile card that fits into a business sized envelope.  Measuring 8-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ I mounted a panel punched with the Martha Stewart Fans and Flourishes border punch to get the length that I needed for the focal panel.  To give the die cut word a little bit of dimension against the cream I cut one in Aqua Mist and one in cream (darkened up with Antique Linen Distress Ink) and stacked them together with the bottom one slightly offset – that gives a little bit of shadow.

I finished up with a bow and some pearls! :-)

Craft Paper
:  Neenah Classic Crest – Natural White – 80lb smooth, Papertrey Ink Aqua Mist

So I hinted around yesterday that I’ll be starting a giveaway tomorrow.  You said you wanted to see some ideas of what to do with my new dies.  Well, this is my most favorite gift item, as of late,  and is made with my new Swirl Bliss Pocket die.  When you see how easy it is to make . . . well, I can’t wait to see what you think.   At any rate, I made this gift item in duplicate and one of the two are being given away here.  More details coming tomorrow :-)

Birthday Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using JustRite Grand Handwritten Sentiments and Spellbinders Labels 47 Decorative Elements, Spellbinders Pierced Squares, Spellbinders Blooms Four - www.amazingpapergrace.com
Good morning friends!  So happy to have had some crafty time, I have a card to share and a cool sale to talk about.  About the card . . .  try as I may, I’ll never have enough Birthday Cards on hand, so I added another one to the stash.  I’ve used JustRite Grand Handwritten Sentiments and  JustRite Grand Handwritten Sentiments  SVG along with Spellbinders Labels 47 Decorative Elements, Spellbinders Pierced Squares and Spellbinders Blooms Four.  And  oh how I love Labels 47 Decorative Elements. This is the first time I’ve used this template and I sure don’t know why, it’s absolutely delightful and so airy!
Birthday Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using JustRite Grand Handwritten Sentiments and Spellbinders Labels 47 Decorative Elements, Spellbinders Pierced Squares, Spellbinders Blooms Four - www.amazingpapergrace.comI created the frame look using Labels 47 Decorative Elements and cutting the aperature using the Pierced Squares Template, then I inset a smaller square for a contrast effect.  The small flowers were made with Blooms Four which has three small flowers that I stacked to get a variety.  The Sentiment is cut using a JustRite SVG file and I love it that there are holes in the interior.  I wanted to create a dimensional cut element by stacking and offsetting two identical layers.  I colored the edges of the bottom layer with a gold krylon pin and it reminds me of the pricey little elements you buy at the craft store.  Frugal me = happy crafty girl.
