Good Morning sweet friends! If I haven’t been around lately its because I’m doing something I adore, I’m designing. I’m excited to say that I’ve just finished a new set of designs for 2021 but wait, what about now? Oh yeah, it’s the beginning of a new month! That brings me to a new favorite – the August 2020 Die of the Month – Pop Up 3D Vignette Telephone. (Please do me a favor and have a peek at my video this month – I have a little surprise inside at the 5:47 mark that is a coronavirus blues buster).

This is one of those projects that is near and dear to my heart. I can’t claim that I’m a full out scrapbooker, but I do like to give gifts that are personalized with sentiments or pictures that tell a story. I might be one of those who gets a little too intimidated to commit to a large scrapbook page or a book with too many pages, but this is so do-able!! It gives me room for a couple of sentiments and even space for a small picture or two.
Pop Up 3D Vignette Telephone
I’m always trying to remember to collect the memories while we’re in the journey. This pop up card is the perfect place to display 1 to 4 sentiments or a sentiment and a couple of pictures. I call completing the project “memory-making in biteable chunks” It took me about 20 minutes to make the phone and about 10 minutes to print off pictures and insert them. Here are the dies in the set:
While I am isolated from my loved ones, I’m ramping up to send out some little mementos. I know if I send a regular card, it gets put back in the envelope. I know if I send a Pop Up 3D Telephone that once it’s popped up – it’s likely to be displayed. Guess which option I’m going to go for – insert mischievious grin here :-)
Here’s the last project for today, it’s a gift card caddy. I love that as they lift the receiver, they will get a surprise!
That’s all for today but these are not all the projects I have to share this month. This is truly one of my favorites, and when I got the opportunity to sit down and play, I made quite a few things. I hope you’ll come back for more inspiration :-)

Just a note . . . I am the Designer of the APG Die of the Month and it is sold by Spellbinders. It is a part of an ongoing subscription club that discounts the die and renews from month to month, although you may cancel at any time. It’s a very large set and other competitor dies comparable in size are sold for more than $40.00. To purchase, it can only be ordered or changed from the Spellbinders website. I don’t have access to take orders, to make changes or to cancel orders – but the customer service reps at Spellbinders can help with any questions or changes :-) This die club is an excellent way to get a large multifunctional set each month at a discounted price that is the same every month, and within your budget. In the subscription, you can join when you want and you can quit when you want.

I encourage you to join. What’s more inspiring to have a fresh die coming into your hands each month that will compel you to create? Ultimately, my mission is to give you the inspiration to sit down right away and create several of the projects I’ve shown here. Die of the Month is fresh inspiration each month.
Friends, I can’t believe that five months later I’m still saying stay safe. But it’s true. You still need to keep up your guard and exercise caution. Beyond all, please take care of yourself. If you’re making lemonade through all of this, it’s the perfect time to get some crafting done. Reach out and tell your loved ones what they mean. Sending hugs always…
