Sneak Peek: Spellbinders Summer Spectacular Blog Frenzy and Giveaway Day 1

by on June 20, 2012

Sweet Blog Friends, if you were mildly curious why I have been MIA, then I have an admission to make.  My table has been covered with new products and it’s frankly like being a kid in the candy store.  Wrist deep in some tantalizing new Spellbinders is every crafters dream so I thought I would show you one that is going to be at the top of my “go-to” list as well as a project or two to show you why I fell in love with it right away.

The new die template I’m using is Spellbinders Marvelous Squares.  It’s a mix and match die template that offers a near infinite possibilities in layers as well as an infinite possibilities of detail within those layers.  On this project I’m using a piece that has decorative edges and I’ve folded them into a star arrangement for a package embellishment, an ornament collar, and a stand alone ornament.  For the gold gift box I’m using the star as an embellishment piece.
The ornament collar below is folded from a thin vellum paper and edged with a gold pen.

For the stand alone ornament below you can see the detail from the die template on the tips of the star points.  That simply made my heart sing!!

ETA:  Many have emailed me to ask, so I’ve done some poking around understand these die templates are scheduled to ship in mid-August!  

Die Cutting Machine: Spellbinders™ Grand Calibur® machine
Dies: S4-483 Spellbinders Marvelous Squares – MSRP $24.99
Cross Promotional Partners: Scor-Pal – ScoreTapePaper
:  The Paper Studio
Ink: None
Accessories: Recollections Pearls, Krylon Gold Pen, Buttons, Joann’s Tulle, Ribbon

But let’s look at this die template in greater detail.  Here I’ve created a layered, interlocking gatefold card in a jacket that’s 6″ x 6″.  Because of all the possibilities with the layers and details on the layers, I used one die template set to complete the whole card!!  Cutouts and layers create the illusion of intricacy but one peek at the YouTube Video Tutorial I’ve created will blow away all the smoke and mirrors I used to make the card and I hope you’ll give it a try!  Here’s the card tucked away safe in a decorative jacket.

Here is the card outside of the jacket.

Then you can see how the card layers match up with the gatefold sides to open below.

And finally the inside.

I have a YouTube Video here to show you how!  (available in HD)

Die Cutting Machine: Spellbinders™ Grand Calibur® machine
Dies:  S4-483 Spellbinders Marvelous Squares – MSRP $24.99, Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Rectangles

Tea Bag folding made easy – I LOVE it Becca! Absolutely beautiful artistry with the templates only Spellbinders could make. I love Tea Bag folding but it can be a challenge, these are gorgeous.
The gatefold card is not something I would have thought of but what a creative use. Marvelous Squares – hitting the top of my list and this is the first of the new releases that I’ve seen! Of course every material you picked looks outstanding together and I love the jacket to protect your masterpiece. So many thanks for the inspirational sneek peek!

As usual, you blow me away with your designs! These must have taken DAYS to complete. The new Spellbinders dies are amazing and I can’t wait to have them available, but seeing how you used these today is soooo inspiring. Gives me hope that someday, I too will be able to create something as beautiful by using your examples!

Hi, Becca I really like how you made the star and the one with the bell on the end of it and how you decorated the box by using Spellbinder. And I really like the card you made and with a video the Interlocking Gate Fold card. I like all the decore on the card and the enveloped. Thank you for sharing the Spellbinder Marvelous Squares Dies S4-483

I wanted to comment on your very last post but was unable to so am making that comment on this post. Your post, as they often do, really spoke to me. I lost my best girlfriend suddenly in March. We spoke daily on the phone, sometimes more than once. I cannot tell you how much I miss our phone conversations, especially when I am frustrated about something. She was really there for me, especially after I lost my husband, checking on me almost daily to make sure I was ok, even after five years that he’d been gone. You really don’t know what someone means to you until they are gone from your life. She never judged me but always spoke her opinion. She was always happy to see you and you were never an imposition. She was just a truly wonderful person, very religious minded, so I know she is in good hands.

Is there a step–by-step as to HOW to fold the new squares into snowflake-like ornaments? Or does the village idiot (me) have to wing it to figure it out after shelling out too-much money for the dies and then not know how to use them properly. Loved the gate fold card but I have my planning in the works for Christmas and some paper ornaments and cards as that is all we will be able to afford this year. The hospital that saved my life from the dreaded cancer that they told me would take my life has now turned into the evil Witch of the West and will not allow me to pay off my last hospital stay ($1,156. that the insurance doesn’t intend to cover). So this will be an extra-lean Christmas, even if we can squeeze out the $24.95 plus tax and shipping to get the die needed to make something hand-made for Christmas!
So please, a video as to how to make the snowflake-like things?
