Spellbinders September 2018 Introducing Blog Hop | A Charming Christmas

Sweet Friends, Becca Feeken with Amazing Paper Grace here.  I’m so excited to be able to showcase my new Christmas designs!  In fact, we’re having another Spellbinders blog hop to celebrate new collections. Today I’m so tickled to show you a little more of A Charming Christmas Collection that was recently released!  Stay tuned for giveaway details below, for the blog hop list and I also have some special dates to announce!!  On Wednesday, September 19th the Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team will be having a Blog Hop to show you How to use the Charming Cottage for Year-Round Occasions.  Oh, and on Tuesday, September 25th, I’ll be in the UK debuting a new collection on Hochanda – stay tuned for air times.  So, let me tell you about this collection…

A Charming Christmas is a sweet little collection that you can use to make your Christmas Cards and to add that special love to your packages, presents, and holiday giving.  They have a sweet, elegant and traditional flair but take on contemporary with just a change of colors and embellishments.  Speaking of embellishments – I created the die sets so that they are personalized to claim them as Christmas by adding the charms that come with most sets.  That means, when you are not using them for Christmas, most motifs can be used year round.   I just love cozy things that remind me of all the beautiful holidays I’ve been blessed to live.

I just love the Charming Cottage – you can make it anything you want, today it’s a pretty box!  Above,  I simply took the cottage and embellished it to match my decor for the season and it’s ready for sweet treats!!  I embellished it by adding the Snowflake Toppers and Borders and it added gold flowers with the Cinch and Go Poinsettia.


Spellbinders Introduces A Charming Christmas

I’m already finding that I reach for the Holly Jolly Christmas Card Front often.  It’s one of the easiest Christmas Cards I’ve made because the die does all the work.  I used the frame as a background here and added a sentiment on top.  This time my card is upright (portrait) but earlier I did a horizontal presentation along with the die cut sentiment that comes with the die.  Easy peasy!
