Sneak Peek – Romancing the Swirl Collection

2018 Sneak Peek by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Sweetheart Swirl, Spellbinders Ringlet Round and Spellbinders Hemstitch Circles - for release details see
How about another sneak peek?  A tiny peek :-) ……………so there is a reason I’m working on ‘Romantic’, I love Romantic!  I love romantic enough that I centered an entire collection around a romantic feel.  In April of 2018 I’ll be introducing a collection called “Romancing the Swirl” to you.  It’s a collection of romantic calligraphic swirls and swashes with clean lines in dies.  This is my go to style.

It felt wonderful the get elbow deep in designing curls and swirls and connecting them to elements worthy of using in decoration and card making.  It will be a welcome addition to and matches very well with Amazing Paper Grace dies by Spellbinders Paper Arts.  The main die is called Sweetheart Swirl. It is embellished with Hemstitch Circles and the border is made from an element in Ringlet Round.  Shipping to retailers in April 2018, they will embellish what’s already in your stash :-)

The collection of 12 romantic dies will be shown at AFCI in January 2018.  They are available through Spellbinders for pre-order by retailers.  I hope you’ll encourage a local retailer in your corner of the world to carry them.  In the interim, this spring you’ll get to see 11 more dies with a similar look and feel collection up close!!

So tickled to be able to share some of the sweet things I’ve been working on, moreover, I so I enjoy designing. But better than that, once I can cut it all out and finally show you what was on my mind, then I’m a happy girl.  My design foot print is classic.  I try to produce items that will stay in style for long, long time.  I hope you like!!

  • Sandy ArtmanJanuary 12, 2018 - 5:32 pm

    What an exciting time for you, dear Becca!
    Based on the name alone, I knew I would love this collection. In calligraphy, flourishes are fun and fancy. No wonder all these swirls appeal to me so much. We won’t have these in time for Valentine’s Day but they’ll be great for summertime weddings…or just about anything else!
    I think you were so clever to use part of the hemstitch rectangle to anchor that lovely top border and the vellum underneath. The bottom border of the vellum is so sweet, too.
    Thank you so much for the sneak peek. I’m really excited about all your new dies!!!
    Love and blessings, SandyReplyCancel

Sure wish you were my neighbor.ReplyCancel

    Absolutely so perfect for ‘Our’ Special Valentine’s Day coming up! For you see, I met my sweet husband of almost fourteen years ago on February 14, in 2004 and we were married June 26th, 2004 :).

    I still remember him standing there with a huge Sony floppy disk camera around his neck (Which was never used that day :)), the dozen chocolate roses. (He had told me he had hunted everywhere in the airport for Real roses and could only find the chocolate ones) and the first words I said to him *blushing* “Shut up and kiss me!”

    My Hero did not arrive at SEA-TAC with a white Stallion or shiny armor like a knight, but rather in a borrowed vehicle with a silent air of being struck with awe like he could not believe that I was real (Let me tell you, I am no prize, except for the fact I have survived many traumas meant to destroy me and yet I say it is all God and not me. That and I have the heart the size of Texas even with being abused so many times.).

    Even after all these years I still see him like the Angel of God that he was and can be. He has given me memories of such happiness and bliss that cannot compare to what I was forced to leave behind for my safety. He is a very humble bashful man and that endearing quality can sometimes be angelic or it can play the devil’s advocate pushing me beyond my own boundaries of comfort and stretching me, growing me to new things and in a good way.

    Thank you Darlin’ {{{hugz}}}

    Here is to a Blessed New Year of Adventure to us all!ReplyCancel

I’ve been asked to make 2 wedding cards, to be posted to the US later in the year… thanks for the inspiration you share. XxReplyCancel

    Hi Becca,
    Still waiting for our house to sell and mad at myself for packing all of my card making supplies. However, this card is worthy of digging through the boxes and finding those supplies in order to pass the time while it snows.

    This card reminds me of Homecoming! The die-cut on top resembles a crown and the way you placed the ribbon cluster on the edge reminds me of a corsage. Very romantic! Love all of your new die cuts and card designs. Boy are you busy!

  • Carol RossouwJanuary 17, 2018 - 11:32 am
