It Takes a Long Time to Grow an Old Friend...

HI there!

Sorry I've been missing for a while, I have spurts of continuous work that tire me out, then it takes me a couple of days to get over it, before I start again!

I still have the projects I did for the Tim Holtz Core'dinations Pick of the Week to share with you {I meant to photograph them yesterday, but completely forgot!} so in the meantime I thought I would share some cards I was asked to do for Create and Craft to show off some spectacular Spellbinder dies...How I love my job! They were displayed at the Doncaster Summertime Crafting Show, and now they're here.


Look how the Tim Holtz Core'dinations paper pack comes into its own when used with the spellbinder dies. Gorgeous! For this Card I cut and embossed the Spellbinder Frameabilities Polka Dot Frame, then sanded using the Sand it Gadget. Core'dinations and the Sand it Gadget go hand in hand! I also used Antique Linen Core'dinations cardstock as the base for my rub on element and greeting, adding Wild Honey distress ink to the edges before adding the rub ons. I love rub ons, but don't use them enough in my opinion. Must put that right!


Supplies: Dies:  Spellbinders Frameabilities Polka Dot Frame {in Everyday kit 189279} Inks: Distress inks in Wild Honey  Papers and Cardstock: Tim Holtz Core'dinations cardstock; Papermania Hampstead Paper, Tools: Martha Stewart edging punch, Sizzix Big Shot, Coe'dinations Sand it gadget and Dust Buddy Embellishments: BasicGrey and Kelly Panacci Rub ons, Satin Ribbon.


That's all for now. I did about 16 project with these dies, including Christmas, so lots more to show you! 


Thanks so much for coming to visit!
