Sneak Peek: Spellbinders Summer Spectacular! Day One


Sneak Peek: Spellbinders™ Summer Spectacular Day One

Hey everyone!  I am beyond exciting about the new release of Spellbinders™ Die Templates and wish we could show them all to you, but July and CHA are just around the corner!  There are some amazing new products coming out and my mind is spinning with ideas.  Today I am honored and thrilled to be able to share a few of those ideas with you.  


Supply List


Spellbinders Supplies:
Cross Promotional Partners:
  • Want2Scrap (Pearls, Bling)
  • Glitter – Sparkle N Sprinkle
  • SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVE BY 3L (EZ Tape Runner, Foam Squares)
The new die templates that I am introducing on my projects are:

LF-016 Decorative Grand Ovals One
MSRP - $49.99

LF-016  Decorative Grand Ovals One

S4-371 Les Papillion
MSRP - $24.99

S4-371 Papillion

Both these sets are so elegant that I decided to create a wedding book that could be used as a Guest Book or even a special little album to hold some of the cherished snap shots from the big day.

1)  To begin, I used Spellbinders™ Grand Calibur® machine to cut/embossed four, Decorative Grand Ovals One #5 (#1 being the smallest) from white cardstock.  I also cut two from chipboard; one for the front and one for the back.  I adhered the white oval to the front and back of the first chipboard die-cut. Then the last two white ones to the front and back of the second chipboard die-cut. 



2)  I cut six Grand Ovals #4 (#1 being the smallest) for the inside of the book.  Next, I cut a Grand  Oval die template out of pattern paper and adhered it to the front cover of the book.
 
3) I cut/embossed Lacey Doily Accents, and adhered the strip across the book.

4)  To frame the title, I cut/embossed Decorative Grand Ovals One #1 and used foam squares to adhere it.  I used alphabet stickers to create the title.


5)  To embellish the book, I added some bling flourishes and cut out two butterflies.  I used a glue pen to adhere some glitter to the outer edges of the butterfly and also added pearls to the center. Then I adhered them to the photo.


6)  Next, I cut/embossed a rose flower and an anemone flower topper; I also added glitter to the edge of the flower and a pearl to the center.  Then I adhered it to the card. 


7)  The last piece that I cut/embossed was Spiral Blossoms One flower.  After rolling it and taping it, I added glitter to the edges and a pearl to the center.  I placed them on the book as well. 


8)  Lastly, I layered all of my pages and punched two holes through the layers.  This beautiful white ribbon was the perfect last touch, so I strung it through and tied a pretty bow. 



These Decorative Grand Ovals One die templates could work beautifully on a layout, book, altered piece, album or even a card!  And of course the butterflies are the perfect touch for just about anything!  For my next project, I combined the two to make a bright, summer card.

stamps&cars said...

Just amazing! I love what you did with the dies. But I have a question, your cut out of the large oval die doesn't have the small holes to the inside, how did you achieve that as the die doesn't look like that.

WOUW what an awesome card here, but these grand dies and these butterflies are also among my all times favorites, so I´m soooooo happy to see these, and I´m very pleased, that you as the first have shown the actual dies today. It´s nice to see, what the dies looks like too, even I have been blown away here today with the start you girls have put to the Frency this time. It´ll be really hard for the rest of the DT members to keep up with this high standard this summer. All I´ve seen today has been totally blowing me out of here ha ha ha. You girls are soooo clever, thanks so much for all the wonderful inspiration today, and your cards were definitely among them hun.
