It's hotter than ever and yes, I'm posting a Christmas card!! CHA is in full swing and I am so excited to now be able to share some of the cards with you that I have done with the new Spellbinder's dies that were JUST released today! There lots and lots of fun new Christmas ones. This is a gorgeous wreath called Build A Wreath. It's a lot of fun because you can make it turn out different every time! And don't you just love the big bow? I used gold foil paper and black velvet paper for my card. The sentiment is from JustRite Stampers and the glitter is Martha Stewart.
If you want to get an up close look at some of the new dies and more projects made with them, you can check out Create and Craft where Kim does a stellar job showing them off on the live channel!
I hope you've gotten a chance to see some peeks of all the new goodies coming out this week at CHA. Do you have any favorites? I'd love to hear!! I'm loving all the chalk paper. So fun!
Well, me and my fam are off for a little get-away time in the hot, hot sun. I can't get enough. LOVE it! I will definitely be sharing more projects with the new Spellbinders dies when we get back. I wish I had of gotten my camera fixed before we left. I might have to snag one off the kiddos.
Enjoy your ice tea and sunshine!

It's somebody's birthday today! I have a little birthday card inspiration for any of you who may need it. This is a card that was published in the Paper Crafts Birthday Creations Vol. 3. I've had a peek and it's jammed packed with cool ideas!
I used Spellbinder's Labels Twenty-Nine and Splendid Circles. The gorgeous rose pattern paper is from Crate Paper. I chose JustRite Spring Words for my stamp sentiment.
If you haven't tried a shape card yet, you should! They are super easy and lots of fun.
Have you seen the new bezel hat pins from Spellbinders?? They are soooo cool! I can't wait to play with them. Soon.
Off to an interview. Smiles.

The days just keep turning into weeks and the weeks keep turning into months! Time has never gone faster for me than in the last few months and I can't believe that it is time CHA reveals already! I'm sooo excited because I love seeing all the new goodies that different manufactures have come out with.
That of course also means that Spellbinders is having their sneak peek week right now!! The projects that the all the designers have come up with so far are just spectacular! Although I'm not apart of this weeks reveal, I do have a lot of projects that I just haven't taken the time to share on my blog. I know...bad blogger! So, I'm going to try and make up for it this week. But you for sure have to check out the Spellbinders blog for the give-aways and incredible inspiration going on! My friend Holly revealed the most beautiful die template ever today. You will be amazed at the detail in this one!
Okay, about my card....it's not a new die but it's an old time favorite! It's the second to largest rectangle in the Timeless Rectangles set. LOVE! I simply inked the inner edge before removing the die from the paper to create the color inside the rectangle. I then stamped the flowers, cut them out, colored them and added diamond glaze to them. After they were dry I adhered them using foam squares. The flower and sentiment are JustRite stamps. The flowers are from a set called Seeds of Summer. I have some new JustRite stamps due to arrive any day now and I can't wait to play with those! I will also have some projects to share with some of the newer dies that have just been released.
Hope this project has brightened your day just a little!
