A Fun Day........

We had a great day with Spellbinders today!

I was there for my lunch to help with the noon start. There was a nice group ready to learn about the dies & see the new ones. Doreen & Mary said they were busy all afternoon. I was there again after work. It was fun!

Tomorrow is day 2 from 10-5. I sure hope the weather isn't too snowy! Yes, it's snowing here tonight!

Doreen created this wonderful design using 2 oval smooth dies & one scallop oval. This is one of the cards available to make for $2.00. The card front is stamped with a burlap texture stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms. I think the wheat is CHF, too. The verse is from My Sentiments Exactly. A popular card today!

This star card is my creation.......a simple design. Yet, the Reminisce paper & foil star make it elegant. I used 2 star dies to cut the foil frame. To create the embossed edge, the die with the foil in it is run through the die cutting machine again using an embossing mat from Spellbinders. That little embossed edge really adds to the classic elegance of the star. There's another star of dark green paper behind it. The verse - from Cornish Heritage Farms Christmas Expressions set - is stamped & embossed in gold. The Reminisce paper has a sheen which didn't show up in the photo.
Check back for more photos.......... Better yet, stop at the store to see these in person!
Keep creating.......

The extravaganza was a lot of fun! How about class II, III and IV?? hint-hint ;-) There's so much to learn and do with these dies, I love 'em!
