belive in the magic...
Hello! I'm back with another project using new items from the Spellbinders July release. This one is my favorite so far! I used the new Winter Welcome Sled die and some fun products from Tim Holtz to create my little scene. (A list of affiliate linked supplies is listed at the end of this blog post.

Spellbinders July Release Part 3
Hello everyone! I have more Spellbinders July release products to share! Today is all about sparkle and shine! Did you know that you can foil on glitter cardstock? I didn't until I watched a reel on Instagram by the super creative JJ Bolton where she shared that you can foil on glitter cardstock. As a rule I generally don't watch reels because I find them irritating (apparently Kim Kardashian doesn't like them either, lol!). But occasionally one will catch my eye and JJ's did. I had some silver glitter cardstock that is very smooth, I gave it a try and it worked! (A list of affiliate linked products is at the end of this post.

Hello! Seems like forever since I last posted on my blog. I'm popping in today with a card for the current PoppyStamps challenge, as well as a card that I made for last week's Paper Players challenge that I posted on Instagram in order to get it entered in time. I was excited to see that the card earned an honorable mention from one of the design team members.
My next card is the one that I shared on Instagram. Take a look:
I used products from the Simon Says Stamp July card kit and did some very simple watercoloring with my Jane Davenport watercolors. I just love the vibrant colors I get from her palettes! After coloring the images I fussy cut them out as I don't have the dies, yet! Again, another simple card, but I love how it turned out.
Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day!

Spellbinders July Club Kits
Hello everyone! Can you believe it is already July? Here in the northwest we don't often have really good summer weather until the middle of July, but this year has been really bad. There were several days in June when I actually thought it was more like October! Given our unseasonable weather it has been hard for me to remember that it is summer and that July is here! Since it is the beginning of July that means all the new Spellbinders clubs have been released. You can find all the information about the clubs and how to join right here. Due to the fact that I accepted a crafty opportunity at the last minute (you will see those project in just a few days!) I was scrambling a bit to get my cards done with the July club products. And I will say that as I made all these cards it was a case if anything can go wrong, it will go wrong! (Affiliate linked products listed at the bottom of this post.
