Introducing Amazing Paper Grace - A Charming Christmas | Blog Hop


Tis the season to be jolly!  Even though it is only August, Christmas will be here in the blink of an eye.  I'm sure you are already listing out all the cards and gifts you're gonna make, right?  This year Becca of Amazing Paper Grace has designed a Christmas Collection - A Charming Christmas - for Spellbinders and we have a hop today to show you all the goodies and things we've made.  You can see the entire collection -----> HERE.


About A Charming Christmas Collection
Sweet little charms are so fun to play with, they can be dangled off of gifts, dangled off of cards and used in 3D Projects - they are just like the icing on the cake.  You will see that the "holiday" part of most of the sets in this collection have a Charm to personalize them - they are sized the same so you can mix and match them through your projects!  Here's the big deal: Outside of the charms and embellishments you add to make these dies Christmas, separately they can be used all year-round!! Yep, we're all budget shoppers too and want to get the most use out of a die!



Join us as each Creative Team member shares their creations with two dies from the collection.  Don't forget, each of us will be giving away an Amazing Paper Grace die pulled from the comments - one from each blog. The prize details are at the bottom of my post.  So, without further ado let me talk about the dies I get to introduce:

My Projects Today:





First up is Christmas Cottage Box 


I created a snowy Christmas Cottage. I die cut windows directly in 'walls' to see trough them. Love that look! I die cut several scallop trims and placed them on the top to make roof tiles. I also created shutters for arch windows by die cutting just the matching outer shape, trimming it in a half and placing under the window's sides.




Second up is Sentimental Christmas


I created a Christmas card with a beautiful frame. I like a lot a inner decorative frame which I die cut in silver card stock. I also stamped one of sentiments and embossed it in silver. I picked Season Greetings but I love all the sentiments. They have pretty font and perfect size.
I placed the frame on a top of outer frame but it can also be die cut directly in outer frame an inlaid.

I would like to share pictures of Christmas Cottage I made earlier. I love this gingerbread look a lot.




Availability:
These dies are available right now on the Spellbinders website -----> HERE

  37. EEk!! That cute little house die is a must-have! My two little girls and I would need to make a whole village of those and hang them on the tree! I usually only make about 10 cards every Christmas because we send out photo cards, but I like to make handmade ones for family. My daughters also love making their own for friends and family...so between the three of us we make about 25.

  50. Oh I love Miniature cottages and houses! I have to admit my fave is the Sentimental Sayings and will definitely go order these!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I, too, am a big fan for miniature houses. My second hobby happens to be Miniatures and I have two dollhouses and a two room boxes in the works right now. A tremendous cross-over has been happening between paper crafts and miniatures in the last few years, especially in the smaller scales such as this little cabin. And I have been a faithful fan of all things Becca Feeken for over 8 years..! I love the little charms included in these sets. I teach a paper crafts class and we love to make our own embellishments rather than purchasing them. These dies are worth their weight in gold when you factor in all the things you don't have to buy when using these clever dies..! I believe in supporting the designers of these inspiring dies and the ways they can be used so they will, hopefully, be out there for me whenever my muse decides to take a vacation..! Today, you are my muse..!
