Friday Die Day

Hello friends
It is Friday's 5 o'clock and it's Crackerjack!! 
Does anyone else remember that programme or is it just me showing my age again?
Well, one part is correct - it is Friday and that means Friday Die Day.
This week I am delighted to show you Gold Labels Four.
Labels Four has always been a favourite of mine because of its elegant shape and knowing that they 
will work alongside Gold Labels Four is brilliant news -
(it is what Spellbinders refer to as 'building on the core').

You receive 5 die templates with this set and because they are part of the Imperial Gold collection
you get the added bonus of deboss too.
You can cut, emboss, deboss and stencil.
 This is how they look cut/embossed and debossed.
The return of the tag - spotty paper - My Mind's Eye - Follow Your Heart.
I've used the largest die cut to place behind.
I've also rounded the bottom corners of the tag.
  Layering up further die cuts.
 Keeping it simple and butterfly-ish! Les Papillion Two.
 I then found a butterfly charm to add too.
A close up picture - elegant and pretty.
Other news:
Yesterday - quite a few questions regarding Media Mixage.
It should all be arriving in the UK later this month and I will be stocking bezels, dies, blanks and ICE resin
(the little pots and lolly sticks too!)
I'm hoping the new website with shop will be emerging soon (I've threatened it enough haven't I!)
It should be much easier to browse and purchase items then - I promise to keep you all posted.
In between, always feel free to email me with any questions.

Have a brilliant weekend.
Take care friends.

Hi Christine
I remember the Crackerjack pencils too and i recall one of the games about holding cabbages ?
Looking forward to your new shop and website and most of all seeing the goodies stocked.
Lovely tag as always!

These are the most gorgeous dies ever.... and I have used them for the 'save the date' cards for my sons wedding in December. Haven't quite finished them all yet, but with a little help from the girls we should have them done soon... we chose these because they don't need any embellishments (well a pearl or two). Just when you think Spellbinders have done it all they still keep bringing out more lavish and intricate dies :).
I adore your tag it is beautiful and of course a butterfly to finish it off.... just perfect :).
Thankyou for your reply to my question yesterday... it was a big help.
enjoy the rest of your Friday ,

Gorgeous tag today, lovely colour and so very elegant. I love these dies, and your photos show the details so clearly.

Crackerjack was a fave of mine too on a Friday, Leslie Crowther and Peter Glaze......brilliant! Showing my age now!
Thank you for FDD.
Have a good day.

Morning Christine, Yes, I remember It's Friday, It's 5 o'clock and It's Crackerjack, they always ended up holding lots of cabbages, ah yes, I remember it too well ha ha.
A beautiful tag today, I love that spotty paper and I adore these Gold Labels 4.
I can't wait for the new media mixage to be available here, I love the bezels.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hi Christine. I so love your tags and this is no exception. The labels are beautiful and the little butterfly oh so cute.

Crackerjack was one of my favourite programmes. I remember they had to carry a cabbage if they got a question wrong!

Great times on C+C this week. Sue and Julia. What a treat but would love you to be on as well.

Good morning Christine
I love the tag you have made and the Gold Labels Four you used are now added to my ever growing wish list. Like you, I love butterflies as an embellishment. Thank you for all your tips and ideas.

Carolyn Bell said...

Hi Christine, yes I remember Crackerjack too, it was a great end to the school week! I love your idea of a tag sandwich, I must have a go with some of mine. Have a great weekend, I wish I lived closer so that I could attend your workshops. Love Carolyn x

Jean Z said...

Love the dies and the tag very unusual Jean Z xx

lydia jordan said...

Hi Christine,
Lovely tag as usual from the queen of tags. These dies are beautiful I'll see if I can get them for my birthday (soon to be the big 70) so of course I remember crackerjack, cabbages and more cabbages my girls loved the show.
Love your butterfly just finishes of the tag so well.

nattyboots said...

Hi Christine,

I already have these dies on my wish list [ do wish i could win a little on the Lottery ]

Your tag sandwich looks beautiful ,and the colour just hits the stop along with the butterflies.

I used to run home from School just to see Crackerjack ,in the days when Eamon Andrews was the Host , OMGoodness such a long time ago

Have a nice weekend Christine and try to take a little ME time xx

Hi Christine, you never let us down do you? Wonderful tutorial and tag for FDD.

Lovely dies and tags Christine xx hazel

Cornish Emma said...

Morning Christine, lovely dies,and love the tag sandwich, great idea. Emma

Toni said...

Thank you again for today's post Christine. Its so good to be able to see what dies look like before you inevitably put them on your @I want@ list. Love the tag, really pretty.
I used to watch Crackerjack and I can remember Eamonn Andrews introducing it before Leslie Crowther and Peter glaze. Cabbages galore, fun times xx

Maggieann said...

Stunning! Your tag (as always) is beautiful and the tutorial spot on.
Cracker Jack used be a favourite with me too~ not that I watched it~ it kept the children occupied whilst I got tea ready!
Thanks for all you share with us and all the inspiration it gives.Enjoy the weekend xx

Lynda said...

Your work as always is brilliant. I don't get these new emboss deboss dies from Spellbinder. By definition if a die embosses it must deboss, I feel I am being blinded by science, as a selling ruse. This of course does not detract from the beauty of the dies.

Lynn Hardy said...

Your tag is lovely! I think I "need" this set of dies now!

Rita said...

Wow. This is absolutely Stunning. The dies look beautiful and makes for a lovely tag. Enjoy your day. Hugs Rita x

Sally said...

Hi Christine, Yes I'm old enough to remember Crackerjack, I had a friend who had a Crackerjack pencil. I love the colours you have used on the tag, I meant to get some tags when I visited your shop the other day...oh well, next time.

Have a good weekend
Sally x

Janice said...

Christine, what a surprise.... a butterfly has found its way onto your tag LOL !!!!. Beautiful as always. I don't know if anyone else has said this but I don't think I like the gold dies. To me they look as if there are bits missing that haven't cut out properly. Perhaps I need to see them in the flesh a bit more to see then in their true colours. Take care and have a wonderful weekend. Janice xx

Beautiful Tag and clever use of the dies Christine, so simply arranged, to make a stunning project. I have a set of Radiant Rectangles gold dies but not used them yet. I wondered if you could perhaps demo these one Friday.

Sorry Christine my radiant rectangle dies are not gold, but could you please demo anyway!

Carolyn H. said...

Lovely, elegant tag Christine. I like the colours, paper and butterflies used, your right, there is somethink special about butterflies.
Look forward to new 'shop' and I could be tempted to purchase a bezel or two when they arrive.
Crafty best wishes, Carolyn x

Beautiful tag Christine. Love those dies, they are just gorgeous. That butterfly looks perfect.

Sandra said...

Good evening Christine,
Yes I remember Crackerjack, the game where you had to hold loads of things including a cauliflower! Totally bizarre, but much more interesting than the kids tv these days! Gosh listen to how old I sound!! Haha
Love the tag, (thanks)!! I will have a go at that one.
Online shop sounds great, although I am happy with the wat you work it now, totally amazing prices by the way everybody!,
I am off to get my tags out,
Crafty hugs for a fab weekend,
Sandra Riley

Hi Christine,

I was a lover of Crackerjack also and so wanted a pen (it was always in a lovely box). I have got this set of dies but have to say am a bit disappointed with them as I think I prefer more cut detail than extra emboss/deboss. Actually wondering if I am using them correctly!! Mine seem a bit flat somehow. Yours look lovely as usual. Enjoy your weekend.

Rose in Chester said...

I wasn't around when Crackerjack was on, so have I been missing things??
I also have the die but haven't used it yet because I'm waiting for delivery of the junior magnetic plate. SB say that this should be used with the Gold products. Perhaps that is why Maddie's cut dies seem a bit flat to her?
Have a lovely weekend, Christine.

Ros said...

Hi Christine looks like I am to late to enter the friday die day as my laptop decided toplay up, still its back to full working order. I am pretty sure that i am older than you and i say that cos you lokk so much younger and my memory suggests the Crackerjack announcement was " its 16.55 or 5 to 5 and crackerjack time. ha ha Love Ros X
