Wonderful News!

Hello friends

So life hasn't been treating us too kind recently but thankful for the brilliant news I received
yesterday....I've made it through to the second round of Spellbinders Design Team!
It was hard for me this year to sit down and focus but I knew I really had to -
I cannot imagine my life without Spellbinders! 
Wish me luck with the further rounds.
I am also delighted to see some familiar and new names too - congratulations to you all.

Back to some craft.....
In light of my good news I thought I would revisit one of my first Spellbinders projects
I created.  A trio of goodies and using a variety of dies including Square Bracket Edge Box,
and Floral Flourishes.  The flowers are actually created from 2011 Snowflake Pendant

I was asked if there are instructions available for the envelope
gift bag I featured yesterday.  I can actually go one better!
This is my You Tube video showing how to make a gift bag from an envelope.

Enjoy your weekend and may it be sunny and bright where you are.
Take care.

Congratulations Christine - hope you get all the way through as it makes such a difference to have a representative from the UK on the team (we in the UK love SB's SO MUCH!) and you are the perfect choice. Love your box tutorial - so easy to follow and very inspiring. Crossing everything for you, hugs Jenny x

Congrats Christie, and am I in the slightest bit surprised? No, - I cannot imagine SB without you! I think you have done more for them in the UK than anyone else. I decided not to apply this time (to much else going on), keeping my fingers crossed for you, you deserve it!!!
