Hello friends
By the magic of Blogger scheduling you should be seeing a post.
(please let it work..please let it work!)
What is ODW?
Each month for Spellbinders®  I create various projects and one of them is a 
ODW - One Die Wonder! 
It means exactly that - just use one die set on a project, a little like my Friday Die Days.
These projects get shipped out to America and used in the big department stores -
JoAnns and Michaels.  But that means you never get to see them!
So I went to Spellbinders and asked permission to share them here on my blog - 
they said YES! 
I am excited about this as I have quite a few.
Let's start today with Classic Scalloped Hearts
Every part of this project is made using just that one die set.
  From a piece of A4 cream cardstock I created a wallet, rounded the corners and inked the edges.
I used a row of hearts to form a scallop edge and grouped the hearts to make a flower.
Inside I sprayed some regular clothes pegs with Cosmic Shimmer/Tattered Angels mists
and placed die cut hearts on each.
A nice gift of memo pegs, I use these for receipts, recipes and more -
far too pretty to be used for bills!
More ODW's will be on their way!
Take care friends.

Hi Christine. What a fantastic idea. I think it could be great for people that might not have a large collection (yet) of Spellbinders. This heart project is lovely. A pretty little gift. Take care.
