Introducing Amelia...

Hello friends

Occasionally when I have five minutes or more I really enjoy
reading through blogs/websites and I often search out other crafters that use 
Spellbinders dies.  It was on one of these recent searches I discovered
Amelia Breytenbach from Pretoria, South Africa.

I got in touch with Amelia and asked if she would design a card for me to 
share on my blog, I sent her a couple of dies to use - Floral and Flutter Love.
(Apologies Floral is currently sold out - a really popular die this week!)
 
Amelia in fact designed 5 cards - all absolutely gorgeous!

Feast your eyes..

A banner card featuring Floral and BoBunny stamp set Love Letters.
 A butterfly card using Flutter Love, Sprigs and Radiant Rectangles.  
BoBunny designer paper Madeleine Collection.
 A pretty girl card with Floral cut away in the centre - clever idea!
It also features Flutter Love (tiny butterflies), Fancy Framed Tags One for sentiment oval, 
Docrafts Papermania designer paper Vintage Notes, 
Graphic45 vintage scrap -Secret Garden", JustRite sentiment stamp.
A beautiful vintage Love card using Flutter Love,  
Vines of Passion to cut the heart window in the top layer.
Prima designer paper Stationer's Desk,
Penny Black sentiment stamp  from Raindrops and Kisses set, and
Stampendous stamp Elegent Borders.
 A distressed vintage rose card featuring Floral, Flutter Love,
Graphic45 designer paper and vintage scrap Secret Garden, 
JustRite stamp set Timely Banners for sentiment and banner.
Thank you so much Amelia, really hard to decide on a favourite!
Be sure to check out Amelia's blog for tons of Spellbinders inspiration.

I will be searching again for guest designers so keep an eye on your email inbox!

Yesterday's Friday Die Day - the 'Happy Birthday' is a stamp, as soon as I'm back in my cabin
I'm going to find out which one and let you know.

If any of you are tuning into Create and Craft US they are featuring Celebra'tion dies,
stamps, papers and inks.  Create and Craft UK also featured some lovely new
Spellbinders dies too.  Sandra asked if I created the boards for the shows, yes I did :) 

Take care friends - enjoy your weekend, I'm still kit-making.

Hi Christine. Amelia has created some beautiful cards, and as you said, it is hard to pick a favourite : )
I will be very interested in who makes the Happy Birthday stamp from yesterday too as it is a great font.
Have a good day. Take care.

Lovely cards featured today. I don't think I've made a card yet that doesn't involve a Spellbinders die on it!

Hello Christine
Beautiful cards from Amelia. It is always interesting to see what other people do with Spellbinder's dies. Thank you for sharing. The floral die is lovely and I am not surprised it has sold out.
