Let's Go Scalloped!

Hello friends

Firstly congratulations to Lynn who had the winning number for last month's
Charity Kit - your goodie box is winging its way to you.

Today I've gone all scalloped!
This card features the new A2 Scalloped Borders Two -
they are so pretty! 

They vary from A2 Scalloped Borders One in that the bottom edge
is less curved.  My card is pretty simple, I wanted to show off the scallops and keep
that as the main focus.  I've used white card and salmon pink cardstock.
The embossed centre panel is Enchanted M-Bossabilities 
and the tag is Back to Basics Tags.
I am able to pre-order these as well as any other new dies,
just drop me an email.  
(I know so frustrating - we don't want to wait, we want them now!)

Plans for February's Charity Kit is under way...I'm a little excited about this kit!
I am at huge risk of giving away too many details too early. 
(Elliott is watching me type this and giving me a warning look!)
But I am going to say that it is a larger kit than normal so it will 
actually be the kit for February and March.
And contains something that no-one else in the world is going to get 
their hands on just yet... 
Okay he's definitely getting cross with me now! 

Valerie has been making up her kits and has kindly sent me some photos.
The December Kit with some pretty additions of flowers, hearts and butterfly.
 January's Kit - inking the Carnation Creations looks wonderful.
The carnation is often two tone...

Over on the website there is a new section - Pre-Loved Spellbinders.
This is where I am able to offer dies greatly reduced.
They have been used for designing or in classes but still in perfect condition.
It is worth keeping your eye on this category as more will be added each
time I do my 'die housekeeping'.

Wednesday already, it is supposed to be my day off,
that was a silly idea, I've still got a studio/shop to clean! :)
Take care friends.

Hi Christine, this card is gorgeous. I love the way you use these dies: I don't go much for cards that are overly fussy and detailed, but you always get the balance just right. Looking at the lovely makes from the kits, I am feeling so bad that I am all behind in making mine up :(..looking forward to the next one though! Hugs Carole Z X

What a lovely, soft card that is.

Lovely card Christine. I prefer fairly simple cards especially when the die is so pretty. It's also nice to see some of the completed kits. I think it's a great idea having a 'pre-loved' section on the website. My list of 'wanted' Spellbinders grows by the day and I'm very much afraid that I'm going to need a lottery win to get them all!

Wendy L said...

Love those borders, but, alas cannot afford any more. xxxx
