Six Ways to Use the Charming Cottage Year-Round

Hello friends

I'm absolutely thrilled to have been invited by Becca Feeken
to take part in this special blog hop.  
I'm joining members of her design team to show you 
six ways to use the Charming Cottage die set all year round.

This is truly wonderful die set with so many components (15!)
and hugely versatile too, you can make 
things for Christmas and special occasions throughout the year.

I've chosen to to create a Summer themed gift box.
Keeping the colours pastel, adding a trail of little flowers with foliage
and finishing with the lovely shaped tag, also included with this die set.

I'm imagining these filled with candy or perhaps a fairy cake.
Equally pop inside a piece of jewellery or handmade gift.

Now to start hopping, here is the link list:

Exciting news is that you could win!

We will be giving away one die of the winners choice, 
(excludes A Charming Christmas) 
to 1 commenter picked from the combined comments 
on all 6 six blogs.  This is open to international commenters. 
The winner will be posted on the Amazing Paper Grace blog on 
Monday, September 24, 2018

Now where can you purchase this delightful die set?

If you are visiting from the US the Charming Cottage die is available 

If you are in the UK you can pre-order through the 
Hope and Chances website here,
they are due in stock soon.

More exciting news...Becca is going to be on Hochanda,
please be sure to save the date.  
Becca's shows are on September 25 at 6pm, 8pm and 
September 26 at 9am, 1pm and 5pm.

You can watch Hochanda Sky 673, Freeview 85,
Freesat 817 or online here
and if you miss a show there is a Rewind facility.

Thank you for stopping by, be sure to visit 
all the links and don't forget to comment.

Take care friends.
