Friday Die Day

Hello friends

This week's Friday Die Day features 
One of Becca Feeken's Charming Christmas Collection dies
that set has been overlooked a little... by me!
I hadn't realised it has interchangeable insert dies (3 in total)
so you can make a variety of designs.


It's a 7 piece die set and the approximate measurements are:

Stocking Charm: 1.85 x 1.10 in 4.70 x 2.80 cm
Decorative Inserts (3 pcs): 2.00 x 1.55 in 5.10 x 3.90 cm
Tag: 2.50 x 4.30 in 6.40 x 10.90 cm
Pocket: 3.05 x 2.30 in 7.70 x 5.80 cm

I've used white card and die cut the outer tag, the pocket
and selected the scroll-like insert.
I did not emboss as it already put in the score lines 
to fold the pocket.


The inserts have an outer die, I cut an extra one as this can be placed
at the top of the tag panel for more decoration.


Folding over the three sides of the pocket along the score lines.


Sliding the tag into the pocket and fixing on the reverse.


Adding that additional die cut to the top panel,
you can of course mix and match or leave it plain for 
writing/stamping a sentiment.


I popped in a gift card, added twine, a mini poinsettia
and a reindeer charm (available in our latest Hope and Charm-ing Collection
Winter Woodland.


Really struggled with lighting this week to photograph projects
but hoping you get the gist! 


Items used today with clickable links:


charming, you can see more designs here
this one has been the hardest to get hold of!

Wishing you all a lovely weekend, I hope to be 
putting my Christmas tree up and please stop by 
on Sunday, it's Charity Kit Day, our last one for a little while.

Take care friends.

Big Thanks and Woodland Winter

Hello friends

Firstly lots of thanks for your kind comments and messages
regarding my Mum.
She has also read them and is very touched.
Makes a lovely difference knowing people
out there have you in their thoughts and care so much,
big love and hugs to you all.


Today I'm in my cabin catching up with bits and bobs
including the latest Hope and Charm-ing collection
which is Woodland Winter.
I do like sourcing these charms, this time all things found
in the woods at winter - trees, leaves, deer, fox - unicorn?? Maybe!


This is our last mixed collection, which is always a bargain,
30+ charms in each bag.


We will still have lots of charm choices including
these latest 3D items - Reindeer and Silver Tone Leaves.



So keep checking back as I keep finding lots and lots
of charms I adore and want to share them with you.

Take care friends, have a great start to the week.

Winning Ticket and Charity Kit News...

Hello friends

This month's charity kit was an instant sell out,
big thanks to you all.

It featured the Charming Cottage Box.
I've tried to get more of these dies into stock but they didn't 
arrive with my last order but if you would like one
please message me and I'll do my absolute best :) 


Time to rummage in your kit bags please.
The winning ticket is...


If you have number 236 please email me at 
hope-chances@live.co.uk
with your details and a goody bag will be on its way to you.

Some news...

Many of you know I create the monthly kits with the 
help of my lovely Mum, she is a demon die-cutter
as well as the best Bella Grandmother!



Unfortunately right now, she's quite poorly and undergoing
some treatment so I'm going to have to put the charity kits on 
hold for a little while.

I do have December's kit planned (it's fun and festive) 
and that will be available next Sunday. 

I'm so proud of how many kits we have created so far 
and the families we have helped at Ronald McDonald House.

Also , if you've missed any or would like to take a look at previous
charity or workshop kits,
they are all listed on the website here.

Take care friends and wishing you a lovely Sunday.
