But it's "NOT" Christmas Blog Hop


Don't you just love a die that does double duty?  We thought so!  Today we're are having a blog hop to show you how the dies in The Charming Christmas Collection can be used year round; after all, it's not Christmas.  No worries, Christmas is coming and we'll press A Charming Christmas back into service this year but in the meantime, please join us for some year-round inspiration and a giveaway at the bottom of the post.

It's Not Christmas but About A Charming Christmas

Becca designed A Charming Christmas with lovely romantic frames and shapes and with charms.  Leave the charms in the package and you have a lovely 'everyday' die that is begging to be used all year round.  Hop around with us as we reintroduce you to the non-Christmas side of A Charming Christmas.

My Projects For Today.

****The die I'm showing today is S5-380 Snowflake Doily Etched Dies.

                   Shapeabilities Charming Snowflake Doily Etched Dies A Charming Christmas Collection by Becca Feeken


For my card today, I first adhered Adoria Square Etched Dies to the base of my card. I then die cut the large Doily out in cream and light pink cardstock. I also cut out just the outer Doily Die in gold poster board to add behind the cream colored die cut. I then added the pink Doily, off center, over the cream one using some foam dots. I then finished it off with some ribbon, flowers and pearls.


Thank you for having a special look at the versatility of the dies in The Charming Christmas Collection.  As a part of our hop we're giving away an Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month from a previous month - based on availability.

♥ Shimmery Gilded Pink Vines ♥


Hi there! Hope you are having a great week so far! I'm stopping in today to share a card I made using some Amazing Paper Grace Dies and Glimmer Plates for Spellbinders. Do you see the pink shimmery goodness peeking trough the Cannetille Rectangles? Love the shimmer of these Glimmer Hot Foils.


I used the Gilded Vines Hot Glimmer Plate along with the Bright Pink Hot Foil. I then added the Cannetille Rectangles over it with some foam dots for added dimension. Love how you see the pink shining through the elegant die cuts.


You can find all of Becca's fabulous Dies and Glimmer Plates HERE! And all of the Glimmer Hot Foil products HERE!


Hope you have an amazing day!

AMAZING PAPER GRACE MAY DIE OF THE MONTH BLOG HOP


The May APG Die of the Month, Nostalgic Serenade Card Frame Die, is absolutely stunning!! Even the name of the Die is beautiful, don't ya think?! This Die could be used to make so many types of projects!

Here is what the Die looks like~

NOSTALGIC SERENADE CARD FRAME DIE


If you want to find out more about the Club - prices, how you sign up and what's included, please look --------> HERE.
If you missed the introduction and want to know more about what inspired the Die of the Month Club, look ------->HERE.


My First Project Today:


Since it's Mother's Day, I had to make something with my kiddos in it! :) This beautiful Die fits perfectly over a shadowbox, which I made with the APG Shadowbox Frame with 3/4" Border Etched Dies.


This was so fun and easy to make. I cut a piece of acrylic large enough to adhere over the frame and then stamped onto it centering it over the picture. I then added the large Die cut over that and added lots of pearls.

 
I then hot glued a little wooden stand to the bottom of the frame and added some ribbon. This would make a great Mother's Day gift for sure!


My Second Project~


I made a simple but elegant card with these gorgeous Dies! These are one of those Die Sets that you could use over and over again and make them look so different! The sentiment I used on this card is from the Beautiful Dreamer Stamp and Die Set by Becca. I think, this would make a perfect graduation card!


For this month's Die of the Month, we cut it up and folded it up!  More inspiration is just a click away.  Stop by with each Creative Team Member to see how they manipulated this die to come up with a unique project for you to try!
