INTRODUCING AMAZING PAPER GRACE - A CHARMING CHRISTMAS | BLOG HOP

♥ Will remain on top until 8/19/18. Scroll down for new posts using A Charming Christmas! ♥


Tis the season to be jolly!  Even though it is only August, Christmas will be here in the blink of an eye.  I'm sure you are already listing out all the cards and gifts you're gonna make, right?  This year Becca of Amazing Paper Grace has designed a Christmas Collection - A Charming Christmas - for Spellbinders and we have a hop today to show you all the goodies and things we've made.  You can see the entire collection -----> HERE.

About A Charming Christmas Collection
Sweet little charms are so fun to play with, they can be dangled off of gifts, dangled off of cards and used in 3D Projects - they are just like the icing on the cake.  You will see that the "holiday" part of most of the sets in this collection have a Charm to personalize them - they are sized the same so you can mix and match them through your projects!  Here's the big deal: Outside of the charms and embellishments you add to make these dies Christmas, separately they can be used all year-round!! Yep, we're all budget shoppers too and want to get the most use out of a die!

Join us as each Creative Team member shares their creations with two dies from the collection.  Don't forget, each of us will be giving away an Amazing Paper Grace die pulled from the comments - one from each blog. The prize details are at the bottom of my post. So, without further ado let me talk about the dies I get to introduce:

My Projects Today:





First up is S4-948 - Charming Christmas Boughs Etched Dies

                     
This is such a beautiful die that can be used in so many ways. It can be shadow layered, like I did with the gold, or you can turn one die cut one way and another in the opposite direction and then layer or use as is. And the sweet little ornament charm and snowflake dies add even more charm to this beautiful die! Such an elegant set for Christmas cards!




 
Next up is S4-962 - Charming Round Tag Etched Dies.

                   
These fun tags/charms are prefect for cards, gifts, gift bags, etc. I love that not only do you get the ornament which can be changed out to give several different looks but you also get the sweet reindeer and mitten too! I also used the new Charming Tag Sentiments Stamps and the Seasons Greetings sentiment from the Sentimental Christmas Stamp and Die Set.





Availability:
These dies are available right now on the Spellbinders website -----> HERE
