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. 

Leave a comment on each blog by May 24th at midnight and on May 25th, Becca will randomly pick and publish the winner.  We encourage all of our international friends to participate!  The randomly selected names will be announced on the Amazing Paper Grace Blog on May 25th.  (All giveaways for this hop are managed by and the responsibility of Amazing Paper Grace).

If your name is selected, simply claim it within 2 weeks of the announcement by sending your address through the form under the Contact Tab on the Amazing Paper Grace Blog.  There won’t be a reply back but if you leave your choice, we’ll get it, I promise.   The dies will be mailed out from Amazing Paper Grace.
