Thank You Blog Hop

Welcome to the Gina K Designs team's special Spellbinders Thank You Blog Hop! I hope you're hopping along with us and arrived here from my talented friend Michelle Woerner's blog. To see the blog hop order, visit the StampTV site.

It is no secret how much I love my Spellbinder dies *wink* and I'm so excited to be a part of this hop as we showcase different projects featuring our beloved dies using the new Grand Calibur machine. When I was at CHA in January, I was able to demo the Grand Calibur to retailers and it was such a great experience. The machine works effortlessly. It is much easier to crank than my other die cutting machine, which I often have to hold still with my left hand as I crank with the right. Grand Calibur's suction works so well that you don't need to do this. It stays put as it cuts. I also love that the cutting area is HUGE! You can cut up to letter size, meaning you can die cut several shapes at a time.

Here is my first card for today's hop. I used the following dies for this one:
The label is from the Lovely Labels set and the verse is from my Christ is Risen set. The papers are American Crafts Enchanted.


And notice that border of bling? That's my favorite find at CHA called the Nestabling, manufactured by Want2Scrap. Bling and Spellbinder Nestabilities together...what more could a crafty girl ask for?

My second card features the following dies:
SB card 1
The sentiment is also from Christ is Risen and the papers are also American Crafts Enchanted.
