NinaB Designs Blog Hop: Die Cutting Non-Paper Products

Welcome to another NinaB Designs blog hop. The NBD team and I have something exciting for you today. I challenged them to create something that uses the NinaB Designs Spellbinders die cuts from non-paper products on their projects. Did you know that Spellbinders dies can cut all kinds of material? Kim Hupke, the Educational Director of Spellbinders Paper Arts did a video showing all types of products you can cut with the dies that you can find HERE.

For my projects today, I die cut a magnet and wall paper samples with NinaB Designs' Home Sweet Home dies.
HSW-Card-material
I used an old calendar magnet to die cut the house. When I used to live in the US, I'd get these magnets in the junk mail all time. And if you don't get them for free, I know you can purchase these where office products are sold.

I was surprised how easily the dies cut this. I just covered it with pretty My Mind's Eye papers, button, lace and stickers. The main embellishment is a denim flower cut with Spellbinders dies as well. The denim is sold in sheets by Want2Scrap.

My second project is a card. I die cut some old wall paper samples that I found laying around my parents' garage when we were in the US last time. I grabbed it as it was headed to the trash. Again, this die cut so easily.

I love the texture of this medium. I have a full book of samples, so I'm going to enjoy doing this more :).

Here are the dies the NinaB Designs team is showcasing today:
Here are the prizes to be won.
Winners will be picked randomly from 5 of the designers' blogs:


Everybody is welcome to comment and be eligible to win. I will announce the winners on  May 22 right here. Due to the number of prizes being given away on my blog and my dependence on my mom to do the shipping, I have to ask that the winners email (via Contact tab above) me with their info within 4 days (till May 26) in order to claim the  prize. This will help with organization and avoiding confusion (I'm 40 now and sadly this happens more often than before :). Thanks for understanding!

I hope we'll inspire you all today! Happy hopping!
