Thank You Spellbinders 78

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, March 30, 2011 @ 9:53 PM | , ,

Hi there! Today is the last day of my DT term on the Spellbinders™ Paper Arts Design Team. I am here to share a card I made thanking the owners of Spellbinders™ Paper Arts, Stacey and Jeff Caron, for the amazing opportunity to design for their awesome company and to thank all of the staff including Kim, Cathy, Beth, Terre and Bonnie for making my term enjoyable! I would also like to thank the blog team members especially Holly and Margie for all their help and encouragement throughout the year, as well as the entire Spellbinders™ DT :) It has been my pleasure and honor creating amongst so many talented women :) Best of luck to all of you with your creative endeavors!
Although I will not be on the Spellbinders DT, not much will change here in my little corner of the world. If you take a peek around my blog, I am quite sure you will notice how much I love the product! I pulled out a few different sheets of beautifully patterned paper from the Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden Collection and added a few embellishments including a heart made from a recycled cardboard box!
I was recently inspired by Donna Salazar to pull out some corrugated cardboard and paint and get my craft on! :) I didn't have any of the fancy corrugated product on hand, but I sure did have a recycling box full of cardboard boxes! :) LOL I cut a cardboard heart using a S4-136 Classic Heart die template then brushed on a little paint. One of my favorite unique features about Spellbinders dies, is that beautifully embossed edge that you can see in the photo below on the sweet tag:
Well, that about sums it up. Thank you for visiting my blog today and thanks again Spellbinders for such an amazing opportunity :) I will be back tomorrow, April 1st sharing some Waltzingmouse inspiration for FOUR straight days! Hope to see you then ~ have a great day and Be Sweet :)

Your work is so lovely - I look at it and sigh at my own pitiful attempts to create. Enough whinging - I love the recycling cardboard heart, and the soft flowers and the colour combo. I also loved the scrap page of your daughter's Gd8 formal, AND her 21st birthday card. I am also building up my spellbinders (I blame Claire) and love using them.
