Visit all of today’s Holiday Hoppin’ blogs:
Today I am using Spellbinders S4-303 Crown Ovals die template and Cosmo Cricket products, using the Pixie-licious line.

I have to admit I had never used a die like this before. I am now a convert! Wow! They are so fun and easy, the uses are endless. For my layout I used the die to nest the different sizes together with Kraft cardstock. To make them pop a bit more I inked the edges of the two bigger ones. It truly was not as time consuming as it may look, and I just LOVE the results. I can say that, right?? ;)




I wanted to try it with the embossing feature, so I used the biggest die, and inked the edges green after to make the embossing more apparent. Then I went a bit crazy with the sewing machine.. lol :)




Simply leave a comment on my blog to be eligible to win the Spellbinders Holiday Hoppin’ Prize Package! One winner will be chosen from all the comments on all the blogs participating today. Comments made in the first 48 hours of this post will be eligible to win. Winner’s names will be published on the Spellbinders Blog on November 22, and they will have 48 hours to reply to Spellbinders to claim the prizes.

Goodluck everyone!
Have a great day!!!
