Here are 2 of the projects I created .

Spellbinders June Jamboree

Hello and welcome blog friends ! I'm here today to share the project I created with the BRAND NEW Spellbinders In'Spire dies for the June Jamboree.

                You Make Me happy When Skies Are Grey

Here are the dies I used for my layout. I was inspired by the rain drop paper from Basic Grey, the My Mind's Eye title card and of course the super cute dies for my layout of Gabriel.

Umbrella Trio


To create this layout, prepare background layout as shown, 
then create title block as follows:

     Step one: Cut/emboss In'Spire Wellies in light blue paper.

    Step two: Cut/emboss Wellies "insert" in same paper.
                    Use Tool in One to separate paper from the die piece.

               Step three: Assemble Wellies.

Step four: Cut/emboss Umbrella in red/white patterned paper.

Step Five: Cut/Emboss one of the 3 Umbrella inserts in white cardstock and adhere with glue ,as shown.

Step six: Adhere Wellies and Umbrella to 3X4 (title) card.
Finish by adding embellishments.
