Spellbinders Event

What a wonderful time we all had on Saturday for the Spellbinders Designer Classes with Lovely Linda - Designer and Blogger for Spellbinders. We had two groups of ladies who were just as excited to be instructed under the expert guidance of Lovely Linda.  An added bonus for the girls was the equally Lovely and talented Teresa who assisted Linda and the girls.

We were all awed with the wonderful range of Spellbinders products, and their latest CHA releases which are shortly coming our way.  We can't wait to see them in-store!  Along with Spellbinders Dies and M-Bossabilities, the Grand Calibur Die Cutting and Embossing Machine was given a good workout.  This machine is such as easy tool to use, and takes so much of the work out of achieving your end result.  
Botanical Butterflies Card by Lovely Linda (Spellbinders)

If you haven't seen the new Tsukineko Memento ink colours, you'll need to call in and check them out.  What a wonderful range, and so easily blended with their little daubers.  The white crayons used on the first card add an interesting technique, and open lots of doors to creating interesting cards, and stamped images on your layouts.  I love the look of this effect!

Here is what we used on this card, you can call in and pick some up, or contact Scrapville to order your Mail Out Kit.

Now, if you like the challenge of achieving different layering effects you'll have to try the Cut and Tuck Dies. There are a range of choices to pick from, and the one used in our class was beautifully layered on embossed teal patterned paper. Check these out.

Below we have a few photos of the day, and a look at the wonderful cards that the girls created.
