Spellbinders Design Team Call

Hey!!!! It's cold... I have lots to do today, and yet here I sit! :) I think it's a good start to my day! LOL! Still waiting for my coffee to kick in too! (Well, I was... but now it's after lunch before I actually am publishing this.. so don't think I just got up! LOL!)

Have you heard that Spellbinders has announced their design team call? If not, check it out here. I have to tell you that this is the most amazing company to work with! The product is second to NONE! They are cutting edge (no pun intended! LOL!), top quality, easy to use, and addictive I must say! :)
The people behind the business are amazing! They treat you like a person, not a number or an email address! Having the opportunity to travel to Arizona and meet them face to face makes it such a personal experience. You get to know the people, the business and the team.
Before trying out for the team, to be honest, I had never had the opportunity to own even one set of Spellbinders die templates! I received my first set once I made the finals! I knew I would love them... had been loving them from a distance! But once I used them it was love at first cut! Now there is no going back! I can't even imagine creating something without using my die templates!! The tough part is deciding which ones to use!! I now have SO MANY! What a wonderful problem to have!! :)
I still have 5 months left as a part of the 2011 team. I can't believe how fast the time has gone!! Yes, I plan to reapply! I have loved everythng about this! The competition is FEIRCE but I plan to do my best to make it again! Spellbinders ROCKS!! :)
So, that being said, I'll share a couple of projects that I created for them! :)
Happy Fall Y'all!
In creating this card, I used the Grand Labels Twenty Three to create my card base, Then I cut a frame using Grand Recrangles and adhered it over a rectangle of Best Creation Glitter cardstock!. After cutting some circle rings using both LG and SM Standard Circles, I heat embossed some leaves and added a bit of mica powder! A ribbon banner, stamped sentiment and button tied with twine finished this card off! It's different, and I like that! So Happy Fall Y'all!! :)

It All Begins TOMORROW
This page is a sentimental one. I created it for Summer CHA using lots of the New Release die templates. The photo was taken the night before Sammy started Kindergarden. The journaling was written at the same time. So it's right from the heart... It's a sentimental letter from mother to son.
