Spellbinders Club Kits Blog Hop

 Hello, welcome at the SPELLBINDERS CLUBS January Blog Hop 

The Spellbinders design team have created gorgeous projects with the January kits to share with you. Please check each blog on the hop for inspiration.

Hopefully you have found your way to me after checking out Jean Manis blog.

For my card I was inspired by the cute sweethearts candy.

These iconic heart shaped candies are perfect to celebrate Valentine and to use in

combination with the January large die set 

I used this color palette to make my own colored cardstock and cut out all the elements.

I used a slightly darker colored cardstock to offset the die cuts.

On the three larger hearts I printed Valentine sayings.

Finally I've added a bundle of flowers and sprigs beneath the yellow heart.

Spellbinders small die of the month January 2021

 Hello everyone!

As of January 2021 I'm part of the Spellbinders large and small die of the month 

design team and here's my first card with the January small die set called "Love card creator".

I love this die set, it is very intricate and pretty.

This lovely card creator has 4 cutting dies and you can create beautiful love cards
 with it for many occasions.

 I used this color scheme with the pretty dusty blue and pink to create my card.

I die cut the heart shape in the center two times, one in light pink and one in darker pink.
If you glue the pieces slightly offset, you'll get a great effect.

I've added little white pearls on the flowers in the centre panel and blue pearls in the 4 corners.
The sentiment is made in word and then printed on the dusty pink paper.

You can find the small die of the month club here.

Spellbinders large die of the month January 2021

 Hi and welcome to my blog.

First I would like to wish you a Happy New Year. 

May 2021 bring you lots of  happiness, love, good health and laughter!!!

Today I'm sharing my first project with the Spellbinders large die of the month.

Last year I was a designer for Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace monthly die set, but this year I'm sharing my inspiration with the large and small die sets.

Today this month's large die set; a slimeline die called "kaleidoscope hearts"

This set has 10 cutting dies and is perfect for your Valentines cards but also 

for wedding/engagement cards.

I made my own cardstock by using this color scheme.

With photoshop I've created the colored cardstock I wanted to use in my card.

I die cut all the pieces, the larger panel is die cut twice, once in light pink the other in a darker 
pink to offset the pieces for a more whimsical look.

Just look at those adorable little flowers and leaves! They are super cute.

I made the sentiment in Word and printed it on pink cardstock.

If you've fallen in love with this die set as I did then please visit the 

All other Spellbinders monthly clubs can be found here.

I hope you'll visit me on the 7th when I'm sharing my make using the 
Spellbinders small die set.

Hugs, Henriëtte.

Junk journal envelopes for Craft Box UK

 Hi thanks for stopping by.

Today I'm here with my last project as a design team member for Craft Box UK.

I've been a member of the Craft Box UK design team since April 2020 and it was

 a great team to be in.

For this projects I've decided to use up some of my scrap pieces of paper and 

made these 3 pocket envelopes for future junk journals.

The paper and ephemera I used are from the Steampunk collection by Craft Box UK.

This envelope has a pocket on the front for putting in tags, journal cards or in my case, stickers.

I sewed the paper pieces together to create the pocket envelopes.

On this envelope I did some paper collaging and added a steampunk bug cut out.

These envelopes can also be used for snailmailing.

I would like to thank Anna and Claire from Craft Box UK for the opportunity and 

the awesome Craft Box UK  products.

It's been a different kind of year with the Corona virus going on in the world but I 

loved being part of the Craft Box UK team.

I wish you the best for 2021!

Hugs, Henriëtte

Fancy Fold card for Craft Box UK

 Hi and welcome to my blog.

I've made a cute fancy fold card. It is called a Crossover fun fold card and it's easy to make.

You can find a tutorial by Wendy Cranford here.

For my card I used the Come Home papers from Craft Box UK.

Isn't it a fun fold card? There are more variations as you can see in the video tutorial.

I used cut outs on the front panel and three resin flowers.

On the inside panels there's enough room to write a message or 
maybe make a pocket for a gift card.

Thank for visting my blog.

Hugs, Henriette.
