So I announced last week that FSJ and Spellbinders are merging companies and that FSJ would no longer be a direct sales company but will be retail and how extremely HAPPY this news makes me! I love Spellbinders dies and have been a member of the Small Die of the Month Club for a little while now. I’ve been eyeing the Card Kit of the Month and this month’s kit was so wonderful I took the plunge and joined (there is no obligation with any of the clubs, you can unsub at ANY time!) I issued a challenge to myself to USE every bit of this kit just to see how far it would stretch and boy I haven’t crafted this much in awhile. I made 10 cards, 1 12×12 scrapbook page and 3 pocket pages and I STILL haven’t used all the product and haven’t used the die set yet but I’m planning to in the next few days. I hope you enjoy all the projects I’ve made and I hope it inspires you to get this kit and create also. The only “outside” products I used were some ink for the stamps, 1 piece of 12×12 cardstock for the large layout, and I used all the foam dots included so I used some out of my stash. Even with 10 cards, I still have about half of the 8.5×11 cardstock left and 3 of the white notecards, about half of the precut dies and well over half of the paper pad. I’m not a fan of the epoxy stickers so I’m not sure I’ll use those. It’s not the quality of this kits’, I just don’t like them from any company.
I did alot of stamping on the background of this 12×12 layout using Catherine Pooler Inks in the colors Juniper Mist and Green Tea. I really love the varity of premade diecuts in this kit, they were beautiful and I used alot of the word strip stickers on this layout and my pocket pages too.
I love this card! It is a Z Fold card and was the first project I made from the kit!
This simple, beautiful card uses only patterned paper, a strip of the copper paper and a 3d sticker
This little card uses all but one of the house diecuts that was in the kit, I don’t need alot of housewarming or moving cards but I thought this would be a cute one for my stash!
Those flamingos made me laugh! My daughter also loved this card and took it to give to one of her friends that’s been having a rough time.
One of my favorite pictures of my Mama and Daddy!
I did some background stamping on this card using Catherine Pooler inks Eucalyptus, Green Tea and Daydream
One one the simplest cards I made but one of my favorites! I love that floral background paper.
My sweet stepson and his beautiful bride! The group photo is with her parents and sister (the maid of honor), my stepson’s mother and stepfather, me and my husband and his cousin who was the best man.
Lots of layering, dies and stickers on this gorgeous card!
I love all the blues in this pack!
