Spellbinders Holiday Blog Hop

Welcome to the first day of the Spellbinders™ Paper Arts Holiday Hoppin’ Blog Hop!  Spellbinders, along with Creative Impressions are showcasing their newest products just in time for your Holiday crafting and gift giving.  Lots of creative ideas are in store, as well as prizes galore!  Each participating company has generously donated towards the prize package listed on the Spellbinders Blog.  A total of two identical prize packages, one for each day, November 18 and 19 will be given away!  To enter, just leave a comment on a participating blog!  Comments in the first 48 hours of the post are eligible.  One commenter each day will be randomly selected as the winner.  Winners will be announced on November 22, on the Spellbinders Blog!
Today I am using Spellbinders S4-289 Wonky Squares die template and Creative Impressions products.  I have made a christmas banner and on each triangle I have used the Wonky Square Dies.  See if you can identify them. 

 My favorite is the flower I have made with it.  I Also used Creative Impressions fabulous ribbon including Crepe Ribbon, Organdy Dots, Curling Grid ribbon, Stitched ribbon, Mini Checked and Swirl Organdy.  I combined Spellbinders Snowflake die with Creative impressions Felt Snowflakes and love the dimension it creates.  The felt leaves and flowers are also Creative Impressions.  Do you see the Flower the cardinals are resting on?  Its made from the Autumn felt leaves that Creative Impressions sells.  I used Glimmer Brads to hold the snowflakes and the flowers together.  I love using Spellbinder Dies on my projects.  This was very fun and easy to create!

  1. Oh my!! Normally I like fewer layers, but I am in LOVE with you banner. You have absolutely inspired me to make a banner with our boys today. They truly enjoy crafting with me and this is the perfect mix of parts they can do on their own, with me and then little bits that I will do!

    The rest of your blog rocks, too. 😉

  2. Your banner is FABULOUS!!! I love the gorgeous flowers you made out of strips and the gorgeous layers of embellishments! I'm so going to make one like this. Thank you so much for the inspiration.
