The International Ambassadors are Blog Hopping

Hello friends

  Some of the Spellbinders International Ambassadors are having an
informal blog hop and this time we have chosen some of the new dies
from Spellbinders licensed designers.
Here in the UK we are often lucky to be able to purchase new designs
before they are launched elsewhere.
If you tuned into Create and Craft end of last year you will
have seen the Becca Feeken border dies and frame maker.
This is what I used to create my project.

Graceful Floral Lace.
And the very clever Frame Maker to create perfect mitred corners.

and's festive - sorry cannot resist!
I'm either late or very early for Christmas 2017. 

I used ivory smooth cardstock for the card base and frame and
added a splash of colour with Blooms One.
To see how the Frame Maker works Becca has created a super video.

The border dies and Frame Maker are currently available from
Create and Craft.  Retailers will have these shortly.

 For more projects please hop along to my fellow
Ambassadors' blogs -  have fun!

To answer questions from yesterday's blog post,
Papermill card is available direct from their website or some
craft shops have a partnership agreement to sell,
that's what I used to have when I had my shop.
It cannot be sold online by partnership shops.

Sadly I'm not attending CHA, instead I've been busy putting together
lots of projects and I'm also back on telly very soon, 
more news on that shortly.  
Thank you for asking, so nice to read your comments.

Yesterday was a tad chilly in the cabin but warmed up nice and quickly.

Today I'm at home, I'm going to attempt housework and try not to get
distracted!  Cooking a roast dinner tonight, well it is Sunday.

Take care friends.
