A Huge Thank you blog hop in honor of Spellbinders Paper Arts




Lat year, we were we given the honor of becoming a Spellbinders Preferred Stamp Partner Company and, as you know, we have many stamp sets that coordinate with their FABULOUS dies.

Spellbinders makes the best dies on the market but they also make a fabulous new die cutting machine called the Grand Calibur!


Well Stacy and Jeff Caron along with the rest of their wonderful staff at Spellbinders sent everyone on my design team a brand new Grand Calibur! This machine totally ROCKS!

Not only can you cut out multiple smaller die shapes at one time, but it's the only machine that will fit their new Grand dies which are a must have for so many scrapbooking and home decor projects as well and some pretty cool 3-D projects which will be featuring on StampTV in the coming months.

So today, as a small way of saying thank you to the generous folks at Spellbinders Paper Arts, we are honoring them with a blog hop.

Here are some of my favorite projects I created with Spellbinders dies.














So thank you Spellbinders for such wonderful dies and this amazing die cutting machine! You have totally changed the way I stamp and scrapbook!
Enjoy our thank you blog hop featuring fabulous projects using Spellbinders Paper Arts dies!

  2. I too love Spellbinders. The sad thing is, my Cricut just sits there and watches me use my Spellbinders. Shhh..don't tell the hubby!

    ReplyDelete
  3. Love that card you created Gina--just beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  4. You never cease to amaze me with your wonderful talent. When I grow up, I want to be just like you. I can hardly wait until my scrappy nest egg is able to support some more spellbinder dies...thanks for all that you do

  5. Oh I am in LOVE with my spellbinders too- if I had known about them before I bought my cricut- I'd not have the machine sitting gathering dust and I'd have every spellbinder out there-hahaha (working on that one anyway along with getting the Grand Caliber! anyone want to buy a cricut machine??? :-))
    Gina you and your design teams use of the spellbinders are just wonderful and always a fantastic inspiration

    ReplyDelete
  6. Spellbinders products are so great that a few months ago I actually took time to send an e-mail to them telling them how much I love their products!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Hopefully I'll get one for Mother's Day. I love the Cuttlebug and Spellbinders so much and this should be even better.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I am slowly working on my spellbinders inventory. I too have. A cricut and for most of the times it sits there collecting dust LOL. I have a big shot too and I really love it better than my cricut but I don't have dies, I use it only with my spellbinders. I asked my hubby to give me a better Cricut for my birthday but I think I will change my wish and ask for the spellbinders' inventory instead LOL

    Thanks for all the amazing job and inspiration you and yor design team offer us every week. My 5 year old daughter loves to watch StampTV episodes and even makes her own cards trying to copy some GinaK designs.

  22. What a great way to spend a slow Sunday afternoon by following your blog hop! I have the purple Wizard and am trying to convince myself that I don't "need" the Grand Calibur -- it's not working though.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Wow, you sure make lovely cards! I am one of the few who still does not have a die cutter, never sure which one to get, and will certainly be looking at this one! There are so many beautiful shapes to the spellbinders, I drool over all the beautiful projects created by them!

    I just received my 20th GKD stamp set and a set of Copic markers...can't wait to make Easter cards! I recently purchased the Grand Calibur, am now saving my money for the Grand Dies.
    I still use Cuddlebug and Cricut, it depends on the project and size. As you may guess, I'm a true gadget nerd!

  58. Hi Gina,
    I have learned so many techniques by watching your videos and am anxious to see how you will be using the Grand Calibur. I noted that the Grand Calibur has "non see through" plates that won't allow you to see how the die is sitting on your image. I am hoping that you will have some tutorials on the new machine.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Love your cards, very pretty.
