Spellbinders 2014 Holiday Partner Blog Hop

November 19, 2014




Today is an exciting day.  It is our turn to participate in the Spellbinders 2014 Holiday Partner Blog Hop.  This is day 3 of the hop so if you are just joining us you may want to start here.  Our friends at Spellbinders have provided two of our Design Team members with dies and as you will see, they work so well with our inks, stamps and patterned paper!  Let's get to the projects shall we?  Be sure to go all the way to the bottom of this post to enter to win a giveaway from Spellbinders and one from us right here on our blog!

Heather Campbell created this first card using our Surf's Up stamp set and Spellbinders Distressed Edges Dies .  I love the natural look these dies create.  They are the perfect shape for this beachy card!  Be sure to check out Heather's blog for more details on all of these cards!


Heather used our More Stories stamp set and Spellbinder's Distressed Edges dies again to create this pretty winter card.  Heather shows the versatility of the dies - they can be used to create pretty snowbanks too!


 For Heather's final card she used our Fabulous Florals stamps and a panel from Spellbinder's Tile Works dies. I love how the flowers frame the unique shape!  It is so pretty!


JJ Bolton was sent two different Spellbinder's dies to create projects with.  She used our Be Jolly Stamp Set, The Everyday Collection patterned paper and Spellbinder's Diamond Effects dies in her first card.  I LOVE the way this die allows fun pops of color to show through.  It is so cute!  Be sure to check out JJ's blog for more information on all of her projects.



JJ used our Avery Alpha's dies to cut the word NOEL out of Spellbinder's Exquisite Labels 11 dies.   Isn't this a creative way to get even more use out of your dies?  This is jolly indeed!


Now for the fun part!  Spellbinders is hosting a giveaway to celebrate the festivities.   For the contest rules please click here.   To enter their contest, please click on this link .

As a bonus we are giving away a $25 Avery Elle Gift Certificate to one winner on our blog as well.  Just leave a comment on this post to enter to win before midnight EST on Sunday, November 23rd.  The winner of this drawing will be announced here on the Avery Elle Blog on Monday, November 24th.

 Thanks for stopping by to take a peek. Have a great day!
