Spellbinders Shape It Up Sneak Peek and Giveaway Day 1



  
Hi Everyone, Welcome to the first day of our CHA Summer Sneak Peek!
I am the first stop on the hop and I am so excited to share Spellbinders
latest innovation in die design called-Nestabilities Enhancing Elements.

I have a really beautiful Brand New Die to share with you
called, Gold Squares One (S4-410).  

These unique die templates can be used on their own or mixed
with all of your existing dies to create
beautifully detailed inset designs that enhance without limits.
  They Cut, Emboss, Stencil, and Deboss too!

For my project today, I am sharing with you a special stationery gift set
that I created using the dies both on the front of the gift box and on the
beautiful cards made to put inside of it. And I am sharing the directions
on how to use the dies and how to put it together too.
So grab a cup of tea and lets get started!


First here is a list of things that you will need...

Spellbinders Dies:
      S4-410 Gold Squares One
      LF-018 Grand Decorative Labels One
      S4-380 Decorative Labels Twenty Seven
      S4-375 Scalloped Labels One
      S4-395 Les Papillions Two
      S5-145 French Frills
      GC-015 Junior Magnetic Mat
      GC-001 Grand Caliber® Die Cutting and Embossing Machine

Cross Promotional Partners:
Graphic 45 Secret Garden- Sunkissed, Beautiful Blooms
Bazzill Basics Paper® Ivory Cardstock
Scor-Pal®  1/4" Scor-tape and a Scor-Pal 
SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVE BY 3L™, E-Z Runner, 3D Foam dots
Want2Scrap(C) 72 count adhesive pearls in ivory

Other: Ribbon, scissors, papercutter, polka dot vellum

Instructions:

  1. To begin this project you are going to first cut a piece of the lavender printed cardstock 9 ½” x 12”.  Using a Scor pal score the paper on the 9 ½” side at 2” and 7 1/2”.  Turn the paper and score again at 5 and 7”.  Fold the lines in and then cut in on the 5 and 7” sides to the center.  Fold the box up and adhere the sides together with Scor-tape.
  2. For the lid you need to cut another piece of the lavender printed cardstock 5 ¼”x 10 1/2”.  Also cut a piece of the ivory cardstock 5 ½” x 11 inches and adhere the lavender on top of the ivory paper.  Scor  this piece on 5 1/2" and 71/2" too.  Fold on both lines.  Lay your lid on the top of your box to find placement and mark where 2 lines of scor-tape will go to the back to hold on the lid.  Undo the tape and carefully glue in place.  Mark with pencil 2 small dots for the Velcro in the front and add small white Velcro dots to hold the front in place.


3. For the front pieces cut and emboss #1 Grand Decorative Labels
one with the #6 and #7 square enhancing elements
using the magnetic mat on your grey base plate.
 Lay the paper on top and then the cutting mat and run
it through your Grand Caliber.  Replace the cutting plate with the
embossing mat and the pink embossing plate and run it through again.
Don't the enhancing dies just work just beautiful?
 But wait there is more....



  1. Now you can do the same thing with #3 Decorative Labels Twenty-Seven with the #1, 2 and #3 enhancing squares inside of it, this time on an angle as shown using ivory cardstock.

  1.  And lastly cut and emboss the #5 scalloped labels one with the #5 Enhancing element in the center with the purple printed cardstock.  Also cut and emboss 4 of the small corners from the French Frills die set in the same purple patterned cardstock. 


  1. To assemble the pieces for the front adhere the large ivory piece to the front of the box flap.  Adhere the top piece to the purple printed cardstock and then to the labels twenty seven piece.  Adhere this piece to the box with small foam dots to make it pop up more as shown in the photos below.  Adhere the decorative photo corners on with adhesive and add tiny pearls.  Cut and emboss a butterfly cutout and a base and glue them together.  Adhere this to the right side of the box and gently lift the wings and add tiny pearls.


  1. For the inside cards cut ivory cardstock to measure 5 ¼” x 5 ¼”.  Cut 4 for your box.  Cut and emboss the #1 Grand Decorative labels One in ivory for each one.  Cut and emboss the scalloped labels one in lavender cardstock for each one.  Cut and emboss the labels twenty seven in ivory for each one. And finally use the #3 scalloped label and cut and emboss the #1,2,3 and #5 dies in the front as shown at different angles.  To make the designs pop more cut a small label in lavender and adhere under the top piece.  Add tiny pearls on the corners and a pretty satin bow.  Emboss envelopes to match or create your own with vellum.  You can make all of them the same or have fun and mix up the dies to create fun an unique cards made especially by you!  It’s really fun and wait until you see the other amazing dies available soon… you are going to want them all!


So now that you know how they work I have another
simple project to share using the same
Square Enhancing Elements dies and a few of
my other Square Nestabilites dies to make a cute desk
calendar.  When you pair these elements with your existing dies
you can really create some one of a kind designs. 
 It’s really fun and easy to do.


I hope you loved these new dies and you are going
