Introducing Amazing Paper Grace - A Charming Christmas | Blog Hop



Tis the season to be jolly!  Even though it is only August, Christmas will be here in the blink of an eye.  I'm sure you are already listing out all the cards and gifts you're gonna make, right?  This year Becca of Amazing Paper Grace has designed a Christmas Collection - A Charming Christmas - for Spellbinders and we have a hop today to show you all the goodies and things we've made.  You can see the entire collection -----> HERE.

About A Charming Christmas Collection
Sweet little charms are so fun to play with, they can be dangled off of gifts, dangled off of cards and used in 3D Projects - they are just like the icing on the cake.  You will see that the "holiday" part of most of the sets in this collection have a Charm to personalize them - they are sized the same so you can mix and match them through your projects!  Here's the big deal: Outside of the charms and embellishments you add to make these dies Christmas, separately they can be used all year-round!! Yep, we're all budget shoppers too and want to get the most use out of a die!

Join us as each Creative Team member shares their creations with two dies from the collection.  Don't forget, each of us will be giving away an Amazing Paper Grace die pulled from the comments - one from each blog. The prize details are at the bottom of my post.  So, without further ado let me talk about the dies I get to introduce:

My Projects Today:





First up is Cinch and Go Poinsettia  



I get so excited when new flower dies come out, as they are my favourite thing to work with. These poinsettia dies come as a set of 4 different sizes. In the close up photo, notice the embossed details. I added extra shape and body by applying a stylus to the back, and then layering them two at a time. 





Second up is Charming Tag Pocket 



This is an interesting set. There are 7 different pieces which gives you a multitude of combinations and options, which is always a great idea in a die set. 

Availability:
These dies are available right now on the Spellbinders website -----> HERE

Prizes:
In the meantime, be sure you leave a comment on this post and every Creative Team Members post for a chance to win an Amazing Paper Grace Die from any previous collection (A Charming Christmas not included).

There are six dies that are being given away.  One name will be randomly picked from comments left on each of our six blogs on the Introducing Amazing Paper Grace - A Charming Christmas Collection post between August 15 and August 19, 2018, at midnight US Central Time.  We encourage all of our international friends to participate!  The randomly selected names will be announced on the Amazing Paper Grace Blog on August 20th.  (All giveaways for this hop are managed by and the responsibility of Amazing Paper Grace).

Up for grabs is an Amazing Paper Grace die of your choice from the Vintage Elegance Collection, the Graceful Borders Collection, the Venise Lace Collection, the Chantilly Lace Collection, the 3d Vignettes Collection or the Romancing the Swirl Collection.  

There will be a total of six dies and a winner can win once among all six blogs.  If your name is selected, simply claim it within 2 weeks of the announcement by sending your address through the form under the Contact Tab on the Amazing Paper Grace Blog.  There won't be a reply back but if you leave your choice, we'll get it, I promise.  Next thing you know, the die will show up at your door.   The dies will be mailed out from Amazing Paper Grace.
