Time for the September 2021 Spellbinders Small Die of the month! This month brings “Layered Mix & Match Sentiments”and I have 4 clean and simple cards to share.

A super simple Happy birthday. Add your sentiment to any background paper!

This one is for my daughters 19th birthday this week. I use a few of her favorite colors.

Next is a copic colored background that has been sitting on my stamp table forever. These sentiments are perfect!

And now to get in the mood for fall.

Like the other Spellbinders clubs, the small die is a subscription-style club. You can add on other clubs and so much more: Details of how it works HERE

Add to Cart Collection by Becky Roberts & Spellbinders

Have you seen this new Add to Cart collection by my friend Becky Roberts and Spellbinders? Becky is my crafty friend that goes back many, many years…like back to Stampin Up days, Founders circles, many incentive trips and even my short stint with FSJ. We even started our affiliate marketing journey together too!

When you have a crafty friend that’s designing stamps and dies with one of your favorite companies you are happy to play and support her!!!

Here is my first card using the Shopping Bags Dies from the collection. Any themed bag is possible!!

The bag on this card is 3-d. I added tissue paper but you can put other items in there too. you can also make the bag flat but when it is 3-d it’s not flat for mailing. Thant means you need to hand deliver this beauty!

Next up is 3-D Shopping cart. Of course I could have filled it with the shopping bags and accessories dies in the collection but instead this happened:

The shopping cart on my card is flat, but you can also make it 3-d and put even more cute stuff in there!

And then this card happened:

How fun is the Gnome riding in the shopping cart? I LOVE him in the cart!

Here is a great video from Becky that shows al the fun stuff in the Add to Cart Collection:

And here is how to put the 3-d cart together:

Silent Night Make a Scene

Are you ready for another FABULOUS release from Spellbinders? Here is the Silent Night Make a Scene Etched Dies from the Holiday Medley Collection by Becca Feeken.

I have 2 Christmas cards to share with you today.

I adore the little houses. The are so fun to create with! While the Silent Night Make a Scene set is designed to work with the Make a Scene set to create interactive slider window cards, I created these as standard A2 cards. If you like sliders don’t forget to add the base to your order.
