Cottage gardens and crafting dies

Last June I visited England's cottage gardens. It was like falling into a storybook! Those gardens and my own little patch of green inspired a collection of flower garden crafting dies from Spellbinders Paper Arts. They'll be in stores soon and today I can finally share a little peek at a few of the products and a project you can make yourself.

Like almost all my cut paper, these crafting dies are very intricately detailed. They let you turn a crank and produce something that took me a lot longer to cut!

There's going to be a wedding in the family and the planning is underway. We've begun with a Save the Date card but you could make one for a baby announcement or birthday card, or as a special frame. For a full tutorial you can go to the Spellbinders blog here.

This group of creative crafting dies is full of flowers and other joys we find in our gardens: butterflies, birds, berries, dragonflies... 

I'll be sharing more peeks very soon. You can find these dies beginning in March at the Spellbinders website or at a store near you. If you have a favorite local store, just ask if they'll be carrying the Flower Garden collection this spring and summer.

More peeks soon... 

For now we're saving the date for a special wedding here and planning invitations, party goods and favors made from this group of easy to use crafting dies.

(And don't tell anyone but they make those handmade party goods fast as can be even though it looks like we spent hours!)
