Exciting News

Back in April I was asked by Spellbinders if I would like to demo their dies in Michaels and Hobby Lobby stores.  I was so very excited but then nervous at the same time, hoping I could do a good job, you see I haven't worked outside the home other than my volunteering I did while my daughter went through school and the work I do at my church, but I do love the product, so that is half of it right there, right :-)  Then with having to go back to Michigan for my Father in laws heart attack and then in May my mother in law passing it has been a slow road to get started but the time is fast approaching.  I have my first Demo at the Michaels store in Shiloh, Illinois on June 22nd.

I thought I would share some cards I am making to have for examples on the table.


This card uses the following Spellbinder dies:
Standard Circle
Labels Twenty two
Back to basics Tags

The stamps are from Michaels also, I colored the images with copic makers and cut the rope out, so I was able to use 3 stamps on one card as well as 3 dies.

 
This will be the card that I will let them make, so they can try them out for themselves, I tried to keep it simple and wanted to show off how you can sponge the ink around the sides to give it more depth and that it looks like you have more layers then you do.

Spellbinders dies:
A2 matting basics A
Labels Eighteen

Sorry so long in between postings but Vacation Bible School this week was very tiring and with still having to get housework done ect.  I was too tired to work on cards.

Hope your enjoying a great weekend, we are suppose to get showers tomorrow, so Fathers day will be a bit of a wash out, so we did our grilling out today!

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Connie

Congrats, Connie! How awesome to be representing Spellbinders!!! And the card you made as a demo is really pretty, and simple enough for anyone to make successfully. I love the ship image, too. You can't have too many masculine stamps.

That is exciting news! I can hardly think of a better job. You'll do great. Both cards are wonderful examples. Love the first, especially, with your placement of the rope knot.
