Spellbinders Springtime Shipping Frenzy - Day Two


Well how seriously exciting is this!  Today I am so honoured to be part of Spellbinders® Springtime Shipping Frenzy celebration sharing with you today's projects along with Linda Lucas.  I created two projects with the the new Butterflies Expandable pattern and Flutters die set.

Butterflies signify new life and it is perfect for the Spring time of year.  I therefore wanted to keep the colors light and fresh.  I also wanted to incorporate a butterfly pattern into the background as a texture element and the expandable pattern was perfect for this.  I knew I had the perfect picture (thanks to a dear friend that supplies with me many pics of her little girls to feed my addiction lol) for this mixed media scrapbook page, and so set about creating.  Here it is:


To create this scrapbook page, begin by cutting and embossing the following dies with the Spellbinders® Grand Calibur® Machine as detailed below.
  1. Cut/emboss the Butterflies Expandable pattern out of "flamingo" cardstock so that you have one pink butterfly you can cut out of the pattern
  2. Cut/emboss the Butterflies Expandable pattern out of Kaisercraft "coconut" cardstock, expanding the pattern two more times so that you have a piece that is 12 inches long approximately.  Cut out one of the butterflies so that you have one individual butterfly aside from the larger piece.
  3. Cut/emboss the ornate butterfly from the flutters die set twice so that you have one pink and one white butterfly using the new Spellinders® Tool'n One to aid removing it from the die, firstly with the brush and then the poking tool stored inside for those stubborn little bits that remain.
  1. Cut/emboss two of the Gold Majesty Circles dies #5 & #6 (with #1 being the smallest) nested together from the cream grid pattern paper and cut them in half as shown.
  2. Nest together #5 & #6 dies from the 5 x 7 Matting Basics A and cut/emboss the "flamingo" cardstock.
  3. Cut/emboss a large size Bitty Blossom die from the pink pattern paper.  If you are unsure how to create a flower from the die, feel free to check out my blog post here which has a video showing how I create them.  
  4. Tear a 6 x 6 inch piece of green grid pattern paper, as well as a banner piece and color with some Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® Gelatos® in "metallic mint" diluted in a little water.
  5. Color your chipboard word with the Tsukineko® Dew Drop Ink pad in "Pixie Dust" and add Tinby Metallic melts in "Pink Sorbet".  Then apply some of the "Pixie dust" ink pad over the top.
Now that these elements are prepared, watch my video for the rest of the steps showing you how to incorporate them in this mixed media scrapbook page.


Here are some close-up pictures of the finished page:

A little more inspiration...
I have continued on with a theme of 'little girls' and created this cute fairy wand for all the little fairy want to be little girls out there with the Flutters die set.




  • Take a BBQ skewer and add some different color ribbons running it up one side and down the other, taped to the top only.  Finish off the ends of the ribbon with some Kaisercraft rhinestones in silver, pink and purple
  • Cut/emboss two pink solid flutter butterflies, and adhere this either side of the stick covering the tape with butterfly die cuts matching them up.
  • Layer one white and one purple glitter ornate butterfly, adhering them only on the center of the butterflies, and fan the wings out a little.
  • Finish off the butterfly with some Kaisercraft pink rhinestones.  
  • I used some of the Art Institute Glitter, Inc. in lavender with the supplied adhesive to finish off the bottom of the wand.
