I decided to continue my card making journey by adding these beautiful note cards to my design team projects.
What I really enjoyed about this collection is the versatility that you get with each and every set of dies. Not only do you get gorgeous full-size card making dies, but the embellishment dies that accompany these can be used for a number of paper crafting projects. In this case note cards!
Prima Tales of You and Me Mini Album: It’s been several weeks since I posted this Paper Bag Mini Album on my Youtube, and I had completely forgotten to upload the pictures to my blog. So here it is!
If you’ve been a long time subscriber of mine, you know how much I love making paper bag mini albums. For this particular mini album, I decided to go with the Prima Tales of You and Me collection by Frank Garcia. I’ve been a long time fan and supporter of Frank Garcia. I just love his designs and method of teaching. Every paper collection that he comes up with is exceptionally beautiful! The designs are timeless, romantic and very shabby chic!
I like to make the covers to my paper bag mini albums out of chipboard. I find that making chipboard covers for these type of mini albums help preserve the papers within.
When making a paper bag mini album, try not to go for the cheap bags. These will easily tear and all your hard work will be destroyed. I like to get my paper bags from Michael’s party good section. They come in several colors and sizes and I have yet to have a complaint about these bags.
I used trims and laces from my stash; and much of the embellishments I made using dies from Spellbinders.
Since this mini album was a part of a wedding gift I used scraps from my Tales of You and Me project, and made a money card and envelope. I also used my dies from Spellbinders to embellish the card.

In this video you’ll see all the pages inside this gorgeous paper bag mini album. Enjoy!
The set of dies that I’m using from the collection is called Anabelle’s Trousseau Layering Frame. As you can see on the picture above, I decided to use the corner die-cuts on a vertical position for the Feisty and Fabulous stamped card; and I used the corner die-cuts on a horizontal position on the other.
Notice how the Spellbinders Anabelle’s Trousseau set of dies lend themselves to that perfect marriage of card-stock and satin trim? I’ve always loved how Becca Feeken adds that extra layer of elegance with her satin ribbons; and with this set of dies she’s ensured that we can do the same.
There’s no doubt about it! With dies from Spellbinders, you too can craft like a pro!
I LOVE Valentine’s Day! And I certainly LOVE crafting for Valentine’s Day! What I really enjoy about this special day is all the handmade projects that I get to see throughout the web. They’re full of inspiration and ideas; and my hope is to become your inspiration and give you some ideas as well.
I knew I wanted to make a special Valentine’s Day Card for my husband. I wanted to make it ME. I wanted my card to come from the heart. Something that said this is how I feel about YOU. So a store-bought card was not even a consideration.
I don’t know about you, but quite often when I’m crafting I play music that inspires me in my projects. And this is what I had playing in the background:
So I took the prompt from Mr. Nat King Cole and ran with it!
If you think about it …. what is the most precious thing that you can give to that special someone? It is pure and unconditional Love! And thanks to my dies from Spellbinders, I can put all of my love into that one special project.

Elegant Card Idea Using the Spellbinders Chantilly Paper Lace Collection
An Elegant Card Idea using the Spellbinders Bella Rose Lattice Layering Frame S6-129 from the Chantilly Paper Lace collection by Amazing Paper Grace, Becca Feken. In this tutorial I show you how you can make beautiful, elegant handmade cards using dies from Spellbinders.
For this beautiful and elegant handmade card I decided to use scraps from past projects and some items from my stash. What I love about card making is that you don’t necessarily have to go out and buy new designer paper pads to make your cards. Just look around your paper stash, and I’m sure that you’ll find something that you can use.
The scraps that I’m using for this card come from a Paper Bag Mini Album project I did several months ago. I received a lot of positive feedback from this mini album tutorial; and I highly recommend you view the tutorial. In it you’ll see more uses to your dies from Spellbinders.
Flower Embellishments for your Card Making Projects
I’m one of those crafters who insists on using items she already owns (when she can remember where she put them) LOL. But seriously it makes no sense to me to go out and spend money on packaged flowers, when I have my flower dies from Spellbinders. They make stunning flower embellishments that rival any pre-packaged expensive paper flowers.
I also added a lace trim around the center plus a few flat-back pearls to accentuate the corners. This is one of those projects where you let the beautiful intricate die-cuts and designer papers do the work for you.
I’ve put together a quick and easy tutorial/process video of this gorgeous handmade card. I hope you enjoy the process. If you have any questions or comments, use the comment section below. I’d love to hear from you. Enjoy!
