12 Designers, 12 Spellbinder creations and 5 Winners

Hi Everyone,
I have been having internet problems this weekend - and I am so glad that it is finally up and working (although it was nice to drive to the coffeeshop and use the WiFi and have a latte). As much as I love technology, I also can't believe how dependent I have become on it - which becomes very apparent when it doesn't work! Ack! But, I am thankful that its back and today there is some exciting things going on! Today the Supernovas over at PaperCraft Planet are having a blog hop for one of our favorite products: Spellbinders!!! yipee!! We are showing off the new summer dies (yay! bring on the summer weather!) and hop along with us and you could end up winning one of the new sets!!!

I got to play with the super cute dies: Fresh Fruit Borderabilities Petite and I love these super cute little fruit (apple borders and strawberries) too cute. I made two cards - one using the apple die as a border and one using the apples as little cut outs. This first card uses Mercy's Sketch#66 and uses the apples as cut out and the sentiment You're So Sweet is from the Thankful Accents stamp set from Verve:

The second card uses the die as a border - I put little sheets of patterned paper behind the apples and printed out the sentiment: "You are the apple of my eye" :) I love these little apples all in a row:

We have hidden FIVE prizes among the Supernova blogs, but no one knows which one! So go ahead leave a comment for a chance to win! Blog comments will close on Wednesday at 6pm EST.

Sankari Wegman (that's me :)))

Check out the gallery of all of our projects here over at PaperCraft Planet! And check out all of the new labels and dies over at Spellbinders! I always drool looking at all of the yummy dies :-)
Thanks so much for stopping by !!
Big hugs!
Sankari :)
