Spellbinders Thank You Blog Hop

The Gina K Designs team would like to welcome to you this special Spellbinders Thank You Blog Hop!! Recently Spellbinders generously gifted each member of our Design Team with the amazing new Grand Calibur!!! What an exciting gift for sure and we are absolutely enjoying this fabulous machine!! We have made some special cards and projects to showcase the new Grand Calibur and why we are loving it so much!! Thank you so very much Spellbinders!!!

If you have arrived here from the amazing Carolyn King's Blog, then you are in the right spot!

I know I made a Recent Post about the Grand Calibur, but I just cant say it enough, I am so loving this machine! I still dont have any grand nestabilities yet, but I LOVE how you can place so many different dies on the cutting plate and it will cut them out allll at once! We were to do a Spring Theme also for our cards...and when I think of Spring I think gorgeous blue skies and all the birds coming out.... Here is my creation with it for this hop:



I placed every thing I was gonna cut out with my nesties on it at once:



Well, the green felt was actually used on another project! And did I mention how awesome this is for cutting some of the intricate details is some of the dies? With the Cuttlebug, I always had to run it through SEVERAL times...this machine does it on the first roll through, LOVE it!

Ok, you next stop is the awesomely talented
