Final Day: For the Love of Scrapbooking

Well our For the Love of Scrapbooking Sale has come to an end. On this last day I'd like to tell you about one of the newer products that we've started carrying at the store....Spellbinders. Spellbinders are a metal die cut that cuts shapes out of paper. What is a little different about Spellbinders die is that many of the dies also offer an embossing feature that can be used after you've cut out your shape.

You can also use the die as a stencil and add colour and ink to your shape once it has been cut out. These additional options make the Spellbinders a very unique die cutting system. Whether you use the shapes in your layouts or on your cards, Spellbinders are a great tool to use in your craft making.

Spellbinders also offer embossing plates very similar to the Cuttlebug Embossing Folders. One feature that I like about the Spellbinders embossing plates is that if you ink them before you emboss them, you end up with a letterpress effect. The ink transfers to your paper and the die debosses at the same time. It's a pretty neat technique that will have everyone wondering how you did it.

So for this last day of our sale, you can pick up any Spellbinders die in the store for 20% off regular price. I hope you've enjoyed our For the Love of Scrapbooking posts about some of our favourite products to use in our scrapbooking and card making.
