I can't tell you how excited I was to receive an email from Spellbinders saying that I won their grand prize from their Winter Release To Die For Blog Frenzy! I really drooled on my computer every day of previews - there was not a single day that I wasn't crazy over - and just look at what I won! Thank you so much Spellbinders for your generosity!

Gini’s prize includes the following, worth over $800!!
• All new die templates revealed during the Spellbinders Paper Arts To DIE For!! Blog Frenzy!!
• A Grand Calibur™ die cutting machine!!
• The balance of the new release die templates being revealed at the 2011 Winter Craft and Hobby Show on January 29, 2011!

I thought I would share a project that I made using Spellbinders/and Heartfelt Creations Dies (which are manufactured by Spellbinders). I've had this shabby and vintage child's dress form for years, and decided that she should be dressed with a Kraft Paper Apron. The flower, the polka-dots, the lace trim and the sash were all made using these dies. And even the center of my dots were embossed with Spellbinders Impressabilities. I can't wait to get my new dies and see what fun projects I can come up with! Thank you again Spellbinders!
