12 Designers, 12 Amazing Projects, 5 Winners!


The Paper Craft Planet Supernovas are crazy for Spellbinders and we're having a blog hop to show off the new summer dies! Hop along with us and leave us some love and you could end up winning one of the new sets! We've hidden FIVE prizes among the Supernova's blogs, but no one knows which ones! Leave a comment on one or all of the Supernova blogs in order to win. The more you comment, the better your chances of winning. Blog comments will be open until Wednesday at 6:00 pm EST. The lucky winners will be announced on the Paper Craft Planet blog on Wednesday night.
Our Blog Hoppers are:
For my project, I received the Nested Pears set, and decided to make a recipe holder for a friend. I made this recipe called Amaretto Crisp to take to a friends house one evening, and she loved it and has constantly asked me for the recipe. So when I received these pear dies, I thought it'd be fun to come up with a cute way to give her the recipe instead of just emailing her a link.

I cut two pears out with lightweight chipboard, then covered them with Certainly Celery cardstock, and paper from the Nook & Pantry 6x6 pad from Basic Grey. Some accessories, also cut out with Nestabilities and a sentiment from Impression Obsession completes the front of my little card.


There is a large brad at the top, covered by the button bow that allows the card to open on a swivel and reveal the recipe inside! I used an old bank ledger book that I picked up awhile back when my bank was cleaning out their storage to write the recipe on.
Each page is sponged with Tea Dye distress ink. I also used the medium pear-shaped die to cut a template out of another lightweight chipboard coaster and used it as a stencil to sponge a Certainly Celery pear in the center of each recipe page.


So remember, somewhere out there five of the Supernova's will have Spellbinders prizes on their blogs! If you want a chance to win, you'll need to comment on all of them to increase your odds! (Unfortunately, this contest is only open to U.S. residents as International shipping is not available.)

Thanks for stopping by, and good luck!
