I am back for a few days to filming and blogging. As I mentioned before I enjoy these days with my family and friends and taking blogging really slowly. It is a much needed break that I take every year and makes a huge difference to my mojo and creativity!

But new products, releases and kits have been arriving home and I am making an effort this week to share some of these goodies with you!

Today I am showcasing the Small Die of the month July, by Spellbinders. This is a monthly kit and for just $12.50 you get lots of dies to play with. I know it’s called “small” but look how many dies you get to create two pets, their bones, the bowl, grass and two words. Plus all the little pieces such as ears, noses, tails, collars etc that give you the opportunity to use different colors to customize everything.

Here is the card I made using some of the dies from the kit. You can enjoy the video below or at my YouTube channel

It is a 3 window card and one of these windows is a shaker one! I used colored cardstock for all the die cut pieces and I made the cat based on my own cat, Ginger.

It is a clean and simple looking card but it takes some time to put together which makes it really special!

  1. Glad you are enjoying time away with your family, but I have missed your videos nice of you to take a few moments and do one for us

  2. I too hope you’re having a great summer at the beach with friends + your family and have also been missing you and your videos. Thanks for taking a break from paradise(!) to share with us. Adorable dies and project. How can you go wrong with a muse like Ginger?!!! Thank you, Vicky.

  3. Glad you’re back! Certainly hope your short break with your family was enjoyable. I know your crafting family will all be happy to see you posting more often again though.
    This is such a cute set! And I agree, there’s not much “small” about it! I think it’s definitely a win for your pocketbook when other companies are doing monthly kits that are far more expensive. Maybe that’s what Spellbinder’s means- “small” cost, “big” possibilities!
    Thank you for another wonderful post/video.
