Spellbinders - Quick & Easy Pages - Take 5

First of all I'd like to say a big thank you to Spellbinders for making me a 'Spellbinders International Blog Ambassador', I am proud to be part of such a great team.

Today I'd like to show you how to make quick and easy pages using the following ingredients:

Spellbinders Dies:
1) Banner Basics Two (I am using the bracket shaped die in this set with the holes)
2)Classic Rectangles Large (The third die down)

Other Items:
Grunge Paper
250gsm Cardstock
1/4 Scor-Pal Sookwang adhesive tape

Cut 10 pieces out of Grunge Paper using Spellbinders Banner Basics Two

Apply adhesive tape to the straight edges on the rough side

Cut 5 pieces from 250gsm cardstock using Spellbinders Classic Rectangles Large

Fix your die-cut rectangles up to the taped edge of your banner pieces on both sides. You should be able to see through the perforations.

You have now created pages that you can decorate as you wish and you don't have to stop there! Make as many pages as you need for your project. When your project is finished sew the pages together with twine, use book rings, chain, or even screw posts.

Below are three examples of what I have created with 5 Spellbinders, quick and easy pages.

Art Journal created entirely from Spellbinders dies. I used Arched windows One, Blossom five and Spellbinders foliage dies. The whole journal was painted on a Gelli Arts - Gel plate and sewn together with twine.

Graphic 45 French Country recipe journal using Spellbinders Address Book Die and tied together with a lace

Photo Album using Spellbinders Industrial Embossing Folder, Ranger Foil and Alcohol Ink. Held together with ball chain. The inside pages are blank for photos

I hope you have fun creating quick and easy pages using Spellbinders Dies and thank you for stopping by.
