Why Rosie's Book?

While growing up, I had a dear friend, Renee, that lived next door and with whom I spent much of my childhood. We grew, in different directions, and went on our merry way. Many years later, I ran into her parents and they kindly reminded me of the laughs they still have over my book. “What book?” I wondered with a puzzled look. "I don't remember a book." Hardy laughter accompanied their response. At some time during our childhood, I tried to convince Renee about something that her parents didn’t agree with. I told her that proof of its truth could be found “in my book.” Naturally she went home and tried to convince her parents of the same thing but they weren’t falling for it. She needed an edge and told them emphatically, “It’s in Rosie’s book!” After they caught their breaths from reborn laughter, they let me know how “Rosie’s book” has been cited for many other things throughout the years. They’ve also mentioned that they’d like to see “Rosie’s book” one day. I can’t remember all of the things that I said were in “my book” but I’m sure my dear friend’s parents can recall much more than I ever knew about – LOL!!! So, here it is . . . my version of things you might find In Rosie’s Book . . .

Simple Card Art with Die Cuts: Spellbinders Labels Three

I've continued working on a previous challenge presented to me to prepare cards showing use of Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Three dies.  I do love using these shaped dies for layering and matting with my rubberstamp and digi images.   There's so much that can be done with these 6 graduated dies!

I've used some of the neutral-toned patterned papers by Basic Gray with coordinating Bazzill cardstock colors.  I left the cards simple to allow the addition of more embellishments and sentiments later.

Take a look at the eight different but coordinated A2-sized cards I've made using the Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Three that we'll be putting together at my January Spellbinders Nestabilities - Let Us Count the Ways - Labels Three class at the Scrappers Cove in Milltown, NJ.

These cards emphasize embossing without cutting, adding layers and frames to side-open and tent cards and more.

I look forward to sharing my love for Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Three by showing just some of the ways this wonderful and versatile product can be used in papercrafting projects.

You can find examples of how I used the Spellbinders Labels One dies here and Labels Two dies here.

I'm so glad that you stopped by to visit!

Would love to know where to find the gold paisley paper shown at far left in second row of photos. I've searched Basic Gray online and cannot find it. It's gorgeous, as are your creations.

The Basic Grey patterned paper shown is from their "little black dress" collection. The pattern used in card 4 and 5 above is named "haute couture."
