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 Four

Several months ago, the lovely owners of the Scrappers Cove in Milltown, NJ, challenged me to create cards and/or projects showing use of Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels dies.  These shaped dies are wonderful for layering and matting with my rubberstamp and digi images.   There's so much that can be done with these graduated, various shaped dies!

I've used some of the fabulous and sparkly Bo Bunny Snowfall patterned papers with coordinating Bazzill cardstock colors.  The glitter papers are so beautiful, there is no need for extravagant embellishments.  Students can add their own sentiments later.

Take a look at the several A2-sized cards I've recently made using the Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Four that we'll be putting together at my February Spellbinders Nestabilities - Let Us Count the Ways - Labels Four 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.  Spellbinders Labels Four has this fabulous oval element to it that can be enhanced with die cut ovals.

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

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