Ep. 627 – Spellbinders Nestabilities Basics and Beyond

Scrap Time - Ep. 627 - Spellbinders Nestabilities Basics and Beyond

Today I am showing you a new book called Spellbinders Nestabilities Basics and Beyond. And the title really does sum it up! The first few pages talk about some basics, such as how to cut a decorative card using your nestabilities. I show you how to do this in the video. As well, another one of my favorites was using your dies to make tissue paper flowers!

From there it moves into projects for all the seasons and events in a year! From Baby projects to Wedding, Mother’s Day and Christmas, plus the everyday! They show you how to make boxes, mini albums, 3D items and cards!! They even supply a list of materials and step by step instructions, plus beautiful photos of the finished projects!

If you are a fan of Spellbinders, you will definitely want to pick up a copy of Spellbinders Nestabilities Basics and Beyond.

Good news!! I have a copy of Spellbinders Nestabilities Basics and Beyond to give away!! So check out the new Spellbinder dies, then leave a comment here on the Scrap Time Blog letting me know which are your favorite!!

The contest closes Sunday, May 1st at 10pm EST!! Be sure to check the blog on Monday to claim your prize. If you haven’t claimed it by Wednesday, May 11th a new winner will be chosen!!

Scrap Time – Ep. 627 – Spellbinders Nestabilities Basics and Beyond from Mark Giles on Vimeo.

I am headed out on vacation next week, so I am taking a couple weeks off Scrap Time! After being sick for so long I need to rest for a bit and enjoy some heat!! So take this time to review the 627 videos we have posted! There must be some worth watching again!!

Thanks for watching!!

    I don’t have any spellbinders dies but can see that they have a lot of possibilities. I especially like the fleur de lis squares and rectangles and the lattice rectangles (seems like all the ones that are out of stock are my faves!)

    I so appreciate your videos, it really helps me to decide whether it is something I should have or not. Thank you!

    WOW. I don’t think I can choose just one favorite- love the grand big scalloped ovals & grand big scalloped circles, the heart circles, and the lattice rectangles. Spellbinders are wonderful, and the book looks like it would be a great addition to my library- thanks for the chance.
    Hope you enjoy your well-deserved break- get some rest & have fun!

    I love the lacey ovals and beaded circles die. I have a few Spellbinders but since I bought my Silhouette cutting machine I dont use them as much. I love how the talented crafters can use these dies and layer them to make works of art.

I love the pendant dies, especially the snowflake pendants, but I use the fancy tags all the time. I would love to win the book. Anything Spellbinders!!!

    What a great give-away. I have soooo many Spellbinders dies that it would be difficult to pick out one I love best, but I would say that my basic circles are the dies that I MOST often use. For focal images, for sentiments and even embellishments…I reach for them most often.

    I just got a used Big Kick a couple of weeks ago, and haven’t had much of a chance to use it. One reason I got it was for Nestabilities. I really love the Spellbinders designs. I think my favourite of the new bunch is the Floral Doily Motifs.

    Thanks for the chance to win this new book. It looks like it has some great ideas and projects. Thanks for showing us how to make the card with the die. I need to give that a try, could make some wonderful shapes with this technique. I took a look at all those new dies, Oh MY! what a hard decision, but I think after hemming and hawing I’d have to say my favorite is the Fleur de Lis Doily Motifs die. So many wonderful ones!

Your current video gives me an idea! I have squares, scalloped circles and other spellbinder shapes. I wonder if they also might make interesting booklets, on theur own or to attach to a card , scrapbook page etc? I think I’ll try one tomorrow! Thank you Christine. Your priceless videos give flight to all our imaginations! Cheers!
