Giveaway!

Hello friends

Having a wonderful time in Devon...
 I feel like sharing my happiness and what better way than having a giveaway today!

How about Spellbinders Little Leaf Set ...
So often I hear that the foliage dies are the most used and this set is very handy indeed.
To be in with a chance of owning these just leave a comment and tell me what Spellbinders
die you use the most.  Once home Elliott will pick out a winner.

Talking of Elliott - he's enjoying himself immensely, we've visited otters, butterflies,
been hat shopping....
bowling... (I'm not so good at that - definitely sticking to craft!)
Photos appear on Facebook regularly so apologies if you are seeing these again!
Mitchell is having fun too but doesn't always pose for photos!
Managed to catch him here though!
Did I mention it is a little bit 'hilly' in Torquay!?
We are staying behind those houses on the hill....
we will return home fit or ...fit to drop!
The apartment is on a very aptly named road...
To answer some questions from yesterday - I do have The Tool n' One in stock - 
just two left!  The details are here.  More on their way.
The flower used on yesterday's tag is Bauble Blossoms.

Have a great day friends and don't forget to leave a comment for the giveaway.
Back tomorrow.

Nestabilities- Decorative labels One is the die I use the most as it's so pretty and great for matts and layers, also have it in Grand size, it's my favourite die too.
Looks like you are all having a great time. x

Liz Thomson said...

Nice to see you are all enjoying your break in lovely Torquay. My favourite Spellbinders die would have to be blooms one and two as these dies are in constant use .


Patricia Youdell said...

Good Morning - good to see/hear you are all having a good time in Torquay
My most used die is Les Papillions - I've lost count of the number of times I have used them, closely followed by borderabilities 2
I believe the weather is warming up from today (my birthday) so make the most of it everyone

So pleased to see that you are all having a great time away. You certainly have plenty of things to entertain you all. I love the name of the road.
My favourite Spellbinders dies are the labels which I use constantly. No particular one really, as I like them all!
Thank you for the chance of winning these lovely leaf dies.

Morning Christine, I don't write often but do read everyday. I'm with Clai01 -Decorative Labels. I always end up fitting them in somewhere but I do try to make a point of trying to use at least one of my stash that I haven't used before.

PharmacyMichele said...

My most used die is Grand Squares as I don't seem to be able to cut out a square without them, they never look straight! Love the photos.

Michele.

Jackie said...

My current favourite is Nestabilities - Radiant Rectangles. The combination of rectangle and inset oval is stunning, and makes my project look really special.

Carole Z said...

Hi Christine, so pleased you are having a fab week! Hmm...which dies do I use most? That's a toughie...I use labels a lot, but no particular one: I love all the butterfly dies, especially 'Les Papillons" and recently Blooms One has become a favourite flower! Hugs Carole Z X

Jane Willis said...

Glad you are having such a good holiday, you all deserve it! My most used Spellbinders are the good old workhorse Nestabilities circles - I've totally lots the ability to cut a circle by hand, as I no longer get any practise!

My very first childhood holiday was to Torquay, just after my 4th birthday. It's over half a century ago, so the memory is a bit blurred, but we stayed in a big house up a steep hill from the town and from what I can remember it looked remarkably like where you are staying! My favourite outing on that holiday was to a cave called Kent's Cavern - is it still there? My other vivid memory of the trip is of experiencing my first ever knickerbocker glory!

Oksana said...

Hi Christine, sounds like you are all having a wonderful time and the weather looks great too! I use my circle dies the most, both sets, so useful!xxx

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Christine, Fabulous piccies today, everyone enjoying themselves, and getting fit too, can't be bad haha.
I use flowers and foliage on every card (except men cards), and my favourite at the moment is the posy patch dies and also the poinsettia dies are my most favourite - ever !!
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Jean Z said...

Hi Christine , so glad you are all enjoying your Hols love the pictures, The leaf dies look lovely so useful. love Jean Z xxx

Chris said...

Hi Christine, love seeing your holiday photo's, who won at bowling,Elliott or Mitchell, I take it they weren't gentle with you as you are sticking to craft. My most used Spellbinders are probably the bitty blossoms, but the decorative ovals are a close second and the pretty tree that I can't remember the name of. Enjoy your day.
Chris xx

Mrs B said...

Hi Christine. Good to see and hear that you are all having fun, and the weather is looking good for the rest of the week too : )Yes, Torquay is hilly isn't it! The backs of your legs let you know it, don't they!
Like Patricia Howarth, the Poinsettia dies (the various dies in the set are so useful for such a lot of different things)are probably my most used along with Labels 25.
Have a good day. Take care.

nattyboots said...

Morning Christine,
Great photos, the boys look like they are having fun. the hat really suits Elliot.
Most used die, that's hard, I seem to flit about a bit, at the moment it's any flower mainly the delicate aster and also the sprigs, also the mattering and layering dies.
Thank for the chance to win the foliage dies I don't have this set.
Enjoy your day.
Lydia

Linda said...

Hi Christine
Glad that you and the boys are having such a good time. You don't mention Devon cream teas, how are you managing to resist, when I was in Devon I put on pounds!
My favourite dies, that depends on the season. If it's Christmas card making time it has to be poinsettia, I can't seen to make a card without it.
The rest of the year I go back alli the time to labels 4 in all its guises, the gold and decorative dies really do make for pretty layers on cards.
Love and hugs
Linda

Lucycat said...

Hi Christine,

I hope you have the sun,we do at the moment .
Take care. x.

Jackie said...

Good Morning
So glad you are all having a wonderful time.
My favourite spellbinders die would be the foliage die you used yesterday on the tag. Although I have to say I haven't inked through it ...... yet! x

Ella's Design said...

Looks like you're having a wonderful time in Torquay...and deservedly so!
My most used die would probably be Floral Ovals as I just love tyhe ornatenes of them and they're perfect for framing an image or topper! Thanks for the chance to win these FAB foliage dies...fingers crossed! Hugs, Lisa x

val jones said...

Hi Christine. So glad you and the boys are having such a fun time.
My favourite Spellbinders which I probably use every day are the basic circles and ovals. Don´t know what I'd do without them as they seem to form the base of most designs.
Love Val in Spain x

Valerie said...

Hi Christine, so glad you are all enjoying your holiday. You will all be so fit by the time you get home. My favourite Spellbinder dies are the tags, all of them so useful, or could it be Bitty Blossoms!! Oh decisions, decisions, decisions!! On reflection, Bitty Blossoms win. Hope the sun keeps shining. Valerie

Cornish Emma said...

Morning Christine, looks like your having a wonderful time, beautiful photo of the otters kissing. My most used set of spellbinders are bitty blossoms closely followed by the poinsettia set, if it stands still it gets a blossom stuck on it! lol. Enjoy your day. Hugs Emma x

Elaine said...

Hi Christine & boys looks like you are having such a great time, which of course you deserve immensley. Enjoy the rest of the week. Now spellbinders I use the most would be at the moment the venetian accents & motifs I got from yourself , I also find myself using the fall foilage quite a lot. Have fun x

Good morning & happy holidays. My favourite dies must be any of the 'make a flower' ones. They are my thing at the moment. Enjoy the rest of your holiday and I will no doubt see you soon at the shop

Lacelady said...

Oh, Christine, it's lovely to read that you are all enjoying yourselves and having a good time. I think I use Bitty Blossoms most, though they all get a good workout. Of course, those leafy dies would compliment my blossoms beautifully. Please tell Elliott he looks great in his new hat.

Maggie said...

Hello Christine. How lovely to see you all having fun and relaxing. Aren't otters such magical creatures. It would be easier to say which spellbinders I don't use as they all get used on a regular basis. I love the sets of old, labels 4 for sentiments is fantastic and grand labels 1 for card bases. But ... I don't have the little leaves so ... thanks Elliott!! xxMargaretxx

Anonymous said...

Morning Christine, so glad you are having a good time, it is one of my favourite places so I was sure you would (weather permitting) The leaves would go so nicely with the others I have so maybe?....

Hi Christine, so pleased you are having a wonderful time. Thanks for sharing with us. And pleased you put the pics on your blog - I don't do facebook.
I would think the dies I use the most would have to be Labels 20 I think it is such an elegant shape followed by the poinsettia die at Christmas.
Thank you for the chance to win this set - you are such a kind person, thank you.

Jacquie said...

Hi Christine,

So glad you and the boys are having a wonderful time. love that part of the country.

Please do put me in the draw for these dies they are brilliant, so useful. I guess I use Delicate Asters and Labels Twenty the most so these would be fantastic.
Thank you for the opportunity.

Love & Hugs

I did warn you about them there hills! I remember Stitchill 'cos if you walk it too fast you certainly do get a 'stitch' and I was a lot younger then too. Thanks for the lovely photos. Carry on having fun!
Sue

SusanP, Kent said...

Forgot to mention my favourite die. It goes in phases - at the moment I'm 'into' squares (both sets) and using the dies to emboss a frame on the front of a card blank. This creates an attractive setting for a topper.

Anne O said...

Hi Christine,
So pleased to hear you're having a great time. I love that part of the country. At this time of the year, my most used die is the large filigree butterfly from Papillions 2. I put it on almost everything! But in the autumn, I love cutting snowflakes and I have more than one set which I mix and match to make patterns and collages.
Best wishes
Anne O

Hello Christine, really good to read about what you are doing on holiday. Glad you are enjoying yourselves and having nice weather.
It's very difficult to choose a 'favourite' die because I love them all but I do use different flower and butterfly dies a lot. Thank you for the chance of winning this lovely giveaway.
Enjoy the rest of your holiday with the boys.
Toni xx

Sharka said...

Happy that you all are enjoying your getaway... todays photo are great! I have to say that my go-to die is the Classic Scallop Circle. I have 3 scallop circle punches but they just don't ever seem to be the size I need.

Cinders61 said...

Enjoy the rest of your relaxing break,Christine. I love my jewel flower set. The flowers and flourish are my go to. I also love a lot of the d-lites as they can be used as main accents on small cards. Gillian x

Jen Brown said...

Morning Christine, so pleased you are all having a good time in Torquay. Brings back lots of lovely memories of my childhood visiting this gorgeous place. I love my labels dies and use them a lot, but I think my favourite has to be Opulent Ovals. The largest size is just perfect for the size of card I make the most 6x6. Thanks for the chance, enjoy what's left of your hols. Jen xxx

CraftyJo said...

So happy to hear you've been having fun in Devon :) My most-used Spellbinder dies are the nesting ovals and their wavy counterparts, use them all the time.
