Exciting News ...

Hi Everybody,

On the 23rd October I was introduced as the new
for Spellbinders and many of you kindly left me comments on Spellbinders Blog Post.

Part of my new job is to show you how to get the very best from any Spellbinders  that you buy and to demonstrate them on Create and Craft TV

It has been a whirlwind for me and I have never been so busy ... and I am truly loving every minute of it

But one of the really exciting things that has happened is an invitation to attend the Ambassadors Retreat in Phoenix Arizona.

And so bright and early on Monday morning I shall be boarding an air plane and heading off to the USA for a week of work, fun and adventure.

I shall be meeting lots of new people and learning lots of new things .... and I can't wait ... especially to be meeting Stacey Caron who is the owner of Spellbinders

I will be taking my camera and  blogging about my trip so I hope you will pop back to read what I have been up to.

Only six more sleeps to go and then I will be ....   leaving on a Jet plane .... wish me luck

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  21. Congratulations Christina, you certainly do give your best showing us how to get the best out of our dies. I wrote to Spellbinders and asked about the problems I was having using some of the Victorian dies and they said to try a lighter weight paper which I did and found it was much better. I also tried Glad Bake instead of waxed paper and that worked a treat. Can you tell us what gsm paper you use for these dies.
    Many thanks,
