How To Use Spellbinders Enhancing Elements Correctly

Tuesday, July 30th, 2013

This post is about how to use the Spellbinders Enhancing Elements Nestabilities Dies correctly and effectively. There is a bit of misunderstanding already with these dies and we want to clarify a few things for you. We hope that the image below will give you a visual on exactly how these nestabilities dies are supposed to work in your machine.

First, thing you need to know is that Enhancing Elements are designed to work with ALL NESTABILITIES!

Next, is that these unique dies by Spellbinders Paper Arts CAN BE used on their own to create beautiful INSET creations. Since they are designed with the Spellbinders Imperial Gold technology, they will CUT, EMBOSS, STENCIL, and DEBOSS too!

Finally, when enhancing elements are paired with other Nestabilities dies you then are able to EXPAND your existing die collection with multiple different looks and one of a kind designs.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The Enhancing Elements do not cut the geometric shape. You will need the corresponding Classic Large Nestabilities in Circle, Oval, Square or Rectangle to cut the shapeS. These dies are sold separately, but with all you can apply the 40% Off Coupon to any of these dies.

See this video below on How to Use Spellbinders Enhancing Elements Inset Dies with your Existing Nestabilities Shapes.

If you have any questions feel free to call us and discuss what kind of layout you are trying to do and we will gladly be able to help with any of your scrapbook layouts or card making projects. Hope this scrapbooking product review of the Enhancing elements by spellbinders creative arts helps you out!


Spellbinders Abilities and Beyond Blog Frenzy-Day Eight!

Thursday, January 19th, 2012

We have arrived to the final day of Spellbinders Abilities and Beyond Blog Frenzy already! Now, there’s no need for tears. We can look forward to seeing more of the CHA releases soon! We have only seen a portion of the release, and trust me, there is still more to come! I believe patience is a virtue many of us crafters still have to work on, myself included!

With that said, let’s get moving on today’s frenzy! We have been given a treat today of four amazing designers sharing their talents with us on the projects they have created with the Spellbinders products they have been given to work with. I continue to be in awe every day!

We begin with designer Gloria Stengel using the S5-102 Aster Flower Topper Shapeabilities  and E8-012 Classic Decorative Inserts Four on her get well window card and sunflower tag. I know I would feel better instantly if I received one of these! Adorable Gloria!

Product Sizes:

1. Flower Center: 1 3/8″
2. Aster Flower 1: 2 3/8″
3. Aster Flower 2: 2 3/8″
4. Aster Flower 3: 3

Product Sizes:

1. Flowers: 5/8 x 8″
2. Dots: 3/4 x 8″
3. Large Flowers: 1 x 8″









Designer Nina Brackett has made some very personal gifts with the dies she was presented with. She has designed two unique necklaces with coordinating cards using S5-088 Sewing Elements  and S5-089 Home Sweet Home shapeabilities. She cut and embossed the shapes out of shrink film,  using markers for highlighting and stamping different designs on them before baking. Ingenious Nina!


Product Sizes:

1. Spool: 1 1/2 x 2″
2. Machine: 2 1/2 x 2 1/8″
3. Pin Cushion: 1 7/8 x 1 7/8″
4. Dress Form: 1 x 2 7/8″
5. Buttons small: 3/8″
6. Buttons large: 1/2″
7. Thimble: 1 x 1″
8. Scissors: 1 5/8 x 3/4″

Product Sizes:

1. House: 1 5/8 x 2″
2. Roof: 2 1/2 x 1 1/4″
3. Star large: 1 7/8 x 1 3/4″
4. Star small: 7/8 x 3/4″
5. Heart large: 1 1/8 x 1 1/8″
6. Heart small: 3/8 x 3/8″
7. 4 Petal Flower large: 7/8″
8. 4 Petal Flower small: 1/2″
9. 8 Petal Flower: 5/8″
10. Wings: 2 1/4 x 1″
11. Round Tag: 1 1/4 x 1″
12. Rectangle Tag: 1 1/4 x 7/8″



I can’t even tell you how much I already love the new M-Bossabilities folders! I am thrilled that Spellbinders thought to utilize both sides of the folder with different, but coordinating patterns. Not only does it save storage space, but it saves time not having to switch folders! This was a brilliant idea in my book!

Designer Tina McDonald makes great use of the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″ ES-001 Simplicity M-Bossabilities on her trinket box and tag. She was also given the S5-068 Decorative Dress Forms shapeabilities which she incorporated beautifully on these projects.  I believe she also snuck in a few other new items! I’ll let you figure out which ones. Fabulous projects Tina!

Product Sizes:

1. Lattice: 1 7/8 x 2 1/4″
2. Scalloped: 2 1/8 x 2 5/8″
3. Plain: 1 3/4 x 3 1/8″
4. Swirls: 1 3/4 x 3 1/8″


Our final designer for this incredible Blog Frenzy is….(drum roll please!) Windy Robinson! I don’t even want to know how long it took her to roll all of these gorgeous flowers! At first I thought they were real and that the project was the box, but then I saw the dies she was using! Wow! This is over the top Windy! She did a fabulous job creating her beautiful flower box and card using the following dies. Just take a look for yourselves!

S4-357 Spiral Blossom Three:

Product Size:

Flower: 4 3/8″

EL-oo5 Splendid M-Bossabilities










I believe we have been extremely blessed with inspiration over the past eight days. Don’t you think? In behalf of  Cut@Home, I would like to express our appreciation to Spellbinders and their designers for permitting us to be included in this wonderful Blog Frenzy. Thank you so much!

I would also like to thank you, our customers, for participating with us! It has been lots of fun!

**Reminder- If you have already placed a pre-order and would like additional pre-order items, you can add to your existing pre-order at any time during the pre-order season! This will save you shipping!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!


Spellbinders Abilities and Beyond Blog Frenzy-Day Seven!

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

Here we are, already on day seven of Spellbinders Abilities and Beyond Blog Frenzy! Can you believe it? Only two days left! I am in awe of today’s products and designer projects! We have some spectacular things to show you today, so let’s not waste another minute!

Designer Linda Duke introduces Spellbinders first item of the day S5-090 Romantic Rectangles Nestabilities with two projects that fit the name! There is most definitely an elegant, romantic touch to her projects which truly proves paper crafting an art! These are wonderful Linda!

Product sizes:

1. 1 1/4 x 1″
2. 2 7/8 x 1 7/8″
3. 4 1/4 x 2 3/4″
4. 5 7/8 x 3 7/8″














There must be a romance in the air, because designer Sherry Cheever has designed her projects with a similar feel. The intricate S5-064 Moroccan Accents and S5-065 Moroccan Motifs was her inspiration to create her lovely box and lantern below. Thank you Sherry!

S5-064 Moroccan Accents:


Product sizes:

1. Border: 9 x 7/8″
2. Corners: 2 x 1 1/4″
3. Star Small: 1/2″
4. Star large: 3/4″
5. Oblong Accent: 1 5/8 x 3″
6. Large Accent: 2 3/4″

S5-065 Moroccan Motifs:

2. Star: 1 3/4″
3. Round: 1 1/8″
4. Motif small: 1 1/2″
5. Motif medium: 2 1/2″
6. Motif large: 4 1/8″













And now, on to our final revelation of the day. AJ Otto has made wonderful use of 5 x 7″ EL-004 Imperial M-Bossabilities by creating an oh so cute- mini album and fun layout! She shows us how versatile these reversible M-Bossabilites are to emboss different projects! Thanks for sharing AJ!




These are all so great!  One of the things I love about crafting is that you can give two people the same items and put them to work and their projects will turn out so very different! The great thing about these tools for paper crafting is you can use them over and over and never turn out the same look twice! There are just so many p0ssabilities!

**Reminder- If you have already placed a pre-order and would like additional pre-order items, you can add to your existing pre-order at any time during the pre-order season! This will save you shipping!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Getting Geared Up For Spellbinders Blog Frenzy!

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

Can you believe it is time already for Spellbinders Blog Frenzy?  It seems like the time has literally flown by it! This sneak peak will run January 12-20, 2012. I am positive we will all be thrilled once again with this preview. They somehow keep getting better every time!

We will show you amazing projects from the fabulous designers at Spellbinders and the incredible new Spellbinders products that will be introduced at this year’s CHA Show at the end of this month!

Honestly, I don’t know if I’ll be able to sleep tonight. I tend to do that when I get to excited over new stuff! I really should stop it. Loosing sleep over scrapbooking supplies that I haven’t seen yet is a bit ridiculous, don’t you think? I’ll probably stay awake all night before we leave for CHA too…. again, that crazy excitement.

Make sure you schedule a few minutes every day to check our blog, so you can stay caught up with the latest and greatest Spellbinders sneak peak to date! You won’t be disappointed!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!



Craft and Hobby Association Show Summer 2011 (CHA)!

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

We’re here! Marcie and I are in Chicago at Craft and Hobby Association Show which we commonly know as CHA. We have been busy as bees going from booth to booth gathering information on all of the “latest and greatest” products and ordering from all our favorite designers so we can bring you highest quality, popular products on the market!  I can tell you now that you are going to love what is coming!

Here’s a shot of Marcie while visiting the Graphic 45 booth! Say Cheese!

Graphic 45 has done some amazing projects with their new paper lines. Here’s a sample of the Christmas Emporium and ABC Primer!

Heartfelt Creations made beautiful paper bouquets that look quite real!

We saw the new line of Nesting Dies from QuicKutz and Framelits from Sizzix. The new Nestaboard from Want2Scrap is HOT! Just Rite Stampers also has great  new stamp sets that coordinate with Spellbinders dies! Teresa Collins is not only talented, but stylish! We also visited My Mind’s Eye, Provo Craft and Silhouette .Everyone is on board and excited to bring you what’s new!

I hope that you have taken a few minutes to look at all the rest of the pre-order dies from Spellbinders that were made viewable this morning! Astounding!

This may be the best CHA release to date! Of course, since this is the first show that I have been to, it is the most exciting one for me! I am having a blast here in Chicago! It is most definitely a paper crafter’s heaven! Can’t wait until tomorrow for more exciting products from DCWV, Tim Holz, and anyone else that catches our eye!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’ from Chicago!
