Spellbinders Celebra'tion Collection - #Spellbinders Review

I received products for review from Spellbinders Celebra'tion Collection. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may difer.

Several years ago I was big into making homemade cards using inks, embellishments, and colorful papers. I really enjoyed taking the time to make a card by hand, and it seemed to be a little more personal than a card bought at the store.

I was given the chance recently to create a card and a treat bag using the Spellbinders Celebra'tion Collection. It brought back fond memories of the times when I used to paper craft, and it reignited the fun in a hobby I used to love.

Spellbinders Celebra'tion by Richard Garay is a complete collection of dies, stamps, paper, inks and embellishments all coordinated to work together. Using the collection, you can create one-of-a-kind cards, gifts, and scrapbook layouts.

As with most any hobby, amassing a stockpile for paper crafts can be costly. The Spellbinders Celebra'tion collection is about on par for other paper crafts in the same category.

I made two projects using items from the Spellbinders Celebra'tion Collection. One was a Best Day Ever Treat Bag and the other was a Celebrate Party Hat Card. Although instructions are not included on how to create specific cards or other paper crafts when you purchase products from Spellbinders, you can look on their web page for how-to info and an Idea Gallery that shows paper crafts made by others, along with a list of the supplies used.

The treat bag and party hat card I created were super cute and fairly easy to put together. The overall aesthetic look of them makes them stand out from the ordinary.
