Spellbinder's Thank You Blog Hop

The Gina K Designs team would like to welcome you to this special Spellbinders Thank You Blog Hop! Recently Spellbinders generously gifted each member of our Design Team with the amazing new Grand Calibur!  [You should be coming from Valerie Stangle's blog]
 
What an exciting gift for sure and we are absolutely enjoying this fabulous machine!! We have made some special cards and projects to showcase the new Grand Calibur and why we are loving it so much!!    Thank you so very much Spellbinders!  
Here is my sample -
It is so fun to make these bigger shaped cards!   As you can see, I have 3 layers + a circle.  With this bigger machine (holds an 8x11.5 paper) you are able to cut multiple shapes at one time.  You all know my best friend was Cuttlebug -  but now, move over CB- I got GRAND CALIBUR!  I used the GKD set Little Critters, illustrated by Theresa Momber.
As usual, I am the last on this hop [gotta love being named Vicki - I wonder if my mom EVER thought about THAT :).]  I hope you enjoyed seeing the cards and projects the Gina K Designs Team has put together.  Isn't being inspired fun?  I love it~
Thanks for stopping by~ and, THANK YOU SPELLBINDERS!!
Just in case you want to pop back, here is the beginning : http://stamptv.ning.com/forum
