But It's "Not" Christmas Blog Hop

Don't you just love a die that does double duty?  We thought so!  Today we're are having a blog hop to show you how the dies in The Charming Christmas Collection can be used year round; after all, it's not Christmas.  No worries, Christmas is coming and we'll press A Charming Christmas back into service this year but in the meantime, please join us for some year-round inspiration and a giveaway at the bottom of the post.

It's Not Christmas but About A Charming Christmas

Becca designed A Charming Christmas with lovely romantic frames and shapes and with charms.  Leave the charms in the package and you have a lovely 'everyday' die that is begging to be used all year round.  Hop around with us as we reintroduce you to the non-Christmas side of A Charming Christmas.

My Projects For Today.

The die I'm showing today is a Charming Tag Pocket from a Charming Christmas Collection designed by Becca Feeken.

On my card, I put a mini pocket made from two pieces of die cut glued together. Inside is put a mini book with wishes. The right side of my card I decorated by a beautiful pattern from Charming Tag Pocket. A small bow and little flowers are added to make the card more subtle.
