In the spotlight: Spellbinders Small and Large Die of the Month kits - March 2020

Hello there crafty peeps,

I'm stopping by today to share some projects with the lovely Spellbinders March 2020 Small and Large Die kits! Are you guys ready for Easter?! This month's kits are all about Easter! I'll be honest, Easter is not a big thing for us, we probably would not even celebrate it if we didn't have a child. Cos presents, of course haha! But I have several friends for whom Easter is a bigger event than Christmas, so...I was happy to work on Easter projects for a change, I rarely ever do otherwise!

As a reminder, Spellbinders have several monthly kits, which are really great! You can subscribe to:
You can find all necessary information about these kits here.

I'll start with the Large Die kit. This month you can create little Easter baskets with your dies! Aren't they adorable? I was actually going to create cards with them, but then I saw the baskets are not too small and would be great for Easter candy and such so I changed my mind.

Can you believe I only realized when I was editing the photos that I did not fill the baskets hahhaha. So now you'll just have to imagine the candy in there, sorrrry :D.

By the way, the patterned papers I used are from Paige Evans' new Bloom Street collection! I thought the lovely pastel colors work great for Easter.

What you can't see in these pictures, the bunnies actually have full bodies so you can totally use them without the basket too!

The baskets are very simple to put together but you get a pictorial with your dies every month, so no need to worry. These die sets often have a million small pieces and it can get overwhelming at first. This one was pretty straightforward though. There's some leaves and flowers too, to decorate your baskets with!

The Small Die kit is also Easter themed. There's a big carrot die with leaves and flowers as well as two different bunnies. Also included the "What's up?" sentiment die.

For these cards I chose some papers from Alexandra Renke. I think they go well with the theme.

These cards required quite a lot of die cutting (especially the little flowers and foliage...) but I'm always watching some show while I'm crafting so I don't mind :).

So what do you think about this month's die kits? Are you excited to get your hands on them?!

If you have any questions at all, just leave a comment below and I'll get back to you! I hope I could inspire you in some way with these projects.

Thanks for stopping by today! Happy crafting!
