Julia's Wedding Shows...

Happy Wednesday,

Julia Watts launches the One Day Special tonight on Hochanda with the wedding collection designed by Becca Feeken for Spellbinders.  I love Meccas work so I made some samples for the show for Julia .

As you can see I kind of went to town and made a sample pack for a whole wedding ( well Almost lol)I love the classic look of these in the gloss black and bright white foundation card.  I thought I would focus of the largest card and hopefully the most flexible today!

I stared this range by making the main invitation using the gloss black and the Spellbinders Filigree side pocket die.  I used the separate filigree section to cut into the gate fold piece of the card.

When opened the the invitation is visible at the back however there are 2 side pockets with the RSVP and evening invitation slid in.

This is quite a complex card to look at but quite easy to make if you tune into the shows I am sure Julia will take you around all the parts and show in her demos how these dies work.

Debt forget to tune it at 8pm this evening either online at or on sky or Freesat.  Hochanda will be back on freeview on the 3rd may!

  28. I so love Becca's designs. They are always to girly and delicate, she really knows how to fill every single millimetre of the cards she makes but they never ever look too much or OTT they are so tasteful.

  36. Hi John

    We all know that feeling of wanting to do more when inspiration hits! You've made a great job of these, very professional looking. These dies would work for many types of cards I think , some lovely designs in that collection.

    Hugs, T x

  37. Hello from Atlanta, GA. USA! I so enjoy seeing what you create, John! This is one of my favorites because it is so striking & dramatic. Thank you for such inspiration!

  38. Very impressive designs. I might consider getting some of those invitation cards for my brother’s wedding. His favorite color is black, and the black and white theme of those cards would certainly appeal him. Incidentally, he did demand a black and white theme for the reception when we were booking rental spaces for parties in LA.
