Here are the new dies I introduced:

Sku Name EL-004 Imperial
MSRP: $9.99
PRODUCT SIZE:
5 X 7”

I am so excited to feature the new and innovative Spellbinders M-Bossabilities folders! These are unique reversible folders, with 2 separate yet coordinated embossing patterns for twice the designs and double the value! The folders simply flip over, so easy to use! There are 20 new folders, each with 2 designs, and they come in 2 sizes, 5 x 7” and 4 ¼ x 5 ½” for all your paper crafting needs!

Watch this introductory video!



See how to use the new Spellbinders M-Bossabilities in this video!






 
*Quick tip:  I have a piece of cardstock labeled 1 and 2 on each side.  I ran it through my Spellbinders M-Bossabilities folder to help me visualize what would emboss and what would deboss.  I then marked my M-Bossablities with the coordinating number for quick placement while working on a project.   This picture shows the embossed (raised) pattern on the cardstock.  This is especially helpful when using double-sided patterned paper and trying to choose which pattern you would like on which side of paper.

*Here’s the opposite side of the pattern showing how it’s de-bossed.  You can just store these with your M-Bossabilities for quick reference while using them.

Here is how to make the bones of the mini album. I cut my patterned paper from the #2 die template from the LF-168 Grand Large Labels.
Again, I lay my M-Bossabilities and my cheat sheet down to determine which pattern I am going to use.
I align my pattern paper face down onto the M-Bossabilities, close the folder, then place the Grand Raspberry Plate on top.
Run the sandwich through the Grand Calibur® Die cutting machine.

Take a sanding block and lightly sand the embossed pattern.
Repeat the whole process which another die cut to create a back page to the one already made.

Again, line up your patterned paper onto the M-Bossabilties, close the folder, and emboss by running through your Grand Calibur. 


Sand to expose embossed pattern detail on patterned paper. 


The finished products!  You can now adhere these back to back to create a page for your mini album.
Here are all the pages in its entirety.

My Second project is a layout I used the EL-004 Imperial M-Bossabilities on.
I embossed the stars, and blue patterned paper strip with both sides of the folder.
