Spellbinders Out on a Limb Tutorial

For today's Spellbinders Tutorial I am sharing a layout and have the most adorable subject - our new (and first) grandson, Noah!  I love to scrapbook, but time does not allow me to do as much as I would like - therefore it is imperative that I am able to get the look I am wanting and not take hours - which I tend to do. 

 As you will see from this Tutorial - Spellbinders Dies certainly make it easier....

As you can see - scrapbooking does not have to be complicated to look good!  This layout was simple - with the help of a few Spellbinders Die sets!  I hope you are inspired to use your Dies on your projects - we are only limited by our imagination!

  1. Aww Linda this is so pretty - a beautiful tribute to Noah.

  2. We just had our 8th grandchild, what a lovely card this would have been to make for the parents. "What a lovely keepsake. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Our only grandson is 20 years old and it seems like yesterday that he was Noah's age. Enjoy every minute and write down all the funny things he does and says as he grows. You will get lots of laughs as you look back. Congratulations to his parents and to you .xx

  4. Noah is beautiful! We have two grandsons and a granddaughter who make our life so full and amazing! Watching them grow up is such a special time!
    It makes me wish I had known as a parent what I know as a grandparent because I would have spent so much more time doing things WITH my sons rather than FOR them. TO have that knowledge would have been wonderful but like a fine wine we get better with age!
    Enjoy every second because they grow up so fast these days that it seems like the blink of an eye!
