    THANK YOU Spellbinders for bringing such incredible new designers this year. I love all the new products. I can’t wait to see what else is coming for 2024.

    • Alice Langenecker

      I loved all the entries just because they gave me so much inspiration as I am a newbie in the card making, and this was great. Not only wonderful cards, but now I have great help yo follow also!!!!!! My favorite was the Dancin Mouse Die it was so sweet.

    • Angelique Vuur

      There are so many new great products for Christmas, all beautiful and fun to work with. But I also have an old embossingfolder wich is still gorgeous. So when I must choose I do the other products short. Thank you and a big thank you to all the designers for there inspiration!

    • Denise Curtiss

      I love the Merry and Bright set with the poinsettia, candy cane and the sweet little bird! So very cute and lots you can do with this set.

    • Teresa Schumacher

      I absolutely love the Classic Christmas collection! This whole set is definitely going on my Christmas list.

    • Lola Olds

      I am new to Spellbinders and love everything! I am watching videos to learn as much as I can on the various techniques that make all of these cards so gorgeous. Thank you Spellbinders, now I can make cards that will others will want.

  • Joy

    The collections this year have been amazing, By far this has been the best year of crafting. Thanks Spellbinders for your creativity!’
    Hugs, Joy

    • jshixon

      So many beautiful things this year! I really loved Simon’s snowglobes ! They are each just gorgeous, and I love that the elements can be mixed and matched to create entirely new scenes!

  • E Nelson

    Envelope of Wonder is my favorite. Not only does it have so many wonderful elements for Holiday cards, but it also has pieces that can be used year round. That helps me get more use out of my investment.

    • Nicole Ott

      Where to even choose!!! Live the Gnome drives and the Glimmer for the Holidays but recently found and loving the Simon snow Globes! Love everything released by Spellbinders. Thank you!!

    • MD Wagner

      Family wonders why only winter and Christmas- the collections speak for themselves. It takes all year to get all the ideas out my head just to start all over again. Love them.

  • Cheri Mrkva

    Wow what a tough decision while everyone is great! I’m drawn to Spellbinders Exclusive Collection and Simon Hurley’s snowglobes!

  • Alinda M. Littrel

    I just love the Season’s Greetings, Deer Etched Die Set. I was able to make this one with felt and it was really impressive.

  • Katrina Lee

    The Betterpress has been my favorite purchase this year and the Christmas items for it have been my favorites by far. They can be so intricate, yet the image is crisp and clean, every time!

  • Katy Ho

    I love them all. But the one I cannot get enough of is the dancin’ Christmas. I keep going back to it because it is so fun to make.

  • Cathy Moore

    I have been so in love with the BetterPress ever since it came out! But the dies and the ideas have been just endless! I wish I could stick to one line of products but that is just impossible!

  • Laura Keehn

    I would be hard pressed to identify a single favorite but I love the Simon Hurley snow globes, the Merry Mugs, stitched for Christmas, and on and on. Lots of beautiful and creative choices!

  • Susan Kraft

    I love the snow globe by Jean Manis but I also like that Kristie Marcotte gave all the various demensions of the different elements of her cards..

  • bzyptmom28

    Lovely cards featuring lovely products! I need to get to making my Christmas cards–but there are so many great deals and blog hops right now distracting me! Thanks for the inspiration!

  • Susan Joyner

    It is so hard to choose just one favorite, but I love the snow garden by Susan. The attention to detail on these flowers is so realistic.

  • Laura Rybarczyk

    I received Merry and Bright for the Crop and Create Delivered and love the collection! I haven’t put it away since receiving it! Such great ideas here!!

  • Joy

    I am a complete newbie and am so excited to get crafting! I’m expecting my machines to arrive today and will be collecting other needed tools/supplies as I go along. I’m dying to try out the foils….the glimmer cards are so beautiful! I can already tell that I better request an additional shift each week to support my new hobby! 😂

  • Tina C

    So many cute holiday products in 2023…my favorite is the Stitched for Christmas. The sweater die was so (NOT) ugly. 🙂

  • Debbie Newman

    It’s so difficult to choose just one favorite product. I love snow globes and the one with the deer and tree is my favorite. How can you have a snow globe without snow? The sparkling 3D snow embossing folder is a favorite as well.

  • Janet Potts

    It’s hard to choose a favorite because there’s so many great products. I keep telling myself that I have enough Spellbinders Christmas themed products to make all the Christmas cards I need for the rest of my life and never make the exact same one twice. But then you come out with another collection and I can’t help myself.

  • Sandra Lym Riches

    I like all of the 2023 holiday collections but my favorite is.the De-light-ful Christmas Collection by Yana Smakula. Thanks for all of the beautiful ideas that have been shared.

  • Paula Glessner

    I fell in LOVE with the Snowflake Ornament stencils by Bibi after watching her YouTube video a few weeks ago. I bought the stencils immediately! Can’t wait to use them on everything. I am even thinking about making my own holiday wrapping paper this year using these beautiful stencils.

  • Jan Casstle

    My favorite is ‘Sealed Christmas Sprigs’…Vicky P. design using this set is STUNNING…so elegant! This set is so versatile and can be used in so many ways…going on my wish list for sure!!!!!

  • Sally

    My favorite is the snow globe set by Simon Hurley. Snow globes are very versatile and it’s fun to keep changing the scenes inside with new AND old products already in one’s stash.

  • Titus2Homemaker

    Wow; that’s a lot of collections! I’m partial to both of the Simon Hurley collections. (Love that Nativity snow globe option!)

  • Stephanie Larime

    I love them all but my favorite would have to be “Dancin Christmas”. I collect Gingerbreads and your are just so stinking cute.

  • Yen O.

    everyone’s card are so beautiful! the hardest choice is trying to figure out which one to do first. i like how many are doing pink poinsettia instead of the typical red ones.

  • Charlotte Canning

    Spellbinders, you have outdone yourselves this year with all your wonderful products and collections. The holiday collections are outstanding! Thank you.

  • Tracy Ross

    I have so many of the products from this year it is hard to pick just one favourite. I think if it has to be just one, it is the envelope of wonder. Love all these new collections.

  • Kerry Evans

    Well, that was a journey! I saw a ton of gorgeous work today. It is also interesting to note how people’s different personalities show up through their blogs. I am glad I don’t have to compete with any of those talented people! Now, I am going to age myself and most likely Ellen, but I used to subscribe to House Mouse, when I lived in Arizona in the 90’s! I don’t remember how I found her, but she put out a little catalog back then and I would order her things from time to time. I was thrilled to see her and her mouse friends on your website, so I am picking House Mouse as my favorite! Thank you for a lovely journey today. Whether I win the gift certificate or not, I still win in the end!

  • SSchmidt

    So much inspiration in this blog hop! I am so glad I visited each blog since I must have missed several of the releases. Who knew Simon Hurley had a snow globe set. Lots of things to put on my wish list.

  • Elizabeth Holland

    I love the Spellbinders Poinsettia Bloom dies!! And all your embossing folders are the best. I just switched to your large die of the month kit and I can’t wait to get it. Your products are top quality. Keep up the great work!! ❤️

  • Deborah Goatee

    Sooo many beautiful cards and tags!! I want to make them all and can’t pick a favorite. My husband might not see me until after Christmas. Thanks for this blog.

  • Pamela Rose

    Oh my so many to choose from, Bibi’s Snowflake collection, Classic Christmas Collection, Merry mug…I think I love them all:)

  • Pamela Rose

    So many to choose from! I love Bibi’s Snowflake collection, Simon’s Snowglobe, Merry Much, Classic Christmas. I love them all

    I love then all!! If I have to choose then Classic Christmas and the Snowflake Collection are my favorites…or maybe the Snowglobe collection and Merry Mugs…sigh

  • Shannon Hornback

    My favorite collection this year are the dancin’ christmas dies, my favorite being the figgy pudding. They are just too adorable, perfect for just about anyone especially children. You have a really great design team!!

  • Shannon Hornback

    My favorite die set is the dancin’ Christmas dies with the figgy pudding as my favorite. Perfect for any age, most especially children. Great inspiration from the spellbinders design team!!

  • Cynthia Atienza

    There are so many beautiful collections, but my favorite is the Dancin’ Christmas Collections. I had fun creating them and making sure the legs were moving freely. I specially love the Dancin’ Gingerbread – they were so cute!

  • Pam Hellewell

    I am in love with Simon Hurleys snow globe collection. I bought the main one plus the nativity and woodland extra add ons. I can’t wait to make this years christmas cards.

  • Patsy Armstead

    I love all of the new holiday collections from Spellbinders. I love the different styles and sizes of sentiments. I own so many of them but there’s always room for more!

  • Liz Shultz

    I love it all! But especially the Stitched For Christmas collection. Mixing stitching and paper crafting makes me happy!

  • Tabitha MacKenzie

    My favorite is the MERRY MUG & CIRCLE DELIGHTS COLLECTION BY NICHOL SPOHR. I bought the whole suite. I love pretty much everything associated with Nichol. She’s such a great designer.

  • Barbara McDonald

    I love the snow globe die set designed by Simon Hurley. What a versatile collection. I envision the various piece of the sets to be used on a card front not inside the globe. I feel the various sets are appropriate for all types that one would celebrate the holiday season. Whether you are religious, believe in Santa or are a nature lover, there is a die set that will cover you.

    • Andrea H

      Oh WOW. I fully loved this blog hop, so much inspiration. Thank you to all who took place in the blog hop. I love all THE DANCIN’ CHRISTMAS COLLECTION. But the
      DANCIN’ PENGUIN has to be my favourite they look so cheeky but having tons of fun. X X

  • Lora Bowman

    House mouse or Snow Globe Collection… It is a toss up between the two as my favorite.
    So much talent through all your Christmas releases. Wow, 22!!! Amazing.
    Thank you for an awesome year!!!❤️

  • Lisa

    Hello Spellbinders, I love your die sets. No one does dies like you do. The etched flowers are so amazing! Of the Christmas dies I love the July small die of the month Christmas tree.

  • KathyP

    What a lovely blog hop! I can’t pick a favorite but I’m partial to the Birds and Poinsettia set, Bibi’s Snowflakes and the Wreath set!

  • Cheryl Hellem

    I absolutely love all 4 of Simon Hurley’s snow globe die sets. Can’t decide which ones to get first! ♥️

  • Julie

    Difficult choosing just 1 as the House Mouse is always cute particularly the mouse pulling the ornament, but for me it is Yana’s De-Light-Ful

  • Lee

    Without a doubt I love Yana’s collection. She never disappoints. I particularly love the poinsettia dies but all 4 would make unique and lovely cards to send to all those I love.

  • Joyce Whitten

    Oh my gosh! Even though I’ve finished my 95 Christmas cards I’m still ordering and using Spellbinders products. They are SO lovely and innovative I just can’t resist.

  • Donna J

    This is the best blog hop ever! It’s very difficult to pick a favorite, but I’ve always be fascinated by snow globes. Simon’s Snow Globe collection won my heart.

  • Sherry Prag

    I am in love with so many Spellbinders holiday items. I have a Betterpress and love the new Christmas tree. I especially love the stamp and die set of the month, Festive Penguins. I have had a blast coloring them in festive colors for my cards.

  • Chris Chamberlain

    Your products are always excellent. I love the Make it Merry collection. I purchased several items and am using them on this years Christmas cards. Thank you for great items–it’s always so fun to see them!!

  • Judy Inukai

    What an awesome and inspiring blog hop. How in the world can one pick a favorite? OK I’ll admit it – Santa’s Here is my fave and I was glad to see a detailed video of putting him together. All the products are amazing.

  • Debra Long

    SNOW GARDEN COLLECTION BY SUSAN TIERNEY-COCKBURN – her designs and excellent attention to detail
    Makes her designs a go-to for me everytime I shop.

  • Jenn Roop

    I love the holiday season and all the inspiration to be found in these blog hops! My favourite collection this year has to be the Merry Mug and Circle Bundle!

  • Babette deWall

    All of creators did a fabulous job! My favorite is Yana’s card! I also really like several of the cards made with Simon Hurley’s snow globes and I love the Merry mugs and the wreath cards!

  • Judy R

    I loved simon’s snow globe collection by Simon Hurley. There are so many scenes to choose from that you could you this set for several Christmas seasons and make a series out of them.

  • Hilda Bankston

    Both cards are pretty. However, my preference is the poinsettia and bird. I love the products Spellbinders puts out and look forward to what comes in the mail each month. Hilda Bankston

  • Theresa Harrison

    My favourite??? There are so many festive products to choose from! … My ultimate favourite is “Nutcracker Sweet”!, … so cute!

  • Linda Wood

    Thanks for this fabulous, extensive and creative blog hop. My favorite collections are Bibi’s Snowflakes, Classic Christmas and House-Mouse. This is all wonderful.

  • Valree

    What a wonderful collection! I adore the nutcrackers! Yana’s poinsettias are stunning the Better Press Christmas frame is also beautiful. I don’t have a Better Press yet but every new product tempts me a little more. Thanks for the chance to win.

  • Jenn Roop

    I love your blog hops! So much fantastic inspiration. My fave Christmas collection this year has to be the Merry Mugs and Circle Delights. I love the versatility of those dies.

  • Irene Addison

    How can I possibly pick from this fabulous release. Spellbinders products show up on so many of my cards this year. The Betterpress plates are fabulous but if forced to choose, it would be Bibi’s snowflakes….just divine!!!

  • rootbeeronthefloor

    Hi. After really studying the all your great new Holiday collections, I finally decided that if I HAD to pick just one product from all of them, it would be the Santa’s Here die set from the Classic Christmas Collection. I don’t currently have any Santa’s in my die stash at the moment. I like this one’s face and that his expression and arms can be changed up to create different looks for him. Also, thanks for the blog hop (never done one before but… off to collection some inspiration.) 🙂

  • Monika D

    Fantastic blog hop! There’s too many to choose from, but for this CHRISTmas I love the snow globe collections, especially the nativity scene!

  • kathleen dumpert

    Spellbinders has so many amazing products but one of favorites is your mailbox die with those amazing foil sentiments that were an a fun add on!

  • Terrie D. (StarSpry)

    Wow! You released so many great collections! Some of my favorites are Bibi’s Snowflakes collection, Glimmer For The Holidays collection, Season’s Greetings Press Plate & Die Set, Christmas Bird Poinsettia Etched Dies and Woodland Scene Etched Dies 🙂
