In March 2017 Create & Craft TV and Spellbinders announced an exclusive partnership designed to bring inspiration and even more product innovation to the channel, as the award-winning Spellbinders brand brings new guests, techniques and creative ideas to Create & Craft consumers.
Following highly successful range launches in April and May this year, Spellbinders are set to bring three more stunning die collections this June; Marisa Job’s Celebrate the Day, and two collections from Sharyn Sowell- Christmas and Joyous Celebrations.
The Marisa Job’s Celebrate the Day collection launches on Create and Craft on Friday 2nd June. Marisa Job is famous for wearing her passion for creativity on her sleeve which she loves to share with the rest of the crafting community. Her Celebrate the Day collection features tile and box dies which work together to create something special in a snap, while her pop-ups are the easiest way to make someone smile and lighten their day.

Just a few weeks later, on Tuesday 20th June, Spellbinders are bringing another TWO wonderful collections to Create and Craft, featuring exclusive designs from the fabulous Sharyn Sowell.
These two collections hold something for everyone, with both an everyday selection in the Joyous Celebrations collection and something festive in her Christmas collection too.
