♥ XOXO ~ Amazing Paper Grace Style! ♥


Hello! I hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday. Stopping in today with a card I made with some gorgeous Spellbinders dies by Amazing Paper Grace. They are all from the Venise Lace collection.


The large background die is the Emmeline Treillage Dies. What an amazing die to work with! So beautiful!! The rectangle dies are the Hemstitch Rectangles Etched Dies. They are so fun too! Love these dies and how well they can all go together or be used separately.


And the flowers are the Cinch and Go Flowers Two Dies. They make making a flower so easy peasy! And they are so sweet too!


I hope you enjoy the rest of your day! ;)

♥ Simon Says...We're Seeing Stars ♥


Hello friends! We have a brand new challenge starting today at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog. This week we are...Seeing Stars! 


The Simon Says DT are showcasing products by My Favorite Things. For my card, I am using the Stitched Strip Die-Namics Die and the Boss Babe Clear Stamp Set.


I cut the card front on an angle and then added the Stitched Strip along the edge. The die also comes with some mini star, hearts and circles dies. So I added some mini stars to the front as well.


I finished it off with some May Arts Natural Twine and some lace.


And don't forget, the super sweet and generous Heidi will give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!

♥ Dream...every chance you get. ♥


Hello there! Just stopping in today with a super quick and easy card made with the Spellbinders Isabella Frame Dies from the Venise Lace Collection by Becca Feeken. Such a beautiful set! I actually used them as my card base to give an elegant lacy look to the card. I just simply die cut 2 frames out and using some glossy accents along the top part of the frame, formed my card base. I then added a piece of clear acetate to the back of the card to give it strength and stability. I then adhered the center part of the frame to the acetate on the inside of the card.


I am also using the Graceful Tiny Tag Stamp and Die Set as well as a sentiment from the Beautiful Dreamer Stamp and Die Set.


I hope you are having a beautiful Sunday! ;)

♥ Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team July Blog Hop ~ You've Been Framed! ♥


Good morning and thanks for joining us!  We have a blog hop going on today and the entire Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team spent the week creating with the Graceful Frame Maker.  We each picked a border from the Graceful Borders collection to work with and spun it into a mitered frame or mitered frame background for use on a card.   The Graceful Frame Maker is a die that will cut four miters to create a framed card  from borders, punched strips or tall dies - you can see a step by step tutorial -----> HERE and a video ----> HERE.

I'll tell you a little bit about my card and will share a link list below so that you can see the creations of each person on the Creative Team as well as learn how to win a free Amazing Paper Grace Venise Lace Collection Die.


For my card, I am using the Graceful Brackets Dies along with the Frame Maker Die. This is so easy and fun to do! For this card, I placed 4 of the Graceful Brackets die cuts more towards the outer part of the Frame Maker, which makes a larger frame.


On this card, I place the 4 borders closer to the center of the Frame Maker Die to make a smaller frame. 


Here you can see them side-by-side to see the difference in sizes.

How to Win:
Hop around to each Creative Team Member and leave a comment on each blog, one lucky winner will win a die of their choice from the Amazing Paper Grace Venise Lace Collection.    In making the rounds, a comment should be left on the July 11th Blog Post of each Creative Team member - in your comments let us know if there is a border or two that tickles your fancy.

When to Check Back:
We'll pick and post a winner on Saturday July 15.  The winner will be posted on the Amazing Paper Grace Blog.

How to Claim:
The winner has two weeks from the time the blog post is published to claim their die.  Simply click on the contact tab at the top right hand corner of the Amazing Paper Grace Blog, leave your mailing address and type the name of the die you'd like.  Becca will be sending out the winning die.  In fact, she's currently all caught up on mailing out winning dies :-)
