Amazing Paper Grace | Wedded Bliss

Hi crafty friends!  It seems like we have been waiting for months for February to roll around.  We have been working in the background, holding our breath, tapping our feet and waiting on tippie toes to show you a new collection!  Ta-dah!!!  Today we are introducing a new Amazing Paper Grace Collection called Make A Scene!!!  It was designed by Becca Feeken and is available at Spellbinders.  Stay tuned for a video link at the bottom of the post. NOW, TO EXPLAIN THIS TO YOU . . . In the past, Becca has created several interactive collections . . remember 3D Vignettes and remember Shadowbox Vignettes?  One of the things Becca does, is she tries to create a new twist on interactive that you can also use with flat cards and with past collections. That means new material for your old material. 

WHAT IS MAKE A SCENE? Make A Scene is an interactive card collection and a flat card collection, all in one – you choose based on your style.  The interactive portion is made with a card base that folds in six different layered scenery options.  The 3D card base folds flat but slides open to reveal a dimensional scene.  Since it has a 3D profile, the opened card makes quite a splash and can be set out on a desk for showing off.  The card base is huge and it offers you the chance to snag one of six scenes that cover many occasions.  If the six scenes are not your occasion du jour, then by all means dive into your huge stash of dies and insert your own contents.  The flat card portion is made with the individual scenes.  Each of the components for the scenes can be cut onto the top of a panel and used on a flat card or as part of a 3D Vignette or as part of a shadowbox scene. 

My Projects for Today

I’m using the Amazing Paper Grace Make a Scene Card Base Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken with the and Amazing Paper Grace Wedded Bliss Scene Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken for this interactive card. I also wanted to show that you can use your old Amazing Paper Grace dies with this collection – here I have using the beautiful Amazing Paper Grace Cascading Grace Etched Dies by Becca Feeken.

I have used the beautiful little fence die from the Amazing Paper Grace Cozy Home Scene Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken and the sentiment is from the Amazing Paper Grace Make a Scene Sentiments Clear Stamp Set from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken.

The flowers are made using the Amazing Paper Grace Grand Cinch and Go Flowers Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken and I have a photo tutorial on how I have made these flowers on the Amazing Paper Grace – Encouragement Group on Facebook here.

Designers Tip:

I found you cannot have a lot of bulk out wide in the front two layers as the layers will not slide through the side slots easily.

How to Assemble:

When you see the card base it will make total sense how this goes together.  Here is a quick start video to lay it all out for you.

Strawberry Ice

Today I have a tutorial on the Amazing Paper Grace – Creative Encouragement Group on Facebook on how I take inspiration from nature to make flowers for my projects. For this tutorial I have used the Strawberry Ice rose as my inspiration for my handcrafted roses. These are really easy to make and I hope you have a lot of fun making them.
