Amazing Paper Grace Holiday Medley – All is Calm

This magical menagerie of dies helps celebrate one of the most festive times of the year through paper crafting! The Holiday Medley Collection consists of eight die sets and a Glimmer Hot Foil Plate Set that coordinates with one of the die sets. The array of dies can be mixed within existing die sets to offer more creative options. These include the Make a Scene Card Base and 3D Vignettes. The versatile new Merry Filigree Card Builder, Celebrate Scrollwork Card Builder and Joy Crescent Card Builder sets create different card formats from A2, A7, Mini Slimline, to Slimline. In addition, you can remove the Christmas Motifs and use them year-round.

Today’s projects were created with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.

My Project for Today

I have made a small square notecard featuring the beautiful square dies from the Amazing Paper Grace All is Calm Word Frame Etched Dies from the Holiday Medley Collection by Becca Feeken. The small embellishment is from the Amazing Paper Grace Merry Filigree Card Builder Etched Dies from the Holiday Medley Collection by Becca Feeken. I have kept this very simple and it would be so easy to mass produce this lovely card in different colour combinations.

Amazing Paper Grace October Die of the Month Blog Hop – Flourished Fleurit

Elegance is our go-to style at Amazing Paper Grace.  We are always on the hunt for those elegant elements that you can add to a card that gives it just the right feel and appeal.  This month we’re head over heels for a year around a cascade of tendrils that can be snipped here and there to be used for top and bottom card decoration.  Say welcome to the Amazing Paper Grace October 2021 Die of the Month – Flourished Fleurit.

The inspiration for Flourished Fleurit comes from looking through our stashes for just the right Rectangle or just the right Square.  Guess what – Flourished Fleurit can be both.  A snip here or a snip there puts give is just the right proportion to be a rectangle or a square.  We cleverly added in sprigs of flowers so that you can cover your transitions.  Hunting for elegant corners for a slimline – look no further.  A slip or two has you covered.

 Here are some ideas that might inspire you to create:

 1.  Snip between all four corners for slimline decoration
 2.  Snip between the connecting rod and cinch for a square
 3.  Cut as a rectangle for a beautiful A7 layout with many options.


**Dies for my creations today were supplied by Amazing Paper Grace.**

There are 9 dies included in the Flourished Fleurit.

My Project Today using Flourished Fleurit.

For my shaped card I have kept to a simple white on white finish with just a hint of gold in the inner decorative die and the hot foiled sentiment. I finished with a pop of colour with the flowers and leaves.

The little basket was very quick and easy to create – just score a single die cut at the edges where the flourishes finish and fold up. Make a little box and add to the centre of the die, add flowers and finish with a ribbon boow. Just add chocolates and you have a beautiful gift basket.

Designer Tip: 

Trim the gold inner decorative die in the centre and then adhere to each end slightly overlapping the dies. This allows the gold edge to overlap more evenly.

Amazing Paper Grace September Die of the Month Blog Hop – Pop Up 3D Vignette Vintage Cash Register

Cha-ching!  Is there any living person that hasn’t absolutely been intrigued by a Cash Register and all of its compartments and treasure it holds inside?  As kids, it’s one of the first grown up toys we played with.  The sound of a cash register ringing means prosperity and so many good things.  Say welcome to the Amazing Paper Grace September 2021 Die of the Month – Pop Up 3D Vignette Vintage Cash Register.   

The light-hearted, pun-filled sentiments are perfect for any occasion, to send this 3D Fold Flat card.  Want to let someone know how valuable they are to you? Then the “Priceless” sentiment will say that loud and clear.  Want to express your opinion?  Then actually you’re looking for the “Just My .02” sentiment.  It’s so cute, there’s even a front drawer where you can actually fold and put in some currency. 

Here are some ideas that might inspire you to create:

1. Make the traditional cash register and stock it with gift cards

2. Make a basket from both facades for donations or as a friendly tip jar

3. Are you in the middle of a fundraiser?  Use it as a table favor to break the ice.

4. Create a mini album with a cash register on the front and back for kids to record their savings 

***Dies for my creations today were supplied by Amazing Paper Grace.

My Projects Today using Pop Up 3D Vignette Vintage Cash Register.

I have made a pop up 3D card using a combination of pink, gold and alabaster colours to create great contrast. I have added some sweet flowers using the Amazing Paper Grace Petite Floral Potpourri Etched Dies from Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection by Becca Feeken.

Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes I Heartfelt Thanks

Beautiful card front sentiments do the heavy lifting on a card and the recipient knows exactly what you are trying to say. In that spirit, today we are introducing a new collection called Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes. It spins beautiful, intertwined calligraphic words into a compact label shape, perfect for the front of your card.

Dies for my creations today were supplied by Amazing Paper Grace.

Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Inspiration

Many Amazing Paper Grace followers were so thrilled when the first 3D Vignettes with word inserts came out. Over time, our followers have asked for a greater variety of words to fit into the 3D Vignette apertures. Your wish is our command!

Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection

The Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection is made up of 7 different die sets and a stamp set. Most sets contain a sentiment and a filigree background layer. Each set makes it quite easy to produce a complete card. The bonus is the sentiment shapes each match an existing 3D Vignette. Along with being able to complete a card, the new sentiments will allow another sentiment to existing 3D Vignettes already in your stash. Romantic Chargeour works with all the sentiments.

Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection also contains an “inside” sentiment set that matches the thought on the outside of the card. To top off the collection we’ve included Petite Floral Potpourri. It’s a compilation of all the small flowers and leaves that are most requested by our community.

My Projects for Today

For my projects I’m using the Amazing Paper Grace Heartfelt Thanks Vignette Etched Dies from Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection by Becca Feeken decorated with some pretty flowers made with the gorgeous flowers from the Amazing Paper Grace Petite Floral Potpourri Etched Dies from Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection by Becca Feeken.

I love how you can mix and match Amazing Paper Grace dies to create beautiful cards. Here I have used the Amazing Paper Grace Annabelle’s Trousseau Layering Frame Medium Etched Dies Chantilly Paper Lace Collection by Becca Feeken as a background to the Amazing Paper Grace Heartfelt Thanks Vignette Etched Dies from Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection by Becca Feeken. To finish I have added the Amazing Paper Grace Elegant Twist Ovals Etched Dies from the Elegant Twist Collection by Becca Feeken to frame the sentiment.

I have used Amazing Paper Grace Petite Floral Potpourri Etched Dies from Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection by Becca Feeken to create some wisterias to finish the card. The leaves are from the Amazing Paper Grace Sweet Cottage Flowers Etched Dies 3D Vignette Mini Album Collection by Becca Feeken. There will be a tutorial on how I have made these flowers on the Amazing Paper Grace – Encouragement Group on Facebook here.

Designers Tip:

Have fun mixing and matching Amazing Paper Grace dies to create flowers to create your cards..

Amazing Paper Grace August Die of the Month Blog Hop – Lattice Petal Foldover Birthday Card

It’s a square card front! It’s an envelope! It’s both!! In the transformers world of dies, we love for our dies to be used in many different ways. This die was designed to function as both a card front and for the petals to fold over to enclose a notecard. The pretty lattice filigree is just the icing on top. Welcome to your stash, the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for August 2021 – Lattice Petal Foldover.

You asked and we listened. Our May 2020 Die of the Month was so popular that we made a slightly smaller, dainty version. Becca said that the inspiration for this die set is all about the Note Card. As someone who loves to drop a little notecard into lunch boxes, drop them into packages, and even leaves them on the door for delivery people – this is quick and easy. Die-cut 10 of the lattice petal jackets and 10 of the 3″ (or 3×6 for a folded note) notes for inside and you’ll always be ready with a stunning note.

Here are some ideas that will inspire you to create with the foldover elements:
1. A box with the foldover as the lid
2. Notecards (there is even a closure piece)
3. A sweet, petite basket

Dies for my creations today were supplied by Amazing Paper Grace.

There are 14 dies included in the Lattice Petal Foldover.

My Project Today using Lattice Petal Foldover.

Pink, gold and white with handcrafted flowers are the perfect combination in this card. I have added dimension to the outer lattice die with some fun foam and then added the inner decorative die over gold card. The sentiment is hot foiled using the birthday sentiment from the Spellbinders Mini Everyday Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set from Simply Perfect Collection.

The alstraemeria flowers have been created using the Amazing Paper Grace Grand Cinch and Go Flowers Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken and the filler flowers are from the Amazing Paper Grace Petite Floral Potpourri Etched Dies from Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection by Becca Feeken.

There is a tutorial on how to make these flowers on the Amazing Paper Grace – Encouragement Group here.

Designer Tip:  

Add dimension to the dies using foam tape or foam.
