Hello Gracelets!! We are so tickled to share our inspiration for the newest Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for June 2020 – A2 Snip It Grid and Calendar Creator. The Snip It Flowers Die from the September 2019 Die of the Month was quite popular so I decided to give you another option with lots of extras! All of us on the Creative Team want to show you our take on how to use it.

Snip It Grid Extras
The extras added on to this die set make it a wonderful value. In addition to the grid, you get an entire lower case alphabet plus enough of the upper case alphabet to do Day of Week abbreviations and Months. If you are already a Member of the Die of the Month Club then you might be tickled to know that this lower case alphabet matches the Upper Case alphabet from October 2019 Die of the Month – One Kind Word (still available). We kicked around how we might use the die and here’s what we came up with:
- Large Frame
- Double Frame with two apertures
- Snip out the cross pieces and make a lined background
- Shaker Card
- Weaving (I’ll be sharing this card with you tomorrow :-)
Okay, okay, you get the idea! But we want you to know that this transforms and gives you so many unique options.
Today I’m showing you a double frame. I simply snipped out the middle and found two sentiments that worked together and voila!! This arrangement gives me a double aperture and I really like the look, it’s quite unique for a saying you split up, or two. I decorated with pearls and added some flirty little butterflies – they seriously make me smile. Also for the first time I’m using double bows, they are simply nestled next to each other. I’ll be doing that much more in the future!!
Tip: I glued the frame down to design paper before snipping out the middle. That gave me something substantial to work with!!
