Amazing Paper Grace Guest Designer - June 2019 - Kathy Clement
It’s been a stellar month with our friend Kathy Clement. She graced us with her lovely creations as she joined us as the Amazing Paper Grace Guest Designer for June.

Kathy is a master at dimensional cards with layers and folds and her creations throughout the month brought so many unique new configurations.  Kathy rocked us using elements from the Vintage Treasures collection.  It’s lovely to see them all together to get a sense of the skill and love that went into every creation.

Kathy is the member of many leading design teams and has a blog with frequent postings and hosts a site that is packed to the top with inspiration.

Creating with Kathy Clement

Kathy shared with amazing folio with us that had so much dimension.

She followed up with this detailed easel card.  It has so many sweet surprises!

We were so tickled as Kathy shared a sweet tea folio that anyone would be thrilled to receive.

And finally, an adorned notepad with sweet decorations!  The design paper is phenomenal! A heartfelt thanks to Kathy for sharing her lovely creations during June and bringing us so many new ideas on how to use the dies.

Stay tuned as tomorrow on July first we welcome our July Guest Designer, and on July 2nd I introduce a new Die of the Month.  In the meantime, thank you for clicking in to see what we’re up to!

Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for June 2019 - Enchanting Batterburg Corners Die Set - Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using this Spellbinders Die can be found at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p= 35067
Hi there friends, today we are having a blog hop to give you some inspiration for the June Die of the Month.  I just love this die set, the design inspiration was Battenburg Lace and I thought it would be perfect to design it into a corner.   This set is called Enchanting Batterburg Corners.  Oh, and also the winner from last weeks blog hop is listed at the bottom of my post.

I’ve always gotten a lot of mileage out of corner dies and my mind immediately thought of a gazillion ways to use it.  I took the opportunity to make a “large” square card – it’s much like what my UK friends make but I’ve also seen large store bought cards this size.  This one is a belated graduation card and I’m tickled with how it turned out. This Quietfire Design sentiment from the Every Day is a Journey Set seems perfect for the occasion.   In addition to the sentiment inside, there is room to put a pocket the size of a dollar bill so that I can enclose money or a pocket the size of a credit card so that I can add a gift card.  I’ll do that once I decide.

My Project Today:

Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for June 2019 - Enchanting Batterburg Corners Die Set - Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using this Spellbinders Die can be found at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p= 35067

For this card, I cut four of the Battenburg pieces and trimmed the flaps to a scant 1/8″.  Then I taped them together by the flap.  It creates a beautiful square.  Then I took the small corner piece and a strip of 4″ paper and trimmed off the top using the upper rim and inlay.  I did the same on the bottom for a long centerpiece.  To finish off I cut the shadow of small corner piece from gold and layered it behind.
