At first glance, it looks like a background die; it is anything but a background die.  It was designed so that each of the flowers can be snipped out to create a panel, frame or element.  Whether you want the 4 x 4 frame, the 3 x 4 frame, a one layer border, a two-layer border or a corner, all you have to do is “snip”.  Each one of us has taken the die and spun it into a creation – we hope to inspire!!

My Project Today:

I had an opportunity to create about 16 samples for the Die of the Month, so today I thought I would show you one of my favorites.  It’s one of the simplest ones but it really speaks to my heart.  It’s the full background using each of the flowers layered up with the additional pieces.  Because of the spacing, it’s very easy to insert a sentiment that says it all.  I suppose there’s a special place in my heart because it has all of my favorite things!  It has dimension, texture, a pretty sentiment and most of all, because it leaves room for a bow!!  This one is on the simple side, but every once in a while that’s exactly what you need.

Supply List:

Stamps: Spellbinders STP-005 Clear Words
Paper:  Neenah Classic Crest – Natural White – 80lb smooth, Coredinations – Concerto

Amazing Paper Grace September 2019 Die of the Month by Spellbinders - Snip-It Flowers - learn about this die at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=35317
Hello September!!!  Along with the heavenly feel that autumn is coming, I have the distinct pleasure of ushering in another Die of the Month.  This month I’m introducing the September Die of the Month Snip-It Flowers – a new Amazing Paper Grace concept.   This is a die that can whittled down for any size card!  I designed it so that pieces of it can be snipped to give you all of the following:

Frames and Backgrounds
4 x 4 background with flower centers
4 x 4 frame with flower centers
3 x 4 background with flower centers
3 x 4 frame with flower centers
3 x 3 background with flower centers
3 x 3 frame with flower centers
2 x 2 background with flower centers

Borders and Corners
1 column border with flower centers
2 column border with flower centers
3 column border with flower centers
3 Flower wide corners with flower centers
4 Flower wide corners with flower centers
Big flower corner pocket with flower centers
Every Combination above with no flower centers –  for a different look!!

If you want to see these more than 12 possibilities rolled into actual do-able cards, there is a Snip-It PDF  ——> DOWNLOAD IT HERE.

Furthermore, on September 5th the Creative Team will be tickled to show their makes with the die!

 

Inspiration for Snip-It Flowers

I get notes from crafters all the time who want a certain size die – some ask for A2, some ask for A7, some ask for specific sizes.  Snip-It Flowers grew out of the desire to accommodate all while making a budget-friendly die that you can use in so many ways.  As a result, this is a big die, a small die, a detailed die and a clean and simple die – all in one. By the way, I stopped counting at 16 different ways to Snip-It.  I think this is going to become a staple in my stash but would love to hear how you’ll use it.

Snip-It Flowers Samples

When I made the first 16 samples using this die, I thought I had covered all of the possibilities, but not so.  Afterward, new projects kept popping in my head.  We have all month to show you, but in the meantime, I’m showing one quick card and box today.  This is a 15-minute project and will easily get you out of a bind when you need a card and a gift.

The cards above is covered in the video and shows you how easy it is to “snip” to get the frame.

For the picture above, I’m showing my favorite two adaptations.  One is a full background and the second is a two column border that gave me room to use a sweet Quietfire Design sentiment – Floral Banner and Quote.   So flexible, I could have as easily but that border on the bottom and had the sentiment float along the top.  My mind is still working on possibilities.

Well, that’s my shares for you with the September 2019 Die of the Month!  Pop over to the Spellbinders Blog to ——>THIS POST <——– to have a look at many more pictures of Snip-It Flowers.  As always, over on the Spellbinders Blog, there are many cool projects that I’ve not shown here.

If you have purchased any of the Die of the Month Dies, I hope you’ll leave a review.  Just pop over to the Die of the month page.

 

If there is something you’d particularly like to see as a Die of the Month or a type of die that you don’t like, pop up to the comments tab of the blog and leave me a private note.  There’s a whole team of people who debate these dies every month and we critique if we’re giving you the best value and most unique combinations on the market.  Yes, it is that important!  For that reason, I’m always keen to hear your feedback :-)post-header-bottom

Take care dear friends!!  Remember to take a moment for “you” to craft – it brings out the best in us all and is good, good medicine.

  • MaryH.September 1, 2019 - 6:14 pm

    How dainty and gorgeous this die is. In my mind I picture a wonderful tea party using this design – place mats with your box filled with tea bags at each setting and tea lights at the center of the table. All using this beautiful, flexible die. And don’t for get to wrap that napkin with a single strand placing a Candlewick Rosebud atop the band. Thanks for the inspiration, Becca!ReplyCancel

Yep, easy- peasy fabulousness for healing hearts. And, inspiration for more elaborate efforts later.) Oh, I love, love, love being a Gracelet – a blessing every month!

Hi there crafty friends!  We are poised at the beginning of another month and as you may know, we’ve started to invite fellow designers to blog along with us.  Today, I’m thrilled to be introducing a new Guest Designer to the Amazing Paper Grace Blog.  She has a crisp clean style that you have no doubt come across on the internet and her placements and embellishments are always spot on.   Please help me welcome September 2019 Guest Designer – Sheri Holt.

Sheri wowed us last month by creating two amazing projects with the Amazing Paper Grace August Die of the Month for Spellbinders.  She was already signed up to be our Guest Designer for September but I can’t resist a quick peek back to show you what she made at the top of this post.  You will see that Sheri uses design paper splendidly throughout her projects – her take on the August Die of the Month was delightful!!   During the month please be sure to take a peek at her blog every week of September for a new creation using Amazing Paper Grace dies.

For the calendar:  Don’t forget, tomorrow I’ll show you inspiration for the new September Die of the Month – it’s like a swiss army knife – a million ways to use it.  If you are looking for the winners of the giveaway post, scroll down to the bottom of the post.
Amazing Paper Grace Guest Designer - Shari Holt.

.

Hello Amazing Paper Grace Fans! My name is Sheri Holt and I live in northeastern Oklahoma in a large suburb just outside of Tulsa with my husband where I was born and raised. I’m an empty-nester with a blended family of four adult sons and one granddaughter.

By day I am a programmer/developer at a custom box and printing company but at night you might find me adding a few vocals in my husband’s classic rock band. We love to travel as much as time allows but on the weekends I try to spend as much time as possible in my  craft room. I guess I’ve always been creative, because of the programming and singing, but I didn’t really start crafting or cardmaking until about 2011 when I fell in love with stamping and die cutting.

In my cardmaking, I usually have a very clean and crisp style because I don’t like to get too messy. I have met so many talented people on my crafting journey and feel very fortunate to be asked to Guest Design for Becca this month.

For her first creation for APG September Guest Designer, Sheri used the Grand Holiday Cabinet and adorned it with flowers and bows!  Take a look!
