Hello Gracelets!!  As you know, each month I have the pleasure of introducing a new Die of the Month.  It’s absolutely my therapy to play with this die and present it in several fashions over the course of the month.  This month the die is one that is capable of so many different arrangements because I’ve given you four motifs to work with. Welcome the Amazing Paper Grace September 2020 Die of the Month Lattice Quadrante.  I almost named it Lattice Pie but you know me, the elegant name won out :-)

Inspiration for Lattice Quadrante

So often when cutting a die, I wish I had two motifs so that I could mirror and cut the same motif at the top and the bottom.  This desire is the inspiration for this month’s Die of the Month, Lattice Quadrante.  I’ve given you four motifs that translate into countless configurations.  It just so happens if you use all four motifs, you actually come out with a rounded central element and I’ve given you a rim so that it can be completely cut out.  It’s just as easy to use two of the motifs and the partial rim to get the shaping at the top and at the bottom.  With those pieces, I could immediately count about five different styles of cards.

Here is a short video that shows all the pieces to the die set and how to put them together if not making a round motif:

Pretty much no month is complete until I’ve tried to make a box with the die of the month.  I love the box this month because it is so simple and the beautiful lattice makes the color come through.  Here the box is 2-3/4″ on each side and about 4 inches high.  I topped it off with a little spray of silk roses.

I think I’m taken with the ability to set up this motif as a “V”.  Because four motifs are supplied, it’s soooo easy to cut two at once for a lovely vertical mirrored panel.  I’ve always wanted to do this!  I’ve always done tall cards and they are so popular right now – this definitely scratches the itch to go vertical.  For this arrangement, I created a custom envelope using scoreboard but it could have been easily done with my We R Memories Envelope Maker as well.

I also created a set of pocket cards.  These are perfect for invitations, or if you have a lot to say!!  The Lattice Quadrante pattern is used to make “Peek a Boo”  V shape in a paper panel so that it shows front and center and gives you an idea that there is text inside for you to pull out.

This format of the pocket card was oooh so easy to make.  Simply cut one motif into a panel and glue the panel onto the front of the card, making a pocket.  I finished it off with a cardstock band on the front and glued the same band inside.  This card is 6″ x 6″

I don’t know about you, but once I find something I like, I make many.  This was such an easy roll to get into and made me look in my stash for beautiful design paper.  I couldn’t resist decorating up another pocket card.

 

We’ll be bringing you more inspiration on ways to use the sweet pieces to this set, this month!  In fact, join us here tomorrow (September 2nd, 2020) when me and several of the Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team show you the interactive Christmas Cards we’ll be making for Christmas this year.  post-header-bottomSweet friends, August was an amazing month even though life was spent mostly in isolation.  I had the pleasure of working behind the scenes with new members of my creative team as well as the previous members who have stayed on.  In addition, this month I’ve had the opportunity to have Zoom calls with friends and with family.  It all really feeds my heart to have that connectivity to people.

Thank you!

I think for me, staying in touch is the key to staying happy.  That all leads me to say that popping in here every month is a continuing part of my well being.  I love it that after so long, I can still look at and read amazing comments and say hello back to each of you.  Thank you!  I know that it’s hard to get around to blogs but I do so treasure the long time readers that have been here and eagerly look forward to when you weigh in every month.  I hope that as our journey continues, you are well and happy too!

Thanks so much for stopping by, see you soon!!

    Just wanted to say hello and tell you how much I have enjoyed staying in touch with you. I am a very long time fan, since well before John passed away. I wonder how many years it has been . I remember when I first found your blog and couldn’t believe how beautiful your cards were. You were the very first person to inspire me to go beyond and outside the box. We both have been through quite a few ups and downs over the years, even though we have never met I still think of you as a friend and I do believe someday we will meet when we pass from this earth to be with our Heavenly Father and to walk with Jesus. May you be wonderfully blessed my sister in Christ.

Hi there sweet friends.  Today we are introducing a mini collection around a friendly Halloween Theme.  This is my very first venture into Halloween and it’s nice to create a little bit of whimsy.  Create some BOOtiful creations with a new collection from Amazing Paper Grace – The Halloween Collection.  It’s super SPOOKY cute!

The Halloween Collection Details
This Halloween Collection includes three thin metal die sets They can be used separately or mix and match with each set in the collection. It goes especially well with the popular Charming Cottage Box Die Set as you will see while hopping through.  The inspiration for the set was indeed the Charming Cottage.  I simply wanted something to bundle up goodies to deliver during the holidays.  Since the Cottage is so easy to put together, these add-on sets are a great way to extend the life of a die in your stash!

The Halloween Collection sets used!

I’m introducing Amazing Paper Grace S4-1069 – Nested Clipped Squares by Spellbinders.  It’s a great year around shape and you will notice that by utter coincidence it also fits with Amazing Paper Grace  S5-422 Rosa Diamante, which I have also used on my card.

My Project for Today:

For my project today using the Nested Clipped Squares I went for a vintage Halloween look with blacks, reds, and vintage type.  Of course, it had to be a teeny bit elegant.  I die cut Rosa Diamante and layered it up with the Nested Clipped Squares and finished off the with Hey Boo die cut words from Amazing Paper Grace S3-405 Spooky Boo by Spellbinders.

WR-Supplies

Stamps:   None

Paper:   Bazzill, The Timeless Type Stack – DCWV

Ink: None

Accessories:  The Halloween Collection from Amazing Paper Grace by Becca Feeken

3D Vignette Phone Details

We’ve spent all month making funny phone jokes and puns!  Do you realize this little relic is something that most teenyboppers haven’t seen in person?  Just as with the typewriter, the phone is an iconic part of our history and technology.  Ever evolving, this phone will always be a part of our coming of age.  During the month we played “I Spy” to peek into how folks were using this die and this is what we found:

  1. A shaker card
  2. A notepad holder
  3. A mini 4-page scrapbook (which will hold Instax pictures)
  4. A gift card holder
  5. A card with multiple sentiments
  6. A basket

We’re sure there are more, but in the meantime, here is some additional inspiration to pique your creativity.

My Project Today using 3D Vignette Telephone

My project today takes minutes.  For my project I decided to take one of the many sketch books I have and create a Phone Book.  Yes, even though I keep my phone contacts in my phone digitally, I love having a place (a backup) where I have manually written down numbers.  Plus I don’t want every number in my phone – just the important ones.  In my manual phone book I’ll put my favorite dry cleaner, some of my stores, etc.

To make, I simply die cut a phone and applied it to printed acetate.  I did it that way because I wanted the beauty of the linen book to shine through.  I put my die cut phone on the sketch book with foam adhesive.

Designer Tip:   When working with fabric and clear acetate, it’s a-okay to use a line adhesive like ScorTape to adhere acetate to fabric.
