3D Depth and Dimension are the order of the day!  Hi there, today we are sharing with you a great new Amazing Paper Grace collection with a blog hop featuring Shadowbox Vignettes.  It is a followup to my favorite 3D Vignettes Collection and at the core of the collection are a set of Shadowbox Frames that will allow you to make a frame any size you can furnish the paper for.  These frames sport a face that is 1/2″, 3/4″ or 1″

Whether you are hanging your kids’ artwork on the fridge with a lightweight frame changed out every season or if you are sending your glorious dimensional cards is a frame with a lid – there are so many ways to use these Shadowbox Vignettes dies.  In fact, we think they are a great addition to your crafting toolbox.  If you’ve looked at the die and cannot quite imagine how it goes together, well never fear, there is a video for that and I’ll show it at the end of my post.  The video has extra 3D inspired projects not seen here, so be sure to have a peek or even fast forward to the end.

About 3D Shadowbox Vignettes

Layered Die sets were introduced with 3D Vignettes and people quickly realized you could use them standing alone in cards or you could use them layered together in a diorama.  Shadowbox Vignettes continues the tradition and as you might guess, the layering sets can be used in both Shadowbox Vignettes and 3D Vignettes.  In addition to the 3 core adjustable frames and the four layering sets, I designed a host of embellishments sized to fit your frames as well as your standalone cards.  I’m particularly tickled by the easel (necessary to stand a shadowbox frame on a desk) that also transforms into a pocket or a basket.

My Projects For Today.

Introducing Shadowbox Vignettes by Amazing Paper Grace for Spellbinders - featuring Adjustable 1/2", 3/4" and 1" Frames for detail see www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=34590

This is the 1/2″ frame.  It is 1/2″ on the face and I’ve cut it into a 5″ x 7″ frame for a card.

This is the 3/4″ frame.  It is 3/4″ on the face and I’ve cut it into a 5″ x 7″ frame for a card.
S4-980 – Adjustable Shadowbox Frame with 3/4″ Border

Introducing Shadowbox Vignettes by Amazing Paper Grace for Spellbinders - featuring Adjustable 1/2", 3/4" and 1" Frames for detail see www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=34590

This is the 1″ frame.  It is 1″ on the face and I’ve cut it into a 5″ x 7″ frame for a card.
S4-981 – Adjustable Shadowbox Frame with 1″ Border

I wanted to make the same card using each of the frames so that you can see the difference.  I’d love to share how I’ve been using them in my daily crafting.  The 1/2″ frame is perfect for small shallow boxes – to hold a small picture, as an accenting border on a card.    The 3/4″ frame is great for pictures and for highlight depth, especially in layering scenes.  The 1″ frame is great for 12×12 scrapbook pages, refrigerator art and for making 3D items.  No one frame is limited – I’ve used each frame for every idea I’ve given here.  Here’s what the dies look like:

What I like best about the frames is that they can be made to any size – 5 x 7, 4.25 x 5.5, 12 x 12, it’s up to you.  All of my frames today are 5 x 7 because that’s the size card I normally make.

The 1″ frame is always cut from a 4″ strip of paper and then the edging dies cut the paper for the proper miters and fit.
The 3/4″ frame is always cut from a 3″ strip of paper and then the edging dies cut the paper for the proper miters and fit.
The 1/2″ frame is always cut from a 2-1/8″ strip of paper and then the edging dies cut the paper for the proper miters and fit.

Each leg of the frame is cut to match the dimension you want – for instance a 5 x 7 inch frame will have two legs that are 5″ and two legs that are 7″.  There are two matching bookend (left and right) dies in each set.  You cut two with the straight edge and two with the tabbed edge for 4 to make the 4 legs of the frame.  I encourage you to watch the video.  It will all make sense, I promise!

Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for February 2019 - Enchantment Tall Flip and Gatefold Card - Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using this Spellbinders Die can be found at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p= 34574
Hi sweet friends – where did the last month go?  I’m back with another die of the Month and looking forward to a busy February!!  This month I am sharing – a die called Enchantment Tall Flip and Gatefold Card, it’s the Amazing Paper Grace February 2019 Die of the Month.

P.S.  Let me share this before I forget — The Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team and I will be introducing you to Shadowbox Vignettes in a Blog Hop on Monday, February 4th at 9:00am right here!  Many of you have been asking when this collection is coming and I’ll share all the deets!

Inspiration for this Month’s Die

I love a die that can transform and do different things.  In December I introduced a square gatefold card that could easily be parlayed into a gift basket for an ensemble look.  For February, I’m introducing a tall 5 x 7 rendition of that kind of die.  My initial thoughts were to make a Gatefold Card, use it for a Card Background, make a Basket, and cut out the pattern for candle wraps.  I know there are many more ideas that but I was loving where it was all going!

I made a video to show you how easy it is to to make a basket:

For my first project I created an easy to make card using the complete die set (minus inner rims) for a background.  With this die I can pick and omit which dies to use for a different look because there are 6 different inlays that can be used inside the card.

Here I have made an easy gatefold card by combining two panels.

This is my favorite project with the die – and that is to use the folded panel as basket handles.  This makes the cutest basket ever – perfect for candies or pencils or even to deliver a batch of cookies!

And there you have it!!  Pop over to the Spellbinders Blog to ——>THIS POST <——– to have a look at many more pictures of the Enchantment Tall Flip and Gatefold Die.  If you are already a member or have purchased any of the Die of the Month Dies, I hope you’ll leave a review of the die on the Club Page.  If you like the direction I’m going with these dies, please leave a comment on the Spellbinders Blog Post so that I can continue to create in the same vein.  As always, if you have a constructive comment on how the dies work for you, please leave it – I read all of these and we discuss them as I plan additional designs.

    Just wanted to comment on how much I love the way you do your demonstration videos. No unnecessary background talking and straight to the point. I wish everyone who posted would post there videos in the same manner. It seems I almost always have to go into at least 5 mins into the video before I actually get to the demonstration . I don’t mind the spoken instruction , it is just the needless chit chat that people tend to do before they actually get to the point. You always do just right in your demonstrations. I really appreciate that. Love this new die and the cards and the project turned out beautifully. Blue is my favorite color (for this month anyway) LOL… This is definitely another hit. Hope things are falling into place as you are getting back to normal after the storm damage. (what ever normal is) LOL … Have a wonderful day . God bless…Denice with a “c”ReplyCancel

Amazing Paper Grace January 2018 Die of the Month - see full supply list at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=34546

Good morning!!  Every month, we love bringing you inspiration for the Die of the Month; today is our Die of the Month Blog Hop!!   My lovely Creative Team has shown up with some surprising and stunning inspiration on how to use this die – I hope you will click through to each blog – they have really blown this challenge out of the water.  This month we have the most elegant of elegant dies that are designed to allow you to cut the die then slip a card into position.

The Lacework Finery Slip-In Card Die has a tiara-like motif that can be used with the corner pieces or without.  If you are looking for a subdued card, why not use the corner pieces only?  All of the pieces are inlaid, you can use them alone or together to get the look you want.

If you are new to our blogs, the Die of the Month is an exclusive die I designed for Spellbinders – it is called the Lacework Finery Slip-In Card Die. This particular set has 10 dies and they can be used to make a background, a slip-in card, or a frame with decorative corners, while the individual dies in the set can be used for many things.  Oh, and to make the set complete, I’ve included flowers!  A gentle reminder, it is available beginning January until the limited supply is gone.

My Card Today:

My card today is a simple card, in fact the simplest.  I designed the die so that from this set you can simply get an elegant frame — to highlight a sentiment — to slip in a picture  — to add reserved corners to anything you want to highlight.

Curious how to make the card?  It’s simple –

Run the large rectangle die along with two corner dies (one inlay in each corner) through your die cut machine.  Remove paper from die and turn paper 180 degrees.  Reseat paper into die and run through again.  This will give you two filigree corners on each end!  Easy!

    Your card today is simple yet elegant – and gorgeous as always. Unfortunately only one of your design team – Ewelina – has the die of the month blog published at the moment (beautiful projects). I will revisit tomorrow. Best wishes

      Sorry about that Doreen, I’m traveling and jumped the gun an hour early. Their lovely posts are up now :-)ReplyCancel

      • Crafty CruiserJanuary 19, 2019 - 10:46 am

        It’s I who should be apologing Becca! I didn’t intend it as a criticism but merely an observation and probably shouldn’t even have mentioned it. We in the UK have the advantage of being several hours ahead of the US. I’ve now seen all that your design team have created with this fabulous die and they are all gorgeous and a real credit to you. Best wishes

  • Marjorie ShannenJanuary 22, 2019 - 2:20 am

    Becca I went to sign up for the die of the month as I think this set is the best ever and I was looking forward to making beautiful cards with it . However when I went to the pay part on the spellbinders site it quotes $30 for the die set and $64 for the postage so a total of $94 Australian dollars. I can not pay such a ridiculous price for postage so sadly I can not join the club. Is there any other way I can purchase the die set. Sadly I do not know anyone in US who could get it for me. I am so disappointed as I had my heart set on owning the set.
    Congratulations on the fantastic job you have done creating the beautiful set.ReplyCancel
