Happy March Everyone!  Spring is coming – soon, I hope!  In the meantime, it is time for another Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month! The March 2022 Die of the Month brings you Bella Ovalette.   If that name sounds mildly familiar, perhaps you remember Bella Diamante?  Yes, this is a companion die in a different shape.  The two of them will work well together and are fabulous on their own.  They create cohesive layering and as always include options for both large cards and small.

The Inspiration for Bella Ovalette

This month’s set comes with 12 dies.  As a designer, I love to program in rims so that you have options, lots of options.  For this set, you have the option to do a shadow layer that will allow you to make a shaped card and you also have inlay options with many of the pieces.

Please be sure to check out the video – I’ve created an open aperture top fold card and with a scaled-down motif for the focal point :-)

This is one of my favorite layouts to make.  I love three repeating elements – it creates such intrigue for the eye.  The sizing of the smaller motifs make them perfect for a venture like this.  Be sure to pop the layers up with foam tape to create shadows and drama when you look at it.  This is a 15 minute make!

Same motif, but paired down a bit!!  I used the large motif from Bella Ovalette and execute an easy alteration to make it the motif for this card.  I love it that you can see detail through the opening where you write your sentiment.  This one is a breeze to make the video will show you how, step by step.

Last but not least, this card is made to remind you of Bella Diamante.  It doesn’t get simpler than this – simply cut, layer, add a bow and sentiment.

Be sure to stop by on Friday, March 4th for our Blog Hop where the Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team and I will give you some ideas on layouts and accessories that can be made with Bella Ovalette.

That’s it for me today!  I hope you are inspired by the Amazing Paper Grace March 2022 Die of the Month!

It’s that time again!!!  Time to welcome a new Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month! This month brings you Marvelous Medallion.  After I started working with it, I have to say I was so pleased with how versatile it truly is.  It looks like a doily except there are two pieces – one thicker, one thinner and together they created a shadow layer not only on the outsides of the design but on the insides as well.  My samples include an A2 Card, a round card, and a gatefold card.  And of course, this combination also looks right at home in an A7 Card.

P.S.  Don’t forget to scroll down so that you can see the inside of the Gatefold Card!

The Inspiration for Marvelous Medallion

This month’s set comes with 13 dies.  To me, sentiments are such an important part of a card – they should bring home your message, loud and clear.  With this design, you essentially have a split doily or split medallion that allows you to lay in any sentiment you desire.  The banner shape can be filled with filigree or left solid.  Plus this is a thick banner that will allow a large sentiment or more than one.   As always, there was room for a little flower!  These are simple – cut two – arrange them in a cross — and voila, you have a flower.

More Inspiration for the Marvelous Medallion

Amazing Paper Grace February 2022 Die of the Month - Marvelous Medallion - detailed information at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=37836
This was my favorite card to make and so very easy! And it’s an A2! It gets a sweet delicate look from the ink that is swirled onto the edges in a graduated form.  If you can imagine, this card will accommodate any occasion – just change out the sentiment!

Amazing Paper Grace February 2022 Die of the Month - Marvelous Medallion - detailed information at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=37836
I used a small paper plate to trace two circles to cut for my card base.  A round card will not stand so I leveled it out a tiny bit at the bottom.  This gave me a unique new look in my tool box – one that I haven’t sported in a very long time.  Again, I brushed on ink around the edges for a powdery look.  I hope you’ll try!

I love me a gatefold card!!  Here I show you the inside and the outside.  Because this month’s die is a round shape that is split into two – it makes it the perfect bookends for not only the outside of a gatefold card, but the inside.  The decorative strip is just the cherry on top – it can be used in so many decorative ways.

    “Packs a big punch”, you can say that again! Your post set my imagination in motion and I can see the possibilities are endless! I love all these creations. Designing for A2 & A7 formats clearly shows your commitment to responding to the needs of every crafter but I appreciate the versatility considerations of your dies. My cards are usually the A7 size but time constraints sometimes make the A2 size the better choice. I love this collection – that decorative strip is brilliant!!!
    Love & blessings, SandyReplyCancel

Hi there sweet friends.  Throughout the year I introduce several small die collections.  They are broken down into a small handful of dies that are meant to work well together.  Today I’m going back to my roots – my very favorite die is a classic, romantic, die that can be used multiple ways on A2 or A7 card fronts.   I’m tickled to share the Classically Becca Collection.
