Judy Hayes for www.amazingpapergrace.com
Hi there friends, I’m back from my journey.  On my last post here (which incidentally was right before leaving for AFCI – Association for Creative Industries), I mentioned that I would begin sharing picture of 3D Vignettes with 12 Days of Inspiration.  Little did I know that the demoing and walking and hustle/bustle schedule of that event would absolutely wear me out.  In the early days, many of you said you didn’t know how I could create so much.  Well the back story to that is that I stayed up all night and rarely slept.  Fast forward 9 years and this old gal shuts down late at night – the will is there but the energy says tomorrow.  No worries, we have a lot of catching up to do.

In the meantime,  I have a lot to share today – an announcement – a new creative team member with a project  and new inspiration from the creative team.  Without further ado, let me introduce our newest Creative Team Member, Judy Hayes, who is sharing her first project above.

Judy Hayes for www.amazingpapergrace.com
Judy is one of those people who inspects a die up and down, looking for it’s strengths and hidden beauty, then she transforms it into something so unexpected and delightfully unique.   Her projects are magnificent and include the gamut from cards to off the page items using ordinary dies, papers and tools.  She inspires us all to think outside the box as we marvel over where she gets her ideas.  Just last week a group was squealing while looking at one of her projects – a 3d house where she had used photo corners for the shingles on the roof.  I just shook my head and said, that’s Judy!!  I’m so tickled about the announcement – here’s a little bit about her!

A New Announcement - APG Creative Team Member - Judy Hayes

I’m Judy Hayes.  My husband and I live on the prairie of rural southwestern Minnesota where I’m often inspired by nature and the peace, quiet and beauty of the surrounding countryside.  I love spending time with my 3 grown children and 4 grandchildren!  I have been crafting forever, it seems!  From sewing and needlework to paper crafting and jewelry making, soldering and metal embossing, book making and even woodcrafts, I’ve tried them all.  Thanks to my mom for her creativity with sewing and always being able to see possibilities in any piece of fabric.  If I saw a shirt or skirt that I liked, she could always figure out how to sew it!  From that, I learned to try to make things for myself!  I really enjoy mixed media projects, especially when I can include metal or fabric and textiles.  My greatest joy comes from stretching the limits of tools and basic supplies to create something unique and out of the ordinary! 

I am tremendously honored to be on Becca’s Creative Team! She is an amazing designer and very special person!   I was blessed to get to know her while I was on the Spellbinders Design Team (along with Teresa).  So grateful for this opportunity!

For Judy’s card today, here’s how she described putting it together.  This is a 4 x 5″ canvas painted with chalk paint.  The verse (Penny Black) is stamped and clear embossed on tissue paper and layered into the wet paint. I used Cinch and Go Flowers, Annabelle’s Trousseau Layering Frame (cut to fit canvas), and Vintage Elegance Tiny Tags.  Pearl cotton threaded through the frame is accented with tiny pearls.  I colored the tiny flowers with markers.  Two tiny tags at edge hide cut in frame (tags were cut to fit as well).

But that’s not all; there’s more inspiration to share.  The Creative Team has been busy with Amazing Paper Grace Dies!!

    Congratulations to Judy for joining the Amazing Paper Grace team. Love your card design. Looking forward to more of your designs including multi-media elements. Becca, I can relate to the will of doing but the body says tomorrow. I am finding tasks I used to do so readily now takes me twice as long and I only get half as much done. No one said growing older is easy. Now when I get something done, I tell myself: “good job”.ReplyCancel

I hope, through re-creating the projects featured, I will gain some of the special perspective of all the designers’ and apply it to my unique creations.ReplyCancel

    Hi, Becca,
    Can I ever relate to challenges with having enough time! I have been on some deadlines lately and “burning the midnight oil” to get projects done. My body tells me loud and clear that this is NOT okay.

    I can tell Judy is going to be a great addition to your team. This card is so gorgeous – I love the color, the weaving of the thread through the frame and use of the Vintage Elegance tiny tags, which made such great accents.

    You ARE busy…introducing 2 collections and adding a Creative Team Member. Can’t wait to see what you have in store for us.

    Love & blessings,
    SandyReplyCancel

Rounded Bottom Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Lunette Arched Borders and Spelbinders Tallulah Frill Layering Frame - for full supply list see ww.amazingpapergrace/?p=33306
Hi there friends, I’ve been creating like a mad woman!  This week I’ll start sharing pictures of 3D Vignettes with 12 Days of Inspiration here on the blog – I hope you’ll join me.  In the mean time, today I’m taking a teensy little break to share a card that has been waiting in the wings for a while.   Never having done a round bottom on a card, I think it’s really quite unique – looking forward to trying more.  I actually had to shave the bottom a tiny bit so that it would sit level instead of rolling over.   Lunette Arched Borders gives me the round bottom and I reached another Amazing Paper Grace dies – Tallulah Frill for the border at the top and for the embellishment of the sentiment panel :-)

Rounded Bottom Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Lunette Arched Borders and Spelbinders Tallulah Frill Layering Frame - for full supply list see ww.amazingpapergrace/?p=33306

The easiest way to get your card base is to cut an 8.5″x 11″ sheet in half so that you know have 5.5″x 8.5″.  Then diecut Lunette Borders onto the bottom of both panels.  Score one panel for a fold that is 1″ in and fold.  Lastly, trim the panels to be even at the top and adhere along the top.

I get the double borders on the rounded bottom  simply because I added a curved panel on top of my card base. Its a simple card, really and I like the look the repetition gives.

  • Charlotte ZweigoronFebruary 2, 2018 - 4:48 pm

    Always the best..!! The crafting world is so huge and yet so small. I met a lady today demoing at a stamp show. As she did her demo and we chatted, we found that the person who really inspired us to do paper crafting many years ago and who continued to greatly inspire us… well, no need to guess… it’s YOU! There was an immediate kinship with that one connection and it went on from there. Thanks for it all, Becca.ReplyCancel

How about another sneak peek?  A tiny peek :-) ……………so there is a reason I’m working on ‘Romantic’, I love Romantic!  I love romantic enough that I centered an entire collection around a romantic feel.  In April of 2018 I’ll be introducing a collection called “Romancing the Swirl” to you.  It’s a collection of romantic calligraphic swirls and swashes with clean lines in dies.  This is my go to style.

It felt wonderful the get elbow deep in designing curls and swirls and connecting them to elements worthy of using in decoration and card making.  It will be a welcome addition to and matches very well with Amazing Paper Grace dies by Spellbinders Paper Arts.  The main die is called Sweetheart Swirl. It is embellished with Hemstitch Circles and the border is made from an element in Ringlet Round.  Shipping to retailers in April 2018, they will embellish what’s already in your stash :-)

    What an exciting time for you, dear Becca!
    Based on the name alone, I knew I would love this collection. In calligraphy, flourishes are fun and fancy. No wonder all these swirls appeal to me so much. We won’t have these in time for Valentine’s Day but they’ll be great for summertime weddings…or just about anything else!
    I think you were so clever to use part of the hemstitch rectangle to anchor that lovely top border and the vellum underneath. The bottom border of the vellum is so sweet, too.
    Thank you so much for the sneak peek. I’m really excited about all your new dies!!!

    Absolutely so perfect for ‘Our’ Special Valentine’s Day coming up! For you see, I met my sweet husband of almost fourteen years ago on February 14, in 2004 and we were married June 26th, 2004 :).

    I still remember him standing there with a huge Sony floppy disk camera around his neck (Which was never used that day :)), the dozen chocolate roses. (He had told me he had hunted everywhere in the airport for Real roses and could only find the chocolate ones) and the first words I said to him *blushing* “Shut up and kiss me!”

    My Hero did not arrive at SEA-TAC with a white Stallion or shiny armor like a knight, but rather in a borrowed vehicle with a silent air of being struck with awe like he could not believe that I was real (Let me tell you, I am no prize, except for the fact I have survived many traumas meant to destroy me and yet I say it is all God and not me. That and I have the heart the size of Texas even with being abused so many times.).

    Even after all these years I still see him like the Angel of God that he was and can be. He has given me memories of such happiness and bliss that cannot compare to what I was forced to leave behind for my safety. He is a very humble bashful man and that endearing quality can sometimes be angelic or it can play the devil’s advocate pushing me beyond my own boundaries of comfort and stretching me, growing me to new things and in a good way.

    Thank you Darlin’ {{{hugz}}}

    Here is to a Blessed New Year of Adventure to us all!ReplyCancel

    Beautiful….
    I am on a very tight budget this year… I’m trying my hardest to sit on my hands and to utilise what I have here. You are making it sooooo hard… my wish list is growing already. I’ve been asked to make 2 wedding cards, to be posted to the US later in the year… thanks for the inspiration you share. XxReplyCancel

    Hi Becca,
    Still waiting for our house to sell and mad at myself for packing all of my card making supplies. However, this card is worthy of digging through the boxes and finding those supplies in order to pass the time while it snows.

    This card reminds me of Homecoming! The die-cut on top resembles a crown and the way you placed the ribbon cluster on the edge reminds me of a corsage. Very romantic! Love all of your new die cuts and card designs. Boy are you busy!
    Hugs,
    SaraReplyCancel
