Another month has come to an end and we say goodbye to another Guest Designer on the Amazing Paper Grace Blog.

But first, I wanted to step back through some glorious arrangements put together by Gloria Stengel.   All month we held our breath to see what she would come out with next and everything was absolutely show-stopping.   She is an expert with color and design paper and coaxing the best out of each.  It’s so hard to explain but as you waltz through her makes, you’ll see exactly what I mean.

 

Stay tuned to the end of the post for our most recent blog hop winners.

Elegant Inspiration by Gloria Stengel

Gloria’s mini-album using 3D Vignette Mini Albums was simply superb –  you can see all of her die picks at this link – HERE!

She used:

S4-1028 Woven Trellis Side Pocket
S4-1031 Decorative Edges and Spines
S6-164 Grand Crested Tower
S5-409 Universal Accordion Fold Spine
S4-1027 Double Halo Oval

Another card cleverly woven with just the right colors and some amazing design paper!

She used S4-1027 Double Halo Oval

I love how she picked a sweet vignette from her design paper and showcased it on her card.  If you look closely you’ll see she used:

S4-1027 Double Halo Oval
S5-401 Candlewick Lace Card Front

Last, but certainly not least, this beauty was created with the Lace Front Die and the colors are spectacular!

S5-402 – Candlewick Lace Card Front

As you know I was tickled to attend AFCI (CHA) in January in Phoenix to reveal all of my upcoming dies.  It was an exciting time as always and then I caught the flu.  It has really had me sidelined but hopefully, I’ll be back to 100% soon.   In the meantime, let me share our newest die winners.  You have two weeks to get your selections and addresses to me through the contact tab at the top of the page.  Please remember it may take up to eight weeks to receive your dies :-) You may pick any of the  Becca’s Die of the Month. offerings here, except February 2020.

Introducing 3D Vignette Mini Albums by Becca Feeken to get links and see supplies go to www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=35795
3D Vignettes were introduced almost 2 years ago and along the journey, our readers have begged us not to abandon the concept but to keep adding on.  As always, your wish is our command!  Introducing 3D Vignette Mini-Albums.   When the first 3D Vignettes came out, we fashioned them into mini albums using the familiar side piece and slots but now we’ve made it permanent with a Universal Hinge.  Plus we’ve added a whole collection of dies you can use inside the mini-album including two new shaped card profiles and a new Cinch and Go Cottage Bloom Flower that can be used as a dimensional flower or a flat flower inside the mini-album.  Stay tuned as you see a mini-album from each Creative Team Member and card that highlights one of the dies used in the mini-album.

About 3D-Vignette Mini Albums

When the response to the first 3D Vignette cards turned into mini albums blog hop brought such a positive response, readers asked for more.  So I designed an easy to fold Universal Hinge that makes it easy to convert your 3D Vignette cards into  Mini Albums.  I tried to stay true to my mix and match budget sensibility, of course, so all of the elements of this new collection can be used to make flat cards, can be used with original 3D Vignette designs, and older 3D Vignette dies can be refreshed and used with the mini-albums.

Best of all, if you have ever been too overwhelmed to create a mini-album or a scrapbook page, take heart.  Since your choices are mix and match, we’ve taken all of the guess work out.  The small format is card-sized which makes it doable for those of you accustomed to working on a small card size project.  We’ve made albums that are tiny up to 6 x 6″ and 8 x 8″.

The beautiful mini albums were showing today are held together with this wonderful die

S5-409 Universal Accordian Fold Spine

Our projects today are embellished with my newest Cinch and Go Flower

S4-1045 Sweet Cottage Blooms.  It is designed to work up as a dimensional flower and as a flat flower that fits into the albums

S5-409 Universal Accordian Fold Spine

My Projects For Today

For my project today I made a sweet with mini-album that includes most of the dies from the collection.  I filled it with pockets and places that you can tuck things.

    You started the vignettes and inserts about the same time I started making cards – and I adore the addition of the mini albums.

Thanks for your creations and hope this year provides us more along these lines. What a wonderful talent you have!!ReplyCancel

  • MaryH.January 22, 2020 - 3:25 pm

    I continue to be excited about the vignette dies and look forward to more inserts and accent dies. I went out and purchased the mini album dies right away and made my first album. Your dies certainly made it easy and the recipient loved the album! Would love more of the flower dies too.ReplyCancel

Who doesn’t smile when they get flowers.  Today we’re giving you a way to present a bouquet to whomever your heart desires.  The January Die of the Month is a Pop Up 3D Vignette Bouquet .  It’s one of those show stopper pieces that folds down flat to fit into an envelope but it’s right at home living on a desk.

Even if 3D is not your thing, these beauties can also be used on flat cards and just in time for Valentine’s Day.  A bouquet of flowers or a bouquet of hearts – what’s your sweetheart getting this year?   Your panel can be decorative, textured or simply a sentiment.Today I’m sharing one of the many bouquets I made.  It’s always so fun to see how they pop up and how the colors play together.  I picture those same stems in a mason jar or in a flat paper sleeved bouquet on a flat card.
