Good morning! Did you know that cardmaking doesn’t always have to be a grand production? True. I’m working on not always having to have the bomb diggity card to send, especially if it is going to hold me up or keep me from getting the card in the mail. These are two minute sweeties made with my Mini Card/Booklet die that simply use one insert, some vellum, some ribbon and a paper rose for a 4.25″ x 3.25″ cutie. That’s it. Plus, it was a mini craft session that made me feel as good as when a churn out a hand full of cards. I won’t be tempted just to write my note on a plain piece of paper – I decided to do a little die cutting and maybe when the box arrives I’ll get a little ‘oooh’ :-)
Hey, also today we have a little round of up some projects created by the Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team. Wow, Tuesdays come so quickly and again this week everyone has contributed their take on their favorite Amazing Paper Grace Dies. I hope you can take a second to breeze on through!
These are so simple and airy :-)

Here’s More Inspiration from Venice Lace!!
Joanna Krogulec (above) crafted two cards with her signature flowers. They give the card such a dimensional look, take up a fair amount of real estate and bring multiple colors into the equation. She has used Marcheline Plume on her first card along with Isadora Trinkets for the flowers. For her second card, she took the large lace motif from Isadora Trinkets and mirrored it on four corners to make a background.
Melissa Bove (above) used her vintage pagers to create a sweet and shabby card using Marcheline Plume then created a lovely gift box using the Mini Booklet/Mini Card Gift Box where she uses Francesca Label as a sweet tag.
Kristi Schurr (above) wields some lovely design paper and a luscious silk ribbon in a card using Marcheline Plume. The birds are such a pretty focal point – she used Graceful Tiny Tags to add a small sentiment to keep the focus on her pretty papers.
Thank you so much for breezing by today – I really appreciate it! Hope you found a couple of hints to kickstart some beauty in your day!
