APG January 2019 Die of the Month – Lace Finery

Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for January 2019 - Lace Finery - Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using this Spellbinders Die can be found at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p= 34520
Hi sweet friends – what comes once a month and has me antsy all month long?  Another Die of the Month, that’s what.  This month I am sharing – a die called Lace Finery Slip In Card, it’s the Amazing Paper Grace January 2019 Die of the Month.

(Note:  Thank you friends if you have answered my Questionnaire this week – the contact forms are rolling in and what you are telling me is music to my ears!  If you have not visited my blog lately, I have a special request at the end of my post).

Inspiration for this Month’s Die

I kind of found myself looking for a different kind of challenge that would allow me to design many things with one die.  Many of you had written asking me to release some premier dies on a slow schedule so they could be purchased one by one.  Well, that’s the Die of the Month program.  Do not worry if it is not in your budget – that happens.  I still have other dies and collections – but this one allows you to get multifunctional dies that are classic and should be in style for some time to come.  I get this question all the time, so let me say they become available one at a time and when they are sold – they are not reordered.

The January “Lace Finery” Die is one of my favorites.  I can’t tell you how fun it was to put this together and dream of what you would do with it.   Believe me, I don’t have to go far to get to second and third favorite, but this one — this one is quintessentially me!  I wanted a die that you could cut apart and use the pieces — um, or not.  If you want nothing more than to have four tuck in corners for a frame to put a pretty picture in or sentiment – then this is your die.  If the princess look is right for the occasion then, this one can be configured that way.   I even combined two motifs to make one delicate card front motif.

I made a video to show you how easy it is to use the “slip in” feature:

Many years ago I did a questionnaire at the end of the year that I asked you to submit your answers through my contact form.  I’m doing that again because it gave me so much insight as to why you stop here.  I would be so honored to hear your thoughts – they will help me set my course for 2019.

Please submit through the contact form at the top right of the blog.  Answer all or answer any or just send a private note – here’s what I want to know….

How long have you been a reader?
What brings you back?
What do you miss most that I’ve moved away from?
Other than videos, what am I not doing that you would like to see me do?
Are you on Instagram – Yes or No

Do you have other crafts do you love?


Thank you for being there for me throughout the years.  I’m bowled over and touched by everyone who has responded to my request.  It may take me some time but I’ll read them.  So tickled to see so many familiar names.  I can’t wait to know more of you!!

    Good Morning sweet Becca, this is such a unique card. It truly represents your love for John and that you are willing to share that with us shows us all that we too can share with your magic touch. This die is both romantic and a show of great love.

    I love your dies, l am a China painter, love Heirloom sewing,embroidery, and scrapbooking. Just getting into making cards. Just bought a spillbinders die machinenad started collecting dies. This is all new to me. I joined the big die spillbinders club and received November and December dies. Would like to see or read more details on how to create and use the dies. I love your simple elegance. Now please show how to create more than one style on video, I really would like you to explain rather than music. Thank you ?ReplyCancel

  • Gloria SperringJanuary 2, 2019 - 9:45 pm

    I don’t have my dies yet, but this die set is stunningly beautiful. How do you come up with such beautiful designs? You are truly a gifted artisan. Any tips on how to use this die set without cutting my card stock in the wronge places? I’m afraid I will cut my cardstock in the wronge places. Then my card won’t be as beautiful as your’s. Thank you so much for all you share with us!ReplyCancel

    Becca, I just love everything that you design. Your cards were a huge inspiration in the direction that I took with my paper crafting, when I first began. I must’ve watched just about every one of your youtube tutorials!

    Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful talent with the world!

    How long have you been a reader? 3/4 years maybe more, I’ll check out the dies you’ve used in the past and see where I started following.
    What brings you back? I love your style, very feminine
    What do you miss most that I’ve moved away from? keep on doing what you are. Our styles are always changing which is good and its always good to stretch yourself on something new
    Other than videos, what am I not doing that you would like to see me do? all is good
    Are you on Instagram – Yes or No Yes
    Do you have a digital die cutter – Yes or No No
    Do you have other crafts do you love? Love all paper craft.ReplyCancel

  • Catherine GrahamJanuary 11, 2019 - 4:51 pm

    I’ve been a fan for several years ever since I saw your dies on the Spellbinders site. I always like how elegant your cards are and it gives me inspiration in my own projects.

    I do not have Intagram or Facebook but I do go online to read your blog as well as one or two others. Mostly I go to company websites to see the latest products or how to use products I own (which is a lot!)

    I own a Grand Caliber as well as a Crafter’s Companion Gemini. I die cut and punch the most. Mostly for cards as I don’t have too much right now to scrapbook.

    I would really like to see more of this site as a one stop shopping (buy dies here, see videos, blog, etc).

    Overall, I am very impressed with your talent as an artist. If I could be 1/2 as good, I would be proud.ReplyCancel

  • Audrey MillerJanuary 12, 2019 - 7:40 pm

    I made one of the cards…took me a couple of trys but I got it to work! Whew! My question is what size envelope do you use for the “Let’s be the Fairytale” card? Also, did you create the “Let’s be the Fairytale” and “Where there is great love…”? Will we be able to purchase them from Quietfire? Also, would love a link to the buttons that you use. I’ve looked and looked and am unable to locate any as beautiful as yours! Now, onto the “You are my happy place” card! Whoohoo!ReplyCancel

    Where do you get your sentiments from for your cards? Are they stamps or do you use a digital machine?ReplyCancel
