Introducing Dimensional Doilies Blog Hop | Amazing Paper Grace

Things are not always what they appear!  When you look at this die set, you may be hard-pressed to see what it becomes but that's why we're here - bring on the inspiration!  We're so tickled to be introducing a new and unique take on doilies.  Please welcome the Dimensional Doilies Collection.  Hop through with all of the Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team to get a small taste of inspiration as well as see how each has used these new motifs!

Inspiration for Dimensional Doilies

Some of the first dies ever to hit the market were doilies.  They gave you a symmetrical base to put your card elements on and they simply frame a creation and draw your eye inward.  By now you probably have many flavors of doilies in your stash.  These doilies are different. 

With one pass of the die, three identical motifs are created.  These motifs have perforations and slits on each edge.  When the perforations are folded and the slits are intersected, it creates a round doily of 6 to nine pieces that has a secondary filigree layer.  The texture, dimension and pure femininity they add to a card front is gorgeous.

My Project For Today:

I'm tickled to introduce S4-1060 Heart Melange Doily.

I made a card with Heart Melange and I used five shapes creating half of the circle.
Firstly I made a gold half with a white background and then I made a pink half. I put one on the other slightly offset it. The uniqueness of these doilies gives us an additional dimension.
I decorated my card with handmade flowers with APG Dies.
This collection is amazing and gives us enormous possibilities to create.

These plates are available right now on the Spellbinders website —–> HERE

Amazing Paper Grace April Die of the Month Blog Hop

The typewriter is a vintage icon of our civilization and our march towards print freedom and in recent years, a collector's item.  Far from being a relic of the past, Becca wanted to recreate a desktop version with a place to say what you want to say.  Isn't it cute?  Introducing Pop up 3D Vignette Typewriter.

It goes together just like all other 3D Vignettes, yet it is open at the top.  It still folds down flat so that you can mail it!  It comes with die-cut word inlays yet you can stamp your message on the front page or all the pages.

Here are the dies included in the set:

My Project Today:

This Die of the Month is absolutely amazing. I didn't expect such a beautiful dies set.
It is really easy to assemble despite it has so many elements. 
I decided to prepare a 3D project. I used pink and gold paper making gorgeous layers. I love it.

This 3d Vignette project can be laid flat and mailing to your relatives or friends.

My second project is a card. 
It is a completely different project and you can see how various creations we can make.

Supply List:
Stamps: none
Paper: ScrapBoys Pad Paper "Victorian Home", gold paper, Pretty In Pink,
Ink: Distress Ink Vintage Photo
Accessories: April Die of The Month, Prima Art Alchemy Wax Aged Brass
