Amazing Paper Grace June Die of the Month Blog Hop - Snip It Grid


Are you ready for another versatile Snip It Grid Die?

As a member of the Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team, I receive free product for use in my projects. 

Hello Gracelets!!  We are so tickled to share our inspiration for the newest Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for June 2020 - A2 Snip It Grid and Calendar Creator.  In fact, since Our earlier Snip It Die was a hit and Becca decided to give you another option with lots of extras!  All of us on the Creative Team want to show you our take on how to use it.

Snip It Grid Extras

The extras added on to this die set make it a wonderful value.  In addition to the grid, you get an entire lower case alphabet plus enough of the upper case alphabet to do Day of Week abbreviations and Months.  If you are already a Member of the Die of the Month Club then you might be tickled to know that this lower case alphabet matches the Upper Case alphabet from October 2019 Die of the Month - One Kind Word (still available).  

We kicked around how we might use the die and here's what we came up with:
  1. Background
  2. Large Frame
  3. Double Frame with two apertures
  4. Calendar
  5. Snip out the cross pieces and make a lined background
  6. Shaker Card
  7. Weaving
  8. Crossword Puzzle
Okay, okay, you get the idea!  But we want you to know that this transforms and gives you so many unique options.


Here are the dies included in the set:

Introducing Elegant Twist Blog Hop | Amazing Paper Grace


Elegant Twist Die Collection by Amazing Paper Grace
It's time to introduce another new collection from Amazing Paper Grace. Whether your handmade cards are made up of detailed die-cuts or clean and simple die-cuts, we all have something in common - we love to start with a base shape. 

As a member of the Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team, I receive free product for use in my projects. 

The newest Classic Die Collection from Amazing Paper Grace is Elegant Twist. It is a classic set of Rectangles, Squares, Circles, and Ovals with a curvy elongated bordering pattern that reminds us of the undulating pattern of a rope and that's where it gets its name. Elegant Twist gives you an elegant twisted border base shape to either stamp on or layer on.

Inspiration for Elegant Twist
We're tickled about this unique rope inspired pattern. Moreover, it is romantic and draws the eye toward the center of the design. Or do you see something more masculine or nautical?  Beyond what meets the eye, Elegant Twist has a twist! By simply placing two of the same designs back to back, you get a lovely criss-cross pattern! 

Elegant Twist is designed to layer or pair with the other classic finishes in the Hemstitch Classic Collection and the Candlewick Classic Collection. The Elegant Twist set features 7 dies that allow you to have either a frame or a filled-in bordered design. All in all, the Elegant Twist Collection is something different to give your cards or panels a unique flair.

Fill pockets of photos or messages inside your project that will bring joy as your friends and family open up thier card! Almost like a mini albulm but without all the work!
Our Crafters Say:
Y'all have made me feel like I can do cards with flowers that look like a million bucks but yet they are so very easy to do. And people can't believe they are handmade! Thank you for all that you all do. -Jennifer Hickerson
I just LOVE LOVE  Heartfelt Creations products!!!! Heartfelt Creations has brought my scrapbooking and card making to a whole new level!! -Barbara Bell
Let's get crafting!
Directions: 
Step 1: Stamp the Large Wild Rose Cling Stamp Set onto the Art Foam Paper with Ranger Archival Ink Pad - Red Geranium and die cut the flowers with the coordinating dies. Colour the flowers with Ranger Archival Ink Pad - Pink Peony and Rose Madder.
Use 3 petals for each flower. Use your heat gun to heat the petals and when they start to shrink move them on the Molding Mat and press on the middle using one of the larger flower shaping tools,
 
Layer the petals together using a hot glue gun making sure to offset them. Add your stamens by piercing a hole in the centre of the flowers.
 
TOP TIP: Add hot glue to the underside of the flower to adhere your flowers in place.
 
Next, sponge the petals with dries clear adhesive and sprinkle with Crystal Ultrafine Transparent Glitter and Rajni Chawla's Crystal Clear glitter.
 
For more tips on creating with the foam paper & stamens, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/Oma6ctVmUD0.
Step 2: Stamp the leaves using the Large Wild Rose Cling Stamp Set onto Deluxue Flower Shaping Paper with Memento Dye Ink Pad - Bamboo Leaves. Die cut the leaves with the coordinating die, shade using the same ink and Bamboo Leaves ink. Shape using the Large Wild Rose Mold.
Step 3: Create card/album using Pocket and Flipfold Inserts F-WhiteCut three pieces of paper paper from Wild Rose Paper Collection 4 1/2 x 8 3/8" to cover the front and inside of the card. Cut paper to cover the pocket inserts. Remember to first cut off excess paper from the pocket inserts: cut one inch off second insert, cut two inches off third insert. Don’t forget to cut the slits in the designer paper for the pockets. Watch this video to see how to decorate the flipfold inserts and cut the slits https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKpGdatTbmk.
Either fold tabs back and adhere a piece of white cardstock 4 1/2 x 8 3/8” to the back of the flipfold insert or cut the flaps off and then adhere cardstock to finish the back of the card.
Top Tip: only add glue to edges of the cardstock to keep the pockets open.
Step 4: Cut decorative pockets from white cardstock 5 times and 1 from gold paper using Regal Pocket Accents Die. Using corner die, cut 5 pieces from gold paper and one from white paper.
Step 5: Glue the Regal Pocket Accents diecuts to your card/album and add pictures.
Step 6: Decorate the cover with Regal Pocket Accents diecuts, flowers and leaves. Add some Bright Bead Stamens-Medium around your flowers for interest.
