I love cardmaking! I am so thrilled with how this handmade greeting card turned out. It has lots of lovely paper lace, plus pretty flowers, plus papers by Basic Grey ~ right there, that’s 3 of my very favorite things. I posted a detailed list of supplies you’d need to make this card, plus instructions too. Please click here to view the project instructions for this greeting card with paper lace. Enjoy!

No, these aren’t CHA sneak peeks, sorry. Haha, I am almost glad they aren’t. I could spend a lot of time elaborating about how frustrated I get seeing “sneek peaks” for things that I won’t be able to buy for weeks / months…but that’s not really the point of this blog post. These are actually sneek peaks for project ideas I have been working on, all of which incorporate paper lace that you can make using Fiskars punches.
I think you’ll be happy to know that these are actually “Use up your stash” type projects using supplies that aren’t brand new. Well, except for the Bella Flora Mini Stamp Set by Inque Boutique, which are new enough that you might not have them yet. I had a hard time finding them- every store I could find that even carries them was “out of stock”. I am really excited to finally have mine! SO WELL WORTH the $4 or so to get this mini stamp set! Seriously! I am LOVING THIS SET! It is incredibly versatile, and just perfect to use with all my gorgeous patterned papers from Basic Grey, Making Memories, and Autumn Leaves.
Well, I hope you enjoy the sneak peeks! Thanks for taking a look.
I just wanted to give you all the “heads up” that 2peas has some really pretty Creative Cafe stickers on sale for 50% off. The stickers include scalloped lacy borders, rickrack style borders, and small tag stickers. The sticker sheet measures 12 inches by 12 inches, so if you want to use these on a 12×12 scrapbooking layout they will work great; or if you scrap a smaller size you can cut them and get even more mileage out of the sheet of stickers. Scalloped edges are so pretty and so HOT right now- so it’s fantastic to see a bargain on such a trendy look. Original price: $3.50, Sale Price: $1.75. I have no idea how long these will be on sale or how soon they will sell out. Prices subject to change! There are lots more coordinating Creative Cafe items available too, some of which are on sale and some are not. You can see a variety of Creative Cafe items for sale if you click here.
Have you seen the new “Flirt” line of scrapbooking papers and embellishments by Reminisce? If not, well, that’s the Flirt line you see pictured above. If you ask me, the highlights of the line are the 2 scalloped die cut papers. One of them is a red heart shimmer paper with a lacy scalloped glitter edge. How pretty is that?! Can’t you just think of all kinds of creative things to do with it? Of course, with Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I am sure you can think of a million ways to use this pretty paper ~ Valentine’s day scrapbook pages and Valentine’s day projects immediately come to mind, but you could use them for any romantic theme- anniversary, wedding, “I love you”, prom, etc. I just LOVE this paper!
The pink scalloped paper is even more versatile. You could definitely use it for Valentine’s Day- just look at all those cute funky hearts along the decorative lacy scalloped edge. BUT I don’t think you really need to limit this paper to just using for Valentine’s Day, because it would be great for spring and summery scrapbook pages & layouts, or for any project that requires a pretty pink paper.
Rhonna Farrer is truly an inspiration. She has one – of – a – kind style, and her designs for scrapbooking supplies are some of my all-time favorites. She is known for fancy, intricate, feminine designs which often include flourishes, lacy effects, scalloped edges and pretty “girly” touches. Rhonna is also a pioneer in the area of design for digital scrapbooking.
One thing that I am really excited about is her new digital designs for Valentines! These are so versatile. You can use them for making your own Valentine’s Day greeting cards, or for use in your scrapbooking layouts or altered art. Shown at left is Rhonna’s digital Valentine gift packaging kit, which you can use for a variety of purposes including but not limited to creating custom giftwrap for your presents. The other photos in this blog post show some of her brand new designs plus some of her classic favorites. She also has digital brush kits, tool kits, and other digi goodies available, so if you are a digi whiz there are plenty of options.
The best part: a LOT of these digital scrapbooking kits are on sale right now! Rhonna Farrer’s digi scrapbooking kits, brush kits, and tool sets (plus lots of her papers, transparencies, brads, and other scrapbooking supplies) are available for sale at twopeasinabucket.
