Topic: Paper Lace For Sale

New Paper Lace Products, Scrapbooking Kits, and More


Hello everyone! Just a quick update with some fun new things I’ve noticed while browsing around the scrapbooking stores. I just created a whole new page on the Paper lace web site dedicated to Art Warehouse’s brand new die cut papers. I think they almost resemble paper lace doilies, but they are definitely intended to be scrapbook paper. Check ‘em out!


Also, twopeasinabucket.com has a brand new kit up for sale. There isn’t any actual paper lace in it that I could see, but there is at least one very pretty die cut scalloped paper that is to die for. Plus plenty of other goodies too. This kit is quite a bit more affordable than their last couple of kits have been, at only $30. I expect they will probably sell out fast, so if you are interested, please be sure to get there ASAP and stake your claim to one!


Speaking of twopeasinabucket.com, they have a HUGE amount of tempting stuff on sale right now, with plenty of bargain prices and deep discounts. Plus they have a whole lot of brand new stuff, too. One of the brand new products I am most excited about is the new glitter lace cardstock by KI Memories. I haven’t had a chance to update my Lace Cardstock page to include it yet, but I just put that on my to-do list. For now if you want to see the new glitter lace cardstock, you can just click through and take a look at it on the twopeasinabucket.com web site.


Thanks so much for dropping by! Hope you are having a great week.

Scrapbooking Layout: Orchid Photos With Paper Lace and Primrose Patterned Paper From the Fleuriste Line by Cosmo Cricket

Scrapbooking Layout of Orchids and Flowers. The Layout Features Patterned Paper by Cosmo Cricket plus Photography, Paper Lace and Hand Painting by Amy Solovay.


Here’s another sneak peek of a lovely paper lace that you will learn to make if you keep reading this web site for more installments of my Free Paper Lace Idea Book. This particular layout was a lot of fun to make, and it is very simple! I love scrapping with the “Fleuriste” line of patterned papers by Cosmo Cricket. They are a no-brainer to use; they are so versatile that you’d be hard-pressed to find photos that don’t work well with them. (As usual, excluding your husband’s hunting/fishing/ football layouts, that is.)


In this layout I created almost all my own embellishments (except for the brads, which are made by Accent Depot.) See the tiny paper flowers that are attached on either side of the paper lace border? I made those from Cosmo Cricket’s Hey Sugar Honey Honey paper. They were super easy to make; all I did was use Fiskars Mini Scallop Paper Edgers to cut around a few of the flower motifs from the patterned paper; then I attached a mini-brad in the center.


Here’s a photo of the “Hey Sugar Honey” Cosmo Cricket paper I used to create the flower embellishments:

And then here’s a photo of the embellishments before I attached them to the layout (you can click the photo to get an larger picture and take a closer look at them.)

So, you might be looking at that “embellishment” (for lack of a better word?) that is positioned under the lower left hand flower photo. It’s another one that I made. I made it out of one of my old business cards (I am into recycling!) that I hand painted. Then for another project I wanted to have multicolored punches so I punched out a bunch of small circles and squares. I thought that the punched-out painting looked cool all by itself, but I couldn’t think of a use for it right then. So back in my stash it went. Well, when I was scrapping these pics today looking through my stash I pulled it out and used it. Love doing stuff like that! I have found that if you make a bunch of embellishments from time to time, and you organize them well, you will never be at a loss for things to put on your layouts.


Materials and Supplies



Patterned Paper is
“Primrose”
from the Fleuriste Collection by Cosmo Cricket.
The brads are by Accent Depot.


Additional Techniques Used:



Paper cutting, punching, collage, inking, painting


How To Make The Paper Lace


The techniques for making the paper lace shown on this layout will be covered in detail in my Paper Lace Idea Book. The introduction, chapter one, and part of chapter 2 are already online, so you can get started learning how to make paper lace. So far I have posted the basic information that you will need to get started. Detailed instructions for the paper lace border that you see in this layout have not been posted yet, but more instructions will be posted soon. I invite you to follow my blog for more updates about when the next chapters of the book will be posted.


About This Scrapbook Layout:



This layout features another group of 3 photos of orchids and flowers that I took at the Arboretum in Arcadia, California. I already posted another scrapbooking layout with orchid photos that were taken around this time period.


Thanks so much for dropping by! I sincerely appreciate your interest in my work.

Scrapbooking Layout With Paper Lace: Peacocks at the Arboretum in Arcadia, California



Here’s another scrapbooking layout I created using paper lace. The photos show a gorgeous peacock that I encountered at the Arboretum in Arcadia, California. Peacocks roam free throughout the Arboretum, and seeing them is sheer delight! They are so beautiful!


Materials and Supplies



The background patterned paper is
“Get Happy: Pop” by Cosmo Cricket.
The round epoxy sticker at the top of the layout is from the Narratives Honeydew Collection by Creative Imaginations/ Karen Russell. The other papers are hand-painted and hand stamped by me. The stamp is a one of a kind Indian Woodblock / batik block that I got on ebay. I actually have several of them. Here is a photo of them.



These are so much fun to use. They are different in some ways than using a clear stamp or rubber stamp- but it’s basically the same stamping process for the most part. There is a lot of creative potential for using these. I originally bought them because I used to teach textile and surface design to fashion design majors and I wanted my students to be able to try out authentic Indian batik blocks during our classes. Well, they did, and you would not believe the results! Each and every one of them was able to make these wood block stamps look completely and totally different. It was mind boggling!

Making the Paper Lace:


This paper lace was made using The Fiskars Hearts Border Punch. I don’t have instructions posted yet for making this particular paper lace, but it is very similar to some of the paper laces I have already posted on the site. Also take a look at this page about the Fiskars Sunburst Border punch and this page about the Fiskars Threading Water border punch because the idea is similar. And then of course keep checking this blog for more updates to my Free Paper Lace Idea Book, where I will be sharing step-by-step instructions for the paper laces and projects you see on this site.


Note: If you do decide to make this paper lace, try to cut straighter than I did! But, if you mess up, don’t worry. The craft police are NOT going to come after you.
