So Much New Paper Lace!

Lace Patterned Designer Die Cut Scrapbook Paper Called Holey Cardstock by Creative Imaginations


Paper lace is really trendy right now, and I am really enjoying the process of discovering all the new die-cut papers and lace-paper effects that have recently been released. I can’t wait to get all these new products posted on this web site! I am working on a brand new page on the web site dedicated to Holey Cardstock by Samantha Walker for Creative Imaginations. It looks similar to KI Memories’ Lace Cardstock, but the patterns are different enough that I would be inclined to buy papers from both lines.


I recently added a new page to the web site dedicated to the Threading Water Border Punch by Fiskars. If you’ve spent a small fortune buying die-cut scrapbooking papers (like I have!), then this border punch is a must-have item, because it will allow you to create a scalloped lacy punched edge on almost any paper. I am so excited about that because I have been frustrated about the lack of availability of 6″ x 6″ papers with die cut scalloped / lacy edges. (I still wish some manufacturers would make a pad of 6″x 6″ die cut papers…please??? I’d be happy even if it were only the lower edge that is die cut, like the new Sassafrass Lass papers only smaller…) But anyway, until I get my wish, the Fiskars Threading Water Border Punch looks like exactly what I need. I think I could use it somewhere in pretty much every paper crafts project I do, with the possible exception of my husband’s extreme sports layouts- since I have been strictly forbidden to put ribbon or paper lace on his rock climbing / mountain biking/ dirt biking photos, hee hee. At any rate, extreme sports layouts aside, the punch is a versatile design with a lot of different applications; it’s a tool that I know I would get a lot of use out of.


I am still working on getting the next chapter of my Free Paper Lace Idea Book ready to post online, and that should hopefully be up within the next few days (if all goes according to plan.) I hope you’ll check back soon to see the next installment.


Thanks for dropping by- I hope you are having a fabulously interesting and creative day!

  3. Hi Jessica! Thanks for stopping by. I am not sure which punches you are referring to. If you are talking about the Fiskars Hand punches, I believe they would cut through thin foam easily. They are sturdy enough to cut through chipboard, so foam should be no problem as long as it is not too thick to fit in the punch. The border punches, I don’t think would punch foam very well, unless you were able to find a very thin foam. A thicker foam would probably not even fit in the punch.
