Ooh la la... Lace!

Happy Wednesday! The challenge this week at Papercraft Star is Lace! 

Check out this beautiful photo to spark some inspiration....

So Pretty! I just love lace!! 

For my project this week, I used the Romantic Lace 098 digi sheet from The House Across The Bay. I did alter it a bit by printing the digi sheet in Sepia! There are so many ways to use digital images which makes them so much fun to play with. 

I cut around the lace applique looking piece, from the digi sheet, to create a label for my sentiment. I used a neutral color palette and added lace, crochet lace, seam binding and a vintage button for a softer look.

I am so addicted to using my sewing machine on scrap projects right now, so I had to do some sewing! I also finished the inside by adding a strip of brown pattern paper with some lace.

I hope you enjoyed my post today. Remember to post your entries on the Papercraft Star blog by 6am EST on Monday October 3rd for your chance to win prizes from our sponsor The House Across The Bay

This is just beautiful, Regan! I so love lace, too, and I could eat up that inspiration photo. I want those bags! :) Love your wide band of lace here and love that you mixed it with the crochet lace and seam binding. Layered over the dark cardstock, the whole combination is so eye catching. Great use of the digi image, too. That was such a great tip to print in sepia for a whole new look.

So delicate and sweet Regan. :-) Very inventive use of the digis. Guess I don't have to tell you that sewing on your cards is highly addictive. LOL

Regan, I love how you did the digi in a sepia and cut around it. Makes such a pretty sentiment stand out even more. Love the soft and feminine look this card has!
