Simply Saturday, I love lace…


I love lace and lace cardstock is no exception. When I purchase it, I make sure that I use every little scrap as it is not cheap paper that is for sure. When I first found out that my new Silhouette Digital Craft Cutter would cut out lace cardstock…I was beyond thrilled. Of course, I purchased some files right away and had to try it out. Now I can create my own lace paper in any color or pattern I wish. How cool is that? Look at the precision cutting. It looks just like the real thing. Here’s a couple simple projects to share with you today.

Let’s Party Lace Card design


I just couldn’t bear to cover up more of this simple card highlighting the pretty paper. I cut out some Black Magic Coredinations paper using a floral  backgroud template (Flowers Multi Square). I just love the texture and I carefully sanded away the edges to reveal the light purple inner core.

Supply List: kraft cardstock by Prism, Black Magic Cardstock by Coredinations, template & Silhouette by Quickutz, flowers by Prima, button, journaling paper and tag by Making Memories

Quick Tip: You can design your own lace in Photoshop or simply purchase a downloadable template from QuicKutz for these projects.

Clean and Modern Frame


My daughter went crazy over this beautiful white cardstock I cut out with the Squares Open Square download. To play up on the crisp retro look, I kept the design super simple. It’s adhered to some cardstock to match her room and then I added a simple flower and rhinestone embellishment to finish it off. She’s thrilled.

These projects were part of a review I wrote for Craft Critique on the QuicKutz Silhouette.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a simply wonderful day!

  1. Oh My! The card is so pretty! I love that black flower cut out. Very pretty with just a touch of embellishing.
    And the white squares on the scrap page is really nice, too.

  2. Love the lacy purple and black combo on your card Julia. Your daughter is very pretty too!

  3. Wow. These are great! The framed picture is so fresh and hip right now. I love the purple on the card – a color we don’t often see you use, but it one of my favorites.

  4. Wow – great designs! I am totally jealous regarding your paper cutter…so many possibilities. Thanks for sharing and inspiring!

  5. very pretty projects!

  6. These are GORGEOUS! I had no idea the Silhouette could cut like this. Now I’m going to have to reconsider my decision to not buy one. The picture frame is fantastic…fresh, colorful and innovative. TFS!

  7. I just love the lace paper you’ve made. Now how many pages of that would I have to cut to be able to justify purchasing a Silhouette? 🙂

  8. simple design but nice please do not send me back anything princess
