Introducing the Amazing Paper Grace Picot Petite Collection

Amazing Paper Grace has gone back to her roots with classic sewing inspired motifs! Introducing the Picot Petite Collection!

Becca Feeken sent over these lovely dies for me to try.

Over time we've had lace-inspired designs and have loved the feel of Hemstitching and Candlewicking. Reminiscent of needlework and treasured handwork proudly displayed, Becca Feeken has developed another classic line of layering shapes that feel so much like tatting or picot crochet.  As you might imagine, these shapes are crisp, clean, and timeless. Whether you are simply adding a classic layer to a card or cutting an aperture to highlight a lovely sentiment - these shapes mix and match with other sewing inspired motifs as well as intricate backdrops.

Today you're in luck! Our Creative Team is sharing makes from the Picot Petite Collection.

Classic Shapes are Timeless

With each Classic Collection, Amazing Paper Grace creates the most popular die-cutting shapes in oval, round, square, and rectangles. Moreover, these classic shapes mix and match with Hemstitch Classics, Candlewick Classics, Elegant Twist Classics, and now Picot Petit.

The Inspiration behind Picot Petite

If you've ever seen tatting, the little loop produced along the edge is called a "picot".  It's this little loop that is the basis for the border on all of the Petite Picot shapes.  They are lovely as a backdrop for any other layerings as the little picot peeks out.  It's just a subtle way to bring in the ways of classic needlework to give texture and dimension to the backdrop of our cards.

Each of our Creative Team members will show you their take on cards made with a classic picot flair.

My Projects For Today

First up is  S5-432 Amazing Paper Grace Picot Petite Squares Amazing Paper Grace S-5 432 Picot Petite Squares

Here is what the dies look like:  

I create a set of box and tags using the dies to cover the front and back of the box, I also use the die as focal point for my tags.

These dies have so many possibilities I also create a mini house box and cover all of it with the die, love how it looks on the roof.

Here is the Spellbinders video showing amazing new samples as well as a walkthrough of the entire collection.

You have a very creative mind and that house is so winsome. I would love to borrow you mind for a few minutes so I could create such makes. I love the pompom trim on the tags! Wrapping and tagging gifts for Christmas just got easier!
