It's always an exciting time when Sara releases a brand new Sara Signature Collection, but we have to admit, we were pretty excited about this one! The Vintage Lace Collection is all about bringing a sense of nostalgia into your papercrafting by injecting a little bit of classic charm and lace-inspired motifs into your stash.
But we know how it is when a huge range gets launched. The amount of pretty new products can be daunting and sometimes, you just need a bit of guidance when it comes to inspiring projects that feature these products. Because of this, we've decided to share a few bits of inspo to get your Vintage Lace cogs turning!
Take a look through this blog post to see a selection of images and ideas to get you started with this captivating collection, and make sure you show us how you put your products to good use!
One of the most exciting elements in the Vintage Lace Collection is the Flower Forming Foam, which extends our current selection of shades and stamens. With it, you'll be able to create 3D flower details in lilac, purple and light blue that can be added to cards and gift tags for extra texture and to create focal points.
We absolutely love the card above, which features closed cup, pastel flowers and striking purple peonies, adding a beautiful 3D element to the corner.
As well as the Flower Forming Foam, there's also a fantastic selection of dies available, which can produce a variety of crisp, cut details for your papercraft projects. To add even more life to your foam flowers, why not use the Kaleidoscope of Butterflies Dies and slightly raise the wings of the die-cut pieces? You can also create the most perfect base to mat and layer on to with the Rococo Frames Dies. With different frames to choose from, there'll be at least one that's perfect for your project.
Our dies have been designed to bring you the most crisp embellishments possible, so you can rely on them to cut your images with precision and accuracy!
If embossing is your thing, you're going to love the Provence Cut & Emboss Folder! This folder features a beautifully ornate frame with embossed details combined with a die-cut centre and corners. This makes it perfect for framing photos, creating shaker cards or designing peekaboo cards. It's so versatile and beautiful!
We absolutely love the card above that has been designed to have the central frame peeking through to the sentiment behind. It gives the card a bit more depth, whilst still being simplistic and subtle.
For even more of a rustic look, you can pair up the Vintage Lace tools with the paper pad, which has been specifically designed to give you that classic antique look with minimal effort. We really love the look of the peeled up edges and torn areas of this card because it just adds an even more weathered look. Paired up with the black and white photo, this is a design that is ideal for capturing a timeless image.
With all of these products included in the range, it's so easy to create cohesive projects that every recipient will love. Whether you're putting Vintage Lace to good use in cardmaking, scrapbooking, gift wrapping or even multi media projects, we just know you're going to be head over heels!
