Designer Showcase: Lace

Welcome to another Designer Showcase Wednesday! Today we have the theme of lace.  This always brings out the really pretty side of projects.  The ones that you can really drool over. So let's get to them!

Marlene is the creator behind this gorgeous masterpiece.  She used some lace that she loosely pleated across the top of her photo. Looks very much like the parasol in the photos, doesn't it? She also placed a little lace peaking out from under the matting.  Marlene also used some border punches to create lacy edges using patterned papers. One of the papers is actually a lace print.  A very creative way to add the look of lace to your page, even if you don't have actual lace.

The corner cluster on this page that Sarah created is adorned with lace. She used it as a base accent on her matting to highlight the flowers. Sarah also used some crocheted lace to tie a pretty bow in the corner of her cluster. It is such a beautiful addition to the page. It reflects the details of the brides dress and adds some vintage charm to the design.

I love this idea on Cindy's page. She created a wide border behind her photo using lace.  You could do this using a wide lace, or use 2 pieces of a narrower lace covered by a strip of paper.  The lace adds just a touch of elegance to Cindy's lovely page.

Cindy and I had a laugh that neither of us gets to work with lace very often  Living with guys, lace is not a "go to" embellishment for most of our scrap pages. But I do like to use lace on projects and gifts that I create.  This is a paper gift box that I made. I thought the lace was a nice touch to add texture to the box.
