Tuesday's {Tip} Got Lace?

I have had a terrible time finding lace. I know Ellen Hutson has some gorgeous lace but everything I wanted was out of stock. I finally found some wonderful lace at a great price on eBay. FancyLinda has a great store on eBay. She combined shipping for me, and my total shipping was only $1.90!! The lace arrived in a nice box, it was all wrapped in tissue paper, and the lace was wrapped nicely on cardboard secured with beautiful pins. Just look at this yumminess:
I was quite impressed. This lace is so beautiful in person. If I need lace again, I will definitely purchase from this eBay store again! So, if you are like me and you need lace, I thought this might be a supplier you want to check out! You can see her store here.

And TWO lucky blog readers will get to enjoy some of this lace along with a ribbon color of their choice! Just leave a comment here by tomorrow night (Wednesday, June 30th at 11:59 p.m. CST) telling me how you use lace on your creations. I will draw TWO winners and announce on Thursday! So, enjoy, submit those comments, and have a blessed Tuesday!

Dear Patter,

Thank you so much for the tips - I will definitely be checking your sources out as I am in need of some lace as well!

In the meantime thank you for the chance to win some beautiful lace from you - I hope I get lucky because my stock needs replenishing!

I have been using a lot of lace on my projects lately - I incorporate it into just about everything I can (it's just so pretty!)

If you stop by Create With Joy, you can see lace incorporated into my Blogorette Sorroity Sisters project and I have another lace project posting shortly!

Hugs

I've got several Build-a-Bear sets from SU! I'd like to put lace on the bottom of the girl bear's dress. Thanks for the opportunity to win some blog candy!

Jonia said...

What beautiful lace! I love to use lace when I get into the vintage side of my stampin. Need to do more of that after seeing this beautiful lace. Thanks for all you wonderful tips Patter.

That lace is beautiful! I need some lace! I don't use it cause I don't have any but would love to try it on my cards! I do use A LOT of ribbon so if I had lace I would try it too! Thanks for the chance to win! Love your site! Your beautiful cards and very useful tips on organizing are very helpful to me! Thanks for all you do!

Gorgeous lace! I can see it peeking out from under the main image panel. Or in several layered rows up from the bottom of the card. I can also see a flower made from it as a focal point.

Karen Hackney said...

Thank you so much for the lace!

My mother passed away just before christmas, and I am gathering things for her album - lots of vintage papers, laces etc. I haven't been able to find the lace I wanted, and now know where to get it!

April said...

Gorgeous! I'll definitely be checking her out...I adore lace. I've only used it a little bit so far on my creations but I'll definitely use it more once I get a good supply. ;)

I've used lace down the spine of cards.

JenMarie said...

Oh wow, this is so beautiful!!!
Gotta go check out her store for sure!
I love to use lace to 'soften' a card.

Rona said...

Thanks for the tip. I love lace and have used everything they carry at HL. I love a pretty feminine look on my cards and lace is staple I reach for over and over!!

Candace said...

Oh, how yummy! I just bookmarked her store. Sometimes I use lace on my cards instead of a ribbon.

Denise said...

Thank you for sharing this ebay link.

I have not used lace but after seeing the beautiful lace you purchased and some of the ideas shared - will definitely be using it.

Thanks again for sharing

Hi Patter, thanks for sharing the store on Ebay for lace. I love lace and use it on my cards on the bottom, top sides wherever it fits in my design. I have also used it on layouts on occasion....TFS

Beautiful Lace! I have used lace on scrapbook pages and on cards. Thanks for the chance to win.

Bonita said...

I am glad to see lace used on card as I have some that my mother had in her craft stash. But could always use more. Thanks.

Thank you so much for a chance to win some lovely lacy goodies. I haven't really used lace on projects, but have noticed a shabby chic trend that includes lace. I have been wanting to try, but just haven't gotten any lace yet. Thanks for the info on the ebay store. Thanks for your blog inspirations!!

Trudi said...

That lace is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing the info! I love using lace on cards to give a shabby vintage look and now that I'm scrapbooking again I can't wait to use some on some of my pages.

Flo - Sweetideas said...

Patter- I've been to her store and thought she had so many wonderful things. I'm watching some of them waiting for a time I need them . Love you blog, you give such great tips. Thanks. Flo

msfreida said...

Oh Patter, you ALWAYS have the GREATEST tips, and this one is no exception! Lace...one of my favorite playthings! I love vintage, and lace makes it so easy to capture that "estate" look! Whether it be on a layout or a card, you can always achieve a charming effect. I also love to use lace as a mask to design my own papers. Lace just offers endless inspiration! Thanks so much for the heads-up on this ebay seller...I will definitely be checking her out! :)

Hugs~

Darlene said...

I love to gather it around in a circle and put a flower in the center...so cute!!

Daisydaze said...

Thanks for the tip on finding some pretty lace. I have had a few pieces received in craft swaps; so, I have just mainly used ribbons. However, I love the lace for trims on cards, and also little gifties to go in hand made/trimmed bags. I really love the ones you have shown; they look like the tea stained pieces.

Rosemary said...

thanks for the tip! i will have to check her out. i haven't used lace alot on projects (only one and that was for an odbd challenge), but i love the look! thanks for the give away! have a blessed day!

Chrisd said...

What beautiful lace. I like to put lace on wedding cards and I have put lace on some sympathy cards. I will go check out the site. Thanks so much!

Valerie said...

Love this! I have boys, so I would love to use lace on the cards that I make for others, but want to make sure that it's versatile stuff as I don't use it for scrapping. This is gorgeous stuff! TFS!

LauraB said...

thanks for sharing your lace link! I have started laying lace on heavy cardstock then spraying with Glimmer Mist to create beautiful patterns. Once the lace dries, I can then use it on my cards and layouts.
have a blessed day!

Lexi E said...

Oh what beautiful lace! I love using lace on my mini albums.

Hi Patter~

Thank you for sharing this great store with me/us! I am very thankful for the opportunity to win some lace and ribbon!

I love lace! I use it on my vintage cards. I love to use it around an oval or circle. I also use it as an edge as opposed to using a strip of paper. I love to sew little faux (of course!) pearls into it...or in some types, I thread very thin ribbon through the openings. Other times, I add pins or parts of jewelry I have had onto the heavier lace.

I saw one example in a magazine that I haven't used just yet...they took sheer lace, not the beautiful crocheted lace, and covered most of the front of the card. They "tore" a hole in the lace in the shape of an oval, and put their stamped image in the center...very Vintage!

Thanks again for the opportunity! You are so wonderful as usual!

He IS Able,
Traci S.

There is a new blog starting Tomorrow! Please visit: Http://He-IS-Able.blogspot.com

Ginny said...

I love using lace on my scrapbook pages as embellishments. I've been wanting to do something with hair flowers though for my daughters hair. Thanks for the info on the ebay store!

Shawna said...

Hey Patter - thanks for the info on where to get some good bargains on lace! I love lace. And I use it quite frequently to resemble a table cloth on cards, and for exquisite borders. Thanks for the chance to win!

Anonymous said...

Thank you for sharing!! That's gorgeous lace! I love adding lace folded behind another embellishment.

Lisa said...

Thanks so much for the chance and the info about the lace....It looks great!!!

Verona said...

I used lace for the first time last week on two cards and liked it. It was some I had on hand from my years of sewing and quilting. But my supply is low, so I'm going to have to go out and find some. I really like what you found. I'll have to check her out. Thanks for sharing the info and the lace.

Dawn said...

I like to use lace on my tags, usually adding a staple here and there.

Tammy said...

Wow Patter, that lace is absolutely gorgeous! I just visited her ebay store and added her as one of my faves, may have to be making an order this evening, lol! I love to use lace on cards and my vintage LO's, it looks timeless. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Stephanie said...

I use lace on cards in place of ribbon...especially when I want a frilly or girly look.

trish said...

Hi,The lace is beautiful. I have just begun using lace lately for my cards, especially ruching it around a topper.
Many thanks for the chance of winning some of your 'yumminess'
Hugs,
Trish

Darlene Servolini said...

I love lace!! I can't ever hardly find any that I like in my local stores though. :( Lace adds the perfect touch of texture and romance into any project. :)

Tanya said...

Thanks for the info- that lace looks gorgeous!! I haven't used a lot of lace because I haven't found ANY lace that looks like yours does! However, I love using ribbon on my layouts & cards as a border or peeking out from underneath an embellishment to give some extra dimension. I bet lace would be gorgeous used in the same fashion.

Thanks for the chance to win! Have a great week!

MaxineD said...

Patter this is beautiful lace - thanks for sharing where you bought it. I too love lace on my projects and have a small stash, but it can always be increased should my name be selected ;-).
Blessings

Elisabeth said...

I use lace on so many LO. Around the photo, around the different shapes,as a part of the mosaic, in flower shape, as a fake fence you name it.
Just have a look at my gallerie - maybe this can inspire you.
BTW love your blog. So much inspiration- both scrapping and in helping me grow in faith.
