In a previous post I provided tips on how to incorporate lace patterned scrapbook paper into a variety of layouts. If you are looking to give your page designs a vintage, delicate or feminine look, a little lace paper can go a long way.
Fortunately, you don’t have to drive from store to store or scour the Internet for retailers that carry beautiful lace paper designs. Scrapbook.com offers a wide array of lace paper, in a rainbow of colors. Last year I found some incredible blue and purple lace detailed paper on the website, and used it to embellish a layout showcasing my cousin’s prom photos. The colors of the paper matched perfectly with her gown and her date’s black tuxedo.
Paper Wishes is also a great option when you are shopping around for lace paper. I fell hard for the company’s hot pink, metallic-looking lace patterned paper. It’s definitely not your grandma’s doily-inspired lace pattern. In addition to the one-of-a-kind paper, you can also find lace sticker trim, lace stamps and lace border stickers.
If you are looking for a place that will fit all your lace paper needs, whether they are traditional or a bit more daring, then I would suggest visiting KI Memories. The place is stocked with everything from dainty vintage-type lace paper to electric green lace trims. You can also find black paper with a bumblebee-yellow lace pattern or white paper with lace outlined in a variety of shades, including red, blue and brown.
Obviously, you are not going to want to use lace scrapbook paper on a layout featuring your husband’s annual golf trip with his buddies. Rather, despite how bold the color, lace paper is best reserved for memory books with a wedding, bridal shower, Mother’s Day, baptism, baby or vintage theme.
