Why Scraps of Grace you ask??? Primarily because it is through God's grace that I am able to do what I love...scrapbooking, cardmaking, basically anything that has beautiful paper and embellishments involved. This is also a place to share my work as well as whatever is on my heart. A creative outlet for the mind, body, and soul.

I encourage you to relax, read, and browse a while and I hope that your day will be brightened and blessed by what you encounter.

Girls Paperie Goodness

These layouts were made with this week's kit over at Queen Scraps...is it not absolutely gorgeous??? The color palette and patterns immediately spoke "vintage" to me so with a little distressing of the edges, I came up with these two layouts.

This is my great-grandparents farm. I did purchase the add-on die cuts available here in the Queen Scraps store. I used the Smooch Spritz in Spun Sugar to "age" the look of the background cardstock as well. This can also be purchased here in the Queen Scraps store. I'll post a tutorial for the rolled, paper flowers later this week in the Queen Scraps Forums.

This other layout is of my grandmother when she was younger. I've shown you this one already but wanted you to see all that I was able to create with this one kit.  Once again I used some of the die cuts from the add-ons and the Smooch Spritz to age the background cardstock.

I made this card based on a challenge sketch on a blog I follow...totally simple and once again used the Smooch Spritz and add-on die cuts (can you tell I'm loving this combination). The card base is simply a piece of kraft cardstock I had in my own supplies. I'll share some additional cards I made using parts of this kit and scraps from my own supplies later in the week.

Pin It!
