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.

What I Love About You...

Since I've been super busy with work this past week, I haven't had a whole lot of crafty time for myself.  I found  a few moments yesterday though and created a {LOVE} themed card for my design team challenge over at Crop Chocolate.  With the exception of the flower and the base cardstock, the entire thing was created with product that I've purchased at Crop Chocolate (at super great prices I might add).  I've been seeing a lot of this color combination of the turquoise and bright pink so I thought I'd give it a whirl on my whimsical card.

Cardstock - American Crafts; Patterned Paper - Sassafras; Journaling card - Echo Park Paper Co.; Border punch - Fiskars; Border sticker - Echo Park Paper Co.; Flowers - Prima & Sassafras; Thread - Coats & Clark; Sewing machine - Singer
I used my sewing machine on this one and had fun with another random stitch pattern.  I also moved my sewing machine and it's table up to my craft room - granted it's in the closet but it's a walk in closet with good lighting so it will do just fine.  I imagine you'll see LOTS more stitching on my projects now that I don't have to venture into our cold basement to use my sewing machine...it's just a few steps from my work table.  Oh, I'm truly in heaven with my new crafty space.
Pin It!
