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.

Congrats to the grad...

Here's the card I made for my niece's graduation.  I love being able to make "girly" stuff - with a house full of boys, it's not often I get to use frilly things!  Plus I was able to use some of the new GCD papers that I won in a recent RAK and some of the Webster's Pages journaling cards that I ordered from Your Scrapbook Stash not too long ago. 

Supplies used: brad - Sassafras; cardstock - The Paper Co.; ink - Tim Holtz and Tsukineko; journaling card - Webster's Pages;  patterned paper - GCD Studios; stamp - Basic Grey; thread - craft supplies

I've also started to invest in the Tim Holtz Distress inks for the first time.  I really like the way I can age the entire sheet of paper I'm working on or just the edges and how soft and natural it ends up looking.  Loving them! 

Our busy summer schedule is in full swing.  Son #1 just had his wisdom teeth surgically removed yesterday (okay, that was not so fun and he's hurting pretty bad right now).  Son #2's baseball has started and he has his first game tonight.  Son #3 starts baseball next week and my wonderful husband is coaching his team.  We scheduled out our camping trips - and let's just say we're spending a lot of time with mother nature this summer.  All of that, along with Vacation Bible School at our church (which #2 & #3 will both attend and I will work) and the prospect of son #3 playing flag football starting at the end of summer - whew...I'm wiped out just thinking about it!  Whatever happened to the lazy days of summer???  Gonna have to fit some time in for lounging around AND scrapping!

Pin It!
