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.

Hopping Holidays

I've been hopping through the holiday preparations around here.  The house is mostly decorated and the tree is partially up (I started to put it up today but the lights didn't all come on so that's a huge process of going through each bulb and trying to figure out what's going on).  I'm tempted to cut off all the lights and buy some new LED lights to re-string the tree.  Our Christmas cards are made, the annual letter is written and they are all in the mail on their way to our dear family and friends.  Here's how they turned out.
I must say I love my Silhouette Cameo for big projects like this...it made the creation of 80+ cards so much easier.
I was also recruited to make the place cards for the husband's office holiday party.  Here's a sampling of how those turned out.
Simple and easy - but just enough holiday pizazz to get you in a festive mood.
Lastly, here's a sweet card for my sister-in-law who just celebrated her birthday.

I wish I had some layouts to share but that hasn't been happening lately.  I miss it and really want to get back to it.  I have to carve out some time and make it happen!  I hope all of your holiday preparations aren't wearing you out.
Pin It!
