My Stampin’Up! Why “Creating for Grace?”

My Stampin’Up! Why “Creating for Grace?”

I discovered papercrafting years ago when expecting my little girl. As time went on I was exposed to endless creative techniques, and the opportunity to become a Stampin’Up! demonstrator. This was perfect since I love to create with my hands and share that with friends & family. The blog name “Creating For Grace” was a natural choice, because that’s how it all started…Creating for my daughter Grace! The best part is now we can create together!

Stampin’Up! MDS2 My Digital Studio Classes coming soon

Stampin’Up! MDS2 My Digital Studio Classes coming soon

Since my friends became aware that I absolutely love the Stampin’Up! MDS2 software and do all of my scrapbooking digitally now, I’ve been asked to offer some classes on the MDS2…

Stampin'Up! MDS2 My Digital Studio Classes coming soon

Which, by the way,  goes far, far beyond simply scrappin’…We are talking invitations, those ever popular Photo Christmas cards, brochures, post cards, swatch books, custom cookbooks, calendars,  the possibilities are endless!!

I began as a traditional scrapbooker who said “I will NEVER do digital scrapbooking!”  I love the feel of paper, the hands on experience, and the attention to detail that goes into creating by hand.   Now fast forward a couple years… I have become a Stampin’Up! demonstrator and about that time I also begin to realize that every book (of 1 year) I create is approximately 4″ thick, lol…and I began asking myself if my daughter was really going to want 18-21 of those in the future??  My books for one year are now less than 3/4″ thick and simply beautiful 😀 In my humble opinion!!!

I do have to confess that I am a complete card making and 3D creation addict,  which fulfills all my hands on needs!!

Stampin’Up! MDS2 My Digital Studio Classes coming soon 
As for the MDS2, well obviously I’m a demonstrator for Stampin’Up!, but even so I can honestly say after having played with other online scrapbook offerings, scrapbooking with Photoshop Elements, etc… Still I would pick MDS2 hands down…I love the total control I have over every phase, and as much or as little automation as I want too!!  I love that I can use all the regular offerings from SU! as well as digital exclusives…and I really love that hybrid creations are a cinch!!

To top it all off I love ecutters, and because MDS2 files are an SVG format I can use them with my Silhouette Cameo, how cool is that!!!

Watch for my upcoming classes and let me know if you have any questions!!  As always, Happy Creating!!

 

A Stampin’ Up! Too cute Easter Card!!!

A Stampin’ Up! Too cute Easter Card!!!

I wish I could say I came up with this all on my own because I think it’s adorable and makes me smile,  but I cased it from our big Shoreline Stamp Camp…If I do find out who created it I will let you know 😀 

A Stampin' Up! Too cute Easter Card!!!

This card was super easy to put together!  It uses Crumb cake, Early Espresso, Whisper White, and Pink Pirouette cardstock.  The stamp sets are the Woodgrain Background and the Delightful Dozen.  Early Espresso was used for the sentiment and a bit of Pink Pirouette sponged for the body of the bunny.   To make the hole in the tree and the bunny bottom use the 1 3/8″ Circle punch… and oval punches for the feet 😀  The modern label punch for the sentiment is popped up with dimensionals, and the feet are too, as well as the early espresso “inside the hole” to add depth…  Finally, pearls are a fun finishing touch.  For this bunny tail we used the fabric roses which unfortunately are no longer available, but this cute bunny would look just as sweet with a tiny cotton tail dabbed in some Pink Pirouette!!!

Remember to make your envelopes pretty!  It has such a big effect for a little more effort!
