Createful Hearts Designs Blog Challenge-September 15-October 13 2018

Hello All!

Here is my blog entry for Createful Heats Design. The theme was Fall and I used their Pumpkin Patch Kitty. I also used a new technique in "coloring" the image. I used three different colors of in on an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of card-stock and then ran it through our printer. I did have to "touch up" a few places where the sketching was lighter but all in all I am pleased with the results!

You do have to watch the colors you choose they can not be to dark or you can not be to heavy handed.

My grand daughter will love this as her Fall card!

Thank you for looking!

Hello All!

 These are hand stamped. I also have some in red. I can recreate these if you would like a different color scheme. These cards are $3.00 plus shipping if not being hand delivered!

Happy Day to All!

I believe we have everything in place to start the changes!

We have our new FB page up and running and will be posting these blog posts there as well! I also will be posting some cards for sale over the next few days! 

We are working hard on getting cards up and taking special orders for all of you so bear with us as we create the special order forms. 

For now we will take special orders in the comments here and on our FB page. 

Coming in the near future we will also have some 3D items as well as mini albums and Scrapbook pages. You may special order any of the items as well. 

Another exciting thing that will be happening is YouTube tutorials/videos! I will be working on that branch of our new business and getting it up and running as well. 

We are so excited about this new phase of our journey and glad you are coming along with us!

I will start posting cards over the next for days. The postings will include the size and price of each card as well as if the card can be duplicated. I will also have some $1.00 cards and a couple sets.

Changes are a brewing!

Happy June 1st Everyone!

I are so sorry for the lag in updating my blog. I have been busy with so many things going on! 

We have permanently moved in to our travel trailer and have been at our Summer residence since March 1st. We have had a few ups and downs learning our new life...yesterday we had a storm roll through and lost our awning and our soft spot inside the trailer is worse so this week we will be getting work done on the floor and a new awning! Not exactly what we wanted to do with funds this month!

My friend Beth and I have been making 70+ albums for her upcoming family reunion. We started around the end of March and we are only half way done so we are feeling the pressure!!! Below are some pictures of the first album we put completely together. I will post a few in between as well. (Pictures do not show how beautiful they really are)

We have 30 done and 40 more to go! In between all the albums I have had two birthday party kits to do. One Spiderman (I forgot to take pictures!),one Pokemon and getting ready for VBS. Below is the picture of the Pokemon invitation. I will be working on his banner, cupcake toppers, and thank you cards this week!

I also found time to make two cards for two different challenges. One for Createful Hearts (below):

This was for Createful Hearts monthly FB challenge. Then next on will start on June 15. Hop on over and join Createful Hearts Digi & Designs FB page join and then join in on the challenge! (Prismacolor Pencils)

The following one was for the monthly challenge during May for Twinkle Lane Designs. It was a darling baby Digi. June's Digi is a very cute gnome. Go over to their page and join in on the fun! (Prismacolor Pencils)

I will be selling my cards, birthday packages, invitations, etc. here on my blog and my new FB page. Right now until I get through June with all the albums and VBS (I will post those pictures later this weekend!) I will take special orders. Just leave a comment here or on my FB page (papercrafting with Mimi) and I will contact you to get all the details of what you need! 

I saved the best for last. You may have noticed that the name of my blog has change to "In His Grace Paper Crafts". This will be the new name of my business beginning today. FB won't let me change the name on my "Papercrafting with Mimi" page so over the next couple of weeks I will be working on a new FB page. I will we posting on both FB pages for six months so it will give you all time to join the new page AND remember when we reach 100 members there will be a give away!!!

Well I better get off here and get to work! Beth sent me home with homework! I think I will charge her double time since it is the weekend! LOL!

Last Post and the most Exciting (for me) Post! #4

I am so excited my Fellow Stampin' Peeps!

I am going to start selling my specialty cards and items through my blog and FaceBook page! I have said I was going to do this for a long time but didn't have the confidence in my self. With my hunny, daughters, and some close friends encouraging me I am now ready!

These will be specialty cards and I will only make four of each unless I have an order for more. I will also do some 3D projects and I have a new product that I will be doing as well. 

I have some cards ready to put up but I am going to "showcase" my new event project first. 

Birthday party packs! In this pack you will get; 12 Invitations, 20 Thank You Cards, 12 Goodie Bags, 25-35 Cupcake toppers, and Happy Birthday (persons name) banner. This set was made for my youngest grand daughter and she choose "Frozen". I have and order for Spiderman and Ninja Turtles that will be coming up soon. These sets will sell for $60.00. If you need more of any items the price will be adjusted depending on what you need. I can also do adult birthday's. I can also do any theme you choose.

I will post some of my specialty cards this weekend. They will run $2.50-$7.00. I need to get pictures of them. Some of the other items I have done in the past are wedding invitations, bookmarks, candy holders, Christmas cards, note cards...really pretty much anything made with paper I can do!

Well I have filled your head with lots of stuff with 4 different blog posts. I was behind and I knew I wanted to tell you this today!!!

Have a great week!

Createful Hearts Digi's and Design-TWO Challenges!

Hello Again my Stampin' Peeps!

As some of you know I am on the DT for Createful Hearts Digi's and Designs and in February we started shaking things up a little. We now have a monthly challenge on our FB page that runs from the 15th to the 13th (February 15th to March 13th). We give you a sketch and one of  Mary's Digi's. You have a month to place your card in the album for the challenge and then we use to choose a winner who wins one of Mary's Digi's of their choice! I posted earlier in the month the card I made for that one but here it is again! LOL!

This Digi is called "Up Up and Away" I think it is really cute and I really enjoyed coloring it! The FB page is Createful Heart Digi's & Design

Createful Hearts Digi's and Design's also has a monthly blog challenge running right now from the 1st to the last day of each month. I used one of Mary's new/old Digi's that I fell in love with. It is called "Easter Cross". Our challenge on the blog is anything goes with a little twist. March we had to use green...I think I did it! LOL! Here is Mary's blog address

The paper I used is from SWME-KiaserKraft...I don't believe we carry it any longer, however they may be able to special order it for you! Contact Miss Edith. Here is their store address

We also have daily challenges at SWME Member Room on Facebook. Check them out and join in...I  believe today's is "Wacky Wednesday" your choice but a little wacky! LOL!
