New & Exciting

It is so much fun designing and uploading things to the store - way better than keying code and stumbling my way through e-commerce technicalities!  It's still moving more slowly than I would like, but the devil's always in the details.  I am working very hard to produce quality products and do things right to showcase them in the shop.

I promised you a freebie this week, and your wait is over!  One of the products I just uploaded to the shop is a package of ten digital background papers that are embossed with all kinds of fun things.  Your freebie is the 11th one that I left out of the kit, so that you could have a freebie.  All papers were created at 12" X 12" and 300 dpi for print quality.

If you like this embossed paper and would like more, please visit my shop at DigiScraps-n-More where you can pick up the whole kit of Embossed Background Papers.

As always, this freebie is for personal use only.  Please send me a link to your pages if you use this - I'd love to see them!

Thanks for your continued support, and stay tuned for more!

Great News!

God’s grace and blessings just keep coming!  While mired in the details and learning my way through e-commerce to get my scrapbooking shop open, I was blessed with becoming a new designer at an existing digital scrapbooking store!

I’m still designing and getting things uploaded, but please have a look!  The store is called DigiScraps –n- More.  Here’s a link to the shop:

And this link will take you directly to my shop at DigiScraps –n- More
– but please check out the other great designers, as well.

My first upload is a set of 12 layered templates with heritage scrapping in mind.  They have lots of open space to journal those favorite family stories that need to be preserved.  For those of you who are trying to get heritage books ready for your family in time for Christmas – these layouts will save you a lot of time!  Just drop in your photos, along with backgrounds and elements from your favorite kit, and your masterpiece is complete!  A little sample ...

I promise you a freebie later this week – after I have some other tasks off my plate!

Find Us Faithful

Better late than never, right?  Sorry for the delay in sharing another piece of WordArt, but a case of strep knocked me out of commission for a few days.  I'm on the mend and back to share a new piece with you.

I've always loved this song by Steve Green, with its meaningful lyrics.  I'm blessed to have had faithful, Godly ancestors to lead my way.  I dedicate this piece in their honor and memory.  This would be a great element to use on those heritage pages you keep meaning to scrap - so enjoy!  Please share with me the fruits of your labors, and I'll be glad to showcase your handiwork.

Thanks for your kind comments - they really help!

Here We Go!

Welcome to Heart of Grace Designs!  This has been a dream of mine for a very long time - and today is the first step in launching our business.

Digital scrapbooking is a favorite hobby.  I have purchased many kits and downloaded many freebies over the years.  Every single time I did so, I longed to be on the other end of that process - designing and providing freebies to my own clients!  And always, we want to share our love for the Lord.  Many of the products we have on the drawing board have a Christ-centered theme, as that is who we are and how we live our lives.

For our first freebie, it is only fitting that it be a piece of wordart about GRACE.  I have certainly received my share of God's blessings through his amazing grace!  We hope that you will enjoy using this piece in your own creations!

Click here to download.

We will be sharing more along the way, and welcome your comments and suggestions as we wade through this process.  Thanks for your patience while we are learning!

This freebie is for personal use only.  If you know of others who would enjoy it, please send them the link to my blog - not to the freebie itself.  Thanks for your help in supporting designers in this way!

Peace and Grace be with you, new friends and old!
