Recent Papercrafting

I haven't devoted a huge amount of time to listing new items in my shop, but I have worked on a couple of custom orders since we got home from camp. I was sailing along before camp, listing new items several times a week, and then I lost my momentum. These custom orders got me back into my craft room area again!

The first order was for 20 thank-you cards of various designs in pink and lavendar. My customer is having a baby, and she wanted cards to give to those who give her baby gifts. These are some of the cards I made for her.

My second order was a snap to finish: 20 large gift tags with shaded edges and just a simple stamp.

I have really enjoyed doing custom work. I love working with people to give them exactly what they want! You can see more of my work in my Etsy shop, HandmadeByGrace.


  1. Those are so pretty!

  3. Susan, I've been watching my mailbox like a kid waiting for Christmas! I can't wait for the cards to arrive. Thanks for posting another picture of them!

  5. Beautiful cards and tags!

    I have a question for ya since you are a 'crafty' a good way of course! ha.
    When I ordered Cale's Rosetta Stone French curr., I ordered myself a calligraphy set. I have always thought it was sooo pretty, and I have wanted to learn. My question is this:
    What all can I do with calligraphy? I need some ideas. I send lots and lots of cards, so I was thinking it would make them even more special to address and sign them in calligraphy, but I want to do other things as well...just don't know what. Thanks for any help!

    Happy Day By George!
