Welcome to the newly redesigned Scraps by Heather website. You can now order your quilting services directly from the website. If you just want to look around, get ideas & contact me to set up a meeting that’s great too.
How does it work you ask?
Long Arm Quilting
Long Arm Quilting offered by Scraps by Heather included edge-to-edge (E2E), semi custom and full custom. You can order all of your quilting needs directly from here for E2E quilting. Custom or semi-custom quilting will include a consult and final costs will be determined at that point.
When ordering quilting you will need to know a few basic things. They are detailed in the product itself but include quilt size, quilting density and also how to prep your quilt & your quilt backing.
T-Shirt, Memory & Complete Quilts
These are quilts Scraps by Heather makes for you from start to finish. For Tshirt or memory quilts you provide your favorite T-shirts or baby clothes, sports memorabilia (things like rally towels) etc.
Another preview of a UFO…. an UnFinished Object in quilters terms… Pretty sure we can use the same concept as scrappers!

I mentioned on facebook this week that I wanted to be more intentional with the blog this year. Here are a few ideas and PLEASE let me know what you think!
- Learn it Tuesday (LiT)
- Did it Thursday (DiTh)
- Wordless Wednesday (I went out of day order on purpose – keep reading)
- Friday Night Blogs (FnBlogs)
The first two (LiT & DiTh) spring from an idea I heard in college that has stuck with me since
- You must Learn something to Do it
- You must Do something to Teach it
- You must Teach something to KNOW IT!
Learn it Tuesday (LiT) – focused on any technique but mainly digi/techy stuff (including the Silhouette)
Wordless Wednesday (WW) – a popular MEME right now I enjoy seeing on other blogs & want to jump on board with
Did it Thursday (DiTh) – showcasing projects I finished – scrapbook pages (including Project Life), mini albums, quilts, etc.
Friday Night Blogs (FNB) – a showcase of blog posts that I have been reading (covering any topic)
Some of these will be weekly – others less often but still consistent. Let me know which you like the best before I make my final decisions.
Also – I am looking into the proper plugin to allow you to blog along with me on the LiT & DiTH posts and link your posts up.
It’s been a while since I have posted new stuff on here and I am sorry! I have been looking into better ways to display the cards as well as improving the website to make ordering easier. I now need to go back & photograph many of my old cards and put them on the newly improved website. I do have some product on there so feel free to go take a look!

Well it has been a few weeks since my last post. As time goes on these will become more regular. 🙂 In the last few weeks alot has happened with my website! It has come a long way… not quite live yet but nearly so. If you found this blog & want to check it out while it’s in progress the temporary link is www.scrapsbyheather.com/anna. Once it goes live the /anna will be dropped.
So what’s new with me? I have been working on the website – putting together a price/product list is alot harder than I thought it would be. Do I want to go fully custom – how much for different sizes? Where do I want to print my digital prints at etc.?
That said – here is some of what I have done. I have found a very awesome professional printer that is the largest in the country & also a semi-local – Kansas anyway – business! I have also been researching S4H, S4O policies – and if you don’t know what those are, S4H – Scrap for Hire; S4O – Scrap for Others… very slight differences but most policies cover both. In the card making world these are referred to as Angel Policies. What I have found is that many of my favorite digital products have great S4H/S4O policies. Unfortunately, in the paper world it’s much harder so I have decided to utilize Stampin’ Up! exclusively for my paper products. That’s great because I am a demonstrator already & I have alot of supplies, not to mention they are top quality. So due to some of the restrictions I am looking at 100% digital for my scrapbook pages for sale – Stampin’ Up! has a great line of products for making cards, but for scrapbooks it would be too limiting for me.
Project I have been working on range from a Superman card for a friend to take to Vietnam to give to his son in July to a few projects for my husband. The Superman card has me worried – my friend doesn’t see his son often so I feel alot of pressure to make the card AWESOME!
Here are a few completed samples. I have a friend who is moving and asked for “We’ve moved” cards – I jumped right in without any idea of what she wanted because I had some ideas for a card I had wanted to make & now a ready-made use. She has decided on a style similar to the Van Gogh card I posted on 3/26/09 so I am adding the card I created to my digital “stock” collection online – I think it would be suitable for Thank Yous, as designed, or many other uses.
I also created a Birthday card and a Sympathy card this week. Here are those examples.
Sympathy card – the interior has the statement – “Praying for friends to comfort you, faith to uphold you, and loving memories to heal your heart.”
Thanks for visiting!
