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.

Intentional 2013

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

  1. You must Learn something to Do it
  2. You must Do something to Teach it
  3. You must Teach something to KNOW IT!

Learn Teach Do Know

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.

Love is in the air!

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!

Making progress!

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.

Birthday Card

 

Sympathy card – the interior has the statement – “Praying for friends to comfort you, faith to uphold you, and loving memories to heal your heart.”
