Welcome our GDT Stephanie

Hello everyone Cristina here to share with you our wonderful guest designer. Stephanie was one of the top 3 DT picks for our Challenge #13 Card Fold with her wonderful card. We are so happy to have her as our guest.
Hi, my name Stephanie Wright. I’ve been saved by God’s amazing grace. I met my Mr. Wright *grin* while in college and we were married in late December 1984. My husband and I have been in full-time ministry our entire marriage. We moved to Kentucky in July 2012 so that my husband could take a new pastorate and teach in a Christian college. The Lord blessed us with two children, Ian & Kendra, and I had the privilege of homeschooling them. Our son and his wife live in Virginia and are the parents of our precious grandson, Jack (aka Sir Cuteness). Our daughter is a newlywed living in SC while attending grad school at a Christian college. While I have enjoyed many different crafts all my life, I started scrapbooking in 2004 with the intent of making a sports scrapbook for Ian's high school graduation party. By Fall 2008 I found my focus turning to making cards and other paper crafts. While I love the look some crafters achieve with CAS designs, my "style" usually involves layers, faux stitching, and die cuts. I currently have the privilege to be on two different design teams. To me, card-making is more than just a hobby; I see it as a ministry tool as well. That’s one of the reasons I enjoy using Scripture on my cards. I’m usually supervised while crafting by at least one of our three cats. Some of my favorite tips: Must-have tool: A must have tool in my craft room is a pair of tweezers. I use them for pearl/rhinestone placement, paper piecing small pieces, holding my paper while heat embossing and lots more. Organizational items: Think "out of the box" when it comes to organizational items. For example: I have a drawer unit intended for screws holding brads and other small embellishments. A wire kitchen rack is the perfect Stickles unit. It holds the bottles upside down and allows me to store other items under it on my shelf. My newest treasure is a cassette tape rack handmade by my father-in-law that will be perfect for my ink pads. I just acquired this and haven't moved into it yet but it will fill an organizational need and gives me room to grow! Die Storage: I store my dies in empty CD cases. I purchased magnetic vent covers at Lowe's/Home Depot. They come cheaply in packs of two. By cutting each 8" x 15" vent cover into 4" x 5" pieces, I can have magnetic sheets for a dozen sets of dies for a very low cost. I don't adhere the magnetic sheet to the case because I also keep a sample die cut for each die in the set in the case too. These samples tremendously when planning sizes for your card/project and/or combining die cuts. I then label the front of the case with the die name (and manufacturer if they are not Spellbinders) and store them in a drawer in my Jet Max unit.

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
