Hello new blog!

Welcome to Jennifer Grace Creates! If you don’t know, I used to blog at Jennifer’s Jumbles, but I have made the switch to WordPress and this is my first post here!

As March has been a slightly hectic month, this blog is not quite as ‘polished’ as I’d hoped, but I’ve decided it’s good to go! What do you think?

If there’s anything that’s hard to read, or any links not working, etc, please let me know!

Of course I couldn’t open a new blog without a giveaway! Enter the Rafflecopter giveaway widget below, and you could be in with a chance to win this lot of goodies:

New Blog Giveaway!

Lovely, pretty stuff! The prize includes 9 sheets of Crate Paper Maggie Holmes paper, plus the tags cut-outs sheet, some designer die-cuts, and the mini-words sticker sheet from the same collection. There’s also some Glitz Cashmere Dame teeny-alphas, a roll of Glitz Hello Friend Washi Tape, some Hero Arts Clear Gemstones, a 12″ strip of American Crafts Gold Glitter Tape, and some Studio Calico Wood Veneer Cameras and Chevrons (half a pack of each). It also includes a pot of pink Stickles which I forgot to include in the photograph!

Read on to find out how to win it… but first of all I want to say a bit about me and the new blog in case you’re new here, or trying to find your way around!

My name is Jennifer Grace, and I’m a papercrafting mum-of-two, from Dorset, UK. You can read more about me here, or see my crafting resume here. My blog focuses on scrapbooking, but also features cardmaking and other crafts, plus a little bit of me, when the mood strikes!

There’s a few ways to follow me in my sidebar, including Bloglovin, Feedly, and emails. You can choose to sign up to emails just for ‘news’ which will tell you about giveaways, classes and events at Jennifer Grace Creates, or you can sign up to receive emails each time a post goes live. Or both, or neither! If you sign up to receive the news emails then you’ll also receive a ‘Project Photos – How To’ PDF about how I photograph and edit pictures of my work – I’m not a professional photographer but hopefully I can offer you a few hints and tips! If you completed one of my surveys that I had at my old blog, and said then that you’d like news emails from me, then you should already have an email from me in your inbox – you just need to confirm your subscription.

As Google Reader (and probably Google Friend Connect) will be closing this summer, I chose not to add that as a way to follow here. But if you’re still using that at the moment, or you use a different reader, you should be able to copy my blog address into your reader to follow me. If it doesn’t work at first, you can try adding /feed/ after the blog address.

I have listened to those who completed my survey about what they’d like to see at this blog (the winner of that survey has been contacted and they have replied – sorry if you didn’t win but maybe you’ll win this one!). Hopefully there’s enough here to please everyone. I will certainly be continuing posts in the same format as I did at Jennifer’s Jumbles, with maybe a few more real life stories creeping back in as requested by some!

I will also be continuing with my bi-annual blog events, the next one is scheduled for 10th-12th May 2013, so mark your calendars and make sure you check back here then!

There will be more new and exciting things happening here as time goes on… but for now I’ll leave you with details on how to enter the giveaway for the Maggie Holmes Prize Pack pictured above…

You can enter via the Rafflecopter Widget below. The easiest option is to just to leave a comment on this post, telling me what you think of the new blog! But please make sure if you choose this option you do also click on the Rafflecopter button to say you’ve left a comment – I will choose the winner via Rafflocopter, so don’t do that you won’t be entered. There’s lots of other ways to get more entries too, including following this blog, and sharing news about this giveaway via twitter, facebook, pinterest, etc.

The giveaway is open internationally, and will close on Monday 8th April at 12.00am GMT (so enter by next Sunday night!).

I hope you’ll enjoy having a look around and continuing to visit me at Jennifer Grace Creates! x

  • its a lovely looking blog with a great amount of space for the important bit in the middle – not the sides (which are also not overpowering. I can’t read blogs like that) More importantly I am looking forward to the content 🙂

  • Looks good – I like the clean design, do understand the ‘not as polished as I’d like’. But then tweaking is part of the fun 🙂
