Say Hello to Tracy Gruber…

Today we are introducing Tracy Gruber!


Hello!  My name is Tracy and I have been crafting since I was a little girl.  I started scrapbooking when I was in high school and card-making about 3 years ago.  I am currently going to college for Graphic Design and work part-time at a local scrapbooking store.  I have been published a couple of times and also have an Etsy shop where I sell handmade banners and cards.  Paper-crafting is such an awesome hobby because I am able to preserve memories while expressing my creativity!  When I’m not crafting, I enjoy spending time with my family, rollerblading playing tennis, and shopping.  I am so excited to be a part of the Core’dinations design team and use the best card stock on the planet!

Make sure you check out Tracy’s Blog HERE for more inspiration and keep reading to learn more about her layout today.

I love using bright colors on my layouts!  I cut banners out of different colored Core’dinations cardstocks and sanded them for some added texture.  I also used dies to cut out the hearts and flowers and sanded them as well.  I thought the Core Tags would be a cool way to display all of my photos on the layout, I just had to trim the bottoms off of them a bit.
