“Who can find a virtuous woman? For her worth is far above rubies.” Proverbs 31:10
Hello, my name is Megan Elizabeth, I am 28 years old and the above verse is the goal of my life! I truly want to seek to be a Proverbs 31 woman, and it is the daily struggle of my life. But God is so good to me and has blessed me with so many amazing things. My prayer is that I can encourage you in just some small ways, all while having a blast enjoying our crafting, scrapbooking, card making and any other projects we jump into! Before crafting blogger, I am first and foremost Mommy to two amazing blessings, Bensen (4) and Jenavieve (3). (I’m sure you’ll be hearing a lot about them they are the best!)
Besides scrapbooking, I love teaching and playing with my kids. I also love shopping, singing at the top of my lungs (especially along with Donny Osmond ), and a wonderful Starbucks Latte while walking around AC Moore/Hobby Lobby. My kids and I recently moved to Oshkosh, WI and while not perfect, I love our little life here and I can’t say enough how much I am giving thanks to God for everything in my life, the good, the bad, the happy the sad…I learn everyday there are more moments to enjoy in every season of life!
My love for scrapbooking led me to the Cricut and then on to the wonderful online world of tutorials. My hope is to add value to this online community with my experience in Scrapbooking, Cardmaking and crafting. Since purchasing my Cricut over a year and a half ago, I have become obsessed with helping others learn the value of all that their Cricut can offer them. The Cricut offers so many options many users don’t know about, and I’m just the girl to show you how to get the most from your Cricut Machine.
I really have been best known for my Cricut A to Z Educational Cricut DVD, that will show you start to finish how to use your Cricut, along with hundreds of completed projects. This dvd has helped tens of thousands of people and I am giddy with excitement so many have embraced this! (Make sure you check that out too!)
Also, The Cricut Cutting Guide which has become a must have to any Cricut user out there. I have spent several months compiling over 550 different cuts to make on various materials and paper brands that you can cut with your Cricut. Not only are these listed, the Guide will tell you exactly what settings to use for the size cut you want and material you are using. I LOVE that it is also an APP for your digital phones/devices! (It’s just AWESOME!)
I have had the amazing honor in being asked to make guest appearances at several scrapbook stores, as well as instruct Cricut Classes all over PA, WI, FL and MN. I love doing these things, I am also have been involved with many different design teams and always love to work with other scrapbookers and designers! We all learn from each other and that is the best!
Above Rubies Studio is here to give you support in your daily life and in crafting. I am truly committed to giving you great resources for all of your scrapbooking, card making and Cricut projects. There is so much I want to say and I want to give you all at once, but one day at a time is where we have to start!
Why are you called Above Rubies Studio?
Many have asked where the name Above Rubies Studio came from…Well it was born out of a childhood dream of owning my own salon and the Bible Verse found in Proverbs 31:10 – “For her worth is far above rubies”. My goal was to always share and promote that a womans worth is much more than any precious gem on this earth when she is filled with the virtue and honor that Proverbs 31 talks about. It’s about the woman on the inside that matters and in God’s eyes where all our worth is. This passage of scripture is the perfect “model” woman of who I would love to become, and is an example for us all to be Above Rubies.
I hope you enjoy this site and that it can bring a smile to your day!
Enjoy the Moments!
