Embellishment Box Swap

It's a Parade of Embellishment Boxes at Scraps of Color.  This box was made for my partner Christa Stokes.  She creates the cutest layouts! Along with the Embellishment box, we had to make two handmade embellishments and mine were altered paper clips and an envelope with a few goodies.  Well since I couldn't put all the goodies in the envelope, I just added them to her box to mail.  Have you made an embellishment box lately?


Just a few things for her passion to scrapbook and paint

A Mother

This card was made for my mother on Mothers Day.  It was inspired by Viva La Verve May sketch.  DCWV The Gilded Paper stack was used to create this card. The stamp is 'A Mother Is' by Stampabilities.  I added the gold Recollection doily and Ranger embossing powder was used for the sentiment.  

I made a little pocket page to enclosed the sentiment that is actually detached with a note at the bottom and a little cash to spoil herself.  : )

Prima Doll Swap With A Twist

Scraps of Color had a swap "Prima Doll With a Twist!"   You could create a tag, pocket letter or journal or all three.  Below are my creations for my partners.  As you can tell, Nedine was my partner for the journal.  I wanted to create something inspirational for her.  The black die cut is actually a typewriter, but it's hard to see with the note 'Count it all Joy'. All papers are from Simple Stories Faith paper stack and the quotes and phrases are from Create 365 The Happy Planner Faith sticker sheet.  Stickers are all in the journal so when she turns a page, she will have an instant smile and a reminder of the goodness of God.

This Prima Doll Taylor was used for this Pocket Letter that was created for Walena using Me and My Big Ideas paper stack and other embellies.

This Prima Doll Chiara was created for Tracy using Simple Stories Life in Color paper stack and other embellies.

 This Prima Doll Keira tag was created for Gloria using Our Daily Bread paper stack and other embellies.

Crafty weekend

It was a busy weekend, but you better believe I made time to play in the craft room.  Let me share three projects I worked on.  They are all challenges going on at Scraps of Color.  The first one is to use a Robert Jackson digital.  The theme is "It's In the Song".  Let me tell you when I first purchased this digital, the song that came to my mind was "Standing in the Need of Prayer" by John P Kee.  You can listen to it here.  I'm a witness God does hear and answer prayers.
Used Bo Bunny Faith Collection
Our Daily Bread Filigree Frames
Bic Mark it markers
This one is my brothers birthday card.  He's going to be touched by the inside.  
So proud of the man he has become.

RAK Swap - Mini Album

Check out this 6 x 6 Interactive Mini Album I created for my swap partner at Scraps of Color!  Ruby Wilkes was my partner and she loves to travel.  The beautiful papers I've been hoarding used for this traveling theme mini album are Echo Park's (Get Away) paper stack.  Everything was made from scratch and to tell you how determined I was to get it done....It was finished in one night.  Oh Yes!!!!  The adrenaline in my little crafty heart was pumping up something powerful! The only thing I hate is that I didn't write down the measurements. Oh well....I am definitely a tea girl, but for some strange reason I was craving coffee that day.  Should I say anything more?  LOL  Hope you enjoy viewing it!   Time to organize my craft studio for the next project.

Daniel Fast

I've joined the Daniel Fast.  My cousin asked me to start one week later so she would have a prayer partner and I called my soror to join so we three are having a great start in the Lord in 2018!  I haven't been tempted eating outside fruits and vegetables.  Prayers have already been answered! The altered journal was designed to write notes of my journey of how the Lord blessed, scriptures including personal notes to the Lord, and my meal plan. My word for 2018 is PEACE.  Yes PEACE within and PEACE in the world. Lord have mercy.....The tag I made for my journal is evidence of the word.

My journal and tag
Digital Image is Robert Jackson Fine Arts

Close up of my tag.  It reminds me of the Mother's Board.

Oh Yes!
