Red White and Blue

I can't believe it's almost half of the year.  Since July 4th is right around the corner I wanted to create a Red White and Blue card.  I have several sorority sisters who serve and have served in the military.  One of them will be the receiver.  This card was inspired by Viva La Verve card sketch and Word Art Wednesday free word art.  The digital is by Robert Jackson. He has lots of military digitals and you can find them here.

Creative Type of Girl

Getting my Random Acts of Kindness box prepared for my swap partner at Scraps of Color.  We are suppose to make a handmade gift and box minimum cost of $20 in scrapbook goodies on their wish list.  She is making tags with Tim Holtz products.  This is TH pages from the Retro Grunge paper stash and I had a blast at Michael's purchasing from his product line.  Her favorite colors are green and black.  This digital is by Robert Jackson, our greatest fan at SOC!  The stamped sentiment was from the front rack at Michael's a while back.    I thought it was the perfect image and sentiment for the RAK Swap.  Now to finish the homemade gift.  I'll be sure to post it after she receives her box.

Mist and Glitter

Just having a little fun this morning wide awake since 3:30am.  I wanted to play in my craft room.  With this cute little digital from A Day For Daisy,  their challenge is to add glitter.  I used Pink Paislee Coconut Pixee Stix.  Stickles was used for the butterflies and a little in the background.  A splash of pink shimmer by Recollections was also applied.  I joined in with Chocolate Coffee Cards Girls of Summer #112 challenge and Word Art Wednesday week 236-237 Family/Friendly ATG .  This card is for my little four year old cousin, who just finished her recital.

Vacation Bible School

We had an Amazing week at Vacation Bible School with our theme The Ultimate Climb.  My role was the Craft Coordinator and I was truly in my element making packets for 50 children!  Going on the hike I thought of the following crafty items hiking up to meet GOD.  Day 1 Up to Mt. Moriah the children made binoculars out of toilet paper rolls.  Die Cut with A View paper is so strong yet beautiful.  I found the perfect paper stacks in my stash.  A clothes pin was adhered to the middle and fiber used as a strap.

Day 2 Up to Mt. Sinai I wanted to create a frame to show God's creation from the heavens to the ground.  We used our scripture for the week.  This was used with Popsicle sticks and inks (they loved inking!).  They also colored the scenery and the animals and the leaf edge punch was used to show the grass. 
Day 3 Up to Mt. Zion - The City of God we put together a prayer journal.  Got to love the Die Cut with A View paper!  They also included their name in the Spellbinder die along with Prayer Journal.  I used Recollection washi tape and fiber from my stash.  The animal stamps are by Rubber Stampede. It was filled with scriptures and there were two pages which they had to write the letters A-Z and their assignment was to list words they were thankful for. 
Day 4 Up to Mt. Carmel the children made butterflies and the women's group made fans.  I found 100 white cupcake holders at a garage sale!!  Again they inked the edges and center, clothespins, google eyes and stickles.
The Women's group were filled with excitement, because this was their first year to craft.  I used old sheet music from our old church programs and Psalm 96:4 Stampabilities stamp.  They loved the papers.  It was all from Die Cut with a View.  I believe I just about cleaned out of my paper stacks. lol

Day 5 Up to Mt. Tabor - Mountain of Transfiguration we do not have Craft night on Friday.  We focus on Decision night to win souls to Christ.  This was the best year and we are looking forward to next year.
