Christmas Matchbox - swap " limited edition "

Good morning...
I'm glad to share these matchboxes I made from the "scratch" - yes, I scored the paper, made the box and decorated it, then filled it with some cute pieces and goodies for crafting - anything else beyond scrapbooking and card making.

The two ladies who received the boxes/goodies are from the Christian Paper Artists Group.
I'm member of the group for a while and now swapping for the very first time.
I'm happy I joined this one, the boxes I received from them are both very creative and cute.
The swap was 2 weeks ago.

Supplies: box - paper( Basic Grey, CTMH), glitter glitz, ribbons, brads, stamp and ink pad (CTMH) flowers (Prima), punch(Fiskars).

*Note: The stamp set I used is the brand new ones from Close To My Heart Autumn/Winter collection/idea book. See Image above. It's called Everlasting Life and became one of my favorite right after the CTMH D.C. 2010 Convention. through the letter form, the words, the beauty of these Scriptures. Love this set.

Have a blessed day!

A Thankful Heart

It's not just a holiday or a day during the month, but the "status' of a heart.
Being thankful is healthy, is worthy, brings good things toward the everyday's life.
It's a good thing we can give to ourselves and to others.
It should be so easily found in all tidbits of our routine, like an unexpected squeezed toilet paper by a busy toddler, an impressed image throughout a baby food puree, an almost invisible bubble shape seen in a bucket with detergent.
Simple and always. No matter what.

Just my thoughts for this week.

November Birthday Card - special one

Good evening...

Sharing tonight is the birthday card I made for my husband few weeks ago.
I used both the lovely bonsai stamp (from Stampin'Up) and scripted font word stamp (from CTMH). The papers(Emporium Collection), stitched ribbons, blue pearls, Liquid Glass (for the tree vase glossy accent), ink pads are all from Close To My Heart.

The design is simple but I liked the clean linear visual effect as final result of the card.

Thanks for stopping by!

my NSSS card #3

Hi there...
Thought I'd share the other set of cards I made for the NSSS Monday card swap, back in October. I was having a blast using the scoring board and seeing all the fun effects it can give through simple touches. The pink cardstock stripe was simply scored by 1/4 inch and slightly sanded to show the white core of the paper.

Supplies: papers (CTMH, DCWV), stamp, ink pad, glitter glitz(CTMH), scoring board(MS).

Happy card making,

3" x 3" mini album - Scriptures Inspirations

Hi everyone...
Today I'd like to share the 3" x 3" mini album set I made a time ago.
Except for the Scripture words (from Verve stamps), all the supplies I used are from CTMH.
The papers and the flower stamp are from the Topstitch Collection - workshop kit.

These albums are perfect to hold my Bible verse stamps or stamped word pieces as well. And because they are hand size and quite small, they are also perfect to be carried around in the purse or bag like a mini photo album.
Just love them, so versatile and cute.

Happy Day!

FUNdamentals technique sampler: "so blessed" card

Here is another card sampler for the FUNdamentals class - again, to review the fun techniques I taught during the previous classes.
In this card there are at least 7 techniques.
I find this a good way to remember the ideas shared in the teaching.

And again, the supplies are all from the CTMH newest Christmas collection - papers and stamps set.

Thanks for visiting me!
