Ep.#559 ~ Bible Journaling | Seeds of Faith

Hi there Everyone,
I was FINALLY able to get this video uploaded, gosh - it took 9 tries and 3 days for anything to upload to YouTube! My apologies for the delay in having a video for you all...
Today I am sharing a glimpse of how I go about my way of bible journaling. I LOVE this kind of creative outlet and I have learned so much from reading my bible more.

Thanks for watching and if you have any questions just let me know!
Happy Hugs,

Scrapbooking Layout | Rose Wonder Stamp Set

Hi Everyone,
Are you ready for the weekend? I sure am!!! I was able to get my house cleaning done early yesterday so I could do some fun scrapbooking , woo-hoo!
I finally used the "Rose Wonder" stamp set from Stampin' Up! To create the pretty background paper which is perfect for the pictures of our gardens around our home. I used my watercolor brush and ink from my ink pads (right on the lids) to create the pretty watercolor effect. 
I filmed a video yesterday as well using my phone and after trying all Day yesterday ias well as again this morning and it will not upload for some reason. I had to just give up so I will make another today and hopefully that will upload without a problem.
Have a great weekend and I hope you get some crafty time to yourself...
Happy Hugs,

Ep.#558 Stampin' Up! "Congrats Graduate 2017" Card!

Happy Saturday Crafty Friends,
Well, it's almost that time of year again... GRADUATION TIME! Our baby boy is graduating from High School this year and it is with mixed emotions that I am making this card.... *Sigh*
So many exciting new adventures on the horizon for him and we will officailly be empty-nesters - yikes!
With all of this in mind, I grabbed my trusty Large Numbers Die, the Sunshine Wishes Die and the Stars Die and set to work. I really like how this card turned out and I think it works for either a girl or a guy. You could personalize it by using the recipients school colors, how fun!

I hope this gives you some inspiration, don't let the Graduations sneak up on you!
Happy Hugs,

Happy Scrappin' Day!

Hi Crafty Friends, 
It's a cold and rainy day here in Chicago so I am spending the day scrapbooking in my craft room and doing what I love!

I busted out the uber cute paper collection from Doodlebug called "Cream and Sugar". 

As many of you know, I am diligently working to get our annual family albums up to date. "I think I can , I think I can ..."
Big Hugs,
