Ep.#585 ~ Scrapbooking | Combining Tradtional and Project Life!

Hi there Crafty Friends,
Today I am scrapbooking and combining a traditional 12 x 12 page with a Project Life Pocket Page. Keep your eye out for how I make photos fit into a pocket that it isn;t meant to fit into...
I really  need to put more time into getting caught up, I don't know about you but it drives me crazy being two years behind - aaaaacccckkk!

Have a great week ~
Happy Hugs,

Bible Journaling Sunday ~

Hi Everyone,
I wanted to create a bible journaling page today using my new #creativeretreat kit for the month of August. It arrived while I was out of town with my scrubby (scrapbooking hubby) and I am excited to finally have found some time (6am - ugh) to give it a go! 

For some reason this was a challenging entry for me at I just felt like going back to the very beginning...
I really like the stamps and the lettering font in this months kit, it's really pretty. 
Thanks for taking a few moments to read my blog today, I hope your day of rest is a peaceful one.

Happy Hugs,

Ep.#581 ~ Marbling Technique | Colorful Seaons By Stampin' Up!

Fall is in the air, fall is in the air - yippee skippy!
I am sooooo looking forward to creating cards and scrapbook pages for fall and everything that goes along with it. I miss football my fireplace and decking out the house in all the beautiful colors that can only mean one season... FALL!!!
I hadn't done the Marbling Technique is forever so I thought it was high time to bust out my marbles. The beauty of this techqnue is that no two cards will ever be the same! I am anxious to make some pretty Halloween backgrounds using roange and black too, how funky will that be?
