Stitching on Paper/ Accent Essentials/ Gypsy

This is a page I worked on last night ( & no, I don't work in any order when I scrapbook). It's a page about my oldest and I decided to show it to showcase stitching on paper. If you haven't yet tried it, it can be tons of fun and adds a pretty texture to your projects. It can also be done before gluing the element to your page, or after. You just have to keep in mind how the paper will fit in your sewing machine.
The die-cut is from Accent Essentials, & I welded it to a circle. The Gypsy allows you to see which size will work for your page.


The title is from Cosmo Cricket, and the collection is one of my favorites. I also added ribbon to the bottom with stiching along the center.

I decided to journal on the circle, and popped the center gradually. Then I added white stiching with a gel pen in two designs along the edges.

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.

Mermaid Pop Up card using Cricut Design Space 3

Thank you for stopping by!
In this video tutorial you will learn how use Cricut Design Space 3, Print & Cut, and other little details to make a stand-out Mermaid card for any occasion!

There are 3 videos total.

 In the 1st you will learn how to add a Pop-Up element, using Score lines with Cricut Design Space, and shapes available in the Cricut Access library.



In the 2nd video, you will learn how to Add Text to personalize your card.
