Award Thank You

I've had a busy week and have been so fortunate to find among my messages that I've received an award from the very kind Sonia from Archiving Angel! I want to say a huge thank you and to pass this along to any one of my followers who'd like to grab the award as well. I feel that picking out a certain few wouldn't to justice to what fellow crafters are doing out there, and I gain so much from every one of you that it's impossible to choose. ( I've done it before & felt terribly uncomfortable) To go on with the award requirements I am to mention 7 things about myself so here goes:
1. I've met some cool people through this blog business and I'm not ashamed to use their names as if I've actually met them in person!
2. I'm not actually ashamed of much anyways- this comes from not taking myself too seriously.
3. I love to paint, draw, and ...
4. I love the images of hands, they tell a lot about a person.
5. I love all kinds of food also!
6. I love languages, even if I don't understand them ( the written word is beautiful to me).
7. I believe God's purpose for us is genuinely beautiful, and this makes all things bearable, for He sustains me.
So if you've read this post, grab on to that lil' award and let us know a bit about yourself too, come on, there's no shame in it!

Flowers with Cricut Design Space, and Cricut Explore Air 2.

Thank you for joining me!
Today I am posting a short tutorial that comes in handy. I cover how to GROUP, ATTACH, ARRANGE and HIDE layers and shapes to maximize the use of your paper!. Using my Cricut Explore Air 2, Design Space and a FREE File: Creative Bug Flowers, I made custom flowers that coordinate perfectly with the papers in my cards.

Recipe: Cricut Explore Air 2, Creative Bug Flowers in several sizes, Flourish Card,Creative Cards, and Design Space Font: Sunday Swirls Bold, Spellbinders Dies: S4-295, and S2-077, Cardstock: Momenta. Other materials from my stash.

I hope this is useful to you, and that it answers some questions you may have! Please let me know what other types of tutorials may be helpful to you. I am happy to oblige!


Cricut Explore Air 2 Floral Thank You Card

Please enjoy this video, I apologize in advance for the abrupt editing, and I appreciate your feedback. I also should have mentioned that I used the fast-cut feature for some of the die cutting, and made this card very quickly. Overall, I am very pleased! Be blessed!

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.
