March 2011 Crop Challenge

Hi everyone! This weekend I was peeking at challenges and Kathryn from Life on the Scrap Beach had some fun ones. I decided to participate in the first one which required the use of white space. It was fun to play around with the idea and I was able to complete a 2-page layout! Alleluia!! I was so excited to actually finish it! The tricky part was that I had mentally committed to using the stickers ( since I'm trying to use what I have this year) and at first I was all "Whaaat? how am I going to incorporate these & not mess it up?!!" but then, with a little help from my friend's son Stephen, voila! It came together. Thank you Stephen!! <---he told me to put the pumpkins INSIDE the cart!. Anywho- if you even read this, thank you & thanks to Kathryn for the challenge!
The circle is canvas & a rub on. Stickers from Jolees.

Stitching on pics are rub-ons also from stash.

The journaling stamp was borrowed. Thanks Mandy!!!
The flower is felt. 

Buttons & brad were from varied brands. I added the twine.

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.

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.
