You Are My Sunshine...

Hello! I made another Julie Nutting doll tag. I love paper piecing stamped images back together. I used the "Dita" doll stamp and some Maggie Holmes paper by American Craft.  The sunshine stamp and sentiment are from Unity Stamp Company. The flowers were in my stash and are probably from Prima too!
I used Prisma pencils to shade after piecing the doll. I think these tags will be perfect to save and hang on a gift bag when the occasion arises.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Heartfelt Creations August Blog Hop

Hello! Welcome to the August Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop. I made an A2 sized card this month using paper, stamps and dies from the Butterfly Medley collection. This is one of my favorite collections. The purples, oranges, greens, and blues are so beautiful for a late summer card. I used a card panel from the paper collection and adhered to a white cardstock base. I stamped my butterfly in Archival Black ink  on watercolor paper, and used the coordinating die to cut it out. I used Prima watercolors to color the image. When dry, I added some Stardust Stickles to the wings and adhered on the card.
The Hop starts 8am EST on Friday August 25th and closes Monday August 28th at 11.59pm EST.
The winner will be announced on the HC blog and on FB on Wednesday August 30th.  A random comment will be chosen to  receive a  $25 gift certificate to shop at Heartfelt Creations.
Here is a list of blog hop participants:

Sprinkling You With Joy...

Hello! Today I have a card using The Stamps Of Life stamp set and dies, donuts2stamp. I used the dies to make the donut and then sponged Antique Linen distress ink for the bottom, and Picked Raspberry distress ink for my icing. Stamped my chocolate sprinkles and sentiment in Walnut Stain distress ink.
This is a quick and simple birthday card to make. I plan on making them in every color! So fun!

Thanks for stopping by!

Collect Beautiful Moments...

Exited to share my first Prima Julie Nutting doll. I created a tag from some cardboard. I paper pieced her skin tones using old papers from a book. The rest of the patterned papers are from Crate Paper's Bloom collection. The pink flower was made using dyed coffee filters. I added Prill beads to the center. Not sure what I will do with this ginormous tag, but it was so much fun to make!

Thanks for stopping by,

He watches over you...


Hello. Sharing some bible journaling today. I am currently working on a two week devotional from Illustrated Faith. It is the I am strong kit. This journaling is based on Psalm 121.  I used watercolors from Prima's tropicals collection. I outlined everything with a black pitt pen. I also added some white flecks with a white gel pen to the orange sky. Here is Psalm 121:

Psalm 121

A song of ascents.

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
    where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
    the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip—
    he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel
    will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord watches over you—
    the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
    nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all harm—
    he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
    both now and forevermore.

Bible Journaling: Bravery and so much gratitude

Hi, there! Sharing another bible journaling entry with you. I am currently doing the "Uninvited" study by Lysa Terkeurst, so my entries will reflect what I am studying in the next several weeks. Isaiah 53. A powerful reminder of the rejection that Jesus faced through out his lifetime and the suffering he willingly took on for me. What a blessing to know that when I feel rejected or fearful, I can look to him to for strength and bravery.  Countless times in my life I have rejected him, looking for acceptance everywhere but through him. And despite it all, he forgives me and wants me.

I used gelatos to color this page. I also used stamps from Bossy Joscie and the Illustrated Faith kit, "I Am Strong". I added details with a white gel pen and then stamped "thank you" in white ink onto the black hill at the bottom of the page.

Bible Journaling: Living Loved

Hello! I have recently dived into bible journaling and decided to share what I have been doing on my blog. I found that I was having trouble getting back into a creative groove. Mixing my faith and my art seemed like a good place to start, and I am so glad that I decided to mix these to parts of my life together!
I am currently doing a bible study in my women's group. "Uninvited" by Lysa Terkeurst.  The first session talks about living loved, so I wanted to journal Ephesians 1:4-5.I used paper elements from Bella Blvd./Illustrated Faith "She Blooms" collection.
I hope you enjoy looking at some of my journaling and I welcome any cool tips or tricks that you may have to offer, since I am a newbie at this. :)
