Bible Journaling:Romans 12:15

Ever have a verse that just sticks out to you for several days.  Romans 12:15 has been in my brain so I decided to art journal it and reflect a little more on putting it into practice!

Life sometimes throws some hard situations that way and although we like to share our art we may not want to share the personal journaling.  This is where SRM's Le Pens come in can use them on the back side of your cardstock and they don't bleed thru and you don't have to share your feelings with the world.  I did just that for this piece!  I let God's word do the talking to share and reflected on my own on the backside.

I LOVE the Big Faith stamps (and am so excited for the new releases!!!) and that was the focus for my verse.  But I also used several different stamp sets for my doodling!  

The Doodle Flowers set is so versatile and worked perfectly for this! After stamping with it - I then used gelatos to add some messy color.  I also used the Life is Good set for my hearts and Springtime for my butterflies.

Kitten Smitten Cards

Kitten Smitten  from Doodlebug Design is a great collection for making cards!  It's packed with cute punny phrases and tons of options to take those phrases and make a darling card!  I was having so much fun, I made six of them!!!

This one features a combination of patterned paper, stickers, shape sprinkles, and washi tape.  The washi tape was a last minute addition but I think it absolutely makes the card!  The dark contrast to the patterned paper is fabulous!

One of the things that really makes this collection pop is the black included in it - it just adds so much!  For this one I used patterned papers, shape sprinkles (seriously, how cute is that yellow cat!?!), cardstock stickers, and the new tags!

This was the first card I made!  I knew I wanted to use the "You've cat to be kitten me right meow!" I thought it would work for a variety of cards: get well, congrats, or for someone down on their luck.  I went with Congrats for this round!  In addition to the patterned paper you'll find more shape sprinkles and some Doodle Pops this time!

I was excited to incorporate the Meow washi tape into this one!  It's a white base so it will work with any color scheme!  I also added in a border from the newly designed This & That sticker sheet!

The new Cute Clips are a great addition to your embellishing - The pink cat adds just the right amount of pink to that top corner! 

My last card uses my favorite paper from this collection - the one that looks like yarn of all colors unwound!  I used another one of the adorable Doodlepops for this one along with stickers, tags, and Odds & Ends!

As you can see I had a blast making these and the variety of available embellishments made for endless options!  If you are a cat lover or just have lots of cat loving friends you are going to want to give this collection a spin!

My Creative Scrapbook - Creative Kit Layouts

The Creative Kit at My Creative Scrapbook this month is a great one for all those summer photos!  It's packed with Echo Park Paper and full of vibrant colors and patterns!  Here's the layouts I created with it!

This is my only multi-photo layout which you know is unusual for me!  With the move, I had to work with what I it was a lot of single photos this month!

My 3 year old loves popsicles. This kit is packed with lots of popsicle embellishments so I had to make use of that and tells his story!

I also wanted to highlight a picture of my daughter in front of our beautiful peonies.  We will miss those bushes blooming every year but we've captured it in a scrapbook page at least!

Although it is great for summer themed layouts - it's also great for just general themed stuff too!  I used it to highlight the going away party for my daughter (bright colors will make us less sad to look at it right!?!)

If you haven't already reserved your copy - this kit will go quick - so hop over and check it (and all the others out) at My Creative Scrapbook
