heART of Worship Sundays - Faith, Hope, & Love

There has been a lot going on in the world lately...especially with the presidential election a couple weeks ago.  It seems like emotions are out of control.  I have seen people turning on their friends and family because they couldn't see eye to eye on who to vote for.  I think there would be less problems in the world if we would just learn from what the Bible has to say about love and charity.

Today my Bible journaling is in 1 Corinthians 13.
I hope you like what I have to share.

I was thrilled to be able to use the "Amazing God" stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps ....the stamps were perfect for what I was doing because the set included 
Faith, Hope, and Love.

Thank you for stoppping by and...

God Bless You

Tussy Mussy / Potpourri Holder / Gift Card Holder

Does anyone know what a Tussy Mussy (Tussie Mussie) really is?  I didn't so I looked it up....and this really isn't a Tussy Mussy but I will go with that name because everyone else is.

So this all started when I was surfing around YouTube and saw several people making "goodie holders" out of toilet paper rolls.  I found it intriguing but wanted to make something a little more elegant and thought they would be great as potpourri holders.  You could hang them in your bathroom, bedroom, or anywhere around the house (or even in your car!!!).  After making them I had friends say they looked like little purses or gift bags....and cards fit perfectly in them!!!

Well I don't make them out of toilet paper rolls....but they are just as easy.  To learn more, please watch my YouTube tutorial video by CLICKING HERE

heART of Worship Sundays - Joseph And His Coat Of Many Colors

Today is my first actual Bible art journaling and it was truly an experience.  I actually planned on this being in 1 Corinthians 13, but God had other plans...He directed me to Genesis to read about Joseph and his coat of many colors.  While reading it I saw it in a different way than I have in the past.  I realized the message was relavent today.

I hope you watch, listen, and let God touch your heart.

God Bless You

Elegant Shabby Chic Altered Cigar Box

I really love altering cigar boxes....they make beautiful jewelry boxes and home decor.  This is probably one of my favorites so far.  This cigar box is unique in the way it opens.  And of course, I decorated it in my favorite  
I found so many gorgeous things to decorate it with from Creating With Details ....they have everything you need to make altered cigar boxes!!!  That beautiful rose paper is Wild Rose Studio "Letters From Paris".  I had originally bought it from Marker Pop! but I can't find it there now, but luckily Amazon still has some.
To see how I made this please visit my YouTube channel and watch my tutorial 

A challenge for this...really!!!

Sweet Princess Wishes

Hi Everyone!!!  Well I'm excited to annouce that I have been chosen to be a Guest Designer for the October challenge at Sherri Baldy's My Besties 3D & More Challenge Blog !!!

I really wanted to make something special and I think I did a good job thanks to this elegant Sherri Baldy Princess Bestie 3D image and matching digital papers.

I used my Cricut Explore to "print & cut" this adorable 3D image, added some sparkle with Sakura Stardust Gelly Roll pens, and a gem in her crown.  I added some flowers and pearls to match the color scheme.  The butterfly die cut was colored with Smooch in colors that I felt complimented the papers.  I used 3 of the papers from the Princess Bestie digital paper pack to make this beautiful easel card.

For some wonderful inspiration
AND a challenge

And to see more of Sherri Baldy's adorable images and papers be sure to visit her stores

I love this card so much it would be crazy to not enter in a few here they are...
