Craftig : Craft Is Good

Have you heard about this new site? Craftig...I was over at Shimelles blog and she had a post up about it and I thought I would share! This is a site where anyone can post stories about great craft sites that are out there on the web. And yes there is a section just for scrapbookers! So check it is new and growing. What a great resource for everything crafty!

Layouts, Cards and a Wall hanging

This is a catch up post! I was busy this week creating but did not have a lot of time to share. I made a few cards for friends this week.

This is a layout I did for the Digichicks sketch of the week

I put together this wall hanging for a dear friend that needed some encouragement.

And lastly I did this layout today for another challenge over at the digichick.

I have a couple of paper scrapped layouts that are almost done...just need some finishing touches and then I can share those as well!

We are getting back into routines around here and easing in to our school year. And just to add to the mix I signed up for Shimelles Learn Something New Everyday class that starts Sept. 1! I love Shimelles classes and can't wait to get into this one!

I even hit the scrapbook store to get a cool album for this class...It is a Maya road Chipboard album in a really neat size! I will share it soon!

Have a super weekend and happy scrapping!!

Sketch 71, Shimmerz and a contest

Sketch 71 is up over at Triple The Sketch!! This time we got to play with Shimmerz! What a fun product! Head over there and check out all the wonderful layouts that the design team came up with! Lot's of inspiration! Then create something and enter to win some shimmerz of your own!

For my layout I went back in time to do Claires 8th Birthday (she is 12 now!)

I decided to put the shimmerz on my flowers and also on the butterfly. I also gave some shine to the cut out flower branch.

Then came the fun part...I began to experiment. I took the heidi swapp ghost letters and started by putting the shimmerz right on the letter. This did not look as bright as I wanted so I let it dry and then painted over it with MM pink paint. I let this dry and noticed as it dried it had a crackled look. I then used the shimmerz over top of the paint and it really made the letters pop! I really like the crackled look too! So it pays to never know what you'll come up with!

So have fun scrapping and good luck if you enter the contest!!

Wall Art

I love creating gifts for others....especially ones that focus on Gods word. Today I am going to share 2 very special gifts that I recently made. The first one I made for a good friends son who was baptized. This is his favorite verse.

The next one I just finished today and we will be giving it to the missionary family whose house we are watching for the next two weeks.

Creating for His glory is always a blessing to me!! I love praying and coming up with the perfect verse to share and gift someone with!
May you be blessed as you create for His glory today!

Sketch 67 at TTS

Triple the Sketch has sketch 67 up and the design team did another amazing job using it! Here is my take on the sketch for this week. Go over and get some inspiration for your scrapping this weekend! Triple the sketch. I used bazzill kraft cardstock which I am loving and using a lot lately! And just some ribbon and daisy bucket paper that I punched with my CM heart punches. The stamp is from Our Daily Bread. Simple and cute!
