Faith Cards

I needed a card for a confirmation that's coming up. Instead of making just the confirmation card, I thought I'd make a set of Faith Cards with Paper House Goldmine & Coco Faith Bible Journaling Kit.

 

To make cards from the Faith Bible Jounaling Kit, the only additional supplies you'll need are some coordinating inks, some adhesive, and some white card stock.

Start by cutting 4 card bases (8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/2" to create a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" folded card base).

 

For the above card, you'll need to cut an additional 4" x 5 1/4" piece of white card stock and a 2" x 3 1/2" piece of vellum. 

 

For the above card, you'll need to cut a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of patterned paper, a 3" x  4 1/4" piece of white card stock, and a 2 3/4" x 4" piece of patterned paper.


For the above card, you'll need to cut an additional 4" x 5 1/4" piece of white card stock and a 5 1/4" x 2 1/2" piece of vellum.


For the above card, you'll need to cut an additional 3 3/4" x 4 1/2" piece of white card stock and a 3 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece of patterned paper. 

 

Use adhesive to add your layers to your card bases. For the vellum layers, I like to place adhesive behind the metallic accents on the vellum or behind where clusters of embellishments will be (the embellishments will hide the adhesive). 

Stamp your sentiments (I used stamped sentiments on 2 of the 4 cards).
 

Finally, finish up your cards by adding stickers and die cuts.

This is a really lovely Bible journaling kit, but as you can see, it also works great for some faith based encouragement cards.

Fun in the Sun Scrapbooking Layout

It's May which means a new kit from Scrapbooking Store. This month we're heading to the beach starting with this Fun in the Sun scrapbooking layout.


This month's kit features Simple Vintage Coastal from Simple Stories. This is a soft, muted beach collection that has muted pinks, blues, browns, and greens found throughout. Since it's a coastal themed collection, you'll find lots of sea shells, ships, palm trees, tropical flowers, and map prints. It's grounded with wood grains and sprinkled with flowers. It really is just plain pretty.


The woodgrain paper was the perfect background for my bright blue photos. It also seemed to match the wood of the pier in my photo. For some more color, I framed the layout with a pop of pink map paper.

I clustered a bunch of the stickers from the collection sticker sheet all over the layout to add little spots to draw your eye. I finished up with some journaling and a few more stickers.

Travel Memories Layout

Today I have this Germany travel memories layout, which also happens to be the last layout in my Germany album. 

I like to jot down some of the random things we see, hear, or notice when we travel somewhere. I then put those random things that don't fit with any other photos into a list on the last page of my scrapbook. 

 I also had a bunch of photos and wrappers of some of the fun candy and snacks we tried or brought back as treats for the kids. I put all of those on this last layout, too. 



Thanks for coming along with me on this journey to scrap our trip to Germany. Now that it's done, I can start on the London trip we just got back from.

3 Fast Travel Layouts

I have 3 fast travel layouts to share. These are 3 of the last 4 layouts in my Germany album. 

 

This is the plaza of the area we stayed at in Berlin. Postamer Platz is pretty cool, as it used to be a no man's land with the Berlin Wall running through it. Now it's a vibrant, busy area. There is a marker that runs through the Platz so you can see where the wall was.

 

We had a last beer and bite to eat at an American themed restaurant right next to our hotel. My husband was able to get a currywurst there, so I'm not sure it was too Americanized.



One last stop, the gym at the hotel. It was one of the nicest gyms (not surprising as it was a really nice hotel). 

Next week I'll have my last layout from this trip.

Wander Scrapbooking Layout

I have another Germany layout to share today. This one is a Wander scrapbooking layout. 

 

This layout features an old travel collection from  Kaiser Kraft. When finishing up this album, I also tried to use up what was left of some of the travel collections and embellishments that I bought specifically for this album.

 

This is a memorial church in Berlin. It's always a bit of a balance to take pictures of these beautiful, historic places and still give them the respect they deserve. 



I played around with the journaling a bit on this layout. I used a scrap piece of paper with a bottom border strip to create an empty space perfect for journaling. To finish up, I added a few black travel embellishments, and a sticker with the name of the church on it.

Panorama Punkt Scrapbooking Layout

Last month I finally finished up my album from our trip to Germany (3 years ago!). It feels great to have it finished. Today I'm sharing one of the last pages from the album, this Panorama Punkt scrapbooking layout.

 

The Patterned paper for this layout comes from the February Kit from Scrapbooking Store which features the Just Be You Collection from Echo Park. Other embellishments come from a wide variety of previous kits from the Scrapbooking Store as well. Lots of stash diving to finish this one off.


I also featured the ticket from our trip to the top and some pieces from the Panorama Punkt brochure.

 

I have just a few more Germany layouts to share over the next few weeks. Thanks for going on this journey with me!

Hello Spring Scrapbooking Layout

It's April which means a new kit from Scrapbooking Store. This month's kit is full of bright spring colors, themes, and words. 

 

This month's kit features papers and stickers from Echo Park's Welcome Spring collection. The upgraded embellishment kit has some really fun Thicker alphabet stickers and floral rub-ons. 

Our Frenchie, Stanley, is usually pretty relaxed about everything, but for some reason he does not like RZR rides. Our basset hound loves them, though, and the only thing worse for Stan than a RZR ride is being left home when Kevin gets to go...so poor Stanley goes anyways.
