The Good Life Today

Scrapbook Layout created for Scrapbook Nerd  - THE GOOD LIFE TODAY -

Hi there!

Hope you all are well!  This week's assignment for Scrapbook Nerd was to create projects based on everyday moments, which is perfect for the way i document our lives.  So i went i pulled a picture of what i see on a normal basis to create this page.

The background was first created using Distress Oxides so that they match papers from various Paige Evans collections. I chose a masculine palette to match the picture i am using.  Once the inks had been applied with a foam applicator so that they look like strips of color, a Kaisercraft stencil and a baby wipe was used to create the starry background.   Some ink was diluted and added to the bottom of each color strip followed by stamped images of stars using the Turn The Page stamp set and the respective inks.

While the inks completely dried, I went ahead and backed the cut out (created with a Just Nick Studio cut file) with papers from a few of Paige Evans collections (in case you don't know,  i have them all, have hoarded most of them, and love them all!!!).  A bit of foam adhesive creates the dimension look of the title.

After setting the title on the background,  the picture was backed and layered with the same papes used on the title.   Now to embellish, i went through all the collection pulling stars embellishments from papers, washi tapes and even fussy cutting some.  Gotta love the little rub ons stars from the latest Pick Me Up collection.

I pulled a few embellishments from the collections so that they will match the colors of the background, and even managed to tie a heart charm (form Oh My Heart ) to one of the paper clips from the Take Me Away collection.  Here is the final layout:

Love how this turned out!  I love documenting everyday moments,  as they are the ones that we take for granted sometimes, in a way that they become stars in my scrapbook journey.

I Am Woven By His Love

Bible Journal spread created for Citrus Twist Kits  - I AM WOVEN BY HIS LOVE -

Hi there friends,

Nathalie with you today sharing a bit of my bible Journaling journey with you all.   If you follow my blog or work, then you would know that i color in my Bible, but just recently started sharing a few of my faith related projects.

This month's Citrus Twist Kits Grace Box is filled withso many beautiful pieces that it was so easy to put together this spread.    As soon as i saw the "WOVEN" die cut in the ephemera pack, i knew that i wanted to document Psalm 140:13-14:

"For you formed my inward parts,
you knitted me together in my mother's womb.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well."

First i created the background for the page using the stencil set included in the kit, and Vicki Boutin's acrylic pop paints.   To get the soft look of the flowers, the paint was applied using a baby wipe.  Once it dried,  a bit of detailing was added using a black fine liner; this helps define the stenciled flowers.

To create the title of this page, I used a combination of the stamp set and alphas included in this month's CTK Grace Box, and then added the large "WOVEN" die cut in it.   All those puffy stickers are perfect to add some embellishments to the page.    I am not a clip-kinda-girl, but the kit had all this pieces of fabric that matched the colors perfectly, so I tied one of the pieces to a heart clip, and mark the page with this clip.

I love how this turned out!  The soft flower stencils form the perfect background for the sentiment  that this page conveys!.

Stop by the Citrus Twist Kits Shop to check this month's Grace Box.   It is so versatile that you will have plenty of goodies to transform your Bible entries and faith memory keeping.

AS always  let me know if you have questions on this was put together.
