Imaginisce, Case Study #184, and Hebrews 11:6

I have some birthday cards to make, and decided to link up with Case Study...I fell in love with this card by their March Muse, Noni Nina Andaya, isn't it lovely?

Here is my take on it...

There's Only One You

Supply List:
Imaginisce: My Baby (Girl), Welcome Spring, i-Rock tool and gems
American Crafts: Baker's Twine
Stampin' Up!: Dies (leaves, apothecary label), stamp (Vintage Verses), ink (Basic Black)
Cuttlebug: embossing folder (Cane Back Chair)

Clearly, I was inspired by the pink leaves...but instead of the stitching, I decided to use one of my apothecary die labels. I have had them for a few months now, and haven't even touched them yet! I also added a few gems to the leaves that I cut from vellum. It was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest awhile back, which I think I also pinned.

Now, I don't claim to be a Bible scholar by any means..but recently I was reading Hebrews 11, and I was in tears by the time I finished. So much Faith! But verse 6 really stayed with me...

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Hebrews 11:6

I think that I like it so much because it was key for me. We can not come to Him, and be accepted if we doubt His existence.  Not just His existence, but in who He is, and what He did for us...and it's equally important that we believe He hears and will answer our prayers. That's it, I don't have any long devotion or anything...I just want to encourage you to read the whole chapter if it's been awhile :)

Imaginisce: Spring Themed Projects

This week we're showing off spring themed projects over at Imaginisce. I chose to use the Welcome Spring collection...

A Day in May

Supply List:
Imaginisce: Welcome Spring (Flying Colors, Hello Spring, Hop to it, Die Cut Tags, Butterfly Clear Acrylic Stamp, i-rock tool, i-top tool, 22 mm brad)
American Crafts: White Cardstock, Baker's Twine, Glitter Tape, Knock-Out Border Punch, Aqua Goodness Thickers

I love the bright and happy colors of the Welcome Spring collection!  I started this layout by matting a 4x6 photo on a 6x6 piece of cardstock, and topped it with my title. I then tucked a few different shaped tags/die cuts underneath for a little interest, and to hold my journaling. I used the clear acrylic butterfly stamp and the i-rock tool to make custom embellishments, along wtih the i-top tool for the brad.

Check out the Imaginisce blog all this week to see all of the inspiring spring themed projects!

What I love most about the Bella products, is that you can mix and match collections to customize the theme of your projects. The possibilities are endless. Here, I paired up Lucky Starz and Max with a few older collections to create a baseball themed page. I love how it turned out!

Bella Blvd: Friday Sketch

Today, we're sharing layouts inspired by our first sketch for March over at the Bella Blvd Studio Blog.  The sketch was created by Diana Fisher, and based off of a page from Jennifer Chapin.

Game Night
Supplies:Family Forever: Family Photo, Family Rules, Sunday Brunch, Paper Pieces, Candid Cards, Trinkets, Treasures & Text; Freestyle Sophisticates: Freestyle Gulf; Lucky Starz: Color Wheel High Five Alphas; Designer Tape: Yellow Chevron, Red Chevron

One of my favorite things from the new Family Forever collection is the Paper Pieces. Here, I used several of them for my circle elements. Using a journaling spot for one of my circles helped convert the sketch from 12x12 to 8.5x11. I also used 7 strips of paper instead of nine, and 8 circles instead of 11.

Be sure to stop by Bella Blvd to see 2 more pages inspired by the same sketch!
