punch collage love (day 5)

Lately, I’ve been wanting to make a punch collage. 

Ali Edwards’ inspired me by her examples, here and here.  

I have a friend, who also turns 40 this week, so I thought I would make something special for her 40th. 

My spin on this project, instead of filling the entire frame with punches, I included a set of her favorite verses from Psalm 139.  I also alternated every other bird, using a 3D foam dot, to add some dimension to the page. 

Basically, other than the new frame, this was created simply using supplies from my scrap stash.  VERY EASY and VERY ADDICTIVE!  (I have all sorts of color combos and gift recipients in mind.)  It’s so versatile too!  You could use annnnny of your favorite punches, or even your favorite die cut machine. 

I haven’t given this to her yet, because we’ve been snowed-in….and I don’t think she visits my blog….so hopefully she will be surprised! 

Only 5 stinkin days till I turn 40!!!! 

not ashamed

my dad’s birthday is today! 

as part of his gift, i made this for him to hang in his home office. 

  • “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ; for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” Romans 1:16

that is his favorite verse, and the colors are the same as his office. 

looking forward to celebrating with him tomorrow during the Steelers vs. Browns game.  he loves the Browns and we love the Steelers. 

Go STEELERS! 

love is…

love-is-2
this is a gift that i made for my inlaws, for their 50th wedding anniversary. 

the verse has been printed out, the lace is actually from my grandmother’s craft stash, and the birds were punched out, using a martha stewart punch. 

it reads:

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails.”

the sun is shining today!  enjoy!!!!

love-is-1

well, it’s friday! 

spent today at a scrapbooking crop at our church. 

i have many old pictures that are just waiting to be scrapped….so my goal was quantity, not quality. 

this layout is from 2000.  our church playgroup took a tour of a local armory.  it was really hot out that day and my son was rather grumpy.  when it came time to take a ride in a Humvee, (which every kid could hardly wait for), nick said that he did NOT want to go….because, there wasn’t any air conditioning in the Humvee.  can you believe that???  he really dug his heels in and refused to smile for pictures or anything else.
