A Couple Fun Halloween Layouts!

Halloween is just 4 weeks away! It's time to get those costumes out and see who is going to wear what this year. It is so much fun to see the little princesses, super heros and annimals each year. Be sure to take lots of pictures so you can remember these times years from now.

Once you have your pictures, Close To My Heart complements with coordinating paper will help you quickly put those photos into beautiful layouts. The Scaredy Cat complements are Kraft colored cardstock weight stickers that add a lot of punch.

Get ready to be inspired by these two layouts created by the corporate artists.


Don't you love how this little guy got into character. I can almost hear his ROAR!


What a cutie!! What are your kids/grandkids? Wouldn't their pictures be adorable on these layouts. Don't forget to take pictures in several different poses. I love looking back at the precious expressions on the faces of my little girl who isn't so little anymore. The time flies by so fast!

Happy haunting,
Rebecca

Love Bible Journaling

A few weeks ago, I discovered a new art form that combines Bible Study with creativity. Bible Journaling is creating artwork in the margins or even over the text of your Bible that help to illustrate the content. It could be as simple as highlighting key verses or involve multiple layers of craft mediums. The best way to describe it is to show you some examples. Click here to see my Bible Journaling Pinterst board.

I have always learned best when I write and doodle my way through content, so I thought this would be an excellent way to get deeper into the word. You can start with any Bible, but I bought a ESV journaling Bible so I'd have the nice wide margins to work in.


For my first Bible journaling effort, I choose I John 4:8, "Whoever does not love does not know God, for God is Love. I made the prototype shown above on cardstock while I waited for my Bible to come in. I can't wait to put it into the margin of my Bible --- I'll post a link as soon as I get it done.



I used the LOVE stamp from the #30yearsofhappy stamp set with Pixie ink. I also used the Be Still (A1141) stamp set and masked off all the words except "Know God". If you want to learn more about Bible Journaling, check out the Journaling Bible Community Facebook Group.

Be sure to check back tomorrow, when Ellen at www.cardmonkeysjungle.com will share another project made using this fun stamp set.

There are only 2 days left to get your hands on one of this stamp set. Here's how: Go to my CTMH website and pick out several stamp sets you love with total retail of $30 or more. This will be easy because there are so many great new sets to pick from! When you view your shopping cart, you will be prompted to add #30yearsofhappy for FREE!



In the meantime, keep creating!

Rebecca
