CITRUS TWIST KITS : SEPTEMBER GRACEBOX

Hello there again! So excited to share with you what I have created in my journaling bible with the September Grace Box kit. Each month, I always look forward for GraceBox and see what God has installed for me through my art & craft process. I love spending my time in God's presence and allows Him to speak <3 font="">

Without further a due, let me share with you my creative process on how I created in my bible....

PSALM 145:8-9 
The Lord is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.

The Lord is good to all, and his mercy is over all that he has made.

Firstly, I used a plastic card and spread Nuvo Moussed onto the page. I really love the Nuvo Mousse. as it is fast drying and it gives a metallic finishing too.  


Once that is dried, I spread some gesso on top of the Nuvo Mousse. I wanted to add a little texture and fill up the gaps with it. 

 Next, I took out the Simple Stories bits & pieces and begin to position onto my page. 
Once I'm happy with the positioning, I adhered them down and continued with stamping. 


To finish up, I filled the top and bottom portion with brush lettering & more stamping to complete the look. 

Here are the close-up shots : 



Here are two more entries that I created with September GraceBox...



Thank you for letting me share today! Be blessed :)

Crate Paper Design Team : Fringed Bookmark

Hello again! Today, I have a sweet looking bookmark to share with you. I created it with Crate Paper's newest collection called Gather by Maggie Holmes. This bookmark is really easy to create. In the 6x6 paper pad, there's this paper called Pure Joy that has diagonal stripes.

All I did was to cut the individual stripes out. Next, I snipped fringes at the bottom of each stripes. Once done, I adhered them line by line onto my bookmark base. Completed the look with pretty stickers. 

I love the fact that this bookmark looks like a piñata too! Thanks for coming by. Xoxo Jessy

Supplies:
Maggie Holmes Gather 6x6 paper pad

Maggie Holmes Design Team : Love You Always

I have a several butterflies from my last project so I decided to use the balance to create another layout. It's absolutely fun to see how you can use the same set of butterflies on two different layouts. 

 This clean & simple layout is really easy to put together. To begin, I cut diagonal stripe from a patterned paper and adhered them at the top and bottom of my layout. Next, I positioned the photo right at the middle -bottom part of the layout. Then I slowly added the die-cut butterflies by layering them onto each other. Sure love the touch of the tiny paper flowers in the middle of the butterflies too. A little dimension is always good! For the top left, I layered a couple of ephemera and floral stickers. Also included a die-cut floral from Maggie's previous collection called Confetti. I love how all her collections can be mixed + matched easily! 



Supplies: 
Maggie Holmes Bloom 12x12 Paper - Ribbons
Maggie Holmes Bloom 12x12 Paper - Sweet Rose
Maggie Holmes Bloom Ephemera Die-Cuts
Maggie Holmes Bloom 6x12 Accent Stickers
Maggie Holmes Bloom Tiny Paper Flowers
Maggie Holmes Bloom Foiled Clear Stickers
Maggie Holmes Bloom 12x12 Chipboard Stickers

 Thank you for taking time to stop by! Have a lovely week!

Crate Paper Design Team : Happy Birthday

Birthdays are one of my favorite occasions to celebrate! And it is the fav for my eldest daughter too. She still gets all excited whenever she sees a birthday cake simply because she enjoys singing the "Happy Birthday" song. She is just cute like that! With that in mind, I decided to create a birthday layout just for her. 

 As always, I get my inspirations in many forms and one of them is by "studying" the products. When I was browsing the Cute Girl collection, I was drawn to this patterned paper called Rainbows. I absolutely love how colorful the stripes are. Somehow those stripes reminded me of piñata & thought it would be fun to create alpha piñata! Yes, that's how my mind works! Haha. And with that in mind, I instantly got an idea to hand-cut each alpha to spell  "HAPPY BIRTHDAY". I love to hand-cut alpha when I was in primary school and that brought back a lot of memories to me. Truly enjoyed the hand-cutting process & it's pretty therapeutic to me too :) 


Once I'm done with the cutting, I spread each alpha & arranged them evenly to fit on the white cardstock. I love how the colors popped. The photo of my daughter blowing her birthday candles adhered in the middle row really made the photo stood out! And by adding the cute embellishments like chipboard stickers & accent stickers all around the photo added more fun & great dimension to the layout. 


Here are the close-up shots shot in different angles... 
TIP: To make the hand-cut alpha stand out a little more, use a pencil or black fine-tip pen to trace the outer-line.

What I love most about this layout was I managed to create this layout in a short time and with minimal products. Perfect for a mama like me who has very little time on hand. Love how it turned out! I think I may need to frame this up :)

Maggie Holmes Design Team : Bookmark

 Hello lovely friends! 

It's always fun to dig out Maggie's older collections. I love to revisit these collections because they give me fresh new ideas on how to approach the products again in a different perspective. 

A couple months back, I created some brush lettering bookmarks for my church friends and they were very well received. With the same idea in mind, I decided to use Maggie Holmes products to create a bookmark too. I absolutely love the end result of my bookmark. I truly love the pop of colours against the b&w stripe paper. The different textures and dimensions on the bookmark gave an interesting look as well. And that pretty tassel sure completed the look! 

Supplies:
Maggie Holmes Shine 6x6 Paper Pad
Maggie Holmes Shine 12x12 Chipboard Sticker 
Maggie Holmes Shine 6x12 Accent Stickers 
Maggie Holmes Bloom Puffy Thickers - Grow 
Maggie Holmes Confetti Tassels 

Have a terrific day!

MAGGIE HOLMES DESIGN TEAM : JOURNALING BIBLE

Whenever I create in my journaling bible, I'd use something flat so that my bible would be able to close well. I love that in the Bloom collection there are a lot of embellishments that you can use. And these pretty alpha stickers are suitable for bible journaling.  Before I begin, I will choose a bible verse to journal. It certainly help to speed things up and also keep me focus on what I want to create.

1 Peter 4:8 
Above all, keep loving one another earnestly since love covers a multitude of sins. 
Just before I adhere the alpha stickers onto the page, I arranged them to get an idea of the end result. I started of with the LOVE ephemera pieces, followed by the gold glitter Thicker and completed the page with the petal Thickers. Also used the gold foil stickers & heart chipboard to enhance the details. Lastly, I spritzed green mist onto the page. 


Supplies: 
Maggie Holmes Bloom Ephemera pieces (LOVE)
Maggie Holmes Bloom Glitter Thickers - Happy Gold (one)
Maggie Holmes Bloom Thickers - Petal (another)
Maggie Holmes Bloom 12x12 Chipboard Stickers (glitter heart)
Maggie Holmes Bloom Gold Foil Stickers (cross + heart)
Maggie Holmes Bloom Accent Stickers (more of this)

Pinkfresh Studio Design Team : Journaling Bible + Layout

Hello again! So excited to share with you my latest creations featuring Indigo Hills. This collection is really stunning in real life. There are so many things I like in this collection, can't seem to choose my favorite. Lol. And of course this collection is very versatile - think scrapbook, handmade cards, planners, project life, bible journaling, etc. 
Let me share with my first creation. I was given the opportunity to design a faith based stamp set called "You Are Worthy". Absolutely grateful when I get such opportunity! So I decided to use the stamp onto my journaling bible. I love how the paper embellishments, puffy stickers & the alpha stickers go so well on my bible page. 
 
Now onto my second creation. I really love the fact that this collection has pre-made pages where you can just adhere photo(s) & embellishments onto the page and you are pretty much done. Pages like these are perfect for a busy mama like me who absolutely enjoy crafting time whenever I can. It is very therapeutic to me! 
I hope you like my creations & hope these projects will inspire you to create. Have a great weekend!
