Bible Journaling Worship & Praise by Karen


Hello!  Karen here today to share some of my Bible Journaling with you. 


One of the main reason I Bible journal is because it gives me the time to meditate on specific words of scripture. While I am coloring or painting or stamping, I am repeating scripture in my mind and contemplating the meaning of these precious words. The creative process draws me in and allows me to linger longer in the Word. My page today gave me the chance to target specific words and think about the many reasons to worship and praise our amazing God.


Psalm 29 is a psalm of worship and praise. It wasn't difficult to find many of the words used in this psalm in stamp form on SRM's two "wordfetti-style" faith stamp sets - Daily Devotion and Scripture Notes. These two sets contain multiple words that can be used in a variety of ways. 


After lettering "worship" and coloring it in with marker and watercolor twists, I added several word stamps to emphasize some of the words in the Psalm. I also added a star stamp from another set, Child of God. I created the background using the watercolor twists and a water brush. Then, I added a few highlights with my white pen. I really like how this page turned out and am grateful for the time to worship and praise God through Bible journaling. Be blessed!

Stamped Gift Boxes by Samantha


Hello! Samantha here today to share some stamped gift boxes for cute and easy Christmas gifting. 

  
For these all you'll need are some kraft boxesSeasonal Plans Planner Stamp setwatercolor pencilsjute twine, and stamping ink. 



The kraft boxes come in lots of different sizes, perfect for wrapping up small gifts like jewelry, gift cards, and Christmas ornaments. Just simply stamp your images while the box is flat, then assemble and gift. 


 If you're creating more than one box for the same person, stack up the boxes and add a little jute to tie them all together. 



If you're like me and don't love wrapping, these sweet stamped gift boxes are a fantastic way to package up gifts without ever touching a roll of wrapping paper!

Count Your Blessings by Jennifer


Hello everyone, Jenn here! I am sharing a page I completed in my Bible during the Thanksgiving holiday week. I love looking back over the year on both Thanksgiving and New Years eve remembering all the many many blessings I have been given.




I love the clear stickers from SRM and I thought what better way than to use them in my Bible! What makes them so awesome is you can see text through the image...making it perfect for those concerned with covering Bible text. Before I began I knew I wanted to commemorate Thanksgiving with some festive leaves so I stamped leaves with StazOn ink. Once dry I colored them in with the Marvy ColorIn watercolor pencils. To intensify the color I went in with my water brush and activated the pigment from the pencils. This was such a fun relaxing time I was able to just sit and soak in the words God wanted to speak to me. I really took my time and journaled a lot and even included a prayer which I started with the Jesus stamp from the Daily Devotion Stamp set.



I hope and pray this reminds you to slow down during this busy chaotic holiday season and really count your blessings. Write them down in a journal or Bible and come back to this when you feel lost, defeated and overwhelmed. God is so very very good!

Happy National Christmas Card Making Day by Giorgia!


Did you know that today is National Christmas Card making day?
Hello SRM friends, Giorgia here and today I want to share Clean & Simple style card I created for Christmas. 

This card is really simple to make, also by beginners: you only need cardstock, an embossing folder, washi tape and, of course, the amazing Christmas themed SRM products!



To realize this card I created a card base where I layered a white cardstock embossed with a snowflake pattern. Then I added a strip of gold glittered washi. Finally I added a gold glitter circle where I adhered a sticker from Fancy Sentiment/Christmas. Adhere it with foam tape to create dimension. I think the white and gold combination is so fancy and elegant!


In few minutes, with SRM stickers, you can create a lovely gift for the holidays! I hope to have give you an idea.

Until next time,
ciao, Giorgia

And now let's hear from Shanna in her own words! 

Hello fellow caffeinated crafters!!

I adore this sentiment, and have used it on a variety of projects.  I will list the supplies below I used for this particular one :)
I hope you enjoy it, and happy hopping!!

Festive Thank You Card Gift Set by Karen


A set of cute thank you notes is a great gift for teachers or friends. I'm still a believer in sending personalized thank you notes and I know there are others out there who appreciate those handwritten notes, too. Using SRM's stickers makes producing several sets really easy. My cards have a cute Christmas theme and will be given to my daughter's teachers. I think they will appreciate them!


I found a bright striped paper in my holiday stash and used it as the main background for this card set. I think layers add so much to cards, especially when you want to keep it simple like these. A layer of black behind the white center makes it pop! I incorporated the cute star / list stamp from the School Days Planner set and added traditional Christmas colors behind the clear stickers to match the theme. The Thank You sentiment is from a non-holiday Stickers By the Dozen set and the cute gingerbread man is from the Stickers By the Dozen Gingerbread Man set. I also grabbed my pre-cut scalloped circle shapes from my stash. You could use a punch or a die cut to make these quickly, too. 


A set of 7-10 cards plus envelopes fit nicely in an A7 size clear box. I added red and silver crinkly paper to my box, too, which really makes it look festive. Nothing more is needed but a bit of twine to tie it all together.

Hello! Melanie here today to share a tray I decorated for the upcoming Christmas holiday. I used two different SRM Press sticker sheets: Quick Cards/Peace and Fancy Sentiments/Christmas.


 The clear backing helps the stickers to blend seamlessly with the patterned papers.  


Adding a few embellishments here and there completes the look for simple, yet classic decoration for our home this holiday season.


Happy Holidays!

Be Merry Candle Gift by Shelly


Hey y'all! Shelly, here.
Today I'm sharing a simple gift idea with you!


I started with my candle jar and simply wrapped some wired burlap ribbon around it. After I used some red jute twine and tied it around the burlap. Easy, right?!...Next, I used a festive holly die cut with green cardstock. Which I layered two times. 


To finish things off, I added 'be merry' to a circle die cut piece using kraft cardstock and punched a hole at the top. Once done, I added everything to my jar and tied things off. Simple yet makes for a sweet gift, yeah?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

Home Decor with SRM Vinyl by Shanna


Hello Crafty friends!!  Shanna here, and today I am showing off a fun and easy desktop easel and a canvas that I personalized with the ever-so-versatile SRM Vinyl!


I found the easel at my local Wal-Mart and fell in love with it....I love the look of chalkboards, but don't really enjoy the messiness of chalk.  So I figured I would create a faux-chalk look with white vinyl on the black chalkboard side of my mini-easel!  


I love how it turned out!  I plan on displaying it on my mantel off and on throughout the year, because let's be honest.... A family of 5 is ALWAYS and adventure!!

The Canvas was an extra I had from a different project and I have been eyeing the "family rules" idea for a while now.  I used a file from the silhouette store and sized it to the size of the canvas.  I prepared the canvas first by painting it with black acrylic paint to get the "chalkboard look".  I really like how it cam out and will definitely be proudly displaying it in my home.

Thanks for stopping by!  
See you soon,
