Be Joyful

Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in EVERYTHING by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the PEACE OF GOD, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:4-7

These are verses I memorized years ago and they are written on my heart. There are times when I still need to remember not to be anxious, but I eventually listen to my heart saying these verses. I didn't really understand what the "peace of God" was until I experienced it. It's having peace inside you, even when you're going through heartbreaking situations and trials. It does "surpass ALL understanding" and you know it comes from GOD alone. Praise the Lord for His wonderful promises!


I love, love, love what I do. I am passionate about the things I create and the talents God has placed in me. I SO appreciate the time you take to look at my things and the comments you all leave me!

Blessings to you!

One Sheet Wonder 8x8

Last year I created a one sheet wonder using an 8x8 piece of paper. I've been wanting to create more of these and just finished up two of them that I'll be posting. I thought I would also posts the instructions if anyone could use them.

I like the 8x8 version because there's only 9 cards to make and it doesn't take as long as the large version. It's also a nice amount of cards for gift giving.

I like to do these with "special" papers that I love and tend to not want to use them because they are so special. I don't mind using an 8x8 piece to create something really special.

I actually created 2 of these at the same time with the new designer series paper, Springtime Vintage.

This is the set I did using blues:




This is the set I did using greens:



I also decided to create a box for each of them to put in for gift giving.



I used the "A2 card box" located on Split Coast Stampers in the resources/tutorials section. Here is the link if you would like it. I increased the size of the box to fit the 9 cards and envelopes.

I'm not sure if anyone is interested, but I'll give instructions for the one sheet wonder, the individual cards, and the adjusted box measurements that I used. I'll do these in separate posts so it can be a little easier to find on here. Hope you find these useful!

I love to create!

Kathy

  4. Hi Lynne, Thank you for the compliment! The post that shows the individual cards has all the supplies I used at the bottom of the post. The post that says layout shows how to cut the 8x8 paper for the cards. Then you just look at the cards to show how to put them together. Does that help? Kathy
