Altered Record Case

A good friend of mine has a daughter who is getting married, well, today!  She had me make a card receiving spot nestled inside an altered record case. 

I sewed little pockets and added them to make the case into a suitcase.  I also distressed travel stickers and added them to the outside of the case.  I used some printed maps and a little passport to dress up the inside.  Then I stretched the pink satin ribbon across the top and hung the letters with mini clothe pins.  The letters were cut with the Cricut Imagine.

Jesus Phrase Book

Here are some pictures from a Jesus phrase-book that I made last year.  I made all of the papers, images, and letters with the Cricut Imagine using the Imagine More Cartridge.
I used the Bind-it-All to make it into a mini book.  The book pages are made out of flattened, empty toilet paper rolls.  The phrase tags are made out of upcycled cereal box cardboard and covered with paper with the printed words on them.  Each page is inked and I used fibers to accent the binding.  The song that is spread throughout the pages is, I Surrender All.

40 Days In The Word

Hi all!
My Tuesday Bible Study group is studying Rick Warren's 40 Days in the Word and part of this study is to do a group project inspired by Micah 6:8,

Micah 6:8

The Message (MSG)
 8But he's already made it plain how to live, what to do,
   what God is looking for in men and women.
It's quite simple: Do what is fair and just to your neighbor,
   be compassionate and loyal in your love,
And don't take yourself too seriously—
   take God seriously.

As a group we are making care packages for people in the military that are family members of our church members.  In addition to that we are making care packages for local nursing homes.  As part of these care packages, we will be making some hand made cards for the recipients as well as some blank cards to encourage the military people to write their families. 

We want to show these people they are not forgotten and that we want to love them, even if from a distance.

There is a list of projects, for your friends and family, of suggestions for ways to bless your community!  Check it out!

I will try to post some pics of the cards when we finish them.
