He Is Our Papa

Father’s Days is 10 days away. Before we left Ohio for our long trip to Indonesia, I managed to finish a special project for my husband’s gift.

He is a very special man of God! We love him so much. I am forever thankful to God for giving Dave as my husband and Papa to our daughters. He is just amazing!

A while ago I shared a sneak peek of the My Crush Book for Him I made for our special Papa. This mini album is just perfect for gift and keepsake. All you need is pictures. Each page is designed for you to add picture or journaling. And there is lots of possibilites for you to embellish or decorate the pages, too.

And today I’d love to share the every page I embellished, added pictures and journals. Each page tells the sweet story about him since the first day of he became a father, the day our first daughter was born until Easter 2015.

I hope this can give you some ideas for your special one on the Father’s Day!

Thank you for visiting today! Have a fun Summer!


All supplies are from Close To My Heart.

Bible Journaling: Encouragements On A Trip

This week is our second week in Indonesia. It took a whole week for all of us to adjust with the time. The biggest challenges for my daughters are the language and the food. But they are learning some new survival phrases since they got here.

Honestly for me this reverse re-entery is harder than I expected. But I am thankful for the encouragements I received from the Lord when I read His word and I am so thankful for a lot of friends and family who are praying for us during this trip.

I take some of my ESV Journaling Bible and Bible Journaling supplies on this trip :) And here are some of the blessings I journaled this week:

His word is forever!

SOUS Die Cut Challenge: About My Home

Today I am sharing my project I created for this week Die Cut Challenge: Home Sweet Home at Stuck On U Sketches Blog.

This card I created using my Silhouette Cameo and the phrase is from Lori Whitlock design. First I drew a rectangle with size 4.25 inch x 5.5 inch. Then I opened the phrase and resized it to fit inside the rectangle.

I added on the card base from American Crafts card. I used Tombow Multi Mono Liquid Glue. The finer the tip of the glue pen is the better :)

I finish the card with the Red Enamel Heart from Close To My Heart.

And here’s what I do with the negative cuts:

You still have time to play along with us this week. Please go HERE to link up your project. Have a fun crafting day!

Exotic Flower Mini Wall Decor

We are packing now for our 2 months mission trip to Southeast Asia, to a tropical country where we will meet lots of people, working on some projects with the local missionaris and hoping to enjoy the special creations of God. In one of the small towns we will be visiting, they have lots of exotic flowers!

Today, I would love to share with you a project I made on request of my sweet friend :) She asked me to make her a mini wall decor for her home.

First, prepare a piece of watercolor paper. Cut in square 4 x 4 inch. Use a sturdy flat base to keep the paper flat. Use Blue Painter Tape to keep the paper in place when you work.

Then stamp the Exotic Flower Hostess Reward Stamp using VersaMark ink pad, add Ranger White Fine embossing powder, heat set using Craft Heater.

Using Aqua brush, watercolor using Exclusive Inks Stamp Pads: Lagoon, Juniper and Pear.

Fussy cut and use 3D foam tape for each layer.

For the base I cut 1 piece of Black cardstock and 2 pieces of White cardstock for sturdiness. Finish it with a Silver Glitter Gem.

All done :) I would suggest to use the Scotch wall picture that has double sided adhesive to put it on the wall.

I am thinking to make one for me when we come back from the trip :)

Thanks for visiting today!
