ADORNit ‘it’ Girl And Blessed Friends Ambassadors

I am so thankful to God for giving me an opportunity to work and serve at home and from home. Because of that I can have time to create projects.

When I look back to the crafting, scrapbooking, papercrafting, cardmaking, mixed media, and Bible Journaling projects, all I can do is giving thanks for my husband who always encourage and support me in this journey, and my daughters who never stop inspire me with their loves and everyday smile. Also, there are so many people that have helped me to step out of my comfort zone and grow. I am thankful for so many video tutorials and even only picture tutorials on blogs, YouTube, craft forums, and being part of amazing design teams. But I always open to learn and explore!

Last month, ADORNit and Documented Faith announced that they looked for crafty girls to be their ambassadors. I sent my applications and waited. And I received email about the news from ADORNit and Documented Faith. I got accepted!

Wordless Wednesday: Sisters

Wordless Wednesday is just like what you read, it is wordless. It is a weekly link up party at my friend’s Ramona’s blog, Create With Joy.

It’s time to share your favorite family-friendly photos – with or without words – at the friendliest party in town!

This week I link up my most favorite picture with my sisters. We took “us-fie” (LOL! I made up the word!) when we had my youngest sister’s last day out as a single woman because the next morning she got married.

Oh I miss them a lot! Above all, I thank God for the opportunity we got to be there for her happiest day and to share it with the whole family.

I {heart} My Sisters

This is a digital layout I created using Pixelily Designs new kit: I Heart My Sister and her template: Freestyle from Template Galore Bundle 2. The font I used for the journaling is Pea Denise. Both scrapbook digital kit and Template are available at –> store.gingerscraps.net/Pixelily-Designs/

Thanks for visiting today! I hope you have a wonderful time with your family 🙂

Father’s Day Gift Idea: Captured Memory Mini Scrapbook Album

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, embellishments, journaling cards, and stamps. 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.

Every day we wake up and live to make memories. Memories to remember. Scrapbooking is a way to keep those memories. And 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!
