2013 Fall Bulletin Boards

Hello again! As you can tell I have been very busy! Being productive is a good thing. Anyways, as I said, I would share my church bulletin boards as soon I got them done. Well I got them done today and I have time to share them with you all. I am so pleased at how they tuned out too. I think I said it before, but I really fall and the colors that come with it! I did reuse some things from other bulletin boards from the past. Hey, it saves on time and money, plus if they are still in good shape you might as well reuse them. Right? Does anyone else do this?

Again, thank you so much for stopping by!
 I hope you have a wonderful day!

I am on a roll!

Hello!  Apparently, I AM on a roll...with the colors of black, red and white and wedding anniversary's!  LOL  I just love how they contrast against each other!  I made this quick little card for my niece and her hubby, for their 5th wedding anniversary.  We are so glad that they are doing so well.  We hope and pray that God will bless their marriage for many more years to come.  They have moved closer to us all so now we get to see them a lot more and spend time with them more and that is wonderful!  So naturally, I had to make them a card too.

I used:
Cricut Craft Room Basics Cartridge for the heart cut
Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridge for the Arrow cut
Black Cardstock
DCWV Glittered Stack
Making Memories Wedding paper pad
Red Satin Ribbon
IRock gems
Black and white bakers twine

I hope they like it as much as I did!
Thank You for stopping by!
I hope you have a great day!

Love Birds in the Park

Hello again!  I have not posted much in while, but that does not mean that the creating just means that I am very busy creating.  Did you catch that?  LOL  Anyways, my SIL and BIL, just celebrated their 22nd wedding Anniversary.  They were so willing to give up their anniversary weekend and travel about 3 hrs. up here from their home to help my FIL cut wood for the winter.  What a blessing and a great example to us all.  What love they share and have.  Anyways, I found the inspiration for this card again on the wonderful site of Pinterest!  LOL  What a great resource!  I did not have access to a  "Bench" cut, so I just designed my own in the Cricut Craft Room, another great resource!  LOL  I think it turned out really cute!  Very simple but I love the black and white contrast against each other!  Well, I hope they liked it! 
I used:
Cricut Craft Room Basics for the general shapes of the "boards" of the bench and the heart
Gypsy Font Cartridge for the word "LOVE"
Country Life Cartridge for the birds
Martha Stewart hearts punch for the tiny heart above the birds
Polka Dots embossing folder
Black and white bakers twine
Dimensional Tape
Thanks for taking a peek at what I have been doing!
I hope you have a day filled with many blessings!


Church Project Poster

Hello everyone!  I hope you all are having a great day today!  I know I am enjoying this cooler "fall-like" weather here in Ohio!  So much so that I have gone ahead and put out my "fall" decorations in my home and at my church!  I love the fall season, and the colors that come with it, plus the cooler temperatures.  I am one of those rare people who love the fall and the winter seasons more than the summer.  Well, here is just some of the things that I have done at my church.  I am still working on the bulletin boards at this time but they are almost done!  So I will share those with you all soon.
In the mean time here is our Communion table d├ęcor that I did up and the a "Project Poster" I did up for the people, which I will explain in a minute.
I just love the fall colors!
Okay, now to explain about this "Project Poster"
My church needed new siding very badly.  It is this dark brown wood siding with wood windows, and  beautiful stone on the front and sides of it.  But the wood siding/windows are wood, and with time and years of the elements of weather changes, it has finally come to a point that no matter how much paint or whatever you do, it needs replaced.  So we wanted to get it done before winter.  Well, our church is just a very small country church with an average attendance of 30-40 people.  We needed no less than 10 boxes of siding and at least 5 windows that must be replaced at this time and each box of siding/windows cost about $150.  So we wanted the people to see the progression of the siding/windows being paid for by making this "Project Poster" by putting the strips of siding on slowly over top of the original dark brown wood siding, and the windows being replaced by putting window panes overtop the window openings.  So my wonderful hubby and I worked together in designing this up and had it up for about 2 weeks and then suddenly, someone felt led by the Lord to pay for the whole project, plus extra.  WOW!  We were so stunned!  We are rejoicing at what God has done for our little church in such a short time.  I am so looking forward to the building being done up with the new siding and windows!  God is so awesome!
Either way, I used my Cricut to cut the windows and doors for this project.  I think it didn't turn out to bad at all, and I guess it was more affective than I ever thought it would be!  LOL 
God is so good!
Anyways, I know this was not my regular post of cards but I just had to share what I have been doing as of lately!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fantastic day!
