Welcome! I'm Melissa Gross, a dynamic and interactive teacher and speaker called to lead and encourage Christian women in their walk with the Lord through classes, workshops and retreats incorporating Bible study, devotionals, illustrated Bible journaling, paper crafting and mixed media projects that merge faith and art bringing God’s Word to life so you can find renewed excitement to dive into the Word, use your creative gifts, and apply the Truth as you draw closer to the Lord and serve Him in your everyday life. This site is where I share my everyday adventures, Bible Journaling pages, scrapbook layouts, handmade cards, and other crafty projects, as well as information on my upcoming workshops and events. I also post photos, ramble about books I'm reading, stuff I'm organizing, and other FUN bits & pieces of my wonderful life.

2007 Title Page - Not-My-Typical-12x12 Week
This first layout is 8x8 in size and will be the introduction page in my 2007 album. Yes, that's right, I have a chronological album for 2007. This is a little change from the Library of Memories system and my Category Albums. After giving it a lot of thought and taking Shimelle's Cover to Cover class, I have made some adjustments/ updates to how and where I store my layouts. However, that's a post for another day . . . so back to my 8x8 layout.
I like the simplicity of this layout with matted square punched photos, a strip of ribbon, a strip of washi tape, and some chipboard numbers and accents.The reason I chose to do a 8x8 layout for this introduction page is very simple - the second layout in the album (the one that will go in the page protector behind this one) is an 8x8 that I created some time back.
Do you have an album (or albums) for each year? Or do you store your layouts by category? Or a combination of both?
