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.

Cozy Christmas Scrapping

I've had FUN this month creating layouts using the Simple Stories Cozy Christmas collection for the Scrappin' Goodtime Design Team. This collection is perfect for scrapping lots of photos from a holiday event . . .

. . . or simply highlighting one special photo.

There are several papers that can be cut into 4x6 and 3x4 cards - perfect for use in pocket page scrapbooking or on traditional layouts.

I especially enjoyed combining the stickers and chipboard pieces to create embellishment clusters.

The photos on this layout were from last December - I'm happy to report that we have been having much better weather so far this year!

I also like that the stripes and dots and chevrons and plaids in this collection make it easy to use with non-holiday related photos.

As we celebrate Christmas Eve today, I hope you and your family are creating FUN memories and snapping great photos . . . that you can scrap in the new year, of course!
