Bible Margins Bookmarks by Christine


Who's loving the new Bible Journaling releases?  I am!!!  Christine joining you today with some bookmarks using the Bible Margins Stamp sets. For these I worked with the Bible Margins Light and Bible Margins Rejoice Set.  These were quick to make and a really enjoyable way to get creative over the recent holidays!


For each of the bookmarks I combined Distress Oxide inks with stencils and created a unique background.  This was new for me and was a really fun way to explore this technique.  I then stamped the margins stamps in black.  This one features the Bible Margins Rejoice Set.


In addition to the black stamping I used my Black Le Pen to color in some parts.  It really stands out on this red one!  I also incorporated Bakers Twine in making my tassels.  This one features the Bible Margins Light stamp set.


I laminated the front of these bookmarks so that they would hold up a little longer.


This one I used a little different approach and used some wet mixed media to create the background - although I love the end result, I was having fun with stencils and decided to stick with that for the rest.

A Little Valentine Treat by Giorgia


Hello SRM friends, Giorgia here today with you to share an idea for quick Valentines gifts.One of my favorite SRM products are the clear boxes, especially the pillow boxes: they are cute and perfect to embellish with SRM clear stickers!




I gathered my Valentines themed stickers (I also used the heart from Princess sticker sheet) and I applied them on the pillow box.


                   

Then I filled it with some chocolates, and in just few minutes I had a cute little gift for my husband to brighten up his day.

Thanks so much for stopping by, enjoy your day!
Until next time,
ciao, Giorgia

Love Story Coordinates Vinyl Sign by Samantha


Hello! Samantha here today with a vinyl Valentine's Day project. I thought I'd keep it really clean and simple, so I made a love story coordinates sign. 


To create this you'll need some wood (my sign measures 6" x 24"), paint (I used gray and a bit of white around the edges), SRM vinyl (I used matte white for the numbers and metallic red for the hearts), and a way to cut your vinyl (I used a Silhouette Cameo).



 My husband and I met in a city far from where we live now, so I thought it would be fun to use the coordinates to that city since that's where it all began. I'm not a terribly mushy person, so I kept it simple by swapping out the decimals for red hearts. If you're a little more lovey dovey than I am, you could also add the words "Where our love story started" or "Our love story began here" to your sign. 


 This love story coordinates sign is a fun way to remember the distance your love has traveled. Where did your love story begin?

Mustache You to be my Valentine by Shantaie


Hello!  Shantaie joining you today with some Valentine treats! 
I know it's cliche' to say "I love Valentines day" but it's one of my favorite celebrations!  My girls are far beyond classmate Valentines, so I like to make little gifts for my staff to hand out as a sweet little reminder that I appreciate them.


Most of my team are college students, so I can really have fun with the style of Valentines. I think these could work for almost anyone! My focus was on a little treat using the tubes to fill with candy. For the holder I used this cut from silhouette enlarged to fill the 12x12 cutting mat. I used the base only, and added patterned paper and round prints to embellish. 


I layered onto white punched pieces with foam tape, I also added hearts from the stickers by the dozen Valentine onto white cardstock and placed in the center of the printed circles. Tp top that off I added a bit of we've got your border sentiment to a skinny strip and adhered it in the center of the heart


For the mustache version I used the sentiment from that same stickers by the dozen valentine.  I used for the hearts on the sweetheart version. To add a bit of fun a die cut mustache is popped with foam tape and would be cute with a spring wobbler too! 


I love using tubes to make favors, give treats and even to store my crafty supplies! I have used them for years and each time I give one as a gift I am always thrilled at the excited reaction to them. 


Seeing someone smile is (to me) the best part of giving a Valentine! 
XOXO

Bible Margins Cards by Christine


The new Bible Margins stamps don't have to just be used in your Bible!  There's a huge variety of crafts you can do with these beautiful stamps! Christine joining you today to share a simple set of cards featuring the Bible Margins Stamp Sets.




I used for this set of 3, one stamp from each of the new Bible Margins Stamp Sets.


This is the Bible Margins Rejoice Set.  I simply stamped this with a Distress Oxide Ink and then used a sponge to go over the butterfly with the same ink.  I added some pretty patterned paper from Paper House Productions to each card.


This one features the Bible Margins Light Stamp Set.  I love the different icons included in this set to represent light!


Finally I used the Bible Margins Love set!  This is a beautiful set featuring verses that are great for a variety of occasions...but most definitely will work for those Valentines as well!  

As you can see, these are not at all complicated cards but still turned out beautifully!  I love that these stamps just need a little bit of ink and paper to make them into a real treat!

Valentine Treat Bags by Shelly



Hey y'all! Shelly, here.
Today I'm stopping in to share some fun and simple Valentine treat bags with you! 


I started with using some small kraft bags and filled them with a little bit of goodies. To close them up, I added a couple tags. Which I simply added a 'Be My Valentine' sticker to white cardstock and made a banner out of it. To add a little bit of 'pop' I hand drew on some little 'dashes/stitches' using a pink pen. For my smaller tag, I added a fun background of arrows using the Bible Background stamp set in a light mint color ink. Then, I used the Walk by Faith stamp set for my heart and after did a little fussy cutting, then added it to my tag. 


To finish everything off, I made a little bow using some twine and then a mini staple to hold everything together. Easy peasy, right?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!
