There is a new blog out there, and I am so excited!  I have followed Diane's Card blog for a while.  I love her heart, and her passion for Christ.  I have worked with her on a couple of projects, and I can tell you- she is as sweet and helpful as the day is long!

This week, she has started a blog by a woman...for women.  You have got to pay a visit to her new venture-  Women to Women: Sharing Jesus.  This is just bound to be a jewel!!

As we just had Valentine's about a layout that includes a verse with the word love in it?  It can be for anyone- God, spouse, children...just include a verse that has the word 'Love".

Have fun!

Featured Blog of the Week

For the last few weeks, we have been looking at blogs/stores that sell awesome Scripture stamps.  I just got a few new ones, and have fallen in love with the entire concept!  It makes it so easy to add a Scripture sentiment to an encouraging card or a family layout.

This week, I want to point out Unity Stamps, to you. They hav some truly lovely stamps, that are really word art.  Just click on the products, and the words and sentiments.  Looking for ideas on how to use Scripture Stamps?  Be sure to check out their gallery while you are there!!

I have promised you a few great stamp makers- ones that make Christian stamps for our cards and layouts.  This week, I am sending you over to Verve.  I have to say- I love their Plain Janes.  I bought a stack of them, and have been using them to pieces!  They are perfect for card sentiments- but they add a great touch as journaling to layouts, too!

Take a look!  Verve Stamps.

Featured Layout of the Week

I love this layout!  I love the graphic nature of it, I love the black and white colors.  I love the journaling around the edges.  Most of all, I love the heart of it.  This one doesn't just speak to me, it speaks straight into my heart!!

Congrats, Hazel, for having this week's Featured Layout.  If you will drop me a note at I will get you set up with a free month of SNR.

Chime In!!

Tell me what your preacher talked about last Sunday.  I love hearing the topics that are chosen.  We are going through a series about whether we can logically believe in a literal Christ of the Gospels.  Very interesting.

Featured Blog of the Week

I don't normally do this- because we are not trying to sell things here at AFP.  But, I really think having great scripture stamps is a resource to a faithbooker.  So, for the next couple of weeks, I am going to point you to a few blogs for stamp manufacturers.

This week, we will start with Our Daily Bread.  This is an awesome company that specializes in Christian stamps.  They have an outstanding product list, and a design team that will give you ideas on how to use them. 

Congrats to Our Daily Bread for being this week's Featured Blog of the Week!!

This week let's keep it simple.  Choose a favorite verse, and scrap one way that you are applying it to your life.  Don't just scrap the verse- tell how you are living it out.  Have fun!

I have the wonter blues.  I confess it.  I hate winter- which is a complete reversal.  Winter used to be my favorite foolish was I?  Anyway- I have wised up, and assumed my place among the winter haters support group.  I say all this, because I am having problems finding joy or being thankful for winter.  So, you all get to help me out.  Your page prompt, this week, is to do a page thanking God for what you LIKE about winter.  Surely, there has to be something, right?!  Be sure to show me- I definitely need to see this one!

Monday News!

A couple of things to tell you all, today!  First- the January issue of Scrapbook News and Review is up- YEAH!!  As always, this is an awesome issue!  I am constantly amazed at the talent we have on staff.  The cool thing is, as we grow and people hear about us- we are getting so much great input and contributions from our readers, too!  So awesome to see the magazine grow, evolve and improve.  If you haven't checked us out, I highly recommend it!!  There is just soooo much there!! 

The other thing I wanted to mention:  I had a couple of people ask me for the blog address for last week's Featured Layout.  Understandable- it was totally incredible, wasn't it?!  Well, keep your eyes peeled...cause I have a feeling she might be Featured Blog real soon, lol!!

So many people have Iphones and Blackberries and nifty cell phones, I just had to mention this resource. Imagine having an entire Bible- and Bible reference library with you- all the awesome would that be?! Olive Tree Software has versions of their program out for a huge list of platforms and devices- including a free desktop version. This also includes daily reading plans and devotionals- so you can use your lunch hours for the Lord and learning. Cool, huh?!

Page Prompt

This week, as we start the new year, I would like you to take a look backwards. I know, every site in the world is suggesting a 2008 layout. But, I want you to do it from a Spiritual perspective. What is the one lesson that the Lord worked with you on in the last year? If you are like me, there were a few...but what is one that jumps to mind. Remember to share your work- we will all be encouraged by seeing it!!

Layout of the Week...

is back!!! Yeah!! Thanks for being patient with me- I really appreciate it...and I appreciated the break, too! This week, I have the most stunning card to show you! Look what I found over on Amy's blog- isn't it just wonderful!! I mean, the colors, the distressing- this isn't a card, it's a little work of art!

Congrats to Amy Sheffer for being this week's Layout of the Week- if you shoot me an email at we will get your free month of the magazine started.

Hey- time to answer the question...what are your Spiritual Resolutions for this year? I would love to hear them!

I chose 4 words that the Lord has led me to concentrate on in my Walk: trust, beauty, heart and serve.

So- what about you? Leave a comment, and let's hear them!

OK, I have to point out Patter's new challenge series. Remember, last year she hosted the incredible Scripture Memory Verse Challenge. I loved that!! I didn't get to play every year- but I am hoping to add a few more cards in this year, as she replays it.

This year, Patter is hosting a Names of God Challenge. This is so cool! Every OTHER week, she gives us an attribute of God. We get to scrap about it. This week was HOLY. What a great chance to do a little study on the word Holy, talk to God a bit about it...then scrap our thoughts on it! Now, I actually have my Payer Journal set up in a 3 ring binder. (Decorated- of course, lol). This lets me set up sections the way I wanted. I mention this, because I have a section in my Prayer Journal for 8 1/2x 11 layouts I scrap on topics the Lord and I are working on. I have found it an incredible time of learning and growth, as We scrap together...and I love looking back over our lessons, too! My Names of God pages are going straight into this section!!

Be sure to hop over and check out Triple the Scraps for more info!!
