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!!

Featured Blog of the Week

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.
