February 19, 2018

The sun sets, but it will rise again.

Giving oneself another opportunity to do things better.

One more chance to say Thank You, I Love You or I'm Sorry.

Go out and be kind, even if it is not reciprocated.

Go out and show Love, especially around the hateful.


Look for the Message of the Spirit.

Live in the Mode of Prayer.

Search out the Model of Scripture.

Submit to the Ministry of a mentor.

Expect the Mercy of Confirmations.

Front Porch Kit Fun

Hello, Rhonda Merry here with some Front Porch Kit Fun. 
One of my favorite things to create are mini albums or tag books adorned with fun embellishments.  I admit I have a lot of great packaged items to break into but there is something extra special about making your own. For me it’s not only getting creative but using up the scraps from a project rather than throwing pieces away. Also, using the many stamps, dies and punches I have picked up over the years. 

This little book is titled “We Give Thanks”.  Each page has a little journal area where each of my family members will be able to write in what they are thankful for this year. All of the embellishing was made up from the various scraps and embellies that came inside the “It’s Fall Ya’ll” Front Porch Kit. 

Here’s a look at each page.

The little pumpkin is made from punching out 3 ovals from the orange patterned paper.  I layered it onto a 1’ chipboard circle to easily adhere the parts.  Punched a little leaf sprig and free handed a cork stem. I inked the edges if each oval and the leave with coordinating inks.  Once all of the pieces in place to form your pumpkin and the glue is dried, adhere to your page, card or tag.

   I used various dies to cut fall images from the cork sheet included in the FPK.

So if you would like to get embellishing, go through your stash, find those general shapes (circles squares, ovals, or labels) gather the stamps with foliage, Thanks Yous and journal lines plus some specialty shapes like stars, hearts, fall themed, etc. and start punching and stamping away with your Front Porch Kit.

It's Fall Ya'll Front Porch Kit Reveal Day

Hello and welcome to our reveal day

Let's start with a few of my projects.  
In the kit you will find this scalloped wood
 surface to create a sign, a tray or a message
 board like this one.

Part of the fun of fall is all of the beautiful color 
changes on the trees, well, sometimes it's a little 
scarce in Texas, but sometimes the conditions are 
right for it.  Here is a single page layout I 
created for my fall photos.
