Simply Christmas 36-Elements/Clipart Designer Scrapbook Kit

I've come to the conclusion that it's easier creating Papers then Elements. It has taken one whole week for me to create the  Simply Christmas 36-Elements/Clipart Designer Scrapbook Kit. But I am very happy with how they turned out. Over the years I have shopped at my local craft stores for my Card making supplies so needless to say I have my own craft store in my home. This last year I have been purposeful to not buy anything new and use up  some of my supplies, which I have enjoyed doing. But now I find that instead of using papers and embellishment from my store I find myself wanting to create my own papers an now elements. So go figure. 

 Of course all our products can be purchased from our ETSY SHOP https://www.etsy.com/people/kmfriesen?ref=si_pr

Remembrance Garden Pot

 This summer I had the privilege of taking part in an 11 day Study Tour of Israel with the Well Church I made this miniature remembrance garden pot when I got  home with all my stones, shells and sea glass from our trip. 
Israel has an even greater place in my heart after this trip. I was so blessed to be apart of it. To walk the land, study the sites, be in Gods word daily,to experience the diverse cultures, to take all that in plus getting to know some amazing fellow travelers has changed me! Shalom!

“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.”’Numbers 6:24-26




Darling Paper Wallets


This was the year of the wallet for me. When my 3 beautiful daughters and daughter in Love had their birthdays this year I wanted to do something a bit different once again. I was fortunate to be able to take them on a shopping spree, so I was giving them some money to spend and wanted to present it in a fun way. Below is the link to look at some videos that I used to help me . I would suggest starting with scrap paper and making a few to figure out the easiest way and any changes you want to make. My wallets started out as a 11x10 inch double sided paper. I used the triangle that you cut out, I glued it back into that same area so you wouldn’t see the cut paper when finished. These Wallets have been so much fun to create, and your recipients will rave over them. Most of all have fun with them....




General Supplies: SU:  3 way Flower Punch, Tag Die Cut, Metal Fasteners., Ribbon, Zip Drive glue,Dimensional Dots, Twine, Hole Punch, Circle Punch, Glitter Brads.
