Welcome to Day 1 Sneak Peek for TE! It’s he new year and that means a lot of us are in the resolution/goal mode and a lot of us are usually in the rest & renewal mode after a jam-packed holiday! So here we are with 2 new sets to help you in whatever mode you find yourself if and can encourage in someone else!
I am sharing some 3D projects I made using the new Rest & Renewal set in the Lasting Impressions line of stamps. It is a coordinating set to the New Beginnings set, which others on the design team are sharing with us today. The Scriptures and sentiments in the set I’m showing fit inside the Frame It Up Die we are releasing as well. I made an encouraging desk set.
Here is a small frame I had in my stash that I thought would be perfect for this set. All I did was stamp the Scripture on my designer paper and put it in the frame and adhered a small rose to the top.
This next item is a 3x3 post-it note cover I made. Again, just stamping on the designer paper and adding a small strip of ribbon and a rose. The pen I had in my stash is designed to put a small photo inside but I chose to put some designer paper stamped with the sentiment, “Every Day is a New Day”, what a great reminder when you have a lousy day. The encouraging aspect is that you can always start fresh the next day.
Lastly, I grabbed a jumbo paper clip from my stash, and adhered some circle punches on it with the sentiment “rest your soul” – I know I can find rest in reading my Bible (which I should do more often), or curling up with a good book so this can be my reminder to make time for me & God each day.
