Capturing Everyday Miracles


I just posted my first Capturing Everyday Miracles post at Scrapping Everyday Miracles and wanted to share the the layout I made here, too.

I also used this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Pockets wtih Edger Dies.


I used Papertrey Ink cardstock (kraft and stamper's select white), Mat Stack #5 & Tag Sale #3 die and twine. I also used my Quickutz Classic alphabet dies & My Mind's Eye patterned paper.

I don't think I often get symbolic or artsy with my layouts, but for some reason, I did with this one.... and it was fun! I layered some kraft letters over the kraft cardstock, because I think that sometimes little reminders of God's love are hard to see (or easy to miss) if we're not looking for them. I stitched the patterned paper squares like a quilt because I think that our faith is made up of smaller elements like this, collected together.

Here are a few close-up shots:


And one with the tag pulled out of the pocket:


Thanks for looking!
