Welcome! I'm Melissa Gross, a dynamic and interactive teacher and speaker called to lead and encourage Christian women in their walk with the Lord through classes, workshops and retreats incorporating Bible study, devotionals, illustrated Bible journaling, paper crafting and mixed media projects that merge faith and art bringing God’s Word to life so you can find renewed excitement to dive into the Word, use your creative gifts, and apply the Truth as you draw closer to the Lord and serve Him in your everyday life. This site is where I share my everyday adventures, Bible Journaling pages, scrapbook layouts, handmade cards, and other crafty projects, as well as information on my upcoming workshops and events. I also post photos, ramble about books I'm reading, stuff I'm organizing, and other FUN bits & pieces of my wonderful life.

Perspective Layout, Story Cards & Inspiration
This week as I scrolled back through the Inspiration Emails from the Dimensional Details workshop, I came across a layout that inspired me. I printed the email and pulled my Story Card along with the photos I had listed. I then flipped through my storage binders to see if there were any additional photos that would go along with this theme.
With these two items on my craft table, I began pulling supplies for a layout - kraft cardstock, patterned paper scraps, ribbon, buttons, etc. The result is this layout.
This is the first time I've actually created a layout based on an idea from one of my Story Cards. It is a great way to keep track of layout ideas and easy to pull when I have some time to create! I have a few layout ideas that I've scribbled down in a journal: I think today I will create Story Cards for those ideas and file them in my Category Drawers.
