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.

A Christmas Carol - Not-My-Typical-12x12 Week

Welcome to Not-My-Typical-12x12 Week here at Daily Life - Bits & Pieces. Each day this week I'll be sharing a layout that is not my traditional 12x12 layout. These layouts will be various sizes and formats.

I have another 8 1/2 x 11 layout to share today, this one is actually 2 pages that are stored back to back in my 2007 album. These pages showcase another performance by Pun'kin Natashia, this time as Belinda Crachit in A Christmas Carol. Once again I used the program as my title block. I placed my photos on the pages, then filled in the gaps with patterned paper and added tags and stars to complete it.

I am actually planning some time with my nieces in week or so and am looking forward to taking lots of photos for future layouts!

Lots of smiling faces in your happy page - and I really like your base of the programme. Hoping you have lots of lovely times with the girls.

I really like this size page...though I often use it horizontal,rather than vertical.
Have a great time with your nieces.

I like the blocking and having the program included in the layout. Reminds me, I still haven't done Christmas layouts for 2011.

Nice blocking - I'm with Sian, bet your nieces love looking at their pages. Hope you have fun with them when you get together.

Fun series! I like to do other sizes too but gravitate to 12x12 most. Love the program added to your page and how you blocked the 2-pager. Have fun this week! :)
