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.

Camp Scrap 2013
Each week, May provides three mini-classes (like workshops you would sign up for at a summer camp) complete with a video and handout. The first mini-class this week was all about using a kit to get started scrapping. As many of you know, I don't use a lot of kits. However, I happened to have a kit, actually I think it's a collection, that I've had in a Materials File for a while. I decided to pull it out for my first set of layouts during Camp Scrap.
This kit came with an album (and was a gift from Robbie a while back), however I'm not planning to use the album just yet. Here's what I had to start with:
Embellishments - frames, die-cuts, punch-out pieces, buttons, and borders.
my friend Josey. So, this is actually my second layout with this kit!
Are you signed up for Camp Scrap? There's still time to join in and enjoy all the inspiration! Besides the three mini-classes each week, the workshop includes a weekly make & take, four chats, daily inspiration emails, and additional challenges and giveaways on the message board.
