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.

I put together my own kit with papers, pocket cards, letter stickers & thickers, washi tape, and miscellaneous embellishments. Somehow I didn't get a photo of the entire kit, but here's a look at the various components. I added in some tans/browns, so I'm not sure that I did a great job capturing the feel of the kit used for INSPIRATION.
I pulled several groups of photos to use with this kit and ended up creating three layouts over the past several weeks. The first of these showcases a single photo from our visit to the Frontiers of Flight museum back in 2011.
I've scrapped several photos from that visit, but this one deserved its own layout.
The next layout showcases photos from this past December as we celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary.
I actually created this at Scrapbook Expo and was able to punch that black border strip at the Tool Station set up in the crop area.
The last layout is a two page spread with photos and a large block of typed journaling about my 2011 spring break crop.
I had quite a bit of the kit left over but wasn't feeling inspired by it any longer, so I incorporated the remaining items back into my stash. I enjoyed the challenge and am thrilled to have three more memories preserved!
Do you create your own kits? Do you use other kits as INSPIRATION or simply put products together yourself?
