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.

February Top Five #2 - Pile of Postcards Valentine Exchange
I received my sixth and final postcard I from Maya near the end of February - a beautiful skyline view of New York. Thanks Maya!!
So, I had six postcards from the exchange, which would all fit nicely in a 12x12 divided page protector. However, I also wanted to include the postcard that I received from Rinda and used as INSPIRATION for creating my own postcard to send as part of the swap. I decided to include a copy of my postcard as well as the logo from Sian's blog, too.
I chose an 8x8 divided page protector from my stash and stitched it to the 12x12 page using my sewing machine. Here's a look at the two pages together.
Having the two page protectors stitched together makes it easy to see that all these cards and my journaling go together, and the 8x8 page flips open easily.
I also really like being able to read the lovely handwritten notes on the back of each postcard.
Did you participate in the postcard exchange? How would you include the postcards in a scrapbook?
