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.

Love - Authentique's Durable Collection
While this paper line has a decidedly masculine feel, I was also able to use the grays to create a "softer" feeling layout showcasing a photo of my parents when they were dating or just newly married.
I added a large doily as the base for my photo block, then cut the "love" title on my Cricut. The hearts were created using the Sizzix Hearts With Layering Die. (I had this piece leftover from my Valentine's Card class and thought it worked perfect on this layout!)
Have you used any Authentique papers lately? Do you have a favorite collection?
