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'd like to say that I, of course, use all the supplies and tools I purchase . . . I'd like to say that, but I can't in all honesty! So, I pulled out a set I purchased at a Stampin' Up meet-up several years ago. As you can see, I hadn't even put the sticker backings on the rubber stamps! (Although I think I used the telephone stamp one time a while back.)
I pulled a 5x7 photo from our recent visit to the George H.W. Bush Presidential Museum and was able to gather my supplies fairly quickly - a background patterned paper with books and some patriotic papers and embellishments.
I used the telephone stamp in the bottom right corner and the "Hello there!" stamp on the label in the top left (it doesn't show up very well in the photo).
I also used another "pristine" stamp in the top right embellishment cluster. It's very
subtle - a camera from the Shimelle collection.
D you have any pristine stamps in your collection?
