Spring Catalog Must Have’s – Part One!

Welcome back to another fantastic Blog Hop with the amazing gals I am working with this year to the Alaska Incentive Trip with Stampin’ Up! I am so glad you are here. This month we are sharing our first Must-Have’s from the new Occasions Catalog. There are so many great options and it was hard for me to decide what to purchase first.

I decided on the Lift Me Up Bundle, found on page 10 of the catalog. I was able to also earn the coordinating DSP available during Sale-A-Bration and used both of them on my project.

A fun 3-D items made using the Up and Away thinlits and coordinating DSP from Stampin' Up! Find more inspiration at www.faithgracestamp.com

I really loved the project example but I didn’t have the clear boxes so I decided to use my Gift Box punch board to make a box instead. I just folded the top flaps inward and glued then down. It was a faitly quick project using the precision plate with the big shot and the great tools and adhesives Stampin’ Up! offers.

Now it’s time to keep hoping along to Jayme’s blog and see what she has for you!

Word of the year 2017

Hello friends! More of a personal post here today – because this year I want to learn more about your, my readers and I want you to learn more about me, Jen.

For the last few years I have prayed for and been given a word to help define the focus I need to have as each new year begins. 2015 was Hope, 2016 was Freedom and 2017’s word has been revealed to me nice and late on New Years Eve.

Back in November I had a powerful revelation happen during a weekend retreat. A simple phrase begun a total shift in my thinking. “Life the life that God has called you to and not the life others expect of you”

I’ve spent the last 2 months praying about that, and working towards that goal. I have also been working on my recovery from the curse of imperfection.

Lastly at that same retreat The Lord revealed to me a verse and now given what my word is for this year I believe this is who He is helping me become.

These 3 things combined feel like a huge trifecta. It is a lot to have all going on at once but I know that what God calls me to, He always equips me for.

What about you? Do you pray for or choose a word for the year, something to focus on. I would love to hear what your word for 2017 is!
