::dear god::

EssenseVibez in the houuuuzzzzzzzeeee!!!
i have a question for you---
do you ever sit by yourself in the morning and just want to soak
in the quietness of the house?

then you look up and before you know it,
you become one with God

i do and when i have all kinds of thoughts going through
my head i like to write them down
just plain ol' simple thoughts
so i made a
"dear god" journal

i made this journal using the Perfectly Shaped Build A Book
i painted one side of each shape cut a square in one of the shapes adhered vellum to the square then added my photo- i adhered another shaped chipboard behind the front and back covers the pages are made from white cardstock-
added my own personal doodling touches on the page
i plan on filling this journal with more of my thoughts to God

if you like what i made, please leave a comment--
you can also see the remaining pages i'm working on HERE
take time to peruse this blog to see the fantastik work the DT Team has made
there is much inpsiration on this blog---take advantage of it all!!!

remain blessed!!!

A man's home...

Hello all of you awesome MOSD fans and fellow DT members!  I've been out of synch for a while and am happy that I've had some time to create recently...

I was looking through my stash and thinking about my hubby...and saw one of the AWESOME shaped chipboard MINI BOOK pages I have in my stash...I turned it here and there and thought...HMMMMM...if I hold it a certain way, it reminds me of a house...now I'm sure this isn't the first time this shape has taken on the shape of a house, but my idea took shape as I also looked at some of the other shapes...I LOVE the layered look when I make mini albums, and some of the other chipboard SHAPES make it SO EASY to layer!

I'm not completely finished with this project, but wanted to give you a sneek peek...

I can't wait to get back to this project and finish it...I'll post it again once it's finished:)

Remain blessed:)

Your friendly "Frugal Scrapper Extraordinaire":)

MOSD goes to School!

Hello MOSD lovers! Amy here with today's blog post. Today I am doing things a bit different than usual. This project is actually not created by me! It's created by Kayla, my 10 year old daughter. Their 4th grade class had to create a tri-fold based on The Oregon Trail. Kayla had the bright idea of incorporating some wonderful MOSD products into her demonstration!

One item that she has been eyeballing for a long time are these spinners. She used the Perfectly Shaped - Retro Spinner. It's been covered in black cardstock and can easily be spun by younger kids (smaller hands) with the ribbon she attached to the back. This added an interactive aspect to the tri-fold that makes people interested in seeing what comes next when they spin it!

Another fun thing she did was cover MOSD Perfectly Shaped - Circles with lined paper and wrote her paragraphs on those as opposed to just a regular piece of paper. This added a visual interest and draws the readers eyes to the questions at hand. She used 3 perfectly shaped circles for this.

Overall I think she did a fabulous job on this school project, and she loved the fact that she got to incorporate some MOSD product into it. By posting this I wanted to show how versatile MOSD products are and that everyone can use them!! So next time you have a project that needs a little extra oomph, why not grab some MOSD goodness and spice it up a bit?!

Thanks for stopping by today and checking out what I (or in this case, my daughter) has been up to! We hope you all have a wonderful weekend full of sunshine and rainbows. Oh, and Kayla says Happy Bunnies too :)

Summer Reading journal

My son's last day of third grade is tomorrow - cannot believe it!! So to encourage him to read this summer I thought I'd make a fun little journal for him to keep track of his books read and even draw pictures about the stories (he loves to draw!)

I started with a MOSD Cover 2 Cover Show Off Acrylic Album. This album is about 4x6 - small enough to keep handy!

I used a MOSD Intricacies - Numbers on the acrylic cover.

I added a MOSD Journal Bits Stick On's in black and then added stickers for my title.

A few black MOSD Snap Rings and some ribbon completed the outside of the summer reading journal.

I left the unfinished chipboard on the inside of the journal and added some white papers for variety.

Easy & fun to make! Hopefully my son will add lots of titles into his reading journal this summer!

Thanks for stoppin' by the MOSD blog!

What do you CHERISH?
Memorial Day got me to thinkin'...
and I truly CHERISH the men and women
who put their life on the line each and every day
to allow me and others to have my freedom.
From the bottom of my heart,
This sun catcher was so fun and easy to create.
Here's how you can do the same using the
fantastic products from
I trimmed one of the smallest acrylic pieces to a perfect square.
With a bit of tissue paper and
waterbase sealer (such as Mod Podge,)
create a stained glass look to one side of your square
using the "mosaic technique."
1.  Apply sealer to square first.
2.  Quickly but carefully layer torn pieces of tissue paper.
3.  Apply sealer over torn pieces of tissue.
Add decorative elements to the FRONT of your square.
just above my childrens' photos.
Using a heavy duty punch tool (such as the Cropadile,)
punch a hole in each corner of the square.
Add beading wire (I used 22 gauge) and beads.
This would be a super fun project for any age.
Create cherished summer memories!
Let MOSD help you.
