Tuesday's Teacher

Hello ladies,

Sorry about last weeks disapearance! I am back and ready to roll! I think my Mojo is back and I'm not feeling quite as lazy anymore! Here is today's Bible verse!

"But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord!" Joshua 24:15

I know this is a wildly popular bible verse, but I still find it to be one of my favs! It's also a bitter sweet verse to me, you know how your parents are always trying to tech you the right thing and make the right choices for yourself and when you're a teenager you always think that your parents are total idiots! Well I know that my time will come some day, but I never want to be an idiot in the eyes if my kids...especially in the religion are. I want them to look up to me and know that they can trust in me to teach them the right things. I want my kids to always follow God (eventhough I know they need to make their own desisions!) I just don't want my kids to go through heartaches and trials...geez I'm not in control though, God is and I don't need to be worrying about these things because those times are so far off! But as of right now, me and my house will serve the Lord with all we have! We are blessed to be children on God and want God to know how much we love Him!

Thanks for reading my ramblings! I hope you and your house choose the Lord today...if you haven't already!

Tuesday's Teacher Tutorial

Top Note Ornament


Designer paper
modge Podge
Die cutting machine
SU! Top Note Die (available Spet2nd)
Fisrt I picked a picture I wanted to use and then I ran it through my die cutting machine (I used my cuttlebug because I don't have a Big shot yet!) and I used 2 B plates to make my sandwich. Once I die cut my picture I cut off the section that is perferated so that it would layer on the ornament itself.

Next I covered the chipboard with designer paper...a different design on eahc sid! make sure one side is not too busy or dark so that you can write on the back if you wish!

I will be making each of the kids one of these...it's a pic from each ones fisrt Christmas... I know they will cherish these when they get older...

And here is the finished product! I added this ornament I got at Target last Christmas...they were normally 4 for a dollar and I got 4 for 25cents! Well I got more than four...but you get the idea! So there you ahve it, a fun quick and easy way to make awesome ornaments with our new tool!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this project! Come back soon for more fun cards and goodies!
Thanks for stopping by and as always
Happy Stampin'
