Quick Page - I Love You

Merry Christmas!

I sit here in my family room. Christmas Eve church service thoroughly enjoyed. New tradition of Christmas Eve pizza filling our bellies. New Christmas pajamas keeping us cozy. "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" playing on the DVD player. Kiddos snuggling in our lap.

Aaahhhh... I love Christmas.

I pray you all are enjoying it as well!

Tonight I'm sharing with you a quick page I made a couple months ago. I didn't have any journaling with this picture -- just the kids messing around making "I Love You" in sign language. So I thought it would be cute to find multiple translations of "I Love You" and add it to the page. I couldn't begin to tell you which languages they are -- but so long as the translater page I used was correct, the words should be too! :)

I will give the heads up that this is an 8x8 template at 300dpi. It will print fine at 12x12, or you could do some fun layered papers under it, if you'd rather.

This is the final collection of Word Art pulled from my 2010 monthly photo gifts. I hope you're able find a place to implement these verses into your designs!

The final 4 verses are also contained within one zip file. The verses are as follows:

Top Left: Surely there is a future and your hope will not be cut off. Proverbs 23:18

Top Right: When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. Isaiah 43:2

Bottom Left: But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31

Bottom Right: He made the moon to mark the seasons, and the sun knows when to go down. Psalm 104:19

Word Art - 4 Bible Verses

I should probably be much more strategic about how I share these.... uploading one per day, creating a kit. I don't know -- there are probably a million better ways to share it. But that takes strategy and planning... and that's just not me! :)

My side of the family held an early Christmas about 2 weeks ago. I burned through and finished these gifts -- they're my favorite gifts to give. I do believe they were well received as well.

I kind of fell off the wagon in sharing these Word Arts. But I've hopped back on the wagon... so I'll keep sharing.

Included in this zip file are 4 different Bible Verse word arts, represented in the photos above. The verses are:

Top Left: The flowers appear on the earth. The time of singing has come. Song of Solomon 2:2

Top Right: Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin, and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Matthew 6:28-29

Bottom Left: The will will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat... and a little child will lead them. Isaiah 11:6

Bottom Right: Your beauty should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight. 1 Peter 3:4

Project 365 Templates

By show of hands, how many of you participated in Project 365 last year? Raise those hands high!
My hand... not up.
I wanted to participate, really I did. I blame it on not having an iPhone. I also blame it on not having a plan.
I still don't have an iPhone, but for 2010, I do have a plan. I hope that by sharing this Project 365 freebie with you, you'll also be able to document your year!
The inspiration for this design was from the monthly photos of my kids that I make each year for my parents. I love the 4x6 format, because it's so easy to just print them off as photos and add to a standard album. I also kinda dig the little date stamps I created for my kids and have converted them for this purpose.
I hope that my take on Project 365 is versatile enough to fit your needs, yet provides a standard and cohesive look for your album, however you choose to use them. Included in the 25MB kit are the following:

  • 365 Black Date Stamps -- Each month has its own PNG file, and there is a stamp for all 365 days of the year. I've consecutively numbered them -- and double checked my dates / numbers to make sure that I didn't miss any. The text around each stamp reads "January 1 Project 365" -- obviously each stamp will have its own date and corresponding number of the year.
  • 365 White Date Stamps -- After creating the white background with black overlay, I thought the inverse might also look nice. If you would like a different color, simply open the PNG file, choose "Layer Styles" then "Color" and choose the color of your choice for the date stamp.
  • 2 Black Lined 4x6 PNG Overlays -- one for the left side, one for the right side
  • 2 Black Unlined 4x6 PNG Overlays -- one for the left side, one for the right side
  • 2 White Lined 4x6 PNG Overlays -- one for the left side, one for the right side
  • 2 White Unlined 4x6 PNG Overlays -- one for the left side, one for the right side
Below you'll see examples of each of the 8 overlays. Under the samples, you can see exactly what it is you'll be downloading.
