Tree among words.
I saw a few cards over on Pinterest that were stamped right on top of book pages and I really liked the look so I thought I’d try it. I had some Stampin’ Up scrapbook paper that looks like book pages so I used that to stamp on. I was really pleased with how it turned out.
The tree stamp I used was Sheltering Tree, which is an older Stampin’ Up! set. It’s new to me though as I bought it used. I thought a few pearls made the tree have a little character.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my project.
Have a creative day!
It’s in the Bag!
Since it is Back to School time I thought it would be fun to round up some DIY lunch bags that have been perked up, prettied up, and fancied, up. Hope you enjoy!
My bag above is a little smaller in size than a regular lunch bag. I used a Martha Stewart border punch (Doily Lace Edge) and then some worded scrapbook Paper as my base to layer some elements onto. Both of the stamps I used are from Verve. The Notebook Paper is a Verver Plain Jane stamp and the “enjoy” sentiment is from a Verve set called, Small Celebrations.
I added some of the worded paper to a mini wooded clothespin and added ribbon and button to finish it off. I love making up these kind of small bags for little gifts.
I have 20 more fun brown bags from around the web listed for you.

Have a creative day!
Hello Creative Friends,
I’ve had so many emails and comments lately from people who have been visiting my blog but didn’t realize that I had a main Women’s Ministry Website. I thought it was time to invite you all over just in case you are among those who haven’t found it yet. I do have a link to it in the sidebar but I know that people don’t always notice those links.
So here is your formal invitation to please come and visit my main website, Creative Ladies Ministry. The website has been online since 2001 and it is loaded with lots of women’s devotionals, women’s ministry articles, and lots of helps for women’s ministry.
I always think of my blog and my Facebook as just a run-off of the main website. You will find all of the meaty stuff over on the website. If you haven’t visited or haven’t visited in a while, I hope you will stop by soon.
Have a creative day!
Free things online are always great to take advantage of for our women’s ministry groups. I think generators are one of those great resources at our fingertips if we have a webpage or social media page for our ladies group, or even if we want to send an image through email. Today I’m sharing with you some generators that I like from a website called, Wigflip. They have several generators. I will share some examples of some of them and what I did with them.
AutoMotivator: This is basically a poster maker. You can’t go wrong with this to share Bible verses and inspirational quotes. Perhaps encouragement for your ladies webpage or Facebook page. AutoMotivator has several photos to choose from or you can upload one of your own. I chose theirs of a tree and added a Bible verse to compliment it. See below.
Find the AutoMotivator Generator Here.
Superstickies: I have to tell you that I love sticky notes! I was a secretary for a long time and every secretary knows that sticky notes are a girl’s best friend. They are great online as well. They stick out (no pun intended). So take advantage of this generator for your women’s group to remind them of special things and important dates.
There are several colors to choose from (look above and below their text box to see them) and make sure you click the centered tool if you want your text centered. Click “create” every time you make a change. It takes a few seconds to give you the preview so give it a minute to work.
Find the SuperStickies Generator Here.
Tinytags: The next generator I want to tell you about is Wigflip’s generator for making little tags. You can add any text to these. Be sure to play around with your spacing. Certain words of text will become larger as you change spacing so be sure to click on their “make tag” every time you make a change. In their generator the first row of black tags is for size and the second for tag position.
Find the Tinytags Generator Here.
Screedbot: The last generator at Wigflip I want to share with you is for making moving typewriter text. So easy. Just type your text and the generator turns it into a gif for you. Handy for quick announcements.
Find the Screedbot Here.
Wigflip has 12 different generators which you can find on their main page here. Hope you have fun with this resource. I know I did!
As always, I am not compensated by Wigflip or any other advertiser. If I like something, I just share.
Have a creative day!
