Create for Christ

This months Create for Christ class is this beautiful prayer journal that you can make at home with any papers you choose. Here I have chosen the gorgeous papers from the Magnolia Lane DSP along with Petal Pink cardstock and Mossy Meadow cardstock. The ribbon is the Petal Pink Organdy striped one. I used the Butterfly duet punch with the sparkle glimmer paper as an added embellishment. The Positive Thoughts stamp set was chosen from the January -June 2020 mini catalog. For every $60 you spend you can choose a free item from the Saleabration catalog. The tabs were made with an old tab punch from my stash.

If you make one of these please comment and post a picture below! I would love to see your creations.
