Hello and welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs February Release Blog Hop!
If you arrived here from Chris' Blog, you are in the right place!  If not, you might want to start at the Our Daily Bread designs Blog to be sure you hop in the correct order, because we are having a Scripture Hop, and you will be collecting our Secret Scripture Words as you hop along, so you will want them in the order given!   
You have until Thurs. Feb 4th at 8:00PM EST to complete the requirements to be eligible to win.

There will be THREE BLESSED WINNERS... who will each receive a $15.00 Gift Certificate to the Our Daily Bread designs Store to go toward the stamps of their choice! Winners will be randomly chosen from all the qualified entries.

Here is what you need to do to be eligible to win:

  •  Hop from blog to blog in the order given below, writing down the secret words you will find clearly written  in their posts, and leaving a comment on each blog.
  •  Return here and leave a comment that you completed the hop and left comments for each designer.
          In the email, give me the secret words you found in order .... they will spell out a Scripture verse. 
  •  For an extra chance to win, send me another email telling me the Scripture reference where the verse can be found.
If for any reason a link is broken, simply return to the Our Daily Bread designs Blog  to see who is next on the list, leaving a space for the missing words.  Most often if you can't get on a blog or leave a comment now.... if you wait a little while and try again you usually can.

Now on to my projects:

 

I first saw the idea for this birdhouse used by Christine  and  I used the basic pattern for this lantern box on Stampin Mindy's blog, but making it a bird house.  The Chickadee image is from the new Feb. Our Daily Bread designs release, You Will Find Refuge, as is the tiny nest I stamped on the inside of the card.  The sentiment is  from the new release, Nest.  I used designer paper from My Big Idea, Gray Bazzill and lots of T Holtz distress ink in Walnut Stain.  Shingles are made with layers of punched edges with Fiskars Threading Water punch.  

For the card I made my own template based on the bird house box.  The dimensions are 4 1/4" wide and 5 3/4" high.  From top (fold) measure down ea. side 1 1/2" and make a dot.  From ea. side at top measure in 1 1/4" inch and make dot.  Draw diagonal line dot to dot and cut.  I cut the circle with my SB circle and placed the sentiment inside the card.  Cute irl.... but hard to photograph without shadows!

Accessories:  Cuttlebug Corner Die Cut, MS Lattice Punch, Fence Punch, Greenery Punch, Prisma Pencils and Gamsol, Spellbinders Small Classic Circle die cut, Acetate for box windows, chipboard for box base and base of lid.



I was just so excited about ALL these new sets this month that I just had to show you another project I made, using the set called Nest.  I used this Lang Mug as my inspiration and I think these would make a great themed gift idea!

 

This card is on a Cranberry Crisp base and used scraps of designer paper from SU! Recollections, K&Co, , a.t.d. Great Outdoors Scrapbook Kit, and the Paper Co.  The image is stamped on Very Vanilla and colored with Prisma Pencils, cut with a Spellbinder's Label 1, sponged while in the die and layered onto Cranberry Crisp and torn marbled gold dp.  The ribbon is from my stash and the pearls are Queen & Co.  Wouldn't this make a great gift with the mug filled with some goodies?  These sets are so versatile!  I have a ton of ideas running through my head!  


Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have enjoyed my projects~  Now on to enjoy the rest of the hop!  I can't wait to see who will win!!!

My Secret Scripture Words are:  said to
From here, hop to Debi's Blog and have fun!

Dear Grace,

What an amazing display of talent! You are incredible! How did you attach your work to the mug, or did you work right on it? It is amazing! I love the birdhouse! I think I will try to make one...my father-in-law used to have about 40 birdhouses in his yard. He is in an "adult living" now and has no yard. I'll hang it in the house.

Amazing--Grace!

He IS Able,
Traci S.
