Friends, Love & Faith Blog Hop

Welcome to Paper Tree House Studio's Friends, Love, and Faith Blog Hop

Today, we're out in force on the internet -- showing our faith and giving the glory to God. United, we stand as Christian paper crafters and blog owners to make a presence on the internet for all to see. If you are hopping with us, you should have hopped over from visiting Jackie at Jackie Weeks (I’m a new fan of hers).

If you happened to just come across this post and you want to join in on the fun, make sure you jump over to the beginning so that you do not miss out: Paper Tree House Studio.

We're celebrating the theme of FAITH and we're happy to share our projects with you based on the verse:

"...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)

First, we would like to take a moment to thank our generous co-sponsors: Zutter, Paper Trunk, Create 365, Memorable Seasons, Scrapbook News and Review, as well as Papperie. Together with Paper Tree House Studio, these companies have donated some wonderful prizes for today's blog hop.

Prizes? Oh, yeah! There will be three lucky grand prize winners for today's event.

To enter, simply hop through the blogs and take note of all of the participating DT members of Paper Tree House Studio, and make sure to jot down the "blessed words" they will have in their post, and leave a comment on their posts. Once you gather all of the words, you will have another special Scripture to inspire you to create while leaving His legacy. Then send us an email at mailto: listing each of the staff members who participated in today's hop and the completed Scripture. It's that easy. All entries must be received by Monday, February 28, 2011 at 12 noon, EST and seven winners will be randomly chosen to win.

What are the prizes?

One Cricut Gypsy from Paper Tree House Studio
One Bind-it-All from Zutter
One baggy of goodies from Create 365
One baggy of goodies from Papperie
One baggy of goodies from Paper Trunk
One year subscription to Scrapbook News and Review
One $15 gift card to Memorable Seasons so that you can purchase your favorite goodies!!

In addition, many of our participating bloggers will have amazing blog candy and RAKS available for one of their blessed visitors by simply leaving a comment and becoming a follower on their blog. That's a lot of chances to win, so let's get to the Hop!

My Projects

I had so much fun doing these projects. It's great to do something you enjoy while glorifying his name.  This is my first blog hop and I hope you enjoy each and every stop along the way.

Here's a little candy for you...  just leave me a comment and at the end of the hop, will make the choice

"...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)

The next stop on this blog hop is Sueli Pinheiro

Blessing Journal

I made this journal to record all the blessing I receive from the Lord.  I covered a composition book with paper and used a punch to cut out flowers and leaves.  I used the velum to print out the blessing message.  Very easy and fun to do.  May have my Sunday School class make these for their own journals.

Prayer Card

I made this prayer card and praying the word cards for the ladies in my church.  I gave a thought on Prayer and gave each lady a card, the praying the word cards and a bag of chocolate.

I just used paper that I had laying around the house.  The Cricut to cut out the letters and I embossed using the cuttlebug.  The inside was printed using velum paper.
