I like to give our church secretary a little something each year for Christmas. She does a wonderful job, often going above and beyond her job description to help things run smoothly each and every day. This year I decided to create a journal for her to use to record prayers, praises, or thoughts from any Bible studies she does this year.
The flourishes (a CTMH promotional stamp set from a year or two ago) were clear embossed and turned out great if I don't say so myself. Embossing is still a work in progress for me, but it is coming along. I inked the edges of the flower with twilight ink from CTMH to add a little dimension to it. I like the added color rather then leaving it all white. The Scripture stamp is from Verve. All the papers were from Michael's or Joann's.
