I just love Marcy’s theme of Renewal this month. I think it’s powerful for us as people to be seeking renewal in our own lives, and being the kind of people that invite others to renewal too. To me it is a deeply faith-filled theme, so based on the truths of Easter. This lovely sentiment set has so many powerful words of renewal for really hope-filled designs.
With on-trend typography designed by Marcella Hawley, Good Thinking: Renewal will end your search for "just the right" rejuvenating words! This all-sentiment set measures 4" by 6" and is loaded with 16 images. Take a deep breath in, exhale out and stamp up some serenity. Now doesn't that just feel better?
This is a VERY Clean and Simple design, I’m not one who usually does CAS really well, but this one just popped into my head. I really love this sentiment. All of us need to take some breaks in life regularly to find renewal for our spirits. God does that for me in countless ways, especially when I’m going through difficult times, when I listen and tuck into Him.
I really wanted this creation to have the simplicity and calm feel of going to a beautiful spa where all the colours are serene and beautiful. And I just had to pull in another feather, cut with my Silhouette Cameo on vellum.
The beautiful sentiment is embossed and I carefully inked up the centre of “UP” with my B13 Copic marker. Just a few clear sequins and some twine finish it off.
Today the Bloom Brigade is stamping out some serenity and they'd love to share a bit with you!Allison Cope
