This month will be Karla's last time creating with the team so...

We are in search of 1-3 additional creatives to work with us on the blog.

The requirements are one creation each month for the monthly challenge - choice of layout, card or off-the-page project.  It's great when you include the monthly scripture on your project.

One informative post during the month (which will not be every month as there are more than 3 of us!) 

     My Everyday Miracle
     Tips and Techniques
     In the Word Wednesday

Please email me with some samples of your work at Needtime4kroppin@aol.com.  

Be sure to put SEM DESIGNER APPLICATION in the subject line.

Looking forward to your submissions!

Making leaves

1. Tear or cut a leaf shape. 2. Fold it in half lengthwise to make the middle vein. 3. Leave the leaf folded in half, with the torn edge on top, make a 45 degree fold toward you about one third to one half of the distance from the end. 4. Make another 45 degree fold away from you on the other end of the leaf. 5. Unfold the leaf. (I refold the "veins" so all the ridges are facing the top of the leaf) Use chalk or ink to enhance the veins. This is a great way to use up scraps and you can have leaves to match any color scheme
