At the end of every church service I’ve attended for the last six years, my pastor has
quoted paraphrased Matthew 22:37-39. It’s such a wonderful charge for the week ahead.
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. And love your neighbor as you love yourself.”
A tough one, admittedly. But we can try. And try again. My focus for this week is to look for opportunities to show others His love. This is the inspiration behind this week’s Project Faith™ cards. One literal reminder statement and one for journaling.
Hopefully you’ll enjoy them for your projects, too. Just click the image below to download!
I have a personal stylist. How cool does that sound? I admit, I am somewhat fashionably challenged. As a result, I have developed a Plain Jane look… basics and very few accessories. Well, not anymore! Stitch Fix has rescued me.
Stitch Fix is an online fashion retailer that provides a personal stylist to handpick five unique pieces for you as often as you’d like. You fill out a style profile, tell them all about yourself and your tastes, even share your Pinterest fashion board, and then schedule when you’d like to receive a box of goodies.
Once your box arrives, try on the items your stylist sends you, in the comfort of your own home, with the pieces you already own, and send back what you don’t want! Easy peasy! If you keep nothing, you only pay a $20 styling fee. If you keep all five pieces, you get a 25% discount off your whole Fix. Sounds fun, right??
The BEST part is that for each piece of clothing, you get a little card with styling suggestions! A little cheat-sheet for Plain Janes like me.
Give it a try, and use my referral link here, so I can earn some extra moola towards my next Fix as well. (It won’t cost you a penny more.)
Here’s a peek at my latest Fix:
Bay to Baubles Sauna Curved Bar Necklace $28
I’ll probably keep this one. Love the style, love the price. Plus, it’ll go with nearly everything.
Collective Concepts Delanie Elastic Waist Dress $88
The style of this one is just OK. It fit me a little billowy in the top, more than I like. I’m on the fence, but leaning towards returning it.
Collective Concepts Esten Button-Up Sleeveless Blouse $54
I love the fit and style of this one. I’ll keep it!
Daniel Rainn Salden Lattice Detail Blouse $68
I LOVE the pattern on this top! The lattice detailing, however, is cutout and I’m not sure how to wear that style. For the price, I’m torn on whether to keep or return it.
Liverpool Raina Dark Denim Jacket for $58
This jacket is a great style, fit, and price, but I was hoping for more light-weight, spring-look pieces. If it were Fall season right now, I’d probably keep it. This one’s going back.
I love having someone choose pieces for me that I wouldn’t normally choose myself. Sometimes that’s just what your look needs is a perfect piece just outside your comfort zone.
What do you think about my latest Fix – what would you keep? What would you return?
The April collection is available NOW at Creative Retreat! Die cuts and stamp set from DYD plus precious Freckled Fawn wood veneers and washi tape, navy blue alpha sticker set, vellum arrows, and Studio Calico gold enamel dots. This month’s kit was inspired by the new signs of spring – fresh colors, watercolor skies and windy days. I just love the way it came together!
Prefer the digital version? It’s available here in my guest store at Scrap Stacks and 20% off all weekend! Plus the coordinating journal cards, too…
Project Faith™ this week is, again, based on the Casting Crowns song Thrive. If you haven’t heard it yet, check it out here. I have it stuck in my head again! Love it.
One of my favorite parts of the song is the bridge, “Joy unspeakable; Faith unsinkable; Love unstoppable; Anything is possible.” These words are the inspiration for your new pocket cards…

Grace is favor given to us by God, not because we deserve it but, because he loves us that much. I recently learned the true meaning in a powerful worship service I attended… We will never be able to sufficiently “earn” salvation. Instead, grace is freely given through Jesus. “Saved by grace through faith.” Ephesians 2:8 How beautiful is that?!
This week’s Project Faith™ card set features this message, and I hope you love the way it turned out! Click the image below to download:
I hope you had a wonderful Easter last weekend. We had beautiful weather and a fun family gathering at my parents’ house. How did you celebrate?
