1 If I
speak in the tongues
of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding
gong or a
clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can
fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move
mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all
I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,
but do not have love, I gain nothing. 4 Love is patient, love
is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It
does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it
keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but
rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails. But where
there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be
stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we
know in part and we
prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness
comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was
a child, I
talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I
a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now
we see only a
reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face.
know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
now these three remain: faith, hope and love.
But the greatest of these is love.

Welcome to our Tuesday Challenge in connection with Cooking with Cricut / Paper Crafting World!
Our mission this week – should we decide to accept – was to design
something using Texture in some way.
As usual, my mind began spinning as soon as I saw the requirement and
I’m excited to show you the outcome!
I also decided to write it up as a Recipe, in case you would like to
‘cook up’ a project like this!
It’s really quite easy to do and you can change/add anything to ‘your
taste’ – This is just a Basic Recipe – for this -
* 1 frame from
the Dollar Store – mine is 8 x 10” wood – remove the glass to use for another
* 1 canvas –
mine is 5 x 7” –
wallpaper scraps or other textured paper for background and inset piece
paints – colors to coordinate with your project color scheme – dry foam brush
* inks for
shading – your colors
* cardboard –
top layer ripped off, sides ripped/distressed – for accent piece and to raise
cardstock for cutting .svgs – digis – (also Mulberry paper for leaves - They have a terrific selection of papers and wonderful customer service!)
ribbon, twine, lace, trim elements (vegetable/onion/potato sacks) – whatever
you’d like to include
flowers (Recollections/Petaloo/Swirlydoos…your choice)
ribbon for handmade rolled flowers – (circle paper scraps for bases) – for
‘buds’ - and for around digi verse plaque
* leafy vine
* daisy punch
and wallpaper scraps/or your choice of paper for handmade ‘straw flowers’
for flower centers
shreds for stuffing Apple Basket
* glue gun/adhesives
for adhering items to project
I ‘dry brushed’ dark brown and then copper streaks on the
deep rust-stained wood frame. I
then also did the same to the canvas – lightly. I cut the woven wallpaper scraps to fit the frame and for
mounting onto the canvas.
I adhered a piece of cardboard – top layer ripped off, sides
ripped/distressed to the right edge of the frame.
I cut the Apple Basket
and adhered it to the inset canvas at an angle so as to have the look of apples
and flowers spilling from it. I
cut leaves (6-pt.Flowers Set) on my
Cricut, cut the spray in half – then adhered them to the side and bottom of
frame. I punched leafy vines (Martha
Stewart) from Kraft paper and adhered them on the others. I also punched/cut some from Mulberry paper and adhered them. I adhered looped twine and a ruffle of
‘onion bag’ (Yes! from a bag of onions! You may remember from previous posts that I like to use unusual elements -) to the lower side of the Apple Basket. I filled the Apple
Basket with Kraft paper shreds – then adhered the apples (Apple Basket) to
the edge of the basket and a few strewn on the ‘ground’ beyond.
I cut the Pumpkin Vine,
backed it with cream paper and adhered it to the lower left corner – raising it
up on pieces of cardboard.
Using the Daisy Punch (Marvy), I punched 6 each for each
flower, inked the edges, dented the center using a stylus on a piece of foam,
then glued the layers together, pinching the petals inward. I finished them with a gem in the center. I made rolled ribbon flowers with brown,
cream and rust/cream ribbon, adding a gem to the centers. I adhered these and ready-made flowers. I made ‘buds’ from brown ribbon and
added them, too.
I cut leaves (maple and oak) using the Pumpkins 'n' Leaves cutting file and added them intermittently
throughout the leafy vines. I also
added a few gems to the vines.
I printed and
cut out the ‘Love is…’ digi (1
Corinthians 13), raised it with a piece of cardboard and adhered it. I added a knotted and rolled piece of
ribbon around 2 sides.
Here are the files I used:
I hope you have a chance to see all of the Creative Texture
projects designed this week – then try your hand at it – and link up to
CWC/PCW! We’d love to see
them! Remember that there is a
Sale, also, this month - Here is
See you next week!
Remember, also, that we now have DIGI DESSERTS FRIDAZE – each Friday –
and SMORGASBORD SATURDAYS!! Lots
of creative options at the CWC/PCW site and here!
