Paper Tree House Blog Hop

Picnik collage

Welcome to Paper Tree House Studio's Friends, Love, and Faith Blog Hop.   As a paper artist, it’s so fun to get together and inspire one another through things such as blog hops.  This post is not only meant to inspire you through artwork, eye candy and prizes but also through the message. 

I was so excited to find out the theme of this hop because Isaiah 40:31 is and has always been my life verse.  What does that mean?  For me, it’s the verse that stood out to me as a young girl (only 11 years old.)  That’s when it became very real to me and I began to understand that no matter what I am going through, when I spend time with Jesus, reading and praying, He is faithful and He gives me peace and strength.  Over all these years, I have come back to this verse time and time again to be reminded that no matter how hopeless the situation seems, He will carry me through and give me strength.  There is nothing quite like having that kind of peace in your life; knowing that whatever comes your way, God will help you through it. 

If hope and pray that this verse has been and will continue to be an inspiration to you.

          On to the hop

Today, we're out in force on the internet -- showing our faith and giving the glory to God. United, we stand as Christian paper crafters and blog owners to make a presence on the internet for all to see. If you are hopping with us, you should have hopped over from Nancy.  If you happened to just come across this post and you want to join in on the fun, make sure you jump over to the beginning so that you do not miss out:

Paper Tree House Studio
We're celebrating the theme of faith and we're happy to share our projects with you based on the verse:

"...those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." (Isaiah 40:31)

First, we would like to take a moment to thank our generous co-sponsors: : Zutter, Paper Trunk, Create 365, Memorable Seasons, Scrapbook News and Review, as well as Papperie.  Together with Paper Tree House Studio, these companies have donated some wonderful prizes for today's blog hop.


Oh, yeah! There will be three lucky grand prize winners for today's event.

To enter, simply hop through the blogs and take note of all of the participating DT members of Paper Tree House Studio, and make sure to jot down the "blessed words" they will have in their post, and leave a comment on their posts. Once you gather all of the words, you will have another special Scripture to inspire you to create while leaving His legacy. Then send us an email at listing each of the staff members who participated in today's hop and the completed Scripture. It's that easy. All entries must be received by Monday, February 28, 2011 at 12 noon, EST and seven winners will be randomly chosen to win.

What are the prizes?

One Cricut Gypsy from Paper Tree House Studio
One Bind-it-All from Zutter

One baggy of goodies from Create 365
One baggy of goodies from Papperie
One baggy of goodies from Paper Trunk
One year subscription to Scrapbook News and Review
One $15 gift card to Memorable Seasons so that you can purchase your favorite goodies!!

In addition, many of our participating bloggers will have amazing blog candy and RAKS available for one of their blessed visitors by simply leaving a comment and becoming a follower on their blog. That's a lot of chances to win, so let's get to the Hop!

I created this card with my friend Jaclyn in mind.  She is a young mom of three children who has been through the most tragic accident.  Yet, her and her family continue to trust in God as she gains small bits and pieces of her life back every day.  Their lives are full of gratefulness and thanksgiving.  It’s so inspiring!Paper Tree cardSupplies:  Cardstock – Bazzill; Pattern Paper – October Afternoon (Thrift Shop);  Spellbinders Die template – S4-310 Labels Eighteen; Ribbon – May Arts;  Brad – 7 Gypsies; Button – Grandma’s drawer

As well as the fabulous prizes listed above, I wanted to offer you a chance at a little something myself.  Pictured here are some Pink Paislee Rub-ons, a Maya Road mini bird album and some Doodlebug Design brads.  This RAK will close at the same time as the hop.  Please be sure to contact me if you are a winner. My last blog winner has still not contacted me and if I can’t get in touch with her, I will be offering up that RAK again soon.


The next stop on this blog hop is Rachelle.  Have fun!

God bless your day!
