The Greatest Love Of ALL plus Free Fussy Cutting Clip Art Graphics And Pretty Digi Papers and Bonus Craft Hack

I remember singing Whitney Houston's Greatest Love of All in my early teens not realizing that the greatest Love of all was Jesus all along.
We are to depend on Him, not ourselves, when we reach that lonely place, we seek Him not inside ourselves. Our heart can deceive us but God has given us the Holy Spirit that leads us into all truth.

Wow, I really had no clue what I was really singing about back then.
But now, I sing about God's Love, His agape Love, the unconditional Love that never fails, the love that never leaves me, that love that he demonstrated on the cross for you and me. Jesus died and rose for us, no one can compare to Him.
1 John 4:19 says "We love because He first loved us. God is true Love and our source of strength.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
If you need to find love please don't go looking in the wrong places turn your heart to Jesus, the forgiver of our sins, the lover of our souls.

Valentine’s Day should be celebrated every day because when we make Jesus our true love we can share his love and his goodness with others and represent the scripture in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 as best as we can with his help of course.
1 John 4:12, No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.

Here are some Hearts and Crafts Inspo and the free sites I got the elements and Digi papers from in case you wanted to make some cards to bless others with :)

All envelopes were made using the We r memory keepers envelopes punch board.

Squirrels Clip Art:

Free bundle of Digi Paper:
This one is for my little brother😘

Free Digi music paper:
The huge guitar chipboard sticker was purchased at Hobby Lobby.

Valentine's Day graphics:
This one is for the hubby.😍
I used a floral stencil with ink to make the card front and sprinkled it with some heart stickers.
Walmart carries this pack of stickers for 98 cents. Score!
I just purchased the stencils and Hero Arts ombré ink pad from Joann.com.


I used a napkin to decoupage the card front. and added an extra piece behind cardstock with a foam sticker so that the bird would pop out and I used some of the same napkin on the envelope as well.

This pretty hairdresser set is free here:

I used Dollar tree mini heart stamps, stickers, and fabric ribbon for this card. Yay! for the Dollar Tree 🌲 Stores.

Fun and cool hack. No die-cutting machine? No problem.
Take a rock or a spoon-shaped ice cream scoop and carve out the shape then lightly punch out the detailed designs with a pick tool shown below.
I got this one from Dollar Tree. The heart dies I got on Amazon.
The steps:
Take a piece of lightweight card stock or paper and place the rough side of the die facing down on the paper.
Secure the die with removable tape like washi or painter's tape. Then turn the paper over and start scraping gently the die until it comes out. You will start to see it come through as you are scraping. Then gently take off the tape and peel the silhouette of the die slowly and voila you have a die-cut without a machine.
The two examples are this one and the heart that says, Jesus.

Here is where you can purchase the metal die-cut hearts:

I made these small envelopes with this video:
This you can come back to. But this one is another way to create a mini envelope too.

My crafting scissors are these to make scalloped edges and pointy edges by cutting in reverse on my cards and tags for the sentiments. I don’t regret buying these shears even though they are for fabric. They work especially well for paper too.

This Free clip art on the armor of God is so nice : 
FYI, you will have to sign up to her blog fruitfully living.com in order for the download to be sent to you by email. This is not an instant download but her blog is great so I didn’t mind subscribing.

I made these for my kids.🥰

Happy Crafting and may you and your loved ones have a Happy Valentine’s Day😘
