Thank you for stopping by my blog. Lately I have been reviewing books and haven't had as much time to scrap. Hopefully soon I'll get back to scrapping and creating some new files. Thank you for your patience.

I have made files available at absolutely no charge. I do this for fun. I am learning the wonderful Make The Cut (MTC) program and trying to improve my skills. Most of the files have been created from free coloring sheets online. You will need MTC software in order to cut these files. Please use these files for your personal use only and if you want to share them with others please direct others to my blog. I hope you enjoy these files. Comments are always appreciated. If you are not a follower please consider doing so. I have lots of new files that I want to add over the next few months.

The Beautiful Word

The Beautiful Word Creative Coloring & Hand Lettering adult coloring book by Coloring Faith is a very nice book. It is full of inspirational quote, scripture, and pages to teach you hand lettering.
The pages are double sided. One side is normally some type of picture such as mandalas, wallpaper (covering the entire page) flowers, birds, etc.  Most pages are full page images with a lot of opportunities to color. The facing page has quotes or scriptures
The paper is a smooth, thick paper and should take most media well. The pages are also perforated if you prefer to remove to color or frame.  The images are mostly drawn with thick, dark lines which may be a turn off for some people.   The lettering pages are similar to grayscale.
If you are looking for an inspirational/Christian coloring book this one is really nice and enjoyable to color. I received this book at no charge from booklookbloggers in exchange for an honest review.

Kids' NIV Visual Study Bible

Kid’s Visual Study Bible, NIV, is absolutely one of the best study bibles for kids that I have seen. Although I prefer the KJV because that is what we use in our church I still love this bible. I wouldn’t say it was geared toward young kids but more toward young teens. Even I feel like as an adult I can learn from it.
The bible is full of information: timelines, genealogy trees, maps, lessons, contrast comparisons,  etc. I don’t even know where to begin to tell all that is included. I can say I will definitely be using this bible to help my youngest study when he is older.
There isn’t a concordance or dictionary included but I would say it would make it much too thick to include such, but there is and infographic index that is a good substitute and a map index.  The biggest downfall in my opinion is the weight of this bible I guess because it is a hard covered bible. At the same time the cover is much sturdier and probably will hold up better in younger hands. The print is kind of small which should be okay for younger eyes.
I would love this same bible in the King James Version but I will use this one anyway.  I highly recommend this bible to anyone who wants to study the Word.  I received this book at no charge from Handlebar Publishing in exchange for an honest review.

Quilts, Barns and Buggies

Quilts, Barnes & Buggies: Amish Quilts and Proverbs illustrated by Julianne St. Clair is a beautiful adult coloring book. It is full of pictures of country type scenes, quilt patterns, animals, insects, barns, houses, plants.
The book is printed on every page. There are bible verses or inspirational quotes on every other page.  The paper it is printed on is very nice. They are pretty thick with a very smooth tooth.  The images are very intricate and detailed. There are a few easier pages but for the most part I would say this book has very small details and may prove a little tedious for some people. I personally love the intricate details and the challenge. I would think this book would work best with colored pencils and maybe gel pens but I haven’t tried them and they may smear easily since the pages are really smooth. 
If you love inspirational coloring books you will love this one. If you love quilts and barns with a few country scenes you will love this one.  I know it is among my favorites at this time. I received this book at no charge from in exchange for an honest review.
