Christian Card by Paperie Blooms: Product Review October 28, 2010

Filed under: Product Reviews — christianmarketplace @ 8:00 am

Christian Card by Paperie Blooms on Etsy

The cards by Paperie Booms on Etsy are well-constructed, beautiful, and have an absolutely wonderful message.

The card arrived well-packaged in perfect condition, and quickly.

The card is well constructed, with an artistic and lovely composition. She clearly chooses to use a composition that complements the verse or quote that is used on the card, and she succeeds greatly at this.

The card is beautifully made with unique and clever items added, so that it is not a typical card front. The card that I received has a button, string, and paper sewed together, all on the front of the card, making it an eye-catching work of art as well as a functional card to send to a friend. I would love to frame my card and display it as well, as it is truly beautiful.

These cards have been thoughtfully arranged, from the verse or quote chosen to the font to the arrangement to the beautiful collection of items chosen to add a 3-D quality to the front of the card, making them lovely and creative. I am excited to recommend these cards, as well as PaperieBlooms, as she has been kind and considerate to work with!

Featured Artist: PaperieBlooms on Etsy!

PaperieBlooms on Etsy is a shop with beautiful handmade cards, mini note cards, and tags.


1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I live in the beautiful state of Virginia with my dh, Gary.  We travel on our Harley with other Christian riders, it such an out reach.  I enjoy weekend getaways, and savoring a good cup of coffee.  I have always been creative and enjoying something come to life.

2. What inspires you to create your work?

Creating is a passion, but I must say the one thing I enjoy the most about creating a card is sending it to someone.  I enjoy encouraging others and sending sunshine into their life.

3. What is your favorite thing to make/sell?

Cards, mini note cards, tags, and occasional 3D alter items

4. What is the best part about being a Christian seller?

Using God’s word to lift others up.  It also gives me the chance to share the love of Christ with those who don’t know Him.

5. Why do you do what you do?

I feel it is a gift God has given me, whether He has me use it always or for a season I do feel He wants me to share it with others.

6. What is your favorite book/movie/music?

My favorite book is the Bible, I am not a movie watcher or TV watcher.  I do enjoy other Christian based books to help improve my relationship with God and others.

7. What is one of your most well-loved Bible verses?

wow…I have lots, but if I had to say one it would be…

Philippians 4:6-7 (New King James Version…this is my favorite version of the Bible)

6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Bookmark and Bracelets by AlejandraCC: Product Review October 18, 2010

Filed under: Product Reviews — christianmarketplace @ 8:00 am

Philippians 4:13 Bookmark by AlejandraCC

AlejandraCC on Etsy’s jewelry and bookmarks are absolutely adorable, with a great message and wonderful craftsmanship.

The first thing that I noticed after receiving these items in the mail was their packaging: They arrived in a sturdy packaging box, and on the inside they were wrapped in tissue paper and mailed in a cute little paper jewelry box. Along with this great presentation, I was delighted to find the lovely items themselves.

The Philippians 4:13 Bookmark is made of a lightweight canvas fabric that is very soft, and the rose at the top is beautifully painted. It is the perfect accessory to many books and the verse and the flower go very well together. It is beautiful and useful, and a truly lovely item.

Philippians Bracelet by AlejandraCC

The Philippians bracelet by AlejandraCC is another great item from her store. It is made of canvas as well, and it is a wonderful addition to many outfits. It is a cute and casual bracelet that is well constructed. It is well-designed with an easy clasp and cute beads at the clasp as well.

Salvation Bracelet by AlejandraCC

The salvation bracelet by AlejandraCC is also a great item. The bracelet has a leather cord with glass and crystal beads. It is a versatile addition to your wardrobe with a wonderful message.

The bead colors hold significance as a “Salvation Bracelet.” As described on her Etsy site,

“The black represent our sin, we are sinners.
The red represent the blood of Jesus, He gave his life for us.
The blue represent the waters of baptism, our testimony, our repentance.
The white represent that now we are pure because of the holy spirit.
The green represent eternal life.
The yellow represent heavens, the gold city described in revelations.”

She also included a salvation bookmark with several salvation verses that is a beautiful and helpful addition to any collection of Bible verse memorizations.

AlejandraCC’s items are lovely and well-designed, and I am excited to recommend these items, along with AlejandraCC’s shop, as she is quick, kind, and thorough, with great products with a Christian message.
