Outside the Box Design Studio

Amanda of Outside the Box Design Studio has been really busy!  I have a few layouts done and more to do.    GoDigitalScrapbooking is where you can find her store.  Christmas Candy is a festive kit for your holiday pics.  Find it here.

Christmas Whimsy is another Christmas kit, this layout just seemed to come together so fast!  Christmas Whimsy is here.

I decided the best way to introduce all of you to The Tree of Jesse was to copy and paste what Amanda told all of us.  It is a beautiful project and very meaningful for this time of year.  Here is the link at GoDigitalScrapbooking.

The Tree of Jesse is a hybrid kit. It is very unique and special. It is for families to use around the dinner table, or in family times to remember the life of Christ and His heritage. Here is some background;
The passage in Isaiah, 11:1 is: "There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots. Jesus is the "shoot of Jesse".
In the New Testament the lineage of Jesus is traced by two of the Gospel writers, Matthew and Luke. Luke describes the "generations of Christ" in Chapter 3 of Luke's Gospel, beginning with Jesus himself and tracing backwards through his "earthly father" Joseph all the way to Adam.
Matthew's Gospel opens with the words: "The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham".[3] With this beginning Matthew makes clear Jesus' whole lineage: He is of God's chosen people, by his descent from Abraham, and he is the "shoot of Jesse" by his descent from Jesse's son, King David.

There is a Tree to cut out, and then each ornament is significantly related to Christ's lineage and events in His own life.
