Delight In His Day Haul & Journal Entry

Today is one exciting day!! Dayspring is adding over 100 New Bible Journaling goodies in the Illustrated Faith shop!!!!!!  How exciting is that?! Hang on tight and take a look at one of the collections I'm sharing with you and an entry I did in my Bible with it and then go do some shopping!!

I was blessed enough to get some of the Delight in His Day collection and couldn't wait to dig in.
This first video is going to give you a close up look at the collection.

Illustrated Faith Delight in His Day collection.

And next up is a look at how I used it to create this awesome page.

Happy Heart Bible Journaling Page

When I saw this clear cut I couldn't help but sing the song we all know so well from growing up 'If you're happy and you know it then your face will surely show it'. LOL Now you'll be singing it all day too. I used some washi tape from a past kit to adhere the clear cut into the center of my Bible. Then I used some alpha stickers, rub ons, and the Delight in HIs Day stamp set to add my little song into the margins.

Sometimes I can be too serious and it usually shows up on my face so hopefully this will be a good reminder for me to smile and show that 'A glad hearts make a cheerful face' Proverbs 15:13.

How about it do you need a little reminder to smile?

Illustrated Faith Organizing Bags (Dayspring)

I'm so excited to be able to share with you two of the new Illustrated Faith products from Dayspring today. The organizing bag and kangaroo pouch. How cute are they? They both have that classic Shanna Noel look to them with fun designs and colors!

The organizing bag is large enough to carry everything you need to Bible Journal on the go including your Bible. The kangaroo pouch is perfect to add some of your basic go to supplies and hook right on to your Bible or planner like I have. Here's a close up look at both the bags and I've shared how I organize and pack my supplies for on the go.

I know we're all incredibly busy and on the go all the time so I'm stoked that I can have such a compact and cute way to keep me Bible Journaling no matter how busy life can get. I can carry all my favorite go to supplies with me everywhere now and the bag is a great conversation starter to share your faith with those around you! If you're like me sometimes it's hard to talk to people I don't know well but with an ice breaker like getting a complement on my bags it gives me the perfect opportunity to share about Bible Journaling and my faith.

You can pick both the 
up in the Dayspring store

Candlelit Dinner for 2 with Process Video (the ScrapRoom)

Today I have a layout made with the beautiful Pink Paislee Moonstruck collection in last months ScrapRoom kit. I had these photos of my son crashing our candlelit dinner for 2 when I was in the hospital having my youngest. The colors were perfect and I loved the heart paper so much!

With all the gold touches I couldn't resist doing some gold stitching on the layout. I added some rows at the bottom to write my journaling in.

Here's a look at the complete process

And a look at all the supplies I used

4H Double layout with Process Videos (The ScrapRoom)

Today I'm sharing a couple of layouts I created with last months ScrapRoom kits. The photos are from the same day and when I have those I often create two coordinating layouts so that each of my children can have their own page if they ever choose to want the layouts I've created about them.

The Jillibean Soup Hardy Hodgepodge collection had the perfect colors to match each set of the photos. Here's a look at the process for each of them.

4H Means Process Video

Here's a look at all the supplies I used for both layouts.

2 Cute with Process Video (the ScrapRoom)

I've finally made it to the weekend where I can scrap some and can't wait to get the layouts posted and shared with you. I will get them all up as I can! For this one I used my February Flavors of the Month kit from The ScrapRoom. If you haven't checked them out be sure to.

I love all things Simple Stories and the new Love and Adored collection is gorgeous. Even though it's a Valentine collection you can use it for so much more. I went back in the vault to scrap these photos of my daughter. The colors were perfect! I had a lot of fun with the background and did some painting to mimic the look of drawing on a chalkboard. I just love how it turned out.

You can see the whole process here.

All the bits and pieces from the ephemera pack were perfect to dress this layout up. 
Here's a look at all the supplies I used.
