I have used the NEW Faith Sampler stamp set to make projects for the hop today!!!! I have soooooooooo many ideas for this set because of it has multiple sentiments that work for different phrases and sayings. It's perfect for cards, tags, bookmarks, index cards (for scripture), and bible journaling! LOOOOOOOVE

I've created two bible journaling designs using this new set. The first one is for 1 Thessalonians 1:4 which says, "For we know, brothers loved by God, that He has chosen you". I wanted to do a page about who I am (what I am) in Christ. I chose this verse because it states that I am loved and chosen. **I wish there was a verse that listed everything we are in Christ- loved, chosen, free, forgiven, valuable, etc! LOL:) 

In this set there are many words/sentiments, and I decided to create tabs with the following words "loved", "forgiven", and "worthy"--- which take NOTE: I know I'm not really worthy... but because of Christ, I am "valuable". Under each tab, I wrote some verses to remind me of who I am in Christ. 


For the word "loved" I actually masked together the word "hope" and "loving". I used the "p" as the "d"!!! Masking stamps is one of my favorite crafting techniques to use. 

For my second page, I created a tip-in using a Project Life journaling card. I have a hard time remembering that God is good ALL the time and in ALL places- that means on the "mountains" (in the highs) and in the "valleys (the lows, hard times). 

It's sooooooo easy to praise the Lord when things are going the way I want them to. But when God says "No" or "Wait", it's hard to say He is good. So I created this little tip-in to help me remember that He is good ALWAYS! This tip-in can be found near Ecclesiastes 7:14 which says, "In the day of prosperity be joyful, and in the day of adversity consider: God has made the one as well as the other."
I actually used the PS Religious Word "God" die to create the word "good". And I ended up using three journaling cards that were the same so all of my die cut pieces blended in to the background:) LOL! 


Be sure to stop by the PS blog for details about this blog hop and giveaway! And don't forget to leave some love on the DT's blogs:) 


That's it for me today- THANK YOU so much for stopping by! Be blessed!
