Technique: using journaling cards as background, layering stickers/ephemera as main element, stretching supplies
Technique: sewing, layering, mix/matching collections, using journaling cards as background
Technique: fussy cutting (those little flowers are from the titles of the papers)

Bella Blvd: May Guest Designer RECAP (bible journaling)

Hello, friends! 

I had the MOST amazing opportunity to create with  Bella Blvd blog this month! If you haven't been over to their blog for inspiration, check it out HERE.

I shared some sneak peeks of my cards and bible journaling pages at the beginning of May, and today I would like to share the full photos and stories behind each one. If you want, you can read all about it HERE and HERE on the BB blog (and leave some love)! 

First up, one of my favorite bible journaling pages! I sometimes take God’s grace for granted. It’s always there. It’s more than enough to get me through daily/hard situations. And sometimes (if I’m being real honest) I don’t give grace out because I feel like those that need it from me don’t deserve it... but I’m the one that doesn’t deserve God’s grace! That’s why I should give it out more freely than I do! I pray that I would remember that while I don’t deserve His grace He gave it to me, a sinner deserving of wrath. May this reminder help me to share and give grace to those who have hurt me or those who are hard to love. [Luke 6:27-36]
The next page is another favorite of mine! Fear tends to creep into my heart more than it should. When I was designing this page, I looked at the back of the ephemera pieces for a verse that would jump start my idea, which ended up being Isaiah 35:4. Sometimes Bible Journaling isn’t always writing out a whole bunch of details, prayers, etc. Many times I like to just add a statement and underline the scriptures that I want to meditate on/remember.

My last page has to be my MOST FAVORITE page ever! LOL! I’ve been thinking of eternal rewards and the fruit that I am producing in my life. I really want to see more fruit and that comes with obeying the Spirit and walking with Him. The Holy Spirit already dwells in me, and producing fruit is a continuous action (making it a habit and lifestyle; Gr. verb “walk” translated in these verses. This thought actually goes well with the IF Fruit of the Spirit ephemera piece “Work In Progress”! LOL!). When I submit to the Spirit’s promptings/control, I am growing in my spiritual life. The fruit of the Spirit is the evidence of this growth! I pray that I will remember this and continue to seek God, obeying Him, and walking with the Spirit!
 

I had sooooo much fun creating these pages! Bella Blvd and Illustrated Faith are some of my absolute favorite papers to use for projects ❤️

Come back tomorrow for the recap of my Bella Blvd card projects and creations! That's it for me today! THANKS so much for stopping by, and THANK YOU x100000000 for your love, encouragement, and support! Be blessed ❤️ Sav
