Patterned Paper and Faith Journals

During these past months I’ve been working with prayer journals and bible verse journals. One of the things that I use the most are the patterned papers or scrapbook papers. They are great to decorate and personalized almost every craft project.

I wrote a post about how to make a prayer journal (that you can read here). I am still working on that journal, where I wrote my prayers and those prayers that have been answered by God. Also, I started a bible verse journal. Where I write my favorite bible verses or those verses I am studying.

Now, how do I use the papers and where do I find them?

First, I use them as backgrounds in my pages, as tabs, as tags and to journal in them. There are tons of uses for scrapbook paper!

I find papers in different places like:

Creative Market – I use those digital scrapbook papers you can buy (or free), I printed out and use them in the journals.

Yarisi & Co – This is an Etsy Store, specilized in stationery, envelopes, greeting cards and more! But, there is a assorted paper pack that is my favorite! It comes with different sizes, patterns, envelopes, tags and more! Perfect for journals!

Pinterest Search – You can make a pinterest search for digital scrapbook papers and you will find plenty of options. Again, you will need a printer.

Local or Hobby Stores – I know there is a few stores that you can find a variety of scrapbook papers. You can visit the store or buy online!

The possibilities with scrapbook papers are endless. I love to work with them in my faith journals. You should give it a try!

Bible Verse Journal

I love journals! I’ve been during these days working on a special journal. One about bible verses. I found out it’s like therapy to me, to create, decorate and study my favorite bible verses all at the same time. Here is a little bit about what I’ve doing.

Bible Verse Journal

Journaling is part of my life. I always love to take notes, record memories and thoughts. I started this little journal, writing my favorite bible verses.

You can follow my account on Instagram to see more ideas! Follow Here!

I take my time to decorate every entry and I do this in daily basis. I use papers, stickers, ephemera, and much more. I give some space for creativity. Then, I study those bible verses that have been a strenght for me and start writing them. These helps me with verse memorization too!

I got this small, lovely journal from Yarisi & Co, Follow Here! She has beautiful products like assorted papers, envelopes, decorated journals and more!

What about you? Do you like to record your favorite verses of the bible? This is a great idea for a gift or to have at hand a journal when you need some strengh from the Word of God.

The Book of Matthew from Alabaster Co.

One of my favorites books from the bible is Matthew. Matthew gives me along with the book of John a detailed story of the life of our Saviour Jesus. There is a book that combines the Word of God and art, photography, illustration.

It caught my attention to study the Gospel of Matthew along with very descriptive pictures giving me a more clearer idea of what I am reading.

I share with you today, a review of the Book of Matthew by Alasbaster Co. First of all, what is Alabaster Co and what they do?

Alabaster Co. began late one night when friends Bryan Chung and Brian Chung were deep in discussion on creativity and God. Reflecting on the direction culture was taking toward visual images, innovation and design, an idea was born: create a brand passionate about fully exploring the intersection of creativity, beauty, and faith.

I love this concept and the story behind it is one my favorites from the bible. When a woman breaks an alabaster jar… you can read it at Mark 14:1-9. Read more about Alabaster Co HERE!

5 Bible Studies that will change your life

Changes comes to us when we open our hearts to learn and acquire knowledge.  The bible says that we must renew our hearts, our thoughts and our actions in the spirit.  When something is changed in our hearts, everything else in us will be impacted by that change too.  New things start to happens, new thoughts, new actions, a new you start to emerge.  That is the result of a life committed to serve God and that pursues Him in prayer and studying the Word.

And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you].

Romans 12:2 (AMP)
