New Guest Check Loaded Folders

Today,  I want to introduce a new project and product I am working.  It's about using those lovely guest check tickets for different crafts projects.  I created a new product for my shop at Etsy that you can use it for bible journaling, junk journals, snail mail, scrapbook and much more!

Hello Everyone! It’s been a while since I wrote my last post. I have been working on some projects lately. But, here I am again.

Being a full time mom it’s not easy, but it’s possible and so rewarding. Right now, my baby just turned 1 year and 4 months old… wow, this is going fast. In the meantime, I try to enjoy every moment with him.

Today, I want to introduce a new project and product I am working. It’s about using those lovely guest check tickets for different crafts projects. I created a new product for my shop at Etsy that you can use it for bible journaling, junk journals, snail mail, scrapbook and much more!

Let’s see! – I created a small folder with those guest check tickets and loaded them with supplies.

What is included in those little folders? Stickers, paper clips (altered), sequins (wooohooo I love sequins), paper pieces, ephemera, flowers, ribbons and more.

The price is super affordable and there is only a few designs (one of a kind) actually. Check out the pictures for more details. Maybe this could be a DIY project for you or maybe you just want to buy something different already made. Head over the shop to see more options and new products!

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.

Making your own prayer journal

One project I wanted to start during this season was making my own prayer journal. But I wanted to make this project a “do it yourself project”. I wanted to take my time, step by step and enjoy the process.

While I work in this prayer journal I want to share with my readers the process and how I’ve been doing until I finished. So, here is a little bit about how you can make your very own prayer journal.

Make your own prayer journal:

First, I started decorating the front of the journal. What materials I used?
I got a notebook at Dollar Tree for $1 on my last trip to Orlando, Florida. Isn’t that amazing? To find so many things at super low prices at the Dollar Tree Stores?

Well, once I got my notebook… I found on Pinterest a free printable for bible journaling and got an extra sheet printed at my local school supply store to decorate my journal. I found out this printable so lovely and beautiful that I decided to use it for my journal.

I bought an assorted patterned paper pack at Yarisi&Co, that I wanted to get for a long time ago. Finally bought them! This pack comes with more than 50 assorted papers (different patterns and sizes) perfect for crafts projects.

I had some washi tape that I also used to decorate the journal.

Finally, used some paper pieces and tabs from Illustrated Faith that I already had. Here is a picture, you can see how I used all these materials. I just got creative! At the end of this post you can see all the links for the materials 😉

The tittle of my prayer journal is “Jesus, my first love”. Oohh… I also used some stamps at the end from Illustrated Faith too.

The bible tabs I used includes words like “love, passion, believe…” I thought they were very aligned with what I wanted to create. I just love the final touch they gave them to my journal.

As you can see, this is just the front of the journal. In the following posts I will sharing the other pages and how I decorated them. Stay tuned for the development of this project. Hope this motivates you to create your very own prayer journal. Also, I hope this gives you some ideas on how to start it.
