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!

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.

This amazing books is called “God bless you & good night” touch and feel by Hannah C. Hall. This book gives us the opportunity for our children to interact with the book through touching and feeling different textures. This helps them in their development. The book is perfect for children from the age of 0 to 5 years.

The story is short and easy to read. This allows us to interact more with the textures of the book while we read it.

In God Bless You and Good Night Touch and Feel, sleepy little ones are reminded of God’s blessings and how much they are loved. The delightful rhyming story takes readers through several scenes of snuggly animals who are getting ready for bed from putting on pj’s, brushing teeth, and saying good-night prayers. Now with added touch-and-feel elements, children can engage with the story even more. God Bless You and Good Night Touch and Feel will be a favorite part of the bedtime ritual for parents and children.

I share with you today what I’ve found so far that maybe will guide you too to find the perfect gift.

1. A Devotional Bible

I personally got a devotional bible and I think is a great gift for those who love to read the bible along with a devotional. Read this post about the (In)Courage Devotional Bible I recommend.

2. A Study Bible

I have like 3 study bibles. They’ve helped me so much with my growth as christian. They come in different versions. This makes a perfect gift for those who likes to spend some time in the bible.

3. A bible based Book

Not all books are good for christians or maybe do not edify us, maybe it’s not based in the bible. I purchased once a book about the life of David by Beth Moore and It helped me so much to understand his story.

4. Children’s Bible

When I got pregnant the first thing I bought for my baby was a bible. Kids also should receive these kind of gifts and start to learn about the bible.

5. Bible Journaling Starter Kit

This could be a great gift for those who love or maybe want to start trying bible journaling. There are plenty of kits available for example from Illustrated Faith. Look out for my bible journaling pinterest board for some ideas.

6. Handmade Bookmarks

Faith and christian inspired gifts are a must. It maybe simple but with a great purpose. Bookmarks for bibles make a great gift idea. Click here to see plenty of them.

7. Antoined Oil for Prayer

So far, this is my favorite. I have a few antoined oils that I use in prayer. I recommend the Abba Oils, are thr ones that I use. Click here to see more.

8. Worship Music

A good worship music can help everyone to connect with God too. So maybe an Itunes gift card, a CD or some downloaded songs can be a great option.

9. Personalized Mug

I’ve made a search about this and found out some great options at Etsy. There is a lot of shops there offering customization. And you can add a bible verse to a mug. Here is a search for you Bible Verse Mug.

10. Scripture Print

Well, on this one there are plenty of options too on Etsy (Scripture Prints search). But you can also can make it yourself. You can create your own print with Creative Market. Even they give free fonts and clip art weekly! Use Canva to finish your print. Then, go to a local shop to print it out and included them in your gifts.

I thinks here is a pretty easy and affordable list of gifts for christians, for you and your loved ones. The most important is to edify!
