I am SO excited to see you today!!!
How's the hopping so far?!
I'll keep the chit chat to a minimum
because I have a TON of fun ideas for you :)
and you have a ton of hopping to do!
Today CardMaker Magazine has teamed up with
Illustrated Faith & Bella Blvd
to bring you an AMAZING Blog Hop!
Two of my absolute FAVORITES!!!
You should have hopped your way
to my little creative corner
from Stephanie Buice's
When you're all finished here with me,
hop on over to Nancy Damiano's
But before you go any further...
Be sure to start at
and remember to visit
because there you will find a
super crazy, super nice, super duper
Every thing in the pic above
could be YOURS!!!
And if you happen to lose your spot
along the hop,
just jump back my way
and find links to all of the
participating Design Team Members
at the end of this post.
This is going to be fun!
Are you ready?!
Illustrated Faith and Bella Blvd.
are leaders in the industry when it comes
to providing folks with
exceptional Bible Journaling supplies.
At my desk (or at least always near)
are my basket filled with
IF goodies (above),
and my IF paints, tools
and tub full of Devotionals-
which you can find at the
Illustrated Faith online store.
Someone got a tad bit jealous
of all the photos I was taking sooo...
Obviously, my favorite thing
to do with IF products is
I painted the page above,
stamped the butterflies from the
Fly Free and the title from
Homespun stamp sets,
added number stickers,
and finished off with a few
I absolutely love how
this adorable greeting card
turned out with all the fun IF goodies!
And just look at how cute that
Washi taped envelope is!
IF Washi tape is some of my
fave fave FAVEorite!!!
I made my card so the coffee cup
can be removed from the grass.
One of the sweetest parts
about the IF die cut pieces
is the Scripture reference
on the back of each piece.
So many people tell me,
"I don't know where to begin"
when they first start Bible Journaling.
That's what so nice about
these die cut prompts
from Illustrated faith...
they give you a place to begin.
A little Washi tape for my greeting
Ready to mail to my sweet niece!
Alright... I solemnly confess...
I am addicted to MINI ALBUMS.
There, I said it.
It's out in the open.
Now I can feel free to make
as many of these
A... DOR... A... BLE
File Folder Journals
as I like. HA!
One simple file folder,
trimmed one time
to create this fun little treasure!
Use it as a mini album,
junk journal, diary, list keeper,
YOU NAME IT!
I love the size because
it easily fits in my
car, purse, Bible bag, gym bag...
And just look how stinkin' cute
it is with all those fun
Illustrated Faith embellishments!
Where you see the baker's twine,
writing paper is tucked under the twine
and more can be added and added
and added and... well,
you get the idea.
I love making these cute little journals
grow and grow and grow!
There's even a side pocket
for my photos, ticket stubs, receipts,
IF journaling cards, or anything
else I might want to savor.
The stamp set featured in the photo above
is found in one of the Devo Kits
offered by Illustrated Faith.
Be sure to check those out!
Every now and then
I like to add my own sketchy goodness
to my IF Bible Journaling pages.
I really enjoyed how my whale
turned out looking so
proud of himself.
If you know the story of
Jonah and the whale,
then you know
this whale was honored
to do the will of God
by swallowing up
just to hurl him out on a beach
And if you don't know the story,
it's certainly one
you will find very interesting.
There ya have it!
I hope you enjoyed all the
I have to share with you.
That is one of the things I like most
about Illustrated Faith...
thanks to the expertise of
these products are packed full of
Thanks for hopping along today
and for dropping by to say "hi!"
I love your comments.
Keep them sweet
and I'll be sweetly blessed indeed.
