Bible journaling recently caught my eye and I was totally drawn to it. I had to try it! Over the summer I started playing with water colors and fell in love! I'm defiantly a beginner and just playing, but I'm having lots of fun with it! I am by no means a perfectionist, so the pages crinkling a bit from the water and bleeding through the page doesn't bother me. As a matter a fact to me it adds to the artsiness. I have a bible journal Pinterest board here if you want to get some more inspiration and ideas. I practiced in an old bible before starting in my new journal bible. If you're not sure of your style or if you will like something I highly recommend testing it out 1st on an old bible or book. For me, it helps the scripture come alive, much like the visual bible. It speaks to me in a different way and I'm able to express spiritual thoughts or scriptures in a different way. It brings the scripture alive.

I picked things I bought in bulk or cute things that I just haven't gotten around to using.

We totally redid our room and switched our bedroom and the office. Then we built a loft for our bed above my now scraproom. I now have a nice big open space to scrapbook!here!

I started working on our Hawaiian vacation album from June. The below layouts are some of the pages from our 1st 2 days. So far both days are 5 pages long. I'm thinking there might be a volume 2 of our trip, yikes! Bellow are some close ups of my above layout.
Some close ups of my above layout.
I loved all the beautiful exotic plants and flowers in Hawaii!
I saved and pressed some plants and flowers from our trip to include in the scrapbook.
I added some decorative glass pebbles to this journal card.
I really didn't want to loose the tops of these pictures under the Diamond Head title because I think they're interesting enough to keep, so I kept them.
Some flowers I pressed that I brought home from Hawaii.

My 10 year old daughter actually started this jar for me. I have loved my paper hole punches and used them a ton! I just used 1/2 a jar on my recent Project Life projects and have been using my paper scraps to punch more paper dots to refill my jar. I also add random sparkles and sequins to make it pretty. I punch tickets and book pages and paper scraps. I love the look of it and it's fun and easy to use. Just run some adhesive and shake some dots and press to stick.Or sew some between some transparency for a shaker pocket, great for Project Life. Be creative and have fun with your homemade confetti!

I decided to try my hand at making Project Life cards out of all my scrap paper.
I had fun playing with different scraps, tapes and ribbons I had laying around.
I tried sticking some things from my whole punch jar to the top of one, I like how it turned out!
I enjoyed making these! I think I will defiantly do this more in the future!here. Come check it out, there's still lots of things left. I take Paypal.

here. My goal is to sell all the extra craft stuff and buy my dream desk to store it where it's all in view and with in reach. I have already purchased this awesome cart to store my Project Life stuff.
Below is my desk. I now put my projects to be done in piles on my work desk. I used it today and got a bunch of forms filled out that have been sitting next to my bed. Now that I have a designated "to do desk" I got it done! I also have a goal to get at least 10 mins. of creative time a day at my desk. Little by little I will get stuff done! Before I was only scrapbooking 2 x per year when I would go away with my scrap buddy. Now I will be able to be continually working on it and all those mins. add up quick! Before you know it I'll have a book done! I've also switched over almost completely to Project Life. I love it because you need way less stuff to do it! Yet you can still be creative and you can still add the occasional full page LO if you choose to! I'm just so excited to make my space usable again!! It's been too long since I've used my scrap space! Happy scraping!
