Bible Journaling with Watercolor

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.

Fun Gifts for a Scrapbook Retreat from my Stash



I picked things I bought in bulk or cute things that I just haven't gotten around to using. 
 The finished product up close. This took time, but not any extra money and I still have cute gifts to share at the scrapbook retreat. It's a win win!
 I made some simple PL cards by wrapping the top with washi tape. Then selected some things I have in excess to make a cute little gift.

 I had some rolls of glitter tape, so I measured and cut little strips to add to all the kits.
Then I wrapped a PL card with 3 different washi tapes to include in each package. I found cute paper clips I had in my office stash and clipped everything together. Then I just stuck them in little zip lock bags to keep them nice. Tada! So you don't need to go out and buy gifts, many times if you look around you can get creative with what you already have and aren't using!

Christmas Photo Card Scrapbook


I started putting our photo Christmas card and letter in an album in 1999 when we did our 1st photo Christmas card. When I started getting photo Christmas cards from our friends and family, I started adding those photo cards to the album as well. Here's a couple of pages from this years additions. I put the whole cards when i can fit them. Sometimes I crop the picture out to make it fit. But I save every one and enjoy looking through it every year when we pull it out at Christmas time!

My New Organized Scrap Room


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! 
    
 I minimized my stash in the fall and sold a ton of things. I still have more items for sale here!

 A place for everything! Now I can actually see what I have and find things! This makes me more excited to use my space! My goal is to catch up on my scrapbooking this year!!
