How I’m Journaling: Gratitude Documented

Illustrated Faith and Dayspring have released three new collections this month: Faith > Fear, Gratitude Documented, and Advent. You can buy the items individually, or pick up the journaling kit that has an assortment of commonly used items for Bible journaling. Dayspring was kind enough to send me the Gratitude Documented journaling kit, and it is so cute! To see my unboxing video of the kit, the coordinating stamp set and other goodies, click here. (Please note that this post contains affiliate links. This means I receive a small commission when you purchase through my links, but there is no additional cost to you.)

Instead of posting a “review” type post, I thought it would be fun to show you the two different ways I plan to use my Gratitude Documented supplies. This kit is seriously packed with so much stuff that I’ll definitely be able to use it over the next three months leading up to Thanksgiving. What better way to spend some reflection time while journaling during some of the busiest months of the year than to focus on prayers of thanksgiving? 

Even though this kit doesn’t have any devotional content, every single die cut piece has a verse on the back to prompt journaling. That means 39 pieces equals 39 verses of possible journaling. Not only that but the stamps (sold separately) can be used over and over again, which is the main reason why I had to buy the stamps to go with my new kit. It’s always tempting to hoard favorite pieces, waiting for just the right “page” or right “verse” or right “moment” to use it, at least it is for me. I would encourage you to use it up, just like I’m trying to do! Don’t be afraid to create because you might “mess up” your pretty pieces. Mistakes happen, messes happen, and some of my favorite or most memorable entries were happy accidents that I go back to over and over again. After all, once you use your favorite pieces, it’s not like they’re gone forever; they’re right there on the page for you to enjoy and remember what God taught you in that moment. 

So the first way that I will be using this kit is in my Bible. For my first page using the kit, I decided to jump in and use one of my favorite pieces: the “blessed” tree stump. I don’t know why, but I just thought it was the cutest. Luckily there’s also a stamp in the stamp set that has a similar stump without the words, and there is a sticker piece, so there will be other opportunities to use this design. 

This Bible is getting quite full and it took me awhile to find a die cut that had a verse I hadn’t journaled that page already. I eventually settled on the leaf that had Colossians 2:6-7 on it, which reads, “Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him, and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.” That word “rooted” helped tie in my cute little tree stump with the words “blessed.” I find that when I am the most rooted in Christ is when I can appreciate my blessings the most, because He has truly blessed me beyond what I deserve, and it’s so easy to forget that. 

This particular page also happened to have some shadowing from messy paint on the other side, so it was a great opportunity to use a tip-in from the kit to mask that in the margin. I also got a chance to use my new Illustrated Faith acrylic paints, and I really liked how the pink paint came out the color as displayed on the tube: very bright and vibrant!

The second way that I’ll be using the Gratitude Documented kit and stamps is in my Faith planner. I just recently found an Illustrated Faith 2017-2018 planner on clearance at Hobby Lobby and couldn’t resist. I’ve been needing a more organized way to keep track of all my tasks that seem to be adding up as the holidays approach, and I’ve always loved keeping a physical planner instead of just using my phone calendar. Since I don’t really need all the weekly layout space for planning and lists, I’ve been using that section each week to write out verses from a weekly scripture challenge I’m using based on the topic of contentment. I felt like contentment and gratitude go together very well, so it was great timing to be using these verses with this kit. 

Each Sunday I’ve been trying to sit down and write out my weekly verses and then decorate the leftover white space. I like writing out all four verses at once and then decorating the spread in one sitting, so then I can flip back to it throughout the week and read over the verses. With two young children, it’s often hard to commit to a daily task of this kind during the busy week, because sometimes I just don’t get enough free time. But I always have a little bit more time on the weekend to write them out when my husband is off from work, and then I can always find a few minutes each day during the weekdays to reread my verses. I’ve only been doing this for two weeks now, but I’ve found that it helps me to have a better mindset to face the week. 

Illustrating in my planner also gives me an opportunity to use some of the bigger pieces that I may not want to use in my Bible. I knew that I probably wouldn’t use this “I am thankful for…” die cut in my Bible, but it filled up the bottom blank section of my planner page perfectly. I also plan to use some of the tip-ins with my planner as well, because I think some of the writing prompts will fit in better where I can have more space for writing than the margin of my Bible. 

So those are two of the ways I’ll be using my Gratitude Documented kit and stamps over the next few months. I definitely think these new collection kits are a great starter for newer Bible journalers, or for busy moms like me that just need some simple pieces to get you into the word throughout the week.

Created to Create 2 Kit + Watercolors [Review]

I hope you had a relaxing Labor Day weekend! It’s time to jump back into the week with a new blog post. Today I’ll be reviewing the Created to Create 2 devotional kit and Illustrated Faith Watercolor set from Dayspring. You can see a full unboxing video here on my YouTube Channel, and purchase your own kit here (affiliate link).

When I heard that the kit for September would be a sequel to the original Created to Create kit, I knew it would be a good one! After I received my kit, I was pleasantly surprised to see the fun colors and inspiring content; it made me want to jump into my Bible right away. The September kit definitely spoke to my personal style more than the previous kit. I was also happy to see that the content was similar but not an exact repeat, especially for those like myself that already had the original Created to Create. 

Some of my favorite pieces in this month’s devotional kit would have to be the cute little scissors stamp, the die cut banner pieces, the giant word die cuts, and all the colorful stickers. I also love that this kit is an opportunity for me to explore this topic again and do different journaling entries. I worked through the original Created to Create kit when I was still figuring out my journaling style, and some of those entries didn’t turn out how I was hoping. So being able to journal through the sequel gives me an opportunity to try some different things this time. 

I will admit that my one criticism for the new Created to Create 2 kit is that the stamps and some of the die cuts are a bit heavy on the paint brush theme, and I wish there had been a bit more variety as to those pieces. I would have loved to see a watercolor set stamp or paint swipe stamp included. However I do have the original stamp set to supplement this kit, but for those who don’t have access to the original stamp set might be slightly disappointed. I still highly recommend this kit because there’s so much good stuff, the colors are super fun, and it’s such a great way to explore God our creator and how he has infused us with creativity. 

In addition to the Created to Create 2 kit, Dayspring also sent me the Illustrated Faith watercolor set to share with you and try out for myself. I have had my eye on this set ever since it came out, so I was thrilled to find out I would finally get a chance to have a set of my own. I love the portable size and the fact that it comes with a travel brush. This would be a great set to take on the go. 

These watercolors are artist quality, which means they are not chalky, they are smooth on the page when dry, and they don’t bleed through! All are common concerns from Bible journalers, so this would be a great set to add to your stash. The colors are vibrant, and of course match well with other Illustrated Faith pieces. Today, Tuesday September 5th is the last day to get this set for only $10, so go grab a set of your own here. I will be doing a process video with this watercolor set, so make sure you are subscribed to my YouTube Channel here.

Illustrated Faith Turns 3 + My Story [Giveaway]

Illustrated Faith turns 3 today! To celebrate this milestone, Dayspring is hosting a giveaway for one lucky winner to receive ALL 19 of the devotional kits that Illustrated Faith and Dayspring have done together. So yes, that means even the retired kits like the original Created to Create. For your chance to win, enter the giveaway here between now and September 5th.
img_2661-2I am so grateful for discovering this wonderful community of Bible Journaling! I started officially Bible Journaling on January 1, 2016 after a very difficult and painful church experience that had left me broken and distant. But God sought me and brought me back into his word so that he could heal my heart. Expressing my worship and prayers creatively through illustrating in my Bible has brought such a renewal to my crushed spirit and healed me in many ways. The community of creatives illustrating in their Bibles gave me a chance to interact with other Christians again without worry of being hurt again.

I’ve also never shared so much of my faith before publicly, and I love that my illustrated Bible pages have given me that opportunity! I’ve had the opportunity to lead a Bible journaling night with my friends, and this month I’ll be starting a monthly gathering at my home to share Bible journaling with friends on an ongoing basis. I’ve also just recently become a Dayspring affiliate and part of the Illustrated Faith launch team, which means I get to share products that I already use and love!

I can’t wait to see where Illustrated Faith will take me in the years ahead, but I know one thing: God is faithful and he never leaves me.  He has created me to be passionate about creativity! I’d love to hear your story of how you got started Bible journaling, so feel free to share in a comment below! If you want to get started Bible journaling for the first time, feel free to ask me questions in a comment. Here are some tips from Illustrated Faith for getting started:

Hermione Granny Stripe Blanket [Free Pattern]

In celebration of Harry Potter’s birthday today, I decided to reread all the books while working on a special scrap blanket. I’m calling this the Hermione Granny Stripe Blanket, because I can imagine Hermione stitching away on all her scrap yarn (with her magic knitting needles [or crochet hook in this case] of course) while reading a good book.

This pattern is slightly different from my Straight Granny Blanket Pattern, because I wanted something with a tighter weave. Because I have not actually finished my blanket yet, this pattern will be a work in progress. I’ll continue to add to it when I get to the border, and might offer it as a free PDF download once it’s finished. My main reason for posting this pattern is because I wanted to make this blanket with a larger hook size. I’m not claiming to be the first person to ever come up with this, I’m just wanting to offer my version of how I’m making this blanket, and I hope you find it helpful!

If you would like to make your own Hermione Granny Stripe Blanket, feel free to use the hashtag #hermionegrannystripe on Instagram and tag me @kountingsheep because I’d love to see what you come up with! So with a big Happy Birthday to Harry, let’s get this blanket party started!

Hermione Granny Stripe Blanket

Size J crochet hook (6mm)

Worsted weight yarn scraps (examples include Vanna’s Choice, I Love This Yarn, Red Heart Soft, Caron One Pound)

Scissors, tapestry needle for weaving in ends

Gauge: not essential for this project

Note: I am using each color for two rows. If I end up running out of a color mid-row, I’ll just switch to a new color. I’m also just sort of grabbing colors randomly when it’s time to change colors.

With first color, Ch 155. Sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across. Turn. 154 sc.

Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as dc here and throughout), 1 dc in same stitch, *skip next 2 sts, 3 dc in next st (known as 3dc group here and throughout). Repeat from * across to last 3 sts. Skip next 2 sts, 2 dc in last st, changing colors in last dc. Turn. 50 3dc groups.

Row 3: With new color, ch 3. Skip next st, and working between the skipped st and the 3dc group, 3dc group. Work a 3dc group between each 3dc group of the previous row across to the last two sts. Skip next st, dc in last st. Turn. 51 3dc groups.

Row 4: Ch 3, 1 dc in between the first st of the previous row and the first 3dc group. Work a 3dc group between each 3dc group of the previous row across to the last 4 sts. Skip next 3dc group, 1 dc in between the last two st. Dc in last st, changing colors to new color. Turn. 50 3dc groups.

Repeat Rows 3-4 until Blanket reaches desired length. [my finished measurements coming soon] Fasten off. Weave in all the millions of ends (or work them in as you go, which is my preferred method. It means more work as you crochet, but then all the ends are taken care of when you’re done).

Border: [instructions coming soon]

Persevere Devotional Kit [Review]

I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical about the changes to the Illustrated Faith monthly kit, Persevere. When I received my kit in the mail, I wasn’t exactly sure where to start. I looked over each piece and read through the devotional cards. As someone who likes structure, it was a bit daunting to not have the devotional booklet anymore. Today I actually had a chance to sit down and journal using the kit, and I had my “aha” moment for how I’m going to use it. I have to say that I think this new kit is really going to appeal to my personal style of journaling and give me the freedom to pursue other studies throughout the month in addition to working through the Persevere Kit. It took me a long time to create my first page in my Bible and my journal using Persevere, but now that I’ve done one day, I’m ready to share my review, as well as some ideas for how I will be working through it. I am finding myself gaining more and more excitement about the new format of the Persevere Kit, and I hope you will join me! Click here to purchase your own kit, and continue reading more below.

First, I want to give you an idea for the content inside the kit. You can also watch my unboxing video here on my YouTube channel to see more. The things that remain the same in the kit are: a full roll of washi tape, a welcome note card from Shanna Noel, and a stamp set. The stamps are a smaller 3×4 size, but still have plenty of variety for journaling. The things that are new: die cuts that are already cut for you, heart shaped tip-ins, journaling/devotional cards, thinner stickers, and a smaller string-tie envelope.

4 cardstock devotional cards and 4 cardstock journaling cards replace the 14-day devotional booklet of the past kits. Although I like having the structure of a guided study guide, I personally struggled with sustaining momentum for all 14 days. I was also torn about what to do with the notebooks once I was finished with them, because I normally keep just one big journal, and having a bunch of little journals made me feel disorganized.

I like to use a blank journal in addition to my journaling Bible, and I don’t really like having too many different notebooks/journals/bibles to keep track of. Now with the journaling cards, I have the freedom to use whatever journal I prefer. I think this will appeal to many people who, like me, prefer a certain type of journal/notebook/binder/planner/bible. You can just add the cards to your favorite journal, rather than using a journal provided for you.
I’m really in love with the floral designs of the stamps and scattered throughout the kit, as well as the gold foil accents everywhere. The quality of the products is amazing considering it’s only $20 for the whole thing! A lower price point is definitely very appealing to me, since we live on a tight budget and the old price point was often out of reach for me to participate monthly.

I’ve grown really fond of ways to make Bible journaling a bit easier and faster since I often have to squeeze my time in during naptime or after my babies go to bed, so having lots of paper pieces already cut for me is so great. There is a generous amount of die cuts included that match the style of the kit. I especially like that there are extra verse references on some of the smaller die cuts to also encourage more journaling ideas.

Another way to make journaling a bit easier is lots of stickers! They are all so pretty that I had a hard time using a few in my first day of journaling, because I want to make them last. I like that there are more tab options and they are also bigger than the previous kit’s cardstock sticker tabs. I also like that most of these stickers are fairly small, so that means a lot more to go around.

As I mentioned above, I finally had my aha moment of how I’m going to use the Persevere kit. The great thing about it is, you can use the kit in your own unique way, and I’ve already seen some great ideas from others! My plan is to use 1 devotional card and 1 journaling card per week, so 2 journaling entries per week for a total of 8 entries in the month. I usually start to wane after about 7 or 8 days in past devotionals, so I thought this was a good plan for me. I will also be using the cards in my blank journal as a way to write out some more lengthy prayers than I would typically put in my bible as well as do some scripture writing based on the verses provided. I then will use the other embellishments and stamps to journal the verse on the card in my Bible. If the card doesn’t have a verse, then that’s where the verses on the paper pieces can come in.

I’m really excited to journal through this kit now that I’ve had time to process the change and think through how I’m going to use the pieces to fit my personal style. There’s not just one right way to use the Persevere kit, and I love that the redesign seems to have allowed for more room for creativity and individuality while still working through it together as a community.

If you have any questions, leave a comment below and I would be happy to answer them!

“I Am” Devotional Kit [Review]

img_1469.jpgThanks to the generosity of Dayspring, I was sent the July Illistrated Faith devotional kit “I Am” to review and showcase as I work through it over the next month. This was my first new kit for 2017, so I was thrilled to see how floral and feminine it was, two things that appeal to me. The pictures do not do this kit justice; it’s even prettier in person. If you would like to see an unboxing video I did, click here to see it on my YouTube channel.

The devotional was written by Melissa Garcia of @pienthesky on Instagram. She is known for her acrylic flowers and beautiful hand-lettering, so the whole design of this set reflects that. But more than that, she has written a 14-day devotional that guides me to dig deeper into who I Am in Christ. I’ve only had a chance to read the first day, but I’m already enjoying her writing style and the prompts that encourage me to reflect.

The first day spoke about being Fearless, which was so timely for me as I have been facing a lot of fears lately. And the great thing about these devotionals is that they aren’t dated, so you can go through this booklet at any time, at any pace. I have a hard time keeping on track with dated reading plans, so this is perfect for people like me.

My favorite part of the kits is always the stamp set, and I have yet to have a floral set, so this was perfect to add to my stash. I don’t have a lot of time to do freehand drawing the way I used to a year ago when I first started Bible journaling, so I’m always looking for stamp sets that appeal to my style. It’s much faster to lay down some paint and stamp over it, especially when I have an active toddler and young infant vying for my attention. But spending time in my Bible is a priority to me, and using the Illustrated Faith devotional kits helps me stay motivated to do just that.

The next part that I really enjoy about this kit is the stickers. I’m so happy that the kits now include alphabet stickers and more embellishments than just the backer card, because it gives me more opportunities to create cohesive entries without too much work. It’s always fun to add extra items from my stash, but it’s nice to have double the options from within the kit itself.

The zipper bag is another new addition this year, and it is so handy! I like to keep all my supplies together while I’m working through the devotional, so the bag helps to accomplish that. It’s the perfect size to fit everything plus a few extras, especially for those that don’t have a travelers notebook to hold the inserts (like me). I’m all about organization and this bag helps with that. And let’s take a minute to admire the washi tape: whoa! I like to add the themed washi tape to each of my Bible entries as well as the devotional itself, and the washi rolls that come with the kits are always a generous amount. The mini floral print on this washi tape is very pretty and includes multiple colors from the theme, so it will look great on every page I create.

Last but not least are the backer card embellishments, margin journaling cards and magnetic bookmark. There are just so many options for illustrating with this kit, and each piece is carefully thought out and designed to enhance the devotional booklet. The ultimate goal of this kit is to “dig deeper” into the Word and who “I Am” in Christ, and I can’t wait to see how God works in me over the next month.

Through Christ Devotional Completed

I finally made it through all 14 entries of the Illustrated Faith “Through Christ” devotional. It’s taken me since January, but I’m so proud of myself for actually finishing a devotional all the way through. I tend to lose interest before finishing, so it’s nice to know I can actually finish. 

I really enjoyed using a different color for each entry and also trying new techniques with acrylic paint on some of the last few entries. I also spent a lot more time writing out prayers in my Bible to go along with many of the entries. I felt God drawing me back over and over again to His word. That’s the beauty of Bible journaling to me: it’s not just about the art, it’s about how God is working on and speaking to my heart. 

I’m now working my way through the How He Loves Us Devotional from last year, and I will have an exciting new kit to show you in a couple of days. Make sure you are following my blog so you can receive an email every time I post.

Thrive Devotional Journaling Bible [Review]

One of my gifts for Mother’s Day this year was the new Thrive Devotional Journaling Bible, released last September by Tyndale. After looking through this beautiful Bible, I thought it would be fun to write a review for the blog and share my initial thoughts. I’m getting close to retiring my HCSB Illustrators Bible, and the Thrive Bible will be the next one I journal in. I’m excited for the Thrive Bible because not only is it a journaling Bible, but it also contains 365 devotionals, written by Sheri Rose Shepherd. 

Here’s the description from the publisher: “The THRIVE journaling devotional Bible is for every woman who wants to know God more deeply and follow Him more closely. God’s design for His children is that they live flourishing, fulfilling, joy-filled lives in Christ. Bestselling author and beloved conference speaker Sheri Rose Shepherd has devoted over 30 years of her ministry to helping women learn how to thrive in Christ, reflect God’s glory, and gain an eternal perspective. Sheri Rose invites women to join her on a year-long journey through the Bible in the THRIVE. The daily devotionals capture the very heart of her ministry by helping women discover their identity in Christ, God’s purpose and plan for their lives, and how to flourish in a faith that is pure, genuine, and life-giving. Each day’s devotional reading contains a key Scripture, a love letter from God, a reflection from Sheri Rose, a treasure of truth, and a special prayer for the reader. Sheri Rose encourages women to leave all of their concerns and struggles at the foot of the cross so they can truly thrive as the women God created them to be. This beautiful women’s journaling devotional Bible features a natural shabby chic fabric with decorative blue stitching, a THRIVE tag stitched to the front, round corners, cream page edges, and a matching ribbon marker.”

In order to accommodate the extra content while still maintaining a portable size, it is slightly wider than most journaling Bibles. It also has the Biblical text organized as double column instead of single column. However the wider size also means wider margins for more journaling on some pages, especially the devotional pages. The margins are lightly lined to help guide notetaking and written out prayers.  

The New Living Translation is quickly becoming my favorite, and I like how geneologies are listed as a list for easier reading. The daily prayers, book introductions, “treasures of truth,” and character profiles help enhance the text while reading in between the devotionals. I especially like that the devotionals are numbered 1-365, rather than dated (Jan-Dec) so you can start and stop any time of year without feeling guilty to follow a specific date. Each devotional also gives the page number at the bottom for the next devotional, since the placement of the devotionals vary from book to book. 

The light blue and cream color scheme is visually pleasing and not too overpowering.   It has some very subtle flower details, so for those who don’t care for florals won’t find them too noticeable. The pages are thin like most Bible pages, so there is ghosting of the text and color design. However the text font is a good size and still very readable. 

The supplemental material at the front includes a letter from Sheri Rose Shepherd, as well as tips on how to use and study this Bible. A Bible reading plan is included with a convenient checklist to help mark your progress. It is dated, but this is the only section that includes dates and obviously you can ignore that and follow your own pace. Since the focus of this Bible is to guide women through a yearlong journey to Thrive through Bible reading and devotions, there aren’t maps or concordance included in the back. The purpose of this Bible is to speak to a woman’s heart through the various tasks and trials she may face. 

Overall, I highly recommend this Bible for women looking to Journal their way through a yearlong journey of Bible reading and devotions directed towards the thriving heart of a woman. I can’t wait to use this Bible and add my writing and art, as well as my heart, to the margins.
