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.
