Praise The Lord – Psalms 66 Bible Journaling

Joy Clair Color By Faith

Hello everyone… Helen is here today and I have a Bible journaling page to share with you. It is about God’s character, works, and promises from the book of Psalms 66. For those, we worship Him and shout joyful noise to His holy name!

Joy Clair Color By Faith Praise The Lord Psalms 66 Bible Journaling

Shout for joy to God, all the earth;

sing the glory of his name;

give to him glorious praise!

Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds!

So great is your power that your enemies come cringing to you.

All the earth worships you

and sings praises to you;

they sing praises to your name.” Selah

Come and see what God has done:

he is awesome in his deeds toward the children of man.

(Psalms 66:1-5, ESV)

I created using the Praise The Lord stamp set, one of the new Color By Faith collection. On my page, I also used Clear Gesso, Gelatos, Acrylic Paints, Archival Ink Pad, Water, and Washi Tapes.

I am sharing a tutorial at Joy Clair Blog today. I hope you can find some inspirations at Joy Clair blog. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Bible Journaling on Ephesians 1:11-14

Graciellie Design

Hello everyone… Happy Saturday! I hope you all have a fabulous week so far… Today I have a Bible Journaling on Ephesian 1:11-14 to share with you all.

Graciellie Design In Christ Alone Bible Journaling on Ephesians 1:11-14

In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will, so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory. In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory.”

Ephesians 1:11-14

In these verses you can find the truth and confirmation that only in Him, of Him, and through Him we can find assurance of our salvation, inheritance in Christ and promises. No one else in this world can do that to us. Only GOD can. He does that only through Christ alone.

Our family lost 2 dear family relatives this month. We were sad but also at the same time we have hope and joy knowing that both of them lived their lives trusting and had their faith in Christ Jesus. We will miss them a lot!

My prayer for you today that you find confident, hope and faith in Christ alone. No matter in what situation or circumstance you are in right now, seek Him in His presence where you receive the blessings He has provided for you today. Praise Him in your situation for who He is and what He has done in your life in the past, for He is faithful God and God of hope. He can save you today!

Graciellie Design In Christ Alone Bible Journaling on Ephesians 1:11-14

To journal this truth in my journaling Bible today, I created a vellum insert using one of the new digital stamp from Graciellie Design. You can create any projects using this In Christ Alone Digital Stamp.

First, I open the flower file and sentiment file with Silhouette Studio Design Software on my computer. You can use all Graciellie Design digital stamps with any picture editing programs and even Word program.

On the Silhouette Studio, I drew a rectangle with the size of the journaling Bible page. Next, I copied and pasted the flower twice and positioned them at each corner of the page. Then I copied and pasted the phrase and positioned it in the middle of the page. I resized and moved them around to fit the page and once I was happy with it, I printed the design on a vellum paper using inkjet printer in black and white.

I let the printed page to dry over night. You can always use craft heater to dry the ink only the down side of this technique is that the paper is large and will wrinkle.

I then colored the flowers with ShinHan Touch Twin makers. And after the inks were dry, I sprinkled some white acrylic spray paint on it using fan brush for extra snowy look on it.

Graciellie Design In Christ Alone Bible Journaling on Ephesians 1:11-14

Once all mediums were dried well in few minutes, I trimmed it down using the rectangles lines as the guide. I added the vellum insert page on the Bible using ScorTape 1/8″ double-sided tape.

I hope you find this tutorial easy to follow and inspire you to keep journaling God’s words in creative way to express your love to Him.

THANK YOU so much for stopping by my blog today. May you have a blessed day!

Our Daily Bread Designs: White As Snow Bible Journaling Page

Hello everyone…Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs December Release. And I have I created a Bible Journaling Page to share with you.

For more inspiration using the December Release be sure to visit the ODBD Blog and visit each designer’s blog to read more about their projects:

Cathy * Sandee * Dawn * Diana * Kathy * Helen * Lori

Our Daily Bread Designs White As Snow Bible Journaling Page

On my journaling page today I use the White As Snow Stamp Die/Duo Set, Trees & Deer Dies, Curvy Slopes Dies, Snow Crystal Dies, and the new Christmas Collection 2017 Paper Pad.

Our Daily Bread Designs White As Snow Bible Journaling Page

I created the background with Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Crayons that I added on the page directly with finger. They blend great with a bit of water on the finger, but not much. I simply dap my finger on a wet wipes and blend the colors together.

Then I stamped the sentiment with Black PowderPuff Chalking Ink that works the best on this journaling page and it won’t bleed through like other dye inks or archival ink. If you prep the page with clear gesso, other type of inks will work just okay on the page.

I stamped the snowman with Black Archival Ink Pad and colored it with Arteza Real Brush Pens and watercolor brush. Then I die cut it with the matching die.

Our Daily Bread Designs White As Snow Bible Journaling Page

Next I cut couple of the Curvy Slopes out of white cardstock for the hill border on the bottom of the page. Then I added them on the page with Scor-Tape double sided tape. I let the top bit open so I can tuck the other die cut pieces under the hills.

I then cut the trees and deer out of the solid papers form Christmas 2017 Collection Paper Pad. I added them on the page with Art Glitter Dries Clear Adhesive glue. And then I added the snowman, too on the page.

After all pieces are on the page, I added some of the fake snow paste on them with palette knife.

Our Daily Bread Designs White As Snow Bible Journaling Page

I finished the page with some of the snowflakes die cuts that I added them randomly on the page using the Art Glitter Dries Clear Adhesive glue.

I just love the true and God’s promises written on this passage. He is God, he never fails to fulfill what He has spoken. He takes care of His own people. He forgives those how turn their ways away from their wicked ways. He wash our sins away with the blood of Christ. He makes us new in Him and His image only. What a promise!

“Come now, let’s settle this,”
says the Lord.
“Though your sins are like scarlet,
I will make them as white as snow.
Though they are red like crimson,
I will make them as white as wool.
If you will only obey me,
you will have plenty to eat.
But if you turn away and refuse to listen,
you will be devoured by the sword of your enemies.
I, the Lord, have spoken!”
Isaiah 1:18, New Living Translation

STAMPlorations Typografia In Faith Blog Hop and Giveaway

Hello everyone… WELCOME to STAMPlorations Typografia In Faith Blog Hop! Today I join the STAMPlorations team sharing projects with the new stamp set collection from STAMPlorations, called Typografia In Faith.

Visit STAMPlorations Blog to read and see the full details of the whole Typografia Collection and the design team projects. And… before you leave, do not forget to give each of the designer some love about their project for chances to win giveaway prize.

For this blog hop, I created 2 projects. The first one is a journaling page insert using vellum paper that I added inside my New Living Translation – Inspired Journaling Bible.

To create the insert, first I added the vellum paper (8.5″ x 11″) in between the pages, I traced it with pencil, and then I cut it out with scissors. Or you also can measure you Bible page, and then cut out your vellum paper with paper trimmer, without tracing it first.

STAMPlorations Typografia In Faith - Romans 11:1

I stamped the Faith – Typografia in Faith stamp using Regular MISTI, StazOn Black Jet Ink, and then I sprinkled some clear embossing powder on it. I pre-heated my craft heater for at least 30 seconds or more to avoid wrinkling the vellum paper, and then heat set the embossing powder. The vellum paper wrinkled just a very little bit.

STAMPlorations Typografia In Faith - Romans 11:1

After that, I traced some flowers at the bottom of the page using Bloom Silhouettes ARTPlorations Stencil and Micron Pen 0.3, and using Micron Pen 1 to fill in each flower. These Micron Pens are india ink, so it dries permanently and bold.

STAMPlorations Typografia In Faith - Romans 11:1

I smooshed some of the the Distress Inks on the back of the vellum page to create the night background sky. On this page, I used Antique Linen, Victorian Velvet, Seedless Preserves, Faded Jeans, and Black Soot. After that, using my finger I blended them. It is way easier if you have blending tool, I do not have it 🙂 And then I used paper towel to wipe off the extra ink.

STAMPlorations Typografia In Faith - Romans 11:1

For extra texture and stars, I sprayed from water using Ranger Spray bottle, and wiped it off with paper towel right away. Water will curl the vellum paper if you let it sit too long.

And my second project is a mixed media tag using the God’s Strength – Typografia In Faith stamp.

I created the tag galaxy background using Gelatos and splatter of white acrylic paints. And then using Mini MISTI, I stamped the God’s Strength – Typografia In Faith stamp with VersaMark ink pad, and added some WOW! Jade Glitter Embossing Powder, heat set it, and then stamped again with VersaMark Ink Pad, added some mixed white-and-glitter embossing powder on it, and heat set again. The result is that looks like it has shadow. Kidda make it pop up, don’t you think? 🙂

Those are all my projects to share with you today.

Bible Journaling: Gracious Word Will Sweeten Your Soul

Hello everyone…Today I have a Bible journaling page to share with you all. I am inspired by the truth in the book of Proverbs 16:23-24.

When we fill hearts with God’s words and truth that have set us free and gaining wisdom, we will speak out gracious words that will sweeten every soul. They are like a honeycomb. That is the truth. We can bless and uplift others with your words that come out of our mouth, or otherwise.

On my page today, I am using the Bee Kind – Color by Faith Stamp Set with Gelatos, Stamper’s Big Brush Pens and Sparkle Glitter Pen. Please visit Joy Clair Blog to see the full process tutorial how I created this page.

My bible is so bulky and pretty bumpy with all the embellishments that I used on pages, so I added a piece acetate and fun foam that I cut out to use as mat and stamping mat to put under that Bible page. I also added a piece of craft mat that I cut out to fit for Bible journaling. You don’t have to do this step if you have a flat enough surface for stamping. I skip this mats when I work on my new journaling Bible.

When I was done, I cleaned all my stamps using Joy Clair Stamp Cleaner and wiped them off with baby wipes.

I hope this page will encourage our to continue bless others with sweet words and for you to continue to spend your time with the LORD through Bible journaling. You also can find more details inspirations from the Design team at:

Joy Clair: God Created Us In His Image

Hello everyone…Today I have a Bible journaling page to share with you all. The Bible verse I journal today is from Genesis 1:27

“So God created man in his own image,

in the image of God he created him;

male and female he created them.”

This is an amazing truth to know that we all were created in God’s image. When I was in school until college I had a low-selfesteem and had no confident at all. Not knowing who I was and why I was created the way it was led me to close my self to others. I felt uncomfortable being in the public.

Then in 2001, I came to know Christ and born again in Him. I found the truth. The truth set me free from all of my fears and low-selfesteem. This truth that I was created in GOD, the creator and the powerful living God. I walk in confident that God created me in his image and has perfect plans for me to live my life. This truth helps me to raise up from the ash and self-pity. This truth helps me to know all God has given to me meant for me and to make Him known and show His glory alone.

I hope this truth can set you free, too, today!

On my Bible journaling page today I am using the God’s Focus – Bible Journaling Clear Stamps, Micron Pen, Archival Ink pad, Acrylic Paints, and some die cuts. I am sharing the full post on Joy Clair Blog today. I hope you all can come and visit me there!

THANK YOU so much for stopping by and have fabulous blessed day!

He Has Risen: Vellum Insert Tutorial

Hello everyone… Easter is the celebration of our Lord Jesus has risen, and defeated death. God is glorified by the obedience of Christ. We are forgiven and redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ. This is a celebration!

“But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. See, I have told you.” So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. And behold, Jesus met them and said,”Greetings!”And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them,”Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me.”” (Matthew 28:5-10, or read online here)

When I read my Bible, I will write and do art journal on both side of the journal columns, and also sometimes, I will need extra space for another one if my reading end up on the same page. This is when I found the solution to use vellum. I am so thankful for those who came up with this idea before me 🙂 And today, I would like to share with you a simple and easy way to add the vellum insert on your journaling Bible. I use the He Has Risen – Bible Journaling Clear Stamps to create my vellum journaling page. Visit Joy Clair Blog to see the full tutorial.

I hope you all can visit me there today 🙂 Thank you so much! Have a wonderful blessed day!
