DIY Page Tabs With Envelope Punch Board

Today I am sharing a tutorial how to make page tabs with WRMK Envelope Punch Board.

DIY Page Tabs with Envelope Punch Board --> http://wp.me/p1DmW0-2cE #diy #papercrafting #biblejournaling #wermemorykeepers #wrmk #envelopepunchboard #diycraftsupply

Since I do not have tab punch, I make my own page tabs using WRMK Envelope Punch Board. It is very easy to make and you can do in any sizes you need for your Bible journaling, or planner, or use them on any projects you want.

Here are the steps:

  • Cut paper or cardstock in sizes you desire. I cut mine on the video in 2 inches x 1.5 inches.
  • Score and fold.
  • Place it under the punch.
  • Punch one side.
  • Flip over and punch again.

Hopefully the picture video is clear enough to show you how to make them. Fell free to ask me questions in the comment if you have 😊

Have a blessed Friday and Happy Crafting!

Gratitude Bible Journaling Week 1

There are so many things we can thank God for. Big things, small things, everything that are good come from Him.

During the month of November, I join the Illustrated Faith Community to document our thanksgiving through journaling. They have the Gratitude Documented Journal sold at their Etsy store. But I did not get it on time to start this, I do my journaling on my ESV Journaling Bible 🙂

And here’s the list of promts provided for all of us to join their #GratitudeDocumented:

Illustrated Faith Community in #GratitudeDocumented http://www.illustratedfaith.com

I started on the first day and I did the first 2 pages (Day 1 and Day 2), but got stopped because of our kids got sick. Here are the other 4 of my Gratitude Bible Journaling pages from last Week 1.

Gratitude Documented Bible Journaling Day 3: Family. Joshua 24:14-15 #blessedfamily #biblejournaling #illustratedfaith #gratitudedocumented #latinacrafterstamps #beablessing #ctmh #fabercastell #gelatos #pittsartistpen #creatingjoyfully #LampAndLight

Day 3: Family.

Joshua 24:14-15

Never stop thanking God for my family. This is my prayer that we will serve Him as a family as long as we live. We will walk by faith, not by sight. We trust in Him and we entrust our lives in Him. For He is our God, Savior and Lord.

Gratitute Documented Bible Journaling Day 4: Passion. John 1:1-5 #illustratedfaith #gratitudedocumented #biblejournaling #latinacrafter #neatandtangled #beablessing #fabercastell #gelatos #pittsartistpens #stampersbigbrushpens #primamarketing #creatingjoyfully #lampandlight

Day 4: Passion

John 1:1-15

The passion God has put in my heart is that to see more SEA* people to have God’s word translated in languages that the people speak and they will be able to read His word in their heart languages, so that they will know who God is, that He is the Word, that He is the Creator, that He is the Life, and that He is the Light that shine in the darkness. And they will come to trust in Him, saved and serve Him. This is His passion.

Gratitute Documented Bible Journaling Day 5: Peace. Isaiah 9:1-7 #gratitudedocumented #illustratedfaith #biblejournaling #peace #PrinceofPeace #neatandtangled #pittsartistpens #gelatos #FaberCastell #creatingjoyfully #LampAndLight

Day 5: Peace.

Isaiah 9:1-7

Jesus Christ is the Prince of Peace, who was born, given and sent to us to govern over all rulers of the earth and heavens.

He rules with justice and righteousness. He is with us and in us.

He gives us the peace that the world cannot give us.

Gratitude Documented Bible Journaling Day 6: Forgiveness. 1 John 1:7-10 #illustratedfaith #gratitudedocumented #biblejournaling #latinacrafterstamps #beablessing #ctmh #FaberCastell #stampersbigbrushpens #pittsartistpens #eksuccesscalligraphypens #creatingjoyfully #LampAndLight

Day 6: Forgiveness.

1 John 1:7-10

We need Jesus to cleanse us with His blood.
Confession of our sins leads us to forgiveness, and God who is faithful will forgive us and heal us.

When I did the journaling, God encouraged my heart with His words. He strengthen my hope and faith in Him. So thankful for God’s word that speak into our lives!

Thank You for visiting and Have a wonderful blessed week!

Gratitude Bible Journaling Day 2: Salvation

Salvation. All human race need saving. Saving from the slavery of this world. And only one can save us and set us free. He is Jesus, by the grace of God.

For the grace of God has appeared bringing salvation for all people (Titus 2:11)

It is only by the grace of God we are saved, not because we are good enough or because of the good deeds we did to others.

It is only by His grace, God brings the salvation for all people, for every ethne, for every tongue and for every land. Our salvation only comes from God through Christ Jesus. No one else can do this. He died on the cross for you and me. He died to redeem us from the slavery. He died to set us free from the bondage of the evil. He died to save us from the eternal death.

Untitled

It is because He loves the world, He sent Jesus, his only Son. Not to judge the world, but to save the world. The Salvation from God is for you today.

So thankful for the salvation through Jesus Christ.

Gratitude Bible Journaling Day 1: Jesus

Jesus. He is the only way to the Father. He is the Truth sent by the Father. He is the life, all things created in Him. Who ever trust in Him, will see and find the Father. Knowing Jesus personally is to know God the Father personally.

This is the truth. John recorded what Jesus said who He was and who He is in John 14:1-14. He is the Son of God, sent by God, the Father, to the earth for these purposes: to show who God is, to show us the way, to teach us the truth, and to give us the life.

He is the only one. Those who trusts in Him will find God, will find the way to the Father, will be set by the truth and will have the eternal life.

Only through Jesus.

I created the journaling tag using Canson 140 lbs. watercolor paper, covered it with Gold metallic gelato from Faber-Castell Mix and Match Gelatos Gift Set 28 per Package*, then using baby wipe I rub the gelato in circular motion so the whole surface of the watercolor paper covered well and even. I speeded up the drying using my Craft Heater (CTMH). Once the surface totaly dry, I stamped the Hopscotch Alpha (CTMH) and from Be A Blessing – The Way stamp set (Latina Crafter) using my new MISTI tool and Faber-Castell Stamper’s Big Brush Pens*. I stamped twice to make sure they stamped well.

I filled the JESUS with the same brush pen to make it solid image and traced the outline using Sakura White Gelly Roll pen*. The same thing I did to the arrow.

Untitled

I used Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pen Set* to write the journal at the front and back of the tag. Using washi tape I add the journaling tag on the Bible page.

The Gratitude Documented hosted by Illustrated Faith community. You can find lots of inspirations on social media, like Instagram, by using these hasthags: #gratitudedocumented and #wowGod.

THANK YOU for visiting today!

Bible Journaling: HelloMornings Week 2

Bible Journaling HelloMornings Week 2 | Relentless Study | #hellomornings #RelentlessStudy #biblejournaling #journalingbible #illustratedfaith #bibleartjournaling

We made it through HelloMornings Study Week 2 study on the book of Judges. This week I learned who God is through how He revealed Himself to the people of Israel through the people He sent to save them.

I studied God’s word together with a group of amazing ladies on one of HelloMornings Facebook groups. I join HelloMorning study since 3,5 years ago. And God has been teaching me to trust in Him completely in my walking with Him and He stretching my faith through circumstances we got through as family and personal life.

I learned this week is that God wants us to know Him personally and not only know about Him. He reveals Himself clearly through all His creations around us.

And He promises us to walk with us personally and be with us in any circumstances we go through, that He will give us the rest we need and everything will be fine for us. For He himself walk with us. Yes, there are circumstances we had gone through, or maybe we are now in the situation where we cannot see His presence or even not receiving the answeres to our prayers, know this well that God himself promise to us that He is with us. He is God.

Here are the my Bible journaling pages of the Word of God I studied this week 2:

Romans 1:22-24

image

Proverbs 3:11-12

image

Exodus 33:14

image

Judges 3:15a

image

Psalms 91:9-10

image

I am so thankful for what He taught me this week, thankful for the ways how He revealed Himself to me, and thankful the promises He gave to me. And I am looking forward to new things God will teach me and new revelations of who He is in the next week.

I pray God reveals Himself to you also in ways that you can understand and gain knowledge of who He is so that you also can worship Him with all your heart, mind and strength.

God bless you abundantly!

Illustrated Faith: God Speaks To Us Because Of Love

We got back from our 2 months trip to Indonesia last week. Just in case you were wondering why I did not blog regularly in the last 2 months 🙂

Originally plan was only to attend my youngest sister’s wedding and spend time with my parents and my family so that our daughters get to know them in real life not only through Skype callings.

But God has different plan for us this time.

For 8 weeks we spent in Indonesia, we learned God’s desire to see every tribe and every people to stand before His throne worshipping Him in every language they speak.

We took our daughters who are 6 years old and 2 years old on this trip. This was a tough trip for them but we prayed and we asked lots of people to pray for us and the girls, asking God for what He wanted to teach and show us this time.

He spoke us through the situations, people we met, and even places we visited. He opened our eyes to see the needs of His word in their lives, He showed us why they need Him, and He put the desire even more in our hearts as family to serve Him there.

As Jesus gave His command to His disciples, this command is also for us, His church, in Matthew 28:18-20. This commands is also known as the Great Commandment.

Supplies: My Mind’s Eye Decorative Tapes, Freckled Fawn wood veneers, Elle’s Studio tags, Stickos Alpa stickers, Target tags & alpha stickers, Faber Castell PITT Artist Pens and Big Brush, Martha Stewart Glue Pen

Maybe you think this command is only for those certain people who called themselves “missionary.” But this command is given to each of Jesus’ follower, to each of us, to you and me. We all are called to go and make disciple, to teach them the truth, to baptize them and to teach them to obey God’s commands. That means, you and I are missionaries, the messengers of God’s message to this world where we live.

When we visited a city, we found out churches in that city are scared to step out of their comfort zone to reach out to the local people who are 100% non-believers and this people group is one of the Unengaged, Unreached People Group.

The question is: Why they are scared?

My heart is broken. I keep praying for this people group and for those believers who live among this unreached people group that they will have courage to go out and reach out to them, to go sharing the Good News to them.

Supplies: Abigail’s Handdrawing heart, Faber Castell PITT Artist Pen, My Mind’s Eye Decorative Tape, SU Journaling Card

God’s love endures forever. He is patient enough waiting for each of us to repent and come to Him. His love never ends. His love never fails. His love for the people in Indonesia is the same love he has for us who live in the States or anywhere else.

There are at least 400 languages groups (people groups) who have been waiting to know God’s unfailing love to them, waiting to hear He speaks to them in the languages that they understand best in their mind and hearts.

For this reason we went. For this reason we wanna go back to serve there alongside with national translators and national churches to accelerate the proces of translations of God’s word into those 400++ languages!

Supplies: Field Notes pocket notebook, Pilot Gel pens.

This is the truth. The center of the Bible is the Gospel. And the center of theGospel is Jesus Christ. That concludes that the center of the whole Bible is Jesus Christ.

We attended a church with our friend, the preacher said something that reminds us that wherever we are sent to go, we share the Good News, we share Jesus. When we preach, we preach Jesus.

Supplies: My Mind’s Eye Decorative Tapes, Freckled Fawn wood veneers, Elle’s Studio tags, Stickos Alpa stickers, Target tags & alpha stickers, Faber Castell PITT Artist Pens and Big Brush, American Crafts Glitter Marker, Martha Stewart Glue Pen

Few times I was asked why we wanna take our family to go and live in Indonesia, where we could get everything and living comfortably in States. The only answer to that question is because we love Him. To love Him is to obey Him and His commandments. Our prayer is to love Him with all our hearts, souls, minds & all of our strength.

Serving Him is an act of love. Because without love it is impossible for us to serve full heart. For only God who gives you and I the power and desire to serve Him (Phillippians 2:13).

It is only one reason. That is because God is so loved the world. He sent Jesus not to judge and condemn. He sent Jesus, His only Son to save and redeem us back to be His.

He calls and sends you and I to go to our “Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and The End of The Earth” – to our families, neighbors, friends, and those who we do not know – is to share who He is and why He loves them that much.

Would you go to where God send you?
