Bible Study Devotion & Project Life!

Hello, Friends!  Today's post is in response to questions I am getting on Instagram and Facebook.  I'm going to share how I am doing my Bible reading, devotional, and journaling in 2015.  

Crafting with paper is my favorite past-time.  I was a demonstrator for Stampin' Up! for more than a decade but recently gave it up to be able to devote more time to Milk Allergy Mom and home school.  I would love to scrapbook a little everyday, but that's just not top priority right now. But reading my Bible IS top priority.  

So recently, as I was shopping for a Bible journal for the new year, it struck me that perhaps I could combine my desire to be crafty with being in the Word each day!  

So I came up with a new system to streamline these two passions.  It's a system that allows me to "craft" and look at pretty paper every day.  And a system that gets me excited to spend time with God each day.  And a system that motivates me to inspire and encourage others, too. Project Life Bible, Devotional, Journal tin.  :)

I have been scrapbooking with Project Life supplies for a few years now.  So I had plenty of supplies on hand.  I just had to organize them in a way that was fun for me.  Did I mention that I love organizing, too?  :)  

I found a tin lying around in the craft room, grabbed some girly Project Life cards, and put them in the tin with a journal pen.  To keep two piles separate (blank & written), I just tied the blank cards together.  I have found that those cute elastic hair bands work well, too.  

The great thing about Project Life is that the cards are double-sided with different designs.  So you always have a good selection of designs for journaling.  

I also have plastic containers that would work for good storage.  These would be so fun to gift to someone!  Purchase a large Project Life kit and several plastic cases and package them up for others!

To journal, I use these Project Life Pens.  If you aren't afraid of pens with acid, you can go for Ultra Fine Tip Sharpie Pens.  

Now, what to do with the written cards?  You can simply keep them in your container as a journal box.  Or you can put them into a book as a journal later.  Or you can intermingle the cards into a family scrapbook.  Or just tape them around the house for constant reminders and encouragement.  :)  

Faith is important to me.  I don't know what state of mind I would be in without it.  I hope you have peace and hope in your struggles, as well.  And I hope this post encourages or inspires you in some way.  

If you would like to join me on Instagram with your own faith-inspired cards, be sure to hashtag #myfaithcards so I can see! 

Have a blessed day.

I LOVE this! What a great use for all of those leftover Project Life cards - I just finished pulling some of mine into a little tin just like you did for my Bible study also...thanks for the inspiration! :)
