Fun Friday: Bible Journaling with Penny Ward

October 19, 2018

Once a month, Penny Ward joins us with her inspiring and gorgeous Bible journaling pages featuring our products! You can read more about Penny and her Bible journaling tips HERE. We love her approach to Bible journaling: “I journal in a Bible to show my love of God and particular scripture most of the time. God gave me the crafty gene and I am showing him what He gave me. I am sure He loves it in His book no less. I also have a second Bible for reading.” So whether you are new to Bible journaling or a card-maker looking for stamping ideas and techniques, we welcome both you and Penny as we celebrate another EXTRA fun Friday with our fabulous friend.

Penny’s Bible journaling this month is beautiful and so personal, too. We love how she’s added her handprint to this page.

To embellish the handprint, she’s used a portion of our cling stamp, 40-648 Poinsettia Spiral.

And her beautiful sentiment on this page is from our transparent stamp set, 30-438 Peace & Love.

TGIF! Don’t miss this…
