Bible Journaling with Penny Ward

June 7, 2019

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 gorgeous page this month features our transparent stamp set, 30-565 Flower Fantasy.

Her spotlight coloring technique of coloring only one side of her stamped image is eye catching and unique.

This overall design would work well for so many different projects– tags, cards, art journals, scrapbook pages…
