Bible Journaling with Penny Ward

April 24, 2020

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.

This month’s wonderful Bible journaling page by Penny combines the sweet innocence of our miniature transparent stamp set, 30-688 Lolly, with an encouraging sentiment from our transparent stamp set, 30-429 Gifts from Above.

And if cardmaking is more of your “jam,” Penny’s soft coloring and unique sentiment design would certainly look right at home on your next creation.
