The Creative Worship Bible Journaling theme for July is Unity. My challenge is to “get on the same page” and create a bookmark.
I followed along with a Jennifer Mcguire tutorial and created a corner bookmark that I used to decorate a card. After the card has done its job and given someone a reason to smile, the bookmark can be removed and inserted into your Bible. In order for me to explain how this all fits with the theme (for me) let me give you some background… I have been sending happy mail over the last few weeks and just trying to encourage people I know might need a little lift. I believe that in order to have unity, we have to encourage and love one another so if you feel like making 2 bookmarks (one for you and one to share) you will have the spirit of this challenge for sure!
For my project today, I used the new set called True Beauty The flowers are beautiful but the sentiments make me smile out loud!! I chose Be•YOU•tiful as my sentiment because it made me think of my great grandmother. I can hear her now…. “beauty is only skin deep and as long as you are as pretty on the inside as your are on the outside, you will make God smile…”
While Ephesians 2:8–9 remind us that we are saved by grace through faith and it is nothing we have done, but it is a gift from God – good works didn’t play a roll in our salvation! Ephesians 2:10, however, answers the question of what to do after we find salvation. God God calls us His workmanship. We have been “created in Christ Jesus for good works” and though good works do not give us salvation, they are definitely meant to be the result of salvation.
10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
Here is the card I made in my LIVE. This one will be mailed as happy mail tomorrow! I added a little background stamping to make less white space but still be CAS. I also added highlights with a white pencil.
Here is my second card I pulled out the melon color in my flowers on this one.
Here is how you pull the bookmark off the card to use.
Here is a close up of the bookmark on the page.
I hope you are inspired and I would love to see your bookmarks!!
Thanks for stopping by!
