Faithbooking Update (and Tutorial)

If you have been following my faithbooking journey, you know that I have been making faithbook pages for each of the “Psalms of Ascent” (15 chapters from the book of Psalms in the Bible), because I was so inspired by a Beth Moore Bible study about them, called Stepping Up. That Bible study also inspired me to start memorizing Bible verses again, something I had sadly not been doing for several years. Anyway, I finished another Psalms faithbook page, using the lovely Bella kit, by Shabby Princess:

Also, in the meantime, I am working through another Bible study with some ladies from church. As part of that study, I have been memorizing Proverbs 31:10-31(so far I am up to about verse 25). The lady leading the Bible study has been nice enough to make index cards with the verses printed on them, to help us know which verses to memorize each week. So I thought it would be fun to make a little folder to hold all of these index cards in. I used this pretty kit by Shabby Miss Jenn, Summer Posies:

Tutorial: Index Card Folder

I used digital papers to make this project, but it would work just as well with regular scrapbook paper too. It is a great project for using up some left over pieces of paper you just can’t bear to toss out :)!

Supplies

Various pieces of coordinating patterned paper, approximately enough to cover a 6″x8″ area (or at least a 4″x6″ card front).

Two pieces 6″x8″ cardstock in colors to coordinate with your patterned paper, plus a little extra to mat circles with if desired.

Adhesive, scissors and/or punches. Optional: Decorative edged scissors, ribbon.

  1. Gather a few strips of coordinating patterned paper, or print out some digital ones, like I did (TIP: if you are printing digital paper, print out just what you need so you won’t waste paper or ink). Crop the papers into squares and circles by hand or using punches (I love the ones from Creative Memories).
  2. Fold the two large pieces of cardstock in half to create two 4″x6″ cards. Trim one of the cards to be slightly smaller than the other (I used scalloped edge scissors). Adhere the smaller card to the larger card.
  3. Decorate the outside of the folder with the squares of patterned paper. Mat some of the circles with cardstock and place them on top.
  4. If desired, add a ribbon by opening the folder and adhering the ribbon across the entire center, leaving ample ribbon on either side to tie the folder closed with.

I enjoy seeing this sweet little folder each morning when it’s time for my morning Bible study. Simple things like these always make me smile :)!

Speaking of making me smile, I just want to say a HUGE thank you to Lynn, of the Beautiful Delights blog and Karen, of Scraps of Mind for giving me The Brilliante Weblog Award. You are so sweet :)! XOXO

    Your faithbooking is great! Love the psalm. I’m going to send it on to Rebekah. The folder for verses is a good idea. I know some family members that could make good use of a present like that (hint, hint!). But not for this upcoming vacation!

    Love XO
