Just thought I’d share another Bible verse quick page I made using the brag book by SMJ and Dani. I also used a notebook element from their collab kit to fill in the empty space behind the text. And here’s a little Photoshop tip for you:
Adjusting Text for Notepaper in Photoshop
Before I learned this tip I used to resize my text by trial and error, I even made separate layers for each line of text sometimes so that I could line it up on the notepaper. This way is much easier and faster. After typing your text in the selected font and size, open the “Character” window (Window>Character) to make your adjustments. With your text selected, hover your mouse over the “Set the Leading” icon (circled in red below). The cursor will turn into a hand with arrows pointing outward from the index finger. Click and drag to the left or right to change the distance between the lines until they line up perfectly!

Remember when I was making those 4×6 cards with my weekly memory verses for a Bible study I was doing? I liked the idea so much that I have decided to keep making these, even though I have finished that study and moved on to a new one.
So here’s the latest:
And here’s the great idea that just came to me today: I used a 4×6 brag book page to make this memory verse card! I love the idea of designing all of the cards myself, but for those weeks when time is short, I plan to use these premade pages. They’re practical, quick and beautiful :). The page I used is from this brag book by Dani Mogstad and SMJ.
I also wrote a lot more of my thoughts about these memory verses in this post.
I forgot to mention that the new Bible study I’m doing with a group of ladies in my neighborhood is called Discerning the Voice of God, by Priscilla Shirer - it’s WONDERFUL!

Sorry, couldn’t resist the alliterative title ;).
Shabby Miss Jenn teamed up with Dani Mogstad to create this beautiful collaboration kit. I know I will get a lot of use out of this one - isn’t it wonderful??? If you hurry, you can grab the kit for 20% off AND get a free 4×6 brag book with your purchase. This is an awesome deal – I plan to make this brag book too – it is one the best I’ve seen!
This kit was PERFECT for this sweet photo of my friend and her daughter:
And here’s another faithbooking page! I made this a week or two ago, and it is in response to a new Bible study I’m doing called Discerning the Voice of God, by Priscilla Shirer (a really great study, by the way). I’m pretty much finished with the Beth Moore study that I made my first faithbooking page from, and I still plan to make a book of pages from that study too. I was just inspired by what I was learning in my current study, so I put this page together :). The study asked me to list the attributes of God described in Habakkuk 1:12-13, then write a prayer expressing my faith that God is in control of my life. I have found that making these faithbook pages has helped me to think even more carefully about my Bible studies, which is always a good thing :).
I used Shabby Poppies, by Shabby Miss Jenn to create this page :).

OK, I mentioned in a recent post that I was planning on exploring faithbooking a little more. I have read some things on different sites and I’m now filled with all kinds of great ideas! In the future I really want to look back on my life and record some of the life changing events that have been key turning points in my spiritual walk, but in the meantime I decided to just start with what I am learning right here and now. So, I wanted to show you my very first faithbook page (using this kit, by SP)!
As I mentioned before, I am doing this great Beth Moore Bible study right now. Well, as part of the study, you read a Psalm and then later you rewrite the Psalm as a prayer to God in your own words. While I was doing the study the other day it suddenly dawned on me that I could easily translate this exercise into scrapbooking pages – the “journaling” is already written out and it gives such great insight into my spiritual life right now and in the past. I blurred out my rewrite of the Psalm, because it is pretty personal, but let’s just say that my version was less of a statement and more of a request for help to be LIKE the author of that Psalm LOL!
Also, here is the last of the four index cards I made for my memory verses. I really think the process of making these cards helped me to memorize them. I think I will try that again next time I want to memorize something.
(I used this kit by SP and CRD to make the digital index card)
Oh, and did you notice the inspirational Bible verse I added to the top of the page? I think it’s perfect for faithbooking, don’t you :)?
That’s all I have on faithbooking for today, but I do have some more ideas in the works – so I’ll keep you updated!

One of my goals for 2008 is to learn more about faithbooking and to start documenting my walk with Christ. I was looking around online for more information and I found out that the Creative Memories website has a TON of great resources about it! I only had time to skim through the pages, but now I am really excited to get started. Click here to see what I’m talking about (and don’t miss all of the other links on the right side and top of the page).
Anyway, the 4×6 cards in this post are my first few faithbooking projects that I hope to incorporate into a scrapbook eventually. I am doing a great Beth Moore Bible study right now, called Stepping Up: A Journey Through the Psalms of Ascent. As part of the Bible study, we are memorizing Psalm 121. We are asked to write 2 verses of the Psalm out on index cards each week to help us memorize them. So I decided to create mine digitally and print them out so that I can add them to a faithbook page later on. These are the first three cards (the last one is next week). I’m enjoying my first little baby steps into faithbooking and can’t wait to try some more :)! I used this kit by SP and CRD to make these cards :).
