Delight in the Lord

Delight in the Lord Bible Journaling Page using Illustrated Faith Confetti Kit - Lydia Cost

I was so blessed this past week with being the winner of a giveaway of Illustrated Faith’s newest devotional kit, and I couldn’t be more overjoyed! It had been a while since I have gotten my hands on their kits, merely because I had so many other products that needed my attention.

This month’s kit is called Confetti, and it is oh so cute! It’s all about your re-birthday in Christ; I mean, how fun is that, right?! Shanna Noel has expertly paired the Crate Paper Hooray collection with this month’s kit!

I chose to add my journaling for this page with my typewriter on some old cookie packaging, and then I stitched it on. I love the whimsical look of the typewriter text and the messy packaging.

I finished up this simple little page by stitching on a scrap leftover of a long label to add my date. This was such a super simple page, but with only a little bit of time to work, it brought my heart so much joy. I have really missed how deeply these little devotionals dive me into the Word!

So Lovely |Adding Flair to Ephemera

Song of Songs Bible Journaling Page using Bella Blvd Secrets of the Sea - Lydia Cost

I’ve recently been eye-ing all the beautiful embroidery thread creations on Pinterest, and I’m especially obsessed with the embroidered hair!  I just couldn’t help but add a little pizazz to this gorgeous mermaid from the Bella Blvd Secrets of the Sea collection.

I knew I wanted to add some really long dark braids to the pretty little lady, but she already had a top bun.  I went about cutting off her pretty little bun to make room for some long locks!

After removing her bun, I began by stitching on the hair on the top of the head, matching the pattern that was illustrated on the ephemera.  I finished stitching at the bottom of each corner of her head to string several strands below her ears for those long brads!

I left one side open so that it appear as if she was still braiding, since her hand was in the perfect position.  Isn’t she just the cutest?!

I added her to my Bible page along with a few pieces of other ephemera, alphas, and some ciao chips.  It was a super simply page, but I wanted that lovely little mermaid to do all the talking!

Thanks so much for joining me today!  I hope you’re inspired to add a little flair to your favorite ephemera!

I thought I’d share my first project using the new Bohemian Dreams collection, and I couldn’t resist creating in my signature style within my Bible!
