Project Life and Faith: beginnings

I've been wanting to share a few different ways that I incorporate my faith into my Project Life. I am adopting a largely monthly approach, and while I won't be sharing all my layouts (I prefer to keep them private), I do want to share some aspects, tips and tricks that I'm picking up along the way. The idea of PL+Faith has been going round my head for a while now. With other life stuff going on, my blog constantly seems to be neglected, but I'm at least going to give this a shot! :-)

For January's spread, I included a small insert between two regular Becky Higgins "design A" page protectors. These are inserts I made myself by taking apart a 4x6 brag book that I picked up very cheaply. I hid the part that I cut with some washi tape. Sometimes I just need a small pocket to add a little something, and this seemed like a good way to do it. The subject matter for this is a piece of music I learned in choir about the New Year, with the lyrics on one side and my thoughts on the other. I made the front part digitally in PSE, and hand-wrote the journaling on a piece of patterned paper from My Mind's Eye.

For February's spread I took a screenshot of the badge I earned from the YouVersion Bible reading app, then journaled about why I love the app so much.

I look forward to sharing more ideas in the coming months!

Home is where the heart is

My parents-in-law have been working in different cities for the past few years, and missing each other terribly. Hubby and I had a long distance relationship before we were married, living on opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean, so we understand their pain!

As of this weekend, they're once again going to be working in the same city and living under the same roof. We're so happy for them and so I made this card in celebration of the occasion.

The small letter stickers are Recollections, and the rest are from Making Memories as is the heart brad. The paper is from an old stack from Me and My Big Ideas.

This card makes me happy because I know it brings back together two people who are still in love after over 45 years of marriage. :-)
