100 Days of Bible Promises | Process Video Day 41


What’s that you say? A new process video?! That’s right, friend- I’ve got a new process video up on my channel! I’m sharing my day 41 entry from the 100 Days of Bible Promises Devotional Journal by Shanna Noel.


As I mention in the video, this project has been a great stash buster for me. I’m able to use up a lot of things I have left over from previous projects and art supplies I already own 🙂 I also share how I approach an entry each day- first reading the devotional, then noticing the color scheme for the day and so on.

For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. – Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)

When I read today’s verse, Ephesians 2:10, I remembered working through the This Is Love devotional kit from February with that same verse. And bonus! The colors of the kit went so well with today’s page in the book! So basically, a no brainer 🙂


I used the stamps from the kit to create a hexagon pattern with pigment ink pads and then used Neocolors to create some interest with contrasting colors. (I used colors Moss Green, Salmon and Jade Green)


I also used some 100 Days Print & Pray Shop products like the Art Elements and Vol. 2 Toolbox set.

I’m so tickled to get started making more videos, I have truly missed it and connecting with so many of you! You can watch it here 🙂 See you next time!

100 Days of Bible Promises Roundup | Days 29-36

Whew! I feel like I have been on a 100 Days whirlwind! I’ve feverishly been trying to get caught up with all my pages posted here on the blog, like 21 in the last two days! So let’s get started, yea?


Day 29- Be Strong!

I love this little lion. It reminds me of my Nani who loved lions. And when Shawna Clingerman released this Print & Pray Shop set I knew I wanted to use it but, didn’t find an opportunity. Until now.

I journaled after I photographed the page so it does look a little bare, but I embraced the pink and orange theme! I layered some ampersand washi tape from Studio Calico, with the black cross washi from Illustrated Faith and pink and orange wordfetti. I also used the tiny colorful alphas along with one of the 100 Days toolbox words to build my title.


Day 30- Confess and be Healed.

Again with the pink and orange! Today I remembered to use some of the older Illustrated Faith clear cuts pads I have. If you purchased these guys in one of the DaySpring sales and aren’t quite sure how to use them, this is a great place to start! I attach them to my page with a small stapler but you could easily use a roller adhesive or glue stick.

Again I layered wordfetti and washi tape to top off the entry.


Day 31- God’s Plan for You.

Although this is such a reassuring promise for me personally, my page looks kinda…well, blue. But I know His plans for me (and you!) are good and that’s nothing to be sad about 😉

I used the Print & Pray set 100 Days blue collage set along with some Gratitude Documented alpha stickers and a journaling pen– super easy!


Day 32- Living God’s Way in this World

This is another one of my favorites! I think that has everything to do with this older digital set from Brave Little Taylor called Wild About Jesus. And the tone on tone pinks. (I hand cut the heart from a piece of patterned paper). And Katy’s brushed words sticker book.


Day 33- Do Not Be Silent

I read today’s devotional and had thoughts of this microphone from Elaine Davis’ digital set Applause Journal Kit. I paired it with a stamp from the Only One You devotional kit, some Dina Wakley acrylic paint in Peacock and experimented with Liquitex acrylic ink in Quinacridone Magenta. When will I learn that I don’t like pink or red splatters? It just looks violent!


Day 34- Christ Died for You. This was an excellent devotional and I love the Thomas Watson quote Shanna included for the day. Seriously, this should be framed in my living room.

“It is an unseemly sight to see God humbling Himself and man exalting himself; to see a humble Savior and a proud sinner.”

I kept it super simple because I wanted to really focus on the devo and journaling for the day. I used a mix of two Print & Pray sets- Brave Little Taylor’s Red Letter Lent elements and Elaine Davis’ Easter Collage Papers.


Day 35- Christ in You. In light of yesterday’s devotional, this was a really sweet follow up. We are no longer living on our own- Christ is in us!

I was pleasantly surprised with how this entry turned out. Mixed media has been challenging for me in this journal. I did my best to match the colors on the page to the acrylic paint I had on hand and applied it simply with a baby wipe.

I thumbed through the loose paper pieces in my bin and pulled out anything orange or pink- mostly pieces from the You Are Loved collection. I finished it off with enamel hearts and art marks with Neocolors (in Saffron and Purple). Finally, I wanted to brighten up the paint on the page so I mimicked the orange die cut piece and took a white big brush pen to create some dashes over the dried paint. Such a fun page to create!


Day 36- Wait on His Timing. Easier said than done for sure. Living in an instant gratification culture certainly does not help this struggle- I guess that’s another reason to be in the world, but not just like!

I thought of patience immediately (a fruit of the Spirit!) and decided to use pieces from the Fruit of the Spirit collection (the paper pieces and the stamp set). I also added some Doodlebug alpha stickers and enamel hexagons. How have I not been using those hexies until just now?! Mind boggling for sure!

And that’s it! Tell me, if you’re journaling through this devotional what day are you on?I’ll be back with another roundup this Friday (most likely!) and will *almost* be caught up with sharing- fingers crossed!

I hope you guys have a great rest of your week!

100 Days of Bible Promises Round Up | Days 22-28

Well hello there! Thanks for stopping by! Today I’m sharing entries 22 through 28 my my 100 Days of Bible Promises Devotional Journal by Shanna Noel 🙂 Still catching up, but we’re getting there right?!


Day 22- Christ Doesn’t Change. I love this Truth!!

Just like in my last post I talked about using supplies that are already out on my desk. So since I used pieces from the older devotional kit Free to Flourish on my day 21 entry, those pieces are still handy and make an appearance on day 22! I paired the kit stickers with some green homespun alphas, the newer tiny colorful alpha stickers, enamel hearts, wordfetti and finished it off with some art marks using Faber Castell brush pens. I used the colors Pink Madder Lake and Phthalo Green– to see all the brush pens I pulled for this journal check out this post.


Day 23- Who Will You Serve? A great question to spend some time with. This world is always clamoring for our heart and it’s good to have regular heart checks. 🙂

I used pieces from the Fruit of the Spirit collection from Illustrated Faith- the new larger tip-ins, paper pieces (those birds!) and some card stock stickers from the 6×12 sticker sheet. Easy peasy! I later went back and included my journaling on the tip-in.


Day 24- Put on the Armor of God. I’ve worked through the Armor of God study by Priscilla Shirer two times (it’s that good) and included a couple quotes from the study. She reminds us that in Ephesians 6 Paul says to put on the full armor of God, not just the helmet one day and the breastplate the next. We can only do battle with the enemy when we’re fully armed and fighting in prayer!

As you can see this page is pretty simple. I used the Gratitude Documented sticker sheet for those large teal alphas along with the typed words from the 100 Day Toolbox in the Print & Pray Shop. I filled in the empty space with some wordfetti and art marks using a big brush pen in Light Flesh.


Day 25- God’s Love Is Always There

Today I knew I had to use Brave Little Taylor’s Print & Pray set Crazy Loved that came out in February. In the nick of time I remembered to save space for journaling because I kept sticking down ALL THE THINGS. I finished it off with a few enamel hearts and called it a day.


Day 26- Finding Strength in Trust. I mentioned it in my last roundup post, but “trust” is the theme that is jumping out at me as I journal through this book. Maybe my heart is being prepared for something?

For this entry I grabbed Emily Karwoski’s Print & Pray set Wise One. I had been wanting to use it and even though today’s devotional talks about eagles I went with an owl. Remember- I am the boss of my book and you are the boss of yours. Plus, they’re both birds so I felt like it wasn’t a huge leap. 😉

After journaling I filled in some blank space with the Illustrated Faith highlighter washi a la Shanna Noel.


Day 27- Live with Endurance. Ok, perhaps one of my favorite entries. Maybe it’s all the color, maybe it was the opportunity to go through some notes from Christine Caine’s IF: Gathering talk about endurance- either way I really like this entry.

I remember creating this on my couch with my toddler playing nearby. I had just printed the 100 Days Speech Bubbles from Elaine Davis and from there decided to use a bunch of Elaine-designed things 🙂 including the Delight in His Day washi tape, the 100 Days Washi Set and her latest Print & Pray release Pin It Up.


Day 28- God’s Goodness in All Things

How could I not use Shawna Clingerman’s new Print & Pray set Good God?! I printed (most of) her release on clear sticker paper and kept it very simple for today’s entry.

And that’s it for this roundup! I’ll be back next week with additional pages. Let me know if you have any questions- I’m always happy to answer them!

100 Days of Bible Promises Round Up | Days 15-21

Hello there! Today I’ve got another round up of my entries in the 100 Days of Bible Promises Devotional Journal by Shanna Noel! I’m way behind on sharing so I’ll keep this short and sweet- showing you what I’ve used for each day’s entry 🙂 Ready?!


Day 15- Taking Thoughts Captive. As an introspective and analytical person this one is always a timely reminder for me! I used a quote from Lysa TerKeurst’s bible study Finding I AM, “as a woman thinks, so she acts”.  Some of my entries are photographed prior to journaling, but for this entry I kept it blank. I had plenty of time placing those alpha stickers to let the Scripture sink in 😉

For supplies I used a mix of the Tiny Colorful Alphas from Illustrated Faith and some Studio Calico color theory alpha stickers, the 12×12 fundamental sticker sheet from the You Are Loved collection, Distress Inks in Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron, a Tim Holtz stencil, Ranger ink blending tool and a Faber Castell brush pen in Phthalo Green. Then I topped it all off with some Illustrated Faith enamel hearts.


Day 16- God’s Power in You. I saw Jill Drangsholt use this cute little Print & Pray robot set from Elaine Davis, the Wonderfully Wired Journal Kit, and knew I wanted to use them as well. I used a few more enamel hearts, another stencil with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink, an ink blending tool, the Tiny Colorful alphas as well as those larger alphas from Studio Calico.

Do you see a theme? I tend to use what’s already on my desk for each entry instead of trying to reinvent the wheel every day. It works well because, from one page to the next, the colors are pretty similar. This make it possible to use the same supplies over and over!


Day 17- He supplies all your needs. Amen!

This was the second day I used the 100 Days Toolbox Vol. 1 printables from the Print & Pray Shop. If you’re into pulling one word out of each day, it’s a great set to get with the theme of each day printed in this cool typewriter font.

I used the collage papers that come as a free download when you purchase the book here along with a Heidi Swapp triangle stencil and Faber Castell brush pen in Dark Naples Ochre. I topped it off with some puffy star stickers from Pinkfresh Studio and the washi tape from the Illustrated Faith devotional kit, Only One You.


Day 18- Worry…or peace? This was my first attempt with watercolor in the book. I did not prep my page, but did try to use only a little water- it warped but was otherwise a success. I used a few Neocolor II water soluble crayons in Golden Ochre, Salmon, Purple and Veronese Green.

I also flipped through my stash of stamps and pulled out the set from the Doodles by Faith devotional kit designed by Elaine Davis– so fun, right?! I layered some It Is Well washi tape (just the polka dot portion) and used the tiny colorful alphas to help build my title, again using the 100 Days Toolbox printable from the Print & Pray Shop.


Day 19- Trust in the Lord. (This is the theme I’ve been noticing as I work through this devotional book- God is good and I can trust Him in ALL things.)

Art wise- this is where it starts to go downhill. I was still on a mixed media kick and went to town with the Golden Ochre Neocolor crayon. I didn’t love how that tuned out and covered it with layer after layer of acrylic paint. I mostly used white but also some Robin’s Egg Blue and Jade paint (from Target). I stamped, washi-ed, and painted my heart out trying to revive this guy.

While it’s certainly not my favorite looking, I did enjoy the time I spent soaking in His reliability ❤


Day 20- God’s Word is alive.

I was a bit gun shy having had a major mixed media meltdown the day before so I kept it simple with some older kit elements (from the Word Nerd devo kit) and bits from the 100 Days Art Elements in the Print & Pray Shop.

Again, I don’t love this entry but I think it’s because of that same muted color scheme as the day before. I have to remember that I’m the boss of this book and can use whichever colors I like- even if they’re not found in the original artwork. And remember- YOU are the boss of your book too! 😉


Day 21- Are you content? Today I realized my contentment and lack of grumbling is not possible by my power alone. That is certainly not my default! But when Paul penned this passage while bound in chains in jail he wasn’t drawing from his own strength, but God’s. And yes, my participation is required, but contentment will not come by my will alone. ❤

I loved Shanna’s artwork on this page. So much that I didn’t want to include much other than than my journaling. I did end up using this adorable bike from the Bright & Brave clear cuts pad, the Illustrated Faith highlighter washi a la Shanna and the stamp set from the older devotional kit Free to Flourish.

And that’ll do it for this round. I’ll be back soon to get us caught up on the rest of my entries! See you then!

100 Days of Bible Promises Round-Up | Days 8-14

Hey, friend and Happy Monday! Today I’m sharing days 8 through 14 of my 100 Days of Bible Promises journaling entries. Care to see what I’ve been creating?


Day 8: praise at all times. This day’s devotional was appropriately timed as last week was one of my worst in a while- a three-day migraine, head colds, the passing of an old friend and tornadoes. Yikes! But I was thankful for the reminder that God is still good even in the not so good times and He will always be worth praising- at all times.

For this entry I looked to some older kit components (I finally used that written on my heart die cut) and washi. I printed Shanna Noel’s 100 Days Toolbox printables from the Print & Pray Shop, grabbed some Homespun alpha stickers and my Faber Castell PITT pens in Dark Naples Ochre and Pink Madder Lake.


Day 9: New beginnings! I hadn’t yet put away my All Things New devotional kit so I was sure to use the stamp set to remind myself that He makes all things new! I also used some of Shanna’s Because He Lives printables because I couldn’t not include those butterflies!


Day 10: New mercies every day! I have this oh so fun habit of reliving foot in mouth moments from the day before quite frequently. And since I had just been to a memorial service the day before I had plenty of conversations to recall. Again, another perfectly timed 100 Days devotional. The phrase “yesterday and its regrets are over” practically jumped off the page at me.

Oh goodness, what didn’t I use on this page?! A lot of the collage papers (included with the purchase of the 100 Days book), black homespun alphas, Print & Pray Shop alpha printed on clear sticker paper, wordfetti and lots of enamel hearts to remind me that beating myself up over something I did (or didn’t) say is not the best use of my time 🙂


Day 11: Freedom in confession. What a beautifully written devotional for today!

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. – 1 John 1:9

I kept this day simple because- rough week! I used the Homespun alpha stamps, the new tiny colorful alpha sticker book, wordfetti and looooots of enamel hearts!


Day 12: wisdom for those who ask. Again, another simple entry using Elaine Davis’ Print & Pray Shop set Adjust Your View along with some fun puffy heart stickers from Pinkfresh Studio!


Day 13: Courage over fear!

The first day I added paint! I looked to the colors included in the book for my jumping off point and tried to stick just to those three. I created a similar entry in 2 Timothy 1:7 last month and decided to pull out some of the same elements I used there to create a “sister” entry in my book. Nerd alert!

I can’t get over the cuteness of these girls that Brianna Showalter illustrated for her Print & Pray Shop set Made Brave! I added some of those elements, wordfetti, black paint splatters, grid patterned washi and a Neocolor II crayon in Salmon.


Day 14: Spirit lead me. A great way to kick off this week- Spirit lead me in Your way!

More paint today, including those Handmade Modern paints we all love (in Seaweed and Bright Teal) along with a Dina Wakley acrylic paint in Marine. I used some stickers from the Fruit of the Spirit sticker sheet, bits of Brave Little Taylor’s adorable fruit illustrations and a new Brushed Words sticker from this beautiful sticker book.

I topped all of that off with lots of enamel hearts and more Salmon Neocolor II.

And that’s it for the edition! Have you been enjoying the 100 Days of Bible Promises devotional journal? I love scrolling through everyone’s posts and hearing their heart behind each entry- it’s been so fun to work through it together as a community!

I hope you have a great week and I’ll see you Wednesday with a new post and process video-yay!
