Bible Journalling by Suse Fish | @FelicityJane

One of my great joys in life is getting creative in the pages of my Bible. It brings together two of my biggest passions: scrapbooking and my faith. In fact, I love Bible Journalling so much that I run a weekly group for the ladies at my church: scrap, coffee and chat: it's heavenly!

Our Felicity Jane kits are so perfect for making faith related work as they have such a positive and uplifting vibe. And of course, it makes me very happy to see my favourite book gradually become the prettiest thing on my shelf!

When new ladies join my group, I only give them one piece of practical scrapbooking advice, which may sound obvious, but it really helps beginners know where to start: "Think about how you'd decorate a room: you wouldn't put the cushions in before you've painted the walls."

I suggest people start with paint or bigger pieces of paper, then build up with the smaller items.

Once the background pieces are in, I like to add tags, cut-aparts, journalling cards, packaging from our kit, branding strips and washi.

Next come the smaller details: stamping and puffy stickers, splatters and journalling. I love to make tabs and bookmarks from the pretty papers to make my Bible a really appealing thing to pick up and leaf through.

I love that I'm turning my Bible into something that really reflects who God made me to be. And I have a hunch that He enjoys seeing me get creative in it too: after all, creativity is kind of His thing, right?

So go for it: snip out those beautiful cut-aparts and fussy-cut those trademark Felicity Jane florals: you're in for one very happy time of reflection!

I am always inspired by your creativity. I was so bummed when I went to your blog site just now to see if you had updated and it said it had been removed. I was so eager to follow along with your new project. I know you’ve struggled on and off again with the attention posting brings you and I think it demonstrates your humility that it bothers you so much (if this is the issue). I guess I just want to say that you are inspiring people with your efforts and I think that brings God glory. Just my two cents. I really, really love reading your thoughts and insights and of course seeing the outflow of your heart through what you create. I hope you’ll consider continuing your blog. (If it’s not that and it’s just become too time consuming, I totally get that and you can simply ignore my comments altogether.) I couldn’t find any other place to send you a message other than here. :) If I must, I’ll just be satisfied following you here. :)
