Today on our blog, Cathy Caines shares her tips and techniques for creating 8.5″ x 11″ scrapbook pages.   ‘I had been waiting for this. This was the part of the road trip on my old stomping grounds in Wolfville, Nova Scotia.  We had pitas and marched down the main road to check out Jane’s thrift shop.  Before we left, I took a moment to take in the view.

Today on our blog we welcome Marjolaine Walker who has some beautiful Bible journaling pages to show you! Hello creative friends, I’m so pleased to be here today sharing my journey into bible journaling! I first took notice of people colouring in their bibles a little over a year ago. I loved the idea at the time but was not ready to commit to it just yet. I have a habit of jumping into new things and then abandoning them which ends up being a waste of money and time. To be sure that I would be committed to this new adventure, I started doodling in a bible that I already owned, slowly getting braver as I experimented on each page. After a long while I purchased a wide margin bible and dove right in. There’s a certain style of bible journaling that I absolutely love. It’s where…
