Bible Verse Memory Album- Prov 17:17 A Friend Loves at All Times
I am working on organizing my craft storage area and decided to create a project using some of my retired “stash” :-)
This album was created for the Word Art Wednesday Challenge#148- Anything Goes along with the Splitcoaststampers Divine Design Bible Verse #BVC14 Challenge.
I am a little late getting started for the Divine Design Bible Verse Challenge (it started in January and the goal is to create one card, scrapbook page, project a month with a verse that you memorize so at the end of the year, you have memorized at least twelve verses).
This album has six hearts (twelve “pages”) and was perfect for the entire year!
I love the idea of this monthly challenge so I plan on creating additional cards/projects for the rest of the year.
I will post each page as a separate post so I can link the Splitcoaststampers gallery to the specific post- here is the first page of the album as well as the overall picture of the project.
The verses used are free digital images from Word Art Wednesday (downloaded into My Digital Studio (MDS) and printed onto Very Vanilla cardstock).
The basic steps are as follows:
Using retired Beau Château Designer Series Paper (DSP), cover the chipboard with Tombow Mono Liquid Glue and adhere the DSP.
Using MDS, position the verses onto the page to allow the best use of space to allow cutting the images out with Framelits™, punches or as banners.
“Antique” the DSP using Ranger™ Tim Holtz® Distress Stain (Tea Dye and Vintage Photo) and add 3/8” Venetian Crochet Trim along with 5/8” Early Espresso Satin Ribbon (retired) or Early Espresso cardstock.
Create the rolled flowers from cardstock and DSP (I used Pink Pirouette and Hello Honey cardstock as well as Baja Breeze retired DSP) using punches- 2 ⅜”, 1 ¾” and 1 ¼” Scallop Circle Punches. Spiral cut by hand a wavy line from the outside of the scallop toward the center and roll up to create the rose (hereis a basic tutorial from Splitcoaststampers).
“Antique” the flowers using Ranger™ Tim Holtz® Distress Stain (Tea Dye and Vintage Photo) and punch out the leaves using the Bird Builder Punch from Early Espresso cardstock.
Front Page/Page One:
“A friend loves at all times” Proverbs 17:17
In addition to the elements noted above, add a piece of White Tea Lace Paper Doily (“antiqued” with Ranger™ Tim Holtz® Tea Dye and Vintage Photo Distress Stain) along with Pearls.
Darken the words of Memories with Watercolor Pencils and cut the verse out with the Big Shot™ using the Project Life® Cards and Labels Framelits™.
