Hey there friends! How is this Christmas season treating you? I hope you are enjoying days filled with smiles, and hot cocoa!
Today I wanted to share how I am keeping my bible journaling simple this Christmas season. For me it is important to keep up the bible journaling through the busy times (especially during the busy times!!! #givemejesus!! )
First off, I keep all my Christmas supplies close and at reach during the month of December, let's face it that is what I am going to be reaching for and I want to have it all ready to go! I also keep my devotional from the Tis The Season kit right there, ready for reach day! What I love about this devotional is that is keeps it very simple, approachable but SO very meaningful! Along with the kit I also pull out the CHRISTmas clear cuts and some watercolors!
The clear cuts are one of my FAVORITE tools and the little cut out pieces are something I reach for all the time! I love how they all the text to come through while still leaving a FUN pop of design on the page! I decide to cut out that adorable little tree to use with today's prompt.
Once I adhere down the clear cut, I simple use the prompt stamp from the tis the season kit, as well as add some journaling lines to quickly jot down what is on my heart. I also love adding the little Christmas stamp at the bottom of my journaling to pull all the other entries together, using 1/2 of the date stamp to keep it simple!
I also love using the Illustrated Faith watercolors to highlight the text I am reflecting on! Super quick, fun effect! Once I am done with all the important bits I then add a little jazz, the tabs at the top a little washi, etc!!! Just have fun with it! All in all this entry took me around 12 mins. Seriously you have 12 mins friends!!!
Overall keep it simple friends, that is the key to bible journaling when you are feeling a time crunch!!!
I wanted to share my top 5 tips for keeping it simple:
1. Don't over think it, a stamp, a sticker and some journaling you are good to go!
2. Set up some guidelines for yourself, for example using the LOVE stamp on all my LOVE entries has helped me to get started each time!
3. Keep your supplies out and ready to go!
4. Set a timer for 15 mins. you will be amazed at how much you can get done!
5. HAVE FUN!!!! This is a BEAUTIFUL way to document your faith, enjoy every step of the process!
