Scripture Display Album for 2013

I love God's Word and I know that it  helps us build Christ-like character in our lives, it encourages us when we are troubled, it helps us make wise decisions throughout our day, and much more. There are many ways that we can display God's Word in our homes. This is one of the crafts I've been making for gifts and for craft fairs that shows Scripture that is meant to be encouraging and uplifting.

Earlier in the year I posted five of the pages that I put in my Scripture Display Album that I'm making this year. Here's the cover and three more pages. The cover uses the same verse that I used last year, but it has different word art. The word art on most of these pages are from Word Art Wednesday and Papercraft Memories free word art that I saved the last couple of years. There are 12 pages inside. One can be displayed each month of the year - or whenever the encouragement of that verse is needed.

The cover says, "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Psalm 119:105"


The next one uses CTMH stamps and Laughing Lola papers, cuttlebug embossing folder, and a verse from Our Daily Bread Designs. It says "May the Lord direct your hearts into God's love and Christ's perseverance. 2 Thessalonians 3:5"


The next verse has always meant a lot to me because I consider myself to have many kinds of weaknesses and always need God's strength to take control.  "My grace is sufficient for thee, for my strength is made perfect in weakness. 2 Corinthians 12:9"


The following verse is important to me because I know that God hears our prayers and sees what we're going through. "For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. 1 Peter 3:12"



I decided to make some of them with seasonal papers or themes, like the red, white and blue above for July and the December page below.




I will share the rest of the pages in a later post so that there aren't too many photos to upload in one post.

Thank you for visiting. I hope perhaps that this gives you crafters some ideas for your own projects. May God bless you through the reading of His Word.
