Fear Not Bible Journaling Page

Isaiah 40:10 reminds us that our God is with us and helping us. We find renewed strength and courage when we listen to His Word. On this page in my Bible journal, I used a baby wipe to spread soft (acrylic paint) colors across the page. This is a quick and easy way to add lovely color to your background. Watch my process video for instructions on how to create this look.
After my background dried, I boldly lettered "fear not" with black pen (my LePlume II dual-tipped marker worked great here) and added additional stamped details.
You can see in the background that I also added a few pen marks - black dots and a light pink crosses.

Teacher Gifts

Whether it's for Teacher Appreciation Week or as an end of year thank you, teachers everywhere need to be recognized for all the work and dedication they've shown this past school year. You don't need to spend a lot of money. Even something small can say a big thank you.
SRM tubes are perfect for a little thank you and when filled with a sweet treat, it fits the bill for cute and satisfying. Use stickers from any of SRM's adorable and inspiring school-themed sets to decorate any size tube. Using an awl, I poked a hole in the top of my lid and attached several lengths of twine to create a few hanging tags. The tags are stickers on a semi-clear plastic backing.
The bright red chevron paper bags are perfect for teacher appreciation, too. I cut out an apple shape in the front layer and inserted a piece of printed acetate inside. I shaped a stem and leaf by hand from cardstock and used a marker to outline it. Give your favorite teacher a gift card, decorated cookie, candies, or like me, a set of colorful pens. A small clothespin clip decorated with more stickers keep them secure. One more sentiment sticker across the bottom sends the message that we appreciate our teachers!
Don't forget to say thanks to the great teachers who have helped you or your kiddos grow this year!
