Welcome to Revival Camp // my Field Guide Setup Video


Welcome to Summer Camp – for crafty babes! Yep, Revival Camp is underway and I am so excited about this adventure. All of the weekly topics feel like all the things I want to address.

Even though we’re on week 2, it took me some time to decide how I wanted to setup my guide. Once I figured out the best way that worked for me – I ran with it and filmed a little walk-thru!

Sign up for the workshop here >>> (there’s still time to register – it’s a self-paced course so you can join anytime!)
Check out my setup video here >>>

Thanks so much for watching! Be on the lookout for my next post on the Illustrated Faith blog when I show you my process for tackling the devotional itself.

Have a wonderful and crafty day!

pocket pages flip-thru // personal album volume 2 – part 3

hey crafty babes! let’s talk honestly about selfies. how many do you take? do you store them on your phone or do you use them in your pocket pages or layouts? please don’t tell me you delete them!

well, i take a fair amount of selfies. and each one really has a story to tell. so i decided a couple years ago that i was going to document my personal story through the selfies i took – which is what started my personal album series. it’s a diary/journal of sorts but only about me – and pocket style!! if you want to check out the previous flip-thrus, head to my YouTube channel!

this video flips through my second album. it’s the 3rd share and completes this volume. i love that this project just keeps on keepin’ on. so here i am sharing everything left in the album and you can also check out the next volume here.

enjoy – and let me know when you start your own personal album!

happy scrapping!

illustrated faith // human connections


Friends. Friends are so good for us. Sometimes we meet friends in school. Many times we meet them through other friends. And often we meet friends through the internet. And when one of those friends becomes a super good friend, you make a scrapbook page about them!
Join me over at where I am sharing a pocket page about my friend Casie (CultivatingCasie on Instagram). I am using the latest devotional kit by Illustrated Faith which you can find right here!

Check out the video here and head to the blog for detailed photos!



illustrated faith // blessings or lessons devotional

blessings or lessons

Many of our milestones could easily be categorized into either a lesson or a blessing. When you really think about the cards that life has dealt you (or the cards you have dealt yourself), how do you play them? Did you learn from it or were you blessed by what you experienced? Did you just brush it off and move on and thank God that he protected you from something else? Or worse, are you still hanging on to it while it sits unresolved in your heart?

I have definitely experienced all of the above. Even before this devotional – I have wondered why this or that happened and asked God to show me if this was a blessing or if he was trying to teach me something. Most of the time he was trying to teach me, because clearly I needed it! But other times, even losses, were blessings. Sometimes when you’re in the thick of it it’s hard to see – but with some time things usually becomes clear.

So having this topic in a beautifully written devotional by the gorgeous Stephanie Smokovich (owner of Bella Blvd) means that I get to really dig in and take a look at each of those stages or events and see where they fall. Or maybe I will even find some milestones that I hadn’t seen this way before. Maybe God will reveal something that’s still unresolved and help me resolve it. Maybe He will let me enjoy the new friendships I have made through getting out of my comfort zone. Maybe He will do the same for you through this devotional!
