The Kit – Faith365: Gotta Have Faith
Faith365: Gotta Have Faith is a great kit which has some wonderful soft colors in the papers and elements. There are plenty of elements to choose from in this kit. Many of the elements and word art are faith based but there are enough non-faith based elements to make this kit appropriate for any type of layout. There are also several different journaling boxes available in this kit as well. You can pick this kit up starting today at Scrap n’ Pieces and this is no April Fool’s Joke.
Using Faith365: Gotta Have Faith
I used this kit to create two different layouts featuring pictures taken this year. This kit was easy to work with and helped me really think about using this simple pictures to highlight my own faith.
Layout One – After the Storm
Earlier this year the meteorologists predicted that we were in for a spring of wicked weather. While it hasn’t turned out to be as dire as predicted we have had a couple of active thunderstorms. On January 17, we had a lot of lightning, strong winds, and heavy rain. After the storm passed I went outside and noticed how bright it was. Colors seemed to be more vivid so I quickly grabbed my phone and took a few pictures. I took three from the front of the house and one from the back. In some you can still see some of the dark clouds in the sky. When I was a child I was so frightened of storms which growing up in Florida can be a hard fear to have. As I’ve gotten older my faith has made it easier to be calm during the storm. The template I used was ChrissyW – Minimalish 1234_4. The fonts used is Courier Std Bold for the journaling and KG Chelsea Marlot Script Regular for the title.
Layout Two – Skype Call
When you have family that lives far away you have to rely on technology to stay in touch with each other. And when there is a grandbaby involved being able to Skype becomes almost vital. It is such a blessing to be able to see Lillian grow. And hopefully, being able to see us from time to time will help us not be complete strangers when we get to see each other “in real life” again. Getting to start off our anniversary day Skyping. Faith comes into play when you know that where this special family is living is Kabul, Afghanistan. They work for Mennonite Central Committee helping to get funding for a variety of projects included programs for literacy for females and dealing with the results of domestic abuse. I used the ChrissyW template sample pack 7_2. The font is Janda Snickerdoodle Serif Bold. I really loved the wifi word hard because it seems to be a perfect match for a Skype call related layout.
