If you've been meaning to check out the first kit from Illustrated Faith that was released through DaySpring then now is the time... on Thursday the new kit is revealed which will mean this one gets retired!
It's called Created to Create and the devotional was written by our inspirational leader Shanna Noel. The kit comes with everything you see here - the devotional, a 6x4" stamp set, an ink pad, washi tape, sharable scripture cards and more! I only just received mine a little while ago and dived straight in so I've got a couple of pages to share with you...
Right from the very first day of the devotional it instantly inspired me. I don't know about you but often in social situations I downplay my creative endeavors as a frivolous pursuit that's of little importance in 'the real world'. But here it is in black and white - and in the Old Testament no less - the Lord called forth specific people to be gifted with "skill, knowledge, intelligence and all craftmanship" through the infilling of God's Spirit. There were weavers and carvers and embroiderers and engravers and designers and they were all called by God to use their skills to glorify Him. We shouldn't be ashamed of our talents but should celebrated the fact that we have been created by a creative God to be creative!
The stamps in this kit are just so fun aren't they? I can definitely see myself using these for far more than just bible journaling. And speaking of stamps, Day Spring have now just added the first lot of Bella Blvd Illustrated Faith stamp sets to their collection of products, along with acrylic blocks and ink pads and a whole range of other accessories. You can check out the whole collection HERE.
