Restoring Our Womanhood

Scrap of Faith is a Christian Crafting Site dedicated to inspiring women in their faith and in their hobbies.

Each month a new theme will be posted, with verses to encourage, with challenges to inspirire you both in your faith and in your craft. We hope that you will jump on board the journey of Restoring your Womanhood and that God will use these challanges to draw us closer to Him and also give us a purpose in our roles.

We would love to hear from those who are following along so please leave a comment, and share a link to your blog :-) Also on the Scrap of Faith forum there is a weekly thread for encouraging each other through the journey.

It is hard to believe that we are nearly at the end of November already. The highlight of this month for me was meeting so many gorgeous girls from the Scrap of Faith Forum at our retreat earlier this month - I just hope that the next retreat will see so many more of you attend. It was a time of real blessing.

I haven't managed to do a lot of scrapbooking this month, but I did manage to complete a couple of the challenges at the Scrap of Faith retreat. Here are my takes on the Sketch Challenge (Challenge 1) and also Challenge 4.

I am looking forward to seeing your take on the challenges this month. Don't forget to email them in.
His Princess Layout

This one will look familiar to those of you who were able to come to the retreat. For those who didn't make it ... this is the layout class we did while there.

Full instructions are available here.

If you haven't already done your challenge layouts this one covers the Book of Faith challenge, but could also be used for the verse challenge or maybe you could use the background techniques for the Mystery Challenge.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

This months theme is His Princess, we are daughter, of the most high King or as we say at SOF My daddy is the king that makes me a princess. I made this book to celebrate the fact that by faith we are given the right to be called children of God. We are loved by God, and we are forgiven and set free by his Grace.

Full of bling and pretty things.For full intructions go to
The mini book has been made to fit into the tin made at the retreat. For those not at the retreat please go to
for instructions on how to alter a tin.

Royal Blessings

Words just can't describe what an incredible weekend the SoF retreat was. So hard to believe that after all the planing and anticipation it's over.

The biggest thrill of the weekend for me was seeing God working in the lives of the girls who attended and seeing the love that the SoF girls had for each other and their willingingness to share that love with new girls who had not been on the SoF forum. The "sisterhood" in Christ was just amazing.

I just pray that for the next retreat (looking at Aprli, May or June 2o10) that many more of you girls can come, as those of you who are on the forum and join in on the blog, were so dearly missed.

So for your viewing pleasure here are some photos from the weekend :-)

A quick appology for being behind in the challenge comps from September to October.

With the Scrap of Faith retreat happening this weekend (YEAH!) I just have spent all my spare SoF time organising that and I've neglected my part on the blog :-( So to bring you all up to speed The following weekend, 14th of November I will draw the winners for September and October, I will also extend the deadline for October entries to that date. The November Challenges are up, but as the themes, Sisters in Christ & His Princess are so reflective of the retreat, we'll have October and November running together for awhile :-) (see the bottom of this post for what the October Challenges are)

So for all of you who are waiting on challenge information and winners, you are not forgotten just delayed.

Also given the horrible turn in the economy and the fall in the Aussie Dollar from 95c US to 65c US I've had to make the voucher at Christian Book $20 instead of $3o.


Challenge 1 - to any size layout, traditional or digi based on this sketch by Trina McClune.
Challenge 2 - Verse Challenge - Scrap a Layout or Beyond the Page item featuring the following verse: 1 Timothy 5:1b-2 Treat younger men as brothers, older women as mothers, and younger women as sisters, with absolute purity.
Challenge 3 - Word Challenge - The word for September is "FAITHFULNESS". Do a Layout or Off the Page project based on "FAITHFULNESS". (The inspiration for this word came from what type of qualities do God have and what qualities in friendship would he desire of us)
Challenge 4 - Book of Faith Challenge - The theme for this month's Book of Faith is "Sister's in Christ (our Christian family)"
Challenge 5 - Mystery Challange - Do a layout about your childhood family. Were they Christian, how did they shape who you are in Christ today? If they were not Christian journal about the challenges of this.
Sister's In Christ

I know this one is a bit late for October ... I actually did have it done last week but somehow forgot to post it here on the blog. (I got busy working on my layout class for the retreat.)

Full step by step instructions to make this layout are available by clicking on this link.

And speaking of the retreat ... only 4 more sleeps to go! I am looking forward to meeting up with my Scrap of Faith Sisters in Christ this side of heaven. No doubt after the retreat I'll have many more photos of my 'sisters' and will be able to scrap a whole series of 'Sisters in Christ' layouts!

Here's just a little sneaky look at the layout class I'll be teaching ... just a little bit royal looking!
