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.

This month theme is Inner Beauty. I knew what I wanted to do almost straight away - an Altered Mirror and knew which verse I would use. 1 Samuel 16:7c "Man Looks at outward appearance but the Lord looks at the heart".

We can dress ourselves up as much as we like, change our hair colour or style even keep up with the ever changing clothing trends but that isn't going to change who we are inside. Only God can make us beautiful on the inside but we do need to listen and allow him to change us.

It's been a busy busy month this month in our household, so finding a night to myself has been a bit of a luxury. I have really enjoyed the challenges this month and have managed to do three of the five challenges.

This is my take on the Sketch Challenge.

Second layout was Challenge 2 for the Verse of Scripture, and since the verse was based on "Friends, it was a great to do a layout about two of my dearest friends. They are a real blessing from the Lord, and have been a real source of encouragement to me, especially in my Christian walk.

Third layout is based on the word "Blessed". I don't often get to scrap photos of my parents and sisters, so this was the perfect challenge to do this. I have been so blessed in my life to be raised by wonderful Christian parents, and have sisters who love and support each other, even though we are all as different as chalk and cheese. I hope you have as much fun doing these layouts as I have had.

Here's my layout for the book of Faith theme: inner beauty.

I wasn't sure how many layouts on this month I would get done as I have started a new job and my children have had a nasty flu that has been going around this area... my son needed to stay home today from Church as he has a temperature so I have had the perfect opportunity to get this scrapping done while the girls went to church with their dad.

This layout is created using the sketch for inspiration.

created this wall hanging for the word challenge: Blessed - just a wee reminder that they are blessings... cause sometimes I need that. It measures about 6 x 12, with the photo being a 6 x 4.

These are my attempts at this months challenges.

This little piece of torn paper was the inspiration for my Word challenge. I was struggling to prepare for the SWS scrap day where I was hoping to knock over a few of the challenges, when I stopped to pick up a torn piece of paper on the floor - for those who don't know, my scrap room floor is usually covered in things. So I picked up this pie e of paper that had "Her children arise up and call her blessed, Proverbs 31:28" . If that wasn't God inspire me to do a LO on this verse I don't know what is.

This is said LO. I made the PP using Bazzill, AL flowers stamps and Enchanted ink.

Sketch challenges I still find very difficult to do, but had fun playing with this one.

This little wall hanging was made for a"Teeny Tiny" swap on Handmade craft forum, using this months verse challenge Proverbs 17:17a.

I am still hoping to get a LO done for this challenge.

How are you all going with your challenges?

Calling July Winners
Could the following ladies please email me your prefered email address to have your vouchers sent to.

Gayle Smith
Gennie Smith
Janelle Santa
Debbie Buckland

Thanks Annette I have your email :-)

I know you are all probably thinking "But she has my email, I used it to enter the comp" That's right, but the first month we ran the challenges I went by that rule of thinking and one of the ladies had an email change between entering and winning. It took 3 months to get the problem solved with Christian Book. So for all prizes to be issued and for my sanity in making sure the electronic vouchers are going to the right place, could you please send a quick email saying "this is my email to use".

Thanks Ladies.

The Search for Inner Beauty

This layout was created for this month's faith challenge. Layout was created using digi elements from the Carnival Collaboration Kit from Sweet Shoppe Designs - particularly Heather Roselli, Susan Bartolini and Shauna Clingerman. Brushes from Willro&co.

Love, Tracey xo

I've just come back from a scrapbooking retreat and have managed to put together some digi layouts for three of the challenges for this month. I have another one to come but it still needs a bit of tweaking! All the layouts were created using packs from Willro&co (our Ro!)

Man of Integrity - this layout is my response to the Sketch Challenge.

Blessed By Her Light - this one is for the challenge to use the word BLESSED.

A Friend Loves At All Times - this one is in the response to the bible verse challenge.
Hope you are all beavering away on your layouts too!

Love, Tracey xo
