Nieuwe blog erbij

Sinds kort heb ik een nieuwe blog aangemaakt. Aangezien ik naast scrappen nog veel meer creatief bezig ben, wil ik dat allemaal op mijn andere blog laten zien:


Dus vanaf nu hier alleen maar gescrapte creaties.

I recently started another blog. I make so much other stuff, besides scrapbooking. So I want to show those creations over there:


So from now on only my scrapcreations on this blog.

Faith Blog Hop, Proverbs 31

Welcome to another special Faith Blog Hop sponsored by Paper Tree House Studio! You should be coming from Kari's Blog. If not, please start at the beginning on Paper Tree House Studio's.

At the end of every month a group of bold women gather to give Glory to God with the talents He has given us in a very loud way... :) Our prayer is that through the projects we have created you Will be able to see Him in all of His Glory! May He touch you today as we look at the theme of the Proverbs 31 woman, and may you find that you are indeed everything He designed you to be.

This is how the hop works:
Below you will find the list of the beautiful and brave women that are ready to show their weaknesses in order that you may see His strength. :) Follow the line-up and please leave some love throughout the way. Allow yourself to cry, laugh, smile, along with any other emotion the Lord may bring your way. You will find that there are many prizes throughout the hop. In order to qualify to receive them you must be a follower of the blog and you must leave a comment. Know that if you are announced as the winner of a prize you are responsible for contacting us in order for us to make the prize go your way.

Here are our sponsors:

Paper Tree House Studio: Scrapbooking Kit (valued at $45)
Tombow: Amazing Adhesive Pack
Scrapbook News and Review: 1 year subscription to their magazine.
Punky Sprouts: Sweetie Album
Sweet Stamper: Stampin' Up Stamp Set

Now let's get the hop started! :)

The woman described in Proverbs 31 seems to be perfect! She works hard for her family, keeps up with the house, makes sure that the entire family is fed, is respected by others and her husband, and the list goes on... It can be very overwhelming to try to attain her status- which leaves many of us feeling as though we do not amount to God's standards. If you are anything like me, you too have felt as though there is always something that is just not right in your womanhood. Maybe you are not sweet enough, or neat enough, or submissive enough, or clean enough... Whatever label you do not amount to it can leave you feeling overwhelmed and discouraged.

God did not put this part of Scripture in the Bible so that we would draw away from Him filled with shame due to our incapacity to do what He expects of us. On the contrary, I have become every day more certain that He inspired these words because He wants to show us His Grace. The truth is: we all fall short of the Glory of God and there is not even one that is good amongst us. He KNEW this when He made us and when He decided to save us- and in this He loved us.

The proverbs 31 woman is meant to be a reminder of how much we need Christ! God desires that we would be women like the one portrayed there, and He knew that these areas would be our weaknesses, so He gave us this map of virtues so that we would not conform to the world but allow Him to transform us. The Bible teaches that in our weaknesses He is strong! My prayer is that you would allow the Lord to show you those areas where you indeed fail so that in turn you would learn to be mesmerized by His great strength. You will be doing things you never imagined when you fully rely on Him. In Him you already are the Proverbs 31 Woman you so desire to be. May He show you that truth today as He heals you from all insecurities.

And this is the layout I made, inspired by the Proverbs 31 Woman.

The Title is Proverbs 31 verse 25:
Strength and dignity are her clothing,
And she smiles at the future.

The journaling says:
I love proverbs, either biblical or non biblical.
After a difficult time in life, I can say that I've spiritual grown in life. I've learned to choose for myself more, without feeling quilty. I will smile at the future. Life is beutiful!

What I wanted to say with this layout is that I do smile at the future. How rough things may be, or has been, there is always a hopeful future with God. No matter how many tears you cry, there is always a rainbow waiting for you.
He always knows what's best for you. God gives me the strength to go on. He is always there with me!

So now for you next stop, just hop on to Melin's Blog Remember to leave a comment on my post if you want to be considered for one of the Grand Prizes. :)

Love in Christ,

Wendy Swenne

Dude, where's my bike?

Scrapdelight heeft een challenge die op mijn lijf geschreven is :D. Gebruik verf. Tsja, daar hou ik wel van.
Dit is de layout die ik gemaakt heb. De koperkleurige vegen zijn de verf. Het papier heb ik allemaal uit mijn restjes bak gehaald. Zo raakt die ook ooit nog eens leeg (ahum.... kan nog wel even duren, want er zit nog genoeg in).

Scrapdelight has a challenge that's totally my thing :D Use paint. Yeah, well, I like that. This is the layout I made. The copper colored smudges is the paint. And the papers are all scraps I saved in a box. So now it's a bit more empty...although there is lots of bits and pieces, so it will take some time to empty that box.

Dry your eyes

Deze layout heb ik gemaakt voor de challenge op Scrapping the Music.
Weer eens heel wat anders, want ik vind paars een mooie kleur, maar wel heel moeilijk om te scrappen.

I made this layout for the challenge on Scrapping the Music. Something completely different, because I love the color purple, but when I comes to scrap that color, I find that very difficult.
