Divine Design 2008 - Bible Verse Challenge
I am committed to memorizing more of God's Word this year. I am going to make it happen. To keep me on track, a few of my girlfriends and I are committed to sharing an on-going project all year. Would you share the journey with us?

We'll each create an on-going altered journal, rolodex card, scrapbook page, ATC or recipe card project... Each month we will choose a verse and get to stamping. We'll add that piece to our collection. We are going to work on the 8th of each month, at the end of the year, we'll have a wonderful keepsake to inspire or gift to give.

a few items of housekeeping

1. Must have a Bible verse printed, stamped, hand-written or computer generated as a focus of your project.

2. Upload with the scripture reference as your project title (i.e. John 1:14)

3. Use the Bible Verse Challenge keyword: BVC08 (same keyword all year) - While I do appreciate all kinds of inspirational messages, poems and quotes, for the purpose of this challenge, please respect the scripture reference guideline. Do not use this keyword if you have not used a Biblical scripture on your project.

4. No vendor restrictions. :)

**Post a link to your project so I can ooh and ahh! If you have questions, let me know. I am sure I'll miss a few things as this is my first attempt as a challenge hostess. However, feeble, I hope that God is glorified.

Lori! Thank you so much for this challenge! My goal is to do this with you all.


kbeth2002 01-10-2008 11:18 AM

What a wonderful challenge! I will definitely be subscribing to this thread and may even start creating something of my own each month!
Thank You!

Debra 01-10-2008 12:13 PM

Oops! I didn't put the reference in the title. Sorry about that. I will make sure I do it correctly next month.

JJStamper 01-10-2008 02:54 PM

Great Challenge! I will get started right now! I actually already started something that I think might work for this month.

Jami 01-10-2008 05:41 PM

Here's mine

And I will also title correctly in the future.:)

wooo-hooo! here's my card: http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...&ppuser=117787

This whole "thread" thing confuses me just a bit...but I am willing to learn = )

Tangerine Dream 01-10-2008 08:41 PM

I'm working on picking my verse(s) now!! Thanks Lori for the Challenge, I REALLY needed this!

Have a great Friday! I hope to post mine tomorrow!

grbscrap 01-11-2008 04:17 AM

Wow! What a neat challenge! I love this idea and hope to work on mine this weekend! Thanks

jblbellie 01-11-2008 10:59 AM

What a great idea! I'm going to work on mine this weekend

lazylizard 01-13-2008 07:21 PM

I think this is an excellent idea. I didn't read close enough the first time before I made my card, but I will turn it into something that can go onto a ring or something. Thanks for sharing this wonderful new challenge for us.
Here's the card I can up with: http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...00&ppuser=7104

onestampinmama 01-14-2008 11:03 AM

grbscrap 01-15-2008 10:32 AM

I finally go time to make mine! This is a wonderful challenge and will be so inspirational to me! I love all of the projects I've seen so far and have jotted down some of the verses that encourage me! Thanks for starting this, Lori!
Here's mine http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...&ppuser=116998

Debra 01-17-2008 05:29 AM

LOL I just realised I am probably going to post "I love that verse" on everyone's uploads. I truly mean that! I love God's Word.

cafemocha 01-17-2008 10:16 AM

This is such a great challenge! Thanks for starting this - I hope I can work on one this weekend. In the meantime, I love what all the rest of you have done and are really inspired and encouraged!

CareyP 01-23-2008 10:59 AM

I added my card, Peace Rose, but I don't know how to link to it.
This is going to be a fun challange!


Robyn O 01-23-2008 03:55 PM

Lori, what a great challenge. I am interested in joining and will catch up on January by the end of the month and then join everyone on the 8th of each month.

Last year I set the goal to read the bible all the way through and just about made it. Will continue that goal this year and this challenge will be the perfect compliment to that.

Bless you.

Just found this!!! - I guess I better get on the ball! Great challenge.

acable 01-31-2008 03:14 AM

Subscribing and looking forward to participating. :) Thanks for this awesome idea, Lori.

bubbasprincess 01-31-2008 07:51 PM

This is so awesome! I am glad I found this thread. I have goal to memorize verses too but haven't started it yet. This will give me the push I need.

teenastamps 01-31-2008 08:45 PM

oh my...so we are not "sending" anything anywhere...we are just making a card as described in first original starting post here...and keeping it for ourselves and putting it here for you all to see, right?

I want to jump in if that is the case...and I will be making a "make-up" card for the January 8th...

Then I will be on-track in Feb. (can I do that?)




PS--Lori, great idea, thank you!!! I'm going to send a link to this thread to a friend of mine...:)

teenastamps 01-31-2008 08:49 PM

yet another question, sorry!

I noticed the variety of different items to be made...

Do we all make the same thing every month?


Jan. Card
Feb 6x6 etc.

Or do we just make whatever we want every month?

Hope that made sense...

Here is the link to the gallary: BVC08

I am so excited to work on this challenge! I meet with a group of ladies every week for our bible study and think that I will make them something also. We are studying the Bad Girls of the Bible (a great study!) and every couple of weeks we study a different "Bad Girl". Next week will be Delilah. She is such a "bad" girl!

I think this is a wonderful project! Hope to get something done today with the kids home from school! :)

Meema 02-01-2008 06:21 AM

Okay... here is my posting for January! (I am ready with my Feb posting!)
I am SO *inspired* by this challenge. Have decided to make 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 pages to make an album some day!
Thank you, Lori Craig for starting this!

Jami 02-01-2008 10:59 AM

To answer some questions and clarify:

** each person decides what type of on-going project they want for themselves - a recipe file, a 6x6 album, an ATC collection, a tin full of cards, etc.

**each month you will create a new one with a different Bible verse of your choice to add to your collection and at some point you may want to also decorate the container and show us.

**upload a photo of your creation to the SCS gallery on the 8th of each month. It's ok to join any time and play catch up if you like. You can also upload on any other day if you happen to miss uploading on the 8th. Remember to use the keyword and also please post a link to this thread in your gallery description inviting others to play as well.

**if you have a blog, of course upload there as well and invite people to join us by providing a link to this thread.

**once you have posted in the gallery come back to this thread and post a link for all of us to go take a look.

**at the end of the year you may choose to keep your collection or give it as a gift. I'm betting a lot of us will wish we made 2 or 3 simultaneously so we'd have 1 to keep and 1 or 2 to give.

HTH. Let us know if you have any more questions or if I missed answering something.

February 8th is only one week away ladies!!!:) :)

mhowe 02-01-2008 01:12 PM

bubbasprincess 02-04-2008 12:58 PM

Here is mine. I am gonna go clean my desk from making this and then come back and check out all the BVC08 uploads.

peggysue 02-04-2008 01:03 PM

Hey! I just found this thread, what a GREAT idea! Subscribing so when I get a chance to stamp again this week I can think of a contribution. :)

debbiedee 02-04-2008 02:05 PM

I am subscribing to this too. I am going to try to do this with you all. I just need to figure out how I want to "journal" them or whatever else to do with each verse.

LMstamps 02-05-2008 05:44 PM

Lori...Thanks for this wonderful thread! Here is my entry for January...Psalm 106:1. I am making mine as 6x6 Pages and putting them in an album
