Divine Design Bible Verse Challenge 2018
 
I have had a great time hosting the Divine Design Bible Verse Challenge in 2010-2017. I have had requests to continue this for 2018, and I am more than happy to do so.

This is an opportunity for you to memorize ** Scripture each month. And to help you do so, you make any kind of paper project, with the Scripture as the focus, such as: Album pages, bookmarks, cards, calendar pages, and anything else that works for you.

I have been making a 6x6 Album for each year, with a month for each page. Then I have can keep going through them to refresh my memory on the Scriptures I have memorized, so as to keep them in my mind. I put each current month in a stand where I can see it often, then add it to my album each month.

There are a lot of great scripture stamps out there, but if you don't have any, don't let that stop you. You can print scriptures from your computer! This challenge is a great tool to help you with memorizing & meditating on God's Word. You can join anytime and I hope you will. The guidelines are simple:

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

2. Upload a picture of your project to the Gallery with the scripture reference as your project title (i.e. BVC18 - John 1:14)

3. Be sure to then post in this thread what Month you have uploaded and provide a link to your project in this thread. That way we can see what each other has done, and encourage one another with comments in the Gallery. You might even be inspired to use one of the Scriptures you see as a future choice for yourself.

4. Be sure to put BVC18 as a Keyword when you Upload. This is the Bible Verse Challenge keyword: BVC18 (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.

5. No vendor restrictions.

6. The goal will be to post one project for each month of 2018. Try to post it no later than the end of each month (but you can still post later than that, too).

I look forward to seeing all the great projects in the BVC18 gallery! Please feel free to PM me if you you have any questions!

I will post a link to the BVC18 Gallery once we have something in there..

I pray this blesses each of you, as it does me, each month.

Blessings,
LM

** The intent of the the challenge is to combine our love of scripture and our love of stamping. The goal is also to work on memorizing. I understand that not all are able to memorize, and I would never tell anyone that they cannot participate if they cannot get their posted verses memorized.

Thanks LM...Here is one card I made this month. I've been making so many cards for donation (about 600 a year) that I have fallen behind in sending cards personally. This year I want to send a scripture cared monthly.

BVC18 Ps.121:1-2 by FayeMakesCards - at Splitcoaststampers


This verse often comes to mind on days when energy is low such as today. Lifting up my eyes!

Julie Gearinger 01-12-2018 11:05 PM

This card uses Psalm 46:10- Be Still and Know that I Am God.... a wonderful verse to memorize (and easy)...

Ps 46:10 Be Still and Know by Julie Gearinger - at Splitcoaststampers

Julie Gearinger 01-13-2018 10:40 PM

This is one of the verses from last year but I linked to help promote this challenge- hugs to all of you!

Failed miserably with this challenge last year, but I am hoping to try again this year! I am working on a couple “albums” as gifts this Christmas ... so, hopefully this will keep me on track!

LMstamps 01-15-2018 06:58 AM

Sewbusymom...Welcome Back! I am so glad you are joining us again this year. :-) LM

thepapercraftess 01-22-2018 08:56 PM

hello I am new here, i think this is a fabulous idea and hope to be able to join you in this challenge but have a couple of questions... do we follow a prompt? for example we are prompted to create a LO on psalm 23 ? or do we chose our own scripture to use in our work. also can I use die cut words too? I have dies which cut words like faith, love, hope etc can they be incorporated with the stamped or printed verse? are we creating scrapbook layouts rather than cards? sorry for all the questions


God bless you

My understanding (and I've only been participating for one year) is that there has to be scripture on the card or layout...it can include other choices of words but must have scripture to be posted in the gallery of BVC18.


I have not found an easy way to locate scripture from wordartwednesday.com but they have beautiful fonts of scripture that you print yourself.

LMstamps 01-23-2018 08:05 AM

Welcome Teresa! :-)
 
Hi Teresa...Welcome, I am so glad you joined! As Faye said above, There has to be a Scripture Verse on Your Card, but you pick the Scripture, hopefully one you can memorize/meditate on during the month. Yes, you can add other words, die-cuts, embellishments. You can make any type of project that you want (such as Cards, Scrapbook Pages, 3-D Projects, etc.). HTH. :-) LM

I made a card today and put my Bible verse, inside! If I remember I will photograph inside next time I do that. Would that count? LOL I already mailed it. I have to remember to make a card with the Bible verse on the outside!

LMstamps 01-27-2018 04:22 PM

Sharon, Yes that counts...Anything to get YOU posting monthly on this thread again! :-) I shouldn't talk, I am so behind. I just started stamping again today, after over a month of not stamping! I was so happy to be back stamping! :-) LM

Another wonderful verse Psalm 46:1-

TCC87 Our Refuge by Julie Gearinger - at Splitcoaststampers

In light of all that is happening in our world today, this verse definitely brings me comfort- hugs, sweet friends!

smadson 02-25-2018 12:59 PM

Here is mine for February! Yay!


FS577CC675 BVC18 Exodus 15:2 sm by smadson - at Splitcoaststampers

FayeMakesCards 03-15-2018 06:28 AM

Here is mine from January! Uploading is the difficult for me...

Needed to remind myself of this verse through much of January. Actually made the card for myself.


Remember Ps. 46:1 by FayeMakesCards - at Splitcoaststampers

smadson 03-15-2018 07:32 AM

Not much crafting now, as we are selling and downsizing. I have cleaned and packed some of my craft things so everything shows well. Requesting prayers during this time, for God's timing and direction. Thank you.

Julie Gearinger 03-21-2018 12:49 PM

Here are a few more to promote this challenge:

TCC89_CAS473 Live By Faith by Julie Gearinger - at Splitcoaststampers
SC689 Snowflake Thanks by Julie Gearinger - at Splitcoaststampers
ODBD Let Us Love One Another by Julie Gearinger - at Splitcoaststampers
Psalm 57:1 Have Mercy on Me by Julie Gearinger - at Splitcoaststampers
ODBD Americana Quilt God Verses 2 by Julie Gearinger - at Splitcoaststampers
SC688 Lead Me by Julie Gearinger - at Splitcoaststampers
MIX267 Purple Peony by Julie Gearinger - at Splitcoaststampers

Most of the verses are from Psalms- still working on memorizing them all. I tend to struggle with remembering the reference more than the verse- anyone else have that issue?

Sharon, I just prayed for you- that your home will sell quickly and that He will give you the strength you need for your downsizing. I know it is a lot of work, sweet friend!

Hugs and I hope all of you have a blessed week!

smadson 03-21-2018 02:24 PM

Thank you, Julie for the prayers! Love all your scripture cards!

smadson 03-31-2018 05:36 AM

Stopping in to say Happy Easter!

And to tell you that we sold our house in 2 weeks. ! We close in 30 days, so we have been busy finding something. We got what we wanted, praise the Lord! We had been told that we couldn’t get into one of these duplexes that we loved until May! We needed to be out of here before the 30th. I told DH call and check again. She had one come open early! So we can start moving in the 20th.

My verse:


"Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be the glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end." Ephesians 3:20-21




Thank you for your prayers!

AnniePanda 03-31-2018 05:54 AM

All of our prayers for Sharon have been answered! Will continue to pray for you and DH to have health and stamina for this transition.

Julie Gearinger 04-04-2018 08:13 AM

Praise the Lord Sharon, what wonderful answers to prayer!! Hugs and will continue to pray as you move and get settled :-)

Julie how is your husband? Been praying.

FayeMakesCards 06-07-2018 05:07 PM

This is my June card. I made this right after hearing a sermon on this scripture. Had an impact on me. Tucked under the scripture is Phil. 4:5 handwritten on a pull-out piece. Sent this to my pastor already!

BVC18 Phil.4:6 by FayeMakesCards - at Splitcoaststampers


I didn't post one in May but will do that yet as I did make one.

I did not mark this card for BVC18, don't know how to change that so it is under the MISTI challenge.

Faye, just go to you gallery, click on the card and click on edit. In the keyword box, put a comma after the Misti keyword and add the BVC18 keyword!
