This Created to Create Illustrated Faith kit review is not sponsored by Dayspring or Illustrated Faith, but there is a giveaway at the bottom of this post! Be sure to enter it by 9/5/17.
I received a kit as part of the launch team for this review. However, my views are my own. Links in this post are ministry affiliate links. Our ministry may receive a small fee if you purchase anything using our links.
Do you ever find that you purchase something or receive a gift and you just know the product was made for you? That’s how I felt when I received the Created to Create 2 kit by Illustrated Faith this month. I’m not going to hide the fact that I’m a huge fan of the Illustrated Faith line, but this kit struck me as extra special this month and here’s why (scroll down for the video review).
What’s Included in the Newest Kit?
The Created to Create 2 kit includes:
- 1 Note Card from Shanna
- 3 heart-shaped tip-ins
- Small stamp set
- Roll of Washi Tape
- 21 paper pieces
- 2 sticker sheets
- 4 devotional cards
- 4 journaling cards
Created to Create 2 Devotionals
The devotionals this month help to explore judgments we sometimes place on ourselves. It’s hard to look at other Bible journaling entries and NOT compare works of art to our stick figures and scribbles.
It’s taken many years and multiple classes for me to get to where I am on my art journey. I have had to tell myself that I am an artist! Although, sometimes I still let the occasional phrase, “I am not an artist” slip out. Just because I don’t currently sell my art or make a living off of it professionally, doesn’t mean that I’m not an artist. I’m an artist because I say so.
I hope you’ll consider how you feel about your art as you dive into this devotional and repeat after me…”I am an artist!”
On Week 3 there’s a quote by one of my favorite writers, Jon Acuff. His book Quitter helped me get through an abusive work situation. Much to my dismay, the answer wasn’t to quit immediately. I eventually left my job and moved into the writing career I have today because I didn’t just throw in the towel. If you are struggling with where you are today, I suggest reading both Quitter and Start. You can find them at your local library or for cheap on Amazon.
Created to Create Washi Tape
The washi tape is absolutely adorable. I’m going to have a hard time using it for sure so I’d better consider getting a second kit just to have some for later! I can see that I’ll use these cute paint brushes on everything…and I mean everything!
Created to Create Stamp Set
Although I miss the larger stamp sets, I am starting to learn to love the smaller ones. They are compact and fit nicely in my planner. This month the set comes with an artist theme and includes paint brushes, scissors, and a cute phrase that says “We are the Clay.” Isn’t that so true?
I need to stop trying to be the potter and just be the clay. I pray that God continues to mold me into the woman he delights in.
Illustrated Faith Created to Create Kit Video Review
Here’s the review I filmed earlier this week. Be sure to watch it so you can see how I tip-in my devotional cards into my Illustrated Faith planner and Strathmore Mixed Media journal. It’s easy and you don’t need any fancy tools! Plus I share a little bit of personal information on how one of my favorite bosses planted the seed that grew into the creative gal I am today.
Illustrated Faith Watercolor Review
I was fortunate enough to be able to try out the Illustrated Faith line of watercolors produced by Pebeo. These are great and didn’t bleed through my Bible at all! Here’s what I thought of them.
