Introducing Providence 365

Providence 365 defined:

Providence \ˈprä-və-dən(t)s, -ˌden(t)s\
1 : a often capitalized : divine guidance or care
b capitalized : God conceived as the POWER sustaining and guiding human destiny
2: the quality or state of being provident

365 = Days in a year

2011= A Full Year of His Blessings


Providence 365:
"By the Shore Designs" and "Precepts and Promises"are excited to introduce Providence 365 for the 2011 Calendar Year. Providence 365 is the opportunity to journey through the year, growing in your individual faith walk and discovering His blessings that surround you. Each Sunday at Faith Sisters, we will provide a Bible Verse – His Word - as your weekly prompt. From there, we encourage you to use that verse as your guide for the week. Reflect on the verse, open your eyes and use all of your senses to find how that verse is truly applicable in your own life. Grab your camera and capture a picture or two and create a layout as a tangible reminder of His Love and Providence.
Your layouts:
The options are unlimited. Simple & Clean, Shabby Chic, Grunge, the choice is yours. Each week’s layout may be unique or you may choose a single template to use throughout the year. Let this journey reflect your personal style. (If you digi-scrap, while certainly not required, we encourage you to use the wonderful papers and elements that Faith Sisters offers in our store)

Your photographs:
Take at least one picture a week on this journey and use it on your layout. Some of you may choose to take a picture each day. Let the bible verse lead you throughout the week. Open your eyes to all of His blessings. His Hand is everywhere. We pray that our Bible Verse and prompt will guide you and allow you to see even the smallest of blessings in your life.

Your journaling:
Your layouts should again be reflective of you. Maybe you are gifted at the written word. Write away. Let the focus of your journey be in print with only one or two pictures. Perhaps you are a gifted photographer that has the eye to capture those perfect images that tell the ‘whole story’. In that case, you may choose to keep your journaling to a minimum.

A few Journaling Prompts to get you started:
• I saw God’s hand of Providence this week in:
• I was blessed this week by:
• Today, God blessed me with:
• We will share more ideas for journaling throughout the year.

There is no right or wrong. Providence 365 is your journey. Allow us to provide a starting point each week for personal reflection and the opportunity for you to open your eyes and see His Hand – His Providence in your life.

We encourage you to subscribe to the Providence 365 Forum for weekly updates. (forum and gallery will be available shortly) If you are an email subscriber to the Faith Sister Blog, you will receive an email update with the current week’s Bible Verse and Focus.

Throughout the year we will share a freebie or two with participants to use on your layouts. But even more than a freebie, our hope and prayer is that through Providence 365 you will grow in your walk and your faith while creating a legacy to pass on to others.

Your first Bible Verse prompt will be provided on Sunday, January 2nd . So the obvious question is, what about January 1st. Your layout for January 1st will be your cover page. Take a picture (or use a favorite photo) that shares a glimpse of where or how you see God’s hand in your life. Have fun with this layout.

Here is my layout; "For me, I always feel closest to God when I am sitting on the shore; the roar of the ocean reflects His power; the gentle breeze is when He kisses my cheek and whispers in my ear, the solitude is my special time with Him. "

You may download our introductory Providence 365 word art as our freebie to you. Here ( or Here (4Shared). Feel free to use this word art on your cover layout and throughout the year.

Post your cover layout (and future layouts) in our Providence 365 gallery at Faith Sisters.

The journey is yours – the blessings are His. His Providence.

DECEMBER 1,2,3 Scrap!

by the shore Designs hosts the Designer Challenge at Faith Sisters on the third Thursday of the month. Please join me this month! The challenge follows.

* * *

What a wonderful time of the year! During the season of Advent we prepare for a celebration of the birth of Christ. The hustle and bustle; decking the halls, Christmas parties, shopping and the sharing of family traditions are all part of our daily lives in December. Taking time to reflect on the TRUE meaning of the season is something that we each need to do – as often as possible. God’s gift to us came in the form of a newborn Baby Boy.

This week, an email arrived in my in-box. It is one I have seen for the last few years during the Christmas season – and it still moves me…please let me share this message with you :

The "W" in Christmas

Each December, I vowed to make Christmas a calm and peaceful experience. I had cut back on nonessential obligations - extensive card writing, endless baking, decorating, and even overspending. Yet still, I found myself exhausted, unable to appreciate the precious family moments, and of course, the true meaning of Christmas.

My son, Nicholas, was in kindergarten that year. It was an exciting season for a six-year-old. For weeks, he'd been memorizing songs for his school's "Winter Pageant."

I didn't have the heart to tell him I'd be working the night of the production. Unwilling to miss his shining moment, I spoke with his teacher. She assured me there'd be a dress rehearsal the morning of the presentation. All parents unable to attend that evening were welcome to come then. Fortunately, Nicholas seemed happy with the compromise.

So, the morning of the dress rehearsal, I filed in ten minutes early, found a spot on the cafeteria floor and sat down. Around the room, I saw several other parents quietly scampering to their seats. As I waited, the students were led into the room. Each class, accompanied by their teacher, sat cross-legged on the floor. Then, each group, one by one, rose to perform their song.

Because the public school system had long stopped referring to the holiday as Christmas," I didn't expect anything other than fun, commercial entertainment - songs of reindeer, Santa Claus, snowflakes and good cheer. So, when my son's class rose to sing, "Christmas Love," I was slightly taken aback by its bold title. Nicholas was aglow, as were all of his classmates, adorned in fuzzy mittens, red sweaters, and bright snowcaps upon their heads. Those in the front row-center stage -- held up large letters, one by one, to spell out the title of the song. As the class would sing "C is for Christmas," a child would hold up the letter C. Then, "H is for Happy," and on and on, until each child holding up his portion had presented the complete message, "Christmas Love."

The performance was going smoothly, until suddenly, we noticed her; a small, quiet, girl in the front row holding the letter "M" upside down -- totally unaware her letter "M" appeared as a “W." The audience of 1st through 6th graders snickered at this little one's mistake. But she had no idea they were laughing at her, so she stood tall, proudly holding her "W." Although many teachers tried to shush the children, the laughter continued until the last letter was raised, and we all saw it together. A hush came over the audience and eyes began to widen. In that instant, we understood the reason we were there, why we celebrated the holiday in the first place, why even in the chaos, there was a purpose for our festivities. For when the last letter was held high, the message read loud and clear:

"C H R I S T W A S L O V E"

And He still is! I hope this special message is one that helps you reflect on CHRISTmas and the reason for this celebration!


Our December 1,2,3 Scrap! challenge is about Celebration

1. The theme of your layout is Celebration! Perhaps you can share how your family celebrates Jesus’ birthday. Perhaps it is the celebration of a milestone, a family birthday, a promotion. The choice is yours.

2. Use three photos. (Try to make them all close-ups – really zoom that camera – or crop tool – in close)

3. Use only 3 different papers and only 3 different elements (but you can use these as often as you wish on the layout.

For those that participate in our December 1,2,3 Scrap Challenge, my gift to you will be my just released “Bethlehem” quick page.

Simply post your layout in our 1,2,3 Scrap! Gallery and provide a link to the layout in our 1,2,3, Scrap! Forum
Are you ready? 1,2,3 Scrap!

November 1,2,3 Scrap! Challenge

It is the third Thursday of the month - time for our November 1,2,3 Scrap! Challenge.

Thanksgiving is a holiday to express thankfulness, gratitude, and appreciation to God, family and friends for which all have been of material possessions and relationships. Traditionally, it has been a time to give thanks for a bountiful harvest. In Canada, Thanksgiving is held in October; in the United States, Thanksgiving is held in November. We each have so much to be thankful for - year-round.

This month's challenge ~ create a layout or card with the following:

1. Use the words Thanksgiving or Give Thanks in your layout
2. Use however many pictures you choose, but at least one of the pictures needs to include
. (I know this is hard, but you can do it)
3. Use a heart somewhere on your layout.

If you are creating your layout or card digitally, please use some of the papers and elements in our Faith Sisters Store.

To help you get started, here is my Give Thanks Word Art - created just for this challenge. You may download it for free here

Please post your layout (or card) in the 1,2,3 Scrap! Forum and the 1,2,3 Scrap! gallery. Spread the word and let everyone know how much you have to be thankful for.

I can't wait to see what you create this month!

Are you ready? 1,2,3 Scrap!

I have been scrapbooking and preserving our families memories since 1994. Around 2005, I began adding digital pages to our albums. I absolutely love both methods of scrapbooking. Tradtional and digital each offer a wonderful creative outlet while allowing me to capture memories for my family and friends to enjoy for years to come. In late August, I was invited to join Faith Sisters as a digital designer. This is a true blessing for me and a great place to call "home". I encourage you to check out their website. The digital offerings are wonderful and the inspiration is fabulous. If you like challenges, this is certainly the place to visit. Designer challenges are a regular feature.

You can download the mini kit here through October 18th - after that the complete Scrap It kit (even more pretty paper and cute embellishments for your scrapping 'needs') will be available in my store at FaithSisters. The mini kit is my gift to you. You can also enter to win my latest Digital Collection - Life's a Quilt Paper and Elements! You can enter three ways.

1. Follow me on this website (right column) and leave a message in this post letting me know you did.

2. Follow me on Facebook and leave a separate message in this post.

3. In yet a separate message post here (because I want you to maximize your chances to win!), please let me know the theme for a digital kit that you would like to see in by the Shore designs' store.

You can do one, two, three or all of the above. Each separate comment will reflect an entry. Please include your e-mail in each comment so you can be contacted when you win. Winner(s) will be chosen using

You may also follow me on Twitter and I hope you do. You never know, I may just extend a special offer there that you won't see either here or on facebook.

Just released - Life's A Quilt - a paper collection and elements collection designed for both those that appreciate the joys of quilting as well as those that recognize that quilting parallels life in so many ways.

A quilt is like love, made to last forever.

Lay it Down

Jennifer at Faith Sisters has just posted her October "My Sweet Sweet Song" challenge - here. The theme - Lay it Down.

Have I told you that I LOVE challenges. They start the creative juices flowing and inspire you to try something new in your scrapbooking and faithbooking. Perhaps it is using a color palette that you have not used before - or a new technique - or perhaps a topic which you have shied away from. And the best part - you complete another layout for your albums.

by the Shore designs stepped up to the designer challenge and created a special mini-kit based on this month's theme and color scheme. There are also two quickpages available (and they are free through the end of October) Quick Page 1 and Quick Page 2. Here are previews of my kit and of my two quickpages. (I will also be working on my own layout based on Jennifer's Challenge - oh, but what song.....)

My friends - have a wonderful day.... by the Shore

Two New Quick Pages

Fall is here! I love this time of year! The colors are vibrant and there's a freshness - a crispness - in the air. A little cool in the evening and ever so pleasant during the day.

Introducing two new 12x12 quick pages - what a great way to display your favorite Fall pictures. Truly digital scrapbooking at it's easiest. Simply add your photos, a little journaling - and you are done! Both quick pages are available for only $1 each at FaithSisters - here.

Wherever you are - enjoy this beautiful time of the year
Have a great Fall day - by the Shore...
