Printable Bible Journaling Tip-ins Made from Vintage Hand-Dyed Maps






This week I have a new set of  printable Bible Journaling Tip-In cards!  They're made from hand-dyed, vintage maps!  (I think my fingers are going to be permanently stained pink and blue because I can't stop dyeing paper!)

The set comes with 9 blank cards and 9 cards with scriptures all of which center around God's love for and omnipotence in the world.  ❤❤❤

Sometimes the news can be disturbing (sometimes?) and for me the best thing to do is turn it off and meditate on the Word and pray for the people of this world who are sad, hurt, lonely and confused.  

I was inspired by the song "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands".  It's a simple song, with a powerful message of resting in God's care. 

When I'm feeling overwhelmed and worry and fear and anxiety are knocking on the door, resting in and meditating on God's goodness (no matter what the situation may look like) is what brings me back to peace.

I hope you have a weekend filled with love and rest!


Peace & Grace,

Prayer Notes Mini Book and Mother's Day Junk Journal


Printable mini book for your bible or faith art journal.


Prayer Notes Mini Book


  Pink Paper Peppermints newsletter freebie! yay!

I created a little Prayer Notes mini book with the free download from last week's newsletter and shared it on Instagram this week.  If you missed out last week, be sure to subscribe before Friday because I'll be including the link to the freebie again!  Here's that video:

To Put the Book Together

I just printed out the book pages twice and then cut them out and sewed them back to back (around two sides only) to create the pocket. 

I used the decorative stitches on my machine because I think they are so pretty.

Next I die cut some color-coordinated tags, typed the names of my "prayees" on them and attached ribbon.


If you try and roll a small tag into your typewriter it might get chewed up or worse, stuck.  I used temporary adhesive and attached mine to a full sheet of paper.  You still have to roll the sheet in carefully, but it's a lot easier.

Finally I attached some pretty charms and tassels made by my friend Amy (@mommymuddling on Instagram) and tucked it into a pocket in my journal.

I use this little book as a prompt to remind me of names and situations that I want to pray for.  I typically have my quiet time around 5:00 am so I'm still on my first cup of coffee and I need a little help, ha!

How to make a mini prayer book.(this tag is a sample with made up names for privacy's sake)


Each pocket of the book has a category and inside that pocket there is a tag with a list of names or issues to pray for. (Color coded 'cause I like the rainbow and full of alliteration 'cause I like that too. )

-Family & Friends

-Country & Coworkers (Government officials & people my husband works with and I volunteer with)

-Missionaries & Military

-Ministries & Media (yes, I pray for the media and people on tv, they need it don't you think?)

-New & Temporary (These are things that someone just mentioned to me like a surgery or a job interview)




Faith art journal and prayer bookThe gorgeous charms and tassel are by @mommymuddling on Instagram


I have this in a little pocket at the back of my art/faith journal* so I can just pull it out and pray over the names on that day's tag.  I'm trying to be more organized with my prayer life and I think this little book is going to help a lot. 

One of my friends on Instagram (@cranlan) suggested that it would make a lovely gift for a friend, and I agree.  I also think it would be fun to use for scripture memory.  You could hide the scripture in the pocket and only peek when you needed a hint.


*You can see more about this journal on my Instagram feed.  I have lots of videos and how-to's there that include it.)


Mother's Day Junk Journal

  Faith Art Journaling, in a vintage Junk Journal


I made a vintage style junk journal for my mom for Mother's Day.  I found this awesome book at the thrift store and I've already bought another copy on Amazon to make one for myself.  I haven't read the book, I just love the title and think it's so perfect for faith-based junk journal.  Don't you?

Well that's all for now, I hope you're having a wonderful week my friend!

Peace & Grace,

An alternative to Tea Dyeing Paper, New Printables and a Bible Journaling Download

Free printable bible journaling index cards from Melissa at Pink Paper Peppermints!



Color Dyeing instead of Tea Dyeing


Did you see this week's {mini-make monday} tutorial video on Instagram?  I had so much fun playing with"color dyeing" some index cards and notebook paper for my bible journaling.  I kinda of just made up "color dyeing" it's my answer to the browness of tea dying.

I love the way tea dyed paper feels and sounds all crinkly but I'm not a big fan of the brown so I started wondering if I could use my spray inks to get the same effect, but with color!

It actually worked really well and I loved the results so much I made them into printables for the shop!  There's a free sample set of cards at then end of this post if you'd like to see what they look like when printed.  (There will also be an additional exclusive free printable in the newsletter going out later today!)

Here's the video:

Tips on Color Dyeing Paper


A tutorial on a colorful form of "tea dyeing" index cards! Neat!
Stack of yummy, crinkly, color-dyed index cards


The process is pretty simple as you'll see in the video.  Here are a couple of tips:


-You'll get different results from wet paper, damp paper and dry paper so experiment with all three to see which you like.

-I tried spraying and dropping the ink on and it made pretty shapes both ways. 

-I also sprinkled water over the ink in some instances and there were more pretty variations that way.

-I used Heidi Swapp's color shine sprays (possibly because I couldn't find my Delusions sprays in the mess that is my art room right now *cough*) and they have the prettiest shine to them.  I'm going to try my Delusions Sprays next (when I find them, ha!)

-The notebook paper has a much more satisfying crinkle than the index cards, but the color on the index cards was much more vibrant.

-I tried printer paper and it didn't have as nice a result, not sure why?

-My husband says to remind you that paper ignites at 450 degrees, so um, be careful and bake your paper at your own risk. *LOL*

  Color dyed index cards for tip-ins in my art journal!  Fun tutorial with a freebie too!

So shiny!


I'd love to see your experiments if you try this, and if you're not into baking paper, you could always get the printables in the shop instead!



This Week in the Shop

Printable mixed-media bible journaling cards!

This week's new set of Bible Journaling cards in the shop are the result of my color dyeing experiment over the weekend.

I'm calling them Color Notes and this set is the first of a series.  It's titled, "His Goodness".

I wanted to design a set of cards that we could use to remind ourselves of who we are in Christ, so the scriptures on the cards are written in the first person.

Bible Journaling and Instagram

How has your 2017 been shaping up?  It's been a pretty busy year here, and I haven't had as much time for the blog as I usually do.  I have been having fun posting on instagram (@pinkpaperpeppermints), although it's been a little too busy for even that these last few weeks.

I don't know about you, but the spring time for our family brings an enormous amount of activities, events and birthdays, not to mention finishing up our homeschool year and it keeps us running!  I'm looking forward to summer and having a lot more bible journaling and art journaling time.
