Hello there!

We are so excited to welcome our July 2022 Guest Designer to our blog.   She is an amazing designer who shares her Faith through paper and  embellishments.   Let's give Jessica Nicolas a warm welcome to our blog and Design Team for this month.

Hi darlings! I’m so excited to be guest designing for the month of July. I am a Dominican-American who is a wife and mom of three. I love to read, craft, bible journal and document our family adventures


We ask Jessica a few questions that will get to know her better:

Q&A with Jessica

  • When did you start journaling?

 Started bible journaling 5 years ago after finding out I could combine my love of crafting with my passion for the Word of God. It has become a way to use my creative side to document what I study.


  • What is something most people would not know about you?

 My favorite job was being a gift wrapper at Macys. The Christmas season was the best and it’s how I know almost every Christmas song by heart.


  • What are the 3 scrapbooking products you can’t live without?

 Stamps, Tim Holtz Distress Oxides and all the alphas!


  • What do you love about the July kit- FLEA MARKET FINDINGS v2?

 The variety in the die cuts is definitely my favorite. So many pieces to layer and tuck that I know will really make my projects pop!


  • Finish this sentence “If you could see my scrapbooking space now . . . “You’d wonder how many stamps and inks a girl needs! Haha”

Bible Journaling Inspiration w/ Flea Market Findings 2


Hi darlings! I’m so excited to join the Citrus Twist team as a Guest Designer for the month of July. Here is how my first project in my bible turned out:


I’m starting off the month using the Flea Market Findings 2 kit in my bible. I love using different products to journal my faith, and paper products like this July kit makes it so easy. In this project I mainly used the die cuts, a journaling card and the enamel dots to compliment.

First I shifted through the paper packs and die cuts and after falling in love with the bird and florals I chose pieces that would coordinate. Then I arranged these on my bible page to get a feel for where these pieces would go.


 I knew I wanted a card to add some journaling so I went through the 3x4 cards that would fit perfectly in my margin and decided on the “recorded” one. I then layered over and under the card with a pink doily and other die cuts in various pinks and mints. After writing my reflection on the reading I added a yellow and pink label to stamp my date.


Luke 12:22-38 speaks about not worrying about tomorrow because the Lord will care and provide. So I thought the sentiment “every day has it’s own story” was fitting. I used the puffy words “you are so important” to symbolize God’s care.


For the top of my page I usually add a tab and the green label die cut was perfect for that. I also used the “So Loved” ticket to serve as a title for my page, then sprinkled some enamel dots to finish it off.
