Welcome Dedra!


Please help us welcome Dedra Long as a talented faith-crafting friend! Today she is showcasing a bible page layout she has made using our Faith & Love Bundle. First, here is more about Dedra:

Hi there, my name is Dedra Long and I live in Gilbert, Arizona with my husband and two daughters. I started traditional scrapbooking in 1996 after the birth of our first daughter. Since then I have been on many design teams, had my worked published many times and have met some of the most AMAZING people which have become friends. 

The last couple of years I have been “creatively planning,” (I have had a traditional planner since high school). Now, I like to make my planners not only be functional but beautiful and stylish as well. 
About a year ago I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer (my third type of cancer since the age of 26). This last year has been a journey, filled with ups and downs, medications, fear and all of the emotions in between. Needless to say, I started to dig deeper in my relationship with God. Illustrated Faith inspired me to start the creative journey in my journaling bible. 
I have realized it doesn’t matter if you are a scrapbooker, a planner girl, a journaling bible fanatic, a card maker, pocket page lover and everything in between, you can use all of the same supplies across each creative platform. I will use stamp sets and supplies in my faith planner, then in my journaling bible and beyond.  
Wishing you health and happiness friends!! 

Dedra has not only used our Faith & Love stamp set, but paired it with our Flourish stamp set and our All Year Long stamp set. This layout is fabulous! It just goes to show that you can use any kind of stamp in your bible journaling!

Dedra will be back with us more this month! In the meantime, be sure to follow her blog, Dedra Long Designs, and her beautiful Instagram @dedralong for lots of bible art journaling and planner inspiration!
