Since becoming a new mom my bible study routine has fallen apart, to say the least.  So I'm trying to find new ways to strengthen my spiritual relationship.

One of my spiritual goals is to have a pure heart. I was inspired by my reading of Matthew 5:8 ESV says “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God."

Of course, after reading Matthews as a new Christian I began to search the bible. I had to know how I could make my heart pure.
How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to your word. With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments! I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you. - Psalm 119:9-11 ESV
Memorizing scriptures is a great way to keep the Lord's word close to your heart. Living according to the word is easier to do when you remember the word.

Create a goal. Be realistic of course. There is nothing worse than setting an unreachable goal to only give up halfway through.

I personally have a few different methods I use to memorize scripture.

If you are like me and still need a daily reminder that you can carry with you. Then order your Who God says I am scripture card set, 24 cards set with affirmation, scriptures, and prayers.

5 ways to Memorize Bible Verses

  1. Write it out. The Standards Method
  2. Pray it.
  3. Read it.
  4. Use the verse to create a phone or desktop wallpaper.
  5. Chose short verses, to begin with.

Write it

I write the verse on a chalkboard in my office. That way every day I go to work I recite it.

I also will write the verse in my faith journal. I have a section where I write the verse I want to memorize. Something about writing it down helps me to remember.

After COVID hit I made psalm my memory verse.  
Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place— the Most High, who is my refuge— no evil shall be allowed to befall you, no plague come near your tent. Psalm 91: 9-10

Pray it

I have covered our home in prayer repeatedly reciting that verse while my husband went out every day during the pandemic working to provide for our family as an essential employee.

Use the verse you are trying to remember as a prayer. Recite it.

Read it

I also started putting my scripture cards on my desk. I also keep an encouraging verse on my stand. During those difficult moments during the workday or just those quiet moments.

I read that scripture to myself.

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11

I don’t think there is one sure-to-work method when it comes to memorizing scripture you have to try different things to figure out what works for you.

When I first started trying to memorize scripture I would write it on my hand. But my husband was concerned it isn’t good for you.

If you look down my timeline on Instagram you’ll notice I had verses written on my hand.

Bonus tip I've found an effective way to memorizing scriptures is by creating phone wallpaper. This method is how I memorized Luke 1:27. If you want to that wallpaper for yourself download my Faith Kit now!

How to Cut Cardstock with Silhouette Portrait - Studio Vlog #2

July 23, 2021

When I was researching uses for the Silhouette Portrait 3 I could not find much content about cutting cardstock. In my search I quickly found out Silhouette Cameo is equipped to cut cardstock. 

But I was not ready to spend that type of money on a cutting machine when I was not even sure it would serve its purpose. 

I decided to give the Silhouette Portrait a try, based on the few tutorials I found on cardstock. Electronic cutters are definitely great options for intricate and detailed projects.

Bible verse cards are my most popular product, cutting them does not take a lot of detail work but it is time-consuming to cut them by hand with the paper guillotine. Additionally cutting by hand is less precise and doesn't provide uniform results like the Silhouette Portrait. 

How to Cut Cardstock with Silhouette Portrait

The Silhouette Portrait requires you to utilize their software to identify where the machine will need to cut. I suggest adding registration marks to help the machine identify the cut area.

Silhouette Studio is easy to use and most of all it is free. You can design within the studio or import your design which is what I typically do.

However, I have had a few issues with my cutting machine. Lighting is important when using your cutting machine, dim lighting can lead to your Silhouette Portrait cutting machine failing to read the registration marks. You can remedy this by purchasing a desk light. 

Here is the list of supplies you will need to cut cardstock on the Silhouette Portrait electronic cutter.  

Cutting Cardstock with Silhouette Portrait Supplies

  • Portrait Cutting Machine - easy to use the cutting machine and great bundle with all you need to get started
  • HP Laptop - you will need a laptop to design and send cardstock to the electronic cutting machine
  • Desk light  - key to getting your machine to read registration marks every time
  • Cutting mats - inexpensive cutting mats, thicker than the Silhouette brand. Great for cutting cardstock. 

Step by Step on How to Cut Cardstock with Silhouette Portrait

  1. Import or create your design in Silhouette Studio.
  2. Add your cut areas and create your Page Setup.
  3. Once complete, print your design on desired cardstock.
  4. Stick your printed cardstock design onto your Silhouette Portrait cutting matt.
  5. With your design open in Silhouette Studio, go to the "Send" tab.
  6. Ensure to select cardstock - there are several cardstock paper options.
  7. Initially, send your design using the preset auto blade setting for your desired cardstock. 
    • If the setting doesn't properly cut your item. Try increasing the force by 2-3. 
    • If it still is not properly cut try increasing the blade setting by 1-2.
    • If it still is not properly cut increase the number of passes.

How to pack orders for Etsy - Studio Vlog #1

July 09, 2021

My first studio vlog has been a long time coming. I loved editing this video and seeing my growth even in just a few months.

Since the conception of Chellbee there has always been freebies and a shop. My shop originally featured planning printables including my popular wedding planner printable. 

Later I added journals and devotionals. I have always loved stationery, I believe writing and journaling are therapeutic. 

With your support and visits to Chellbee.com I was able to invest in my stationery business to create and offer products to help you in your spiritual journey. From bible verse cards to stickers to greeting cards to journals. 

It is such a blessing to have the opportunity to be a part of your spiritual journey. I pray whatever you order or read brings you closer to the Lord. 


How to pack orders for Etsy

As a small business owner packaging is really important it is the first impression you make on your customer. You want to give them a memorable experience in hopes that they will shop with you again.

There are a lot of different packing order options for Etsy and small business owners. There are a variety of packaging supply options eco-friendly, custom with branding, or do it yourself.

Wherever choice you make just get started. When it came to packaging for my shop I did a lot of research to try to determine the different types of packaging options available because I was not familiar with shipping supplies.

The most popular mailer options

  1. Poly mailers - ideal for clothing
  2. Bubble mailers - ideal for beauty, jewelry, etc. 
  3. Rigid mailers - ideal for stickers, cards, etc. 
  4. Envelopes - ideal for stickers and greeting cards
  5. Shipping boxes - ideal for stationery, food, etc.

You will need to consider the method by which you are shipping your packages as well. My shop utilizes USPS First Class it is inexpensive and a great option if your products are under 16 oz. 

I personally utilize Etsy shipping, I am able to ship right from my home which is great. Shipping from home is really easy with Etsy. 

USPS also has a ship from home option that I use for my website. In order to ship from home you will be needing a postal scale they are inexpensive you can find them on Amazon for under $30. 

Shipping Method

  • Etsy Shipping - a great option if you have an Etsy shop that offers discounted shipping.
  • USPS Click N Ship - a great way to ship from home and skip the postal service lines.
  • Ship Station - this is a better option if you have shops on several websites there is a monthly fee.
  • Pirate shipping - offer to ship for several different shop platforms, they claim there is no monthly fee. 

    My shop is at the beginning stage. I had to invest heavily in supplies to create products. Therefore custom packaging is not a priority at this point. 

    You can still give your customers a great experience and brand your packages. By utilizing stickers you can place your logo on your products as well as your shipping supplies. 

    When you are deciding on packaging for your Etsy orders be sure to consider how to best protect your products. It is not helpful to have cute packaging if your items arrive damaged. 

    You will also need to consider including do not bend or fragile stickers if you have items that can easily be damaged but can't be mailed in rigid mailers.

    Etsy packaging supplies

    • Sticker Paper - you can create logo stickers and even do no bend stickers if needed
    • Large bubble mailer - I use bubble mailers to protect my products because my cardholders do not fit in rigid mailers. 
    • Small bubble mailer - you may need a variety of mailer sizes depending on the products you offer. 
    • Rigid mailer - great if you are shipping flat items.
    • Tissue paper - I wrap all my products I think it is a nice presentation and makes the customer feel like they are receiving a gift.
