Pocket Encouragement Book

My friend Abby recently sent me a sweet little pocket booklet full of inspirational quotes and Scriptures.

I LOVED it and decided to make up a few of my own to send to friends on the card ministry list who experienced tragic losses in the past year.

I started with a 12 x 6 inch piece of double sided card stock and folded it in the center.

I folded in each side 2 3/4 inches and cut the top at an angle to form a pocket.

I created some lady silhouettes in my photo editing program and added free verses from Word art Wednesday to them. (free template below)

I filled the pockets with Scriptures, Songs, and Inspirational quotes from these sources:
Free printables from:

Using the Trust in the Lord stamp (Stamplorations) and Black Soot Distress Ink (Ranger) I added a verse to the cover. A few tiny punched hearts and twine tie complete this fun little pocket book.

If you'd like these with the verses layered on them - visit my Scripture Freebie Page and click the coordinating link.
You can also access these via a pdf file that my friend Abby generously created for me.

Your book is just lovely Esther. I love that you turned a gift I blessed you with, into a blessing for others. I'm excited about the ladies you made as a freebie and look forward to using them. Thanks so much for sharing how you made the book, and links to my page and others. You've made my heart happy. ~ Abby
