Free Printables: Speak, O Lord

Rachelle Adams || Free Printables: Speak, O Lord Lyrics

One of the most powerful songs we sing at church is Speak, O Lord by Keith Getty. The lyrics read as a prayer to the Lord, asking Him to speak to us through His Word.

Sometimes, I enjoy lifting up these words to the Lord as I sit down to read my Bible, and, often, the song is playing in my head. I thought it could be nice to have a printout of the lyrics tucked in my Bible, because I don’t have all of the words memorized. Since I was creating a printable for myself, I thought I would share with you!

I created these as 5x7s so they would fit inside most Bibles. Thank you, Rita, for sharing the digital paper I used as the backgrounds. (Links to the specific papers are at the end of the post.)

I printed mine on card stock, which should hold up well. I may laminate it, since I’m always looking for a reason to use my laminator! Enjoy!

Silhouette Weekly Shape Challenge: Banners

The Silhouette Weekly Shape Challenge this week was a great shape that contained six different banners (what a great deal for 99 cents!). I decided to accept the challenge, and I’m glad I did. It pushed me to make more creative Mother’s Day cards than I had in my mind originally, and I learned how to use sketch pens. Thanks for the challenge, Silhouette team!


I made six of these, with a variety of background papers. It doesn’t show up well in the photo, but I added twine to the banner, which gave the card a little texture. To add a little dimension, I used foam adhesive circles to adhere the banner to the card.

The Silhouette SD in Action

Several people have asked about my Silhouette, so I thought I’d post a little video of it in action. Yes, that’s hammering in the background. Our friend Doug is working on our front door. This is my first video post, so please be gracious! :O)

Flower Headband

I have another sweet girl in my life for whom I wanted to make a gift. Her mom said she likes headbands, so I did a Google search for a simple tutorial. My search led me to Cait’s tutorial over at A Bicycle Built for Two. Her tutorial was very simple, clear, and easy to follow. Again, since her tutorial was so good, I’m only going to post photos of my final product. I hope the recipient loves it as much as I do!
Note: I only did one thing different from the tutorial. Rather than hot gluing everything, I hand sewed it all together. I’m sure the hot glue works great, but I was hoping sewing would make the flower more secure over time.

Pearl and Ribbon Necklaces with Gift Boxes

I have two young ladies in my life to whom I wanted to give gifts. Our budget is a little tight right now, so homemade gifts are perfect. I came across a tutorial for ribbon and pearl necklaces on Pinterest. Stevie at The Moore Babies created a ribbon and pearl necklace for game day. I knew this would be a great gift for both girls. I created one in black and one in blue. As I was perusing Dollar Store Crafts, I found a tutorial for gift boxes using Laughing Cow cheese boxes. I decided to try those for the necklaces. Both tutorials are great, so I’m just going to include some photos of the final products.
Please forgive the poor quality of the photos. I don’t know why I insist on using my point and shoot when we have nice cameras that would do a better job!









The boxes will work fine, but I wasn’t 100% pleased with how they turned out. The person who wrote the tutorial did a much better job!
I am pleased overall with how the necklaces turned out. I think they cost me between $3-4 a piece, which fit our budget nicely.
