….today let’s talk about the Easter Scripture Countdown kits! We offer 2 different kinds: 1 is a PDF printable.
This kit includes a sheet of numbers 1-12 that are super handy for the countdown. And then, there are 2 scriptures (4×6 each) per 8×10 printable PDF page. All come in black so you can just pop some colored paper, cardstock, or patterned paper into your printer, hit PRINT & voila! You’ve got your countdown to work with! *tip: If you want these to be smaller, simply select a smaller % to print out…experiment: try 75% or 50%!
**Bonus: black PNG files, too! These are offered for anyone that needs to just drag & drop over something…or recolor! Super easy!
and the other is an ABR brush kit.
This kit offers 1 ABR brush file that you can load into Photoshop CS /or newer or Photoshop Elements 5/ or newer. **Great thing about brushes is you can resize them & simply select your desired color & stamp onto a blank canvas for printing, digital scrapbooks, over photos or on blogs. Also comes in black PNG files as mentioned above. Each scripture is included as are all the numbers!
So, I wanted to share some ideas here. These scriptures are all from the Bible & cover Jesus’ last week before He was resurrected. We have done this countdown as a tradition as a family since our oldest was about 1 1/2. We all look forward to it. It just really brings the true meaning of Easter into our home & we love it!
Since our earlier version of this countdown is ‘well loved’ it was time to make a new one! This year, I used the Brush kit & resized them to about 2.5″ x 4″ to fit onto a plain manila tag. I embellished them with the Easter Brushes & printed them on clear sticker paper. I cut them out, stuck them on the tags & then added doilies, flowers, jewels, & some of the Easter papers cut out with a scalloped punch! I chose the manila tags this year so I could hang them on our chalkboard wall dangling from blossom branches!
We start on the Sunday before Easter- Palm Sunday & this is #8. Each day we countdown to Day 1…Easter Sunday. We choose the number coordinating with the scripture, read it together & enjoy the celebRation that takes place in our home as we are thinking about what Christ was doing the last week leading up to His miraculous resurrection.
There are so many different things you can do with this kit!
I love what Heidi did with this project! It’s so creative! Notice all of the fabulous details to really celebRate this countdown! …..printing on the Easter papers, sanding edges, using transparency for the numbers, jewels, butterfies, ribbons, flowers…all in a fantastic frame! Sheer genius…again! Love it, Heidi!
So, here’s to day 3….create your own Easter Scripture Countdown! Try it with your own spin on it…We can’t wait to see your projects! enjoy your process!
