I'm so excited to launch my new Saint Scripts Series of Cathletics Craft Kits! I have been wanting to create a comprehensive Saints kit for a while...one that would inspire kids to research their favorite saints.
The biggest thing holding me back was that I didn't have my own set of saint images and I didn't want to just cut and paste images from online or scan prayer cards...although that's an option for people using these craft kits. Blank templates are included for complete customization...free reign to cut and paste classic images or draw your own.
I'm thrilled to announce that this project was another collaborative effort with my daughter Kelly! You might recognize her style from her awesome cartoon drawings from our book Hand in Hand with Jesus or if you've seen Our Family in Cartoon.
It has been a pleasure to work with Kelly on these Saint Scripts Cathletics Craft Kits! I supplied her with classic images of the Saints and she sketched them in her Kelly Comics style. I then scanned her drawings and traced them in the computer, adding a few little details and color. I love how they turned out!
I planned on creating one Saint Scripts Cathletics Craft Kit with profiles and pics of 20 Saints...but we just couldn't stop! We have 42 Saints so far!
Does anyone else think of Lisa Hendey when they see Kelly's drawing of St Gianna?
