Scripture Mastery and GAK Margin Tags TutorialPosted by MeckMom on Dec 6, 2007 in Popular Posts: LDS | 12 comments
As I mentioned previously, my Scripture Mastery memory is a little shaky. I created these simple margin stickers to help me locate those key scriptures quickly. The bright blue box on the top of the sticker makes it easy to flip through my quad and spot the scritpture I’m looking for. Each tag includes the blue SM box, the approved scripture key words, and the full scripture reference.
The directions for placing your Scripture Mastery Tags are pretty simple. Essentially you need to print out the file on the premium transparent sticker paper. Crop the tags and sort them into piles by book (OT, NT, BOM, D&C). Find your desired scripture reference and place the sticker in the upper right-hand margin. In my scriptures, I used a blue colored pencil to add a square around the corresponding verse numbers as well. You can find the free file below.
The Gospel Art Kit tags serve a similar purpose. Essentially, I created them to help me use my GAK stickers more efficiently. Although I could find the scripture stories quickly by using my footnote GAK stickers, I wanted to be able to locate the actual passages of scripture that associated with each without skimming the entire page. These skinny GAK title tags are designed to fit neatly in the bottom margin of any standard scriptures. They include the title of the picture, the GAK number, and the full series of references for the story. I used a green pencil to mark the selected verses by drawing a green line next to the center line on the page (click here to see a close up of my markings). I created two versions of these tags. The first was designed to be used with the full-size GAK stickers (the stickers that are centered over the main text of the page). The text on those is centered. The second file was designed to be used with the footnote-size GAK stickers. The text on those is either right or left aligned depending on which side of the page your GAK sticker should be placed on. You can find both those files below.
The last file I’ll be posting is a simple instruction file. Many of you have mentioned that you’re making these as gifts and would like to have a small instruction guide to include with the stickers. I designed the instructions to be small enough to fit in any size plastic zip-top bag (available in the MeckMom store). On the file there are two instructions for the GAK stickers and two instructions for the bookplate/bookmark stickers. You can find that file below.
Many of you have also emailed with questions concerning knowing how many sheets of transparent sticker paper to buy. Below you’ll find a page breakdown for the various sticker sizes and styles to help you out.
