Remember that feeling you got when you were a kid and it was time to buy new school supplies? My very favorite thing was getting the brand new box of perfectly sharp crayons. All the colors just made me swoon! That’s exactly how I feel about getting new Bible Journaling supplies. Absolutely giddy. Yes, I know, I am a dork. But I love them so much.
So in the name of spreading giddiness, I thought I would share a few of my favorite supplies. But, before we get started, I do want to address the issue of bleed through. Bible pages are thin (some thinner than others) and if you journal in your Bible, eventually bleed through will happen. Some pens are much better than others, but I advise you to come to peace with the occasional bleed through now and avoid the heartache later. When ever in doubt, test the pen on a page in the back of your Bible.
So, let's get to it! Here are my must have, all time favorite Bible Journaling supplies:
In order to Bible Journal you probably need a Bible. Any Bible will work, but I LOVE Journaling Bibles because of the extra room for notes and art work. You can find them in lots of places but if you aren’t going to buy one from me 🙂 then I highly suggest Christianbook.com. They have a huge variety and usually really good prices.
My favorite Bible is the ESV Large Print Leather Cover Journaling Bible in Mocha. I carry here with Bible tabs already applied, but you can find it other places as well. And, you can always check out the other Journaling Bibles I sell in the shop.
Pens and Pencils
PRISMACOLOR COLORED PENCILS – Y’all. These pencils are the bomb. I adore them. They lay down color like nothing else I have used. And there are sooooo many colors!
We just started selling these in the shop and you can find them here. I love to use them in my coloring Bibles, my Bible Journal and to underline in my Journaling Bible.
PILOT FriXion COLORSTICKS ERASABLE GEL INK STICK PENS, Fine Point -
If you are a gel pen aficionado, these are the pens for you. The are great gel pens and like all FriXion pens they are erasable, too. You can snag some of these pens here.
ZEBRA MILDLINERS –
Were you starting to think this was really just a FriXion ad? Not to worry!
These Zebra Mildliners are fantastic highlighters. They are dual ended – one is like a traditional wide highlighter and the other has a finer point. These are so useful and you can find them here.
I’ve said it before and I will say it again. How did we ever live without washi tape???
Ok, I know this is a lot of washi tape, but I have been collecting it for years. And, yes, I do have a few that don’t fit in the drawer. No judgement please! You can find some cute washi tape here, here, and here.
Sometimes I like to journal more than there is space for in my Bible and that’s why I created this Bible Journal.
It’s a great way to take more notes or have more space to draw and still keep everything in one spot. These are available in my shop here.
Well, that is it for now. I hope you will try out some of these awesome supplies and let me know what you think.
I’d also LOVE to hear from you! Do you have some fave supplies that I need to know about? Leave a comment and let us know! 🙂
