What are some new things you are hoping to accomplish in 2017?  One of mine is to do some Bible art and so I made a little journal to record some of my favorite Bible verses.

I found these little spiral bound notebooks at the dollar store.  The blue spirals were perfect for this paper collection.  The closure is created with a tag. 

I created a banner and printed directly on it.  I used the ticket die to draw a frame around the words.

There are pockets on the inside of the cover.  I used the Ornate Border die to create the tag on the right.

There are some tab dividers.

More pockets and tags on the inside of the back.

And the back cover.  Here you can see the tag I used to create the closure.

  2. What a beautiful journal for your favorite Bible verses.

  3. Oh Wow, that's a lovely journal....Well Done!

  4. I LOVE THIS NOTEBOOK. My best friend would love for me to make one for her. She takes notes during our Bible study, so this would be perfect for me to make.

  5. Wow, I really like your journal. The colors and patterns are so nice. These would sell well at my church.

  6. Fantastic journal and great papers and colors.

  16. Not only is this beautiful, it is a great idea! I love that you created a journal for your favorite verses. So much nicer than stamping over text in a Bible. Happy New Year!

  17. So beautiful and a wonderful idea! My sister sent me a loose leaf binder filled with reflections from her business newsletter in which she writes about verses in the Bible and how they apply to her own life and that of her business.You have provided me with inspiration to take her idea a step further and decorate it. (I love the contents already, and they no further adornment.)

  18. Love your little journal! So beautifully done! Thanks for sharing!

  19. What a fabulous little notebook makeover! I love the idea of using a tag to make a closure!!

  20. This is stunning!! I think I should do something like this. I'm not comfortable with journaling on my Bible. Also I wanted to keep a few verses written somewhere where I can read it.
