The 10 Best Bible Journaling Deals for Black Friday
Be sure to follow our Facebook page! That’s where we’ll post the latest deals – including the limited time deals.
#1 & 4 Bible Journaling Deals on Supplies
To get the best deals on Bible journaling supplies you want to shop with coupons. All of the local retail craft stores will have coupons and sales ranging from 40-70% off.
DaySpring 30% off: Dayspring is launching their Black Friday sale early this year. Shop their entire line including their Illustrated Faith line. Use code: FRIDAY18 to get 30% off through 11/25 (Excludes Willow Tree and Illustrating Bible).
Michaels 30% off: Michaels will have 30% off including sales items on Thursday and 25% off on Friday. You can get your coupon or save gas and shop online here.
Load up that Bible journaler’s stocking with craft supplies like glue sticks, scissors, stickers, and more. Craft supplies always make my list. Here are my favorite brands:
- Stickers and Washi tape came in at number two. Who doesn’t like washi tape? Illustrated Faith as a wonderful line of faith-based washi tape here.
- Pens and Pencils – Illustrated Faith Precision pens, Microns, and Faber Castell Pitt pens are my favorites! I’m slowly building my collection
- Stamps – faith-based stamps used to be hard to find. Hobby Lobby has them, but you’ll find more selection online these days. Some of the brands that I use include:
- Gesso – Dina Wakely or Art Basics Clear Gesso
Here are a few How-to Bible Journaling books you might want to check out:
- The Complete Guide to Bible Journaling – You can watch my review here.
- The Art of Bible Journaling-You can watch my review here.
- Faith Journaling
#2 Illustrating Bible
The best discount on the Illustrating Bible is likely your local Christian retailer. DaySpring will have the most inventory, but their discount codes exclude the Illustrating Bible. Use code: FRIDAY18 to get 30% off at Dayspring through 11/25, but sadly it doesn’t include the Illustrating Bible.
#3 Die Cutting Machine Deals
I own both the Brother Scan and Cut and the Silhouette Cameo 3. I love having the ability to scan a pdf into the Brother Scan and Cut machine and have it cut out the stickers, but sadly after having it for a whole year I still use the Cameo 3 20 times more. I love the Silhouette Cameo 3. My first Silhouette was purchased in May 23, 2012, for $270. It still works great, but I wanted the extra blade and wireless functionality of the Cameo 3 so I use that machine all the time. If you’re curious about how to print and cut, check out this blog post. If I were buying one this year, here’s what I recommend:
- Silhouette Cameo 3 – I love mine! You can buy it here http://amzn.to/2zN4C6for you can buy it directly from the manufacturer here. They had an amazing Black Friday sale last year and I expect them to have another great one this year as well.
- Silhouette Portrait – The Silhouette Portrait is limited to cutting 8″x12″ http://amzn.to/2yOARyu
- Brother Scan and Cut (not design and cut) http://amzn.to/2ipz3Ws
- Cricut Explore Air™ 2 machine – http://amzn.to/2yRCxY9
If you don’t want to shop Amazon, it’s likely that Michaels will have die cutting machines at around $199.
#5 Other Journaling Bibles
My favorite place to purchase Bibles is Christianbook.com. Their prices are always less than Amazon unless Amazon decides to run a book promotion. We’ll post that to our Facebook Page if/when it becomes active.
#6 More Time
I save so much time by employing automation to help me around the house. I love my InstaPot pressure cooker, crock pot, and vacuums that do the work for me. I always recommend that people try to find more time by employing tools that save you time.
If you’re looking to give your Bible journaler a little more time, here’s a few low or zero costs items that you might consider:
- Precook meals
- Take care of the kiddos
- Do some of the Christmas shopping
- Take over the Christmas cards
- Grab takeout
- Clean the house
- Order the gifts online with wrapping, and have them sent directly where they need to go
- Make or buy the cookies or treats
- Remind her that she has to take something off her to-do list before she can add a new to-do
- Volunteer to set up for the Christmas tea and help clean up too
#7 Money for Others
I love Bible journalers! They’re always thinking of others. Some Bible journalers would love a donation in their name to a worthy cause. Others would love to have money to take their family on a special outing. If money isn’t something you like to give, how about gift cards?
Gift cards are so easy to buy, and they’re perfect for the person that’s hard to buy for. Here are the gift cards I recommend for Bible journalers.
- Amazon – http://amzn.to/2zKnkve
- Hobby Lobby – www.hobbylobby.com
- Lifeway or other Christian Bookstore
- Dollar Tree
- Mastercard, Visa, or Discover gift cards (purchase fee applies) – http://amzn.to/2zKnXVC
The entire poll is here if you’d like to see all of the results:

My favorite things to receive are gifts made by the grand kids or gift cards so I can get what I want or need. At my age, there’s not a lot of my list – I’m cleaning out .
I am, excited to be amounts a group of people who love the lord.
Fabulous information. Thanks!
Love this idea! The other day my hubby asked what I wanted and the first thing I thought of was the Illustrated Bible!

I am hoping to get some Gelatos, and other supplies. Thank you for doing this Tracie!
I have joined a few Bible Journaling groups but haven’t done much yet, to be honest! Then a sister in Christ in my local community sent me a “hello” on Facebook, which has brought me here! She said she saw me in the Bible Journaling group and that we had a few friends in common. This touched my heart! So here I am to comment and learn about your community. Thank you for this giveaway!!
Thank you for these!
I pray that everyone may have a wonderful time in the Lord this week. Thank you for this post. Blessings

I would love the illustrating bible, but I would rather be able to have more time to be in God’s word.
I enjoy following your posts. Thanks for sharing .
Adding washi tape to my wishlist .
As a mom of young kiddos, I love the suggestion for giving the gift of time.
The Illustrating Bible and neocolor 2 crayons are on my Christmas wish list this year.
Awesome. Thanks Tracie.
Great ideas & suggestions. Stamps, stickers, & washi are on my list as I’m not gifted artistically. I do want to learn more about watercolors & gelato.
These are great ideas!! Thanks for sharing. I actually got the Illustrating Bible by IF on sale at Lifeway for 50% for Black Friday. I was SO happy!!! Good things comes to those who wait…..(patiently for sales/deals)! Lol.

Thank you for the great giveaway and starting this blog!
Thank you for taking the time to teach us about Bible journaling keep up the good work.
I’d love more Faber castell pens and markers, they’re my favorite.
My wish list for this year is to schedule time to develop a deeper relationship with God. Bible journaling helps me to interact in an intentional way and I would really like to become skilled in hand lettering.
I love being part of this community ❤️
Merry Christmas Tracie and everyone! I really don’t have any bible journaling supply on my list this year.
Love the free printables!
Tracie you are awesome! I have learned so much about Bible Journaling with your help. I just love watching everything you do. God bless you and your family.
Thank you for everything you do!
I’ve only very recently discovered Bible journaling so I really appreciate this post! Thanks for all the good ideas and links to buy goodies, and for the giveaway as well!
Thank you for the ideas!
I would love to get a Cricut or Silhouette machine for Christmas this year!
So much fun. I love this ministry. <3
Thank you for all the information! I have a Cricut Air and will be taking a class or two on it.
I would love a scan and cut or an Interleaved Bible, but am happy with any crafting supplies.
I have acquired so many supplies this year! One thing I don’t have that I would love to is the Pitt Pen. 🙂
Stickers and washi are always on my list! So easy to use 🙂
I look forward to learning from the site how to better journal and spend more time in the Word,
You are the best teacher! Looked at so many others and then I found you. Took the free course and no question about being a part of Momentum. I have truly grown in faith and creativity these past years and know it is in large part, because of you. Thank you for letting me know about events, activities, and bless you for your sharing and giving heart.
Wonderful ideas. My biggest wish is for a “she-shed” where I can spread out and be more creative with my Bible Journaling.
Thank you – I bought lots of Bible Journalling supplies in the Black Friday sales ❤️
I love a good deal. My favorite is FREE shipping.
I of course took advantage of the sales and bought another Bible and more washi! Thank you, Tracie for all you do for us in the Momentum group. Your hard work and dedication is much appreciated.
Love all you kits and videos and how faithful you are to your ministry. <3
Thanks for the ideas
really encouraging to have this kind of site for Bible-lovers and journaling-junkies like me 🙂
Momentum and Bible Journaling and Ms. Tracie are all very awesome!
Clear acrylic stamps is probably on the top of my list, but any supplies will be nice!
Thanks for all you do for bible journaling.
Thank You for the giveaway.
Thank you so much for the ideas!
I love your devotionals and the printables. You are so inspirational to me and encourage me to try things. I’m not sure which journaling Bible I would want. All I know is I want wide margins!! I am very new to Bible journaling and I love all of your ideas and printables/kits. Have a very Merry Christmas, and may God bless you immeasurably in the coming year.
I love Momentum and Tracie is awesome,
A gift card so I can go shopping when I want something new!
I Love the kits and print outs..I would love gelatos!
Traci, I love your Momentum kits! I have quite the Traveler’s NB going with them! I would LOVE the new spiral-bound Ilustrating Bible, but it’s out-of-stock everywhere! So, keeping an eye out for it! Thank you!
I love this group and page. I’m learning so much. Thank you.
Would love to have a die cutting machine.
My go-to wish items are stickers and die cuts since I’m still technically at the beginner level 🙂
Love the ideas! I always search and need art supplies! I am addicted! Currently I want a Silloutte and a Cuttlebug. Those are my next “want” items.
I absolutely love, love, and love #6 this is so needed and I would love to receive this for Christmas. Thanks so much for the ideas, suggestions and great giveaway.
Thanks for the great ideas!

Thank you for all the fantastic ideas!!
Thank you. I have integrated this into my Children church on Sunday’s. I love this it gives my a better understanding of the bible.
Hi Tracie, Thanks for a great year of Bible Journaling. I am currently purging a lot of my supplies as we will be moving in 6 months (from Oregon to Arizona). Hope I can generously give it all away. Take care and God bless, Bo
I am happiest just to receive anything , great or small ,that is given in genuine love.
I am hoping for the IF journaling Bible!!!
How amazing! Thank you Tracie
Thanks for all the great ideas and information. I’m new to Bible journaling, so this was very helpful
Any gift is a blessing! Thanks for your love & creativity for us to enjoy!
I would love the Illustrating Bible.
I could really use some gesso to dip my toes into a more artsy type of Bible journaling. So far I’ve been staying safe with stickers, washi tape, and colored pencils. 🙂
Dies cutting machine is something I want this Christmas
