#9 Best Bible Journaling Gifts – Die Cutting Machine
I have a Brother Scan and Cut on my list this year. Mostly because I’m crazy busy and think that having the ability to scan a pdf into the machine and have it cut out the stickers will save me time. Don’t get me wrong; I love my Silhouette Cameo. I’ve had it since May 23, 2012, and it’s worked like a champ since day one. I’ve owned many Cricut machines, but Provo Craft was a bit behind the digital game when I switched to the Silhouette years ago. My Silhouette was $270 back in the day, and now you can get a better one for about $230. Here’s what I recommend:
- Silhouette Cameo 3 – This one is two generations after mine. I love mine, but this one is better! http://amzn.to/2zN4C6f
- 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
#7 A Partner
Who wouldn’t want to Bible journal with a friend? If you have a friend that’s into Bible journaling, ask her over for some fellowship. You’ll build your relationship while building your knowledge and growing closer to God. It’s a win-win-win! If you’re having a hard time finding a partner, please consider joining our Bible journaling for Beginners community. It’s like having your own family of Bible journalers who are passionate about God!
#6 Best Bible Journaling Gifts – Bible Journaling How-to Books
Bible journaling in its present form hasn’t been around for very long even though note-taking in the Bible has been around for decades. There’s something amazing when your right and left brain work in harmony to bring the story to life, and you finally make sense of it all. Bible journaling helps you remember the lessons, the stories, and verses and makes it easy to explain it to all ages. But, you must start at the beginning if you want to do it and not “ruin” your Bible. I put “ruin” in quotes because I don’t think you can ruin the Bible if you’re using it for what it’s intended to be used for — to build your knowledge of the Word, grow your relationship with God, and spread the good news.
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, 3, 5, & 8 Best Bible Journaling Gifts – Bible Journal Supplies
Bible journaling supplies make the perfect gift. Let’s face it, supplies are expensive. A good pen set can set you back $7 for one or two pens! Supplies made it to my list this year too. I’d like a big bottle of Matte Medium to last the entire year. It would be great in my stocking (hint to my husband). 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 – I remember when faith-based stamps were hard to find. Now they’re starting to arrive at stores like Joann and Michaels. Hobby Lobby has carried them forever, but the selection keeps getting better and better. Some of the brands that I use include:
- Gesso – Dina Wakely or Art Basics Clear Gesso
#1 More Time to Bible Journal
More time to Bible journal is the leader of the best Bible journaling gifts according to a poll from our Facebook group of over 12,000 members. That makes a lot of sense. We are all busy, especially during the last quarter of the year. If you’re in retail or you deliver packages, it’s even worse. Not only do you have the stress of making end of year numbers, but you also have frantic shoppers, and packages to deliver. Of course, if you work in corporate, you’re busy too with year-end activities, planning, and hopefully a Christmas party or two. For moms like me, we’re attending school functions almost every week, and if we’re lucky, we may even bake a few goodies. But, truth be told, I’ll probably stop the by the bakery on my way to the cookie exchange. And no…I won’t tear off the label and pretend they’re mine. I’ll wear my “I cheated” shirt proudly because I’d rather be a little shamed than miss the gathering altogether.
If you’re looking to give your Bible journaler a little more time, here’s a few items that you might consider:
- Offer to take care of the kids for a few hours
- Do some or all of the Christmas shopping
- Put the labels on the Christmas cards, or better yet order them because she hasn’t yet
- Grab takeout
- Clean the house, hire someone to help, or tell her it looks just fine
- Order the gifts online with wrapping, and have them sent directly where they need to go
- Make or buy the cookies
- 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
The entire poll is here if you’d like to see all of the results:

My favorite is the list of things to give the Bible Journaler more time! Being retired, I have plenty of time, but these are great ideas for friends and family who have families, jobs, etc.
Since I am fairly new to Bible Journaling, my wish list is HUGE! I was hesitant at first, but I did fall in love with the right/left brain working together ???? in the Word!
Love all these ideas!
Gift cards for Hobby Lobby, Illustrated Faith – or actually – any of the suppliers 🙂 If we can have more, could really use printer ink for my Momentum print-outs 🙂

Thanks for the giveaway offer! That’s awesome!

I would like the 84 pk of Faber Castel Pitt Artist Brush Pens, the Prisma Premier Colored Pencils Portrait (skin tones, and a quality set of water colors. My supply list would be complete after this.
A partner to journal with would be great.
I’m starting a Bible Journaling Group in January and would love some “how-to” books to share with my group! Bible journaling has strengthened my faith and drawn me deeper into the Word and I can’t wait to share this with a group of women.
I am hoping for a Cricuit or Silhouette this year to cut out all my stickers. I use tons of stickers and washi. I love to Bible journal and love the Illustrated Faith stuff and books that are about Bible journaling.
So many but would love gelato’s and watercolors. I love your site and videos. Thank you so much.
I’m asking for supplies this Christmas as well!! I want a bigger Derwent inktense set! They are one of my favorite supplies!

I want a Silhouette Cameo 3, I am a single mom and I live with my parents so I wont get it, but its wht I want.
I have stamps on my list. I am not very artistic so I love using stamps. Thanks for the chance!
Stamps !!! I love using stamps in my bible journaling. I am a single mom of 2 boys 1 girl. ( been a single mom for 16 years now) so budget is the key. But nonetheless it’s my wish getting cute stamps.
I just love alphabet stickers! Because I use them in most entries, I am constantly looking to replenish my supply. :o)
A solo eye Cameo would make my year!!
These books are so awesome they are definitely on my Christmas Wish List along with online courses. I also have the new Inspire Praise Bible on my Wish List as well.
Thanks for posting the reviews – I wondered what these books were like and love seeing the contents with ideas about how to use them. So helpful and informative!

What inspired you to start this ministry?
Hi Judy. This was a calling from the Holy Spirit. Thank you for asking!
I’d so love a new printer!! … or two … I’d also love a Canon Selphy!!!
I would love gift cards and devotion plus money to use towards momentum subscription would be awesome. I am on a disability income and I just can’t seem to fit everything into the budget.????????
Love this post. Gives me some great ideas of what to ask for Christmas! 🙂
I have tons of supplies but one thing that would really help would be to have Photoshop or something similar to aid with printing out just the things I want to use and not everything else on the page.
Hello Tracie, seeing that I am new at bible journaling I would love a good set of colored pencils, maybe a set of 150 with all different colors.
Oh Boy! This is so nice and exciting!
I would love more art supplies–the permanent inks and pastels would be an great addition to my current supplies. I wouldn’t mind a travelers journal either. I see them quite a bit lately and think it would be fun to cover a specific topic in one journal.
I am fairly new th Bible Journaling and have a huge wish list, and am having trouble listing them in a priority order. I think I will place a set of Gelatos and a set of Acrylics at the top
Top of my Christmas list is the gift of dedication and commitment to my Bible studies and prayers.
The Art Of Bible Journaling
The new soft cover purple Inspire Bible
I would enjoy receiving The Art of Bible Journaling. Above that on my list is carving out more time to do my Bible Journaling. Thanks for all your examples, ideas, and support!
Best bible journaling gifts are, the Bible’s of course, and colored pencils, and stickers, and awesome books like these. My best gift would be to finally find a friend that would enjoy this with me. Got lots of friends but can’t seem to find ladies who want to bible journal. I may just start a group and see what happens:)
Love the books and this site!
