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
