1000 Gifts Journaling Book

Today I would like to share with you my #1000 Gifts Journaling Book that I made. This journaling book I use to write every single Gift I receive every day in 2014 so that:

  • I will continue see and remember that God is my shepherd and He provides everything I need (Psalm 23)
  • Knowing that He continually be with me through the dark days and show me the light to follow His path (Psalm 23)
  • That I will dwell in His presence with praise every moment (Psalm 23)
  • My prayer is I ask God to teach me to number our days that I may get a heart of wisdom (Psalm 90:12)

I use this plain black Moleskine journaling book (my husband is a HUGE fan of this brand, he gave me some books to use).


Using Craft Paper Trimmer, I  cut the Skylark paper (X7177B) into 5.5 x 8.25. I used my Xyron  sticker maker to add the adhesive at the back of the paper. Then I added it on the journal cover, pressed gently all over it, then trimmed the extra edges.

After that, I cut the border arrow border arrow trim and added it slightly to the left side. Then I cut the stripe banner from the paper, and added it using 3-D Foam Tape to give some dimension to it.

I decorated it with big Aqua Dots. This is my new favorite too. There are 108 adhesive-backed enamel dots: 7mm, 5mm, 4mm; 3 aqua shades.


At the right bottom corner, I used the left over from the arrow border trim and a short peace of the other side of the paper, and added 2 5mm Aqua Dots.


And I added the name of my journal and the Bible verses using Keyboard Kraft Alphabet. This a handy alphabet stickers you can use for any projects! I finished it with sponged Chocolate Pigment ink from Basics Exclusive Inks™ Mini Pigment Pads Set using Sponge Daubers to give some vintage looking and I used white Signo Uni-Ball gel pen to make the “stitching” looking line 🙂
