Faith Collection: My Bible Book Junk Journal

December Caravan
Hello friends! Happy Saturday! I am so excited to share with y'all one of the precious new junk journals that was listed (and has already sold) in the shop: My Bible Book Junk Journal! 
December Caravan
 This gorgeous and encouraging Bible Verse/illustrated faith junk journal was definitely one of my favorites to create and I was so happy to see it go to a happy home! 
December Caravan
This beautiful and sweet My Bible Book Junk Journal was a Bible Lover's dream. With approximately 100 pages of quality (heavy) and beautiful scrapbook paper, countless adorable vintage and modern ephemera and tags, vintage children book pages, vintage sweetly tattered book and music and map pages, ribbon (both vintage and bespoke modern pieces from around the world) and pretty surprises, this Junk Journal will create a treasured keepsake for a lifetime and can be used throughout this beautiful summer season and year.

This junk journal was created from the vintage Children's Book "My Bible Book" by Janie Walker which was in excellent condition. The book is truly vintage as it was published by Rand McNally in the late 1950s. This book is delightfully illustrated in full color and aims to teach young children about basic Christian beliefs as outlined in the Bible. Several of these pages from the book (including the cover) have been included and used in special ways.

The sweetest lady purchased this book and wrote the most lovely note along with it. I am constantly amazed (especially in light of all that is going on in our world) at the way kindness can truly touch our hearts even through strangers.
December Caravan
Thank you again Brandy for your prayers and sweet note- you truly touched my heart!
December Caravan
loved these colors y'all! Aren't they gorgeous?? 
December Caravan
The combinations of the soft pinks, greens, and the baby blue tones made my heart smile!
December Caravan 
This junk journal was approximately 5x5 in size and had 3 signatures and was a delightfully chunky at approximately 3 inches wide at binding.
December Caravan
Each book that I create I walk away from loving... I think as an artist you pour your heart into each of your creations and I hope and pray that each of these junk journals become heirloom pieces for you and your loved ones. 
December Caravan
That is why the details of each book take so much time to create and bring together. I love the final products and love that y'all do too!
December Caravan

Happy Thursday friends!

Past Amazon Creative Business Finds
June 4, 2020
For the shop I use so many different types of scissors, but one of my favorites is the Fiskars Heavy Duty Scissors that I use to make all of the Junk Journal Covers. They are incredible! If you are needing to cut through heavy materials for your craft projects than definitely check these out! I make tons of junk journals a week and these last me a good 4 months. There are different sizes but my favorite is the larger size. You can find them HERE!
Another item that I use a lot is a paper cutter. Y'all I can't believe that I am going to say this, but when I first opened the shop in 2013 I actually didn't use a paper cutter and did it all by hand. I think I felt like it kept the "authenticity" of the product, but then the shop grew and I discovered this paper cutter... and have never looked back. If you are looking for a great paper cutter try this one. You can find this item HERE!

And then I discovered...

Thanks so much for reading today friends! I hope that you enjoy this new weekly series! I can't wait to share more items and finds over the course of the next months and years! Happy Thursday!

If you are like me then you use Sharpies in so many different ways for different projects and you are always looking to see when they have great deals. This 72 Count package was a great deal for under $50 and can be found HERE!
Looking for a smaller package with some unique colors that were really pretty? Check out this 24 count from Sharpie and it is less than $17! You can find this item HERE!
New to using Sharpie pens and looking to try them out? This is a package that I have used a lot - I love the colors and I have found that on thicker paper these really don't bleed through paper. This 5 count is less than $8 and you can find this item HERE!
Looking for mailing bags that don't tear in the mail? Depending on what you ship these might be a great suggestion for you. I use these bags to mail out a lot of my Ebay items from my Ebay Store (Caravan Sonnet Factory- you can find it HERE) and have found these bags to be great for sending out lightweight items. They are tear proof and hold up really well. They are currently on sale for less than $17 and for 100 bags they are really affordable! You can find this item HERE!
This is a great book for anyone looking to create a business doing what you love. It is a great practical resource and also is filled with wonderful tips and inspiration. It is definitely a book that I refer to a lot in my businesses. For less than $18 this is something that is worth its weight in gold. You can find book HERE!

Thanks so much for reading today friends! I hope that you enjoy this new weekly series! I can't wait to share more items and finds over the course of the next months and years! Happy Thursday!
