Jennifer Crowder: Bible JournalingJournaling is one of those things that changes for me every time I sit down to do it. It's different from planning for several reasons; I don't have a set system, I don't do it every day and it seems to come from a different place in my mind and soul. It's more of a creative outlet for me and I love that I can sit down with the Spice Market Bible Journaling Kit and sit with God and my thoughts. As a bonus, I usually reach for my coordinating Cocoa Daisy kits to add just a bit more to my spreads.
I love when the Cocoa Daisy kits come with a Mildliner like this one from the Afternoon Tea Planner Add-on Kit! They work so well in all of my Bibles; they don't bleed through the thin pages and are bright enough to draw attention to key verses but mild enough that they don't take away from the pages and stickers. Speaking of Mildlinders, have you checked out the latest EXCLUSIVE Cocoa Daisy Custom Mildliner set? They make a great addition for when you need a more neutral color palette.
The Spice Market Planner Dashboard Kit is a perfect companion kit for journaling! For this spread, I taped the personal size dashboard to the top of the page with some washi tape.
Save your ribbon paper clips and bow clips! They are absolutely perfect for marking your current journaling spot or favorite scripture pages.
Natasha Pytlik: Journaling in Creative Meditation Journal
I love using my Cocoa Daisy kits in my morning creative meditation journal. During the work week, I typically do not have an extended amount of time to get creative, but with the Cocoa Daisy Sticker Kits, I can make a significant impact in a short amount of time. During the week, I use the Spice Market Memory Keeping Sticker Kit along with the Spice Market Daisy Add-On Sticker Kit to embellish my pages along with my journaling and mantra for the day. On the weekends, when I have more time during my morning creative meditation practice, I will go back to my journal pages and add some stamping details.
To add whimsy, I also used a floral leaf element from the Dandelion Wishes Stamp Set, available in the Cocoa Daisy Store. When I have journal spreads with lots of colors, I always like to add some more black and white details to my pages for balance. If your time is limited like mine, consider breaking up the creative portion of your journaling into more than one session.
I hope seeing a bit about how I approach my journaling helps you reframe your thinking to challenge the thought of not having enough time in the morning to add to a journal.
Karma Isis-Clark: Journaling for Memory KeepingI got my start in the planning world through journaling. My first Hobonichi was an A6 English format planner and from there I was hooked. I now plan daily in a Hobonichi cousin and Hobonichi weeks, but I never lost my love and hobby for journaling. I still journal regularly in an adorable little A6 blank notebook.
