Prayer Journal


I really enjoy making journals and I have a new prayer journal to share with you.  I named her "Grace" and I really enjoyed making her.  The cover is made using a 9" x 12" clasp envelope, it has 78+ pages, counting fronts and backs of pages and not counting doilies, bags, or anything else but full pages.  Her measurements, after adding two signatures, are 9" x approx 5 1/2."

Front cover

The two signatures were hand-sewn to the cover using waxed linen thread and the envelope used was reinforced with Tyvek (as I do with all my envelope journals) to give it added strength.  I also machine stitched around the border of the envelope.

Back cover

After assembly, I added the lace you see around the top, bottom, and spine of the cover. More lace, along with fibers, ribbon, and butterflies or flowers were added to the journal pages, tags, pockets, etc. 

Side closure with lace

I used the "September Chic" digital kit from NectarsCreations on Etsy to make this journal. Click here.

I also used some "prayer journaling cards" from TsunamiRose on Etsy. Click here.

This journal has already sold.


Thank you for stopping by!  God bless your day!

  1. This is so lovely! You continue to create beautiful journals! I'm off to watch your video!

  2. I always watch videos first but tonight I didn't and I should have! This journal is filled with love and encouragement. All the scriptures and added details took a lot of time and love to pull together and whoever purchased this will feel the love every time they open it. What a treasure trove of God''s promises! As prayers and scripture are added by the recipient, this journal will be something precious to hand down to a daughter or sister. It is so beautiful and done with the attention to detail you show in all you do. What a blessing!


Your comments are always appreciated! Thank you for taking the time to bless me with them.
