Our new Perfectly Clear Stamps™ Bible Journal and Bible Promises are perfect for working in the new Journaling Bibles that are available.
You can find lots of journaling bibles online, including on Amazon.com, but they’re a bit of an investment, so we decided to practice by making one of our own.
We downloaded the whole King James Bible as a .txt file from this website – Free Bible Download
Then we formatted just the first 130 chapters of the Book of Psalms. We thought you might like to practice along with us.
You can download our formatted pages here. They are designed to print on 8-1/2″ X 11″ paper and the dark lines are intended as cutlines so that you’ll end up with standard 6″ X 9″ journaling bible pages with 2″ margins on the sides for journaling. Psalms.pdf
Fran has made a terrific video showing some fun techniques for working with stamps and inks in your Bible:
And our Design Team had some fun playing with these stamps in our October Catalog:
