journaling supplies: part 1

I love seeing how other people journal and what supplies they use. It's a great way to get some inspiration for your own journaling. I have been collecting journaling supplies for about three years now.  I get lots of it from thrift stores--yes, its there! You just have to look. My mom buys me stuff here and there, and the rest comes as gifts or when I have some extra money to spend. It takes time to build up art supplies on a budget. I sure didn't get all of my stuff overnight! Hopefully you can get some ideas from what I am sharing here.

 This is my journaling box. I got it at Michael's last year. 
I like to keep my supplies in a box because it's portable.
 My journaling isn't restricted to my desk, 
since all my supplies is contained in one place.

 This is all my supplies packed into my box.

 I made a little pouch for my pens, scissors, and glue stick. 
I love the colored Sharpie pens! Target sells them in 
singles sometimes, and they have good clearances.

 Of course, washi tape. 

 These are post-it notes, tags, and labels. 
I found some of these at the thrift store, 
and the rest came from Barnes and Noble and Target. 

 I love to use journaling cards. They are very bright and cheery! 
Some of these are from Michael's and some are from Target. 
(Target actually sells packages of twenty or so cards for $2.99) 
You can also print your own journaling cards. 
Here is a link to get you started.

 These are my random labels and cards. 
I found that at Michael's on clearance last year. 
They are very useful for card and present making as well. 

Envelopes! I love journaling with envelopes.
 90% of the envelopes you see came from the thrift store. 
The rest I made myself. 

What supplies do you use for your own journaling?
Stay tuned for part 2!


  1. Wow. You're so creative when it comes to journaling. I always want to make my journals pretty, but I can't think of anything. All I do is fill them with words, that's it.
    Even if I had all these supplies I wouldn't know what to do with them and how to get started. Boring me...

  2. oh how fun to see! I love seeing other people's supplies!
