I have had a few questions about what I use when working in my scripture journal. This is a compilation of a few different posts. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. There is no right or wrong way to create a scripture journal, mine might be to overwhelming or not enough. Create and write in a way that best fits your learning.
I use XL moleskin notebooks (amazon link). I like the paper surface and the construction of the notebook makes it easy to insert additional papers. The elastic closure and soft cover are perfect for when my scripture journal is bulging, which is always. My journals get abused, tossed in and out of things, spilled on, cut up and colored on my little hands, and anything else you can imagine. They have held up really well.
My fluff tower contains:
1. My colored pencils and pen drawers. I use both when I am studying as I get different hues, strengths, widths, and marking techniques that help me remember. I realize that I'm dealing with a wide range of color shades, but each color is unique and offers a different feeling or mood.
My favorite scripture pens are Staedlter Triplus Poruous Point Pens.
2. A little drawer of fluff: rub-ons, tabs, labels, post-its, etc. They are tiny bits that I occasionally (I rarely add anything, but sometimes I remember) add to help illustrate a point or create a visual reminder of what I am learning.
3. More fluff: TAPES. Love paper tapes. I dug out some old paper tapes from long ago, I think they are from Heidi Swapp and love that little bit of zing in such a functional use. The scissors and glue can be found in this drawer as well, unless one of the children has taken it and not returned it. The glue pen is perfect for adding things into the seams of the pages. Love that!
4. Stamps and stamping ink. This drawer is no longer in existence. It was a good thought, but it just didn't work for me. I found I would draw titles, etc rather than stamp them. Still it might work for you. That drawer is now filled with more tapes... I might have a problem with the tapes.
I don't necessarily use this brand, I found a generic brand at my local office supply store. The key here is to get shipping labels rather than sticker paper. In the cost comparison shipping labels are significantly less expensive than sticker paper sheets. The nice salesman made the suggestion to me as I was shopping. As I compared both papers and there was a little smoother finish on the sticker paper, but I didn't feel like it was worth the added money.
