Gratitude Documented Altered Book

Gratitude Documented Altered Book Bible Journaling

Just a few more days and Gratitude Documented will be in full swing! I shared a little sneak peek late last night of the altered book that I have started creating for my daily journey through next month on Instagram! As promised, despite a complete lack of light for decent photos, I’m sharing the intro to my altered book!

Gratitude Documented Altered BookI intend to complete this book as I go, so I only have an intro page and a two page spread for the week one tab thus far! I’m seriously loving the time spent crafting in something out of the ordinary! It’s right up my alley!


I started by cutting about half the pages from the book, so I would have enough room for thirty days of embellishments and Journaling. When the hard work was done, I pulled out the kit and unpackaged the acorn Washi; it was going to cover the spine. It seemed fitting for me to imitate the title and author from the barcode sticker on the Illustrated Faith packaging.

I used a mixture of digital elements from Bella Blvd’s digital shop and from the Gratitude Documented Kit, along with paint splatters and sequins. It was easy as that!




For the beginning of each week, I intend to make a pocket between two pages like this! The pocket holds the assigned card from the kit.

I’m excited to get to pages that have more words, so I can start playing more with punches, ribbon, and ripping out parts of pages to create texture! I’m really looking forward to sharing my process with you guys! And of course, not to forget the Bible Journaling pages to go along!

I hope your having a restful Saturday!

With all Christ’s love,

  1. I love the sewing element you add to your work. I love layers and layers of texture. It’s how I dress also. I’m an accessory girl. Thanks for the inspiration

  2. Very pretty! Can’t wait to see more of this! I wanted to do an altered book for so long but never seem to find one that feels right for it.. Next time I’m at the antiques book store I will have to look for one 🙂

    • Well, I picked up 5 while I was at the thrift store. There was a couple decades old version of wizard of oz with illustrations. I mostly looked for cover colors and page colors, but I couldn’t pass that one up. I’m sure yours would be undoubtably dreamy if you finally take the plunge ❤️
