using journaling cards in your memory keeping projects

This journaling card set can take on so many personalities just by switching up the embellishments you decide to use. And even if you only use the cards and die cuts that are included, you'll be set for all the seasons and even be ready to welcome in 2018.
3x4 Journaling Cards 
By purchasing the instant download file for these journaling cards, you can print the file as many times and as often as you like! I printed several sheets to have plenty of cards to decorate cards and have ready to go when I've got a few moments to create.

For the Hello Winter card, I punched the journaling spot with a 1" circle punch, which gave me slight colored border. I then punched a 1.25" circle from textured cardstock to layer beneath it, using a foam dot to add it to my 3x4 journaling card.

newest additions to my home | list 9

This time of year, the newest additions to my home are almost always pillows. Something about cooler temps and changing colors me me want to up the coziness factor of our home with plush down filled pillows. I have a collection of zippered pillow covers in different sizes and store them in a bin during the off seasons.

By investing in down pillows, I can change the look of our home by just changing the covers and only having to store just the flat covers, not a ton of pillows. My favorite places are TJ Maxx and Tuesday Morning for affordable down filled pillows and covers. I have been know to purchase clearance pillows for in hideous designs for a few dollars just to get the down insert and end up donating the pillow cover!

I embellished my page with goodies that were included in the embellishment pack that came with this mini album. This one is sold out, but you can find similar journals in the shop. Each kit had a different playing card, mine had a 9, so it was perfect for list number 9 don't you think? The glitter striped die cut punch was also included and I attached it to the side of my page as sort of file tab.

Here's a close-up so you can see the yummy glittery feel of the paper.

And to add a little bit of fun, I added another scallop die cut to the reverse side.

I often use the offcuts from trimming my travelers notebook inserts as embellishments on my mini book pages. I'm not one to waste pretty paper, that's for sure. The color of my scrap matched the page plus it allowed me to add some orange to this side of the spread to coordinate with the peachy orange on the right side.

As much as I love using my letter stickers as part of my title, I do adore using my handwriting as well. It's party of me and my story and I think it should be included. I know that some people are not fans of their own handwriting, but I don't let that stop me.

A friend on social media posted about a fabric sale on flannel at JoAnn's a few weeks back and, you guessed it, I hopped in my car and drove to Knoxville to take advantage of the sale. I have enough of the plaid flannel to made another smaller pillow.

fall break adventures

#corn #maze #maple #lane

Our Fall Break adventures are over and just need to be documented so that we always remember. Before I get to that, though, I need to print photos. That's always the part that holds me back.

Now all I have to do is get these stories recorded so we don't forget! 

How I Crush My To Do List

Are you a list maker? Do you journal your lists as a creative outlet? Do you use a planner? I'm a combination of all three. And I'll admit, I often have to move items on my to do list forward several times before I can actually mark it as done.

Now on to lists 18 - 21 of the September 2017 #30lists challenge. Why don't you join us in December for the next class? {affiliate link} It's a great way to get a little snippet of your life recorded and documented. Not just for you, but for future generations.

List 18 | When I Want to Quit
Sometimes...I just do. I'm old enough now to know that there are times when it's the best answer.

List 19 | Places I Visited This Year
Other than our ordinary, everyday adventures, the only place we headed to was Florida for our summer vacay. We don't vacation every year, but when we do it's very likely it's going to be on a beach somewhere.

List 23 | Word I Would Like To Use More Often

Yes. When an idea or adventure or plan is presented to me, instead of thinking of ways it can't or won't work, or how we don't have time, or that it's too expensive...I just wan to think yes. YES. And make it happen.

I'm such a practical person, a rule follower, an obedient person {most of the time} and I'd like to be more carefree, wild, and spontaneous. Putting myself into a yes mindset is my little way of doing that.

What word would you like to use more often?
