getting my september #30lists journal ready

I spent the rainy dreary Saturday morning this weekend camped out in my favorite chair, surrounded by bits and baubles getting my September #30lists journal ready. 

It's one of my favorite things to do: prepping my journals!

Wondering where you can get that uber-cute set of printables? It's a freebie with your 30 Days of Lists registration...and there's even a 30% off coupon code included.


First up, I printed the freebies and trimmed them. I decided to hand trim the phrase banners outside the lines, leaving a smallish white border.

For the journaling card, I used a circle punch and added patterned yardstick inside the outline along with the "this month" phrase banner. I then added washi tape to the outer edge and rounded the corners.

Here's how I used a similar journaling card from the freebies I designed for the March challenge.

I tucked it into the pocket formed from the folded kraft bag which serves as a cover for my mini book.

When I added the phrase banner to my journaling card, I didn't glue it all the way down so I could curl the edge at the end up to give it some texture. You can see from the side view just what I mean.

I have more posts scheduled, sharing how I've set up pages using elements from the embellishment kit, more of the freebie printables and my stash. There's only one of this journal remaining

Mini albums are one of my most favorite things to create and use to document our family's story. You can find them here. These three have embellishment kits that are included to help you decorate your pages, but you can always find more color coordinated Tag + Embellishment Kit Collections in the shop.
