Write it Down! Printable Journal Cards

14 Mar

After coming up with this title, I feel like I should make one more card with the Write It Down caption ‘cuz I kind of like it…

Anyway…here is what I have to share with all of you lovely party people today!

I am a big proponent of memory keeping and journaling…

Although I wish I was better at keeping up with it…

I am constantly buying my kids diaries, scrapbooks, Smash books, etc…

I think it helps teenage angst to get it out and down onto paper…

So I created a set of journal cards for all of us to use…

I think having a writing prompt can make it a little easier to get the thoughts flowing…

And I tried to make them pretty simple so they’d be easy to complete…

My Favorite Things…

TLOTP-FavoriteThingsJournal

Important!

TLOTP-ImportantJournal

Remember…

TLOTP-RememberJournal

You can also get the pdf which has all three on a single page 🙂

I’d love to have my kids complete the Favorite Things card on a regular basis to see how they change…

Might make for a fun trip down memory lane later in their lives…

If you use them I’d appreciate hearing about it!

Now go get writing!

Enjoy the Party!

The Luck of the Irish

10 Mar

First things first…

My daughter’s cheer team did awesome yesterday! She cheers on two different teams and both of them placed FIRST yesterday! And one of the teams also won Grand Champs which means they had the highest score of every team across all ages in their skill level!

Super proud of her and all the hard work she puts into cheering! And everything else that she does for that matter!

And somehow in between the 2 hour drive each way, along with cheering her on, I was able to get a few pictures of my latest St. Patrick’s Day goodies…

An assortment of treats all dressed up and ready to party!

I used the same basic premise for both, but decided to take the cupcake idea one step further with some candy as well…

I added a scalloped circle base (cut using one of my Spellbinders dies) to hold everything together (I didn’t want the candy falling through the bottom of the liners!)

No, I didn’t have time to actually make the cupcakes too…Thank you Stop & Shop!

A pot of gold…

Filled with Rolos!

The same label I use for my Hershey Kiss treats, also fits on Rolos perfectly!

What I used to create them…

First I designed the striped paper…I cut the wrappers out from this paper using my Lifestyle Crafts Scalloped Cupcake Liner Die…

Then I created the chevron background and went on to design the toppers…I made them square because I wasn’t sure what size/shape I wanted to cut them out in…So now they can be used like I did or they could put cut into squares for labels or tags…

The Hershey Kiss labels were next…

Once I had the paper stuff printed and put together, it was time to fancify…

Ribbon, buttons, and rhinestones do the trick…
