My Gratitude Journal

January 20, 2020

Karen here today from Craftily Yours! In 2020, my “word of the year” is Gratitude. Life is SO much better that way, don’t you think? I am going to attempt to create at least one page per week about things for which I’m grateful. If I can do it, I’ll have an amazing treasure at the end of the year! And something to remind me of the good things when I have a sad day.

December Day-By-Day Page Ideas!

November 28, 2019

It’s Esther here. December 1st is just a few days away, which means it’s almost time to start your daily #DecemberDBD journaling! (You can learn more about the December Day-By-Day Challenge here.)

Today, I’m here to share some ideas and tips for your #DecemberDBD journal. I recommend trying to add pictures to your pages each day –– from “normal” things like doing the dishes or groceries, and a full/empty fridge. It really doesn’t matter what you take pictures of –– everything you do on a single day is fine. It’s more about documenting each day, whether it’s work, sports, watching tv, cooking diner, babysitting, laundry, etc.

If you find yourself lacking inspiration on a certain day, here’s a list of some themes/ideas that might help:

  • Photo of your craft desk/room
  • Buy yourself a treat/something you really like to eat and try to make a stunning picture of it to use in your journal
  • Your favorite (Christmas) song
  • Decorating your tree
  • A black & white picture
  • Write a letter to Santa and hide it in your journal
  • Take pictures of December decorations in your area, or go to a garden centre or decorated shop to take pictures.
  • Wrapping presents
  • Create a tag
  • Your favorite (feel-good) movie
  • A selfie
  • Your pets or birds and other animals in the garden
  • Donate $5 to charity
  • Your favorite Facebook group 😉
  • Christmas cards you are sending and/or receiving
  • Your front door or house
  • A recipe
  • Hot chocolate or a good cup of tea/coffee
  • Your dream house
  • Shopping list
  • Children/Grandchildren
  • Family tradition(s)
  • PJ’s all day –– staycation
  • Cleaning a closet or a room
  • The sky/the weather today
  • The kitchen
  • Work moment
  • What makes you happy?
  • Make a page with paint or watercolor
  • News: What’s happening right now –– local or worldwide
  • New Years wishes

If you are planning to journal through the full month of December (1–31st) to review the past year, you can also add things like: the best thing that happened last year, the saddest thing that happened last year, milestones, etc. 

For our Dutch members there is also Sinterklaas on December 5th –– a great subject for your December-Day-By-Day journal/ planner!

I hope this helps give you a little bit of inspiration as we get ready to document our December! Don’t forget to join us on the ECD Planner Page on Facebook to see other crafters’ planner pages, and to share pictures of your own!

Happy Planning!

Everyday Life Planner

October 2, 2019

Good morning Crafters, today it is Luciana here, with a new planner spread. I love using the planning system to keep memories and picture and little pieces of my everyday life.

Step 1. create a background page. Use some watercolor as base, and the stamps from the set Pure Spring and the set Patterns 2. Create a texture on the page using the die from the set Planner Patterns and some stripes of washi tapes. Add the hole reinforcers from the set Planner Essentials – 7.

Step 2. Stamp on the White Soft Finish Cardstock the 3 labels from the set Retro Labels, then the sentiments “hello everyday life” from the set Retro Labels Sayings and “for the record” from the set Family. In the empty label I added the name of the baby.

Step 3. Add some embellishments.
Die cut from the White Soft Finish Cardstock:
2 set of Garden Notes – Frosty Fern
2 set of Garden Notes – Eucalyptus Frosty Fern
2 set of labels from the set Planner Essentials – 11

Thank you for stopping by.
Happy planning!
Luciana
