Gratitude 🙏 Day 6

Welcome!

Today’s post I tried to brighten up the journal cards a little by adding a touch of color using flowers I purchased from Hobby Lobby. I think it softens the cards up a bit. I’m thinking when I post these on Etsy, I may add a candle for a cool effect. Maybe I will try that for my post tomorrow. Let me know what you think!

Until tomorrow…

Gratitude 🙏 Day 5

Happy Friday!

Two more gratitude journal cards to share with you tonight. I’m starting to get the hang of how to measure these so they are straight and centered. Don’t look too closely at the cards at the beginning of the week. 😂

Until tomorrow…

Gratitude 🙏 Day 3

Welcome!

I enjoy making these journal cards. I’m taking quotes from an old gratitude journal and gluing them to 3″ x 4″ card stock pieces. This size is considered a standard journal card. I then round the corners and use distress ink around the edges. By using distress ink, it helps to create a vintage look to the cards.

Until tomorrow…

Gratitude 🙏 Day 2

Welcome!

I hope you are all having a great day! It was sunny and 80 degrees today. I snuck out a few times to enjoy the gorgeous sunshine.

The best part of today is that I was able to visit my cats. We have to board them for the summer while my son is home.

Until tomorrow…

Ephemera 📓 Day 7

Welcome!

Wow! Where did this week go? I’ve been super busy at work and at home over the past several days, so I’m sure that had a lot to do with the week flying by!

My final journal card is created from a 2015 Hallmark datebook I found hidden in the back of a drawer. I love all the cute, simple birds. They remind me of stamped images I could easily use to create a greeting card.

I hope you are enjoying your Sunday! Please tune in tomorrow, as I get back to sharing with you some witty handcrafted greeting cards.

Until tomorrow…

Ephemera 📓 Day 6

Welcome!

Today’s journal cards were made from junk mail I received a few months ago . Normally, I would have thrown it out, but I stuck it in a drawer in hopes I would be able to use it later. I’m glad I did! These photos bring a smile to my face and transport me to a calm and picturesque place.

Until tomorrow….

Ephemera 📓 Day 5

Welcome!

I hope you are having a wonderful day. I’m thrilled it is Friday and what a beautiful day it is outside. Right now it is sunny and 44F.

Today’s journal cards are made up from a magazine page. I just love sunflowers and these cards really captured their beauty. I can’t wait to use them!

Until tomorrow…

Ephemera 📓 Day 4

Welcome!

I’m excited to share with you today’s journal cards. I picked up a few flyers and brochures when we visited the MN State Fair this past summer. The University of MN (my Alma Mater) had an informative display on apple trees. I’m going to use this one as a journal prompt. Change out tree for …. You fill in the blank.

Until tomorrow…
