Mini Gratitude Journals


Let me start with a warning that this post will include LOTS of pictures. I recently came across an excellent video tutorial for a mini scrapbook and wanted to have a go but as scrapbooking just isn't my thing I've turned mine into a gratitude journal. The idea is that you can feel a lot happier just by taking the time to realise how blessed you are. I made two mini journals using three different digi scrap kits from The Sweet Shoppe. I changed the measurements from those in the tutorial but kept the same make up and beaded ribbon binding. Each page consists of a pocket with a journaling tag for making your lists. I've decorated them all differently and added a corresponding Bible verse. I'm really quite pleased with how they turned out. So onto the photos. TFL and enjoy the rest of the weekend.

These are so beautiful! I'd like to know what font is the journaling created with or is it part of a kit?

Jo said...

Julie... you never cease to amaze me with your beautiful work!

I came across the mini album you created... got the video, but stuck for the labels.. I love the whole thing and really think I need to make one for myself...

Can you please tell me where the labels came from? did you make your own? xxx

Absolutely beautiful. Love the design and the whole idea of a gratitude journal/book idea. I am still trying to get my mind around how you bound the pages but can work something out even if not the same as you have done. Thanks heaps for the inspiration. I have a few special friends who I would love to make this for.
