My Gratitude Journal


2020 is the Year of Gratitude for me! I've decided to be grateful for each and every thing I can. Today, over on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog, I'm highlighting the first pages to my gratitude journal. 



These pages highlight a trip I made recently to visit my bestie in Washington DC and in Bethany Beach DE.  We had such a great time. The paper is from G45; the rest of the supplies are listed below.

Thank you for stopping by!

Craftily yours,  Karen

New Planner Ideas

Today, there's a special event happening on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.  It's all about NEW Year, New Planner Ideas!

My 2020 word of the year is GRATITUDE.  What a great word!  My  plan is to do a page per week of someone, somewhere or something for which I'm grateful.  If I'm having a sad day, I can use my gratitude planner to remind myself of good things :)  Here is my contribution to the ECD blog.  It's my January dashboard page:


Isn't it pretty!? (Even if I do say so myself!)  The paper is from an older Graphic 45 Collection.  Here's a close up of that amazing tag and the fun new letters from Elizabeth Craft Designs:


The supplies I used from Elizabeth Craft Designs are listed below.  Thank you so much for stopping by today.

My last #DecemberDBD for 2019

I'm so proud of myself for finishing my #DecemberDBD with Elizabeth Craft Designs, and I'm sad that it's over.  (So I'm hoping to do a page a week in 2020 for FuN!)  Here's days 26 to 30.  I'd done Dec 31 earlier...lol - why do them in order!!


Details and all the pics of the "backside" of the pages can be found on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog today!

New Years December DBD

The design team members for Elizabeth Craft Designsare working hard on last-minute holiday crafts and crafts for New Years. I decided to create a page for New Years for #DecemberDBD.


I have been loving creating the #DecemberDBD pages. For this one, I used the Planner Pocket 2 and Planner Essentials 1 and 4 dies along with the A Field of Flowers stamps.  (I did some masking to create the scene that is shown.) The "Count Your Blessings" sentiment is from the Family set. The reinforcements I used are found in the Planner Essentials 11 set.

The tags were fun to make and to think about. I just typed them on my computer. One will be for pictures, and the other two will be to set some goals for the New Year!

The supplies I used from Elizabeth Craft Designs are below. The paper is from G45 and Tim. Thank you for stopping by!

Craftily yours,

Karen
