The idea of a Prayer or Gratitude Journal has been circulating around for several months, and when I saw that we were going to sell the 5×5 On Board Art Journals in the Spring Mini Catalog, I thought this would make a great Gratitude Journal!  I have taught this in a class and sold many "Class on the Go" kits with supplies for others to make this 20 page journal.

I used many of the supplies found in the Spring Mini Catalog, such as:

  • 5×5 On Board Art Journal, pg 16
  • Round Tab and Spiral punches, pg 17
  • Office Accoutrement set, pg 14
  • Notations papers, pg 15
  • Little Reminders tin, pg 15
  • Petals & Paisleys papers, pg 9

plus a variety of stamp sets in the main catalog.

Here are some ideas for the cover of the journal:

Dsc05605_2 I used an On Board Letter "g" and wrote GRATITUDE with one of our journaling markers on this one.  I like our Anywhere Glue Stick for adhering the cover sheet to the journal, and for adhering the designer paper to the chipboard letter.

Here are some ideas for the inside pages of the Gratitude Journal:

I used SNAIL to adhere all the paper and embellishments to the inside pages.

I hope you feel inspired, and remember to always count your blessings!
