Birthday Card Organizer

Ooohhh so pretty! I just love this new stamp set! Elementary Elegance available January 24th with Stampin' Up!'s Sale-A-Bration! You can earn it for FREE with a $50 order! This stamp coordinates with the Curly Label punch, one of my favorites! ;)

Birthday card organizers are one of my favorite things to make! They are super easy, and make such great gifts, and are one of my best sellers on Etsy too! Again, I used the Night and Day paper pack (it's discontinued so I'm trying to use up my stash! And making these organizers are also a great way to do that!) Plus black and white color schemes are always fashionable.

A couple years back I acquired this calendar pdf template online. I've used it over and over again! It's great!

Here you can see how great these look with cards inside. Such a simple and easy way to stay organized. And when you see that perfect card for someone you can just grab it, put it in your organizer and you're ready when their birthday rolls around!

Prayer Journal Gifts

I always enjoy making these journals. They are quick, easy and always look great! This one was made with the now discontinued, Night and Day paper.

I generally add 3 sections in my journals. I used the round tap punch to make the labels. Works perfect everytime!

Also for this one I used the polka dotted acetate pages that are included in the Night and Day paper pack. So fun to have the clear dividers! You could write a special scripture or quote on the first page so you could always see it behind the acetate. ;)

The beautiful scripture stamp is from Clear Dollar Stamps. And the cute little cross is from Making Memories.

A few tips for making great journals is to always use a heavy chipboard for both your front and back covers. This increases their usability and durability so much! I also use my bind it all to add the spiral binding. I am considering changing to the Cinch. I know there are some real debates about which one is better. But I really think they both have some pros and cons. ;) Maybe I'll do my own product comparison one of these days. ;)

Hope you have a blessed day! Only 20 more till Christmas day! ;)
