Perpetual Calendar and Card Organizer

 I love making these card organizers. They are simple and always turn out beautiful. It's so fun to use lots of paper too! Who doesn't have a ton of patterned paper sitting in drawers and on shelves. Making these make me feeling like I'm using some of my stash in such a good way!
 I often use the paper that I've picked up from my local craft store at bargain prices. So much fun! I also bought the spiral bindings and chipboard from a manufacturer at bulk prices so I have everything on hand and can just go to town!
Here's what they look like with cards in store. You can track all your birthdays and anniversaries. Then I include two pockets in the back for misc cards; baby, sympathy, graduation, etc. It's always so nice to have extra cards on hand to be able to pop in the mail at a moments notice.

New Prayer Journal with TE stamp

 I made this journal last night and used my Taylored Expressions stamp for the first time! Man, it works awesome for embossing!

This paper is My Minds Eye Bloom and Grow. So beautiful. The flowers and borders were from their accessory sheet, so they are punch outs ~ so easy to use.

Super excited how beautiful this turned out. If' I had more paper I'd probably make another one just for the fun of it. ;)

I wanted to share another awesome tool that our family has recently discovered. This little book, Big Truths for Little Kids, takes kids thru the Catechism. We have done this together as a family for the last two nights and already it's so fun and amazing what the kiddo's know and listening to their answers and praying together. I love it, so I just wanted to put this little blurb out there for ya! ;) I'd definitely recommend it!
