Thanksgiving Grateful Cards – free printable

November 7th, 2016 | Posted by Jolyn in Home & Family Life - (Comments Off on Thanksgiving Grateful Cards – free printable)

With Thanksgiving coming up, our family needed a little extra something to get us thinking in the season. Last year I got a large paper roll and covered the inside of our front door with paper. Each time we thought of something we were grateful for, we wrote it on the paper. By Thanksgiving, we had a whole door-ful of things we were thankful for. This year I modified the idea and made up Thanksgiving grateful cards. Every time we think of something we are grateful for, we write it on a card and drop it in the vase.

We plan to fill up the vase by Thanksgiving, and then read them all out loud around the Thanksgiving table. It has been a fun way to get my kids thinking because, hey, there are so many things to be thankful for!

He Is Risen - free Easter printable bookmarkEvery year for Easter, my kids get a new book in their baskets, along with a few other fun summer items. This year I decided to design a bookmark to go along with their new books. I kept it spiritually themed — He Is Risen! — to help offset everything else in their baskets revolving around eggs, bunnies, and chocolate! (Not that I have anything against eggs, bunnies, or chocolate!)

He Is Risen - free Easter printable bookmarkI designed the bookmarks in four different colors (I have four different kids, after all!), and the fun, springy, Easter colors make me happy!

Ordinary People, Extraordinary Results – David A. Bednar quote (free printable!)

March 17th, 2016 | Posted by Jolyn in Church | Relief Society | Scriptures & Quotes - (Comments Off on Ordinary People, Extraordinary Results – David A. Bednar quote (free printable!))

Ordinary people who... do simple things that are right before God will bring forth Extraordinary Results (David A. Bednar) - free printable JPEG

We just pulled off our Relief Society birthday dinner this last week. Our theme for the night was “Being Extraordinary,” and we loved this quote from Elder David A. Bednar: “Ordinary people who faithfully, diligently, and consistently do simple things that are right before God will bring forth extraordinary results.” We wanted to provide each of the women there with a notebook — somewhere to record and write down the simple, extraordinary things in their everyday lives. I designed and printed the cover for the notebooks, using this quote from Elder Bednar, and after we got them all put together, they turned out so darn cute!

Because we prepared a dinner program that revolved around each of the past General Relief Society presidents, we decided to decorate with colors and themes that represented the old and the new: deep reds, creams, lace, ornamental accents. I designed the cover of this notebook with that in mind. I used small 3.25″ x 4.5″ notebooks, printed off my design, and then glued them onto the cover of the notebooks using Super 77 spray glue.

Whenever I use spray glue, I always spend several minutes pressing the paper down firmly and evenly, which in my case includes using an old, clean paint roller.

After they were glued down, I took some scissors and trimmed around the edges. Voila! Finished and ready to give out!

LDS Baptism Memory Book – Printable 8.5 x 11 Pages

February 16th, 2016 | Posted by Jolyn in Church | Home & Family Life | Primary - (Comments Off on LDS Baptism Memory Book – Printable 8.5 x 11 Pages)

When my daughter was baptized a few months ago, I looked at every baptism memory book available in stores. Every single one. And for one reason or another, none of them seemed to fit what my daughter and I were looking for. That was, of course, when I buckled down and started designing!

LDS Baptism Memory Book - Printable 8.5x11 Pages

I loved the idea that we could customize our own baptism memory book. We could choose the pages that we wanted, we could choose a color to fit my daughter’s personality (in her case, teal!), and we could save money by printing ourselves. We filled it with only pages we needed, and we filled it with only memories and photos that she wanted. And it made an awesome memory book for her to record her baptism memories! Since we placed the printed pages in a simple 3-ring binder, there is now room left for her to add other handouts, thoughts, or scriptures that she wants to save from Primary or Activity Days. It has become a truly personalized baptism book – just for her.

Because these baptism memory book printable pages proved very successful for us, I added them to my Etsy shop! And yes, I added a few extra color options – just in case your child’s favorite color isn’t teal! These PDF printable pages are available in four different colors (purchase once and receive all four color options). Then print as many of each page as you need and fill it in with the memories and photos you want. Place the printed pages in a 8.5″ x 11″ binder or album, or have them spiral bound into a book at your favorite copy shop.

These PDF printable Baptism Memory Books include a title/picture page, pages for journaling and recording special facts about the baptism, pages for thoughts, memories and testimonies, informational pages on the baptismal covenant and the fourth article of faith, a guest sign-in page, and blank pages (use for placing extra photos of the special day, attach the baptism program, record extra thoughts or feelings, or attach special notes or cards from family and friends). Print the pages you need, add the memories you want, and Voila! – a personalized baptism memory book.

As in years past, I designed some Primary reminder cards/stickers for the new year featuring the 2016 Primary theme, “I know the scriptures are true.”

Primary Reminder Stickers 2016 (I Know the Scriptures are True)

These cards/stickers can be handed out to Primary children as a helpful reminder that they have been assigned to give a future talk, scripture, prayer, or article of faith in Primary. And because I received several requests last year for a reminder card that had a “theme” category instead of the “article of faith” category, I went ahead and designed two different versions this year – a card with categories for prayer, scripture, talk, and article of faith, and a second version with categories for prayer, scripture, talk, and theme. Choose which version works best for you!

Primary Reminder Stickers 2016 (I Know the Scriptures are True)

This free download is a 8.5 x 11 PDF file, with 10 cards/stickers per sheet. Two different colors are included on the page. It can be printed up and used as either Primary reminder cards (just print and cut out), or as Primary reminder stickers (sized to be printed directly onto 2 x 4 shipping label sheets). If printing onto shipping labels, be sure the “scale” is sized to 100% when printing — otherwise, they will just not fit on the label sheets correctly!

Printable Goal Reminder Cards (Personal Progress, Faith In God, Cub Scouts)

Recently I was approached about designing some Personal Progress goal reminder cards. I immediately thought, “Why haven’t I thought of this before?” The Young Women will often work on a Personal Progress requirement on mutual night, but then they need to finish the project at home. (And often, the girls forget about it!) These goal reminder cards are the perfect way to send an actual reminder home with them!

I have worked in various church organizations and something like this would have really come in handy – on more than one occasion! So I decided to design not just Personal Progress goal reminder cards, but reminder cards for the Faith In God and Cub Scout requirements too. So for all of you who work with Young Women, Activity Days, or Cub Scouts, feel free to print, use, and share!

Fill-in Dinner Menu (free 8 x 10 printable!)

September 18th, 2015 | Posted by Jolyn in Home & Family Life - (Comments Off on Fill-in Dinner Menu (free 8 x 10 printable!))

Dinner Menu 8x10 Printable

What’s for dinner? If you are like me, then you don’t know yet! I am horrible at keeping up with dinner, and I usually don’t start thinking about dinner until around 5:00… which is around the time I start feeling hungry! Of course, that means that dinner is usually not anything that takes more than 20 minutes to prepare (not that there is anything wrong with that!) However, I have had intentions for awhile of trying to prepare a few more thought-out, healthy meals for my family.

Therefore, in an effort to reform my bad dinner preparation habits, I designed an 8 x 10 dinner menu to keep in my kitchen. And just in case I’m not the only one that struggles with dinner, I felt I needed to share it!

You can print it, frame it, and use a dry-erase marker to write on the glass. Or, you can laminate it, throw some sticky magnet strips on the back, put it up on your fridge, and use a dry-erase marker to write on it. Either way works!

So, here goes – six different color options, with the option of downloading either an 8 x 10 JPEG image or an 8 x 10 PDF (for ease in printing, the PDF file has an 8 x 10 menu design put on an 8.5 x 11 size page.)
