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!

2017 LDS Primary Theme: Choose the Right (with free printables!)

October 5th, 2016 | Posted by Jolyn in Church | Primary - (Comments Off on 2017 LDS Primary Theme: Choose the Right (with free printables!))

The LDS Primary theme for 2017 is “Choose the Right,” and I’m excited for it! My daughter gets baptized in 2017 and looking forward to her baptism inspired my creativity and concept behind these Primary theme designs. So, even if you don’t work in the Primary organization, many of these designs work great for a baptism too! And if you do work in the Primary, then keep scrolling!

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.

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

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!

Temple Attending and Temple Loving People, Howard W. Hunter (free printable bookmark!)

February 20th, 2016 | Posted by Jolyn in Church | Relief Society | Scriptures & Quotes - (Comments Off on Temple Attending and Temple Loving People, Howard W. Hunter (free printable bookmark!))

Let Us Be a Temple-Attending People (Howard W. Hunter) - free printable bookmark

“Let us be a temple-attending and a temple-loving people… The temple is a place of beauty, it is a place of revelation, it is a place of peace. It is the house of the Lord.” This year we are studying the teachings of Howard W. Hunter in Relief Society and I love this temple quote that came out of the Howard W. Hunter manual. Because I currently work in the Relief Society, I was able to design a large poster using this quote to hang in our Relief Society room. I then decided to share this design as a matching free printable bookmark. Now we can all benefit!

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!

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

These goal reminder cards are designed in black & white to help save on ink and make it easy to make quick copies. They are put in an 8.5 x 11 size PDF document, with four reminder cards to a page. Print, copy, cut out, and use!

Simplify, Dieter F. Uchtdorf (free printable!)

October 7th, 2015 | Posted by Jolyn in Church | Scriptures & Quotes - (Comments Off on Simplify, Dieter F. Uchtdorf (free printable!))

Simplify, Dieter F. Uchtdorf - free printable!“Living the Gospel doesn’t need to be complicated… Step back, look at your life from a higher plane, and simplify your approach to discipleship.” President Uchtdorf’s talk at this last October 2015 LDS General Conference made so much sense to me! And I loved this quote from it. It reminded me of a newly-baptized convert I once knew who wanted to know why church members complained about the gospel being so complicated and hard to live – didn’t they know that it was the gospel and a knowledge of a loving God that made life easy and worth living! Listening to President Uchtdorf’s talk was a good reminder to me to allow the gospel to simply work in my life. Actually, I loved so many of the talks. But this one is going on my bookshelf. And because I want the share the good things, I am making this quote available to go on your bookshelf too.

The LDS Primary theme for 2015 is “I Know My Savior Lives,” and I have been working hard to get my designs finished! My new designs are available in my Etsy store and I am very excited about them.

I Know My Savior Lives

It includes the printable theme poster in all sizes (including large format sizes), as well as printable round & square tile sheets (1×1 squares, 1-inch circles, and 2-inch circles), and a matching bookmark. And, as mentioned, all of these designs come in ALL four color options.
