The gift to which I am referring is a Gratitude Calendar journal. You know I am a fan of Ali Edwards. She has created the Live Your Gratitude Daily Calendar Overlays a few years back. It has been a well loved digital element in my collection. So here’s what I did::
- In your photo editor, open an 8 ½ x 11 blank document.
- Open the Calendar Overlay-start with January.
- Place the overlay on the blank document about ¼ inch from the top.
- Print out on 65# white or cream cardstock.
|overlay on 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock|
After it has printed, trim about ¼ inch from the bottom of the text.
Then trim the printed overlay in half so that you are left with 2-4 ¼ x 6 ½ inch pages.
Glue these pages into a previously made journal that you made that will be bound with book rings.
Make a very pretty cover…and don’t forget to wrap pretty too!
Throughout this journal in particular, I added some additional digital elements from Ali Edward's collection called Gratitude Quotes. So, not only is this a lovely gift for Christmas, but it would be a wonderful hostess gift for Thanksgiving too.
Thanks for letting me share with you today.
