Gratitude Journal | Video

The weather has started to cool  just a bit - and I've started noticing a slight yellowing of some of the leaves in the trees.  There's a hint of fall in the air!  One thing that always seems to strike me as fall approaches, is the need to stop and spend a little more time in gratitude for the things I have in my life.

This small Gratitude Journal, will allow bullet journal style entries, to keep track of daily reasons to be thankful.  Created using Fun Stampers Journey products.

The project I'm sharing today, is a small Gratitude Journal.  I created this using index cards, with the intent of using it similarly to a bullet journal.  Very short, daily, entries - listing out some of the many things I'm thankful for.  I love the concept of a Gratitude Journal, and hope to be able to establish the habit.


As shown in the video, I created the covers for the journal, using a medium weight chipboard that I had.  I tend to hoard things that I think are useful.  I have a drawer full of chipboard, that was left over from packaging, or cast off from other uses.

I wrapped the chipboard in Peaches and Cream Card Stock, and then layered up some of the Good Life Prints.  A couple of banners were added - one with a heat embossed sentiment - stacked in with some die cut leaves. I also added a few Fashion Gold pieces, along with a bow.

The covers along with the index cards, had holes punched in them to fit the rings, using the Press Punch.

This cute little journal would also make a fun gift!   They could be made to give out for a month long gratitude challenge to family and friends - perhaps leading up to Thanksgiving?
