Downloading and Printing Your Journals

December 28, 2021 |

Congratulations, you have purchased a journal or signed up for a free one! Read on to find out how to use your download. In this post, the examples you will see are from my Winter Joy journal. When you get a journal, you will see your download links at the bottom of your purchase confirmation, like in the image below. Most Memorable Journals have more than one file per journal set. You will see three files with clickable blue links in the Winter Joy journal as pictured in the example below. One file consists of the cover and pattern pages. In the second file, you will find fun journaling pages. The last one is for journal cards for you to cut up. Now you are ready to download your journal! Once you click on the links, you should see your files wherever your downloads typically show up. The PDFs you…    read more 

Gifts for the USA National Parks Fan!

November 24, 2021 |

There is no need to be stumped when looking for the perfect gift for someone who loves the National Parks! I have many of these items listed below and can vouch for them! Enjoy reading through this post with NO annoying flashing ads and check back again…I update this post when I make more discoveries that National Parks fans will appreciate!

Below are links to help you find them.  This site page from Deneen Pottery will provide information on how you can purchase mugs from various parks in person or online. Here you will find parks organized by geography. You will not necessarily be able to find a Deneen mug for every National Park online. For example, Crater Lake…    read more 

How to Print Your Scrapbook Pages

November 15, 2021 |

I want everyone who downloads Memorable Journals sets to have a successful experience in putting together memorable journals! 🙂 If you have an Hewlett Packard (HP) Envy printer, the settings you see here should be similar enough for you to follow along. If you have a different kind of printer, hopefully, the following information will be enough for you to figure out what you need to consider to print up your journal pages. (This is the desktop version, as I find it so much easier to print from there. Also, there are more options when using your desktop or laptop computer.) My paper recommendations are HERE. If you don’t have THE STAPLER yet, go ahead and print out your journal pages now. When your stapler arrives from Amazon, you will be all ready! I have written a whole blog post about this stapler which you can find here. Okay, now…    read more 

This stapler changed my scrapbooking life!

May 28, 2020 |

Scrapbooking should be hassle-free and plastic-free! Gasp…no page protectors? So how do you keep the pages together then? Use a stapler! Not just any stapler though. (If you don’t want to read this whole article, scroll all the way to the bottom for the three tools you need to put together your journals and scrapbooks from Memorable Journals. You should also check out my video of how this stapler is used for making the journals below though!) Besides being hassle-free, stapled-together scrapbooks are easy to take with you wherever you go. Why? They are already put together! And the pages are already decorated, making them fun to write in! You can write your thoughts while they are fresh in your mind. Having many more details in your scrapbooks make them more fun and meaningful to look through for you and your family. The drawing above shows a pretty weird-looking tool. But…    read more 

Sewing Journal Pockets

May 18, 2020 |

I’ve never counted how many journals I’ve made so far, but I’m pretty sure there are at least 100! This “right triangle” (if I recall my geometry correctly) pocket style is my absolute favorite to use. From experience, I know that this style is the most secure and holds quite a bit. Sure I have seen tutorials about gluing your pockets to your pages, but sewing them makes more sense to me. Here’s an example of a hand-sewn pocket that is secure and can hold lots of photos and journaling cards. This particular journal is Crater Lake National Park and is from the National Park series. The directions apply for journals that are printed on US letter-sized paper and then folded…like all of the Memorable Journals sold in the shop. First, print up a page that you want your pocket design to be. Preferably on cardstock. Usually, I attach the…    read more
