Let’s make our little memory book.
Print the journaling cards. There is a variety of them available – print them all or just the ones that appeal to you.
Once printed decorate them with Stickles. I have a love hate relationship with glitter – love the glittery, hate the glitter all over the place but Stickles takes the hate away – so now I only have a love relationship with it ha. It’s easy to use and the end look is pretty professional.
Punch the holes on your cards. Some of the printable cards have markings for holes, you can use those to help you punch holes through others.
Thread ribbon or use rings (rings will be way easier as ribbon can be a bit tricky to work with). And you are done. Your little book is ready to be filled with summer memories.
I just had to snap a photo with these journaling cards, they are the cutest! I love that gold is actually gold, in all it’s shininess.
