These are the journals my sister and I made for our Girls' Weekend away.
There were 15 of us women, all from the same family, who went to Kansas City to attend Deseret Book's Time Out For Women.
If you've never had the chance to go I'd recommend it. It's so uplifting and inspiring.
And it's nice to get away for just a little bit :)
The theme was "Choose to Become", so we put that on the cover or our books.
These are the pages inside the book with tabs...
It's easier if you can find papers that already come in kits, like this set. That way you don't have to try and match papers. We didn't have kits for all the books, so we had to use our mad matching paper skilz.
We made envelopes using the Cricut for the ladies to keep their tickets & other memorabilia in.
We used different things on each envelope to make the clasps. This one has circles & eyelets.
Inside the back cover we made pockets containing strips of paper.
Everyone in our group wrote little notes to each other or words that described each other on these strips & gave them to each other. It's always nice to hear nice things from people you love.
Plus I love that we can go back and read uplifting words just when we need it!
This year we also made bookmarks out of ribbon and metal embellishments for each book.
They were so cute and fun to make. I only wish I had more charms, cause charms are so fun!!
Each woman chose her colors & we tried our best to match their favorite colors.
I hope they all enjoyed them and were able to record all their wonderful memories from that weekend.
Love these ladies!!!
Here's a link to the post showing the one I made a couple years ago.
And here's my awesome friend, Tiffany, who gave me the original idea. Thanks Tiff!!
