Freebie Friday: 1000th post!

This is my 1000th post on this blog! I started this blog almost 2 years ago, just before I became pregnant with Austin. It originally was just a random life blog, but it evolved into a crafting blog as my love for papercrafting and scrapbooking grew. Now, it's something that I truly enjoy updating each week. I love showing off my projects and photographs, and I especially enjoy creating my weekly freebies. Each positive comment or thank you posted on my blog brings a smile to my face. (Even though I may not respond, because I often check my email on my phone and then forget to go back and reply, I read each and every comment I receive, and am truly grateful for all the love you guys show me).

Back to business. In honor of this occasion, I have designed a special freebie for all of you. Actually, I have multiple freebies for you.

First up is a simple 3x4 lined journaling card.


I was chatting with a friend about the redesign of the Project Life Core Kits, specifically, the fact that the backs of all journaling card will now be filler cards. She mentioned that she would be bummed because she often used just the blank lined side for her journaling. Have no fear! I've got a printable for you :)


Round the corners or leave them square, whichever your personal preference is. Click here to download the 3x4 jpg file and a PDF with 4 cards on a sheet for easy printing.

FYI, the journal cards this week all have a very thin border line around them solely meant as a guide when trimming them down.

And now for the big freebie - a set of fun journaling cards AND labels to match.


This is a set of 8 lined journaling cards, along with a set of 7 coordinating labels (3 3/8" x 1 3/8").  Click here to grab the jpg files and 3 PDF sheets (one of labels, two of the journaling cards) for easy printing.


The labels are just the right width to put through your Xyron Create-A-Sticker:


And you can use them in a variety of ways:


As I've mentioned above, each download comes with printable PDFs.


Phew! A lot of work this week, but I wanted to give you guys something extra special for this milestone post.

By the way, I'd like to thank Jessica McCarty for her free seamless paper texture download. I used the Fawn color behind my freebie images this week. I've been loving the look of Kraft paper behind a lot of the freebies around the net, and it was awesome to find such a great freebie. :)

If you guys love my freebies, please feel free to pin them and spread the word! :)
