Do You Remember Make & Take Demos?


I remember back when I worked for my local scrapbook store we used to have Make & Take demo days where we would demonstrate a new product and customers could come in and make something for free. 

Well I thought it would be fun to do that for you, my awesome online customers!

So each month when I release a new collection, I'll create a coordinating Make & Take product that you can download for free, for 24 hours, on Make & Take Monday. 

Then you and I can make it together on IGTV where I'll share lots of tips and ideas on how to use it!

Printable Plant Lady Tag & Pocket set for traveler's notebooks, junk journals and Bible journaling!  Get it free on Make & Take Monday!

If you're reading this on Make & Take Monday just head over to my IGTV channel to watch the video (you must have an Instagram account), leave me a comment and say hi, and get the coupon code!  Then click over to the Pink Paper Peppermints store and download your kit!

And if you're reading this after Make & Take Monday, no problem!  The coupon code will still get you 20% off the Make & Take kit!

I'm super excited and I hope to see you there!

Peace & Grace,

New "Plant Lady" Journal With Me video from Pink Paper Peppermints!

 
I have a quick new video for you today with some Faith Journal Ideas (and another one almost finished)! 

One of the things I talk about is my favorite thing from Mother's Day, my new mini printer, the HP Sprocket!  It's so fun and the photo stickers that it prints are the perfect size for your Traveler's Notebook or Bible!  I am in love with it!

Cultivate What Matters

My new summer read!  Highly recommend!
 

 

As I was creating the kit for this month I ran across Lara Casey's book, "Cultivate A Grace filled Guide to Growing an Intentional Life"

I have started reading it and it's fantastic!  I also purchased her PowerSheets which are goal planning sheets, and they are really like having a coach with you as you plan.

(They're currently sold out, but she will have new ones out in October I believe, for 2019.  I will let you know as soon as they are out!)

Lara-Casey-Cultivate-What-Matters

I really love her grace-filled, "little by little" approach and as a recovering perfectionist, it's exactly the kind of  coaching I need. 

In the past I have tended to be an "all or nothing" type person, and Lara's book and planner have really helped me with practical ways to overcome that type of thinking.

A really fun part about Lara's book is that she uses the analogy of plants and gardening in cultivating our goals and that fits so perfectly with my new kit!  I've been journaling about my journey with the book using the kit and having so much fun!

Exciting News!

 

One more bit of exciting news about this kit, is that it comes with a S4H/S4O at no additional charge! 

You’ve been asking me for this and I’m happy to finally be able to do that for you!

What this means is that any kit that is marked “S4H/S4O” will have terms that allow your original handmade items only (no digitals or printables) that include my products to be sold, as long as credit is given in the listing, packaging and any videos or social media posts.  You can see the full license information here.

So if you're a handmade junk journal maker and you want to use pieces of the Plant Lady kit in your journals for sale, all you have to do is give credit to Pink Paper Peppermints!  (if you'd like to use it without credit there is an extended license here)

 

 

 

 

I'll be posting videos with instructions and tutorials over the next couple of weeks so be sure you're subscribed to my new Youtube channel to get the latest updates.

 

Have a sweet and happy week and cultivate something good!


Peace & Grace,

 

Melissa~

Valentines Goodies, An Inspiring Movie and the new YouTube channel is Live!

 

 

 

This Week

I have finally beat the perfectionism monster and started posting my faith journaling tutorial videos on Youtube!  I also have some new vintage valentine journaling goodies in the shop!

  


Pink Paper Peppermints TV is Live!


 

 
 
I finally started publishing my Youtube videos!  It's hard to explain how much sheer will power and determination (and mostly fervent prayer, ha!) it took for me to hit that publish button on the video above. 
 
I edited it and re-edited it dozens of times and I still see a million things wrong with it, but I know I will never do it if I wait for the videos to be perfect so I'm just pushing ahead. 
 
Honestly, it's really uncomfortable but I'm going to keep making myself do it, because I want to grow in this area (of fighting perfectionism) and I think uncomfortable comes with the territory, right?
 
I would be so humbled and honored if you have a minute to click over and give me a thumbs up and maybe leave a comment of encouragement?  ♥♥♥

  

 
 

My New Favorite Musical - So Inspiring!

If you haven't seen The Greatest Showman I cannot recommend it highly enough!  It's broken all kinds of records and has been held over at many theaters for several months now. 

I'm not sure how much longer it will be in theaters, but it's one you really want to see on the big screen if possible.  The colors, the costumes and the scenery are just stunning.

Image result for the greatest showman

 

I have not been able to quit listening to the soundtrack and the story is so beautiful, moving and inspiring.  It's kind of like a combination of Singing in the Rain and It's a Wonderful life.  And it's a perfect date night movie!

The critics don't like it of course because it's sweet and happy, but don't listen to them, just go see it and if you're like me you'll leave the theater singing and feeling inspired and hopeful. ♥

A mini Junk Journaling book, Printable Vintage Ephemera and last chance for the Heart of Thanksgiving Goodie Bag!

 

 

 

This Week

It's the last week to catch up on your Heart of Thanksgiving layouts, I have a fun new project to show you and some printable Thanksgiving Ephemera for your Traveler's Notebooks and Junk Journals!

 

 


  


Heart of Thanksgiving - Final Week

Printable vintage thanksgiving and fall ephemera for junk journaling!

 
 
 
This is the last week to catch up on posting your Heart of Thanksgiving layouts on Instagram.  Everyone who posts by Friday, November 17th will receive a digital goodie bag from Nichole @goosekeeperdesigns and myself!
 
Be sure to tag us and use the hashtag #myheartofthanksgiving!

  

 
 

Sisters in Christ Traveling Dori

I'm so excited to be a part of a group of instagram friends that are swapping journals over a year's time!  It's called the "Sisters in Christ Traveling Dori".  We've just started and I wanted to share my first layout with you.




Mini Junk Journal

We're each given 3 pages to work on in each journal.  For the cover page, I didn't want the lines on the page so I actually cut it out and sewed my own dyed paper in.

 

Mini Bible Journaling - Junk Journal for a swap

I cut out a window and used some sequin waste as the backing for it. I typed the scripture that was on my heart for Julie on a label and a scrap of gelli printed paper and then sewed everything on with some ribbon and trim.

Faith art journal with printable scripture pocket!
I backed the window page with some vellum and then layered on some confetti from Michael's using Liquitex Matte Medium.


Traveler's Notebook mini junk journal!

On the back page I added a pocket made from one of my printable Color Note cards.  I filled the pocket with some goodies and a note for Julie and attached a flower and some ribbon with my sewing machine. 

 

 

 

I'm so excited about this project!  I"ll be doing pages in approximately 2 journals per month for the next year, and I plan to share them all with you here!

 

You can also check the hashtag #SistersinChristTravelingDori on Instagram to see all the other beautiful pages!  It's going to be a fun year!

 

Have you ever participated in a journal swap?  I'd love to hear your experiences! 

 

New Heart of Thanksgiving Vintage Ephemera



Printable vintage ephemera for junk journaling in a traveler's notebookMushroom card from my kit here and super cute layered leaf stamp from Studio Calico here.






My final release for this year's "Heart of Thanksgiving" collection is a set of vintage ephemera pieces and journal cards.

Designed to coordinate with the "Heart of Thanksgiving" Traveler's Notebook collection, these embellishments were created with vintage ephemera from my collection and others.

 

Printable junk journal ephemera kit!

 

I think my favorite pieces in this kit are the thanksgiving menu scribbled on half of an envelope and the little sketch of a mid-century lady's thanksgiving table.

I found these at an estate sale in an old recipe box that looked to be from the mid-sixties (note the jello fruit mold as the dessert on the menu).

I don't know why, but I just love that moms were scribbling their Thanksgiving menus out on scraps of paper back then just like I do today (I also love that sketch of her table with the little candlesticks).

  Printable Thanksgiving junk journal ephemera kit!

 

This set includes 5 printable pdfs with 28 pieces of ephemera including journal and index recipe cards.  The cards come with scripture and blank versions for your own sentiment.

 

 

Printable vintage ephemera for junk journals and traveler's notebooks with scripture!  Perfect for faith art and bible journaling!

 

 

You can see a video of these items in action in my journal here!

I have loved working in my Thanksgiving journal so much!  I can't wait to add photos from our preparation and Thanksgiving dinner.


Will you be journaling about your Thanksgiving?

 

Have a sweet and happy week!


Peace & Grace,

 

Melissa~
