After sharing several inspirational planner setups and spreads this week, it’s time to talk about memory keeping and creative journaling with the Autumn Thicket Collection
Jil Larson: Simple Dori Memory-Keeping
My notebook spread focuses on fall favorites here at the beginning of October. I really enjoyed reflecting on why I love this season so much! The page I chose for my background is so artsy and beautiful, and I selected a photo of me in one of those big, cozy sweaters I journal about, with fall phrase stickers stacked below the selfie.
I was in love with stickers for this page and ended up using the clear ones in the Autumn Thicket Memory Keeping Sticker Kit to accompany and illustrate my journaling. The round chipboard piece from the Autumn Thicket Traveler’s Notebook Memory Keeping Kit creates a title for my page, which I reinforced by stamping October, pairing it with a sticker and a bit of the plaid washi tape.
I added black machine-stitching here and along the other side, over my die-cut tag, which I layered under another of the stickers. Besides the stitching, a little stamping along the edges adds texture. My finishing touch: enamel dots in three of the gorgeous colors included in the Autumn Thicket Collection. I journaled using copper ink in my fountain pen and clipped one of the delightful leaf clips on the top.
Creating this notebook layout was such a satisfying way to rejoice in the season—hope you’re having just as much fun with this beautiful Autumn Thicket Simple Dori and coordinating kit elements!
Jennifer Crowder: Bible Journaling
I’ve found that it’s the PERFECT size for journaling (LOTS of room!) and makes a fantastic Bible journaling companion. The Autumn Thicket Planner Dashboard Kit makes decorating the Autumn Thicket A5 Daisy Doria snap because everything is already the correct size.
I dedicated the stripe pages in this insert to daily gratitude. The date flags from the Autumn Thicket Planner Kit look SOOOO good, don’t you think?
Of course, every kit in the Autumn Thicket Collection coordinates, so pick your favorite planner or memory-keeping subs and mix and match.
The grid pages serve several purposes for me this month. One is used as a Bible reading log so I can easily see what topics I’ve studied.
Another page is dedicated to a reflection; we studied Jude in small groups and used the alpha stickers to set up a reflection page with a key scripture. I also love how portable this size is. I can easily toss it in my purse and pull it out for journaling/notes during our Sunday sermon. Planning Tip: pick up a set of the Cocoa Daisy Custom Mildliners; they coordinate perfectly with so many kits. Check out this Instagram Reel to see the full setup!
