Organize your DIY Journal with Bea

Hi, We R Memory Keepers fans! It’s Bea here today sharing a super quick and easy organization tip with you you can apply regularly in your daily journal. 

Like many of you, keeping my journal up to date is important for me. It’s a kind of mixture of planner and diary, I document important information, memories as well as everyday stories, and  I used to include daily to-do lists or reminders. 

Although I want to keep my personal stories, daily tasks are quickly taken out of the journal. That’s why I make colorful tags for these little notes that can be easily inserted and removed from the diary.

I used WRMK tag punch and banner punch to make the cards quickly and effortlessly. First I trimmed down color cardstock into 2×6 inches, and then I punched the top and the bottom of the tags. To keep them organized I hung them on a ring.

When I want to put a note in my diary, all I have to do is cut a note with scissors and put it on the ring. Voila!

I always use DIY journals I make for myself using disc power punch and patterned papers. I like to use colors and patterns appropriate to the season. Here is a video about the basic steps of the assembling: 

The size of the journal is 4.25×6″. I used stone paper and heavy cardstock to create the cover. Stone paper is the perfect base if you want to add mixed media to your project. I blended yellow and red ink and adhered stickers as the title.

I hope you like my DIY journal and tag inserts, and I could inspire you to create one for yourself. Thanks for stopping by!
