Throwback Thursday: Typecast Gratitude Journal

Pre-bound notebooks are a great way to journal thoughts, emotions, moments, and memories of all kinds. The Typecast Mint Paper Collection includes some bound notebooks with darling pockets and inserts, perfect for recording your life. Last fall, designer Aly Dosdall shared a gratitude journal she made with the Typecast notebook, tags, mini cards, and paper pad, along with her Typecast Typewriter. Check out her post below!


I love these Typecast Pocket Notebooks–they’re perfect for art journals, memory keeping, mini albums, and smash-style journals.


I added my Instax mini photos and some papers, journaling cards, tags, and labels from the Typecast Mint paper collection.


I kept the dimension on my pages to a minimum so that my journal will close and not be too bulky.


I stamped the date for each day with a Heidi Swapp roller stamp, and I typed my journaling on the Typecast cards and papers.



Some of the notebook pages have pockets with inserts where I journaled about the one thing I chose to be grateful for each day.


I used some washi tape from the Scotty Dog dispenser, and some shaped paper clips from the Oh Goodie collection.


I also included a few rub-ons from the new Photo Lights collection. I’m usually not a fan of rub-ons because they can be hard to work with, but these rub-ons went on so smoothly and easily.



Each page design is a bit different, but includes similar elements to maintain some continuity throughout the album.




It’s been awesome to focus on one thing I’m grateful for each day and write my feelings about it.


Thanks for joining me today!
