It has been a while since I’ve posted a project here. That’s because for the past few months I’ve been working hard with my friend Jennifer Wilson of Simple Scrapper on volume 2 of our popular book, Everyday Storyteller. If you’re a scrapbooker, either paper or digital, you know Everyday Storyteller is an inspiring idea book featuring articles from 33 of the industry’s leading scrappers. Now, along with our amazing graphic designer, Lynnette, we’re putting together Everyday Storyteller 2! And, we have a whole new line-up of amazing scrappers as contributors!
I love working behind the scenes on ES as copy editor and assistant to Jennifer and can’t wait until we release the new book (ebook and print formats) in May with a huge launch party and prizes.
If you’re a scrapbooker, or just want to learn more about this hobby, become an Everyday Storyteller 2 VIP! It’s free! As an ES2 VIP, you’ll get:
- An exclusive invitation to our launch party on Friday, May 3 (last year we had more than 500 attend!)
- An exclusive entry in special VIP-only giveaways
- First notice that the book has been released AND a special VIP discount
Once my work on ES2 slows down, I promise to have more LDS printables for you to enjoy.
Thanks again for visiting my blog! You are all AMAZING!
Here is a much-requested 2013 Mutual Theme printable for you! It is a candy bar wrapper for the 6.8-ounce Symphony and Hershey’s bars. These are the large ones that are labeled giant. It has all the same features of my other candy bar wrappers: the 2103 Mutual Theme, a scripture-filled ingredients list, Stand as a Witness 24-7 barcode and a nutrition facts box filled with Young Women’s Personal Progress Values.

As requested, I’ve got candy bar wrappers for you! These wrappers feature my 2013 Mutual Theme logo and fit the standard 1.55-ounce Hershey’s Bar. (I hope to have large-size versions soon.) Just print, cut and glue for a fun and easy handout for YW/YM birthdays, New Beginnings, Young Women in Excellence, youth conference and more.

Here’s my next printable for you: Customizable note cards! We’re giving these to our girls with their birthday gifts, so I added the greeting Happy Birthday to the cards. But, I’ve put my note cards into an editable PDF file so you can add your own message to the black bar on the bottom of each card! From Congrats!, Thinking of You, Thank You and You’re Invited to Just a Note, you can customize these note cards to fit any occasion.

Just an update on my downloads. I had so many downloads from this blog (Yay! and Thanks!) that dropbox suspended my account. I have found a solution and am at this moment transferring all my files to Amazon S3. I am going through each post and updating the download links as I go. It is taking some time to upload all of my files and get new links, so I ask for a little more patience as I get things up and running again. Again, I’m so amazed and grateful to have such fantastic support from all of you! This is indeed a good problem to have Thanks again for your patience!
I just got word from dropbox.com (where I host my downloads) that I’ve had way too many downloads recently. They’ve suspended my account for a couple of days. I’m beyond thrilled at the amazing support you’ve all given me and for the huge numbers of views and downloads I’ve gotten over the past year. My blog readers are the greatest! But, all this success has given me a bit of a problem with dropbox and I need to find another solution. Please be patient and give me a few days to set up something to keep this blog and the downloads coming. Thanks again for your amazing support!
A wonderful blog reader, Melanie, found some mistakes with the 2013 Mutual Theme Calendar interactive PDF file: Some of the days in July and October had the wrong font and one of the sidebars also had a very large font. Thank you, Melanie! I have fixed the download with the updated interactive PDF file and hope these mistakes don’t cause any of you too much trouble. You can download the corrected PDF file here or in the original 2013 calendar post.
I am finalizing some more projects for you and should have them up soon. I’ve got some candy bar wrappers, fabric designs, posters and more. Thanks again for visiting my blog!
One of my favorite talks from the October 2012 General Conference was “Be Anxiously Engaged” by Elder M. Russell Ballard. His talk about honeybees and doing good for others was wonderful! This week in our Beehive class, we reviewed this talk and discussed Elder Ballard’s important doctrine: even small, daily acts of kindness and service matter. Elder Ballard suggests that we pray each morning for opportunities to be of service and to remind my girls to follow this counsel, I made a little handout for them to keep in their rooms. It is visual reminder to them that no matter how small their contribution may seem, the good they do makes a difference–just as a single honeybee’s lifetime’s work of 1/12 of a teaspoon of honey matters to the whole hive.
