Printables: June

Happy Monday Everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Today, I'm happy to finally share my recent batch of free printables for the month. If you missed last month's post, you can find it here. Are you new to at-home printing? Be sure to check out this post full of helpful hints and tips, as well other ideas and information, to help you get started with printing your own cards for SMASH* and Project Life.

I like to print a big batch of cutouts and cards to add to my stash on a monthly basis. I do it this way to save money and make it easier on myself. You wouldn't believe how expensive at-home printing can be if you don't set limits. It can also get pretty tedious and exhausting to print and cut each and every day you find something new online. Doing them once a month works for me and my budget. I need those ink cartridges to go the extra mile... not just for my own printables, but also printables for swapping, everyday Project Life and instagram photos, and regular household printing each month. I'm proud to say with this process, I can make an ink cartridge and white cardstock last for months!

Every month I look for specific types of cards to add to my collection. This month, I kept an eye out for fun and colorful journal and filler cards that represent everything I love about summer. There were so many to choose from! Here in this post I'll be sharing a few of my favorite finds....

On the Right ----> "June Cards" by Kimberly Kalil

I love the set from Simple Stories! They include both 6x4 and 3x4 journal cards with cute and colorful designs that totally work for documenting the summer season. And the adorable set by Kimberly Kalil couldn't be more perfect either. They have summer written all over them! She releases a set of new cards every month, and I'm so in love with this one. I can't wait for the rest of her cards coming this season!

Bottom Right ----> "Shopaholic" by Sugary Fancy [on Facebook]

I'm not really a girly girl, but my 4 year-old definitely is. What I do love most about this group of cards are the beautiful colors and designs. The pretty pastels and other gorgeous shades work great for summer as well. I chose to print the first set of cards [Soft Triangles] on both white and Kraft cardstock for two totally different looks. The "Besties" set is so stinkin' cute! I can't wait to use them this summer to document the fun times my daughter has with her friends. I'm in love with the stunning colors and sweet designs on the "Free Spirit" cards. But I have to say, my favorite from this group are the "Shopaholic" cards. I'll be using those for sure!

That's all I have for you this month :) I really hope you enjoyed my post today and found a few new printables along the way! If you see some cards that you like but I didn't feature it in today's post, don't worry.

  1. You found some cute printables! I especially love those summer ones by Kimberly Kalil.


    1. Thank you Julie! I thought so too ;) I agree...Kimberly Kalil's printables are fabulous this month! She's one of my favorite designers. I can't wait to see her next set of cards this summer!

  2. Thank you soo much!!!!
    I must ask where did you find the camera one with the hearts in the background? I NEED IT!!! :)

    1. Hi Kate! You're welcome :) I love that one too. It is actually a set of 4 camera cards each with a different background. Do you have a Pinterest account? You can find the link to that specific printable on my "Smash* & PL" pinboard. I included a link to that board at the bottom of my blog post...

    2. Just got it!!! Thank you again!!!

    3. Great! You are so very welcome. Enjoy your printables! Stop by and see me again soon :)

  3. How do you print off the journal cards that are "alone"/by themselves not in PDF form?

    1. You print them the same way you would print your photos. They are the same type of files.

  4. and what size? :D

    1. Your printer should give you various options for sizes. Depending on what type of project you're doing or using them for, would determine what size you need.
