Printables: October

Happy Monday! With October coming close to an end, I thought it's about that time again for my monthly Printables post! In case you missed September's batch, you can find it here. I originally started using free printables over a year ago for my SMASH* books. Over time, I've incorporated them into all of my books. My Project Life album, handmade Daybooks, even my Filofax organizers.

If the whole "Printables" thing is new to you, or it's something you've been meaning to look into, I strongly urge you to read this post. You'll find lots of helpful tips and tricks for at-home printing, including ways to save time and money doing it...

Every month I'm on the lookout for new free printables to add to my collection. In October, it's journal & filler cards, along with fun elements I can use in my books. Since I only print once a month, I need my stuff to go the extra mile... the versatility of the printables I use helps with that.

Now onto the goodies....

Printables: OCT | Editable Notecards

Hello Notecards by Benign Objects
Striped Notecards by Jenny Bevlin

These cards could be used for anything. Journal cards for Project Life or notecards for penpal letters. I'll be using these as paper for my A5 Filofax planner. [Just punch holes!] Hence the, "I'm a Filofax Addict." It'll be a fun place for important notes, favorite quotes, a checklist. Anything.

Printables: OCT | Journalers. Fillers. Elements.

I'm always restocking my supply of Project Life cards. I love the fun and colorful designs and styles available! A lot of the stuff I found this month had little elements as part of the collection. They're so versatile... try using 'em in different books! The Watercolor set has circle tags & labels, and prompt cards for journaling. The What About Me collection has cards, washi, flair, banners, and label sentiments. I even found some Pinterest cards!

Printables: OCT | Typography & Quote Cards

Smile Quote from LiveLaughRowe
Beautiful Life Quote via Pinterest
Little Fighter Quote via tumblr
Inspire Quote by Ashley Ella

None of my books or projects would be complete without quote cards and typography. Each with their own special message. I print them as 4x6 or 3x4 [shown here] and tuck them into Project Life pockets, add them to my Filofaxes for inspiration, or as an element on a SMASH* spread. Be creative! [Tip: I used a small corner punch on these cards.]

Printables: OCT | Designer - Vintage Glam Studio

The Blues Journaling Elements
Air Mail Journaling Elements
Vintage Office Supply Journaling Elements

Each month I like to feature a new favorite designer. I recently came across Vintage Glam Studio... and fell in love. The style of VGS is sweet and whimsical. Shown here are just a few of the designs, but there are still about a dozen more left to print! Each of these sets come with 4 fun journal cards and a various mix of elements. From banners and washi tape to flair, flags, and labels. The cards are great for PL, and the little elements would be perfect for planners or SMASHing. I know how I'll be using mine! I highly recommend browsing Vintage Glam's blog. There are so many wonderful things to be discovered!

  1. Printables again - YAY! :)...thanks for sharing those links, which means new stuff for me too ;))
    I really like your idea of printing just once a month instead of a little bit here and a little bit there.
    I came across the Vintage Glam's blog a couple of days ago, and I love their printables! :)

    1. You're welcome Thanni! I'm so happy you enjoy my monthly Printables round-ups :)

      Thanks! Over time I've had to make adjustments to my process to save time and money. Just thought I would share what I've learned.

      Isn't it great? I love their printables too! I still have so many sheets left to print! Guess I'll save 'em for the next batch...

      Take care!

  2. These are great, I'm definitely pinning! Hugs, Roxy.

    1. I'm so glad you like them Roxy :) Pin away... and have fun printing 'em!

  3. Love how you collected all your favorite printables! And thanks for including mine in your post :) xo, Michelle

    1. Thank you Michelle :) I've been doing it for over a year... I thought why not share with the world the wonderful things I've found. This month I discovered your blog. The Watercolor Accents are gorgeous! Can't wait to use them in my books.

      Thanks for creating and sharing your lovely printables <3

    2. It's my pleasure :) If you post what you make with the cards, I'd love it if you shared them with me! Then maybe I can feature you on my blog in the future :D

    3. That would be awesome Michelle! I will most definitely share my projects using your goodies :) What would be the best way to do that with you?

      Thanks for the opportunity!

  4. Thank you! So many wonderful freebies.

    1. You are so very welcome! Have fun printing 'em up :)

  5. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get
    setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly
    appreciated. Appreciate it

    Here is my homepage; website; ,

    1. No problem! I actually designed my blog myself :) I'm a bit tech saavy because of my father being a computer programmer, so I knew some things when it came to working on Blogger. But I'm mostly self taught. I love to play around a lot with the layout, background designs, banners, badges, fonts, etc. Whatever I can't figure out, I usually google it to find a solution or call my father. Not sure if this helps!
