2018 YW Printable Round-UP + Giveaway!


This has been the most fun collection to design... not just because the theme "Peace in Christ" is so awesome and not just because the scripture D&C 19:23 is one of my favorites - but because I wanted to do something bright, colorful and uplifting that the girls would love and be drawn to. 


Supplementing, reinforcing and encouraging the theme throughout the year with items like these keeps the theme in the forefront of the girls mind... whether it be using a lip balm at school, grabbing a pen or glancing at a zipper pull hanging on their backpack.  I guess that's why I do collections like this - to help thread the theme in their mind through fun, casual, every day ways - so that when they need to be reminded most - maybe something hanging in their room will help them feel peace and remind them to turn to the Savior.

Anyway - that's why I do it... :)

So - now that the collection is finally complete, let's do a giveaway! I'll pick two winners and they may choose to get either the complete 2018 YW Bundle (shown above) OR a $30 Gift Card to my shop! 

Winners will be announced Thursday night!


UPDATE: Congrats to Stacey Shaw and Dottie Rowland! Check your email! :) For everybody else, please enjoy YW30 for 30% off any purchase now through tomorrow!

Happy Printing!

Conference Quotes from President Monson




I've been designing General Conference Quotes for several years (minus this past conference) and this morning when I heard the news of President Monson's passing - I got up and did a quick search of the quotes I had done. You've probably collected all of these from my other General Conference collections, but this will give you all of them in one download.

What an amazing man, how lucky we were to have him guiding, counseling and leading us for so many years! One part of me wants to mourn - the other part wants to rejoice... he has certainly earned joyous rest in the presence of our Heavenly Father and our Savior. I'm sure there were some sweet reunions last night - with his wife Frances particularly... and can you even imagine President Hinckley greeting him? 

What a moment that must have been. 

I sure do love our prophets!! I love that we know who we are, where we are going and what our purpose is. I love that we don't just know where he is, but know who he's with. 

Families are forever, I know it. ♥

INTRODUCING... Editable Sunday Lesson Kits for 2018!




I am SO EXCITED to introduce you to something Lisa and I have been working on for WEEKS! Since the announcement was made earlier this Fall regarding 3rd hour lessons shifting from manuals to talks/topics and council meetings in the new Come Follow Me Format - we hit the drawing board to come up with a CUTE (and creative) solution. THEN... add that to the DOZENS (and dozens) of emails I get from long-time customers of other faiths wanting lesson kits for their churches - and a brilliant plan was born... BLANK/EDITABLE Sunday Lesson Kits!

This means... any class, any auxiliary, any age, any topic, any talk, any manual, any church/faith - now has as collection of fun, colorful kits at your fingertips! We are launching with 3 kits and will add 3 new ones each month. Each kit will have both a PDF and Word Doc to make editing and adding your own text a BREEZE! A sheet of instructions/tips is included + we tested this with our less-than-computer-savvy mom... AND EVEN SHE COULD DO IT!! 

... and yes - each kit includes blank handout tags, quote templates AND blank nugget wrappers!

You're welcome! ;)


Each kit will include the following: 5 full page posters (great for your key topics and main points), a square poster and strips (great for asking a question; answers on strips), 2 handout tags (4x3 rectangle and 2" round), Quote Templates (8x10 & 4x6) + blank nugget wrappers (great for putting scripture references on to pass out)! 

Overall, they are very similar to our RS Lesson Kits - just blank!


Also included (or available separately as a freebie for everyone) is my Lesson Planner!

I've been teaching for YEARS - it's something I have a knack for, it's something I absolutely love and I'm so grateful it comes very naturally to me. I'm not a preacher - I'm not a reader... instead, I love to generate meaningful discussion, ask thought provoking questions and most of all look for ways to make the topic applicable to every day life. I want my class to leave uplifted and motivated to think more about the topic and how they can use it in their lives. I use the spirit as my guide, but it does take signification preparation to get ready... so I dug deep into my little brain and created on paper how I study, ponder my thoughts, organize ideas and create a flow to my lesson that ultimately becomes a discussion. 

Each section of the planning pages match up nicely with the pieces of our Lesson Kits to help guide you for what text to put on your templates - or it can be used by itself to simply plan out your lesson.

A few tips on editing...


HOW TO ADD TEXT TO WORD: To begin... open the file in Word and click "Enable Editing" to begin. We've already set up the file for you with our cute designs and editable text boxes; you simply just type your own text! You can adjust the font, font size and color just like you would in any Word Document. You can also add, remove and resize text boxes as needed. When finished, use "SAVE AS" and rename your file so you can find it easily in the future - doing so also keeps the original file as a blank template to use for another lesson. If you ever save over the original blank version, you can always download a new blank one here on your account history - or simply delete the text you inserted, click "SAVE AS" again and rename the file. 


HOW TO ADD TEXT TO A PDF: There are two basic (and easy) ways to add text to a PDF. First, simply open the file in Adobe Reader (the most current version is best) and using the "Add Comment" function found on the right panel - simply add text boxes. You can change the font, font size, font color and can move around and resize the text box as needed. Be sure to "SAVE AS" when you are done adding your text - then print! Second, there are TONS of free online PDF Editors out there... just do a search and find one you like. Most are similar... they use an "add text box" function, just like Adobe Reader. When done, download the PDF with the newly added text and print! 


THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX! Our Sunday Lesson Kits will work great for classes AND events for YW, RS, Sunday School, Gospel Doctrine, Bible Study Groups, Activity Days, Primary (Classes and Sharing Time), FHE, Preschool, Home School, PTA Meetings, Council Meetings, etc. The full page posters can be for discussion points in a lesson or to label an activity station... the 4x6 quote template is great for a handout, but could also be used to make invitations - think outside the box, these kits are versatile and can be used in many ways!

The possibilities are truly endless...


A NOTE TO MY LDS FRIENDS... The Lord is raising the bar on us! We need to teach better by the Spirit and rely less on manuals and outlines - and the "exact" words of others (like reading a talk or the majority of a lesson word for word). We need to better learn and KNOW the doctrine of the gospel so we can teach it to others, especially our families! This change is a chance to truly hone in and develop not only a better, stronger testimony - but translate that into teaching more like the Savior. This new format is an opportunity to rise to the occasion and is surely a sign of the times we live. A final thought... these kits are well suited for any lesson or class, YW/RS - even Primary, Youth Sunday School and Gospel Doctrine. They can even be incorporated into your Council Meetings to illustrate goals, topics, questions, actions, etc. Good luck in the New Year! ♥

NEW Annual RSVP Pen Insert Gift Set!


Who doesn't LOVE cute pens?!

By popular request - I finally put together an annual set, a pen insert for every month... and LOOK how cute they are all packaged up! So - whether you just want a cute pen on your desk or to use with your planner... or if want to package them up for a gift (or stocking stuffer), this set is is a must have if you are a pen fanatic like me!

Designed for RSVP Pentel Pens (my favorite pen) - it's wide clear tube makes it a great home for a rolled paper insert! Best of all, this pen is cheap and widely available at grocery stores, office stores, big box stores, and online. Below is an easy tutorial to show you how to make them...


To package it like me, a packaging card is provided. Print it on card stock and fold it over to form a strong backing that will hold the weight of 12 pens. Clip the pen lids over the folded edge (in order of course) and slip into a 6x9 cello bag. I got ones that have a self-adhesive closure so all I had to do was fold over and secure to the back. Also provided in the PDF is a printable ribbon/strip to wrap around the package, secure with clear tape and you can simply hide one of the seams under the tag (which can be punched with a 2" punch). So fun, huh!!

Here are some links on Amazon if you are a Prime Junkie like me... (ad)



As always, I recommend using a glossy finish paper and your printer's BEST quality print setting. For more printing tips, visit my FAQ's page!
