It’s Instruction Day here on my blog. All you have to do is click on the image below to access the instruction pdf. It is a large file so please be patient as it downloads. If you would like more background on the “Every Needful Thing” program that I am offering this year, click here or choose “Every Needful Thing” in the Categories on the right side of my blog.
One of the ways that we are personalizing each notebook is through the color. Every book will use black chipboard as its base, covered in this black and white patterned paper. Every book will have the same ribbon. Every book will have the same quotes and die cuts, printed on the same cardstock.
So, how will we make them personal? By using black, white, and cream as our main color theme, it is easy to add in one more color to the notebooks. Everything you see in the instructions that is the aqua color is actually what each woman in our neighborhood will get to choose. We are offering pink, green, red, black and aqua in the color of the flowers and pockets. This way we can “mass produce” the notebooks but still offer each woman a sense of individuality.
I will share another way that we are personalizing the notebooks later this week. It involves the inside of the back cover – where on the instructions you will see has a blank sheet mounted to it. I’ll tell you what we are planning for that sheet in a few days. I think that it might be my favorite part of this whole project.
Along with the instructions, I am also giving you the downloads needed for this project. Click on each image to download the pdfs. The download for the quote from Doctrine & Covenants is in the post from the beginning of this week. Click here to see that.
With regard to the excerpt from the talk by Henry B. Eyring, the download I am giving you is to create two cards with the printing on the front and back. Don’t be confused when you see that the same words are shown twice on the first page of the download – the second half of the quote is on the second page of the download to make it easier to print it front-to-back.
What are your plans for this project? Any ideas yet? We would love to hear your thoughts about how you are going to approach “Every Needful Thing” this year. Happy downloading!
Just Added….here is an email I got this morning – I thought it might be helpful to others as well:
So this is an in person class with 90 women and you and your team will provide kits for them, right?
Now here is where my question is…are you also inviting your blog readers to participate? We then download and prints the pdf’s to put together our own book. So we ( I ) need to acquire my own embellishments, cardstock, etc…is that right?
Yes, Catherine. You are exactly right.
