Bridal Shower Journal and Thank You Cards

Do you ever find yourself running out of time?  I know I do and I don't always have time to create oodles of handmade cards.  Here's a quick way to step up store bought thank you cards by adding a cricut cut and an embellishment:

I added the cricut cut of the bride from the cartridge Wrap It Up both to the inside of the card and the front of the envelope.  I then added a strand of ribbon with a simple knot tie.  Super simple, super fast, and super looking compared to the plain thank you card.

I also made a gift journal for my stepdaughter to keep track of presents and cards she receives.  The front and back cover are cut from the cartridge Wrap It Up utilizing the card selection.  I dolled it up by adding a pearl embellishment and ribbon ties to the the rings once I  bound it together using my Bind It All.

I added her initials "to be" on the inside front cover using the cartridge Martha Stewart Elegant Cake Art and stamped the inside pages with a journaling stamp so that she may write in the gifts as she receives them. I also added three tabs - bridal shower, bachelorette, and wedding.  Then, all she has to do is check off the boxes once she sends a thank you card. Hopefully this will help keep her organized and simplify the process for her.
