Check out these Free Planner Dashboard Printables to add to your system for a splash of pretty inspiration and motivational phrases.
When it comes to planner sizes, I know there are so many options out there, so I decided to create these designs on a full LETTER sized paper. This means you can print it large like an art print or size down as necessary. I’m not an expert at all regarding conversion of sizes, but I’ve made sure to leave a lot of spacing around the central design, so you can always just trim to get the exact size you want.
The designs are all in a pinky earthy color palette that I’m totally feeling now. Very cozy and homey, but chic fashionable as well. There’s a light animal print pattern in the background with the white motivational phrase in the lower right corner. With a variety of phrases and colors to choose from, these dashboards can be very aesthetic but also functional in separating sections of your planner. I always love to include a bit of motivational artwork in my planner, even if I’m mostly functional and don’t use stickers or decorate. Since I look at my planner every day, I want it to be filled with things I WANT to see on a regular basis.

Looking for positive affirmation printables to put on your wall, planner or journal? Check out these free inspiring and uplifting downloads.
Why Positive Affirmations?
Affirmations are positive statements such as “I am capable” and you have probably heard the term tossed around before. Affirmations can be very helpful in changing your life when you repeat them out loud and consistently. These statements can actually help you overcome negative thoughts, deal with stress and motivate you to change your life.
And yes, there is science behind it and that is why you will hear people praising the power of positive affirmations. If you are new to the idea, it can feel awkward talking to yourself out loud and it’s completely normal to be skeptical. But as with all things in life, you have to try it out with consistency before you can make a judgement for yourself.
If you’ve been here before, you know that I have designed a whole coloring book around the idea of positive thoughts and affirmations. But even when you are convinced or know better, it’s often the “take action” part that is difficult for most people to follow through with – myself included.
For example, we all know that we have eat healthy and exercise to stay well. However, the issue is creating a life and routine that helps you take those “good for you” actions. They say that knowing is half the battle, but it IS just half the battle unfortunately!
Printable Affirmations Around You
When it comes to positive affirmations, I have found that displaying positive statements into my planner, onto my desk and around my house really helps to put them into action. Along with my everyday life, when I see them I can say them out loud. This also means I can change up what I display over time. It’s easy to take a few minutes to say them out loud, when you see it right in front of your face regularly.
Don’t hesitate to put up an affirmation on your bathroom or beauty mirror. How about adding one as a wallpaper on your phone? What about making one into a planner dashboard or cover? It’s an easy way to piggy-back off an existing routine and add positive affirmations into your existing space.
I decided to start a design series of positive affirmation printables that I could add to my everyday life routine. Normally, I love bright colors and cute fonts, but in this case I wanted to create something much more bold and powerful.
I think of the design style as classic and straightforward that would work for most everyone. A bold black background with a white classic serif font says “strength” to me and I think that works for establishing a foundational affirmation day to day. Of course, the typeface still has a bit of flair! I hope you enjoy the beauty of simplicity in these designed positive affirmation statements.
Download Positive Affirmation Printables
Below are the affirmations that I have created so far and you can bookmark this page for future reference as I will add more over time. It’s definitely a mix of positive affirmations that are “I am” focused as well as other positive printables and uplifting phrases for strength, love and empathy.
You are free to download the PDFs for your personal use – the printable PDF design does not include my social media handle, just plain black with white text.
Looking for a happy lemon scrapbook paper design? Check out this cute lemon pattern design, a totally free download for all your crafty paper projects.
We’ve all heard that quote about life… lemons… and making lemonade, right? Even though it’s totally cliche, it truly is great advice, right? I mean, you’ve just got to make the best of whatever you’ve got. There’s no sense in being a grump, because it just doesn’t help the situation. I love the sentiment and try to remind myself all the time…
And so as I was pondering this topic one day, I decided to create a lemon leaf repeat pattern. Super simple and straightforward, but truly packed with so much meaning. The lemon is a motif that has so much packed into it… I love it! Plus, I love yellow. Hah!
So I created this lemon patterned paper design in a couple of variations and sharing here with you for free download.

Since this product is printable, you can pick and choose the pages you want to use and print however many copies you need for your particular project. Please note that the cover image size does limit how thick your book spine can be – unless you have access to print larger than a regular sheet of paper or can piece two pieces of paper together – get creative and see what you can make!
Vintage Printables Free Download Instructions
Here’s a quick summary of how I created my vintage journal with this printable kit. I’ll offer alternatives and tips along the process as well.
STEP 1 – DOWNLOAD PRODUCT and PRINT
First, if you want to make this exact journal, download the printables files to your computer or alternatively you can follow these instructions and just use other materials you have on hand.
I have these vintage printables free downloads in multiple PDF files, so download all of them or just designs you want below…
The PDFs make it easy to just print everything at once or you can choose to print only certain pages. When printed actual size, the final journal will be approximately 6x4inches.
Vintage Printables Tips
consider what paper you would like to use, the thicker the paper the more sturdy your journal will be
the thicker the paper, the fatter your journal will be
since you are only printing on one side of the page, you might want to consider printing on colored paper or back side of patterned paper, if you don’t want blank backsides. however they are nice for journaling and decorating too!
consider adding patterned paper, kraft paper or colored cardstock along with printed pages to expand your journal
remember when printing to check your printer settings, use the highest quality possible
make sure no parts of the imagery are cut off in printing
I recommend using heavy cardstock for your cover image at least, it will protect your journal pages
STEP 2 – CUT and INK
Use your preferred cutting tool to cut out all the printed designs. Note that you don’t have to be super exact, because you can also ink the edges of your pages after trimming to hide any imperfections and finish off your printables, giving it an inked edge look.
For my journal, I also cut some kraft papers to add more blank pages. I also folded my printed pages in different directions, since I only printed designs on one side and the back is blank. To vary how they would appear in my journal, I folded some pages to show design on the front and others on the back and mixed up all the pages to create variety.
More Vintage Printables Tips
ink the edges of your pages for a finishing effect
consider how many pages you would like in your journal, print more copies if you would like
consider adding plain pages, lined pages, kraft paper, cardstock, etc if you would like to expand your book
consider cutting pages in different sizes for variety
For your the cover design, I sewed the printed piece onto another piece of kraft paper to make the cover thicker and sturdier. Then I sewed the label for decoration and embellished with alphabet stickers. You can embellish your cover in a number of ways, but creating some kind of border or reinforcement all the way around helps to keep the journal cover sturdy. Not that the size of the cover page is a bit larger than the page size to help protect the pages within.
If you don’t have a sewing machine, you can easily glue pieces of paper together to get a thicker cover and glue embellishments on the cover to decorate.
STEP 3 – PUNCH and BIND
There are a number of ways you can put your journal pages together. I chose to punch 3 holes (because I had varying paper sizes) and stitched together all the pages folded in half. However, you can also glue your pages back to back – which might be better if you don’t want to see the back sides of your pages if you only printed on one side. There are many book binding methods out there, so take a look on this blog for other ideas as well. But any basic long stitch or pamphlet stitch will do!
For the cover, I decided to add some eyelets to holes to reinforce the paper. You can also smear some glue on your punched holes and let it dry to reinforce them without eyelets. You can even use nail polish – just something to stop the punched edges of the holes from tearing with use.
Using linen string, I stitched the entire book together, nothing fancy, just stringing through, in and out, long stitching and tied a knot at the end. Super simple.
Final Vintage Printables Binding Tips
You can use a hole punch to punch holes, or simply a needle for something smaller. Depending on the thickness of your paper, you might want smaller holes.
Consider using other materials such as ribbon to bind your book together. If your pages are all the same size, you can just do two holes as well.
Note that I have not folded or scored my cover paper…I want to keep it sort of softly rounded in the spine area
STEP 4 – EMBELLISH
Finally, after making your journal, you can embellish and use it!
For the cover, I used alphabet stickers to create a title. You can also write directly on the label or print out something you have typed on the computer to add on.
For the pocket on the inside cover, it’s best to fold the larger flap behind and up first, then glue the little flaps on either side. This gives you a smooth inside pocket to slip things into. Then glue the whole pocket into your journal. I put it on the inside of the front cover, but you can also add it to the first page of your journal or the back cover instead. You can also print more copies and create more pockets within the journal for more space!
For the tags, I punched holes at the top and added some linen string. Pretty simple, but cute. I’m keeping them int the pocket, before adding them throughout my journal. The pocket is nice for keeping ephemera or to store some materials that you will use in the journal.
Vintage Printables Tips for Embellishments
Consider how you would like to embellish your journal cover.
Consider what you would like to include in your pocket or print more than one to include throughout the pages of the journal.
You can ink up or pre-embellish your tags as well
Many like to embellishment the binding or spine of their journals with fiber, charms, etc
Use ribbon or other material to create a closure for your journal (I used braided ribbon for mine)
Above all, have fun with it and make it your own! My goal was to start things up and create a template for the creation of a vintage styled journal…but where your creativity takes you, along with unique supplies… makes it a custom book just for you!
As a final touch, I decided to braid up some ribbon and wrap it around my journal, to keep it together and to add a little special touch. Whatever crafty supplies you have lying around would be great to use!
I hope my documentation gives you enough instruction to create the vintage journal, but I also hope this has provided some good suggestions and tips on how to make it your own as well.
Enjoy this Vintage Printable Freebie and have fun creating!
