Looking for a free printable valentine scrapbook paper? Download this all over heart design with matching lined design for your projects!
As we approach February, the Valentine holiday is definitely on my mind. Although I’m not into the commercial aspects, I do like all occasions to celebrate love, romance and relationships. Whether you are making gifts for a significant other, your friends or your children – it’s a great occasion to just show that you care!
I love creating paper crafts and making a card or two for friends and family. Scrapbooking is also a great way to frame your photos and add the memories to your documentation. Lately I’ve been feeling the muted color palette, so created this cute heart-filled patterned paper design in a very muted burgundy wine color palette. The striped paper matches up with the busy heart design, so I hope these will be useful for your projects!
Will you scrapbook, make a card or wrap a small gift with these printable papers? I love to use printable papers in my art journaling as well.

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.
