One Little Word, January Prompt

Who has a One Little Word with Ali this year? I've heard about this idea for years but this is my first year trying it.
In my last post I talked about using the rest of my December Kit for the January prompt. I was seeing a lot of the same themes (More of this/Less of that, etc), so I just knew I could incorporate these cards!  

I kept it pretty simple. I had planned on just having the plain white cards, just like Ali. I do like that clean look. However, my laptop decided to finally die (the horror), so printing the digital files became harder. I learned that I can't tell the printer to print at full size from my phone, so my 3x4 cards were a tad smaller. So, I just mounted them on 3x4 cards.   

For the title page, I printed the OLW logo on a 4x6 and added a little puffy heart. I put this in a 4x6 Sn@p! flip, which  I cut the top sticky strip off of. Then, I used my favorites - those little attachers! I also added a little office supply tab that I had in my stash.  
I'm really enjoying this project! I'm so glad that I'm doing it this year. There is a card from the December Take 10 Kit and I used the Studio Calico gold alphas to spell out my word. The alphas are in the glam bag, still available here.

I used the "Resolutions" card to highlight my four main uses of my word. In addition to my Take 10 Kit cards, I use some neutral cards from my MAMBI stash, also. 
As you can see, I have a few prompt cards that are still blank. I felt like I needed to "grow with my word" before journaling these cards.

Puffy Hearts!!


I couldn't find the exact ones, but this is what I plan on ordering when I need more:

4x6 Flips by Sn@p!

I love this set of neutral cards, and next time you attend a wedding, you have some cards for that, too! 

I cut down white cardstock to 4x6 for printing cards on my Canon Pixma! Or print digital cards that usually come on an 8.5 X 11 pdf. I actually bought the 90 lb, but it's a little thin, so I'd recommend this:

I like to buy this box of 400 4x6 photo paper for my Canon Pixma:
My new printer!!!:

My favorite tape runner:

This is the exact 6x8 album I am using. It a little brighter aqua blue than shows in this image:

The Simple Stories page protectors are the same size as Becky Higgins!

If you chose to click on any links, I truly appreciate it. I get a small kick-back from Amazon and it's no additional cost to you!


  1. Love this!! My one word for the year is incorporated into my documented Faith journal so I'm not going to make an album just for that. I have gotten somem great ideas for how to artify and journal my word, though!!

    1. What an awesome idea! I thought about doing this in a Midori, but decided it would be a lot of extra work my first year of trying this. Maybe next year! Can't wait to see your stuff! Have you shared it anywhere yet?

  2. Your album is wonderful! I love it!

  3. Your album is wonderful! I love it!

    1. Thanks, Valerie! I'm liking this project. Now, if I can just keep it up!
