I look forward to General Conference so much - and each year I vow to take better notes! However, those notes end up in random notebooks scattered and lost, so I decided to make a dedicated journal to capture the moments and talks that touch me the most. And, to encourage my husband to do the same, I made a version for him too!
★ Full Size: 8.5x11
★ Half Size: 5.5" x 8.5
INCLUDED IN THIS LISTING: This listing includes a front and back cover + interior journaling/note pages in a version "for her" and one "for him" (be sure to peak at all three images above) in BOTH full size and half size! Print one for yourself and for your spouse. Give a set to the families you both Visit and Home Teach... it's also perfect for older children, for YM or YW - or to give to members of the classes you teach! They can be used during conference as you listen... but also can be used AFTER conference to record notes and thoughts as you re-read/study the talks when the Ensign comes out!
ADDING TEXT PRIOR TO PRINTING: Adding text to your PDF before printing is easy! If you have the most current version of Adobe Reader, you can use the "comment" function to insert text boxes where desired. Or, look around online for a free PDF Editor (there are lots)! Simply upload the file, use their tools to insert your text, then download and print!WANT TO ADD TEXT BEFORE PRINTING?
HOW TO ASSEMBLE the half size journals... Print the cover files on white card stock. These images are slightly oversized - which makes trimming them to 8.5x5.5 a perfect (full bleed) cover. Laminate for durability. Next, the interior journaling pages come as a 2 page PDF file. Print the interior pages double-sided. The beauty of this journal is you can add as many interior journaling pages as you'd like so your journal becomes as big or as small as you want. In the samples shown, I printed 25 sheets double-sided, giving me 100 total journaling pages. Once printed, cut your journaling pages in half and assemble with the trimmed/laminated covers. I had mine spiral bound at Staples after printing/trimming at home (or do all the copying trimming there as well). You can also punch and store in a half sized binder if you prefer.
HOW TO PRINT/ASSEMBLE the full size journals... Print the cover files on white card stock. Trim white border off and mount on coordinating card stock. Laminate for durability. Print the "inside" journalling page as many times as you'd like - be sure to print double sided! I'd recommend printing at least 25 pages, but that part is up to you! Then, assemble your pages and have them spiral bound at an office store or simply punch and store in a binder.
