Year-End Journaling Ideas to Wrap Up Your Year (Free Printable Prompts!)
HAY, how art you? It is nearly the end of the year, and an annual review is in order.

To accompany the spreads, I made a free printable kit which consists of journal prompts, photo frames and quotes. You can find the download link at the end of this article.

Year-End Journaling Ideas #1:
Top 10 Highlights
The first year-end journaling idea is making a spread to document the top ten highlights of the year. The layout of this spread is simple, with five boxes on each side which can be used to write about the highlight moments. I created two simple collages at the top of each page using the printable prompt as well as a quote cutout, and violà, the spread is completed.
Year-End Journaling Ideas #2:
The second journaling idea is a gratitude spread. On the left, I made a little pocket using vellum paper to hold an envelope which contains a gratitude list. You can find the template for the envelope and gratitude list here!
On the right, I layered a few textured papers and lettered a gratitude quote using a brown Pentel brush sign pen. The spread looks simple and clean and I love how it turned out!
Year-End Journaling Ideas #3:
The third year-end journaling idea is making a spread to record all your favourite stuff from the year. I used two checkered memo sheets, one for digital favourites like movies, dramas and music, and one for lifestyle stuff like food, stationery, and everything else. To add a personal touch, I printed out photos using a Kodak Mini Shot 3 instant photo printer, and added them to the spread.
