A new year brings a clean slate and a chance to start fresh. I love setting goals and visualizing the year ahead early on so I can be inspired. Every year I make a vision board to help me with this. It’s fun and really makes me focus on what I want to accomplish during the year. I like it better than just writing down goals because I’m such a visual person. If you’re making one too, you’ll love my FREE vision board printables. I put together 8 pages of inspirational words and phrases you can cut out and use on your vision boards. I’m using them on mine!
How to make a Vision Board
If you’ve never made a vision board and don’t know where to start, let me help. It’s pretty easy and you can make your board as simple or deluxe as you like. All you need are pictures, magazines, newspapers, stickers, cut-outs, basically any crafting materials that you want. Use images, words and any embellishments you choose to create a visual representation of your yearly goals. It’s like scrap-booking!
The idea is to take your goals and turn them into a clear picture you can look at everyday and feel inspired.

Here is mine for 2021:
I used a small poster board for mine but you can make a vision board on anything. I’ve seen them on planters, inside planners, on big poster boards, on cork boards, you can get as creative as you want!
For me, it was easier to just grab magazines and rip or cut out images as I saw them but you can plan ahead if that’s more your style. This year I’m going to do it a little differently and write down my goals first. Then, I’ll search images and clippings in order so I’m more organized. I’m also making mine in my planner this year since I’ll be carrying it around everywhere. Check out my how to video reel over on my Instagram page.
