49 Our New Bookplates & a Freebie For You!

Did you know that a special someone has a birthday coming up really soon?  Any guesses as to who that might be?

No need to send me sweet notes and flowers.  It's not me.

It is Dr. Seuss!

My kids are pretty excited about this because it means they get to celebrate all week long at school this week and next.  They wear fun hats, they eat treats and read lots and lots of their favorite books.  They even get to have mom to join in the fun and read to their class.  It's quite a jolly time for the Joneses.

Peyton's teacher said he could bring in as many Dr. Suess books as he wanted.  Guess how many he picked?


I am excited that he is excited, however, not so excited at the thought of losing any of our favorite reads.  Time to get labeling!


I whipped up some book plate labels so we could just write in our names and pop them inside the cover of our books.  I created them so they weren't age specific, I would totally rock these labels in my own personal books, wouldn't you?



Well, now you can!

  1. You are SO good at making things pretty! Can't wait until you have the PDF format all worked out because I'm 100% using these on my books! And I have like 200 of them.

    I've been looking forever for something cute and simple to label my books, so THANK YOU, for making these!


    You're a genius!

  5. I can't wait for the PDF either! I see lots of familiar Dr. Seuss books. ;) My son's fave is the Oh Say Can You Say Dinosaur and the space one. There is also a map one that we have that he likes, as well as the old classics. Last spring at the MN Zoo, they had a bunch of the Dr. Seuss characters (bronze figurines) scattered around. http://momma-paparazzi.blogspot.com/2012/02/dr-seuss.html

    2. I bought a 12 pack in assorted colors of the Sharpie Ultra Fine Tip pens. I keep them in a cup on the top shelf of the cabinet where I have my calendar posted. This way they are always accessible to update the calendar and out of reach for my son who would then also want them as his very own. Doesn't matter how many markers they have, they always want what mom has. :)

  9. Thanks for the kid friendly book plate labels! Now we won't have to use address labels anymore! :)

    My kids both celebrated Dr. Suess' birthday week in school, too! Here's a link to a post I just did the day my youngest got to dress as his favorite character... The Lorax! Enjoy!

  10. I am a newer follower to your blog and am loving all of your organization ideas. What a dreamy blog and perfect past time for my type A self. ;-) Thanks for sharing the book labels. I'm sure my boys will be needing to use these in a couple of their books soon. Wonder if they will work on my daughter's clothes that she is always borrowing out... (j/k)
    Thanks! Kelly

  16. Quick Question- What software do you use to make the labels? I know you design tons of cool stuff (I've stalked your Etsy a bit), but I wondered what program you use to make them!

    Thanks for all the great organizing ideas!

  29. We just got done playing at a Dr. Suess birthday party. My mom's school threw a party, and my son loved it! The principal even dressed up as the Cat in the Hat. I am loving the labels! Thank you so much! As a teacher my mom is always loaning out her books, and sometimes not getting them back. It would take forever, but maybe I can label her books for her now :)

  36. Hi Jenn!!

    What was the font you used? I tried to download the publisher version but I don't have the font! I wanted to use type in the name. I have an aversion with my handwriting.

    Very beautifully designed!
