Feb. 2016 VT Handout

Feb. 2016 Visiting Teaching Handout

Happy February everyone!  

It is time for the Feb. 2016 Visiting Teaching Handout for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  It looks like the messages for this year are going to be from “The Family A Proclamation To The World”.  This month’s lesson is titled, “Marriage is Ordained of God”.

I chose to use the quote from Sister Bonnie L. Oscarson, about how “If it is the Lord’s plan, it should also be our plan.”Feb. 2016 VT Handout

I chose to use a strawberry theme for this month, so…

Feb. 2016 VT HandoutI thought that it would be fun to just give a strawberry lip gloss and some strawberry gum for my little handout.

Here are the free printable handouts:

Feb-2016-VT-handoutAs usual, they are formatted to a 4 x 6 size.  You can print your own or send them out to your favorite photo processing center.  To print as a jpeg image, right click over the image and go to “save image as”   click on that, then save in a folder.  You can print from there.Feb-2016-VT-blankHere is the blank card for those of you that would like to translate, or for those of you that need a card, note, invite, or to make a cute list! :)

For those of you that would like the PDF download, just click on the links below:

So that is the Feb. 2016 Visiting Teaching Handout…There are lots of fun ideas to go with this handout:

strawberry and toasted almond barkYou could make some of this yummy Strawberry and Toasted Almond Bark!  Just be warned this stuff is addicting!  :)

Or How about Heavenly Filled Strawberries?

You could always do a fun box of chocolate dipped strawberries or some mini Strawberry Cream Pies!There are many different strawberry flavored candies, ice cream, lotions, lip gloss, and gums.  So let your imagination run wild with what you might like for a small treat or trinket to go with this handout...but as always…it is the visit, not the handout that is the important thing!!!  Make sure the sisters you visit know how much you love them and how much you care about them!


I will be doing another 40 day conference challenge book mark in February.  I am hoping to have it out soon enough that those of you that need to make copies will have plenty of time to do that before the actual challenge starts on February 16th!

I have also had several request to get these visiting teaching handouts earlier than the first day of the month.  I can only say that I will try…I usually get the message just a few days before, then I have to design the cards and do my handout.    But I will attempt to get them a day or two earlier if possible. :)

Happy Visiting this Month!

  3. Looking forward to this challenge. Been waiting for it for a long time. Thank you for all you do, and know it is appreciated.

  4. Hi Rita,

    I love your darling printables. I don’t want to “steal” your ideas but how did you learn to make these cute printables? I have been wanting to learn for years and I just dont know where to start or what program is the easiest to use? I have photo shop and a lot of digital papers I have purchased in the past but I don’t know what or how to start?
    I did subscribe to your email and hoped you could help me.

    1. Paula, I started with a program called scrapbook Max. It is very user friendly. I buy most of my images from http://justsoscrappy.blogspot.com/. I have a commercial use license to use the images on the blog. I mostly just taught myself by “playing” with the program to figure out all the different buttons. Another program that I have used is my “silhouette” cutting machine. You can print anything that you create on that program also. There are several different tutorials online on how to use the silhouette. The one that I used/purchased is from kerribradford.com. I hope this helps a little bit. Good luck! Digital designs are fun to make!

      1. Thank you so much for taking the time to answer. I am going to look into this right now!
        You are very talented and I just love your stuff!!
        Thank you again.

  9. I just wanted to give you a big thank you shout for the printables you do each month. I just think they are great and the ladies I VT do too!! You are incredibly talented with your designs and for me, who wouldn’t know how to begin to make one, appreciate all your time and effort into making them.

    1. Connie, Thank you so much for your kind comment. I appreciate your taking the time to write! I love it when someone can use one of my ideas, it makes me happy! :)

  10. I love your designs for Visiting Teaching. My ladies love them also. You have such wonderful ideas I am wondering if you have ever done anything with your granddaughters for their Mothers for Mother’s Day. I work with the Activity day girls and want to do something awesome for them to make for their Mothers. Been looking on pinterest but nothing jumps out or is cost prohibitive. Thank you, Gloria

    1. Gloriq, I have done several sewing projects with my granddaughters and I am just starting one that might work for your activity day girls. I am teaching one of my granddaughters how to cross stitch and she is going to make a pillow out of it. You could do a cute “MOM” pillow for your girls. There are several paper crafting ideas that you can do from making paper flowers to a mini scrapbook for mom for Mother’s Day. I will have a tutorial on the blog with the cross stitch pillow after my granddaughter completes hers. Hope this helps, Rita
