Is it really December? On the one hand I’m super excited for Christmas but on the other… just where did 2016 go? This week I’m featuring some ideas for starting 2017 with pretty pink. It works for me but of course you could substitute your favourite colour instead.
I know New Year’s Resolutions have a bit of a rep as a waste of time but I think they’re often useful as it allows us to take time to reflect a little on ourselves and maybe think of some areas where we could use a bit of self improvement.
I’ve created some cute little New Year’s Resolution cards that are 3″X 4″ so that they can easily be stored as part of your 2017 Project Life album. Of course you don’t want your resolutions out there for all to see so they have a little cover and are made to slide out when you do want to go back and remind yourself what you wanted to work on this year.
I’ve used some awesome products for these including the gorgeous copper foil printed Petals and Paisleys Specialty DSP, It’s a Celebration stamp set and Tin of Tags stamp set. Did you notice that I changed up the sentiments a little just by using my Stampin’ Write markers to stamp only the letters I wanted. This technique opens up a tonne of opportunity to create your own sentiments!
Once I had finished the pocket cards, I wanted to create a title page for the New Year as well so I set about making a 6″x 8″ page.
I use the little spots and stars stamp (from Holly Jolly Greetings) A LOT for backgrounds and I think they work beautifully for New Year’s sparkle! I’ve stamped in white craft ink on the Sweet Sugarplum background and then used VersaMark with Copper Embossing powder on the vellum circle. Some Blushing Bride Glimmer paper numbers and sequins finish it off.
I hope this gives you some inspiration for your 2017 Project Life album!
