Starting The New Year Right!
Happy NEW YEAR!! What better way can you think of to start off a new year and a new decade than with a bit of crafting! And better yet, scrapbooking! It’s Cara here today and I am so excited to get this year started, it’s going to be a year FULL of paper crafting.
I absolutely adore the Crafty Girl collection and I was already designing this layout in my head as I went through my box of goodies. I had barely shut the door on the mailman and I was running to my desk, excited to play with it all. Crafting has always been my favourite and these are my happy colours.
I recently went to a planner event in the Netherlands so I printed a few of my favourite photos for this layout. The chair and decorations at the venue actually matched the Crafty Girl collection! It’s like they knew ;) I trimmed the photos ever so slightly so that I could line the three of them up across the page, and still be able to have some of that pretty blue paper peeking out.
It’s rare when I love EVERYTHING in a collection, but this line is so amazing, every last sticker gets me giddy with excitement. I was happy to have planner event photos to help me narrow down my choices of what embellishments to use. I simply chose all planner related things and I’m saving the rest for other projects. I started with the layers of patterned paper and then that chipboard CREATE was the easiest title.
The glitter card was a fun call back to an event where I met a lot of these women for the first time. There was red glitter everywhere and it became an inside joke. I may or may not have squealed when I first saw this card ;)
One of my favourite die cuts is that little planner! I added the dates, the ‘planner girl’ sticker and a couple of teeny flowers to give it that planner addict touch.
Again, Happy New Year! I hope that you are able to carve a little crafty time into your day today!
