Happy New Year!!


Today the Inspired Stamps Design Team is sharing a New Year project.  At the end of every year, it's a good time to reflect on the year that is ending, as well as to make plans or resolutions for the New Year, what we hope to achieve, change, focus or work on.  With this in mind, I made a little album/notebook which can be kept in the bag with lots of pockets and lined pages, to record what my thoughts for 2012.

The book measures 4"x4", and I've used the coasters (which Antoinette kindly sent) as the album covers.  For the pages, I used some notecards cut to size and adhered with patterned papers. The corners are rounded using the 3/8" Corner Chomper.  I made little tabs for the pages using leftover papers.  The patterned papers are also from the pack Antoinette sent.

The image and Scripture verse on the cover is from the Inspired Stamps set Be Still Silhouettes.  I stamped the image and verse on watercolour paper and heat embossed it.  Then I added the colours using Distress Inks with perfect pearls and spritzed some Glimmer mists for added shimmer.

Here are some photos of the Album pages:

I'll be back in January for the Inspired Stamps sneak peek.  Have a Safe and Blessed New Year!!
