Hi, Everyone! Jana Eubank here. I love the start of a New Year and the opportunity it gives me to reflect on my life. This year, I wanted to create a page featuring my goals for 2017. I loved the calendar paper included in the Everyday Memories Mini Theme, and knew it would make the perfect background for this page!
I created the year in my title by using the numbers from the Days of the Month paper. I trimmed them in narrow blocks and then added a mini staple to the top of each one. I used an electronic die cutting machine to cut the word "goals."
The clock, camera, and "Notes" card were hand-trimmed from the Journaling Cards paper. I used the solid colors of other journaling cards and the leaves from the Flower #4 Die Set to cut out the leaves.
I then used my computer to print of my journaling into strips. A cluster of sticker elements in the top right corner points to the journaling.
I added the photo to one of the 4x6 Cards from the Journaling Cards paper. I left the bottom edge longer so that it resembles an instant photo. At the top and bottom I added stickers, and a couple of paper clips.
Documenting my goals with a layout helps me to internalize and focus on my plans. It would be fun to create another page at the end of the year reflecting on what has happened and how I felt about the efforts I had made towards the goals I set at the beginning of the year.
Do you document your New Year's resolutions in your scrapbooks? Give it a try!
