Since the month of February is now over, I am working on decorating my February monthly spread in my planner. I can't wait to share that with you but first, I need to share my final pages in January's section. I had so much fun making these pages!
I looked through my phone to find all my January photos and they were mostly just random pics without a story, perfect for 2x2 squares!
"Happy Day" square from from planner kit by Heidi Swapp -- "Hello 2015" and pink
heart circle from Elle's Studio January Kit -- patterned paper by Crate Paper -- font: Galliard
Here's the back side:
"Laugh Love Repeat" and "Noted" square from planner kit by Heidi Swapp -- XOXO from Heidi Swapp
Project Life kit -- Memories sticker from Heidi Swapp sticker sheet -- patterned paper by Crate Paper
Note to self: Take more pictures of yourself, Miss Tracie.
I looked for a January picture I might do a 6x8 layout about and the one that stood out to me was this of my desk after I cleaned it off one night. This was just a random picture I snapped with my phone but as I looked at it, I began to think of how it represents what I want for myself in 2015. I want to spend time at this desk creating, making pretty stuff and documenting my memories.
I printed the photo out and using some new gold foil cardstock, I cut a title on my Silhouette Cameo! I love, love, love how this turned out!
patterned paper by Heidi Swapp and Crate Paper -- YOU + ME = HAPPINESS from
Elle's Studio January Kit -- gold cardstock by Jen Hadfield Home Made for Pebbles --
gold glitter tape from Heidi Swapp Wanderlust collection -- pink
heart very old chipboard piece -- word stickers at bottom by Heidi Swapp --
The colors on this were a little hard to get in a photo...this shows the shine of the foil better...
This will serve as a reminder every time I see it that my primary goal for this year is to create. On the back side of this, I added a typed list of my "15 Goals for 2015." I made the list in January but when I typed them up, I realized I had completed 7 of my 15 goals already and it was only March 1st!! I was giddy!! Just a note...the title was made with a file by Silhouette by Sophie Gallo - Design ID #33927. I love it! Well worth my 99 cents.
The best part is I love how happy they look in the planner...
The pink behind the layout on the right is the February monthly tabbed page. I love how great it goes with the layout I made and I did not plan that at all. :) I am trying to stay in a similar color scheme with this entire planner but if I have a random photo that has red (as I did on the back of the pocket page), I'm not going to fret. Life is full of color!
I actually gathered my favorite patterned paper in this color scheme together earlier this week so that once I sat down to work, I would have a limited number of choices to make. It worked like a charm! It was very easy for me to look through my paper and embellishments and make a decision.
One of my goals for 2015 is to scrap faster!! :)
Hope you enjoyed January's final pages. I will share my February spread next Monday! I will be back this Wednesday with some stamping experiments to go along with this week's Scrap Gals Podcast.
Have a lovely Monday my friends!
