I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and New Year! Obviously, I have taken some time off over the last year from blogging. In late 2014 I decided to leave Scrap-Mart and take a different direction. I was offered a position with a new company as an Office Manager. I will say it took me longer to get used to working 40+ hours a week again. But, I'm settled in and ready to get back to my crafting!
Here's a layout I created of Shelby at a retreat I attended back in November.
This layout came together rather quickly. I started with some layered pieces of Stampin Up! cardstock and added 2 3x4 pocket page cards and a pocket. Then, I printed the pic with my Selphy (my BEST purchase of 2015!!). The scallop border was actually created by using a 2" circle punch and trimming the circles down. I added some hand journaling, something I'm trying to incorporate more into my projects, and finished it off with a few sticker embellishments.
Here's a closer view of some of the detail...
I love the glitter on the top card! We had an unfortunate incident that ended up with my baby girl's head getting shaved. So I took her to get her ears pierced (again!) and this pic was taken just after she got them.
So, do you guys have any crafty resolutions for 2016? For me, I just want to create! Even though I remained on the design team for Want2Scrap last year I don't feel like I really got to create. So that is my goal. No specific numbers or projects. Just be crafty!
