happy new year

Last year, I made a layout about my New Year's resolutions and actually met about 80 percent of those goals. I decided to make another for 2015.

Started with a sketch from My Scraps & More. Papers and stickers are from Something Wonderful by Teresa Collins. Alpha stickers are from Authentique. Smile stamp is Studio G.

My poor husband had a rough year in 2013. The bike incident was the second of two incidences that left him in the ER with broken bones.

Papers are from Chap by American Crafts. The journaling card is from Basic Grey.

daddy loves me

This layout was for a Progressive Challenge at Memorable Seasons in August but I had given up on Step 2. I lose. No points for me.

I finally finished it at a crop in October. I'm slow this year.
I'm pretty sure the papers are from Pink Paislee? I used Spellbinder dies to cut the ornaments, inked the edges, and finished with Diamond Stickles. The diamond shaped die cuts are leftovers from my Cricut days. I used a Micron pen to doodle some detail.

Most papers are from Echo Park All Star Mini Theme. I used a die cut negative from Wendy to pen in the chevron arrows. The ruler is an old rub on from October Afternoon.

air mail

In the days of Skype and Facebook, I thought it would be interesting to document how my parents stayed in touch while my dad served in the Army. Phone calls were very expensive and there was no internet. They made audio tape letters and mailed them back and forth.

Papers are from FarmHouse Paper Company. Bits and pieces from Crate Paper and Basic Grey.
