Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year!!! I've spent the first day of the 2013 year working on my cover page for Project Life :) I used THIS page protector layout from Echo Park. Here is!


This 4x6 card is from Simple Stories Sn@p! and it's a FREE download. How cool is that? I printed it out and added the wooden veneer people, from Studio Calico.


I love it! This is a photo of my hubby and I taken on Christmas Day. I want to keep my album mostly flat; so I added a digital journaling element using www.picmonkey.com. The heart banner is from Bo Bunny "Love Letters" and attached with my new Tiny Attacher by Tim Holtz :)


I created the "2013" title using Echo Park patterned paper scraps cut down to 3x4. I die cut the numbers in black and white to create an offset shadow. I ran the white layer through my Cuttlebug using the Seeing Spots folder for a little something extra.


Couldn't leave out "our baby" Jax on the first page. I used another Bo Bunny flag, stamped with a pawprint from Paper Smooches and attached with a tiny staple.


I also used my "Alphadot" Paper Smooches stamps to create my "Project Life" card. The "life" is die cut using Ali Edwards' font and layered on this awesome days of the week paper from Echo Park's "Today's Story". A little washi gives another pop of color, too.


There you have it! Page one. Done. :) Thanks for stopping by today! Stay tuned for week one's page and other layouts, too. 2013 is going to be a creative year!

Are you starting Project Life too? Leave a link so I can check it out.. thanks!!
