New Years Eve and Title Page

I'm starting the year off with good intentions of getting that 2016 Project Life album started! The December Kit is perfect for New Year's, a 2016 title page, AND getting your goals recorded! 
I'm starting this album off like a minimalist. I dig it. I always love seeing it in others' albums. It really lets those cards and photos shine. 

Just added those gold alphas by Studio Calico to one card.

And added that American Crafts "i I love you" washi to a photo of my husband and I. 

Here is my title page! Yay! Um, I still need to wait half a year to get our annual summer family photos and then I'll add two. I'm liking the natural wood 2016 just like it is. Only time will tell whether I keep it plain or not...

I am thinking of using these cards in my One Little Word album. Do you have a word for this year? This is my first time doing this project that Ali Edwards leads. It is fascinating to me. I think my word chose me because it is the only one that has been on my mind. "Enjoy"

  1. Ms Holly,
    First I would like to say how happy I am to have come across this page and blog. I absolutely love scrap booking and painting..basically any DIY crafts also! I moved to Nebraska two years ago to be with the love of my life and to receive care at UNMC in Omaha..but because I have been sick these last two years while being here..it's been hard to meet new friends...and it's hard for me it seems even when I'm feeling ok...I struggle with anxiety and PTSD which when in public places...I tend to feel like crawling into the nearest hole..I am grateful though for having this trial for I probably would have never gotten into the scrapbooking like I have. It allows me to escape from myself and shake off all the junk that the disease tells me I have...Layers upon layers...which form a hard wall and exterior shell... blocking the real Cassie and all the joy and light heartedness I used to have radiatung from my inner being...but when I work with my art..no matter the project..I get to escape temporarily to another place where there is no pain and my scars are no longer visible...inside or out. And I feel as if I experience a certain amount of healing while there...
    So my love for scrapbooking and passion I have for all similar art...not only allows me to experience the beauty from other individuals and their work...but the chance to once again heal and explore and enjoy a life with no pain... Even if it's just for a little while.

    1. Oh Cassie! Thanks so much for the kind words. I am so glad you are finding your art. It is such good therapy for us all. Take care, Holly
