I've had an amazing weekend in my craft room - would like to call it a studio cause its more than just "crafts" but feel that sounds pretentious. Anyway, I have been making lots of messes and having a blast. So, I'm hoping I'll have plenty to post throughout this week. Really trying to post regularly if not daily. On the left are the pages for January for One Little Word. You'll notice there are a variety of page protector sizes that Ali has us using. They came in a pack like that from Pink Paisley (I double check that info) thru Scrapbook.com. Back when I was using Creative Memories albums and page protectors I use to use a variety of sizes in those albums and then when I moved to Close To My Heart I got away from it and forgot about doing that. The first page is 5 x 7 and the title page. As you can see my word is Illuminate. The 2nd page is a 9 pocket protector and includes a definition, a quote, a dictionary entry from an old dictionary, why I chose the word I did, synonyms, and a list of what I'm inviting into my life with this word. Ali Edwards started One Little Word as an alternative to resolutions and its been an interesting journey so far and its only been a little over a week. I have a little more to do on both of these pages. On the other side of the title page I need to place a photo of myself. On the 9 pocket page protector I have some blank cards that need some artwork but I'm waiting for the ideas to present themselves to me - I'm not rushing it.
I wish you could see the gold tag and card better - I used 3 different Distress Inks (Tim Holtz's) on them and they have a suede look to them now. I still need to add some art work to the card as I mentioned. For right now I'm just enjoying the way it looks.
