New Year: Word for the Year

@gail_lindner @pinkpaislee Create a layout documenting goals or intentions for the new year!

Who else chooses a “word” for their year? I do, and have done for many years now! And it’s also become a sort-of “tradition” for me to create a layout documenting this word! Usually I know what my word is before the calendar ticks over. For me, creating a layout based on it is the perfect way to state my intentions for the new year. Do you want to see what my word for 2017 is?

pp New Year Layout 1It’s LOVE. For myself and for my family.

pp New Year Layout 2I really need to tell you where the inspiration came from for this layout! While browsing on Pinterest as us crafters tend to do, a photo popped up of some New Year’s Eve party decor. I thought it would be so fun to try to translate that into a scrapbooking layout design. I wanted to use the Moonstruck collection as the colors and sentiments really suited the mood and feeling of the layout.

Across the top of my layout I added a couple of lines of small circles that I punched from patterned paper. Once I added a row of stitching through the centre of them they did start to look a bit like a stitched circle banner.

pp New Year Layout 3What’s a party without tissue paper pom poms hanging from the ceiling? I recreated the look of these on my layout by die cutting several sizes of scalloped circles from patterned paper, layering them, and roughing up the edges. I added a line of stitching to “hang” them from the top of my layout.

pp New Year Layout 4I used large black acetate numbers from C’est La Vie for my ‘2017’. Puffy stickers, gold rub ons and lots of layers behind my photo finished off the bottom portion of the layout perfectly!

pp New Year Layout 5You just never know when or where inspiration will strike! I will never look at styled party decor the same again! Haha! And I’m definitely ready to welcome in a new year. I have a feeling of excitement not knowing what the next year will bring but with definite guidance from my little word!
