Well Hello there & welcome to Sarah Hurley 365, Claireliz here, how are you?
I'm going to attempt Documented 365 this year, I've decided to use a mix of page layouts including normal 12x12, then 2 different sets of pages protectors with 3x4 & 4x6 pockets. I've never used pockety type page protectors before so it'll be interesting adapting my scrapping style to suit them.
I'm the sort of scrapbooker that if I'm making an album on a particular theme, project or class then I feel it needs an intro page, it's part of the story after all.
So this the page that I'm using as my intro page and it records my goals for 2014 & the plan is to check in with them every now & then & see how I'm getting on.
I knew I wanted this to be a bright colourful layout & I wanted some glittery sparkle too.
I started by splattering yellow, hot pink, aqua & lime green spray ink onto the white cardstock, then I doodled a loopy border around the edge.
I cut a frame from the pink polka dot paper and an arrow from the turquoise chevron paper both from Sarah's My Favourite Things Kit & inked them both around the edges with Black Soot Distress ink.
I used a little spotty envelope from the kit for my journaling which is written on a tag & lists my goals for 2014. I'm careful when choosing my goals,I always make sure that a couple of them are easily attainable that way if I don't achieve any of the others I don't feel guilty about it. Some of my goals for this year are: Save money, Take more photos, Blog more often and Create more, these are actually quite easy, but they are still things I need to do. Slightly harder ones are Work on our home - which depends on our finances. And improve my cooking - which will take a lot of work on my part and possibly a bit of effort for DD & Hubs if they are going to survive my culinary learning curve - okay you can stop laughing now :D The envelope was attached to the page under the pink frame which is attached with 3D foam pads.
To sparkle up my title I sprayed some DIY Thickers with gold shimmer ink then coated in gold glitter glue, but you can do this with most styles of Thickers using either spray ink or paint to change the colour, it's one of my favourite techniques.
I felt it still needed a bit more so I dotted some orange, yellow, blue, pink and green buttons all over the layout & a little strip of washi tape under the 2014. I was just packing everything away when I found a little bag of stars inbetween the papers and decided to stick those around the page in amongst the buttons.
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed my layout & I'm looking forward to seeing all of your Documented 365 pages this year.
