I have a beautiful Noel Mignon Fresh Start kit staring at me right now, but I'm in a creative rut. Just trying to decide how I will document my memories in 2014. I do definitely want to continue Project Life this year. I was not as successful as I would have liked in 2013, but I did cover a decent number of weeks. I take tons of pics so I do think I need to document weekly. I love the new 6 x 8 albums popping up, but I'm pretty sure I need 12 x 12, especially since I really want to focus on this being my main source of documenting 2014. I still plan on maybe taking 4 - 6 special pictures or moments from each month to do individual pages of & keep in a separate album. I'm just stuck on whether I want to do 12 x 12 or 8 1/2 x 11. What are your plans for memory keeping this year? Project Life or traditional scrapbooking? or both?
In the meantime, I have been perusing the new goodies coming out for the Winter CHA. Nothing like
window shopping to help with procrastination :) Here's what has piqued my interest . . .
#1 Jenni Bowlin - I LOVE these gold rub-on stars!! I'll be honest, I NEVER in a million years thought I'd like anything gold, scrapbooking or otherwise :) I'm a silver kind of gal :) But one of Noel Mignon's past kits had a number of gold products in it & I really liked using them on my pages. Stars are a no-brainer & gold, well yes - I'll take that!
#2 I've haven't bought much My Mind's Eye in a while - but I really like this color scheme.
#3 Basic Grey - I've really liked some of their recent collections. I also really like Kelly Purkey's work so this is another no-brainer for me :) LOVE the papers & the embellishments - Mon Ami is right up my alley.
I also really am excited to see their Capture products this go around. I love the look of this sneak peek - a little bit like Sassafras Lass :)
Oh & all these cute little alphas!!
#4 Elle's Studio - I've been a fan of her work for a long time & loved when she started creating papers to go with all her fun tags. The wood veneers she's coming out with her collections are awesome too!!
#5 Simple Stories - I really think I will like using some of the DIY collection for my Project Life - super easy to use & versatile for all types of memories :)
#6 Crate Paper - I haven't bought much of Crate Paper in a while. But I do like the patterns in their new boy line. Also the clear alphas are pretty cool!!
#7 Pink Paislee - I'm impressed this CHA with Pink Paislee!! I like the direction they seem to be headed. They had became a bit flowery & vintage for my taste, so I haven't bought any in a long time. However I do really like the bright, cheery color scheme of their Hello Sunshine!!
#8 Studio Calico - I'll be honest, their papers are not my cup of tea recently, but I do love many of their embellishments. Their new basics line has some must-haves for me like these chipboard hearts & stars and the fun alpha & label stickers!
That's my favs for now!! What are YOU seeing out there that is peeking your scrappy interest??
