Everyone talks about October/December/Whatever month daily but I wanted something more long term. I am doing a weekly challenge, for 52 weeks, crafting and “scrapbooking” our lives. Journalling what we have been doing and documenting along the way.
Here is my first page using the January PopFizzPaper Planner Kit along with some items from monthly kits in 2015.
The color scheme of this kit is very bold (hence the name be bold) and fitting for New Year’s and goal getting. I chose to pair it with another bright blue cardstock so that the colors stuck out even more.
The first step was making the pocket. If you know anything about me, I love the look of ripped paper. I do this a lot in my pocket letters and wanted to include it here as well. I ripped the top of the paper and ran the chalk ink from the January kit around the sides to make that stand out a little bit more.
Next I added some images that I printed out from our week. This includes a picture of my dog, a show we binge watched and some images from a trip we made down to the strip. I also included a “can’t stop won’t stop” quote strip from the January kit. Because who wants to stop?
I then stamped out the dates using the Heidi Swapp date stamper and chalk ink included with the January kit. I just did this onto regular glossy paper.
I attached that to the back side of the information card included with the January kit as well as some glittery alphas from Michaels. I also decorated a little bit with the washi from the January kit as well as some gold glitter washi from the September kit. I also put down a camera die cut from the January kit.
For the “journaling” part of this, I will be using some tags. A light “library” card type one and a darker brown one from the January kit. I attached a tab to the top and covered them with washi from the January kit to make the tag a bit sturdier and slid them into their little pocket.
Since the back of the information card had information for the January kit on it, I wanted to cover that up. I used the blue cardstock to cover up the words and then affixed one of the journaling cards from the January kit to it making a pocket. I rubbed on some of the inspirational quotes included in the January kit and made a tag to write down some of my 2016 goals and resolutions.
Last but not least, I punched it and put it in my project life album.
The January kit offers such a great inspiration of products used to kick start your 2016.
