Hi friends! I am so excited to be here and to share my first project with you (I still can’t believe this real)!! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and are looking forward to 2022 as much as I am!
Every year, since 2011, I have completed a yearly album documenting all the big and small moments in our lives. Documenting the everyday, small moments, just brings me so much joy. I have gone from documenting weekly to more of a monthly approach as our lives have changed over the years. For my albums I always create a title page to start the album out, and I just knew that the January 2022 kit and add-ons would be perfect for this. The colors are just so bright and happy—a perfect way to start out my 2022 album!
I love how all the products coordinate and make it easy to put pages together! I had fun adding a little stitching to some of the tags, as well as creating a custom tag from one of the papers in the Love You Paper Stack. I thought the word phrases on the paper were perfect for my title page.
One of my favorite things that I have done the last few years is to add my goals for the upcoming year to my title page. It keeps them front-and-center so that they stay fresh on my mind during the year. I made a flip-up using the striped 4 x 6 inch tag (cut down to make it 3 x 4 inch) from the January 2022 Kit, cardstock and washi tape. The colors in that 4 x 6 inch tag were the inspiration for the page. Flip-ups are so easy to do, and it adds more space to get some documenting in.
I am so looking forward to filling my album with all the new memories we will make in the coming year, as our very first grandbaby is due in July! Happy crafting, friends!
