This year I am participating in Project 12 by Scrapbook and Cards Today magazine. The idea is simple - 12 layouts for 12 months of the year. Each month they will post a sketch. I just need to find pictures that highlight that month and tell the story.
Here is my January layout based on January sketch. I followed the sketch closely on this one and I think it recaps nicely our January.
Few things I like about this layout - the music sheet patterned paper fits well the picture from the choir concert. The brick colored velvet ribbon is almost the same color as Lila's ice skating dress. I used Jenni Bowlin calendar tag for my title and will continue to do that on the rest of the layouts. The big snowflakes are cut from the silhouette paper by K&Company.Supplies: cardstock (unknown), patterned paper (Martha Stewart(woodgrain), Creative Imaginations(music), Basic Grey(snowflakes), K&Co(big snowflakes), calendar tag (Jenni Bowlin), rhinestone(Martha Stewart), ribbon (Making Memories), border and corner punches (Martha Stewart), cloud scissors (Fiskars), star punch (Fiskars)
The journaling didn't turn out very well. Maybe I will replace it when I will work on the next layout. But maybe not.
