Let the adventure begin and My word for the year January 20, 2016 07:00
Do you make resolutions or choose a word for the year? What kind of goals do you make as a new year begins? Ever since I heard about choosing a word, as opposed to a full on list of resolutions, I've gone gung-ho on the idea. And, each year I create either a scrapbook page or some other type of decor piece that focuses on my word.
This year, my word is REJOICE. I'm even using the "nickname" of this word - joy. One of the ways I am remembering and exercising this word is by continuing to do what I love - and that includes scrapbooking!
Here is the page I created (and then we'll chat about the cut files used):
I love these kinds of pages because I literally just pull out all my favorite things. No worry about manufacturer and what is what. I also decided to go pretty simple with the cut files. How cool does that white on kraft look??? It really does pop and helps to complete my overall design.
I just love the font of the title - Let the Adventure Begin. Which is so fitting for a page like this!
I purposefully left the title partially coming off the page. This was part laziness and part purposeful. I'm not sure the technical artsy term for doing something like this but, I do like the look for whatever reason. :)
Here is another close up of the circle year. You'll notice I trimmed part of it off to fit up against the paper.
Do you love these cut files as much as I do? Head over to the Just Nick shop and grab your own! Here are the ones that I used:
