I wanted to share two layouts I created in thinking about the new year.

This first one is about my word for the year - hope. This is the first time I have picked out a word for the year (inspired by Ali Edwards). I wasn't planning on it initially but as I was scrapping this layout and writing the journaling - I realized that I was picking a word without meaning to! The photo from this layout is from Lake Powell in Arizona - it happened by accident that I was trying to take a picture of a rock wall but the sunburst got in the way! But I thought of it right away when I started scrapping with this kit by
Elise Hansen and Nikki Epperson - Resolution.

This second one is more fun and light hearted. I decided to pick out a bunch of secondary words to help me focus on my main word for the year (which feels a little abstract to work with daily and set goals although it captures the spirit of all of it). I used a template by Cathy Zielske and a fun funky kit by Amy Sumrall appropriately named Funny Flowers.

I plan to look at these layouts monthly - also a new goal for me - to refocus and reflect. Here goes!

Peak at my Tools

I took this picture to show my tools - for my project for the Hybrid Bootcamp happening now at ScrapMatters. I've got my scissors and my super easy double stick tape and my new presentation paper.

The Bootcamp is really amazing so far with lots of fantastic information. Way exceeds what I was even expecting. If you've thought of hybrid trying hybrid but don't know where to start, it is really well organized and breaks everything down. But - beware of craft store enabling!!!

I'll post what I made with these tools tomorrow!

February DST Hot Product

Hello my name is... Heather. But really this post is about my hybrid project for DST this month. It's a bookmark keepsake box. Perfect as a gift for any booklover. It is a wonderful way to present handcrafted bookmarks and it's a fun way to keep them and other bookmarks in a handy spot. When I made this box, I decided on a size for the bookmark and then made the box to fit around the bookmarks - so it could be adapted for any shape.

I made the bookmarks and the box using the kit Hello my name is... by Digital Scrapbooking Studio. The girls as Stone Accent Studio have reinvented themselves and want to reintroduce themselves. This is me - waving back and saying hi!
