project 12 (january)

every year, i tell myself to create an album that summarizes our activities every month.  and every year i fail in my attempt.  either i get too lazy to even start it or i do other projects instead.

then this year, i stumbled upon project 12.

i first read about it at backporchmemories.com. there was a link to scrapbook & cards today and there was a full explanation on how this was started by davinie fiero.  read more about it here. following a sketch by becky fleck, i decided that this is it!  this is the project that will help me finish that yearly album i wanted.

let me share though this wasn't easy for me.  i was never a double-page scrapper. it's always a single page layout for me.  it took me 3 nights before i was able to finish it and i liked the result.  it's a simple layout but it served it's purpose.

materials used:  cardstock - fabriano; patterned paper, die-cut - scenic route; felt elements, alpha - american crafts; chipboard - junkitz; buttons - making memories, autumn leaves; punchers - stampin' up; ink - colorbox; glitter glue; dmc floss; lace trim
