Scrappers New Year Resolutions

I found this great article on-line with scrapper's New Year's Resolutions. I thought it was a great idea, so here are some that I came up with and some from BellaOnline. Michelle from BellaOnline also had the great idea of printing your resolutions out and hanging them on your refrigerator, so you can be reminded of them daily.

Scrapper's New Year's Resolution No 1:
I will journal or blog twice a week. This is a great way to record my thoughts and have journaling for future layouts.

Scrapper's New Year's Resolution No 2:
I'll set aside at least 30 minutes a day to do something creative or inspiring: working on a layout, planning a new layout, paging through a scrapbook magazine, reading the latest articles.

Scrapper's New Year's Resolution No 3:
I'll try something new in my scrapbooking. More digital scrapbooking.

Scrapper's New Year's Resolution No 4:
I will sign up for a mini-book class at Scrap-n-Stamp.

Scrappers New Year's Resolution No 5:
I will go through all my digital pictures and print what I need for my daughter's Scrapbook.

Scrapper's New Year's Resolution No 6:
On my birthday, I will treat myself to something I've always considered an extravagant luxury.

Scrapper's New Year's Resolution No 7:
Instead of just thinking about it, I'll post comments on the Scrap-n-Stamp Blog.

Scrapper's New Year's Resolution No 8:
I'll finish my daughter's first year scrapbook.

Scrapper's New Year's Resolution No 9:
I will join a fun online scrapbooking community.

Scrapper's New Year's Resolution No 10:
I'll scrapbook more!

Here's to accomplishing some of your resolutions. Happy New Year from the Girls at Scrap-n-Stamp!!

Perfect Holiday Gift

Are you still trying to find a Christmas gift for someone special? Well today I have the perfect website for you. All the items are handmade and you can find cute gifts from the comfort of your own home. Check it out: www.etsy.com

Another great gift idea is to make a pack of Birthday and Thank You cards. I do this for my mom, and she love's it. The cards are always better than the store bought one's and it's always nice to have them on hand. We have clear card boxes at the store to put them in.

Only 17 more shopping days left......

Happy 30th Birthday Deniz!!

My wonderful Husband is 30 today, finally!! I know I will always be older than him, but at least we are both in our 30's now. I wanted to make him a card for his Birthday, but as usual I waited until the last day to start, so I went through my scrap paper and found this golf paper I had used for Father's day. I think it turned out pretty good considering it was all scraps.
