January Scrapbook Page...2013

Do you have any crafting goals for the new year?  Mine are to get back to my first crafting love...scrapbooking and to learn a new skill...sewing.  I have the best Santa, and he bought me a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas.  I'll have to tell you about this wonderful machine in another post, but it is going to help me with that first goal.

Doggone that Pinterest.   They just make everything look so easy...even sewing.  Now, don't look for me to make any articles of clothing.  I just want to know how to #1 thread my machine and #2 sew a straight line, but I'm looking forward to making a few things I've seen on the web.  Sewing on cards and scrapbook pages is also really popular, and I want to know how to do that.

I enjoy making a small scrapbook each year to highlight the happenings of the Hobbies each month.  Here is an 8x8 layout that I've made for January.  It's all ready to insert a couple of pictures.

Materials Used:  All are Stampin Up unless otherwise noted.
Paper:  Not Quite Navy, Marina Mist, Peach Parfait, Whisper White, Black, Polka Dot Parade DSP
Ink:  Marina Mist

Embellishments:  Marina Mist ribbon

Thanks for stopping by my blog!  I'd love to hear about your crafting goals for the new year.
