Hello there everyone! It is Andrea here and today I want to share with you a layout I made for the New Year using the fantastic Snow & Cocoa collection! I love this collection! It has been so much fun to use to document and create for Christmastime and I think it is perfect for the New Year too! It is 2017 now and as we begin February and get more and more comfortable with writing the new date and planning for a new year, it is important, I think, to document the resolutions you have made so that you will be reminded of them and rise to meet them not only for this month, but all year long!
Every year for New Year's Eve I write out my resolutions and I am guessing that a lot of you do as well. Snow & Cocoa has so many lovely and versatile patterns and that includes the bold and beautifully simply black and white pattern that I chose to use for the background of my layout. To add a bit more color to my layout, I framed the black and white with a pop of pretty and bright pink!
I chose to make five resolutions that I explained in depth. Keeping the list short helps to keep the layout looking sharp and neat. I printed the resolutions out on some plain vellum and sewed the vellum onto my page, with some sequins and glittered snowflake stickers sprinkled inside. The fun look of the sequins and glitter in the layout also help create a magical quality that I also feel fits the theme of my page.
I decided to add a few snowflakes on top of the vellum as well with a couple of stickers from the sticker sheet and a cool transparency snowflake from the ephemera pack all grouped towards the top of my page.
I added a few extra touches like some other little label stickers and a cute pink and white tag. And to really make my resolutions pop, I used the black thickers from the collection to number and call special attention to each item on my list.
The pics I used to express my resolutions are some cute photo-booth style pics I took with my hubby a while back. I have not had the best of luck these past couple of months with my health, but I am super hopeful that this new year will be a new start for me and I have a lot of faith that the future will be filled with much happiness and much magic!
