On the Fifth day of Christmas...

Ok - so it's meant to be 5 gold rings - well there are 5 rings in my project, but they are silver and attached to 5 chipboard tags!
I wanted to make a mini book for my resolutions for 2014. Usually my resolutions about doing less of things - eating less, spending less...etc but I decided that I am going to make next year a year of more. I had lots of ideas - more adventure, more creativity, more sending birthday cards to people and lots more... but I decided to focus on four things - M is for more music, I want to play my saxophone more and get back to the level I was when I was taking my grade exams. O is for organisation - I am a very last minute person and I want to try to be more organised in 2014. R is for rest - I am notoriously bad at staying up late but I know that I function better with lots more sleep so... it's early to bed in 2014. And finally E is for eating - yes, this year I vow to eat more instead of eating less!! So often my first meal of the day is in the evening and by that time I am so hungry I eat rubbish - so I am going to try to eat three proper meals a day - that way I'm hoping they will be healthier meals!

I decided that for a quick 'post-Christmas' project I would use up some papers from my scraps box - I chose some Graphic 45 scraps because I knew they would all go together ok.
I started by covering each side in a different paper, I then sanded the edges and used black ink on the edges to cover them up.

I then cut some flowers from one of the patterned papers to decorate the front cover. I added Thickers for my title and some ribbon to bind the book together...
All I have left to do now is add photos to represent my four resolutions and then I will have a little tag book that I can keep to hand to remind me of my resolutions throughout the year.



  1. You always make Graphic 45 look so good. Really like the "more" idea instead of resolutions (which I don't make!)

  2. I really like the cover of this album. Great way to use up pretty scraps.

  3. Loving all the fussy cutting. Very pretty.
