Year >> Noted!

Today I am sharing with you a special project for the January Constant Campaign, Year>>Noted.

This adorable kit comes with or without the mini album, as well as some fantastic gold stickers, cute paper and a C sized stamp set- what great value!

There are 23 consultants on this blog hop sharing their Year>>Noted creations with us. If you have come from Jacquelin's Blog then you are on the right track! If you get lost you can head to Melinda's blog for a full list of participants.

For my album, I decided to write out some New Year Goals based on questions I discovered through Pinterest. These questions really got me thinking, and I wanted to document my responses to work on throughout the year.

I typed the questions and answers onto the computer, then printed them out on cardstock supplied in the Year>>Noted Kit.

The front cover was decorated with some of the Year>>Noted Paper, as well as using the matching stamp set, gold stickers, zip strip and some gold shimmer trim.

The title page reminds me to be amazing this year- I added some more of the Year..Noted paper and cardstock as well as the gold triangles. The sentiments are from the January SOTM, I stamped the Hello in Sorbet ink, then rolled the edges in Desert Sand ink to give a two toned effect.

The first page uses a retired stamp set that goes well with my goal of using less social media, and I also stamped some chevron arrows in Glacier ink on the journalling card.

This page uses more of the Year>>Noted paper, as well as a plane image that I stamped and fussy cut to add to the page.

Another simple page documenting my need to get back into sewing, using a needle image from a retired Stamp of the Month.

One of my favourite photos in this book, I matted it with Year>>Noted paper and added some more of the gold stickers.

More paper and gold stickers to embellish this page of me and my Dad.

This arrow stamp is from the January SOTM as well, reminding me to send letters to my second family in Chile.

Some gold shimmer trim was all that was needed on this page.

I love the polka dot paper from this Year>>Noted paper, and it went well with the polka dots on my photo. I also added some triangle studs.

My most important goal for this year is to spend more quality time with my kids- something that should be easier if I do limit my social media! The banner on the photo was created using stamps from the Year>>Noted set, and I also used more of the zip strip and a gold sticker.

The last page is meant for me to tick off each goal as I achieve it. Some will be a year long process, but overall I hope that on December 31st 2015 I will have a full page of ticks! The sentiment is from a retired Hostess stamp set, but I thought it went very well with what I am trying to accomplish this year- being more generous, more mindful and more adventurous.

Now on to Donna's Blog for more inspiration! This Year>>Noted pack is only available until 31st January, so contact your consultant (or click here) if you would like your own kit.
