Ring In the New Year!

Hello and welcome to another fun blog hop! Today I'm ringing in the new year with a great group of crafters - the entire lineup is posted below, so be sure to visit everyone for some inspiration.

If you've been here before, you may know that I mostly scrapbook in two-page layouts, which sometimes leaves me struggling for leading and end pages for each year's album. So this hop inspired me to plan ahead for a change, and I made this layout for New Year's Eve before I even took the pictures.

I went with a simple layout, using a sketch pattern from Make It From Your Heart Vol. 2 from Close To My Heart. The three spaces will each hold a 3x3 photo. I used that size so I can add more than 3 photos if I need to using some Flip Flaps

I cut the champagne flutes from vellum using the Cricut Artistry cartridge, and the champagne is cut from the same pattern paper I used for the photo mats. I added a gold puffy sticker for the "clink".

For my title, I used a coordinating sticker from the kit for Celebrate. Then I cut New Year's Eve with Artistry, again using that same pattern paper to tie everything together.

I cut a journaling card from one of the sheets in the kit and rounded the top corners so it would match the chipboard phrase I wanted to use. I adhered it right at the bottom edge of the page to ground it, then added the chipboard and a gold puffy sticker.

Thanks so much for checking out my project! If you're interested in any of the products I used, I have a photo shopping list at the bottom of the post linking to my website. But be sure to continue the hop and visit all of these inspiring blogs today!
