Happy New Year CVS friends! At the beginning of each new year I choose one little word to try and guide what I am striving to achieve (a different version of a New Years resolution started by Ali Edwards). This year I chose the word Progression (not perfection), the anxiety and stress that perfection can cause is now replaced with progression. So here is my layout which is all about my new OLW.

I went back to the beautiful Daydream collection after a month of Christmas scrapping! I have used Garden Variety paper as my background paper because I really can’t get enough of these florals. I add a 10×10 inch white cardstock to the centre and then added some messy machine stitching using a blue thread to help frame it.

I used a cut file to layer on top of the white cardstock, I chose another piece of cardstock which coordinated with the pink hues in the florals. I created a polaroid frame using Sweet Serenity paper, before adhering to my page I created a floral cluster cascading out of the right side of frame using the florals from the die cut ephemera pack.

To finish off this embellishment cluster I added an accessory sticker to my frame, flair and lastly a puffy heart. Next I focused on my title. I cut my word progress using the blue side of Garden Variety paper (Word from Silhouette Design store). I typed ‘not perfection’.

To tie it to the rest of the elements I added a rainbow and flower from the die cut ephemera pack which I added with foam tape and then added the first of the moth die cuts which flows to the circle on my page.

I added moth die cuts around the circle to finish off my page. I also went back and added drops of NUVO jewel drops to the petals and leaves.

Well thats it from me today, thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful week!
