While I am not one to make resolutions for the new year, I do like to reflect over the previous year and think about the upcoming year in January. I read a book last year called The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin, which inspired me this new year to try to conciously pay attention to the blessings in life that make me happy as this year starts. My Pink Stamper has a challenge to make a something for yourself or someone else on the theme of "a fresh clean start for the new year".
I made a tri-fold mini album using Fabulous Finds with my two leftover half sheets of paper and stickers from the Echo Park Life is Good collection. I plan to frequently change up the items I tuck in here, which may be small pictures, quotes, or notes from my kids and husband for my little happiness project.
I used the tri-fold 2 option on Fabulous Finds cut at 6 inches, which has little flaps cut out. The trick, I discovered, is to cut one tri-fold 2 with all the cut outs and one tri-fold 2 cut on blackout. The one with the cut outs goes on the inside. You need double sided paper for this, since the back side of the blackout cut will show when the flaps of the inside cut are open, although this will be mostly hidden when I put my pics on there
