Absolutely thrilled to welcome in the new year! Reflecting over 2014 scrappy adventures has instigated some changes for my 2015 plans. During 2014, I did the weekly LSS newsletter, designed 57 double page layouts for kits and classes, worked Saturday hours, hosted crops, and coordinated store classes. Well.... I am a tad tired! 2015, I am just going to chill and see what kind of mischief I can find in my craft room. But I am going to have a plan!
I want to change up some scrappy things for 2015. I have enjoyed reading other crafters' plans and goals. I thought I would start my first post of 2015 with my own plans. I am not a specific goal setter, more of a generalized plan setter. :) Just letting you know.
Scrap Process/Scrap Size
I am in process of figuring out how I will scrapbook this year. I love my 12x12 albums and pages, but I want something else. Over December, I started reflecting over all the 12x12 albums I have. I want a different size to scrapbook, smaller. I am in a quandary as to what I will do. 6x8 seems too small, maybe 8.5x11 scrapping. But 8.5x11 is still not calling out to me. I want to incorporate more pocket scrapping with whatever size I go with for this year. I want to be a bit smarter as to how I am contributing to my growing album collection. It is speaking to me, my growing album size. I feel pocket scrapping will allow me document more photos that I want and then I can play with my papers to scrapbook other photos without increasing my albums at such a high rate.
I am still keeping to my system of scrapping from my paper tray, but I still find I have too many papers. I plan to be even more selective with paper purchase. I will put a little more thought into the number of sheets of paper I buy from new lines. If I stick to it, I will think 4 to 5 sheets from new lines and only 2 embellishment items. I'll see if this works.
I have a sweet new camera! But I find myself still grabbing my iPad to take photos! No, I am going to learn how to maximize my new camera. I love Elise's 2014 Photo a Day challenge from Feed Your Craft. She is so inspiring! So no more grabbing the iPad!
I think I am set for 2015 plans! Happy New Year everyone, may it sparkle and shine for everyone!
