2021 Scrappy Goals

This year I am going to take some advice from a friend and co worker, to have goals for the year instead of resolutions.  Not sure why but the word goals is so much more appealing.  I've never really done resolutions.  So I've decided to do the following for the scrappy area in my life.
Try to use up most of this Washi/Fabric tape.  I'm not sure how I rarely use it but I may take a page out of Dianne's book and use it to hold things down on my silhouette mats?  Dies to paper before cutting?   Somehow I will need to reach for this stash.
These are my pre printed die cuts, pocket scrapping/journaling cards and some tag collages I've created using them.  I would like to purge/use as many of these as possible.  Again I rarely reach for them and need to get rid of them.
I intend to go thru this box and donate anything I know I will not use for certain.   I will post a better picture after this is complete.
 I feel bad throwing out paper can you tell?   This is they tiniest dent in my paper scraps.  I have them sorted by color in another spot and a couple of envelopes from scrapping away from home that need to be incorporated back into the stash.  This has to end I have to figure out what to do with them and use them up.  Plush this box is a bit bent out of shape so it needs to go!  
 
To this end Dianne and I have committed to doing 25 layouts from now until mid February.  So hopefully somewhere in there I will start to make a dent in my goals.

There you have it the 2021 Goals.  I'm excited to get started. 





Adorable Elephant Tags - Etsy Shop

Today  these adorable elephant tags went up in the Etsy Shop.  Why?  No idea other than just sheer cuteness.  I mean how cute would a gift or favor be with one of these little tags on it?  
The little elephant is a Odd Bird Planet stamp paper pieced on to the tag. 
 
Hope everyone is doing well!  Thank you for stopping by Happy October.

Sunday Self-Care - Scrappy Saturday

OH Gracie!  You are so cute you don't need the face mask.  She is the most relaxed dog ever maybe it's all the Self Care?  Anyhoo This layout was done using a kit from the Scrap Room Flavors of the Month April Kit mostly Fancy Pants a Cherry On Top line.  I had fun doing this one mostly because the pictures crack me up.
 
Thanks for coming by to take a look. 

Scrappy Sunday - Victoria Marie Online Crop It's Fall Y'all - Sunday Challenge 3 & 4

 I'm back these are the last 2 layouts out of 9 which is pretty darn good for a weekend for me to complete.  The layout above was Bobbin For Stash we had to use older products and other items put forth in the challenge.  This one turned out sweet.   Older products aren't really a challenge for me since I mostly have and use older products.  But  that's okay I used another scrap paper kit for this one some Die cuts and an American Crafts Thicker title.  The picture is oh so sweet of Abbi and Brie both so timid but adorable.
This challenge was to shape it up I chose this shape as I had these Spellbinder dies in my stash.   I used yet another scrap paper kit with a lot of October Afternoon as well as one piece to layer the layout onto.  These photos are of Gracie doing her thing being WEIRD she always is...  The title was cut with the Silhouette.
 
That's it I had a great time and felt like I got a ton done at the Victoria Marie Virtual Crop. It was very organized and it was really chill.  Which I always think fosters creativity.  I had a great time and I'm looking forward to the October Virtual Crop.
 
Hope all is well with everyone.  Thank you so much for stopping by again.

Scrappy Sunday - Victoria Marie Online Crop It's Fall Y'all - Sunday Challenge 1 & 2

More layouts from the Victoria Marie Online Crop for September.  The above layout was a fall page with non traditional fall colors.  I had a page kit made up with older scraps like Junkitz and Scenic Route along with some bits of card stock that matched.  I am thrilled with how this turned out.  I cut the title out of white then distressed it to look like roasted marshmallows.    
 This challenge was the sketch challenge so self explanatory.   I know I'm still doing baby, toddler, grade school, and high school pictures for these 2 but they are almost completely grown.  It was fun to do really current pictures like from only a few weeks ago.  The paper is from Hobby Lobby but perfect for this event. 
 
Thanks for taking a look I have one more set of layouts to share so tomorrow.
