Collecting Pebbles & Resolutions 2012

A nice and simple Little Girl LO :-) The pebble background paper is from stash - I don't know how many years I have had it! - and I have torn and inked the edges, then matted onto a sheet of Bazzil Cinnamon Stick. The title is robo-cut (font: boyzrgross) in Bazzill Java - it has photographed as two different browns, all I can say is that it is from my first ever session using my new photo studio booth and that I really need more practice in setting up the lighting! A simple stamped swirl under the title to complete the page.

So ...... about those resolutions ......
For me, 2012 really has to be the year of Use It Up. I have an obscene amount of stash, plus projects, kits, UFOs, items to decorate, you name it. I also have stuff I bought because I wanted to try it out, like resin casting and serious beading, I have so much beading equipment and I only really make simple things like earrings and charms, so I need to improve on those skills too. Then there is all the fabric and the cross stitch kits ....... you get the picture!

2012: Use It Up, Finish It Off and most importantly - Get Around To It In The First Place :-)


  1. I like your resolutions for 2012 - I too tend to buy things thinking that I will try it... but never quite get around to it.

  2. good luck with the resolutions. great page for her layout, that pp is perfect

  3. I love that font, and it's great with the page. strange how the title looks like it's been done in two browns... you'll get there with the photo box. I think the easel thing may be doing more harm than good. I just sort of lean the page onto the background. The fabric is good in that it does actually grab the edge of the paper. :)
