For my One Little Word project and documenting my 40th year, I knew I wanted something vibrant that I would love using for a long term project. As part of my birthday present I treated myself to the Daily Grind collection by Simple Stories. I first saw it when Sarah bought the S J Crafts shop to the local crop and I totally fell in love. Alongside the full collection pack of papers, cut apart sheets and 2 sets of stickers, I also bought the 6x4 Snap cards, the ephemera pack and the chipboard pieces. Having everything coordinating like this means I can keep it all together for the year and it also makes for speedy scrapping - win win!
I wanted something striking for the title page to separate it from my normal pages in my 12x12 album (instead of the conventional albums used for this class by Ali Edwards). The dark woodgrain with the printed elements was perfect for this page which doesn't need journalling because the written parts are all to follow.
I've almost completed the next couple of tasks which are in pocket pages so I'll share that here soon and then it will soon be time for February's prompts! I'll let you know how I'm getting on with actually living with my word then. Wish me luck!
Bye for now
