Use Something New this week - Thursday

Challenge: Anything goes using Something New

December 31st - January 6th, 2014 

Starting off the new year, we want to start featuring different types of projects.  

Thursdays is going to be Pocket Thursdays and we will be featuring projects using pocket page style scrapbook pages. 

I have been working with Craffiti Direct on a few projects and they supplied me with the New Years Stamp set to use on this project.  


Here's a quick picture of some of the other item I started with.  

The first think I did was take an UmWow Studios mask and some gold embossing paste. I smeared the mask with the paste and let it dry.  I really thought I was going to use more of the stars,

I stamped the year on the star and used black embossing powder to bring out the year.  Then I punched a hole in the top of the star and threaded it with some bakers twine.  I wanted it to look like the ball dropping.

I used a Copic Glitter Gold pen to color the champagne glasses.  I stamped the stars in clear Versa Mark Ink and gold embossing powder.

Here's another filler card I created using the bottle and the bigger set of shooting stars.  I used the same glitter pen on the bottle and gold embossing powder on the starts.  I then used white embossing powder and the Celebrate stamp up in the corner. 

 There are some other stamps in the group that I used.  The Out with the Old and In with the New.  This is a great place to do some journaling.

So here's the full two page layout.  There's a nice  8x6 picture spot in the upper right corner and I can't wait to get the picture of my husband and I developed to put there.  This also left three other 4x6 picture spots and a full 2x12 journaling spot where I can write down our evenings activities.  

Here's a close up of the right side.  I used the embossed stars down one side of the top picture spot.

Here's a close up of the left side.  I used the My Minds Eye Chalk Studio Paper collection and I really like how I was able to use one of the wonderful printed sayings.
