* * January blog challenge * *

What better way to start the New Year than with £20 to spend on stash!

All you need to do is get your scrap on and take part in our monthly challenge!

Easy Peasy!

So the challenge is this : CREATIVE INTENTIONS!

What are your creative intentions for 2012? What are your scrappy resolutions? or your plans to craft?

The challenge is to create a layout that documents your intentions, or simply START your intentions! Are you planning to start project life? Or Document 2012? Well DO IT!! and share it with us!


For 2012 I have a whole bunch of intentions and I needed a lot of journalling space to record them but essentially I am going to photograph my life and then I am going to scrap it! and I plan to enjoy every minute!!

My layout features 4 small pics of the "tools" I need to do this... a stack of photos, my new Selphy printer (love) some stash and my calendar!

Claire has scrapped about her intentions to "make everyday special" - such a gorgeously beautiful sentiment.  Your intentions don't have to be huge grand plans but can be simple ideas to make 2012 a year to remember


Helen is one of many scrappers who is embarking on "project life" in 2012.  Project Life is a concept designed by Becky Higgins and essentially is a project to scrap the everyday and record your family life in an ongoing scrappy project.

Helen has decided to embark on his challenge and so for our January challenge she has shared with us her opening page to her album! Make sure you follow her blog to track her progress!

So here is your challenge!

Topic : Creative Intentions

Entry : Create your layout and then comment below leaving us a link to your page online (either on your blog or a photo sharing website)

Prize : £20 voucher to spend at Sarah's Cards shop!

Deadline : Please post your project by 31st January, the winner will be announced on the blog on 8th February! : )

This was the perfect inspiration to make a page that will remind me of what I need to do! I'm hoping a physical reminder will help - http://craftimperfect.blogspot.com/2012/01/use-it-or-lose-it-2012.html

thanks!
