At the beginning of each year, I make an annual New Year’s scrapbook layout. I started this tradition several years ago and consider it to be an important part of my scrapbooking journey. This project serves as a jumping off point for my storytelling adventures and a declaration of what I hope for in the coming year.
This year, I used the Document 365 January Digital Kit by The Cut Shoppe along with the December 2022 Hip Kit Club Kit to create this 12×12 inch scrapbook layout.
I started this project by taking a selfie! I have found that if I don’t take photos of myself, no one else will (unless I ask)! The photos for this project were resized to 3×4 inches.
Next, I looked for New Year’s themed products in my stash…of which I had NONE! So, I grabbed a digital kit from The Cut Shoppe and paired that with pattern papers and embellishments from the December 2022 Hip Kit Club main kit and embellishment kit. The color story in both collections coordinate perfectly to create a cohesive spread!
I kept the journaling for this project super simple. In the past, I have documented self-improvement resolutions on my New Year’s layouts. However, I have recently found that I prefer to make a list of realistic intensions based on enjoying my life versus self-improvement. For this project, I used a 3×4 pocket card from the Document 365 Collection to journal my plans and thoughts for 2023.

I hope you are inspired to create your own layout that features your hopes and dreams for the New Year!

I so love this idea for a new year page, this entire layout, and your happy face!! I don’t like my face so I don’t allow photos of myself. This reminds me that I am worthy of being remembered in my SBs!
I hope you will consider including yourself in your scrapbook pages. Your story is worth documenting my friend!
