After a much needed break, I am back!
I kind of stopped scrapbooking for a bit, except for two or three assignments and a mini-album gift I made for my husband for Valentine's day.
I am going to share those projects with you today, and then talk a little about what my goal is going to be for my posts here at Craft Your Nest. :)
My first page for the year was based on my One Little Word. A concept introduced by Ali Edwards several years back. I decided to make Focus my word for this year. Something I really, really need to work on around here. And I think I am doing better.
I also made a small tag mini album as a gift for my husband on Valentine's Day.

Then I made a collage out of the photos from that mini album and made a scrapbook page as well for a design team assignment at Paper Issues!
And I made a few Valentine's Day cards.

This layout was a design team assignment as well for Paper Issues using digital cut files.
So I would say this is the extent of my scrapbooking in the past three months, except I did go to a weekend crop which was fantastic. It was so much fun to get away and just scrapbook for a weekend.
I worked on a 2013 Summer Project Life album that I haven't taken photos of yet. I find PL pages hard to photograph with the glare from the page protectors. But I am working on it.

Now that I am really in the mood to scrapbook again, I am looking forward to offering "use your stash" challenges here on the blog every Wednesday starting next week. I really need to use up product I have on hand and know that a lot of scrapbookers feel the same way! So I am going to put together some challenges using specific product as well as inspiration I have collected on my Pinterest board. I have a little bit of a stash issue there as well. So many wonderful ideas pinned that need to be used! :) So you will see sketches, layouts, cards, color inspiration and more here every Wednesday. There will also be prizes as well.
I hope you will join me.
