It's a New Year

and along with each January 1st, many people choose to make "New Year's Resolutions".

Now, while we all have good intentions of following through with these, more often than not, our good ideas last all of about a couple weeks at best.

Here at The Shoppe, I am going to try my very, very best to keep up with this blog on a regular basis. More ideas, more tips & tricks, more shared sketches, more challenges....more of anything I can think of!

So to kick off 2011, we are going to challenge you to make a scrappin' resolution for this year.
And really, this shouldn't be at all difficult for ANY of you to keep up with!

We're calling this resolution **Project 12**
And just as the name hints at, we would like you to make a promise to yourself to complete
1 layout every month for this year. 12 layouts in 12 months. That's not much to ask. And NO CHEATING by doing 3 or 4 at a time and saving them for the coming months!

The purpose of Project 12 is to keep you scrapping on a regular basis.

So that will be YOUR commitment.

Ours will be to supply you with a new sketch every month to jump-start your creativity. Cuz let's face it ~ it can be hard to always come up with a new idea that's totally different from something we've done in the past.

Use our sketch if you'd like or choose one of your own....just make sure you complete 1 layout.
When you do, then please share it (and the sketch you used!) on our FaceBook page ~ we wanna see too!

As an added incentive, if you do post and share(make sure you put Project 12 in your status!), we'll give you a
Project 12 Discount on your next purchase at The Shoppe!

So here is your first prompt for 2011 ~

and the layout I created.
Please note: I flipped this sketch upside down...worked better for me that way!

Have fun with this and look at it as a personal challenge, not a chore.
You'll be glad you did it!
