Hello Happy Crafters!
We're having such fun showing you our Creative Team's projects using the January Kit. Aren't the ladies just brilliant?!
Today we feature Donna's creation.... I'm sure you will be inspired!

Hello lovely people

Wishing you all a Happy New Year
and May it be Filled with Great Things..

I wanted something special to showcase Aunty Vera's January amazing kit this month
so  I created a book titled 'Celebration of New Years Craft Resolutions'
using the Simple Stories paper collection, my own stash and ALL the goodies
from the January Kit..  

You can find the January Kit HERE.
I have used the Elements Paper, the Fireworks Sprays and the Fireworks Stencil as the MAJOR components for each page.

 I cut the Elements Paper (from the January kit) into sections & have called them Elements paper for this show and tell hehe.

I started with the Cover, "This is your year to sparkle", but I didn't like how it turned out so I covered it up with the back of 'Kiss Me' Elements paper and added a windmill and trim. Now It comes together how I like it.

I used the  'Happy New Year' Element paper, misted Fireworks Spray in the corner, Used the Fireworks Stencil,  punched out three flowers cut them into a windmill shape, added some bling and streamers and Voila you have the Back of the Cover...

My Heading Page with the 'This Year' from the Element paper.. ''12 Months of Celebrating New Year Craft Resolutions''. Trim, Fireworks Spray and use of the Fireworks Stencil finishes off this page..

Page One 'January'...  'Get My Projects in on Time and Learn to Use YouTube Confidently". 'Raise Your Glass' Element paper & a flower and trim from Prima sets off the page nicely.  Fireworks Stencil and the Fireworks Sprays
give this page a finished look.

I looove the way the Fireworks Spray is so shiny, though the photos of the
actual project does not do justice to each page.. ..

Page Two 'February'... 'Organize & Catalogue my Stamps & Dies Which Will Take 12 Months'... Wow, what a mouthful to say out loud.. I love how the texture through
the Fireworks Stencil seem to come out from behind the 'Raise Your Glass' Elements paper and as you can see the Fireworks Spray seems to change colour on the Bazzill Pink cardstock to almost a milky white....

Page Three 'March'... 'Create Kits & Card Sets'. I love how this Prima flower ties in with the Count Down Elements paper on this page.. The Pearl Tart Fireworks Spray and  texture from the Fireworks Stencil are very subtle on this colour cardstock.   

Page four 'April'... 'Do Not Buy New Craft Supplies', 'Use More OF My Craft Stash'.
 I love how the fireworks diecut with a trim on top stands out with the Elements 'Awesome' paper and matches in with the textured Fireworks from the Fireworks Stencil and again the Fireworks Sprays have give this page a milky white look.. 

Page Five 'May'... 'Get Ahead With Birthday Cards For All Family & Friends'.
Again the textured fireworks from the Fireworks Stencil make the 'Cheers to the Year'
Element paper stand out. And the Fireworks Spray pops out on this page..

Page Six 'June'... 'Scrap More Photos For The Kids Scrap Books'. The Pink of the
'Best Year Ever' Elements paper gives this page a wonderful hue. The dots in the cogs are interesting as they are the Nuvo Jewel Drops, which changed colour when used with this colour cardstock.. The texture paste  Fireworks Stencil and the
Fireworks Sprays changes the colour of the cardstock completely.

Page Seven 'July'... 'Practice My Colouring With Watercolours and Copics'.
I Loooove the effects from the Fireworks Stencil and textured paste and the Trim is just plain wonderful.. I made a shaker star from the Simple Stories paper and used the Shaker Embellishments from Cheery Lynn Designs. 'Countdown' Element paper and Fireworks Sprays brings it all together.. 

As soon as I saw the Shaker Embellishments from Cheery Lynn Design,
I knew it was destined to be in a shaker on a page lol... 

Page Eight 'August'... 'Create Journals For My Poetry And Stories'. 'Kiss Me at Midnight' Elements paper tied this page together nicely.. The black texture paste through the  Fireworks Stencil  and the Fireworks Sprays showcase the
Bazzill Candy Necklace cardstock to perfection.. 

Page Nine 'September'... 'Learn New Techniques Especially Mixed Media'.  I love this page as the 'This Year' Elements paper matches so well with the Fireworks Stencilled paste and the Fireworks Spray.  I used the streamers from Kaiser Crafts 'Fireworks and Streamers' die as strings for the balloons and a trim matches in perfectly sitting on a sticker shape.

Page Ten 'October'... 'Spring Clean And Destash The Studio'. What a combination!!
Bazzill Pink & Candy Necklace cardstock looks fantastic together.
'Raise Your Glass' Element Paper, Fireworks Spray and black texture paste Fireworks Stencil with  another shaker embellishment and yep! page is complete.

Page Eleven 'November'... 'Complete Christmas Cards And Projects'. Don't you just love how the 'Balloons' on the Elements paper and the Gold texture
Fireworks Stencil on the cardstock with the Firework Sprays bring this page together!!

Page Twelve 'December'... 'Have A Peaceful Christmas And Receive Lots Of Crafty Presents'. My Favourite page (and that is apart from the resolution lol); I used the negative of the Kaiser Craft Fireworks and Streamers Die and filled it in with all different coloured streamers.
A flower from Celebrate It Occasions Black & White and a Trim makes the page don't you think!! 
'Cheers to the Year' Element paper, black texture paste Fireworks Stencil and of
course, the Fireworks Sprays kind of finishes the book with
a nice ending I reckon!! 

Back Cover... My name and year is all that is needed with the 'Countdown' from the Elements paper, Oh! of course it wasn't complete without some Firework Spray from Fireworks Greenhouse by Imagine Crafts..  I love how the spray changes colours depending on the colour of the paper you are using..
(Check out Amira's project for a glimpse of what you can do with this stuff)

And Finally the  Finished Book..

 I filmed the end result because the process of making
the book was a ' Work In Progress' with lots of
"changing my mind" lol.
