Hi everyone, Heather Leopard is here and I am so excited for 2018 Resolutions week. I thought it’d be fun to create a pocket page that will coordinate with a New Year’s Eve page you’ll see here on the blog next week. This pocket page will store our resolutions notes for 2018 that we’ll write on NYE, hence the empty spots.

I used a mix of Pebbles collections that included gold elements, like Girl Squad, Heart of Home and Merry Merry. I even added some gold packaging from a recent mailer I received.
Kick it off with 2018
This pocket page will also be the opening page for my 2018 album next year so it just made sense to add 2018 to the 1st pocket. I added a doily as the base and then just layered over it.
I was originally going to add “hello” to 2018 but I didn’t like the composition so I moved it to the next card, which was created using two patterned papers. Then, I added some thread and a butterfly embellishment.
Since this is an opening spread to my family’s new year, the “Grow Together” sentiment was perfect.
I used a rosette from the Valentine collection and just removed the Valentine themed sentiment and added a gold sequin. I placed it ocer layers of paper, tags and a sticker.
I created a sequin pocket for this cute little frame. I added some sequins to a small jewelry bag, placing a few in the bag using glue dots so they didn’t all fall down to the bottom. Using my fuse tool, I made the bag to the right size of the paper frame. More tips on this can be found on my Instagram (@heatherleopard).
I included an ampersand on the last pocket to show that our 2018 story will continue throughout the pages of the album. I was even able to align it so that the bubble wrap dots create a “…” after the ampersand.
So that’s how I created my resolutions page to kick off my 2018 album.
Tell me, do you do yearly albums and if so, do you create a page for each year?
