Happy New Year!

Hi everyone can you believe that 2015 is almost over. Where did the year go? A new year is on its' way a year of surprises, discoveries, and hopefully personal growth. Every year I make Crafting goals. I don't make resolutions as for me that is setting me up for failure instead I make goals and they don't even have to be big ones. It is easier to meet a goal of lose ten pounds then to make a resolution to lose weight.  So how did I do on my goals. My craft room although maybe not neater especially my work space is more organized.. I did make it on a Design Team. Yeah! And I've definitely been trying new techniques and products. I didn't make much of a dent in my stash but I did use some stuff that I've had for ten years or longer so that is progress.

Using Just For Fun Celebration and their Happy New Year frame I made this card to wish you a virtual Happy New Year!
 For the base I crumpled white tissue wrapping paper and used Mod Podge to adhere it as my Outdoor Mod Podge is really thick and wouldn't buckle the scrape card stock like regular glue.

I took a Silhouette Store frame cutting file and filled in the center with black alas I did not have the cutting lines thick enough so they did not print out dark enough on my laser printer for the foil. So I had to use a gel pen to edge in gold.

The sentiment frame was stamped and heat embossed with some Hero Arts gold embossing powder I've had for years. When I went to the big city years ago I bought it in bulk as the small town I lived in didn't have much in the way of stamps or embossing powders.
The Celebration stamp actually has confetti but it was too large to fit in the frame with all the details of the stamps so I stamped heat embossed and after applying both clear and gold Dimensional Magic cut the glasses out.

That is all for this year see you in 2016. Wishing you a Happy Frugal Crafting New Year with lots of crafting fun!
