StampinByHannah Thoughtful Thursday One Little Word
These Thoughtful Thursday blog posts were designed to allow me to reach out and share more of my personal crafting with you. I started to craft as a bit of an escape, and it has become a way of helping me control my anxiety and improve my Mental Health. One of the crafty ways I am tackling my anxiety this year is by taking Ali Edwards‘ One Little Word class. I have been watching this class from a distance for a few years, but this year I decided to spend my birthday money on me and buy the class! I am SO glad that I did!
So, the last Thursday of each month I am planning on sharing my One Little Word project for the month.
The idea of the class is pretty simple. You pick a ‘focus’ word for the year, and then each month Ali provided videos and prompts for you to creatively explore that word, giving your inspiration and much much more.
My word for 2018 is ‘Growth’. I’m not going to go into massive amounts of detail about my word, other than what it is. However, I will share my spreads for the month. I am choosing to use Stampin’ Up! supplies for my One Little Word album, in conjunction with some of the print-ables that come as part of the class.
My starting point for this album is the Perfect Days Memories and More Card Pack. You guys know I’m all about the colours… and the colours in this pack are awesome!
I’m really feeling cooler tones at the moment, and I don’t know whether that’s because my Anxiety has been playing up, or the fact that its been REALLY cold outside!
Like I mentioned Ali provides a heap of print-able elements as part of this class. So the first thing I did was download and print the journalling cards for the month. I managed to completely screw this up (hence why they are backed on Memories and More cards!)… I expect its to do with printing out cards designed for 8-1/2 x 11″ paper on A4, and my complete lack of technical ability, but I don’t mind. I’m not sure whether I might try and work it out for next month, or stick with things how they are… we shall see!
As you can see I have totally finished this month, I need to work on my Intentions a little more and add a photograph of myself in that 3×4 pocket but I wanted to share this with you before the end of the month. Looking at that picture, I might move some of those cards around a little too… a work in progress as always!
