The Monthly–January collection

The first page of my photo project for this year.  I’m using the template set from Cathy Z called ‘The Monthly’.  I bought the 8.5 x 11 set and resized each page to be A4 because that is the size that they use for photobooks here in UK.
My plan is to do 4 pages for each month.  One page will be a collection or themed set, for instance I will do one on details of my kitchen once all the renovation work is finished.  For this month I decided to take photos of a number of collections of things that are around my house at the moment: my mugs; scrapping supplies I’ve unpacked and have been sorting; the apples Dad brought me from his garden; the toolbox and my wardrobe to show the colours I’m wearing. 
I used the stitching brush that I found at the weekend for a small embellishment.  The font is one of my new favourites – designer notes.
Looking forward to this approach to the year.

I think this approach is more do-able than the daily layouts. However, I think I will be doing the one layout a month. I also bought CZ's 8x11 Monthly set. Really like them.

This is a great layout, Helena. Love the collection theme and the vibrant colors. Your stitching embellishment is really nice too!

What a good idea - I seem to remember buying these templates myself, must dig them out! :-)
