I decided to use this sketch
from the Guided Inspiration Kit as the starting point. And really, I only made a minor adjustment to the design by moving the journaling. I'm going to continue to use the KI Memories Sew Cute papers as the foundations for my monthly layouts. In addition, I mentioned before that I'm also using the Year-O-Graphy collection from Simple Stories for my Document album
Speaking of Document 2012, I had planned on finishing all of the envelope pages and the title page by the end of this month. I haven't quite done that, but I am making progress (other projects, and general last-month-of-pregnancy preparations have gotten a little in the way of that plan). I am happy with how the envelope pages are coming along though, and when I get them finished I will share them with you.
Don't forget that it is not too late to start this project! You can sign up for the reminder emails, here (make sure you select the box for take twelve). Each month the Take Twelve team will be sharing their ideas, layouts, and photos both on the Ella blog, and on their own personal blogs. There is plenty of inspiration out there if you are ever feeling uninspired or overwhelmed by the prospect of a year-long commitment.
Even if you are not participating in Take Twelve, are you doing another year-long project? As the first month of the new year comes to a close, how are those projects coming along? Share your experiences with me in the comments. As always, I would love to hear from you!
