It’s finally kit release day for Habit Forming over at Feed Your Craft! Can you tell I’ve been a little excited about this one? I can’t help it - I really love this kit - the white space, the color, all of it, but it’s also that time of year that I’m ready for change, for intentional steps, and this kit is perfect for that.
One of my favorite parts about this kit is that the floral stamp can also be used as a habit tracker! Yep, stamp a garden of flowers on your cards, layout, or in your journal, and bring a little life that’s fun to color, or use it to mark daily habits by filling in one of the 30 petals or 30 leaves each day, and on months with 31 days, add a lady bug for luck and color her in, too!
There’s a handy-dandy PDF that will come along with your digital files to give you more information and remind you about this option. And while we’re on the subject of not forgetting, remember all physical kit orders get the digital files for the cards and stamps, too!
I used the digital form of the stamp to create a little tracker for the first six months of the year, printing it off on transparency that I’ll clip into the front of my albums and color in as the year progresses. Speaking of albums, I am using the new year as a nudge to get back on track with my memory keeping, and to do that I’m also changing things up a bit.
I’ve culled together all of the albums and binders I’ve been hoarding all these years - some made for these kind of projects, some not, some (very) old, some new, big, little, thick, thin, and I am going to use them, one for each month, to tell my stories. There are limitations to them, sure, but I am excited about what that will mean, and I am so ready to use kits like Habit Forming to make it happen and think outside the box. Some of these have classic page protectors, others have random papers, or nothing at all, and one was even an old Swedish cookbook, brimming with so many clippings, and I plan to work within and around and through all of it. Imagine if my most creatively collected commonplace books (see here for more info if that’s new to you) had a baby with my Project Life albums. I honestly can’t wait to see what happens.
I am ready to be a beginner again, and the start of 2019 is the perfect nudge to get it going.
And, even though all the surfaces I normally use for videos are currently covered in Christmas decorations, I created a makeshift set up that would make Santa chuckle, and did a rough, but full of love unboxing video of the full kit just in case you’d like to see the pieces in action.
You can grab your kit in the shop, and I am sending you so much love and thanks for your continued support!
