In 2013 -
1. I created 34 page layouts.
A little smaller number than expected, but that's a whole new album full of memories! I don't like to pick favorites from my own work, but if I had to... I would pick this one. I always like a page more if I use photos that I love. Products that I love also help to achieve the desired result.
If you judge by the number of repins on Pinterest, I guess I found a favorite layout among readers and other scrapbookers. I came across THIS this on Pinterest:
2. In 2013 I made at least 84 cards!
I made a few that never got on the blog, because they were either similar to the ones I've already shared or were made to order and gone too fast, before I even snapped a picture.
A favorite card by cardmakers? I don't have screenshots, but have seen my "You've got mail" card repinned many times, and it also got the most views and comments in the Two Peas gallery. Plus, I got a couple of e-mails, asking about instructions for it.
In 2013 I made 15 explosion boxes!
Considering these are a little time consuming, that was pretty amazing! Another interesting fact is that I made 5 in the first 11 months and 10 in December. Favorite? Probably the one that had two more boxes nested inside, which was made for my little sister...
I did another year of Project Life - 52 weeks of photos!
I don't have 52 spreads, since I had to combine a few weeks together and I didn't journal as much as I wanted, but the year of photos are in! Hope to share a few weekly spreads sometimes soon. I used this simple but gorgeous "Midnight" edition set.
I plan to continue on using same set this year too, since I have enough cards left to complete another Project Life album!
In 2013 I did 109 posts!
That's not near as much as some other people do, but it sounds like an accomplishment to me. The most popular one? - "Scrapbooking on a budget" - It has over 3,500 views! I'm not sure what, but I guess I did something right there... or maybe that subject just sounded interesting to many. Second most popular post - "8.5x11 versus 12x12", also one of the "Scrapbooking on a Budget" posts.
In 2013 we added over 5,400 photos to our library.
That's what I have left after deleting about twice as much. It would be impossible to pick just one favorite photo of the year! But this one sure is one of them:
In 2013 I was invited to be on a design team!
A very special thank you to Julie and her team of talented and creative people of Les Papiers de Pandore! I'm completely in love with the products they release and hope to continue on this fun journey! Favorite collection? Love them all! Well, I guess "Crochetin'" at the moment...
... maybe because that's the one I'm working on right now!
In 2013 I was published in a French Scrapbooking magazine!
What an honor! Thank you ladies! Thank you Esprit Scrapbooking magazine! Looking back, I remember it feeling like a dream. It sounded too good to be true! I didn't totally understand that they are publishing an interview and a whole bunch of work in a separate article!
In 2013 I won a weekly challenge and a gift certificate for Two Peas in a Bucket store and a surprise box from Nancy Damiano!
It was a great year! Thank you 2013 for a lot of blessings and great memories! Thank you new followers and a BIG thank you to those who take a minute to leave a comment!
