Hop Into The New Year With Sketch N Scrap!!!

Happy Monday everyone!!! I really hope you have been enjoying the Sketch N Scrap Holiday Hop so far!!!  

Today, I bring you a wonderfully inspiring card for the New Year!  Not just any card... But a card that was PUBLISHED in the first issue of Let's Get Sketchy's Sketch Inspired Magazine!!!!  Here's a look at the magazine page:

And here is my actual card:

I decided to go with "non-traditional" New Year colors (Black, Gold, Silver, etc) and create something fabulous!!!!  This is what I came up with :-)
I used papers by Coordinations and K&Company.  The die-cut was cut using the Spellbinders "Scalloped Circles" die and my Grand Calibur, and the digi stamp is by "Cuttlebug Cuties".  I used my Spectrum Noir markers to color her in, then topped off the card with clear glitter glue, a ribbon bow and trim, sparkly flowers, and a die-cut clock that was inked and topped with a thin coat of clear glitter glue as well :-)

Now... For the "Good Stuff"!!!!!  
To be entered into a drawing for a FAB-U-LOUS prize pack, make sure you are a follower of the Sketch N Scrap Blog and MY Blog as well.... Then leave me a comment letting me know a New Year's Resolution you actually "stuck" with!!! 
(If you're anything like me, this may be a bit difficult!!! Hahahaha!!!!)  
That's it!!!! Easy peasy, right?!?  One winner will be randomly selected and announced on November 12th!!!! Here's a "peek" at what's up for grabs:

~ MME "Merry and Bright" Double Sided 6x6 Papers
~ K&Company Double Sided "Visions of Christmas" Mat Stacks
~ SEVERAL Holiday Trims
~ Various "Christmas Style" Twine
~ K&Company Glitter and Bling Rosettes
~ Christmas Die-cuts
~ Glitter Snowflakes
~ And MORE!!!!

  1. Great card with wonderful colors! I like that you went with something less traditional. A resolution that I stuck with? I think it would be to craft more! I sure do that one well! Lol!

  2. Love your card Brandi and congrats on having it published. I've been a follower of your blog for awhile and also at Sketch N Scrap. I've seen your projects on many blogs and love them all.
    The one New Years resolution I kept was from 2012 after we had moved to a new neighborhood and my resolution was to get to know my neighbors more and I did just that, I even became our Home Owners Association Treausrer that same year.

  3. Congratulations Brandi on being published!! I am so happy for you. <3

  4. Congrats on being published! What an amazing card and layout! I love using nontraditional colors for New Years! I actually am still sticking with ONE of my New Year's resolutions, giving up drinking Coca Cola....and I feel much better! I really don't even like the taste of it anymore!

  5. Awesome card Brandi! And congrats on getting your work in the magazine!

  6. Congratulations on getting published! I love all the glitter! My New Year's resolutions -- well -- I am not sure I even kept one! However, I do make the same one all the time and that is to get healthier. I suppose you only fail when you stop trying - right? Well, in any case, I keep trying!

  7. Absolutely beautiful card Brandi!! I love the use of non-traditional colors and CONGRATS on the publishing! So far I have stuck with my New Year's resolution to eat or drink veggies daily.

  8. Congrats on being published!! your projects are always darling so I can understand why yours were chosen! I'm not sure I ever kept a resolution thoughout the whole year that is why I stopped making them!! (smile) Stacy H-W

  9. Great card and congrats on being published, Brandi!

    So one of last year's resolutions was to buy less scrapbooking supplies and I DID stick to it...but only for two months. But that was better than the year before so I call that a success! HA HA

  10. What beautiful and cute card Brandi. Congrats on being published. Great projects always.

  11. Wow Brandi! Your card is so pretty & your layout is amazing!!! Love them both!
    The only New Year's resolution I have stuck w/ is recycling!!!

  12. Awesome projects!!! Wow....thinking abt New Years already is kind of a mind-boggler. One resolution that I kept was reading the Bible through in a year. I did it that year and the next two, also.

    How lovely of you to offer such wonderful blog candy. I am already a follower of yours by Google Friend and now am a brand-new follower of Sketch N Scrap by Google Friend, too. Yippee!!

  14. congrats on the publishing! love your non-traditional NYE card! did i even keep any resolutions???
