2013 - New Year's Resolution Tag Book

Here we are just about to cross over into the new year!  If you are like me you're probably asking yourself where this past year went!  You may also like me be reflecting on the past year, and thinking about what is to come in the year 2013.  In the past I've had trouble with the concept of resolutions.  But this year, I think it would be good to set some personal goals and write them down in order to achieve them.  Having said that, I've come up with a project that will enable me to capture my "New Years' Resolution" and display it in my studio as a constant reminder.

Inspired by the dresden quilt template - I came up with this unique tag book I can write 10 goals or resolutions I'd like to achieve in the year 2013. 

I'm limited on tools as I'm still visiting with family for the holidays - so I used our Card Labels stamps to create the top of the tag - and the curve at the bottom.  And connected it with angled straight lines.  Once it was cut out I had my pattern!
The print layer behind I used the large oval to get the curve and again once I had my pattern traced and fussy cut out the rest of the 10 tags.

I made tags to announce the year, and date stamp when I created my book. For added fun, I rolled a rose - and tied twine with buttons to the ring.   
I used Card labels set again along with the new release Remember the Moments. 
The numbers are from this set as well, and I used them not only for the tag and the year, but also for each tag as I numbered them. These come in one long stamp - but I'm often using one number at a time with this set, so I cut them apart for easier stamping. Don't worry you can always line them up again if you want to stamp them all in a row! :)

I punched a hole and joined them all together along with the tags on an 1 1/2" office ring.
I don't have my Resolutions on here yet, but have started my list and plan to work on them before the New Year begins.  What are you plans and goals for 2013? 
Happy New Year!
