    6. Hey Steff. My resolution for 2011 is to get this afterschool scrapbooking/arts and crafts program for my kids elementary school. It is hard on some kids not having this in their lives and I want them to express their creative side. I plan to start with one day for 1 hour and then work on a 2nd day. Its my goal to start volunteering my time to do this for the kids.

      Thanks for your inspiration with your gorgeous mini. Ive made quite a few myself. I love them. Thanks for sharing.

      Hugs

    13. Hi Steff! Love, love both of the holiday minis you created! Beautiful as always. One of my resolutions for the new year is waste not, want not.

Have a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!

    27. I love your mini, so pretty!! For 2011 I plan to scrap more, after having a very rough end of the year I didn't have anytime to scrap. I also plan on spending less and try and use up what I have. Having you as a secret Santa would be a wonderful birthday gift and a great fresh start to a better year. My birthday is on 01/01/2011 and I am going to wish big when I blow out my candles, hehe. Thanks for a chance to win!! Merry Christmas and Have a Happy New Year!

    28. I am seriously not going to buy any more paper for 6 months. OK, 3 months. None, My hubby asked me today if I thought I had enough paper (dumb question) and maybe I shouldn't buy anymore. He's right! I am putting myself on a moratorium for 1 whole month starting January 1 2011. I'm serious! So here's my New Year's resolution: I promise not to buy any paper for a whole week.

    35. Hi, Merry Christmas from England!
      What a beautiful mini as always. I love the way you use colour and texture. I've only created one mini so far (quite new to crafting) but I,ve been getting some ideas from you and lots of other YouTubers so my goal for 2011 is to make some minis, cards and scrappy pages and have fun doing it.
      Thanks for the opportunity to receive a gift. Carry on giving us all inspiration in 2011.

    37. Hi Steff ! I wish to you and all your family a merry christmas. In 2011, I hope that I will scrapbook once a week and challenge myself using the stuff I have for years and didn't find a way to use them until today. I wish you a great 2011 year and can't wait to see what you will create ;)

    38. I'm not a "full-fledged" scrapper, but I do love little books like the awesome one you posted, and the tree before it. I just don't do them very often! So my New Years resolution will be to make at least 4 of these little books next year, one for each season! I will continue to come to your blog for inspiration! Thanks!

    42. Steff, LOVE your mini book! It has such a wonderful vintage look. This coming year I hope to be better organized with my supplies - I always make a big mess when I make a new project and then start another one right away before putting things away from the previous project.

      Merry Merry Christmas!

    43. Hi Steff - No New Years Resolutions just positive thoughts to scrap more and catch up with my digi pages. Learn more things (from all you inspiring You Tubers!), make a lot more mini albums, join more swaps (how fun to meet more fun crafters) and just have an all out good time with my crafty addiction!

      Merry Christmas!

    45. Hiya, really enjoyed this mini! My scappy resolution is to get my space better organized. I need my writing station and my art space to peacefully co-exist in the same room, so I need to find ways to maximize my storage. While I'm at it I will also pledge to find more time for painting, crafting and creating!

    46. First, I want you to know you are missed when you can't post for a while! Your work is always beautiful and inspiring. Thanks!

      Now, my New Year project is going to be a 12 X 12 Album for my new grandson's first year. I have a few ideas already.

      Wish you a Very Merry Christmas and a wonderful start to a New Year!

    47. Thanks for another great mini -- and I for one love all the pictures. sometimes the video goes to fast, but i can really see details in pictures. so thanks for taking the time to post photos, too.

      for 2011 i hope to do more stamping. i have collected so many stamps and haven't used so many of them. even if i just stamp them into a book of stamps i would be using them. or possibly make lots of tags and stamp all over them. anyway, more stamping is on the list.

      Merry Christmas and i hope a Happy New Year.

    48. That mini is sooo gorgeous, Steph! In 2011 I want to expand my creativity more and try to create some really different projects USING WHAT I ALREADY HAVE! I'm hoping to organize my craft room better too! tfs...Happy New Year!

    49. Hey Steph, Let me start off with you are AWESOME your personality is priceless and your creativity is beyond words.
