New year's resolution for Stampotique

The challenge from the Stampotique Designers this week is to show something that involves a new year's resolution. I'm not brilliant at resolutions, it always seems to be setting myself up to fail. However...... I have decided on a couple of things. The first is to make better use of the craft stash I have already got. I know I won't stop buying new things, but I am going to try really hard to use what I've got and use up the scraps from projects instead of storing them away and never seeing them again!

To that end, here's a couple of bookmarks made with background scraps from other projects.

Ah, but Lisa, you'll say, you said you'd decided on a couple of resolutions, so what's the second one? Well....the second one isn't to do with crafting. It's to take my alloted breaks at work, so that I get some time away from the computer and don't get stressed. So....I'm back into the habit of taking my latest book to work so that I relax......and as I may have said before, all of my books have their own bookmarks. See? 2 resolutions in one.

Of course it helps that these have the keeper of the key on them.....cutest monster ever.


  1. Well done on your resolutions, Lisa - I think we could all do with following the first one. I have more stash than I could ever possibly use in this lifetime, but still find the need to buy more every time I'm out! Lol.

    I love your bookmarks - the little monster is so cute. I don't have any Stampotique stamps yet - think I need to buy some! Well, there I go again! Hehe.
