I'm finally sharing my first layout for 2014!
This time I used the fabulous kit from Scrapbooking From the Inside Out.
SFTIO is an inspirational source, kit club, and online community for scrappers. It's great to scrap about others, but sometimes we need to turn the focus on ourselves. These kits will help you on your journey as you create pages about your thoughts, hopes, and dreams.
Each SFTIO kit has an emotion behind it. January's emotion is - Empathy.
I created four layouts this month based around this theme. I chose to show this one first to give you a grasp at how you can begin making pages that follow your journey through 2014.
I have one bit of advice if you are new to this type of scrapping - "Breathe and enjoy the journey!"
To make a page of your own is a sweet process. First, take a hold of the emotion "empathy" and let it sink in for a moment. After that, grab a thesaurus and look up the word.
I found several synonyms that really hit home for me:
One of these words really stood out for me. It was the word "insight". To really feel empathy for another person I need to gain insight into what they are really feeling.
Once you get your page together be sure to add a bit of journaling. Keep the emotion in mind as you write. And be sure to write from the heart.
