Highlight This Year’s Faves with Year >> Noted

We know you’ve raved over the spunky B&T paper and the exclusive pastel cardstock pieces of the Year >> Noted paper kit, but have you noticed the kit’s amazing stamp set? As the most expressive part of the kit, it’s worth seeing again and again on your projects.

This set is just the right tool for creating perfect captions, journaling spots, titles, headlines, and dates on your scrapbook pages. Its fun sentiments can become the inspiration for your journaling and even what photos you choose to display. They work seamlessly with the other pieces of the kit–especially the golden foil stickers—to help you note the moments that matter most.

See what we mean:

Year Noted scrapbook page

Take a look at this page, which shows just how nicely the kit works in a pocket scrapbooking format—the “cards” trimmed from the B&T paper fit perfectly into the 4″ x 6″ pockets of these Memory Protectors™. But the stamping is really the star here:

Embossed date stamp

This date stamp is a definite must-have for a scrapbooker. We’ve given it extra glam here with our Ranger™ Princess Gold embossing powder. The look matches the fun golden foil stickers that come with the kit so well you can hardly tell they aren’t the same material.

Year Noted page title

Stamps and golden foil stickers work hand-in-hand to create this title. Technically, those “Year” letters come from the negative spaces of the golden foil sheet, but we prefer to think of them as positive spaces. (It’s all in the eye of the beholder, right?)

Okay, the arrow looks stamped, but that is just a trick of the eye: it’s actually a piece trimmed from the zip strip. Of course, the set does include a great arrow stamp that matches that zip strip perfectly! (Wait for it…)

Year Noted scrapbook page

On this more traditional scrapbook page, the artist has taken the stamping up a notch with embossing to match it to the shimmer of the golden foil stickers again. Ooooh, shiny!

Check out the versatility of the dotted line stamps in this set. The image stamped across the bottom and middle of the page makes an understated border, while you’ve also got an image ideal for creating journaling lines. Top off your journaling with a few fancy bullet points made from golden foil stickers. Or, if you like a checkbox look, stamp a few the way you see them done on this page.

Arrow stamp

There’s that true arrow stamp! Told ya it was cute. A classic stamp image works great whether it is in the spotlight or playing a more subtle role as an accent.

Year Noted stamps

The clustering of the B&T trimmed cards makes a great backdrop for your photos, and stamping your favorite sentiments on them ties the whole page together nicely.

  1. In January 2014 I retired after working over 25 yrs with the Federal Government as a Border Patrol Agent. I joined when I was 22 yrs defending our country from terrorist attack, drugs and apprehending illegal aliens entering our country. Retiring was huge for me and I will always miss my exciting job. Best part is I am now a stay at home mom to my 3 and 5 yr old daughter and son, full time wife to my husband, volunteer at school and crafting!!! I joined CTMH this year trying hard to get a customer base and just loving this company more and more!!!

  2. I’ll be using mine to record all the special moments of being a VIP at Perth’s Australia Day Skyworks event on 26th January!

  3. I used my Year Noted mini album and kit to highlight my “bigs” for 2014. They were my 60th birthday, European River Cruise, my retirement from work after 40 years and my sons wedding. Very pleased with how easy it was to do and it is a great memento.

  8. Best milestone of 2014 was the birth of my fourth baby. His arrival was quick, unforgettable and rounded out our little family perfectly as we now have two girls and two boys. For my husband and I, nothing else came close by way of memorable moments for last year.

  9. Best milestone of 2014 was joining the Close To My Heart family. Scrapbooking isn’t just a hobby but my passion. I am blessed to have 2 wonderful kids who share this passion with me. I lost my Uncle to cancer and a week later found out my Dad has cancer. I wasn’t able to have my Dad in my life growing up, so much time was lost. In 2015, what time he has left on this earth will be spent making lasting memories.

  10. I am sorry but I have 2 big events for my oldest daughter Samantha in 2014. Two years ago we almost lost her due to atrial fibrillation with rapid ventricular response. This is the condition that causes young adults and children to have heart attacks when playing sports.My daughter’s afib started during her second season playing lacrosse in college. Thank God she would pass out and this would reset her heart rate. The doctor states this saved her life. A wonderful doctor placed a implantable loop recorder and this caught it at her condition at her next lacrosse practice. All other tests were normal and she had tons over the holidays. We were thinking stress. Sam had cardiac ablastion 10 days later ( no sports or stress until then) and return to school 4 days after the procedure. She played varsity lacrosse til the end of college.Sam is my most active child. My two events are this Samantha’s college graduation and her engagement this Fall. She will marry in 2015. I almost never had this, we could of lost her. My heart breaks for the parents who did lose there children this way. God Bless us in 2015!
