You’ve set some great goals for the new year, and you’re ready to get to work (especially after reading our tips for goal-setting success)! What better way to keep track of your progress and motivate yourself along the way than to create a cute mini goal book? With the help of the Cricut® Artbooking collection and the La Vie En Rose paper packet, you can create a trendy mini book like this:
Look how fun! We got really creative with this project, starting with the cover: Those colorful “2016” numbers were cut from some Picture My Life™ cards, while the bookmark flags come from the La Vie En Rose Complements. But that’s just the beginning—let’s take a peek inside!
We’ll start the grand tour with this motivation pocket. It’s full of stamped cards with encouraging reminders for the day. Bright watercolors are the perfect way to add extra excitement and energy to these motivational sayings. Watercolors also come into play on the next page, where each goal fits into a category, and each category has its own color. Has organization ever been so cute?
Here’s another card from Picture My Life Through the Year! It’s already so decorative that just a couple embellishments are enough to complete the page. Charts are great for keeping track of your goals, so we created a pie chart with a twist. It coordinates with the goals on the previous page, and you can fill in the chart with watercolors as you complete your goals, proving that keeping your goals can be fun and creative!
Finally, check out these lists—beautiful and inspirational! Isn’t a reminder of what your goals are all about a perfect ending for this book? It’s a great reminder about why goal setting is really important. On the surface, goals seem to be all about what we do, but they are actually about discovering who we are and the inner strength we have.
What’s especially neat is that this applies to creating art with paper. On the surface, you’re stamping, designing, and arranging, but what you’re actually doing is learning more about yourself as you discover your own creative potential. Pretty neat, right?
We hope you enjoy fulfilling your goals as much as you enjoy creating a fun mini book like this one to track them!
