While New Year's Eve is usually celebrated with friends and family, evening parties, dancing, eating, drinking and watching fireworks ... unfortunately, the theme this year is a much quieter one. The CDC is asking everyone to limit their gatherings and to be safe. So ... time to get creative!! Just because our New Year's Eve plans are at home doesn't mean our evening has to be boring!
Maybe it's just you and your sweetie or ... you and a few friends. Either way, if you normally dress up ... DRESS UP! Yes, even if you're just sitting on the couch. Who cares! It might be the first time you've dressed up in 10 months, lol! And this will make such a cute photo opp!
Plan to make dinner, or order in from your favorite restaurant. Sip champagne, wine, apple cider or any festive cocktail while enjoying some hors d'oeuvres and a super yummy dessert. Let's make this evening fun. We deserve it!
If it's chilly, spend time around a warm toasty fire, drink hot chocolate and watch the ball drop with a friend. Have a game night, build a puzzle or have a virtual toast with everyone you couldn't be with. Don't forget to take pictures! It may not be perfect but it can still be a fun, photo worthy evening.
Year's Day, spend the afternoon scrappin' your fun evening with a
Hallmark movie marathon playing in the background. Yeah, that sounds
Now, for the how-to ... for the background, I started by cutting a sheet of 12"x12" black cardstock into 2 pieces. (12"x8" and 12"x1 1/2") Then I used a piece of plastic acetate in between to make the page 12x12.
backed the acetate with a strip of white paper with gold hearts I had
in my stash from Hobby Lobby (The Paper Studio) and added some cute gold
sequins to float in between!
The clock is from the Simple Stories 2018 New Year collection. The Gold and white striped paper is from the Doodlebug Hello Collection and the gold swirl stickers are from Hobby Lobby (links below).
I hope you all have a wonderful and safe evening! Thanks for stopping by 😊
