And now for my contribution to the blog hop...


I thought it would be fun to use Samantha’s Artisan Checkbook Style Mini-album Silhouette cut to help me with my New Year’s Resolutions to lose a few pounds and exercise more.


I used Word to design tables that looked like checkbook registers to keep track of my progress. Why not have fun while working on those resolutions? I glued the inserts back to back for added stability, but you can simply staple them in the center to make a quick project.

Samatha’s cut file is so versatile and can also be used to keep a food diary, or used as a mini album. The possibilities are endless! She also has two additional checkbook designs that you will want to check out by clicking here and here.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by!
