Ideas for Scrapbooking Your Goals

goalsWriting down your goals makes it more likely you’ll achieve them. We’ve got ideas for recording current goals on your scrapbook pages. 

Marie-Pierre Capistran says, “Usually, when I set goals, I think of 10 different things, but I get nothing out of it because it’s just too many and I can’t focus. This time I decided to go with ONE single goal and I chose getting my daughter to sleep in her own bed.”

“I started by  making wordart that I could visualize daily and that would imprint the goal in my head. Next I decided on the way I would obtain my goal–and went with the “bribing my daughter” way.  I set up a calendar on which we would put the things she’d earn if she stayed in her bed the whole night. I wanted it to be cute so I stamped the little gifts she’d get the next morning. I have set a date on my left page (end of December) for when I wanted my goal to be obtained. I think it’s important for motivation to have an end in mind. Luckily enough it didn’t last that long. I only needed 5 nights to achieve my goal. Under the calendar I wrote down the process of finding my goal and making it happen.”

Barb Brookbank says, “My goals are simple and I try to follow the mantra: learn something new-try something differentby Brian Tracey. Because my goals aren’t specific, I wanted an ethereal feel to my layout. This is a photo I took of a tree out in a field of snow. I blended it with digital papers. I used the word ‘aspire’ in the white burst. Hmmm, I think I just came up with my word for 2013.”

Leah Farquharson says, “I set goals for myself every year. I personally don’t believe in resolutions. I’d rather determine where I am now and where I’d like to be, and then take logical steps in that pursuit.  My goals tend to be very personal and specific, so I haven’t shared them here. I did, however, share the 5 areas, in which I make goals for myself: 1) spiritual, 2) personal, 3) him & I, 4) mommy, 5) business.”

Adriana Puckett says, “I took three photos to support my three goals and kept the composition simple. Each goal is two words and I put those on the corresponding photo: 1) pray more, 2) move more, and 3) play more. I elaborated on the goals in journaling.”

Katie Scott says, “I normally make over-the-top goals and get disappointed when they don’t work out. This time, I used weight loss motivational quotes I’d pinned on Pinterest with themes of patience and setting smaller goals. You can see them on my Body Pinterest Board. I used photos of myself from our family’s recent annual photo shoot at the beach for our Christmas cards and a photo of my favorite old sneakers (which show that I have been working hard).”

Vicki Walters says, “I went with an ‘art-journaling’ approach to my goals page. There is one photo on the page–my face layered on an art doll body.  To make a bulleted list I typed up my list in Word first and then copied it onto my page.  From there it was all fun!”

Jen Matott says, “This page is a record of my hopes for 2013.  I wanted a ‘New Year’s’ themed page and so used a photo of myself celebrating with my family.  I chose a photo in which I was celebrating as a symbol of the New Year holiday. Think about symbols or universal meanings of your theme to create a unified look. I created a sort of count down look with: numbers, a New Year’s Ball, confetti, and festive colors.”

Stefanie Semple says, “This photo is of me was taken by a friend at a recent birthday party. I lost some weight through this year so wanted a recent mug shot. The journaling was key so I gave it pride of place and surrounded it with brackets in a deep shade of teal. I gave thought to my goals: were they achieved or not, did the New Year’s goals need to tweaked or just added to, what changes were needed to reach the new goals and what incentive I had to get there.”

Ashley Horton says, “I used screen shot photos to document my scrapbooking goals. I recently had a layout featured at Two Peas in a Bucket and used a screen shot to show I’d reached this goal.  I combined this accomplishment with the other goals I have reached.”
