MCT 19th Edition Sneak Peek: Angel Word

by Veronica

Click image for larger view
At the end of each year, my Bible study girls and I each choose an "Angel Word" to start the new year. The Angel Word is meant to be something that we think about for the coming year and apply to our lives. It's become a great tradition that we all look forward to.

My word for 2012 is Flexibility and it's AMAZING how much this word has come to play in my life. I chose my word (remember, this is by random draw) in mid-December and started my weight-loss/healthy living journey in January. I had no idea in December that I would be choosing to live a healthier lifestyle very soon. I've become flexible in my food choices and physically flexible as well! I've also decided to 'live my life as a blessing to others" and be flexible with my schedule so that I can be more available to help my friends and family.

Usually, we just pick words out of a bowl. We get to see our words as we choose them and then share our words with the group. I thought it would be nice to have a special way to receive our words and open them all together.

For my project, I used the new My Creative Time 3x3 Fancy Envelope Die. After cutting my envelope in gold card stock, I stamped the champagne glass from Keepin' It Classy twice and embossed it in clear - just so it stands out a little on the gold card stock. I created a 'belly band' using white card stock and popped up a silver layer with the "Happy New Year" sentiment from the new Card Sentiments set. I embossed the sentiment in white.

After adding my belly band, I stickled little champagne bubbles above the glasses and a bit onto the belly band. I printed the Angel Word using the Print Clearly and Affair fonts.

  42. A very clever idea for picking your words for next year. How did you choose which words you would use and do you use the same list of words every year? Interesting idea and I hope you continue to follow your healthier life style :D My husband, who was not overweight, started eating to lower his cholesterol and I along with him, because we eat the same things. We both lost weight and feel better for eating better...luckily we both are not fussy eaters and we had been eating a lot of the same foods. Great job on your words project, it is beautiful. Good luck with next years word!
