I usually find designing in January a bit of a slog after the over-indulgence of Christmas designing. But the colors here really speak to me, so I'm excited to give it a go. I think traditional winter colors, which we often have in January, I find a bit of a drag. Also, I don't live in a place with winter, so a palette like this has versatility for us no winter people.

love this palette, thanks Marisa! smiley

It's also lovely for those of us who have winter (New England here) but don't like the cold, so thank you for a break from the usual!! I'm all for taking a few months/years off from the US/traditional-four-season-centric palettes & themes. I may live in New England but I'd love themes & colors from around the world for 2021, especially since I can't travel IRL right now!

smiley Love the colors!

Oh Bina! That’s lovely. You are quick!

I also live in an area with traditional snowy winters (Toronto, Canada). I also love the idea of a palette that's not the traditional colours of blues and greys for January. As 2020 has turned our to be a difficult year, I'm looking forward to 2021 & these colours are perfect.

Ευχαριστώ, Kat. Είμαι τόσο χαρούμενη που σου αρέσει.

I've finished a bundle for the January blog train. It's called Anew - here's what I wrote about the inspiration:

Every new year represents a fresh start, a new beginning. After 2020, we all need a fresh start in 2021. This bundle "Anew" was inspired by my hope that 2021 brings a new beginning for all of us and the world begins anew.

Although I specifically designed it for New Year's, much of this bundle can be used for layouts about any new beginning )ie. new jov, new home etc. or any other life change.)

I made an ACO file:


Some coordinating graph papers, glittery cork elements, and a versatile black enamel alpha:

and a fun template:
