How to Use Scrapbooking Supplies for Goal Setting

Do you set resolutions, goals or intentions for the year? If so, put your scrapbooking supplies to use to help you reach those goals! In this article I’ll share 5 ways to get you on track!

Make it Monday Pink Circle

Welcome to the Make it Monday Blog Circle! You may have arrived from Artful Adventures where Kristie Sloan had a fabulous pocket to hold your New Year’s goals on her layout. At the end of this post I’ll share your next stop on the blog circle.

Setting goals and staying on track with them can be easier said than done. Put your scrapbook supplies to use and you will be extra motivated to stay on task and reach your goals.

Here’s 5 ways you can use your scrappy supplies to help you reach your goals this year!

1. Set Yourself Up for Success

Use charts and planning sheets (and make them look great) to set yourself up for success. These awesome goal setting charts are prettier and more enticing to use now that I’ve added strips of colourful washi tape from my scrapbook stash. Use this trick to add a little pizzazz to simple pages. Don’t they just make you smile? 🙂

2. Make a Pretty Planner

Planners. Using a planner can be very useful when you are working towards a goal, unfortunately many of them are boring and dare I say, ugly! Use your scrappy supplies to make them awesome! Add stamps, washi tape and other embellishments to your planner so you’ll actually WANT to use it!

See the arrow tabs pointing to important details in my planner? They are washi tape! I fold the one end over onto itself and cut the other end into a point. Now I have an easily moveable washi tape pointer! Fun and easy!

3. Give Yourself Motivational Reminders

Motivational reminders can help to keep you on track. Leave a little note in places that will remind you to get your tasks done to reach your goal. You can use sticky notes, or washi tape. Bonus idea: Print off a gorgeous and inspiring image from Pinterest… I’m sure you have a few of those, right? 😉

4. Track Your Progress with Photos

Use photos to motivate yourself and to truly see the progress you are making towards reaching your goal. This works for all kinds of goals…  fitness, organizing and more.

5. Scrapbook Your Goals

Connect more with your goal and share why it is important to you or explain your plan to achieve it on a scrapbook layout. The more important a goal is to you the more motivated you will be to reach it.
