2022 Paperesse Yearly Retrospective

Happy New Year! Health and happiness to you and yours in the new year ahead. 

With each new year, I like to look back over the previous year and choose a favorite monthly project. I have to admit, it was a toss up on several months this year; December, with its fifteen posts, was especially hard to choose. The final cut picks are shown above. For more information on any project shown – digis, supplies used, etc. – a link click below will take you back to the original post.

Thank you for reading Paperesse and for all your kind comments throughout the year.

From left to right:

1. January – New Baby card to welcome my great-niece to the family.

2. Feburary – an Across the Miles slimline Valentine's Day card.

3. March – Kitty's Special Present birthday card.

4. April – Micey Wagon Easter card.

5. May – Best Fishes birthday card.

6. June – Merci (thank you) card.

7. July – Baby's 1st Month mini-album (there've been a lot of '1st' projects this year).

8. August – Bacon in the Sun summer card (apropos given last summer's high temps).

9. September – Cactus slimline birthday card (guess I was channeling the heat).

10. October – Scarecrow Bear Happy Autumn (my favorite time of year).

11. November – Strawberry Feast thank you card (thank yous are always in season).

12. December – after much internal debate it's...Percy's Christmas Tower.

I'm linking up with Ellibelle's Corner/Papercrafters' Year in Review 2022 blog hop.


  1. An adorable selection of cards, all so sweet!! Difficult choose a favourite, but I think the September one, the slimline with cacti!
    Happy New Year!

  2. Lots of adorable projects and I can imagine it wasn't easy to choose! I am glad I don't have to choose a favorite from these. Although that little penguin on the last card does look ADORABLE!!
