30 days of lists | days 1 + 2

All month long, I'll be taking a few minutes to think about a topic, write my list and embellish the list in my mini album. Other than having an excuse to make a really cute mini album for me, and add to the shop, the other really great thing about this challenge is that I take the time to go through my stash and add them to my lists. 

For example, the mini album I'm using from the shop comes with an embellished front cover. But I decided to add a paper doily behind the white card and glued it to the folded kraft bag. Then I added a tab to a journaling card and tucked it inside the "pocket." I added the #30lists die cut I had designed for a previous class to the metal tab that comes with the journal.


Day 1 | Why I Make Lists

One of my favorite ways to journal on top of patterned cardstock is to cut strips of paper, trim it into a  banner and glue it to the page. I'm using my favorite set of Thickers ever made...the font, the foam, the color!

Day 2 | Resolutions That Never Stood A Chance

I added the number 2 to the back of my Day 1 page and used foam dots to adhere the list title that I created in my word processing program.

I don't kid myself anymore, I'm just not that into exercise. Yes, I know I should. Yes, I know I need to. I go in spurts about drinking enough water, but generally I still need to drink more. And patience? I'm going to be 51 soon and I've still not mastered that.

If you like lists, join me in the March 30 Days of Lists class. I'm a sponsor and would just love to have you listing along with us. You can create your own journal, buy a journal from my shop, or just post your lists on Facebook or Instagram. There are no rules, just fun!

  1. I love the idea of using the strips on patterned paper! I will definitely be using that at least once in my own album. Thanks for sharing.
