After seeing me post all about my own 30 Days of Lists, you may be wondering if you can still join in. YES, absolutely, you can read more about the challenge and register here {affiliate link}. No one ever said that they have to be 30 consecutive days, or even done in 30 days. You may choose to speread them out over the next year. The next challenge begins in September, with another in December so there are plenty of opportunities for you to join in.

THE LISTS
I began embellishing some pages before the #30lists challenge began, which is something I like to do. With the journal I am using, there is a mini kit included as well as the opportunity to add-on an embellishment kit with a collection of coordinated goodies. This blog post shares how I used every single item {I'm pretty sure at least} from the add-on kit in my journal.

Day 3 | My Anthems
Before the List
The page comes already trimmed to mimic a pennant banner shape for you, find the journal here, and then I added the camera die cut {included in the add-on kit} using foam dots to attach it to the page.

After the List
The yellow die cut bracket shape on the left page is folded over from the previous day's list {see Day 1 here} and I used the shape to lead the eye to my list title.  I then used a hack I've used before - phrase stickers - to journal my list.

I always draw a blank when I'm put on the spot for favorite "anything" so I switched my list title just a little as more of a "themes of my life" kind of list rather than anthems {songs} that define me.

Day 4 | Tips for Getting Started
Before the List
It's always fun for me to include office ephemera in my journals and the hot pink message slip just seemed so Spring like to me that I had to include it. I've used them in past 30 Lists mini books and they're always fun to find new ways to make them look new and different.

After the List
I try to use up my letter sticker stash on listing projects and had just enough to spell out the word tips in my list prompt.

I borrowed that famous Nike tag line for my list and went from there. Sometimes, you just need to believe in yourself and do it. Forget the prep and the hype and just begin. Start. Just do it.

Day 5 | Ways In Which I Would Like To Grow This Year
Before the List
The 4x4 card comes with the speech bubble shape pre-punched for you, and that's the mini kit included with your journal, which opens the possibilities for list prompts, title placement and more.

After the List
I used one of my stand-by techniques, kraft paper strips, for my list prompt. So easy to do, a great way to use up scraps AND it catches your eye and makes you look.
