List Making for Journaling / Title Work

4 Comments

Hey Gossamer Blue fans! Have time for some scrapbooking today? I only realised last week that we have an extra day in February this year. If you could spend the whole of the 29th with your scrap supplies, what would you make? I think that if I had all day to play, I’d slow down and work on my journaling..

Nothing too complicated; but I’d like to take some time to concentrate on the little details. And the best way to do this is with a list.

Mmm..stuck for a subject? No worries! I’ve put together a list of lists to give you some ideas. Pick one, any one, and start writing.

You’ll see that I’ve suggested coming up with five thoughts for each titles: it’s easier with a goal, and five is an achievable number. If I settle on ten I only ever get half way through; but why not add in a few more if you’re feeling it?

How about a quirky title – 7 1/2 Things I Think About Every Morning – to attract attention to your page? If your list ends up a long one (and that’s great, details are good, right? That’s what we’re
trying to record) you might like to think about splitting it into two halves: a double page spread, or with two titles such as “Five Things I Learned Before I was Twenty” and “Five Things I Learned After I Turned Thirty“, for example.

It depends on how much space you like to leave on a page. Or you could add some hidden journaling (for some ideas on that, check my December blog post).

Or how about choosing one list and asking every member of the family to complete it? Add the answers to a few of the larger Life Pages cards and you’ll have some instant fillers for a slow week. Which brings me to my page and my list.

I made mine with the Heidi Swapp puffy stickers in the February Life Pages kit, but take a look at the variety of number stickers in the Main Kit this month. Four sets? Keep on listing!
