A Book Of Lists

Hello my scrappy friends. Recently I've heard a lot of ideas for capturing all the fun and excitement of the upcoming holiday season; daily journals, a picture a day, etc. And while I like all of those projects, they don't seem attainable for me...I'm just being realistic. But I found another fabulous and interesting way to document the joy of the season, lists!

Yep that's right, lists. Now I will admit I love to make lists, yes it's part of my Type A personality, but these list are more fun than the general "to do" lists. Topics included in this file are:' The perfect Thanksgiving meal does not include', 'The people in my life who are probably the most thankful for me', 'The perfect winter day includes', 'It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas when', 'Childhood Christmas traditions I'll always remember', and many more. You can find this ebook at Ella Publishing and lots of other great stuff.

Now confession time, I had to scrap the idea of a tutorial today when I realized I didn't really know how to use my Cinch. It turns out I need a little more practice, lol. Anyway, here is the final product.


I think it will be really fun to not only answer these questions myself, but to ask family members to do it as well. I can either add pictures to this book and create a "real" mini album or remove the lists and add them to my scrapbook.


Details:
Pattern Paper: My Mind's Eye "Holly Jolly"
Cricut: Kate's ABC's (book, lists) cut at 1.25-inches and Martha Stewart All Occasion Cake Art (A, Of) cut at 1-inch
Fancy Pants Rub-ons
Aqua Mist Grosgrain Ribbon from Papertrey Ink
White Crinkle Ribbon from My Craft Spot
Prima Eline Pearls
Twine from Papertrey Ink
Star Charm: My Mind's Eye Bits and Pieces

I hope you enjoyed this project. Perhaps you can create something similar to store all the wonderful memories and traditions that we create during the holidays. Thanks for stopping by!

This is a great idea Kate - some of the things on your lists would be a great help as journalling starters or titles for scrapbooking.
