Made it through another week of lists! I am really loving how this project is shaping up, but it does take a concious effort to work on it every single day. If I am not able to sit down at the computer to type the list, I write them on a scrap of paper. So far, I have never been more than a day behind.
This may be the first time in my entire scrapbooking career that I am designing with so much text! Scrapbooking for me has always been about the photos and I did quite a bit of shifting around the cards on this page until I was satisfied. I was very unsure about adding more text in the bottom right pocket, but because the size and orientation are both so different from the other cards I think it actually works quite well.
More of my 30 Days of Lists 2013:
I did zero preparation for the 4×6 pocket, thinking I would use one of the seafoam cards I keep on hand. As it turns out, in the ninth month of the year, I am running a little low. I have lots of tan and orange cards (which I am hoping to use up over the fall!) but virtually no seafoam, teal, or grey. I really like these cameras (Amy Tangerine, Sketchbook), but I need to plan ahead for the next couple weeks!
9. Favorite websites and blogs
Just a few of my favorite internet haunts. Nothing too exotic. Bet most people have these on their list.
10. On my wishlist
11. Date night ideas
You may notice that this is not at all a list of date night ideas. I did sit down to write that list, but I felt a little ridiculous. We are at the point of our lives/relationship that when we want to do something, we just do it. No list necessary. Instead, I thought even bigger than the wishlist and wrote our “lottery” list.
12. Weekly rituals
Just a quick list of the events that forms our weekly schedule. Yes, that includes Thrifty Thursday at Designer Digitals. I get really excited to see the new brushes for 99 cents. I may have a problem.
13. DIYs I want to try
14. Things I love about _______
15. On my shopping list
Unlike the wishlist and lottery list, this shopping list is much more practical. Just a few of the things I am eager to get my hands on back in the states. Many of them within 24 hours of landing. I am dying for geotag paper clips.
Finally, I used the same ticket and quickutz alphabet as last week (and a sequin!) to make a little filler card. I will probably add the week number somewhere on each of the remaining pages just to add a little interest to the filler cards—this page alone had 3 3×4 and 1 4×6 filler cards.
As another observation, I printed out the cards this week on a printer, because I really wanted to get them done and on the pages. Even though it was a really high quality printer, the seafoam came out much more blue than I would like, particularly for cards 9 and 15. It doesn’t bother me that much, but since it is only 2 cards and I am going to print photos this weekend anyway, I will probably reprint them.
