What an awesome layout! I would love to extend this into a two-page spread. Any ideas on how to create the second page?
Great idea! Have started my list. For some reason, the places are mostly from before children.
Don't like my handwriting. Have to print on LOs because my cursive mixes both. Have a problem with journal pens. For some reason I do something to damage them and then they only work if completely perpendicular to page which is unnatural.
How do you practice to improve your writing?
This was such awesome inspiration on so many levels... I'm doing a "14 things we love" using a list compiled of input from each family member for our annual album; and I'm going to try the "spreading out" style of the layout. Wondering: which album does this go into at your house? Know that you scrap for dozens of albums on any given day, and some layouts are easy to realize like backpacking trip, childhood, wedding...but with other layouts, do you determine the album before or after making the layout? Sometimes I'm so excited about a photo or story or technique that I create a layout and then it sits here while I try to figure out where it should go
I have physical limitations and sometimes my handwriting on the scrapbook page is really, really good and sometimes it looks like it was written by a two year old. I just tell myself it doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful. :-) Thanks for the wonderful page. I am really interesting in learning more about embellishment placement and this video was inspirational. Thanks!
fabulous way to help us get past those perfectionist leanings that really prevent us from enjoying the process and the results. Very valuable instruction, Shimelle.
look at all the fabulous bits of goodness on this layout! love all of the journaling, in this list format. and all of the little bits, stickers, hearts, cuts and more.
Video - Glitter Girl Adventure 107: Love List Layouts
This week Glitter Girl goes a little swoony with Valentine's in mind, but no literal Valentine photos in hand. Instead taking her inspiration from the holiday more loosely, she turned to list-style journaling to create a page with ‘14 things’ - in this case, 14 travel destinations shared with her significant other. Of course, the 14 things could be anything that suits your relationship, and indeed if you're not feeling lovey-dovey this week, you can pick a number more appropriate for any story you want to tell about yourself or your relationship with a friend, pet, mentor, and so the list goes on! Her adventure takes her through this new layout from start to finish, plus a heart to heart about handwriting on your pages and some basic notes on how she created the title wording with her own handwriting cut from paper. As a little bonus, you can download the ‘destinations’ lettering below as a PNG to cut with your Silhouette (open it in Studio, then use the Trace function) or overlay onto a photo.
Come along for the adventure, won't you?
This week, Glitter Girl hopes to see you take some inspiration from lists and perhaps the Valentine theme too! If you have a significant other who is largely absent from your scrapbook pages, take this as a cue to add a little balance. But not to worry if you want to use any other subject - we're happy to see any interpretation of the things, people, or places you love appear on your love list layouts! Happy scrapping!
