I’m not sure if I’m done with this or not. Will probably be evolving all through the month of September. Most of the time I hate my handwriting but I thought it would really give the cover a personalized look. Also I love washi tape so I was trying to get some use out of it.
Thought I would take a break from the running posts to get my craft-on. Today I signed up for an online class/adventure thingy called 30 Days of Lists. Anyone who knows me can attest that I LOVE a good list. I’m sure its due to my ADD.
Yes, I do actually have ADD, I’m not just someone who says it as an excuse for a random bought of laziness. Anywho, back on track.
I’ve seen these class (and hashtag) pop up on instagram from time to time and recently saw that the class was starting up again. I looked it up and its only $8! Definitely worth joining in my opinion. Coincidentally I had just purchased a “For the love of…” mixed paper book from Elise Blaha Cripe. Unfortunately she is sold out of her books currently but check out her blog, she is fabulous.
The package arrived last week in all its gloriousness.
This is the front and back of the book. It includes many different types of paper, colors, textures, shapes, etc.
One of my favorites is this scalloped piece.
The book didn’t have 30 pages, and even though I could have gotten away with using the front and back of each page, I wanted each list to stand on its own. I ended up adding 4 or 5 extra pages from scrapbook pages I already had.
I liked this red page with the tiny hearts. I also inserted two pages with the little speech bubbles. Absolutely can’t get enough of the speech bubbles.
Another one of my favorite things is this little divider page. I might try to replicate this and insert some more. The organizational freak in me can’t get enough dividers.
I’m very much looking forward to starting this project on Sept 1. I just hope my complete OCD doesn’t get in the way and I will be able to just let the creative juices flow!
