TV faves by Kiki Kougioumtzi|Supplies:Pattern paper: Graphic 45; Alphas: Basic Grey, Jenni Bowlin Studio; Brads: Basic Grey.

Kiki Kougioumtzi says, “I’ve listed all the TV series we watch this season.I was inspired by Lynnette Penacho’s favorites layout, but made this one simpler. I placed my photos in a loose but obvious grid and numbered them. The numbers correspond with the numbers in my journaling. Also, for my background paper I choose a ledger pattern to add to the accounting feel.”

the evidence of her “inner librarian”

Scrapbooking Ideas for Storytelling with a List | Susanne Brauer | Get It Scrapped

My Inner Librarian by Susanne Brauer | Supplies: Cardstock. Stampin Up; Patterned Paper, Allison Kreft for Webster’s Pages and Teresa Collins; Library pocket, 7 Gypsies; Library Die-Cut, American Crafts; Flair, Two Peas In A Bucket; Stamps, Amy Tangerine; Alphabets, American Crafts & Fancy Pants, Chipboard, October Afternoon

Susanne Brauer says, “This page list the things about my nature that are proof that I really should be a librarian. I put my list journaling on a library check-out card, tucked into a pocket, just like those found in library books.  Instead of including a picture for every item on the list  I used a cluster of three photos showing parts of my book collection.  The photos tie into the first three statements.  If you pull the card all the way out, you see many more reasons why I am a librarian on the inside.”

15 songs her theater group performed

MPC’s Greatest Hits by Heather Awsumb | Trouble Maker, Click, Equinox by One Little Bird Designs; Assorted Messy Stitches White No 5, Loosely Labeled No 6, Almost There Element Pack, Little Layette Kit, Basic Paper Alpha White, Plastic Slimline Serifs No 1, So Fine Element Pack by Katie Pertiet; Scrap Your Heart Out No 6 by Janet Philips

Heather Awsumb says, “I created a playlist in iTunes of favorite songs that my community theater group performed in our productions.  My journaling is a simple list of the songs, and I added photos from our shows. Since it’s hard to format bullet points in Photoshop Elements I’ve learned to use brackets (like forward pointing arrows) to indicate a new line. I centered the names of shows above each series of songs.”

8 lessons from her grandchildren

Lessons From My Grandchildren by Brenda Becknell | Supplies: Patterned Paper: Graphic 45 and Echo Park; Enamel dots: Doodlebug Designs; Font: CK Higgins Handprint

Brenda Becknell says, “Having grandchildren has taught me a lot and reminded me of some things I had forgotten over the years.  I decided to document some of these lessons in a list.  I used a grid design with the journaling in the center, but too keep the page from being too blocky, I surrounded the journaling block and small photos of my grandkids and blocks and strips of brightly colored papers.  In keeping with the childhood theme, I added pinwheel embellishments made of the same patterned paper filling the blocks on the page.”

He listed: It feels like Christmas, snowmen, snow angels, we can go skiing, fluffy and soft, and, finally, because it’s so much fun.”

7 reasons for pursuing her one little word

Health 2014 by Marie-Pierre Capistran | Supplies: Patterned Paper: Authentique, Amy Tangerine, Maggie Holmes; Letters: Thickers by American Crafts; Button: My Minds Eye; Velum Stars: Studio Calico; Rub-ons: Dear Lizzy; Arrow sticker: Studio Calico; Rhine Stones: Doodlebug; Spray Paint: Heidi Swapp, Studio Calico; White pen: Sakura; Other: Silhouette Cameo.

 Marie-Pierre Capistran says, “Health is my one little word this year. I made a list (under the picture, it’s a little bit hard to see on the picture because it’s white) of the smaller actions I have to and want to take to get to my main goal: to be healthy! I added a quote to motivate me and help me keep the why in mind. For the design, I aligned the title, the photo and the list on one side of the layout and I kept the quote very low key so that it doesn’t steel the show.”
