My little book of lists - Punky Sprouts Teenie Beanie Mini


Ack!  I just realized that I forgot to set this post live here on the blog last month when it was posted to the Punky Sprouts blog.  Last month we teamed up with Epiphany Crafts, I was pretty psyched as I've been wanting one of the Epiphany tools for a while.  Anyway, it's a little aged, but still a fun mini.  Enjoy! 

Lists seems to be kind of the rage right now.  They are a quick and easy way to do journaling if you are pressed for time or have some writer's block, and an easy way to create meaningful layouts without having to do a ton of journaling.

The Teenie Beanie mini was the perfect size for this.  I used papers from Echo Park's Everyday Eclectic collection, and some washi from my stash as well as some Lawn Fawn alphas.  The Epiphany tool was so easy to use too.  I'm thinking I need to get some more!

The Teenie Beanie has two fabric pieces in it.  For this first one I use some old (ugly) alphas that I had, stuck them down and misted over top.  So easy, but I love how bold it is.


I divided up the mini into several categories so I can 'file' the lists in different areas, here's an example of a To Do list.  You could certainly be more mundane like:  things to do today, honey do lists, stuff to get at the grocery store, stuff to pack, etc. 


Since I'm so bad about journaling these days, I thought I would try to include more 'diary' type lists.



And of course lists with long term goals/plans.


Hopes might sound a lot like dreams, but I consider this more about other people - things that I wish for my kids, husband, the world around me.  For this canvas piece I used my SC circle graph set and just misted over it and added the title with an ultrafine Sharpie.



Finally, a look at the back of the album - all of the reverse sides of the pages were finished with paper from Everyday Eclectic and washi or another thin strip of paper at the top, but I didn't photograph them all because I thought it would make the post too long.


Thanks so much for coming by!
