While I (Lisa) usually start my design process with the story, sometimes I’m stumped by what exactly to write in my journaling. My daughter recently starred in a theater production of Annie and there was so much about her experience that I wanted to document! I was feeling a bit overwhelmed and it was preventing me from creating a page about the event. Then I saw the list journal card in the July Kit and it inspired me to start the page with a list (because this style of journaling is usually very easy and low pressure!)
Using the red numbered list card as a guide, I typed out the 10 reasons my daughter rocked this role. I printed them on white card stock and then cut them into strips to adhere onto the card. (You could also easily type or write directly on the card!)
With my journaling complete, I laid out the rest of my design that features a 4×6 photo of her on stage. I used several pieces from the July kit, including the star cut files (I cut stars from the border file) that help reinforce my page theme.
