Amy's book of lists

Hey hey!

I'm Amy - from Lemon and Raspberry. I have a genetic disposition toward list-making, so when Kam suggested this project to me I think I must have said 'yes' before I was done reading the email :)

I made my book-of-lists using a 7"x9" recycled binder from ReBinder. It's the perfect size for 1/2 sheets of regular ol' 8.5"x11" paper.

For my list pages, I'm using the 1/2 page Minimal Theme - available in the 30 Days of Lists downloadable pdf package. (that Futura font is my current favorite).... I've got 1 list prompt for each half page, with room to paste a photo on the back of the page opposite.

You'll see ...

The cover is painted a bright blue, which I complemented with this lime green to matte the title:

I finished it off with a lime green ribbon to wrap around the whole thing. A nice, pretty, streamlined finish .... along with keeping it closed while on the shelf....

I think I will also add a divider to mark off these lists as done in 2011. There's also plenty of room to add another year or 2 of 30 days of lists....

So fun!

As Kam mentioned, there is no right or wrong way to do this - this just happens to be my style! Clean, simple, straight lines and uniform ..... I like having the pages/book be as simple as possible to not distract from the content ....

More photos will be uploaded to the 30 Days of Lists Flickr Group. Head on over there to get some inspiration for your own list collection. Be sure to join the group to upload your own work throughout the month!

Oh I love the way that turned out, I am still trying to figure out how I want mine to look.
