Each journaling list is formatted onto a cute, curvy, lined journaling block. You can print them. Use them on a project. Make a mini album or journal out of them...the possibilities here are pretty endless. There are even blanks included if you need more space or have some of your own ideas for lists. (If you're digital savvy you can get the Digi Plus version, which includes the complete printable PDF as well as all 91 list files in PNG format, for just $2 more.)
Here's a page I made with the prompt "A typical summer day from my early childhood included" which I printed on kraft cardtock and trimmed out:
all materials from Studio Calico kit "Lawn Party"; cardstock: Bazzill; patterned paper, coffee filter: Fancy Pants; banner stickers, chipboard: Crate; corrugated houses: Jillibean; letter stickers: Basic Grey, American Crafts
I grew up in Brooklyn - lived there until I was 8. Most of my really fun kid summers were there. Despite the fact that lawns and playgrounds were scarce, we managed to have fun. I'm sure some of the things we did for fun then would horrify most parents today (myself included). For instance - we were permitted to roam our block until we heard our mother's calling us for dinner. (Brooklyn blocks are huge, and we had free reign to circle the block as long as we didn't cross the avenues that bound it.) We borrowed spray caps from the local police precinct to put on our fire hydrant. They supplied it to you with a giant wrench so you could open the hydrant, put the spray cap on and use it as a giant (and extremely powerful) sprinkler. We would run through the sprinkler in the street. When cars came, we'd move to the let them pass, then get back to the business of getting soaked. Can you imagine your kid walking up the street with his/her friends and a gigantic wrench that it takes 2 of them to carry? Then announcing their plans to play on a busy street? I don't think it's legal to use the fire hydrants in Brooklyn anymore - for anything besides putting out a fire, that is. anywho...back to the layout....
That photo is me and mom on a rare swimming occasion. Here is a close up of my actual list of Brooklyn summer fun:
So, back on the topic of the Ella's List It!; in honor of the release of these great journaling tools, I'm giving away a copy of the Childhood Edition of List It! (regular or digi version) courtesy of Ella. Just leave me a comment on this post and I will draw a random winner on Sunday.
