How do I know I’m near the end of my scrapbook? The list told me.
I think many scrapbookers keep some sort of list of layouts they want to do. While I don’t plan out exactly how many pages I will do, I like to have a list as a reference for when I’m ready to move on to the next page.
I made this list when I started the book. I go through my box of keepsakes for the year and write down every possible event that I could scrapbook if I wanted to. I go through all the pictures I have from that year and add to the list.
Will I scrapbook everything on the list? No. It just helps writing it out to make sure I don’t miss anything and so I can look at the big picture to see what’s important.
I type my notes (trust me, I will lose them otherwise), and keep them in a document stored online in the cloud. I can access my list from anywhere in the house or even at work (not that I would look at it at work . . .).
Just like a handwritten list, the best part is crossing off items as I go along. The end is near!
