Happy Sunday Everyone! We hope you all enjoyed this Month's installment of our Storytellers Series.
For this second week of the month, we looked at our theme of "History/Heritage" through tools. Sometimes this was layouts and projects where we focused on the voice or method that we used to tell the story. Sometimes this will be how we use Instagram or new technologies to tell our story. This week was for those of you who love to explore new ways to tell your stories, who like to look at telling your story through a new perspective or voice.
Stephanie shared a layout that truly told the story of just how much her children love one another. They are best friends, and it was important for Stephanie to capture their special bond.
Mel went searching for a picture of herself when she was a baby, and was astonished by how much it resembled her daughters at that age! She then used simple questions to tell her story, and found them to be a great journaling prompt!
Jill took a similar approach to her journaling, asking "who, what, when, where, why..." and found the "why" to be the hardest question to answer--turning it in to the main focus of her layout. We loved that although this was difficult, she didn't back away from including it in her scrapbooks.
Glitter Girl took us on another mini-adventure where she showed us how to create a page quickly using the rule of thirds! We love how she chose to use the new Mon Ami collection from BasicGrey, but used techniques that could be applied to any line!
Nancy shared with us a layout that really worked to connect her very American son, to his Italian great-grandmother. We loved how Nancy was able to combine a modern color photo of her son, with the vintage photo of his great-grandmother.
Jen shared with us her take on including those "Throwback Thursday" photos used on Social Media in her scrapbooking. She also showed us a great way to make tissue-paper flowers!
Paige used the "story" cut file from iheartstudio, and a rainbow of mists to create a truly amazing page! She also shared with us her hopes that her future generations enjoy these memories that she is capturing.
Stephanie went BIG on her spread this week, using a picture of the beach to represent the main part of this layout! She journaled using the "who, what, where, when, why" prompts, and tucked the journaling behind the calendar card.
Wilna used pocket style scrapbooking to create a layout that focused on the sister relationship between her girls. We love seeing the latest freebie cut-file used on this layout! (Be sure to download it if you have not yet!)
