Short Story – Story By Stacy

Short Story – Story By Stacy

We got to create one of the Short Story albums during Convention this summer.  I felt so lucky to get a chance to create this with Stacy Julian!  I confess it was a little stressful to create because you are looking doing a “mash-up” of your photos to tell a short story.  Not chronological.  Gasp!  The only real journaling is on the last page of the book.   Whew, right?!  In the end, I was thrilled by what I had created.  It worked out so much better then I thought it would.

Product Description

Each workshop kit includes:
1 – 6″ × 6″ album
10 – 6″ × 6″ Memory Protectors™
12 – patterned paper sheets; 6″ × 6″
20 – White Daisy cardstock sheets; 6″ × 6″
4 – sticker and die-cut sheets; 6″ × 6″
1 – Black & White Dots
1 – white twine; 1 yd.
1 – black & white gingham ribbon; 3 yds.
1 – Short Story workbook

I’m working on getting my Short Story into a YouTube video so I can share.  I tend to do FB lives then need to figure out how to make them YouTubes.  =)
