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.  =)

Making Memories

Making Memories

While I’m here at the CTMH Convention making memories, I’m sharing this great layout using the Fresh Air Workshop Your Way and the Studio Sus Workshop.

Because I’m going to use these layouts to scrap pictures from our Appalachian Trail Adventures last year, I really enjoyed getting these layouts done.  These adventures with Aunt Lauren are a once in a lifetime adventure as she does not plan to hike the trail again.  Too much humidity for her!

The Picture My Life cards that you can cut out from one of the papers in the kit provide some great titles and journaling spots.   “Real Authentic Family Memories” with the word “Escape” through it, works so well because out on the trail, it’s real, it’s an escape, and we created some awesome family memories this way.

“Making Memories” is cut from the Thin Cut Alphabet.   Use the Fresh Air Compliments to make layers or clusters in different areas.   I used a number of different embellishments that I had around.  I love scrapping from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet.  Take some time this summer to celebrating making memories.  Time comes and goes fast.

Do You Know The Colors Of The Rainbow?

Do You Know The Colors Of The Rainbow?

Appalachian Trail and Fresh Air

Appalachian Trail and Fresh Air

You can get two better topics together with the Appalachian Trail and Fresh Air paper.  It’s really an awesome “marriage”.  I’ve started working on our jaunts from last summer to see parts of the AT when my sister hiked it.  This layout is from the Studio Sus Fresh Air Workshop Guide (you can get it free with a $25.00 product purchase from my site).

Here are some close ups of elements from the pages.  I used silver foil paper rather than gold.  There is no stamping in this workshop.  It’s done from the Fresh Air Workshop Your Way and a few extras, like the Silver Foil (or Gold Foil) paper and a few extra embellishments I had on hand.

I’m finding that I use the Thin Cut alphabet more than I thought I would. It makes crisp, clean titles for pages.

 

This cute cluster is from the Fresh Air Compliments:

The wooden embellishments from Fresh Air Shapes are a nice change.  They add a lot to the pages.

June things to keep in mind:

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet.  Have a creative day!
