If capturing everyday real life memories through story-based scrapbooking is your passion, our weekly Story Board was created especially for you! Check out these fabulous examples of everyday real life scrapbooking found this week right here in our own gallery…
“Projects Under Pressure” provides an interesting sort of behind-the-scenes glimpse of kayjaydo’s habit of creating gift projects under deadline. The images show a peek at the process and tools she uses at this point in time and the journaling offers insights into her behaviors and personality. This is the kind of real life scrapbooking that you may not think to do but that can be so much fun to look back on later!
Rather than simply slipping a report card into an album, “Trevor Homework” by leeners5 takes the memorykeeping a step further by journaling about the efforts that went into achieving those grades. I like how the story offers a glimpse at the daily homework routine, supported by the photos and the cropped images of the report card itself.
I can SO relate to misfitinmn in her quest for a few moments of peace and quiet! Her mention in the journaling of how so many of her photos of her son include him with his mouth wide open really helps get the story across, highlighted of course with a couple of example images. The story also sheds a little light on mom’s thought processes and daily life experience dealing with a chatty kiddo… well done in a fairly lighthearted, loving manner.
Even a total non-football-lover like me has heard of Tebow, which is why I think it’s cool that karen32 documented her family’s passion for their team and favorite player through her scrapbooking. This is a great example of capturing current events or news-related information in a way that shows a personal connection to what’s happening in the world right now.
I love when questionnaires are incorporated into scrapbooking, so “Read” by nun69 quickly caught my eye. The five questions answered here could easily be adapted to your own interests or those of a family member. I also enjoyed the way the answers to the questions are written in a conversational tone, lending a little personality to the story.
I find “Oh Fudge” by SandyPie to be a cool layout for a couple reasons… first, I love how she found a way to document the goodies she’s pinned to her Pinterest boards in a more permanent way; and second, it’s fun to read her little comments about what she thought of each recipe alongside the images. Never mind that the photos are making me totally crave a treat as I write this!!
I love the use of an actual email surrounding the events in “Lucas’ Mishap” by gateausoso. Not only does it help flesh out the story, it provides a visual example of how this family communicates at this point in time. Anytime you can work in a bit of memorabilia like this, I think it really adds to the authenticity and flavor of your storytelling.
That’s it for this week’s Story Board!! Check back every Wednesday for another collection of layouts selected to help inspire you to scrap YOUR everyday real life!
