Story Board~ 01.19.2011

If capturing everyday real life memories through story-based scrapbooking is your passion, our weekly Story Board was created especially for you! Get inspired to scrap your real life by taking a peek at a few of my favorite layouts spotted around the Web this week…

If a layout here inspires you, how about giving the gift of encouragement by clicking through to the gallery and leaving a thought or two for the scrapbooker who created it? You may be amazed at how much this little act of kindness means to others.

"Your Art" by Kelleanne

"Your Art" by Kelleanne

I love this collection of a child’s artwork in “Your Art” by Kelleanne. The frames are a perfect complement to the drawings and the little comment tags are a fun little personal commentary from the scrapper. A great way to preserve these masterpieces without actually saving all of those full-size drawings.

"K?" by mommy2boyz

"K?" by mommy2boyz

One of my favorite things to observe and try to remember about my own kids is the way they talk, so I immediately was attracted to “K?” by mommy2boyz. I love how the journaling gives this memory context, and the expression of this little guy’s face seems perfect for the story.

"Mac 'n Cheese" by cnscrap

"Mac 'n Cheese" by cnscrap

“Mac ‘n Cheese” by cnscrap is a great example of how you can use a current experience to share stories from the past. There is a ton of real life information in the journaling … and I love the addition of the packaging photo. These may seem like small and perhaps even insignificant details now but will likely be quite interesting down the road.

"Birthday Letter" by bderby

"Birthday Letter" by bderby

“Birthday Letter” by bderby is an example of a tradition that I’ve always thought sounded really cool … writing a letter to your child on his/her birthday. This layout takes it even a step further with the pretty colors, carefully placed embellishments and subtle details. Makes me feel all warm & cozy just looking at it …

"Snapshots... 2010" by Kelley

"Snapshots... 2010" by Kelley

I’m a big fan of “roundup” type layouts and I love how Kelley did it in “Snapshots… 2010.” Gathering a photo from every month of the year in one place helps show how these kids have grown and changed … and the quote is the perfect touch to bring it all together. Very fun. 🙂

"Less TV, More Books" by pameladonnis

"Less TV, More Books" by pameladonnis

“Less TV, More Books” includes both memories and a bit of insight into why this family has made the choices it has – a great combo and something we don’t always remember to include in our scrapbooking. It’s also a great example of how you can tell a story even without a photo to go along with it.

"Watch Me Grow" by bcalberti

"Watch Me Grow" by bcalberti

“Watch Me Grow” by bcalberti is the ultimate roundup of baby photos! This would take a little time to put together, but it’s so cool to have all of these adorable memories together on one page. This would make a great wall hanging or framed piece … a bit like a shadow box.

"Tweets" by nevache

"Tweets" by nevache

Another cool photo-less layout, “Tweets” by nevache is a cool way to preserve a glimpse of everyday life, in the form of selected updates shared on Twitter.com. The little birdies with their flags and the limited use of color really make this layout pop, easily making it one of my favorites.

That wraps up this week’s Story Board! Check back every Wednesday for more everyday, real life scrapbooking inspiration!
