The Story Scrapbook Challenge

Hi there, Carol here with a new challenge for you.  You know how I like to talk, which also goes on to say I like to journal on my pages.  If you are like me this challenge is right up your alley.  And if you shy away from journaling, then maybe this is the push you’ve been waiting for.  Give your pages your voice.

I do love looking at scrap pages and seeing the who, where and when.  But I most love to read the what and the why.   We have stories in our lives that need to be told, they are important and life changing.  And there are stories that we have that are just that, stories.  Moments that make our families and our lives integrally ours.

So please join with us in The Story Scrapbook Challenge.  Here’s some examples from the creative team to inspire you.

Sam has created a terrific page and her story, wow.  It’s just a story but it’s such an important story to her.  I adore this page.  Supplies used:  Clean Stitched Borders: White No. 02,  Wood Veneer Word Arrows No. 01,  Striping Graphic Brushes and Stamps No. 01,  Basic Tags No. 02 (Katie Pertiet) plus some goodies from our freebie pack.


Janet has created a fantastic page about a life lesson, what a great way to tell the story of that time.  Supplies used:  Damask Tonals: Sunshine Paper Pack,  Watery Chevrons No. 02 Brushes and Stamps,  Taped Together Stacks No. 01,  Cardstock Tabs No. 02,  Assorted Tapes No. 03,  Vintage Envelopes No. 01,  Vintage Glittered Strips No. 01,  Messy Stamped Alphabet No. 04 Brushes and Stamps,  Messy Stamped Numbers and Extras Brushes and Stamps,  Basic Journal Spots,  Classic Curled Photo Frames No. 03,  Photo Corners: Colors No. 01,  Christmas Memories Collection,  Bead Scatterings No. 01,  Red, Black and Creme Kit,  Growing Up Hand Drawn Brushes,  Glen Moore Kit,  Hey There Kit,  Hot Floral Mini Kit,  Readymade Banners: Rainbow No. 01,  Roughed Up Pocket Cards: Rainbow No. 01,  Simple Spots: Months,  Labelled Journalers No. 07 Bundle  (Katie Pertiet).  Growing Up Hand Drawn Brushes (Ali Edwards).


And finally my own page.  Sometimes it’s enough just to tell the story, keep some of it hidden, just to get it out there.  Very therapeutic.  Supplies used:  Worn Borders No. 01,  Transylvanian Mini-Kit (Lynn Grieveson).  Grungy Ledger Grids Brushes and Stamps,  Striping Graphic Brushes and Stamps No. 01,  Elfin Magic Kit (Katie Pertiet).
