Storyline Chapters | The Importance of Friendship Stories
Storyline Chapters has become such a beautiful way to tell stories. I am not sure what it is about this format that has awakened so many of us to story telling in a fresh new way. Maybe it’s the nice sized inserts that don’t overwhelm like sometimes a 12×12 page can. Maybe it’s the easy to use stickers and alphas and stamps that make this collection practically make itself. Maybe it’s the simplicity of this time of so many of us at home and having a bit more time to think and be reflective.
Whatever the reason may be, I like it!
Here today is another concept I want to introduce to. Another way I have been using the Storyline Chapter Inserts. An idea that has many possibilities but most of all captures a deep part of my heart.
A Storyline Chapters Insert dedicated to the importance of friendships.
In one of the Storyline Chapters Scrapbooker Inserts I am telling stories of my friends. Me and my friends. My girlfriend relationships. Girlfriend trips. Whatever comes to mind. I am adding it to this book. It has become a joy already. (See my Instagram feed this week for more pages in this album: @jamiepate )
I recently began to revisit the technique of photo stacks. For a tutorial on that idea, see this post HERE. A photo stack allows several photos to be on one page in a cascade of pages. For this page I was inspired to take photos from a few of our travels. You can see all those images HERE. It was so much fun to go back and try and find some of these photos. These pictures go back 17 years! The exercise of printing these photos, creating these pages, and writing these words was such an emotional celebration for me. Telling this story brought me so much joy. Remembering these moments in time and placing them all in one place. While not all inclusive with regard to the places we have been, indeed a beautiful telling of our story right here.
On the opposite side of the photo stack page I created a cluster of embellishments. I included a friend stamp I had in my stash. It was just fitting and found a home here.
I kept this page pretty simple. It was mostly for me to add more to the story by way of journaling. This is the part where we insert Tell Your Story.
I hope this inspires you to celebrate your friends. Celebrate those special moments in time. Those travels. Those snap shots of a different place, reminding you how blessed your are no matter what else is happening in life. Storyline Chapters is waiting for you to do just that.
Tell Your Story.
