Summer Found in Storyline Chapters
To say I am finding Storyline Chapters is very useful for ALL the stories, is an understatement.
As I have been sharing here and on my own blog, there are differing ways I am using Storyline Chapters and the inserts and embellishments. In full throttle right now are my summer stories.
Summer stories and different ways to add those stories in. For today’s Storyline Chapters post, I am trying to add in quite a few photos to a one page spread.
As with most of our summer exploration trips of late, I have been adding a full page photo to the left side of the insert. And dang, if that photo does not look like the one from the story before it. But we have been hiking a lot in one area. So…there’s that.
On the facing page, I have created several ‘mini’ pages of photos. To help break up all that color and foliage, I made a vellum page as a space for the title and a cluster of embellishments. Mainly because that is just my way. But I do love all the photos + words.
Turn the vellum title page, and there are three mini pages that is home to almost 12 photos. This was a matter of simply wanting to have as many photos from this hiking trek as I could possibly get on this one page spread. OK…so I cheated a little bit. I trimmed out the pages from the inserts and just made them smaller so that I could have these super interactive pages right here.
These photos are all just about 4-inches wide. I printed at home so I could adjust each one to the width of the page. I used the Storyline Chapters tabs found in the Journaler Project Pad to index each of the pages.
Last page. Super simple embellishing. Great focus on the photos.
On the back of the mini pages, I added in some additional embellishment clusters as well as some journaling. I love how this turned out. In case you are wondering, I just said that out loud in a very loud voice.
Then…I added in the grid page (you can see that post HERE) to the last full page of the insert. And done!
That’s about 20 photos on ‘one’ Storyline Chapters Insert page spread. I’m lovin’ it. Hope you are inspired to document life and tell your story.
