Don’t just share your story: SHOW it. Each page of the Mini Book – 30% off this month – creates the perfect place for you to share your life story.
Use the Mini Book to take a small look at who you are and how your life has changed. It’s a great keepsake and coffee table décor. Represent key stages of your life by selecting a few photos. Then choose a few stamps, dies, printed paper and accessories to use throughout the Mini Book to create a cohesive look.
Let’s explore this Project Me Story:
Begin you story with a baby photo. Below the photo you can journal to caption the photo or describe the significance of the event. Decorate with the Journey Blooms Stamp Set, Summer Romance Prints and Licorice Sparkle Tape. Add a bit of Dark Silk to Sparkle Drop accents to create a certain color theme. You’ll see these items repeated throughout the book to maintain a cohesive look.
Your next stage(s) could focus on a larger image with a full page just for journaling. The Marquee Type Stamp & Die Set is perfect to give your chapter or life stage a name. The Just Write Gels are great for journaling in this type of project medium – they coordinate with our FSJ colors too.
It’s always fun to look back out previous hairstyles and outfits. Continue your book on through Young Adulthood as you maintain the theme with more Journey Bloom Stamps and even a coordinating Branched Teardrop Die. Celebrate love / marriage with Summer Fun Chips, Amazing Accents and the script patterns from the Summer Romance Prints.
Commemorate a life lived through beautiful imagery. Connect with others through shared stories of loss and love. It’s a major turning point in your life that deserves time for journaling and reflection.
Celebrate new life. Share an image of your child’s baby photo or one of a niece or nephew. New life is blessing. Be sure to journal with dates of your image so you can recall the exact moment later on.
End your project with a photo of you today. This photo, while simple, will speak volumes. Each chapter of your life portrayed in this Mini Book has impacted who you are now.
Finish your Mini Book by decorating the cover. You can choose to start with the cover if you wish. Just be sure it complements the design and tone of your inside pages. Use the same stamp image life (ie Journey Blooms Stamp Set) and Sparkle Tape. Add an extra pattern to your cover with the Vintage Screen Stencil. Complete your cover by threading a Sweet Pear Satin Ribbon through the holes from the inside of the Mini Book and tie on the outside.
