Scrapbook Journaling – Starbucks and me!

A simple journal makes a fabulous way to preserve and document your life.  It’s quicker and easier than designing an entire 12 x 12 scrapbook page and gets to the heart of…well, your heart!

Up until about  a year ago, I ONLY scrapbooked the "12 x 12 way".  Now that I use what I like to call the "storytelling method", I’ve been scrapbooking in a variety of ways.

This page took me less than 30 minutes to put together and tells how I began drinking coffee, my favorite kind and a bit about our trip to Seattle (the first Starbucks, of course!).  THE STORY is the star here.

I encourage you to get an archival journal, an archival pen (or 2 or 12) and sit down once in a while and write down what is on your mind.  Grab a photo or 2 (or none, even!) and add them to your entry.

As I work on my personal journal, I will be sharing some of my entries here, some on my newsletter and some on StampNation.  Stay tuned to be inspired.

And if you want the low-down on the "storytelling method" CLICK HERE to learn about how to get your copy of the book I wrote on the subject. 

What else will you learn from reading my book?

  • You DON’T have to scrap it all!  I’m serious!  And I will teach you how to live this idea!
  • How to get started!  You will have a clear vision and purpose. 
  • You will be ready to embark on YOUR journey to scrapbooking freedom!

Happy stamping and Journaling!
