Simple layouts for storytelling

by | Scrapbooking Ideas | 2 comments

Hi everyone! Dawn here as your guest blogger today – I am known in the digi world as “winkasheart”. I am so thrilled to have this opportunity!

Today I want to show you some layouts I have found that are simple, well put together, and have the one important thing in common – journaling. The reason I scrap is to put the stories of my family down for them and future generations. While I love looking and seeing pages that other people create, and I think they are awesome, they are not always for me. I want to see the stories and photos.

While I think journaling is very important, there are also times when it just isn’t needed. The perfect photo and title says it all! So you will see a couple of that type here also.

I read somewhere when I first started scrapping, that when people look through your albums, people should be able to get the story without you sitting there explaining everything. So that is my goal when I scrap.

The following pages tell the whole story, yet are still pretty simple so you can get them done in a reasonable time and not have to spend all day on them. You can finish, have the story, the photo, and move on to the next page. I hope you enjoy seeing these pages as much as I liked them! All pages are linked to the gallery so you can see credits and even leave them some love while you are there.
