The Power of Storytelling

Jennifer Wilson

I’m your guide here at Simple Scrapper. Our community helps people find what fills you up and fits your life in memory keeping.

October 27, 2013


To conclude the Week of Story, you’re totally going to want a hanky. (Sorry!) I came across an article via Twitter that shared a few essential elements of compelling stories and this powerful advertisement. I really liked the last point on completing a story arc, even in small spaces.

As memory keepers were are the authors of our own stories as well as, in most cases, those of our family members. While creating tearjerker pages like this video is not necessary, we do have a great opportunity to share what touches us most in our scrapbooking.

If you would like to bring story to the center of your memory keeping, don’t forget to use the code WEEKOFSTORY to save 25% on Story-First Scrapbooking, through October 31. Click here to buy the new book.
