Say hello to a new Story Theme for my Story subscription program: Roots.
This month we are telling stories of where we come from (who, where, when, etc), what kinds of roots we are planting today, and maybe even who we are rooting for. This theme is a great jumping off point for including more stories from your past in your memory keeping projects.
If you are already a subscriber to you can now access the content in the classroom (make sure you are logged in to your account).
If you are new to the Story Subscription program, check out all the details here.
Here's a look at the Story Kit™ contents for Roots:
And the Story Stamp™:
I can't wait to use that day of the week timeline.
We also have a Digital Story Kit™ subscription available that includes access to the classroom content.
Here's a look at what's included for Roots:
Here's a video overview of the products included in the kits this month:
And a couple peeks at the layouts I created with the kits this month (f ull details, including process videos and how-to handout, are included with subscription):
Let's tell stories together!
YESTERDAY & TODAY AND 31 THINGS NOW AVAILABLE AS A SELF-PACED WORKSHOPS
If you are looking for additional opportunities to learn more about memory keeping with an emphasis on storytelling, check out the self-paced versions of two of my popular workshops: Yesterday & Today and 31 Things.
About Yesterday & Today: The goal of Yesterday & Today is to help you meaningfully document and celebrate life by looking to the past before approaching the stories of today. The benefit of looking to the past is that we gain perspective. We see things differently after developing an awareness of what we know and what we wished we knew. Looking back, even if we're just viewing old photos of people we don't know, can change the way we approach the photos we take and the stories we tell today. This workshop would be a great companion to this month's Story theme. Topics this workshop addresses include:
- Where do you begin creating with photos from generations past?
- What do you wish you knew about your parents when they were growing up?
- How do you document the challenging times in your life?
- How do you create layouts that tell special stories when you don't have any photos?
- What are the lessons of your life so far?
About 31 Things (31 More Things is coming this fall so this is a great time to take this class before taking the live version of 31 More Things):
This self-paced workshop includes a collection of 31 prompts that invite you to document some"thing" about your life right now via a single photo and words. Some of the topics include: jewelry, conversation, technology, shoes, think, chores, and smell. Gather your photo and words for each prompt into a 12x12 album (using the templates and tutorials provided in the workshop) or simply use the prompts as jumping off points for blog posts, personal journaling, etc. Full details here.
