Hello Story week 8

Ali Edwards Hello Story class provided by Big Picture Classes, continues to be one of the best classes I have taken.  This week our assignment is to use maps to tell our story.  I really enjoyed this and from this, I now have many stories I want to document!  



I loved putting this simple imformation down on paper.  I will probably journal some childhood memories and put that more detailed information in my Project Life album next to this layout.  

I also want to share 2 layouts I made last weekend.  The first is “clean out some embellishment” layout!  I really wanted to use up a lot of some pretty things.  I made a heart!  I found a cute little picture to put on it!   The second layout I had some basic grey hipster tape strips I wanted to use up.  They were in a Studio Calico kit and I am cleaning things out after my kit kill! 🙂  It was fun to play this way!  Image


Thank you for visiting my site.  Much grace be with you as you continue on today. Jesus is Lord!   LUBM    Debbie


Hello Story week 7

Ali Edwards Hello Story class at Big Picture classes has been a favorite of mine.  This week the story tool given was using pie charts to tell a more detailed story.  In this class, I have been given tools to help me tell stories I have wanted to tell. Her ideas gave me a way to do so.  I am very thankful for this class.  This week I made a layout about the history of our “homes”, with a little detail about our current home. Our nest.

I used Studio Calico’s Marks & Co. kit, S.C. wood veneers, Little Yellow Bicycle’s pins.  It is so fun to get on paper, these stories that I have wanted to tell.

Much blessing to you all as today’s story is lived out in your lives. Have a great day!   LUBM     Debbie

Hello Story, Scrapbook layouts:

I am home from my trip.  In week 5 Ali Edwards shared “mathematics” as a tool to tell our story.  Hello Story is her class with Big Picture classes giving story structure principles to assist in our scrap booking stories. It’s been an awesome class. I was not able to do week 5 layouts, but today I did week 6.  The story structure is to have a 6 word story.  It’s been fun to define story’s using just 6 words. Some of her examples also had some journaling in addition to supplement the 6 words. I cheated in that an ampersand might be another word.  Here is the layout I just finished.  Week 6: a 6 word story. The paper in this layout is from the Studio Calico kit Marks & Co.

The day before I left for my trip, I went to a 12 hour crop. I only stayed 8 hours, but I made a few layouts I thought I would share with you.   The paper for these layouts were from the Studio Calico kit Planetarium.

At the end of the crop, I used a few scraps I had left to make this layout. When I got home, I dribbled some navy mist on it to finish it, but I do not have a photo of it finished.

I had a wonderful time at the crop, left early the next day to go to Seattle to a  memorial for my father.  It was a very sweet time and a very good trip.  I am recovering as travel exhausts me, but I felt so glad to be able to go.  My daughter and I with her friend, spent 4 days getting her home ready for her dear baby daughter’s arrival. I get to go again mid September for our second grand child’s birth.  SWEET DAYS AHEAD!

Much grace to you all as a new day arrives.  LUBM        Debbie
