Hi there! It's Celeste back again for another week of blogging. This week I've decided to tackle a few jump start ideas for journaling on pages. Sometimes I seem to have loads of photos that don't really tell a story, but I want them in my books with some meaningful journaling. Hopefully you'll gain some ideas for future pages. I'll be sharing layouts from the team and have a few downloadable freebies to share. So let's get started.
Interviews are a great way to learn more about your subject. An interesting idea would be to ask the same set of questions over time. Maybe on a birthday or New Year's or at the beginning of the school year. The questions will really tell a lot about your subject's interests as time goes by.But where to get lists of questions? I find that if you ask on your favorite forum there is invariably someone who chimes in with a list or page they've created. I've used the sites below before as well.
I used a combination of prompts from the sites above to create a couple of Q&A type pages. The first of my son...
And the second about my niece. I actually called her on the phone and asked her the questions!
Paula Gilarde asked her kids a series of questions. Some of their answers will make you go AWWW!
Another thing you can do is expand on just one answer and create a page around that. You could even put together a whole mini-album using the answers.When asked what his favorite book was, my son regularly answered the Percy Jackson series. I knew I had to devote a whole page to this in my books and the result was this page.
I promised freebies, didn't I?
This week five designers from One Story Down have generously provided downloadable journaling cards that you can use digitally or print to jump start your journaling on a page! Today's designer is Kathryn from the Edits. Kathryn not only designs fabulous digital scrapbooking products, she is a fabulous photographer who also has come up with some amazing actions and other tools to make your photos just pop. Be sure to check out her store!I tasked the lovely ladies from the write. click. scrapbook. team to use these cards this week on a page. Paula Gilarde used the cards in her Project Life album. I always seem to come up a photo or two short each week. An interview is a fabulous way to fill one or two of the blocks on your spread!
