This is your story. Do it YOUR way. I write in my journal and scrap pages inspired by my journal entries. Two of my CT journal directly on their scrapbook pages and don't keep a separate paper journal. Others keep only a paper or computer journal and are waiting to create the scrapbook pages at a later date. There is no wrong way to do this, just pick up pen or mouse and DO IT. You can join me at any time with this series. You can scrap just the questions/prompts that inspire you, or all of them. You can scrap from the current question and go forward, or you can start at question 1 and move through them in order.
Each post (every other week) I will share the current question/prompt and layouts created by myself, my creative team or scrapbooking friends.
Note about sharing layouts from Cole:
We would LOVE for you to share YOUR layout's with us! Just create a 600x600 px jpg layout and email it to Cole firstname.lastname@example.org subject line D.Y.L Layout! With your permission, I will post it to the MyMemories BLOG DYL Series (right here), Instagram, Pinterest & Twitter. Along with your layout, please do include the question/prompt number and the name of the My Memories designer(s) and the name of their product(s) you used. If you would like to post it directly to our MyMemories Facebook wall please click HERE. You can also post your layouts in the MyMemories Forum HERE.
Family time when celebrating our holidays is a very special time. So much of our family history is centered around the celebrations of our national holidays.
You should be describing in your journal and in your layouts the seasonal traditions your family experienced ... the focus this week is on Christmas past. (that sounds rather like Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" doesn't it?)
Here are some marvelous layouts from my creative team to provide you some inspiration:
These two layouts were made using my brand new collection THE BEST GIFTS. This nontraditional holiday collection is perfect for all types of photos: family, pets, children, romantic, silly ... but especially for Christmas past as these layouts demonstrate.
These next four layouts were made using my retiring collection: THE 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS. You can grab it for 75% off through the end of the month and then it will be gone. (I have to make way for newer work; but I admit retiring this collection makes me sad. It is one of my all time favorite.)
The layouts do not make me sad; they are some of the most cheerful ever. I hope they provide you with inspiration to scrap some of your Christmas past photos.
