The new summer issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine is now available and this year my column in each issue will include a traditional layout and a Project Life® spread and a fun "summer manifesto" download (click here to see all the free downloads from this issue).
Today I'm sharing the full images of my layouts from this article here but invite you to click over and download your own FREE digital copy of the magazine and read my full article that includes much more about the concept and ideas related to each layout. You can also become a subscriber and have it delivered to your home address (awesome) or pick it up at Barnes & Noble. They have even set it up where you can download just a PDF of my article: Spark Your Story.
Here's a look at the pages I created for this issue with a focus on creating a summer manifesto and documenting the stories of your summer. Those of you who have been reading for awhile might remember my manifesto from last summer - I created a layout to go along with that intention. My hope is to come up with a new manifesto for this summer and share it here soon.
First up, a Project Life® spread for a week during last August (2015):
For this spread I documented a series of summer stories - you could totally do this even if you don't do a regular weekly Project Life® spread. I paired photos with white borders + a series of repeated journal cards created using my 3x4 Numbers Stamp and my Seasons Stamp Set.
I love the idea of looking for summer stories, one per day, over the course of a week.
