Oh, you’re looking for a longer answer? Ok. 😉
I’ve been digging around in the paper crafting industry for a few years now- I’ve seen trends come and go. I’ve watched in anticipation for the releases of some “must-have” paper lines only to discover that when I receive the papers, I find them “too cute to use.” Psshhh…
We’re done with that, ok? Time to use the cuteness and make beautiful messes in order to write our stories.
The shop is to sell the cuteness & the blog is to show you how to USE the cuteness.
Many of you, I’m sure, are much more creative and crafty than I am. And for that, I say thank you for letting me learn from you. To everyone else who might just be in the beginning stages of paper-crafting and storytelling (or as most of us call it, memory-keeping), I’m going to give you ideas and inspiration using my own personal books that you’re very much welcome to duplicate. I only ask for one thing- for you to let go, have fun, not worry about making mistakes, and learn to find your own personal style. Cause you’ve got one!
Here are the books I’ll be using to start:
I actually created these a while back- they were both prototypes made just for me as I learned the ins and outs of bookbinding. I do have some things stuffed inside, but nothing has been glued down yet. That’s ok- we’ll just do it together, yeah?
I can’t wait to share with you newbies how EASY it is to store your memories. You can be as fancy or as messy as you’re little heart desires (or your OCD can handle), but either way, I’m sure it will soon become a habit that you’ll never need to break. Cause your story matters, and you’re the only one that can tell it.
