Tell It's Story ebook, $US19 from Amy Schubert of Lemon and Raspberry

 I loved this book from the second I started reading it. Telling the story of the stuff of our lives really epitomises what scrapbooking is for me, stories of the pieces that make up the whole.

At 56 pages, it's a quick and easy read. The book is broken up into five sections, plus an introduction and conclusion. Sections include In Real Life, Photographing your Objects and Journaling your Memories. Each section is hyperlinked from the contents page, making it easy to move between chapters, or quickly go and read something you remembered at a later point.

As Amy says in the introduction
Every souvenir you bring home from vacation, every childhood toy you choose to keep, every cup that is 'yours' every morning - each one of those objects has a story. It is part of your story.
There is great information about the sorts of objects that have meaning, how to find the memory related to the object, how to photograph the object, and how to share those memories.

I've read this book so many times since I first downloaded it, I think it's a must for all memory-keepers, scrapbookers, bloggers.

  1. This does sound like a good book, but I never really like ebooks...there is just something about having a real book in front of me that I love, especially for this type of book...with pictures! Sounds like you really enjoyed the book though, thanks for sharing!

  2. This intrigues me and I'll definitely be checking it out - because it sounds like it ties in with Pick Your Precious. Interesting! Thank you
