Stories I Love GIVEAWAY...

taken from ctmh's blog...

Stories I Love Giveaway from Stacy Julian!

We all have photos that hold a special place in our hearts. They remind us of something or someone, and they often have detailed, personal stories that go with them. Stories I Love, the newest program from Story by Stacy™, gives you permission to bring your most treasured photos together in one album and teaches you how to write the unique stories that go along with them.

Your favorite photos may not be the ones that are the most pretty. They may not have the best lighting. They could be candid or staged. They could be from a special occasion or from everyday life. What makes them important are the memories they represent and what you feel when you look at them. That’s what Stories I Love is all about. Each Stories I Love workshop kit comes with a 6″ x 8″ album, ten 6″ x 8″ Memory Protectors™, one title page, one closing page, story pages, base pages, and two sticker sheets. The workbook included in the kit walks you through the steps of exploring the story behind one photo, writing that story, and then creating a 6″ x 8″ layout with just that story and photo.

Are you ready to make your own Stories I Love album? Watch the video below to hear directly from Stacy about this new program and to find out how you can win your very own Stories I Love workshop kit!
You have until 11 a.m. (MST) Thursday, January 17, to enter in the giveaway. Winners will be notified by email on Thursday.
The memories behind the photos you cherish are stories only YOU can tell. Recording your thoughts and feelings transforms every layout you make into a treasured keepsake. We can’t wait to see what you create with Stories I Love!

Very IMPORTANT to me with H2H...

This week's H2H Challenge is one where ALL the DT Members are participating and we are challenging you to create something about the IMPORTANT THINGS!

I chose to use some of our ALPHABET STAMP SETS that are on SALE this month as part of CTMH Celebrating Jeanette's 35 YEARS of CREATIVITY!

In this layout, I used the Classroom Alphabets (solid and outline) to create my title then I took all my bible verses that I randomly write down and put in my Planner to remind me how BLESSED I am by His Grace and Mercy!!! 

This layout came together rather quickly because I literally just took all the post-it notes out of my old planner (getting my 2019 Planner ready anyway) and stuck down to the layout. I added the hearts, crosses (plus symbols) and dots in the bare places then doodled around the edge with my Journaling Pen. Even the hearts, crosses and dots are part of Erin's Hand which you can get for 35% off this month!

I hope you'll play along with us this month and show us what are the things that are important to you! Head on over to the H2H Blog and see what the other DT Members have to share and to link up your CTMH project!
