Extended Story - Seas the Day

Story by Stacy is an exciting scrapbooking concept where we take a story and basically extend it beyond a 12" x 12" layout.  It can be extended in many different ways, with a variety of page types, shapes and sizes.  For this project, I chose to use the page types and sizes that are included in the Memory Protector combo set - a single 12" x 12" page, (I added a second one of these so I would have a left and right page), an 8 1/2" x 11" page back and front, a 6" x 6" page back and front, a 4" x 6" horizontal pages plus pocket page and a 3" x 4" horizontal pages plus pocket page.

As I explained this morning in my Facebook Live class in my VIP In All Sassiness Scrapbooking Group, I find such joy creating these extended story because I love to journal but also, I love creating them!  Little scraps and pieces here and there find a home on my layouts because there is so much more room to create.  

For me, I find that this concept works well when I have too many pictures, or story to tell, for a traditional 12" x 12" two page spread.  When I choose to use this concept, I choose a story that has a beginning and an end and yet has several stories within the greater story.  So for i.e. if you scroll down towards the bottom of this entry, you will see this project with my pictures--I chose to focus on my son's first time snorkeling.  I have pictures of him on the dock before we left, on the boat, of friends with us, and of him at the various stages of his adventure.  

If you have not tried an Extended Story project, I highly recommend it!  They are a lot of fun to create and even more rewarding to enjoy once they are completed.
