Writing to Remember: A Guide for Scrapbook Journaling
Updated: Apr 11, 2019
A look into the new book by Allison Davis
Since tomorrow is the big release day for Writing to Remember: A Guide for Scrapbook Journaling, I thought I would share a little about each of the six books.
You heard that right, six books.
What started as one idea and one book kept growing and growing. Combined it's a total of 1,139 pages. I figured nobody want to scroll to page 1,138 to find the information they might be looking for, so breaking them up was a must.
Here's what you get in each book:
1. Writing to Remember: Instructional - A 224 page book that includes an informative guide to scrapbook journaling and focuses on 12 different approaches to help you enhance your writing. Each of the 12 chapters for the approaches includes an in depth guide with breakdowns of different styles, layout examples, and ways to customize the approaches to fit the theme of your layout. This book also has over 1,300 journaling prompts specific to the approaches.
I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am for this book. I tried to think of all these different ways you can write for scrapbooking and it took off in directions that made me so fired up to share it with the world.
2. Writing to Remember: Sketches & Layouts - A 169 page book that includes 60 new sketches (12 one-page, 48 two-page) and 36 layout examples that are all designed with the 12 journaling approaches in mind. Each of the 12 approaches has five sketches, three with layout examples and two bonus sketches without layout examples.
Of course, I can't have a book about scrapbooking without including some sketches. It's just what we do at Scrapbook Generation. We are sketch-aholics.
The next four books cover 123 scrapbook themes like adoption, beach, memorial, Disney, family, holidays, seasons, sports, travel, weddings, and so much more. They are designed to help you find the right words for your scrapbook layouts.
3. Writing to Remember: Journaling Prompts - A 212-page book with over 4,400 journaling prompts, arranged by theme. The prompts include questions, sentences, and ideas that are intended to inspire your scrapbook journaling and also give you lots of ideas for potential layouts.
I seriously can't wait to use this book myself. You'll never struggle to find a topic to write or scrapbook about with this book. I see it as 4,400 potential layouts. It would even be a great resource for people who don't scrapbook but keep a journal. You could basically write your life history, your child's life history, your significant other's life history, your family's life history...and then some from this book.
4. Writing to Remember: Titles - A 191-page book with almost 11,000 titles, arranged by theme.
Finding the perfect title will be a breeze with this book. With 123 themes, it covers almost any topic you could think of. You'll never waste time trying to come up with a title again.
5. Writing to Remember: Quotes - A 158-page book that includes over 1,886 quotes, arranged by theme.
There are times that what someone else said so perfectly sums up the way we feel that we couldn't possibly articulate it better. Quotes are an easy way to add some words to your layout to support your theme and this book has 1,886 of them in 123 different themes.
6. Writing to Remember: Words & Phrases - A 185-page book that has over 10,000 words and phrases. Each theme has a collection of words and phrases commonly associated with that theme to help you find the perfect words for your scrapbook journaling.
When it comes to writing, word choice is a huge part of how enjoyable your writing is to read. This book is a fantastic resource for finding the right words for the theme of your layout.
And that's it! That's all she wrote, folks!
I'm beyond giddy with excitement to share this with everyone! Tomorrow get here quick!
