Freebie Friday with Memoir Your Way

Happy Friday Stamp & Scrapbook Expo friends and fans, Becki here with another amazing giveaway. This time, I have something a little different that I’m really excited about. (Honestly, I wish that I could be eligible to win this prize.) This week we have a great book to share with you. Memoir Your Way: Tell Your Story Through Writing, Recipes, Quilts, Graphic Novels, and More is a fabulous new book.Here’s what you need to know about this book: Be inspired with this book for crafty people! Memoir Your Way: Tell Your Story Through Writing, Recipes, Quilts, Graphic Novels, and More is full of ideas for capturing meaningful moments, people, and places in our lives. The chapter titled “Reinvent Your Scrapbook” shows how to experiment with fun flaps, folds, pockets, and pull-outs to add stories to your pages. Why not use ideas from the food chapter to make a cookbook scrapbook that tells the stories behind each recipe? Or a fabric scrapbook that draws inspiration from the quilting chapter? The possibilities are endless! The book even includes chapters on nurturing children as storytellers, writing personal and family stories in a graphic novel format, and other memoir-related topics. The book’s six authors call themselves The Memoir Roundtable and include a writer, scrapbooker, cookbook editor, quilter, literacy expert, and graphic novelist.  In this example by co-author Katherine Nutt from the scrapbook chapter, the “cheese chest” opens to reveal a nonsense question-and-answer-game that her grandmother played with her.Here’s the story of a bear’s unexpected visit to a campsite (with moveable magnet character).This scrapbook keepsake for a favorite aunt highlights some special memories with her.
