    Fabulous podcast today!!! 

  • lainie9

    Thanks, Danielle! :)

    Thanks for the fun interview Lain. I’m with you ~ I ordered the digital version of the book shortly after it first came out but I definitely think I need to get a hard copy; there’s just something about holding a book in my hands and being able to flip through it for inspiration. I like that the book included some scrapbookers I’d never heard of before and enjoyed seeing new styles and picking up little bits of inspiration.

  • Ellie Augustin

    Oh my gosh I LOVE this podcast!  I can see this would be such an amazing burst of inspiration. Would love to have that book in my scrap area! Thanks so much for another awesome podcast.

  • Jane

    Great podcast. I like the tip on adding key information (5 w’s) I’ve been scrapping for a long time and when I look back at some layouts I see I have forgot the date. Thanks, Jane S

  • Tracy

    For me, Ihe tip to purge that “AMAZING product” that remains unused in your stash years after purchase.  I am currently reoganizing revamping my entire strap storage systems and scrap space.  There is simply too much that I have paid “good money for” that I’ve been keeping it in
    my stash “just in case” and Istill haven’t used it? Recommendation? TOSS IT!  Okay, then.  I’ll try harder :-)  This book has all sorts of great chapters that I think would be very  useful!  Thanks, Tracy

    The layout is just so gorgeous – I want to hold it in my hand! :)

    Loved hearing about the process of putting together “Everyday Storyteller “. Great interview! I bought my ebook copy the first day, and although I love, love it, I miss the feel and smell of a real-live-hold-it-in-my-hands book. I need, need a hard copy. I love that it’s full of a wonderful variety of articles. One that I especially enjoyed was “Journaling the Way You Think” by Betsy Sammarco.

  • Margaret

    Loved the podcast today. From Jennifer Wilson’s site I learned that this book would be so helpful with ideas,
    how to’s and lots of inspiration. Thanks so much for the chance to win.

  • Jeannett_mcgee

    Looks like a great book.  I would love to win a copy.  I like all the Journaling and story telling tips.  Thanks. 

  • Dmdlsparks

    Enjoyed the podcast! Would love to have the book.

  • Benessi

    great giveaway, thanks so much! i don’t have this book yet but keeping my fingers crossed!

  • Sharon Leigh

    I went and downloaded the table of contents and I love the topics. I especially love the topics under “capturing moments”. Journaling outside the box and scrapbooking using an iPad, this book sounds awesome. Thanks for the give a way.

    Another insightful podcast. Thanks. Heard about Everyday Storyteller for a bit now, looked at the contents, and sneak preview. Unfortunately, I came away feeling like it was too generalized or too little of  it pertained to what I needed/looking for in my little ‘scrap world’. 

    Lately (thru my own fault), I’ve been feeling deluged with information, and the thought of ANOTHER source of info (however wonderful) was overwhelming. Even checked out her web-site Simple Scrapper (& almost joined). All great stuff but, again, too much. AND then I heard your podcast and interview with Jennifer Wilson, and now I’m on on the bandwagon. It looks like a beautiful ‘reference’ book and would love to have it in my library. Thanks for the opportunity.

  • Elise Thomasset

    Oh, what a beautiful book! What a great giveaway.
    Thanks so much!

  • Annie Bidia

    Sounds like an amazing book with a lot of eye candy and tips to get the creative juices going!  I’m excited about the whole book!

  • Laura P.

    I watched the sneak peek with Amy Tan and think the book looks amazing! The part Amy contributed looks to be right up my alley. I seem to collect so much ephemera but am stumped as to how to include it in my layouts. Thanks for the opportunity to win a copy!

  • Norma Rowland

    I’ve been hearing about this book for a while and have been really interested, but now…I GOTTA HAVE IT!  The whole book sounds great, but the 2 things that really grabbed my attention were “Looking Forward and Back to Create Meaningful Stories” and “Using Digital Elements and Papers on Traditional Layouts.”  Thanks for another great podcast, and for this great giveaway!

  • Gela

    This sounds like a must have book for those of us who have trouble with journaling. I looked at the table of contents and there are several chapters that will help me get beyond the who, what, where, when. Great podcast as always. 

  • Bonnie

    I’m excited to see the different styles of all the different scrappers in the book. The book sounds great and I’d love to  get a copy!

  • StudioWendy

    Fun interview with Jennifer! I am a big fan of graphic design and I keep hearing how beautiful this book is, so I’d love to see it!
