Story Starter is the first product in the Story by Stacy line.  These 4" x 4" albums are designed for small stories - they come in three darling color choices and everything can be completed in a short amount of time.  The cute albums are afforable at only $13.95 each - and they come with premade page holders and a short workbook that helps plan the story and how you tell it.  For more samples, please visit my facebook group where we love sharing these sweet short stories at  and please share your work with us there! 

Short Story


Short Story is next in the Story by Stacy line and it is a project that will take a little more time, but it is worth it for the fabulous results!  These are slightly bigger, with the albums being 6" x 6" and the included workbook walks you through a whole new process of building a scrapbook album! 

"I don't have the time."      "I don't know where to start."


Those are the two things I have said and heard when it comes to scrapbooking - and it's totally not true with these albums.  I sort of think of these as "Zen and the art of scrapbooking!" 

These albums are designed to tell a smaller story - consider looking at your facebook albums and choosing one that has 25 or so pictures.  These albums are great for telling the slice of life stories and sharing everyday life.  Find out more at my facebook group, and share your artwork at
