Stories I Love Giveaway from Stacy Julian!

We all have photos that hold a special place in our hearts. They remind us of something or someone, and they often have detailed, personal stories that go with them. Stories I Love, the newest program from Story by Stacy™, gives you permission to bring your most treasured photos together in one album and teaches you how to write the unique stories that go along with them.

Your favorite photos may not be the ones that are the most pretty. They may not have the best lighting. They could be candid or staged. They could be from a special occasion or from everyday life. What makes them important are the memories they represent and what you feel when you look at them. That’s what Stories I Love is all about. Each Stories I Love workshop kit comes with a 6″ x 8″ album, ten 6″ x 8″ Memory Protectors™, one title page, one closing page, story pages, base pages, and two sticker sheets. The workbook included in the kit walks you through the steps of exploring the story behind one photo, writing that story, and then creating a 6″ x 8″ layout with just that story and photo.

You have until 11 a.m. (MST) Thursday, January 17, to enter in the giveaway. Winners will be notified by email on Thursday.

The memories behind the photos you cherish are stories only YOU can tell. Recording your thoughts and feelings transforms every layout you make into a treasured keepsake. We can’t wait to see what you create with Stories I Love!

  1. I shared the link. This is a fabulous way to learn to tell your story. I would start by using a photo from our vacation so that I can tell the real story behind the photo. Thanks for a chance to win.

  2. Oh my gosh, what a wonderful giveaway, and I know the first photo and story I would put in, is a photo of my husband and I trying to do a “selfie photo” at Christmas, and it just wasn’t working. The photos are terrible, but I am going to keep them, as it was too, too funny!! Will share on facebook, thanks for the opportunity to win! I have 3 of the other books by Stacy already!

  3. Love this give away. I shared and the photos would use is of my sons boots and sunset. This photo has A story and great memory that I love.

  4. I intend on making an album with photos of my mom in all her fun outfits she was famous for putting together for special occasions. I have always felt the photos truly showed my mom’s personality as a fun loving creative person.

  5. Love this! My first photo will be the whole family photo taken on Christmas Day. A beautiful one as everyone was there, including some recovering from illness, and everyone looks tired but happy!

  6. Wow 6×8 fabulous. First Picture I’m going to put in the stories I love album is the scan picture of my fourth grandbaby due in April 2019.

  7. A picture of my husband covered in Mud after completing his first Ultra Marathon! 32 miles of trails and for 7 of the 8 hours he ran it was raining! So proud of him

  8. I think it would be a picture of me as a small child …there were so many fun memories of what life was like that I would like to share with my grand kids and kids. It’s just something that doesn’t come up in conversation…..

  9. I love this and cannot wait to jump in and start documenting my favorite photos! The one that jumps to mind immediately is a picture of my oldest holding my youngest just a few days after she was born. The love and adoration makes me melt!

  10. I just think this book is adorable! I have a couple pictures of my kids meeting their youngest brother in the hospital last fall. I would love to tell this story!

  11. I would love to use the picture of my son making his first sandwich by himself…it is a somewhat ordinary picture but has a great story that goes with it!

  12. I have a pic of my husband all tangled up in the sheets as he was making the bed… it makes me laugh remembering how silly he was acting and I had to take a pic! I love this idea and can’t wait to make one of these albums!

  13. So many thoughts and such great ideas and support from CTMH and Stacy! One main thought is a picture of my oldest son and nephew who decided to be “mud monsters” one day…and with their “dinosaur” roars and claws – Something Fierce will be added to the story love!

  14. I would love to win. I am far behind I have 9 grandchildren my one granddaughter just did her very first solo competition along with all her other competitions and my other granddaughter is in gymnastics and came home with 5 medals.

  15. I made one of these albums years ago for convention under Stacy’s instructions. To this day it is my absolute FAVORITE album!!!!! Great idea for this kit!!! Pick me!!!

  16. My most treasured picture is one I have of my boys, about 3 and 6, running away from me down a forest path. The sun is shining through the trees, the leaves are just starting to change, it brings back SO MANY happy memories every time I look at it!

  17. I would love to do one of these Stories I love to share with my Peeps. I’d start it off with a photo of my niece at the fair. Love that photo because it was the first activity she did with our family. So Ooooh many memories

  18. My photo is a recent one of my children and I at the beach. We’re all smiling, all relaxed and all happy. 2018 was hard for my kids and I with my separation from my husband and everything that happened after so I treasure this one photo above all others, even though it’s a selfie, we’re all squashed in and it’s not framed properly. It’s still the best photo ever taken 💖

  19. Shared with my crafting group “All the Scrappin’ Ladies”. This is, hands down, my favorite of Story by Stacy products, and I really love her other mini-albums so that says a lot! Hope I win—will raffle it off to my scrapbook group (fingers crossed!).

  20. Oh! One of my favorite photos is me and my husband laughing so hard as a friend of ours made a toast to us at a surprise anniversary party our kids threw for us. It makes me tear up….we were married in a courthouse, so never had a real day to celebrate (might explain why I’m obsessed with wedding shows on tv!),…and I loved that moment caught on camera.

  21. The first photo I think of is of my Pop. He is sitting at the table with his cup of tea in front of him & my daughter had the camera & took the photo which made the camera angle low. I love the photo, he has a smile on his face & it just captures him beautifully.

  22. The Stories I Love are the photographs of the first days with our newly adopted daughter, taken in San Antonio, Texas. The photo I love most is the first picture taken by the social worker at the hospital. This was the day we became a family.

  23. I would love this album to the story of my grand-daughters 1st year as a Fulltime Ballet Student. She is 14 and I would use an amazing photo of her taken at her dance concert last year.

  24. I love this concept. I am going to use my new family pictures we took at Christmas. The grandkids great grandma passed away on December 31, 2018 after spending 4 wonderful days with us over Christmas. We have family pictures of them with great grandma!!

  25. Shared with my friends.
    One story I plan to share is the miracles that came together when we got our wheelchair van.

  26. Shared. First pict will be me and my mom. My mom passed last July and I have a special pict and story.

  27. Shared. I would LOVE to win one of these! A story I would tell is when my little guy plucked a hole in his peanut butter and jelly sandwich and was wearing it on his wrist like a bracelet while his older brother FREAKED OUT that the baby was WEARING his pita butta jewwy samich!

  28. The first photograph to go in this album will be me asleep in the aisle of a Sunderland Flying boat on route to Lord Howe Island. The hostess happily stepped over me the entire trip. PS I was only a little over 12 months old at the time

  29. Shared. There is a photo of myself I really like after coming home from the hairdressers. A favourite moment.

  30. This sounds like a truly inspirational concept! The picture I have in my mind right now is bringing back a sweet story to me. I can’t wait to get out other pictures (perhaps a short album for each of my children) and share some stories with them. (They are all adults now.)

  31. I love telling stories! I have a picture of my mom & dad who have gone home to be with the Lord years ago. They were laughing and happy and healthy. I can start with that one and tell stories about our happy home growing up! ❤️

  32. I love this and can’t wait to get started on my own Stories that I Love. The first photo/story that came to mind was when we took our son to his very first swim lesson. He has Cerebral Palsy and it was his first introduction to a pool, he was smiling so big and just loved every bit of that day and every lesson after that. I’d probably fill my first book or several with just the stories about him.

  33. I have a picture of me holding my new greatgrandaughter and the tears are running down my face. That is definitely one I want to put in this new book!

  34. The first picture that comes to mind is one of my granddaughter and I. She’s two and loves stickers. In the photo we’re both sitting on the floor. We both have stickers all over our faces!

  35. The photo of my parents on Easter Sunday 2009 is a very special one! It’s the last photo of my father, who died a month later. This photo would definitely belong in this album!

  36. I love the idea of writing the story behind the photos taken! My husband has been telling me to do this for years. 🙂
    My first thought, a picture of my sweet Granny and my daughter when she was three. My granny was hugging her as we were leaving and my daughter said “ Gwanny (Granny) I could just live with you forever!”
    This is one of our cherished photos. How we miss her but hold onto the sweet memories
