  1. I’m planning to use mine to document our next 6 months which will be life changing. My husband and I will both retire by July, we are selling our ‘sticks and bricks’ home and going to live in our motor home full time! We are down sizing, packing, sorting, selling, tossing and everything in between to be ready for this new adventure!

  2. I think True Story would be amazing to record our family get together after 18 months of being kept apart due to covid rules, border closures etc. It was so good to catch up and celebrate belated birthdays, achievements and much more all in 1 weekend..

  3. Such an amazing album ❤️❤️ I would love to use it for nieces to record their special memories from the year with them.

  4. I still have to choose pictures for my album but I think they will just be everyday family type photos. This album is so cute and I love how interactive it it!

  5. I am going to use mine to make an album for my niece in Ireland who has an 18 month old and pregnant with her second child, living away from home in Australia with her Irish husband. I thought it would be a beautiful way to document some of her family photos for her.

  6. I love the size of this album and the fun Flip Flaps! I’d make a special album from my last couple of trips to Disneyland! It is a very special place for me. I have a photo of myself with my Dad in front of the White Rabbit’s cottage. I was about 6 at the time, in around 1961, and I have been having my picture taken in the same spot whenever I get to visit The Park!

  7. I would use True Story to document the crazy things my family says or does that we simply “can’t make up”! Having 3 boys and a girl as the youngest has sure made lots of those “true story” moments!!

  8. I’d love to use True Story to document the memories I have visiting my mother in NY from Washington. She died a year ago. Due to covid & my own health issues I wasn’t able to see her before she passed or go back for her funeral. I think going through this would settle my heart & mind.

  9. I will be doing a couple of these albums but the first one will be about my CTMH business and all the great memories from running workshops, classes and retreats

  10. My daughter & I recently enjoyed time away after her high school graduation. We made lots of beautiful memories doing fun things together & it is a time I will always cherish. This album will be perfect to record all the moments we shared.

  11. I am planning on using mine to document the struggles of living with 3 disability children during this awful time of COVID. Documenting the good and bad times.

  12. ♥️🎊love this! Would totally scrap the story of how my husband and I met and married for our grandchildren to have to look through at our place and then pass down to one of them as a keepsake! Awesome idea 💡 we married at the top of a mountain flew up by helicopter!

  13. I love all the interactive elements on this project. Such a fun Mini Album – and the cutest papers and elements ever! This would make the perfect baby gift for a dear friend’s daughter who is actually due today!

  14. I love that this album is interactive. This would be such a great album to show customers how to make. I was thinking this would be a great album for photos of my daughter during her toddler years. (Currently 23).

  15. After not being able to travel for so long and finally getting away for a short break, I plan to use one of these gorgeous kits to document the fun we had!

  16. Love this kit! I can’t wait to make it and document our December ‘21! We got to see all the grandkids! From a blizzard to celebrate our granddaughter’s 8th birthday in Idaho, to spending Christmas in Texas with our youngest grandson. Our granddaughter has CF and loves when I make her albums.

  17. My step daughter has just started scrapbooking and is going to do a road trip around the top of the South Island, NZ, this album would be amazing to keep all her trip memories in 🙂

  18. I think one each of these for my adult daughters who no longer live at home, would let them know how much we love and respect them.

  19. I’m giving one completed album to a close friend of mine who has been very sick in 2021. She has twin daughters, who I love, and together they can capture their story for 2021.
    I also want to do a second album for my daughter-in-law who has a new born so they can capture the journey of the introduction of Banks to the family unit.

  20. I think I would gift it to a dear friend having her 60th birthday this year, showing all the fun times we have had together over the years.

  21. I plan on creating 3 albums. One for each of my kids. It will be filled with moments shared with each one. I’ve already started sorting photos. Would love to see more interactive projects like this in the future.

    • I am using this album to document my daughter’s school trip to Washington DC. It’s perfect for this! I am also going to get another one to document her Senior Year! This is my favorite CTMH product ever! I really hope to see more albums like this in the future!!!

  22. I have lots of pictures from when I was a little girl. I think this would be a great kit to start scrapbooking them.

  23. I was planning to create a story book for my precious grand daughter and this came at the oppotune time.I picked several ideas on journaling and including photos and cannot wait to start on the project as soon as I get home.

  24. Just had our 1st vacation in a VERY long time and will use it to document all the True Stories that happened there! <3 Thank you for the opportunity 🙂

  25. I just love this interactive album. I will use it to scrapbook the adventures I take my mom on! I always try to find something new and interesting for us to do together.

  26. I plan to use this to document the 13-year-old trips I take with each of my kids. I love all the little flip-flops and ways to tell our story! I plan to have my teenagers do some of the journaling and help create the album so that they can have a wonderful keepsake for years to come.

  27. My daughter wants to fill it with photos of her besties, so I’ll have to get one of my own to document my bestie and I (friends since we were 4)

  28. I absolutely love this mini album! The color palette speaks to me and I love all of the little details throughout. I would use this to document my daughter’s first year of school.

  29. I think this may be the perfect project to document all the craziness of 2020. I took so many pictures of random little things, like social distancing signs,etc., that I wanted to document in some way, This would allow me to do that, while highlighting the more important moments.

  30. I’ll be gifting the True Story to a very creative new Mom. She’ll love all the creative ways to showcase her baby’s milestones and special moments.

  31. I really like this project and am amazed at how many pictures it will hold. Now I just have to narrow down all the possibilities I can do and then get started!

  32. I would make this book and give it to my disabled daughter who loves to keep pictures of her family so she could flip through it anytime and see her loved ones.

  33. Love this true story kit! The amount of pictures it holds make it perfect to make for my friend who just had her first grandbaby! I may need more than one because I want to make one with my grand dogs for me. Then of course so many ideas can turn into 12×12 layouts easy also. So many ideas.

  34. Just signed up for the blog, yeah!!! I would love to gift my free True Story album kit! I love spreading the joy of crating around!
