For those of you who still need to sign up and get your coupon for the templates, go here (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7833).

For everyone else ready to go...

Find the photoshop file that is called mmarie_MyStory_Cover_Front&Back_temp

This will be your cover and the back of your mini book. You can use the template exactly or customize it to your liking.
Here is an example of a cover page and back using my kits Beautiful Life and Life Story:

This is my daughter who loves looking at her baby pictures so I just put her baby pic on the back cover.

Let me know if you have any questions. Can't wait to see your pages!

So is this the front cover and the back of the front cover or is the second one the back cover?
In other words are we gluing these together back to back?

Great question! These are NOT glued back to back. When putting these pages together, I found I liked seeing what pages were going to be together better than two pages that would be glued back to back. Does that make sense? So this is the front cover and the very back of your book cover. So the outside of your book.

Then each template will have pages that will be "viewed" together. Tomorrow will be Page 1 and 2, and so forth.

This way you can coordinate colors and pictures better knowing these two pages will be seen together.

Please let me know if I need to explain anything further or if I'm saying too much. haha :)

Well, I got started on mine, and I really like it, but... It's turning out more, um, pretty, than my 6yr old son would like. So I'm saving it, and I'll try a more boyish kit for this time around... Maybe I'll go with a childish theme, like my Hybrid 101 book.

Here is mine. This is my grandson, Tanner. I used Min's awsome kit, Boys Fun. She asked what people wanted in this kit. I asked for and got Tae Kwon Do as part of the elements. Thanks so much, Min.

Here is mine, this is of grandson nr 1. Now I'll have to do 2 more.

I'm behind; got sick with bad wet cold and cough, nose running and eyes watering so bad I can hardly see my computer screen. UGH! Hope I can catch up! Here's my pages for Day 1 . . .


Hopefully, be back soon with more! Such a cute project! I'm trying to do the story of my extreme preemie grandson, born at 24 weeks at 1 pound 8 ounces, in NICU incubator for 6 months!

Decisions, decisions. This is an awesome project idea, but trying to come up with something more practical (ie. a Christmas gift for the Grandma's) was waaay too taxing. I asked my DH, "...should I do a heritage thing for the kids, or a 'year in review' for the Gma's?" He said, "Y-I-R," I said, "OK, great." Turns out I haven't taken as many "cute kid" shots in the last few months as I have in the past. What kind of Camera Mother am I?!?! Heritage it is. HERE (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=66401&title=becca-27s-story-covers&cat=1160) are my covers.
