Joanna Campbell Slan is apparently one of the most popular scrapbook writers on the market today, and with good reason. She writes clearly and warmly, has a winning style full of humor and a down-to-earth point of view. Her books are informative and knowledgeable; they also fill many gaps in the scrapbooking industry.
Scrapbook Storytelling is a great example of the author's early scrapbook offerings. Here, the reader is gently encouraged to take stock of their photos, plan pages and journal with an eye toward one's ultimate purpose - brag book, heritage, wedding, travel, etc? All aspects of the art of using photos and journaling, design and color, accents and gimmicks are explored as a means to tell whatever story you are trying to tell through your album. The author never assumes that you already know about a technique, page style or trick: there's even a major section dedicated to a glossary of common scrapbooking terms. An entire section is devoted to taking better pictures. If I were an absolute beginner to scrapbooking, this book would be a lifesaver in many ways.
I had to subtract one star because four years after the first printing, Scrapbook Storytelling is starting to look a bit dated. For instance, Joanna Campbell Slan lists stickers, die cuts and odd bits of memorabilia as the main accents and page decorations to consider in a layout. Since 1999 there have been an explosion of products and new techniques that came too late to make it into this book (for example, quilling, chalking, tags, eyelets...I could go on and on). Then, too, new styles and looks for the patterned papers and colors are currently replacing the ones used by the author. For those scrappaholics who purchase scrapping books to get ideas for their layouts, these will already seem very passé.
The other reason I subtracted a star is the glaring lack of information on computer-related techniques, equipment and software. Digital cameras are not even mentioned. Although many scrapbookers get by just fine without ever going near a computer, photo editing programs, computer fonts, home photo printing and even whole page layout software are increasingly important to the scrapbooker and should have more focus in a book like this. I hope there's an updated version in the works, because a good low-pressure, basic scrapbooking guide like this is invaluable to newbies.

Wonderful scrapbook journaling guide to tell a story of family

While the layouts are very dated (circa 1998), the text and ideas in this book are phenomenal!! There are literally tons of creative ideas about how to tell your stories clearly, concisely, and interestingly!

This should be viewed as a book specifically about journaling!

Love this book!

This book is not just a book of great layouts, though it certainly has those! And it's not just tips on journaling either. Joanna Campbell Slan does an outstanding job of teaching you how to tell the stories behind your pictures.
The layouts are wonderful, and not as impossible-looking as so many layouts are in other books! But what's important is that she shows how scrapbooking can be used for SO many situations. It's not just a hobby for moms with young children.
I really enjoyed reading this book, and looking at her layouts. She shares a lot of her own scrapbook pages and by the end of the book, we get to know her son Michael and we feel better equipped to scrapbook the stories of OUR lives.
There was a poignant section about scrapbooking the not-so-good memories. Joanna uses her photos and journaling to create a memorial page for her nephew Josh who was killed just before his 5th birthday.
Probably the most helpful part of the book is all the journaling/storytelling tips! The author even includes questionnaires to fill out as you interview your family members. I enjoyed the fact that the layouts are graded by how easy/difficult they are. You can look that up in the index and also see what materials are necessary.
By the end of the book, I really feel that I had gotten to know Joanna quite well - and isn't that the goal of our scrapbooks, to share ourselves with future generations?
Also, Joanna has a website ... where you can download templates, access helpful hints, and link to other scrapbooking websites.
Happy Scrappin'!

I often feel like I have a lot to say about my scrapbook pages, but don't know where to start in recording it. The main thing that this book has done is help me to organize my thoughts so that I can more clearly and accurately tell the story.
Joanna Campbell Slan gives many tips for recalling memories, finding out information from family members, and using memorabilia in your pages. She not only focuses on using words to tell a story, but on using your pictures, too.
While you may not be able to construct a total family or personal narrative by using the suggestions here (that's not what this particular book is about anyway) you will definitely be able create journaling in your pages that will tell the story behind the pictures and carry your legacy to the future!

Slan's book is Ok. No more, no less.
This book is geared towards people who create scrapbooks, not people who want to write their life's story. Slan gives examples and advice on how to go beyond the who-what-where-when-why style. However, she doesn't explain how to write a long narrative, how to write more than "the kids at the beach". She doesn't show examples of her writing. Even though there are lots of pictures in her book, I am always amazed that while she is a professional author, she has very little journaling on her scrapbook pages! I know people that I think of as being fairly casual writers, if at all, and they write much more than she does. Certainly don't buy this book hoping to find new ways to incorporate journaling into your scrapbook layouts.
The book that taught me to go beyond simple "bullet point" journaling is Denis Ledoux's "Photo Scribe". This book will not teach you how to write long narratives. It is a start... but only that.
