Dad Stories – Ali Edwards

Ali’s June digital kit inspired me to create a layout,yep that’s right a layout, ha! It felt great to get back to my roots and do a layout. To make this project even more interesting I used a vintage photograph taken by my mom when I was baby. I don’t think I’ve ever created a layout about my dad, I usually stick to my immediate family. It was fun to step out of my comfort zone and document a different story.


I used a digital card from the June kit as the title work. Originally I was going to create a 6×8 spread but the large title didn’t leave me much space for embellishments, so I opted to cut out the header and use it as a title for my layout.


I find that my layouts have evolved from layered paper to a grid design with lots of embellishments and very little pattern paper. One thing that doesn’t change is the use of white cardstock as a base, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to do away with using white cardstock.

I've been part of the scrapbook industry for over 10 years. My love of paper started at a very young age when I started hoarding a collection of notepads and fruit scented pens. My love of scrapbooking and memory keeping evolved when I became a mother. Over the course of my creative career, I've had the pleasure of designing for various manufactures; I currently design for Ali Edwards and Gossamer Blue. My style is eclectic with a flair for mixing embellishments, creating layers and a love for white space. As of two years ago, I shifted her creative focus to documenting our family’s daily activities with Project Life.
