TN – Ali Edwards

The August Digital Kit by Ali Edwards has inspired me to create a TN spread featuring my oldest daughter. Sadly I have yet to get started on her TN, I have worked on her sisters but for some reason my wonderful tween is no longer a fan of me taking her picture. I did manage to snap this one on a recent trip to the lake, I”ll take what I can get and use it to my advantage.

The large scale picture was ideal to make a bold statement, I added a heart from Ali’s digital kit, I did slightly lighten the color of the heart to better reflect the color palette of my spread.

The journaling was created on one of the journaling cards from the August kit, however I did slightly modify the card. I used the quote that was on a 4×6 card from the same kit and added it to the top portion of the 3×4 card. The journaling was done with my electric typewritter, the card is longer than 4 inches and this was on purpose. When I trimmed the journaling card I didn’t trim the bottom portion as I didn’t know how long the journaling would be. Once the journaling was complete I was able to trim the card.

The accents were kept to a minimum and only featured the date and a chipboard arrow from a previous AE story kit. I always love working with large pictures, I love the bold statement they bring to any project.

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.
