Nitty Gritty – AE

Last week I had the urge to create another 8×11 full photo layout using Ali’s Details story kit. I combined digital elements from the Details story kit and physical elements from past story kits. If you are curious and want to learn more about hybrid scrapbooking I highly recommend Ali’s Hybrid class, it really covers all the topics of hybrid scrapbooking.

To create this layout I edited a picture of my three daughters, once I was happy with the composition I added the number 3 from the Details kit. I changed the color to light pink and decreased the opacity as I still wanted to see the picture through the digital element. Afterwards I added the nitty-gritty title, again from the same kit and the journaling above the title. The “gotta love this” diecut is from Ali’s summer diecut variety pack.

I printed a 4×6 journaling card from the Details kit to use as pattern paper. I’ve always enjoyed adding a large photo corner to a project, I’ve been doing this for many year and thought this technique was ideal to balance the large 3 on the opposite side.

I love how this layout turned out, hybrid scrapbooking truly is so versatile and fun.

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.

  1. I am pretty sure that that layout is of Old Fort Henry – being a Kingston woman, I am pretty familiar with the place. Just to be sure, I checked your Instagram account and there was a picture of the Gatineau plant sculptures. I have been following your work for a long time and although I must have known you were Canadian, I didn’t know that you were kind of local. Love the layout and love your work.

    1. Thanks Joan for the lovely comment! It is Fort Henry, we took a day trip from Ottawa this summer. I hadn’t been to Kingston since I was in my 20s, it’s always great to go back!
