Ali Edwards March Projects

Hello there! Today I want to share my Ali Edwards March projects with you. This month I created two layouts - one 12 x 12 and one 8.5 x 11. I've been loving switching up the size - it helps keep things fresh.

The stories I told this month are two of my favorites. This first one is a "Then & Now" comparison between my daughter and I wearing the same sweatshirt.

I don't often do stories like these, but I want to. I used the Ali Edwards | Old & New Digital Stamps printed on cardstock for the background of my layout and also added them directly to the photos in photoshop before I printed them. The "Life" part of the title comes from the Ali Edwards | This & That Digital Journal Cards, and the rest is handwritten by me on vellum with a Pentel Color Brush in Black.

In the video below, I mention another layout that uses AE digital brushes as a background, and here it is. It uses the Ali Edwards | For The Love Of Words Digital Stamps. I used the same phrase in a variety of colors and printed it out on my old Epson wide format printer.

The next layout tells the story of some amazing trees I saw, but more than that, it shows a piece of who I am. I am an emotional person. And by that, I mean that I am moved to tears by things that are amazing to me.

I used a mixture of Thickers, tiny Basic Grey alphabet stickers, and the Ali Edwards | Thicker Travel Digital Brushes for my title. I love creating a longer, large title sometimes. In this case, it's an extension of the journaling and I think it makes you want to know more.

I also added in some Pink Paislee tiny word stickers and some of the products from my February Craft Story Kit. I created a bit of texture on the background with some gelatos and a stencil + modeling paste.

I created a little layout share video to tell you a few more details about the layouts, which you can watch below. I've linked to the Ali Edwards products throughout, and all other products at the end of this post. Thanks for stopping by!
