It ended up being an 8 1/2 x 11 full photo layout, a Becky Higgins design J pocket page (front and back) and a 7ishx9ish insert. And I can absolutely see myself adding to this in the future.
I love that the photo of the books shows the worn edges of the well-loved book spines. So much.
To document this story, I used a combination of the digital and physical Read Story Kit. I believe the physical kit is on a wait list, but you can get the digital kit and it is super awesome. I used digital stamps directly on some photos before I printed. The "Always" stamp was begging to go on this layout. I hand-lettered "Wands at the Ready", digitized it, and added it to my photo as well.
I also created some journal cards using the digital Silkscreen Journal Lines and I will definitely be doing that again. It turned out pretty cool, I think.
I made a process video for this project and it includes my Photoshop process for adding the digital elements to my photos as well as creating the journal cards. You can watch it below or over on my YouTube channel.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, Ali's Story Kits have changed the way I tell stories. And I couldn't be more grateful.
Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to check out the Creative Team Gallery (probably later this month) to see what the other ladies on the CT made with this kit.
