AE Digital Projects: Up Story Kit™

As many of you know, this has been a season of change in my life. And sometimes change is hard. And I've been struggling a little bit, if I dare to admit that. But the other day, I took a walk and listened to the Jason Mraz "Yes!" album and felt like I was listening to the soundtrack of my life. Particularly a song called "3 Things". So when I looked at the products for the Up Story Kit and saw the phrase "Things are looking up" (which is repeated throughout that song), I knew just the story to tell. I love that the Story Kits spark ideas like that.

Since I've been scrapbooking for a while, I really take notice of the moments I might want to document later and try to snap a pic. So glad I did that on this day. I had two photos - one is a selfie and the other is a photo of my feet where I intentionally left a lot of white space (the sidewalk) for potential storytelling opportunities. I used a digital stamp on the photo before I printed it and then wrote out the words to the song all around it. I decided to make it a horizontal 8.5x11 layout - something I've been loving lately - with a 3x8 insert for my selfie and journaling.

I added in a few physical embellishments from the Up Story Kit as well as some stickers and die cuts from the Tough and Firsts Story Kits. Loving the simplicity of photos and journaling on important stories like these.

You can see how the layout came together in the process video below or over on my YouTube channel. I've linked to all available products that are not from Ali at the end of this post.

Thanks for stopping by!
