In October, I went on a cruise and took the opportunity to show myself a little self-love and self-care. I wanted to find inner peace. And I did. With my best friend on Amiga Island off the coast of Haiti. For Christmas, she gave me a necklace with the coordinates for Amiga Island etched on it and as soon as I saw the Numbers kit, I knew what I was going to do for my layout.
I used both the digital and physical kits to create an 8.5" x 11" layout + a 6" x 11" insert for my journaling, which is lengthy.
I used the digital numbers to create my coordinates and cut them out on my Silhouette. It's really hard to see in the photo, but I also printed the numbers in light blue directly on the photo and offset the white cardstock numbers on top.
I also wrote the words "amiga island" with a black marker, traced them in Silhouette Studio and cut them out of white cardstock too. Below the photo I added a number journal card (with altered color) from the digital kit and some circles and sequins from this Story Kit and past ones.
I printed my journaling and the blue circle on a 6" x 11" piece of Epson Matte Premium Presentation Paper and added more circles from the Story Kits.
I love that this layout really focuses on the story because it was an amazing experience that I don't want to leave undocumented. You can watch the whole thing come together, including the Photoshop and Silhouette stuff, in the process video.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I so appreciate it. You can find out more about Ali's Story Kits™ here. Most of the products used are from those kits, but I've linked to other available products below.
