AE Digital Projects | February 2017 Digital Kit

If you haven't seen already, Ali Edwards is releasing a fabulous new digital only kit each month this year. February's kit has kind of a lovey theme and I decided to write a little love letter to myself a la Brandi Kincaid. I really think that we all need to recognize the value in ourselves and I thought Valentine's Day would be a good day to start.

I used a practically life-size selfie (8x12), which made me literally laugh out loud after I pulled it from my printer. But I went with it, because hey, I love me, right? Haha.

I started each paragraph of the letter with a different self-affirming phrase - You are amazing. You are beautiful. You are strong. You are enough. You are loved. I think that's a great way to do journaling on a page about yourself. It gives you somewhere to start.

I used the print-and-cut feature of my Silhouette Cameo + elements from Ali's digital kit to create my title. I also added some hand-lettering on vellum and cut it out. Super easy way to make your handwriting look like a printed die cut!

I walk you through my whole hybrid process in the video below. I hope that you'll write yourself a love letter. We all need a little bit of that.

Thanks so much for stopping by! You can check out all of Ali's products in her shop here.


  1. I love this Jen and not even knowing you personally I believe you are a beautiful soul and you can't be one and not be able to share what you have within you - go you! Lovely layout, beautifully expressed. :-)

  2. Seriously AWESOME page! I love everything about this! I love the idea of writing a love letter to ourselves ... I do this, too. ;) (Why are we so hard on ourselves sometimes?!) -- Besides the sentiment of this page, your design is so, so beautiful! So Jen-Beautiful! I love the soft colors with the florals and WOW! Your eyes are so pretty! Honestly!!! ... you need to be in a mascara commercial! ;)
