Hi guys! I am diverting from my usual Project Life layout today because I was inspired by the Believe Story kit this month that is part of Ali Edwards' subscription program. I wanted to create a layout for each of our four children so I could tell them I believe in them. Here is a look at my process for one of these layouts:
So my process here actually began in Photoshop with three photos. I wrote out my journaling, which is a love letter to our daughter Emberlynn, and then I added several filler cards and the word art to the layout.
Both pages were printed out, trimmed, and adhered to patterned paper from Maggie Holmes' Shine collection. I was drawn to the coral/pinkish color that was in the kit, so that is the highlighted color of the layout.
The photos I chose are from the day she graduated from fifth grade. This was an important accomplishment for her! Sometimes we wonder why we have to have graduation ceremonies for fifth graders, but let me tell you it is children like Emberlynn who need to feel this sense of accomplishment so she will know what that feels like! We are so proud of her and her hard work.
I always like adding their initial to their layout, and this filler card became a great home for the initial and a cluster of embellishments.
I chose to use this quote card and also this filler card with a stamped heart layered on top. So very uncomplicated, guys!
Across the bottom is another embellishment cluster, which is grounded by this washi tape that came from Paper Source. I also used one of the journaling strips not as journaling but simply as another embellishment to draw your eye to this place on the layout.
That is all for today! I will show you the other three layouts next Tuesday, and then we will get back to my normal Project Life series. These four layouts will probably conclude my album for the first half of 2016 so it is also time for a flip-thru video! So awesome. I'll see you soon!
