Today I want to share some of the AE Creative Team projects I was working on this month. I created two layouts using some of the new digital releases for April. When I first saw this awesome kit I ,of course, thought I would use to create some kind of Easter layout. However when Easter rolled around I didn’t love the photos I took and decided I just wanted to add them in my regular PL album. I did however have a story I wanted to tell about a gathering we had with some friends of mine from childhood and I loved how I was still able to use elements from this kit to create the page.
This photo was taken with my cell phone and was pretty grainy so I just changed it to black and white and kept the layout neutral with one pop of colour. So happy to have this story documented.
After participating in Week in the Life™ all last week, I captured a few photos I really loved (well more than a few – a ton) and decided to take few and tell a longer story (as well as the story I will tell with it in my album). I used word art from the Week in the Life™ Layered Templates Vol 4 to create the title for this layout.
I was SO happy when I saw this photo of my daughter and me, that my husband took last weekend and knew immediately it would tell a great story. Love how it turned out.
Next up I created two layouts this month using the Lens Digital Kit from Ali Edwards. I love how this theme can really work for so many kinds of stories. However, as soon as I took this photo of my daughter in her favourite spot I knew it was a story begging to be told.
I used my silhouette to cut the title out.
My second layout used another photo taken during Week in the Life™ by my friend.
I’m feeling super thankful this month for the chance and the push to tell some stories that I know I will treasure and that I also know, I may not have taken the time to record if I wasn’t slowing down and paying attention and a part of the 2017 AE Creative team.
