It's been a while since I've completed a layout with Ali's Story Theme kits. I am definitely behind, but I continue to enjoy creating these layouts. Ali has a way of getting me to think, dig deep, and document a story that I know I will love to read in 20 years.
Here's my layout from the August 2015 Build Story Theme.
As usual, I started with a photo foundation. I wanted to tell the story of something I am currently building, one day at time. And for me, that is most definitely my film cameras and a collection of images. I have added a camera to my collection each time that I wanted to experiment and push my boundaries. I have taken images with each of these cameras that I hold near and dear to my heart. I love that I was able to document this story.
I really liked Ali's example layout of a up close image alongside a shot with a wider scene. I paired for these two images together and added a 4x6 card from the kit directly on top of the right hand photo with my journaling.
Now that I have the fuse tool for my main Project Life album, I have been addicted to adjusting page protectors as I need them. It is truly liberating to create layouts and not be limited to the pockets in page protectors, but creating my own.
For the right hand side of this layout, I used the fuse tool to create a 6 x 11 page protector from a 8.5 x 11 inch We R Memory Keepers page.
And here is how it looks in my album. I am using a We R Memory Keepers 8.5 x 11 Classic Leather Album to hold all of my story layouts.
