I recently started subscribing to Ali Edwards' Story Kits and Story Stamps and would like to share the layouts I made with the first kit I received.
The theme of this kit was "old and new". I really enjoy making pages that compare the past and present so I was excited to start off my subscription with this theme. My first page is about what college was like for me versus what it was/is like for my daughters (a landline vs. cell phone, communicating by letter vs. communicating by text, no transportation vs. having a car on campus). It's amazing how things have changed so much in so little time!
I was happy to use up almost a full pack of die cut leaves on this page, and I added a little gold stitching here and there too.
My next page features a grid design of photos of my family taken over the years.
I reinforced the quote by tying some thread around my journaling card.
This layout pairs a family selfie taken on Christmas with my desire to record the story of my family.
I really liked these chipboard word circles that came in the kit:
I shared my final layout before in this post but thought I'd include it again here because it was my favorite from the kit:
Thanks for stopping in - I'll be back in a couple days with the layouts I made with the next kit.
