Two Projects : Family Memory Tray Kit for Cocoa Daisy & Rejoice Photobook

AE_FamilyMemoryTray_CloseUp_Web

I've been busy this week. Busy making stuff.

First up is a new project kit available through Cocoa Daisy.

As many of you have seen in the past, one of my favorite projects is the printer's tray I filled with photos and little found bits & pieces a few years back. I was excited to see 7gypsies come out with a line of trays recently - much easier to put together a project when everyone has access to the same tray.

This new project kit includes everything I used in the sample above, full color instructions (including a "map" I created with the dimensions for each of the spaces on the tray), a one-page PDF of printable elements, and additional supplies that coordinate with the kit for those of you who want to add more.

Kit is now available at Cocoa Daisy.

The second project I worked on earlier this week was a layered template photobook package called Rejoice. This concept has been in my mind and on my heart for awhile and I was really excited to finally get it all together.

Here's a look at my completed book at Shutterfly:

The main thing I wanted with this photobook was for it to be a celebration: a simple celebration of full-page photos that document the love between two kids paired with some of my favorite passages from the bible (many of which include the word "rejoice").

I went for a super-simple design, including on the cover where I used one word on top of a
cream textured cardstock. You could easily use a photo (or collage of
photos) or another pattern. That's the beauty of layered templates. I'm actually really looking forward to seeing what other people do with this design as a foundation for their own projects.

The layered template package includes 10, 12x12 pages of my favorite bible passages (+ an opening page) and 10 different grid templates (my favorite simple-grid designs). The package also includes Shutterfly ready pages, cover, back and spine.

Looking forward to the arrival of my photobook this week.

Around here I'm looking forward to a weekend with absolutely nothing planned except hanging out here at home. Hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend whatever your plans. A fun giveaway post will be up tomorrow morning.

    Oh Ali those fotos are adorable. I love the way Simon looks at Anna in all of the pictures. Indeed Rejoice because you have a huge gift and tell Simon he is a wonderful big brother, I can see it in his eyes. Heidi.

    How cool is that tray. Funny thing, I just posted this morning about the printer's tray that I made, inspired by you, a couple of years ago and then was checking out "my blogs" and here was this post!
    Thanks so much Ali for the inspiration. Regards, Sue

    Ali, there are no sweeter pictures than an older sibling loving on his new baby brother. We adopted our daughter when she was 1 1/2 and I love when I capture the love between my son (7) and her (now 2 1/2!) It just makes your heart grow two times bigger. I have a big favor to ask. I came across a blog of a grandma who single daughter's 4 yr old son is going through brain cancer AGAIN. He has it in his brain and spine. He has a 20% to live. I have the info on my blog at http://lalasworldblog.blogspot.com. He's really into superheros and loves cards. Can you possible ask for cards for him? I'm giving away a very small RAK for other's RAK of sending a card. Can you please ask for cards for him. I don't want or need anyone to see my blog. But I'd love to bring a smile to his sweet face. The picture I have up is not what he looks like now. I am a momma and my heart just hurts so must for his. Can you maybe post about him. You can see his recent pictures at http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/lennonhunt/guestbook. I'm sure you get these requests all the time, so I won't think anything of it if you don't respond. But from one mom to another, my heart hurts for this single mom who has been fighting since Lennon has been two. He's now 4.

    That Rejoice book is brilliant! I love it. What a celebration of the simple moments that add up to love in our families and in such a message of gratitude. Great work Ali. I am glad you put what was in heart to paper.

    Love both of these ideas and am so glad that Cocoa Daisy came out with the tray. Ever since I saw your post about them I've been looking for one and have yet to find one. Thanks so much for sharing your creativity with us.

    Absolutely love the layered templates. Actually, I love both projects and will be making them both for a friend who is getting married this summer. I have asked the groom to send me digital pictures of them without telling the bride - I think she will love them!

    Love the photo tray! And can't wait to check out your digital kit - I attended my goddaughter's (and first niece's) baptism last weekend and have been planning a mini-book of some sort to honor her day. I'm including favorite Bible verses from her all of grandparents & hope to send off soon to her lovely parents. Thanks, as always, for the inspiration. :)
