Studio AE From Technique Tuesday Blog Hop | September

studio ae sept blog hop

Welcome to the Studio AE/Technique Tuesday September Blog Hop!

This month's stamp set is "Family Is" - a great collection of family-focused words:

This month I decided to create a page celebrating the kids and my parents - their relationships are one of my favorite parts of life.

Here are a few close-ups:

I went with a selection of photos from this past year. I cropped all the photos to 2.5 x 3.5 (or so) in Photoshop, printed them here at home and left a white border around each image.

For my title I used a combination of these great cork letter stickers from Close To My Heart and the "generations" stamp.

Although I think the family words on this months set are great, I especially love the "love you" piece. I can see myself using that one over and over. I stamped it a few times with different ink colors in the top right of the page.

Along the outside top right edge I used the Smash Date Stamp ( Two Peas | Scrapbook.com ) to add "I heart this" and the date.

Word stickers. Still love them. Pulled out some old Making Memories wordfetti and combined them with chipboard words from GCD Studios Soul Food Collection.

Along the bottom of the pattern paper I stamped "love you Mother," "love you Father," "love you son," and "love you daughter" as a subtitle.

Underneath that stamping I did a bit of handwritten journaling.

    This layout is simply smashing, Ali. Love every little thing about it. And love how you used the stamps on it.

    Ali, I enjoy all of your posts. But I must say I'm always the most inspired by the traditional scrapbooking ones. This is just beautiful! :)
