"A Year In Review: Bro Edition" | Scrapbook Layout


One of my January goals was to make a scrapbook layout using the Ali Edwards Review Story Kit, and I finished one up last night. Yay! (Sidenote: I'm finding that having goals written down and somewhere where others can see them is helping me stick to them and get stuff accomplished so much better than my old way of having random goals in my head and forgetting about them all the time.) Anyways, it turned out that I didn't actually use too much product from the actual kit for my page - but the inspiration for the layout totally came from the kit and the classroom content. And I'm a pretty minimal scrapper, so I tend not to use too much product, period.

Onto the layout!


I have to say, this is probably one of my favourite layouts I've ever made. It's one of those ones where it turned out even better than I'd imagined it in my head. I went through all my photos from 2016 (literally all of them in my Lightroom catalogue), and somehow managed to narrow down my favourites of the two boys together to these 15. All of the patterned paper I used was from the Crate Paper Cool Kid collection. (Love that collection!) I cut the "A Year In Review" title on my Silhouette using the png file from the Review Story Kit, and I also made the "reflecting and remembering" word strip using a stamp from the kit. For the "bro edition" mini-title I once again used my silhouette and the Bobbles font (also a current favourite.) I left the edges of it curled up off the page to add a bit more dimension.



I love looking at this layout and these pictures and seeing how much love these brothers have for each other. It's just the sweetest :)

Since, as I mentioned, I didn't actually end up using much of the actual digital story kit on this layout, I'm hoping to try to make another layout with it this month, using more product. I'm already considering my goal met for this one, but we'll see what I can get done!

Thanks for stopping by!
