The One with the Ali Edwards LIFE IS AN ADVENTURE Layout

Here is my newest Ali Edwards Digital Creative Team layout!

Description: We go on a lot of adventures - trying to take advantage of our close proximity to so many European destinations as we possibly can during our 3 or 4 years here in Germany! So when I saw the "seek adventure" title in the Ali Edwards Follow Your Heart digital brushes I knew that was the set I wanted to work with.

Journaling says: No journaling, but the destinations are Krakow (Poland), Schloss Fantasie (Germany), and Carlsbad (or Karlovy Vary) Czech Republic.

How to: Trim 3/4" x 2" strips from the Nine & Co papers by Teresa Collins designs then lightly adhere them in a chevron pattern across the bottom 3/4 of a white cardstock background. Machine stitch over the chevrons using white thread. Drop dark gray spray mist over the layout. Punch three photos into 2" circles then adhere them along with clusters of embellishments (such as wood veneer banners, cork pieces, chipboard buttons, epoxy brads, die cut arrows, and wood veneer dots) over the chevrons. Place mini alphabet stickers around the curve of the photos telling the destination. Turn the "seek adventure" from the Follow Your Heart digital brushes into cut a file then die cut it from dark gray cardstock using a Silhouette CAMEO. Staple the "adventure" die cut title across the top edge of the chevrons and add a chipboard arrow on either side. Place a "Life" chipboard word above the title and write "is an" with a black pen.
