The One with the Ali Edwards ARCOS DE LA FRONTERA Layout

Thursday, May 21, 2015

It's been awhile since I shared an Ali Edwards Digital Creative Team layout! I was invited to be a guest designer for her CLICK Kit so I couldn't publicly share those and then we've had some breaks because of traveling, etc. But anyway, long story short, here's my latest AE layout using the LITTLE THINGS kit:

Description: I played with the LITTLE THINGS kit by Ali Edwards and fell in love with the colors and patterns found on the cards:
Journaling says: Walking up the hill to the top of the city was my favorite part of the day. The views were breathtaking all around!

How to: Print the journaling/Project Life cards and some of the other elements from the LITTLE THINGS kit onto white cardstock. Use a triangle punch to make a few dozen patterned paper triangles (want dozens more ideas for creative ways to use patterned paper? Check out my PATTERNED PAPER PLAY class!). On a pink patterned paper layout base, start spiraling the triangles starting in the center and working out. Use a sewing machine to sew over the triangles. Print a round sentiment, punch a photo into a circle, and adhere the pieces inside the spiral. Set a trio of buttons below the photo and print/cut out the blue alphas to make the title above the photo. Journal on the bottom right corner with a black pen and stamp the date in black ink below.

Supplies: Digital elements: LITTLE THINGS kit by Ali Edwards; Cardstockadhesivepen, roller date stamp, ink: American Crafts; Patterned paper: Pink Paislee; Buttons: Studio Calico; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark

Thanks as always for stopping by - means the world to me!


  1. Gorgeous! LOVING all the triangles!!!!

  2. Love the mix of the spiral with the triangles, Paige!

  3. Hi Paige, this is lovely! Just wondering what size triangle punch did you use for this? Was it the green one by Dear Lizzy? Thanks :) Cant wait to give it a try!

  4. Amelia - yes it's the green one by Dear Lizzy - the smaller one :) Can't wait to see what you make!

  5. Hi Paige,Just another question on this layout which I have been copying. Did you enlarge the circle in the middle or print the 3x4 card and just punch out the "life is good" circle? Thanks! Amelia (I'm new to digital so I have no idea how to do anything!)

  6. @Amelia - I enlarged the circle to about 3.5" then printed and cut it out :)
