STAMPtember® with Ali Edwards!


We are so excited to welcome Ali Edwards to the blog today to share a layout she created about her sweet daughter Anna. Ali has an amazing way of preserving her memories through photos and words and this layout takes us through her creative process. Enjoy!


A step by step of Ali’s creative process:

1. Print a photo to 12 inches x 12 inches. I selected one that had “white space” along the bottom that could create a home for my large letter stamps.
2. Use Staz On ink to stamp out your sentiments.
3. Add white letter stickers if you have a bit of blank space (I did after stamping “love the way you…”).
4. Hand-drawn a few lines and words.
5. Add a strip of washi tape along the bottom edge.

6. Add embellishments. I added a circle tag with writing around the outside, a bight yellow arrow sticker, and I cut a circle sticker in half to adhere along the bottom of the page.



Thank you for reading today and a huge thank you to Ali for sharing her layout with us!

  1. I would love to enter the giveaway for Tim Holtz’s class but there is no where to leave a comment on that post. I have tried for 2 days. I cannot find a way to email anyone to ask them how to do so anywhere on the blog or on the Simon Says Stamp website.

  2. Terrific layout! It’s so rare to see one with a large single photo as the focal point, especially done so well! Great job!

  3. Awesome layout. Love the large lettering at the bottom with the different color inks. So cute and special :)

  4. I have never came up with using one big photo like this. Great layout! really love it! Thanks for sharing.

  5. I don’t scrapbook, but this is what I’d use as a good layout if I did. I love the large picture and the large letters on the message/title. The added lines and doodles add another dimension, too. Well done!

  6. Adorable layout! I love the idea of leaving some white space on the bottom of the photo for stamping.
