Ali Edwards Interview on Diva Craft Lounge

Ali Edwards was recently on Diva Craft Lounge. You can listen to this radio show here. Here is a brief rundown of the highlights:

  • in talking about her new book, “A Designers Eye for Scrapbooking with Patterned Paper,” Ali says her book is broken down into sections by design shapes such as circles, squares, etc.; there are small sections on the bottom of each layout to demonstrate where the patterned paper is placed; this gives a foundation for starting the page
  • there are usable full size paper samples in the back of the book that Ali created herself using paint on canvas
  • Ali says that when she purchases patterned paper, due to the overwhelming selections and how she likes to mix and match, she usually just purchases one of each paper she likes; she also does not take her photos with her to match them to a paper
  • when mixing patterned paper she suggests one way to do it is by finding one common color between a couple of papers
  • Ali will start to concept a new book in the next few months; it will be most likely be about the “heart” of scrapbooking and the philosophy of it
  • Ali says that perfection “wrecks the process” of scrapbooking and she likes to keep things simple
