Sharing Your Story: Recording Life's Details with Mini Books by Ali Edwards

Back from CHA, what an amazing trip it was. I had the pleasure once again of talking with Ali Edwards and watching her do her magic on a mini album in person. How do you explain Ali??? REAL!!! She gets it!! She is one of us who just love this industry but filled with amazing talent. We watched her in the Ranger booth work with the inks and dyes on acrylic albums. Like Ali called it, she was " JUST DROPPING" dropping drops of inks on the acrylic to see what we could come up with from the inks. Not worrying about being perfect but having fun making the album to preserve memories! I admire her even more and she gave me a boost of courage to try more things and go easier on myself with them.


I had her new book "Sharing Your Story: Recording Life's Details with Mini Books" by Ali Edwards in my hands at the show. Girls this is a must have! This book is $19.99 and the information you will read and learn from in this book is PRICELESS!! You can now preorder the book which will be released the first part of August in the All Moments Remembered Store. I have ordered a large stack of them but would love to have more idea so I know if I need to order even more. So please save your place in line for this book by placing your preorder today. You will not be charged until the book ships out to you.



Heather Prins ( AMR Design Coordinator) with Ali at CHA.


Jennifer Emch (Design Team member) with Ali at CHA. Jenn has had the pleasure of working for Ali at a couple CKU's. Wild to see Ali walk up and hug someone you are with because Ali knows them. WOW!!!


This is Ali giving Tim Holtz his much needed break at the Ranger booth. Notice Timmy talking with someone in the back ground!! Ali showed us how to use the Tim Holtz™ Adirondack® Alcohol Inks. She had this very technical name for it even... Just dropping!! These inks are on their way to the store now!! SO keep a watch out and we will also be adding some great links on using them.

All Moments Remember kits will be selling out even faster when everyone starts seeing the new product lines we will be stocking our kits with. The kits have always been stocked with yummy goodness. They will be stocked even fuller at the same price to you with all the new CHA goodies starting in Oct. If you have not signed up yet for a subscription you need to run to the AMR store and be sure to get your name on the list for your kits!! Don't wait until they are sold out. We still have a couple left for Sept's kit but like always they will soon be sold out too.

I will be posting more pictures and stories from CHA daily so please be sure to come back and visit.
Have a beautiful week and hug those you love,
Stacey
