One Little Word 2017 Overview

For the last 3 years I have been picking a word each year to focus on. The last two years I have been taking the workshop from Ali Edwards to go along with this project.

At the beginning of the year I shared with you my One Little Word album from last year. I thought that I would share with you how my album is turning out this year.

{One Little Word 2017 Overview}


My word for this year is “Believe.” This album has turned out NOTHING like I had pictured in my head. With this project I try very hard to just “go with it.”

Even though it has not turned out the way I had pictured it, I am very much enjoying the direction it is going. I am using some retired Stampin’ Up product, which I had been using for a Wedding Album I was working on.

I’m also using the Everyday Core Kit from Becky Higgins.

It seems that Butterflies have become almost a symbol for me this year. Last year I used lots of hearts.

There are also several products from Ali Edwards that I am using. It just happened to work out that the colors worked well with what I had already picked out to use this year.

For the most part I simply follow the layout, and design that Ali Edwards shares within her classroom content each month. I always love the way she puts her album together, and it makes it easy to follow her process. I’m very interested in doing the work to make my word more visible in my life. I’m less interested in making this album perfect.

There are a few things left for February that I need to fill out. I tend to wait until the month is over to do reflection cards. I want to be able to really reflect on what happened in the past month with whatever prompt we were given.

It was so exciting this month when Ali did collage features directly in her album. I am not good at vision boards, or collages. I simply don’t really know what to do when putting them together. This option was perfect for me.

{Lets Talk Supplies}

I hope you enjoyed seeing how my album is coming along. I’ve used several Stampin’ Up products to put this album together because that is what I have on hand. I tend to try, and keep this process simple.

You can pick up many of the supplies I used in my online store HERE, or by clicking on the photos below. For every $50.00 you spend you get a FREE Sale-A-Bration item.

Use this months Host Code:S3929SPU. When your order is at least $50.00 you will get all 3 of my FREE Card kits, and  a set of Rhinestones.

{One Little Word with Ali Edwards}

I adore everything about Ali Edwards. I love her approach to memory keeping, and I have learned so much from her online classes. Several of the items I am using are from her shop. I’ve listed those items below.

The workshop is no longer available to sign up for, but you can pick up any of the supplies listed below.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my One Little Word Album.  This is a project that I’m not planning on sharing each month here on my website. I have been sharing more of it on a regular basis in my Documenting Everyday Membership Group.

I will share another overview of this album in a few months. I’m always excited to share with you what I’m working on.
