Tell Me A Story with Amy Jo Vanden Brink

One of our new, favorite add-ons in the shop is our Story Acrylic, which can be used to create a beautiful title, as added embellishment on your page, and so much more! Let’s take a look at how design team member Amy Jo Vanden Brink used it on a new layout that she’s sharing with us today!

Hello everyone! It’s Amy Jo, and I’m so excited to share a project that features the versatile Story Acrylic add-on. This font is so charming, and the white acrylic will go with any style or color scheme, so let me show you how I used mine!

Supplies | May 2020 Kit, Icon Chipboard Stickers, White Puffy Alphabet Stickers, Story Acrylic, Acrylic Stars, Flourish 6 x 8.5 Paper Stack, Large Jane Alphabet Stamp — Outline, Dated Stamp

Since the stay-at-home recommendations in mid-March, we started reading a chapter of Harry Potter as a family every night and it has quickly turned into one of our favourite family activities. I typed my journaling and printed it in light grey, then used the Large Jane Alphabet Stamp to stamp on top of it. Then I adhered my acrylic piece underneath to complete the title. 

We are reading from the Illustrated version, so I used Google Images to print out the covers of the four books we have, then labeled them with the White Puffy Alphabet Stickers.


I wanted to add a little bit more magic to the spread, so I used the Acrylic Stars scattered across the page, like sparks from Harry’s wand.

To anchor the bottom of the page, I used small strips of the green and purple patterns from the Flourish 6 x 8.5 Paper Stack, and the Good Night die cut from the May 2020 Kit. Dates are always hard for me to remember later, so I added the Dated Stamp so that we would remember when this was.


Thanks for checking out my project! This is just one way to use this really great, versatile piece, I’d love to see how you use your Story Acrylic!
