Featuring Kelly Purkey Shop │2018 Holiday Kits

Christmas has come early and the 2018 Holiday Kits are live over at Kelly Purkey Shop and they will go fast. I cannot wait to use these kits and stamps in my December Daily® this year but in the mean time I was able to play with some of the stamp sets that are part of the holiday release.

I wanted to use the 6x8 Highline number stamp set so badly so I stamped them to create my own sheet of wrapping paper. I love how this turned out and I know that I will use these big bold numbers a lot in my December album.

I also used stamps from the Merry Everything kit, the Colorful Countdown to Christmas kit, the Good Cheer kit, and the Holiday Monograms stamp set to create my other sheet of paper and the gift tags.

My favorite kit that I cannot wait to incorporate into my December album is the Oh What Fun Travelers Notebook kit. The stamp set in this kit is so cute, LifeLovePaper really killed it with the design of this kit.

I hope you got everything you wanted in the shop update! It makes me so excited for the holidays!!

Featuring Kelly Purkey Shop │ September shop update

Hello everyone, can you believe its FALL! I'm pretty much in denial even though we have already put up our Halloween decorations. Its pretty much a downward spiral into the holidays and I'm ready for it but I still feel like I need to stop, lean on a wall and catch my breath. The good thing is that the Kelly Purkey Shop update is so awesome this month and filled with so many fall things. I have another project planned that I didn't get to in time for the release but I'll share the stamp set below so you can see how awesome it is.

First up is the main kit this month, it's called Face Time and I just loved it. It was perfect for documenting a lunch date I had last year with some local scrapbooking friends. I'm sure some of them will be familiar to you, two of them are also on Kelly's creative team.

Kelly has been really killing it lately with the sticker sheets she is including in her kits and this five person friend sticker could not have been more perfect.

The next project I made was a travelers notebook spread about the fall fashions I have been pinning and gathering for the upcoming season. I can't wait for it to be cool enough to wear some of  my new things so until then I'll just look at pretty pictures and dream of cooler temps. This spread uses a mix of several stamp sets, I used the new Oxford alpha stamp set, the All the Layers stamp set, stamps from the New Season stamp set and two cards from the main Face Time kit.

I really wanted to use the bold lower case Oxford alpha to stamp out a list of some of the key elements I plan to have in my fall wardrobe and love how the boldness plays off of the grid of Pinterest images on the left.

I absolutely adore the people stamp sets that LifeLovePaper designs, its like playing with paper dolls and you can create so many fun combinations. I really wanted to use one on this spread so I ended up making it like a little die cut and left room on my journaling card so I could adhere it to the edge. That search box card from the Face Time kit was the perfect card to use and the sentiment on the All the Layers stamp set fit perfectly.

The next project I want to make is using the stamp set in the Halloween Mini kit. I spent a considerable chunk of money in Trader Joe's the other day buying all of the pumpkin things so I can't wait to document that using this kit. Its not just for Halloween which I love. There plenty of Pumpkin Love in this kit.

I hope you enjoyed the release and just to give you a heads up, Kelly's Holiday kits go on sale on October 8th and I have seen them and they are AWESOME! I'll be back to share more about that soon.

Featuring Kelly Purkey Shop │ August Shop Update

Hello everyone, today is the shop update over at Kelly Purkey shop so I wanted to share what I made with this months kits and stamp sets. I loved the kits this month and made a small mini book using this months special mini kit.

Note: This post contains affiliate links, which means I receive a small commission if you make a purchase using the links below. There is no additional cost to you if you use these links.

The first project I made was a Travelers Notebook spread using the At The Vineyard stamp set and the Roosevelt alpha stamp set. I used papers from the Take Care travelers notebook kit as well.

The second project I made took a little more time but I was able to finish the bulk of this mini album in a day using the stamps and papers from the Back To School mini kit designed by LifeLovePaper. I love making small mini books for back to school pictures and this one turned out super cute. I just love the illustrations Tina creates and they add so much to the finished album and the projects end up requiring so much less embellishments because of them. They are just too cute.

I loved stamping the rainbow of pencils directly on to vellum. I love how it looks from the front and from the back. I added in a few stamps from the Take Care Travelers Notebook kit and from the Yes main kit as accents throughout the project. For this label I cut apart the Yes, Yes & Yes stamp so it would fit in a horizontal space instead of a vertical space.

I also added in an accent on this page using the Today Is stamp set. I love the circles and especially love that they fit on the 6x8 label sticker sheet circles.

I hope you enjoyed the shop update and found lots of fun stuff to add to your craft collection!

See you soon,
