Featuring Kelly Purkey │ October Release

Hello everyone, I cannot believe we are days away from Halloween! Its so busy right now but I wanted to share that Kelly's October release went live today and I managed to get two layouts done yesterday.

This first layout is something I have had on my mind for years. I was just waiting for the right moment and the right kit to make it happen. Luckily for me when I saw Kelly's Dream Come True mini kit this month I knew it could finally happen.

Years and years ago I found this old Disneyland ticket book in a parking lot and it brought back so many memories of our early trips to the park when it was all about the E Tickets. I dug thru my old family photos for just the right picture to pair with the tickets and with the stamps and cards from this kit. This image of my and my brother on our very first trip to the park was a clear winner.

I love the 6x4 postcard journaling cards that come in the kit and it was the perfect focal point for the layout. 

I was also super partial to the outline ears stamp, super, super cute. The rest of the layout was made by just layering my favorite cards to help frame the 6x4 postcard. Layering journaling cards is one of my favorite ways to start a layout. Once I have the layers in the look I like the rest always seems to fall into place.

The second layout that I made came together really quickly. I used one of the 6x4 cards from the Dream Come True kit and paired it with stamps from the Made with Love stamp set. Its and 8 1/2 x 11 layout, which is something I don't typically do but because it was going to be just one photo and one journaling card I thought the smaller size was a better choice.

I love how versatile this stamp set is. I wanted to share an image of the full stamp set because I think its so cool. I think it would be so cool to document a favorite family recipe by typing it up and adding the stamps and pairing it with a picture.  I know in my family we have some very specific family favorites that this would be perfect for.

The ink colors I used are all Hero Arts Shadow inks and I used Pumpkin Pie and Cup of Joe.

I think the spatula and whisk stamps are my favorite in this set.

There was also a really cute alpha stamp set in this release called Henry. Its super whimsical and would pair wonderfully with the Dream Comes True set.

I hope you found lots of new favorites in this release, I know that I did.

See you soon,
