Featuring Kelly Purkey │ November Release

Hello everyone, its been a super crazy month and I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Kelly Purkey's latest release is live today! She has moved her shop to a new home you can find it right here. This is her first release in the new shop and I think you are going to love the shopping experience there. Plus because its Cyber Monday everything is on sale!

I've made two things so far with the new release and I want to share them with you. This first layout is something I always love to do at the end of each year and while going thru my photo stream looking for the best of the best photo wise I decided to focus on my favorite selfies.

I combined two new items for this layout, the Best of 2015 mini kit and the Greenpoint Alpha. I'm a huge fan of grid layouts and for this one I wasn't quite sure what size to make the photos so I just went with 1.25" square. I printed out about 60 photos and ended up using 40 of them. I also added in a few squares cut from the mini kit cards and added in as many stamps as I could. The title was made using the Greenpoint alpha and I just opted to leave it black. I love the graphic quality of this font and its so simple it will be a favorite for sure.

I raised up the squares I cut from the cards so it added a bit of dimension and just like that it was done. I hope you try making a layout like this. Its so much fun to look back at all the crazy selfies that you take and its super fun to get them all laid out on a layout.

My second project also featured a card and stamps from the Best of 2015 set and the Greenpoint Alpha

This was a super simple and relatively quick layout to put together. The most time consuming part was cropping and editing the photos so they would fit inside the stamped boxes on the card. I love how this looks and it gave me a chance to add in a few more photos to this layout.

Adding in more of the Greenpoint Alpha for the title work and a few pattern paper accents and it was done. This layout will slip right into my Project Life® album and it can even be paired with a pocket page for the last week of the season. I still haven't completed that yet but I love that this is already done for me.

There was one last stamp set this month, the Hot Mess set that I haven't had a chance to use yet but its so funny and so sassy that I cannot wait to use it with just the right photos.

Kelly has also added in some fun new washi tapes and travelers notebooks to the shop so make sure you check those out too. This one is my favorite.

I hope you enjoy these new releases and don't forget to update your bookmarks to Kelly's new shop address at

See you soon,

  1. I love the selfie page! It's adorable! I've done a layout with some of my favorite photos of the year as my last page of my PL album for the last few years, but I might need to focus on selfies this year. What a great idea!
