Featuring Kelly Purkey Shop │ July Travelers Notebook Kit

I wanted to pop in with a quick post to let you know that the Kelly Purkey July shop update went live today. Along with the latest kits and stamps Kelly is having a Summer Stamp Sale, all stamps are 20% off with the code SUMMER20. The sale is valid thru 11:59pm EST on 7/29.

I have one project to share with you now and another will be coming shortly. The shop update contained the two kits and three additional stamp sets.

The first project I made was a spread in my Summers Travelers Notebook. This spread featured the I Ate This Travelers Notebook Kit as well as the Bowery uppercase alpha stamp set. I love this stamp set, and I love that there is also a companion lower case set called Broome which also includes numbers.

For this spread I knew I wanted to add more photos than the space would allow so I used one of the paper sheets to create a pocket that would hold all of the photos. It was a very simple pocket to make, I just trimmed an angle shape and then turned back about 1/2" of the edges on the right side and along the bottom. This is how I adhered the pocket down to my page. I added in one of the paper strips to the edge to dress it up and add in a pop of green. Inside the pocket I added in four additional photos and one of the journaling cards from the main kit with some text.

On the left side I added in my title using the Bowery alpha set. Having the grid lines on my notebook pages definitely helps keep things lined up nice and straight and stamping each letter individually helps a lot too. I can never get multiple letters lined up all at once and I find I spend way to much time trying to get it right. It may seem tedious but its actually quicker to stamp letters one at a time.

I dressed up the rest of the page with stamps from the stamp set, that fork being my favorite and added in a green puffy star to balance the green of the paper strip.

I have another project in process right now and its using the main kit, Summer Time Eats kit, I love that its all about our favorite summer time foods. I'll be back to share that post later this week when its all done but here are some cards and photos that I started to make for it.

There is also another super cool stamp set called See the World to help document your travels. I have a pretty big trip coming in a few months so I know this one will get used for that.

The last thing I wanted to share is that Kelly announced her new Creative Team today. The team has grown which is awesome and she has added some amazingly talented ladies to the group. Kelly will also be launching a blog for the shop and that should be starting very soon. I'll be sure to share when that goes live so you can follow. I have linked to everyone's Instagram accounts below if you want to follow along.

Have a wonderful weekend,
