Featuring Kelly Purkey Shop │ August 2017 release

OMG, I cannot believe summer is almost over! What the heck! Its still crazy hot around here, we have several 100°+ days ahead of us so its hard to think about anything but heat but I did manage to get in quite a few scrapping days over the past few weeks which was awesome.

Thankfully the latest shop update over at Kelly Purkey Shop is live and its full of great products that you can use right now to help document your days.

The first project was made using the main Life Lessons kit. While this spread centers around Back to School, rest assured that if you don't have school age kiddos at home you will still find lots of good things in this kit. This spread features stamps from the kit as well as stamps from the Captured stamp set. I know this one will go quickly so make sure you grab it fast.

I pulled out all of the school appropriate cards that matched my topic and really loved that pop of red the August card gave to the spread.

I played around with an ombre ink pads and love how it looks especially on the more solid stamps as you can see below. The selfie stamp is from the Captured stamp set.

Here is a look at that Captured stamp set, like I said, it won't be around long.

My second project was a spread in my Summer Travelers Notebook and it featured the stamps and papers from the Summer Vacation Travelers Notebook kit. The stamp set for this kit really covered all aspects of summer fun from reading, road trips, water time, lazy days, eating you get the idea.

I used two of the papers as my base and just adhered them down on top of the notebook pages. I recolored one of the main kit journaling cards because I wanted to match the red in the papers. This is fairly easy to do within programs like Photoshop or Photoshop Elements which is what I use.

I used a stamp I had that was the right size to outline some of the summer nights phrases on the left side and I love how that turned out. It brings in some of the black and adds a bit more interest to the background.

I wanted to add more than one photo to the spread so I just layered one on top of the other and used the round sticker as my hinge. I cut a little tab so that it was more obvious there was something underneath and it helped draw interest as well.

One last stamp set I wanted to highlight for you is the Perry Alpha stamp. Its a super fun and unique set as you can see below. 

I hope you enjoyed the shop release, happy scrapping!

Featuring Kelly Purkey Shop │ Summer Eats

Happy Friday! I hope you have something special planned this weekend. Its going to be another hot one for us here in California and I'm already dreaming about summer drinks and ice cream. I made this pocket page using the latest kit from Kelly Purkey shop called Summertime Eats and its making me all kinds of hungry as I type this. Tacos anyone?

I love the bright colors of this kit, I also really loved the taco and ice cream patterned cards. I ended up making little 2.5" square text block to lay on top of the taco card so I could still see the card but also still add in some journaling. I repeated the same process on the drink card, but the lime slice paper that I used is from the I Ate This travelers notebook kit.

I used a few ombre ink pads because I really wanted a washed look with the inks. Plus it made my drink stamp that much more believable. Cheers!

I know this kit is going fast and I'm sure it will sell out soon. I just wish I had room on my page for the rainbow hued word stickers, super cute!!

See you soon,
