Featuring Kelly Purkey Shop │ September Release

The days are flying by and the temps are finally starting to cool off a bit. Cool off meaning we aren't getting above 93° oof. I did have a chance recently to travel up to Portland, OR with my mom and I've already started a mini album for the trip as you will see below. The temps were very fall like up there and we even got caught in a downpour. It definitely made me crave some cooler temps and all the fall things.

In other non weather related news, the shop update at Kelly Purkey Shop went live today. And if you are craving more time at home with your coffee and slippers and maybe even a blanket or two the main kit, Home Sweet Home is going to be perfect for you. I wanted to capture what life is looking like right now for us in our outside living space so I decided to capture it in my Travelers Notebook. I combined the main kit stamp set along with the Admit One Travelers Notebook kit for this spread.

The papers in the Admit One kit are so pretty. I'm really loving this mustard yellow color right now and seeing it in a kit made me super happy. I used the sheet of paper as my base and balanced the stamping and the photo on each side. I love the sentiments of the stamps in this kit. I love how they aren't just for your home but homes away from home too.

I wanted to add in a bold title for the spread and used the new Lexington Alpha stamp set for this. I love a good outline font and I love that there is now a really great serif option too.

My second project is a mini album for the trip to Portland that I took with my Mom that I mentioned above. I always love to make mini albums for trips and this one came together super fast which is always a plus.

I really loved the hexagon shapes in the Home Sweet Home stamp set and knew that I wanted to make a pattern with them. Initially I had thought I was going to use the solid shape but when I was playing around trying to decide what to do I ended up loving the outline on its own. I just cut out the center sentiment which I can always add back in if I wanted to. I love the way the shapes interlock. Its such a cool stamp and can be as simple or as intricate as you want it to be. I love the outline stamps paired with the Lexington alpha stamp set. A nice clean simple cover, just the way I like it.

I made sure to incorporate the Admit One stamp set into my album by making up mock plane tickets to clip inside the album. I love that there is an additional Admit One stamp set that coordinates so that you have even more options for customization. These basic alphas and numbers will get used for a lot of other things besides tag making.

I used the Lexington Alpha stamp set again here to label my pages of the mini and added in quite a few of the sentiments from the Home Sweet Home stamp set on the pages that talk about the hotel.

I'll have an in depth look at the whole mini album coming soon so stayed on the look out for that. I'm almost done editing all the pictures.

The only other stamp set that I haven't played with yet for this release is the Wild stamp set. This stamp set is so cool, and I cannot wait for our next outdoor adventure so I can use it.

And don'e miss out on the Alpha Stickers that have been added to the shop. The little white mini alphas are my fave! I used them a bunch in my mini, must buy more!

I hope you had fun with this release. It sure was a great one.

See you soon,
