Featuring Kelly Purkey │ April Release

So it appears the April release over at Kelly Purkey Shop was a huge success. The kit is amazing and the two additional stamp sets have already sold out. I'm happy for Kelly that they went so fast but I'm bummed that some folks missed out. If you did happen to get your hands on the kit and stamps I wanted to share with you what I made to help inspire your creations. Here is a look below of the My People kit, this stamp set and the cards are so perfect not just for family love but for that tribe of people that you have surrounding you that are just as close as family.

Seeing as I'm so behind on my pocket pages this kit was perfect for documenting my Thanksgiving photos. This day really was all about My People so the stamps and the colors of some of the cards really helped tell the story.

I just loved that 6x4 card that I cut down the middle and stamped with the Life is always better when were together stamp. I love how the edge falls of the page and I love how the white space helped balance out the solid white card on the right side. The Rumi quote card was another favorite, totally worthy of framing and hanging up for sure. I did sneak in one stamp from the Mama Bear stamp set, that set went so fast I didn't even have a chance to make something featuring it, you guys loved it so much and I agree it was a good one.

My second project came together really quickly because the Dear Weekend Stamp Set was just too perfect. 

For this Travelers Notebook layout I knew I wanted the photos to fall off the edge of the page and to balance that out, I lined all of my stamping up on the left side of the page to mimic the look of the right side. I kept all the stamping to one color and fussy cut one of the journaling cards so that I could tuck in behind one of my photos. I just love all that white space down the middle.

I cannot wait to see what Kelly has coming next, be sure to watch my Instagram for sneaks, you can find me here, make sure you follow so you don't miss any posts.

See you soon,

Elle's Studio │ Everyday Adventures Mini Album Class

One of my favorite ways to document our lives these days is by making mini albums. Sitting down to make a mini album of a trip or an event is at the top of my list of favorite ways to scrapbook so when I was asked to be a contributor for the Elle's Studio Everyday Adventures Mini Album class I said yes right away. In this image below you can see some sneaks from all of the class contributors.

All of the contributors use the same products to complete their albums; the product bundle, the stamp set that comes with the class and the coordinating Jonah alpha stamp.  I just love how different and unique each album was, everyone did such an amazing job. This album ended up being one of my favorites that I have ever made. I documented a two day getaway that my husband and I took to one of our favorite places near Yosemite Valley. You can see the cover of my album in this image below. The stamp set for the class was so awesome, as you can see. I was totally inspired by the little plus sign stamp.

The sneak image above and below shows some of the stamping I did using the Jonah alpha stamp. I love stacked text stamping and this alpha stamp was the perfect font and size.

Thanks again to Elle's Studio for having me. If you are a mini album lover this class is super full of amazing album inspiration so I hope you enjoy it.

Happy scrapping.
