Today, I’m sharing the projects I’ve made using Kelly Purkey’s January shop update. You can check out her shop here at kellypurkeyshop.com.
The first layout I’m sharing is probably the sappiest thing I’ve ever made in all my history of scrapbooking. As you know, I’m not a sappy person at all which is kind of ironic because I think scrapbooking is pretty damn sappy. But when I got this month’s kits and stamp sets, I couldn’t help myself. Last month was my boyfriend and my anniversary so I decided to put together a little anniversary insert.
I used the You’re a Lifesaver stamp set for a bunch of bits in this layout. My favorite stamp from that set is the one that says “i like you and i love you” because – I believe – it’s loosely based on a quote from my favorite show in the whole world (which is saying something because I watch way too much tv), Parks and Recreation. If you watch it, you know exactly what I’m talking about. If you don’t, then what are you doing with your life that you’re not watching Parks and Rec??? It’s on Netflix. All of it. Go.
For the cards, I cut down a card from the Mini in Minutes kit and the High Five kit. I used the alphabets in both kits because I love alphabet stickers. I did a bunch of stamping right on the instax photos. I used Staz On ink and it worked perfectly. Then I just went ahead and used my Tiny Attacher to staple the photos in my pockets.
For my second layout, I used a bunch of bits from both kits that I mentioned before. I used the Williamsburg alpha which I love. It fits perfectly with the Greenpoint alpha (which, unfortunately, is sold out 😦 wahhhh). EDIT: they’re both sold out. my bad, yall.
Again, I used the ‘I like you and I love you’ stamp because I’m obsessed. I thought that little section was perfect for a tiny stamp. I did some journaling and stamping on the pink card because I’m trying to hand journal more even though I really, really, really don’t like it. But I’m trying!
And I’m sooo loving the fact that the kits come with alphas now. They’re in a great clean font that will go with anything. They’re a perfect size for pocket pages!
