Project Life Page + Process Video: Today + KP June Release

Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing a page I put together using the June Kit from KP’s latest shop update. The kit is called My Day and it’s perfect for putting together every day spreads.


I loved loved loved the typography on the cards in this kit. It was a great way to tie together my page since I didn’t feel that my photos were very cohesive. Because the puppy snapchat filter plus eggs benedict.


The first picture is of my sister taking pictures of the cover of her summer scrapbook. I am so proud. Here’s the full shot.


I so love the colors of this kit. They’re light and airy and perfect for spring/summer pages. Also I’m a sucker for mint/coral so there’s that.

Be sure to check out the process video below!


I’m almost done with my Jonas Brothers Concert mini album – which I’m half excited about and half sad about. I really like living vicariously through my old photos and this album has definitely helped me do that. Anyway!

Road Trip-Full

I’m sharing this layout I put together using some random stuff for my stash. I’m also using a bunch of Clearly Kelly Stamp Sets which you can find over at


That alphabet stamp is perfect for both project life pages and planners. Super versatile and simple and goes with everything. I love it.


I also made some quick embellishments using some banner stamps. The clearly Kelly inks coordinated perfectly with the orange and yellow in the concert photos.

Kelly Purkey February Shop Update


Happy March! Today I’ll be sharing the project I made using Kelly Purkey’s February Shop update, which you can check out here.

If you’ve been following me, you know I’ve been working on a Jonas Brothers mini album focused on the various Jonas Brothers concerts I’ve been to throughout the years. This month’s Playlist Kit was seriously perfect for my Radio City Music Hall page.


The colors worked out so perfectly, it almost looks like I planned it. (I didn’t.)


This month’s kit came with some great journaling cards and the alphas that I’ve been using in a bunch of my projects lately. I finished the page off with some little embellishments like hearts and stars (because duh).


I used the stamp set that came in the kit to add some bars of music to the grey filler card.


On the other side of the page, I used the One & Only stamp set that was also released this month. Don’t forget to check out the process video down below!

Kelly Purkey January Shop Update


Today, I’m sharing the projects I’ve made using Kelly Purkey’s January shop update. You can check out her shop here at


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!

Don’t forget to check out the process video for the second layout!


January Favorites

Processed with VSCOcam with hb2 preset

Today I’m sharing my favorites for January.

First of all, it’s absolutely absurd that January is basically over but I’m also okay with that because that means we’re one step closer to warmer weather. If it never snows again this winter, I’ll be perfectly content.

1.) Studio Calico Arendal Documenter Kit
I’ve used this kit so much more than I thought I would when I first got it. I liked it fine when I got it in the mail. Of course, I pointed out my favorite black and white cards and worked it into my stash. But I’ve found myself coming back to the kit and working exclusively from it this month. The last time I loved a kit that much was last year’s Carolina Moon kit and I was absolutely obsessed with it. This month’s kit gets an A+ from me.

2.) Kelly Purkey’s Metropolitan Ave Alphabet Stamp Set
Again, this is another product I’ve found myself coming back to since I received it last month. It’s really versatile and the clean font works with pretty much everything. As usual, KP’s stamp quality is top notch, so there are no complaints on that front.

3.) Get To Work Book
I love my planner. I love being organized. I love that this is a no frills planner. Paper quality is great and none of my stamping or writing bleeds through. It’s big and it’s heavy, but I really love the weight and how much room I have to scribble notes down. Unfortunately, Elise is all sold out of the 2016 version so if you weren’t able to grab one, I am truly sorry for your loss because I love this thing.

4.) Studio Calico Pouches
I’m constantly looking to reorganize my workspace and make things more efficient because I don’t have all the time in the world to rummage through all of my supplies. I decided to start using the pouches for storage and I’m never not gonna use them like this again. I’m currently using three – one for my Clearly Kelly Planner Products, one for my embellishments (word stickers, washi sheets, etc), and one for all my scraps. They fit nicely in my IKEA Expedit shelves next to my 6×6 paper pads.

5.) Fuji Film Instax Share
I’ve wanted this for so long and it lived up to the hype. Works best with photos that haven’t been edited. It prints suuuuper quickly which is great because I’m impatient af. I love the look of washed out polaroids and instax photos so this thing is my new best friend.
