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.

Project Life Page + Process Video: Battle of the Barkada

This blog has been so neglected. I am so sorry. But I’m back! Hopefully for a while. The intention is there. So.

I’m sharing this page today – it’s a 9×12 page with a 6×12 page. I was super inspired the the Studio Calico Outdoor Specialty Cards. I loved the different shades of blue and yellow plus the bits of gold. Theme-wise, they worked perfectly on this spread focusing on a field/game day I had with my friends a couple of weeks ago.

I brought the gold down to the bottom of the page using these American Crafts Imprint Thickers in white and gold.

I brought the yellow to the other side of the page using another card from the set. I loved that textured looking portion of the card. I brought the blue over with a paper clip from Freckled Fawn.

Also, that #squad wood veneer was perfect. When I have too many pictures – especially 4×6 ones – I like putting them together on a 3×4 canvas and printing it that way. It makes picking photos a lot easier.

Mini Vlog + Process Video: New York

Today I’m sharing a grid page. This page is from my and my boyfriend’s anniversary date a few weeks ago. We went to see Aladdin on Broadway – which was amazing, highly recommend – and grabbed some food after.

I used some cards and papers from the Studio Calico January Documenter Kit and from the newly opened Push Print Studio. Caytlyn from Push Print Studio sent me a couple of card sets to try out and I love them. They’re so modern and trendy and totally up my alley. They’re so very much my style and I highly recommend them.

I also used the stamp set from Kelly Purkey’s Mini in Minutes kit from last month which is, sadly, sold out 😦 sorry guys. Also used some Smashbook stuff from K&Company. I love the bits of blue and yellow through the page. Also, the black and white because of course.

Magic Kingdom + the Fuse Tool

MK-5

If you know me at all, you know I love Disney World. Like, a lot. 70% of the time, I wonder why I’m not there.

I’ve been putting off finishing my Disney album because I use it as an escape back to the happiest place on earth. Which has been especially helpful during the worst season of the year (I love Disney as much as I hate winter).

MK-1

I put together this page using my Becky Higgins Fuse Tool. When I first printed these pictures, I knew I wanted to use the Fuse tool, but I was always a bit nervous because melty page protectors just don’t sound like a good time. This page focuses on how freakin beautiful Magic Kingdom is at night.

MK-2

I’ve been hoarding that gold star vellum from the Studio Calico Brighton Pier collection for probably about two years. I deem thee worthy, Magic Kingdom. The rest of the scraps come from the Dear Lizzy Serendipity 6×6 Paper Pad and the Studio Calico Arendal Kit (as if I haven’t raved about that kit enough since I got it).

Process video is below. You know what to do. Until next time.

Kelly Purkey January Shop Update

January-detail2

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.

stuckwithme-detail2

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.

January-full

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.

January-detail4

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!

January-detail3

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!

Process Video | Happy 24th

I’ve been so, so, so excited to start putting together my 2016 album. I feel like I’ve said that about 349,857,394 times, but it hasn’t gotten any less true. And with my excitement comes the motivation to share. So along with my weekly process videos, which you can find over here, I’m going to try to share the detailed shots on my blog – especially for those of you who aren’t really into the whole process video thing.

24-1

Earlier this month, I celebrated my boyfriend’s birthday. It was super low key since life is busy and sometimes it’s just the little things that count. We played some video games before we grabbed dinner at Tori Ramen & Chicken. It was his first time going and I knew he was going to love the wings. Dreaming about them as I type, tbh.

24-3

I put this layout together with the Studio Calico Arendal Documenter Kit along with some random cards from other kits (I’m gonna take a guess and say the balloon card is from Far, Far Away and the middle card is from Wink, Wink). I drew a lot of the colors from the food. So, thanks to that lovely bowl of ramen, you’ll see the greens and yellows repeated throughout the page.
