December has flown by so quickly, once again. I used Kelly Purkey's holiday releases to document the month in my traveler's notebook. I used the Oh What Fun Traveler's Notebook Kit for this layout.
On this laypout, I used a mix of December Words, December Monograms and Christmas in the City stamp sets
During the week of Thanksgiving, my husband and I were traveling in Taiwan and Japan. I brought along some of my Kelly Purkey stamps to use in my travel journal.
I used the large 6x8 number set from the Holiday release to add our departure and arrival times. I also used the Cobble Hill alpha from the November release to add airport codes and titles throughout my entire journal.
I really like to keep my travel journals simple. I bring minimal supplies so I can focus on just getting words down rather than focusing on what stamps and embellishments I want to use.
Hi everyone! I wanted to share a Halloween layout I made of my son dressed up as Harry Potter! I used two of my favorite Kelly Purkey releases this month - Platform 9 3/4 and the Louise alphabet!
I used different stamps from the Platform 9 3/4 stamp set to create my own patterned background, perfect for adding his photo to. On the opposite page, I created my Harry Potter title with the Louise alphabet and added a lightening scar above the title! I really love how this layout came together!
Fall is definitely my favorite season, and I’m so glad that it’s finally here. The weather here is still pretty warm, but I am still pulling out my sweaters and getting all things pumpkin!
Kelly Purkey’s new releases have some fun stamps perfect for fall storytelling. I used the Story Time TN kit and the New Season stamp set to create this layout about spending some time with our family.
I’ve always loved buying different clips. When I see different shapes, sizes and colors, I want them all! I used the clip stamps from Kelly Purkey’s new Back to School mini kit to make a layout about my obsession.
I first randomly stamped the clips all over be page, using black and grey ink. I printed a photo of some of my many clips on my instax printer on black film.
I then took my embossing label maker to add my journaling.
One of my favorite things about summer is all the extra reading time we have. I try to finish a few books during the break while our lives slow down a little bit. This summer I decided to pick up the Harry Potter books that I never finished when my oldest started reading them years ago. Kelly Purkey’s Bookworm Traveler’s Notebook kit was perfect for documenting my newest addiction!
I found a Hogwart’s patch at Target that I wanted to use on my layout. Before adding it to the library card patterned paper, I used my typewriter to add the titles of all seven books in the series. I also randomly stamped a few books around the page. On the “reading” page, I added my journaling as well as stamped “summer” and “time”.
Hello everyone! I just love Ali’s Story Kit and Story Stamp this month, Adventure! I have a lot of undocumented trips and I wanted to at least get a little bit about them down in my journal. This layout was for my trip to Vietnam in March 2014. I printed one of my favorite photos on my Instax Share printer. I love the new black square film! I added a chipboard embellishment onto my photo and stamped “adventure” and “really, really excited” below the photo. I took the travel tags from the kit an added details about our trip on my typewriter. To do this, I used washi tape to tape the tags onto an piece of paper, making them easier to type on. I am hoping to creat an entire mini album for this trip soon, but for now, I am so happy that I have a piece of it documented!
The Rest & Relax Bonus Traveler's Notebook kit is definitely a favorite of mine from the Kelly Purkey April shop update! I love the color palette and all those leaves!
I loved the patterned paper with the half circles on them. I decided to cover most of the graph half circles with photos from a hiking trip. Luckily I had a circle punch that fit perfectly and made pulling this layout together a breeze.
Next I took the word stamps and randomly stamped them in white on the solid half circles.
To finish this layout, I took the colorful leaf patterned paper and cut a half circle from it, and adhered that to the pink leaf patterned paper. I then added a label and a coupe stickers to the layout. It's very simple but definitely one of my favorite layouts!
Hello everyone! Hope your April was a great one and you're ready for May! I just wanted to share my April projects using Ali Edwards new releases. This first project I created with the April Stories by the Month kit. I used the "special moments" stamp to create a patterned background. I covered half the page with black cardstock to make the instax print stand out a little bit more. I used a white pen for my journaling which gave my layout a nice pop. I finished with a couple embellishments and a few splatters of yellow paint.
My next layout I created with Ali's April Digital release. I resized one of the 4x6 cards to fit in my traveler's notebook. I added a digital brush to each photo before printing them on my instax Share.
Here's a sneak peek at my projects for the Type Story kits. I'm a Gueat Storyteller this month in the Type classroom. If you're a subscriber, my full layouts and process will be available to you there!
