52 Favorites 2018: Week 52

I am still chugging along finishing my second notebook for 52 Favorites. 52 Favorites is a project I heard about last year from Paper Issues with the idea being to document 1 favorite thing/moment/memory for each week. I started mid-January last year in a traveler's notebook format and have loved working on it. I finished one notebook for the first half of the year and have the second notebook about half done.

I used the newly released Full Heart Traveler's Notebook kit from Kelly Purkey Shop to document week 52. We took a day trip to Crystal Cove State Park and I loved walking around the beach with my family.

Kelly Purkey Birthday Wishes Kit

I'm joining the Kelly Purkey Creative Team this year and am so excited to show you one of the projects I made with this month's release. The January release is a pretty full one and both main kits are gorgeous!

The main kit, called Birthday Wishes, was perfect for creating a spread about my daughter's third birthday party. We celebrate birthdays A LOT in my family so this kit will get used up pretty easily.

2019 Creative Goals

It's a new year and I thought I'd share a recap of my projects from last year and my plans for memory keeping this year.

Kelly Purkey Shop Guest Designer - November

Sorry for the silence, but these last couple of months have been so incredibly busy and hectic! Now that Christmas is over, I'm trying to catch up on doing a few posts that have been on my list for a bit. In November, I was invited by Kelly Purkey Shop to be their guest designer. I've been a big fan of Kelly's work for a while and a long-time subscriber, so I was really honored to have been asked to do some projects!

The November release was a great one! I loved the bold colors and fun stamp sets. I ended up making 3 projects total.

Project Life 2018: Week 34

Week 34 was a difficult week of transition and changes. My daughter started going to school and we had to adjust to a different schedule, different people, and different places. Everything was eventually fine, but that first week was TOUGH!

Studio Calico October Stamp Set: Special Delivery

Stamps are some of my favorite things to play with so when Studio Calico asked if I wanted to try out the October stamp set, Special Delivery, I said yes of course! The stamps in this month's set, designed by Christine Herrin are super fun and versatile.

Project Life 2018: A long weekend in Seattle

In early May of this year, we took a short trip to Seattle to see some friends and play tourist. Although this trip will probably be documented more fully in a mini-album of some kind, I wanted to add a couple of inserts to my Project Life album as a summary.

I created one 9x12" spread for each day of the trip, so I ended up with 4 extra pages (2 total inserts) to add to my album.
