It’s the 28th of the month which means there are new kits and products available at Kelly Purkey Shop! This month’s release is TRAVEL-themed, which is heaven for me because (1) I have a serious case of wanderlust and (2) I have piles of photos from trips just waiting to be added to mini-albums!! If you haven’t seen the full release yet, you can check out all the new products here.
Several of the stamps are city-specific and the I Heart NY stamp inspired me to work on an unfinished album from a trip to NYC back in 2014. I chose to document a walk to Brooklyn and printed a few photos from that afternoon.
Since the photos were rather neutral in color, I picked cards and papers that were also neutral to match. I love that the B-sides of the cards and papers are usually black and white which goes with everything! The globe and geotag cards were cut down from the Travel Numbers TN kit and the other two cards are from the Departure kit.
With my cards and photos in place, I had some fun embellishing with the stamps. I used the Travel Words, Departure, Travel Numbers, and A Day In the City stamps to create the cluster of stamps on the photo of the Brooklyn Bridge.
Of course I had to use the I Heart NY stamp on this spread about NY and used it liberally on the photo of the skyline, on the Away card, and over the geotag card.
Lastly I used a couple of the stamps from the Travelogue kit on the card with my journaling to add some interest.
I’m sure it will make its way to a future spread though!
I did a few more spreads with this release for a more recent mini-album – stay tuned!! 🙂
