  • July Projects with Kelly Purkey Shop

    I created some new projects featuring the July release at Kelly Purkey Shop and today I’d like to share them with you! For my first project, I used the gorgeous Snapshot main kit. It was perfect for documenting the last few days spent one summer in France and leading up to our return home. I […]

  • April Projects with Kelly Purkey Shop

      This month’s Kelly Purkey Shop release just went live which means I have a couple of new projects to share with you! This month’s release included the Hometown Love main kit and the Grow TN kit, as well as some fun additional stamps. You can view the entire release here. I filled out a […]

  • Project Life 2017: Week 37

    I’ve got several weeks from 2017 that are partially done (photos and a few journal cards selected) and just sitting on my desk. This weekend I spent a half hour finishing this one up. I had purchased the Stuff zine from LifeLovePaper last year and was inspired by the pretty colors and shopping theme to […]

  • Project Life 2017: Week 36

    I usually like kits for the cohesiveness and ease of putting together spreads, but occasionally, I don’t like the color scheme in the kit or the color scheme doesn’t go well with my photos. The latter was the case for this week, so I ended up using a mix of cards from at least 3 […]

  • Project Life 2017: Week 34

      I’m playing catch-up with Project Life over here and have roughly 15 weeks left in 2017. I had started Weeks 34-38 back in November but for some reason never finished them. I took a few hours this past weekend to finish up a few of these and will be sharing them during the week. […]

  • Project Life 2017: Week 23

    After a few weeks of not doing anything crafty, I was itching to sit back down at my desk and start again. I finished a pocket page spread that I had started before our vacation but didn’t get a chance to finish. The color scheme in this spread was inspired by an old sticker sheet […]

  • Project Life 2017: Week 25

    Today I’m sharing another week I completed last weekend during the baby’s nap time. I kept it pretty simple again to get it completed. Project Life to me at its core is really just photos + stories. I have to remind myself that, because sometimes I can get hung up on making things look perfect and pretty.Here’s a look […]

  • Project Life 2017: Week 24

    I’ve fallen behind a bit with Project Life while working on other things, but this weekend I managed to get a few spreads done by keeping them simple. I was inspired by Ali Edwards‘ recent use of sticking to a formula and used one she did a few weeks ago throughout this week’s spread. I […]

  • Project Life 2017: Week 22

    This week’s spread included the Memorial Day holiday. The group I swim with has a tradition of meeting at the sea to do a Memorial Swim in honor of those who have passed on. I haven’t been swimming much and heard the water temperature had dropped, so my daughter and I met our friends for […]

  • Project Life 2017: Week 21

      I’ve been having so much fun stamping in the traveler’s notebook I’ve been working on that I went a little crazy going through various stamp sets to complete this week’s spread. I used stamps from at least nine different sets, which must be some kind of record for me!The cards are a mix of […]
