A little (KP) stamping & fun…

It’s summer here, and I have been keeping to a strict (minimal) work schedule the last three weeks as I’ve had loads of family and friends and good times. I mean I turn my computer on once a day, then turn it all the way off (unheard of!!) until the next day because we’re busy with fun family stuff. Most days I don’t make it up to the studio even! Which is AWESOME, but, I feel ready to jump back into more creative work! I knew just what to kick it off with too.

I am a fan of the Kelly Purkey products for Simon – and I knew I had to use her June/July (sold out) kit for this food truck adventure page…


I had SO much fun layering bits and pieces from the kit onto this page about one of our food adventures. There will be several pages about this day, but I wanted to use this kit for these ones. I *love* how Kelly’s products work so well for my style of scrapbooking. This was major fun to make.


My photos are 3×5 on this page – I’ve started printing my iPhone photos that size just to mix it up a bit and because it was the same price as 4×6 so I figured, why not?


The ombre effect on the good life card is so cool – I’m glad I got it used before it got buried in my stash. Can you tell what fun I had playing with this? Oh yes, and one more thing! This layout is my (late!) entry to this week’s Simon Says Stamp & Show challenge “a little stamping” as I finished this layout off with just a little stamping from the kit set.
While our challenge is “a little stamping” – you can interpret that with a small amount of stamping, a small stamp – whatever you like! Be sure to visit the blog to see all of the other creations and to enter. This week’s prize (as always) is a $50 voucher to Simon Says Stamp! The winner is randomly drawn – you can enter by posting to your blog, flickr, or other site too. See the blog for entry details and rules as usual.
I might be late due to my summer vacation – but it’s better than nothing. Plus I had a most excellent time taking my time today, being leisurely and creating something fun. A story I wanted to record and with products I just love. Crafting just doesn’t get bettr than that!!

Before I go – a little birdie (ok, Simon’s instagram account) told me.. simon
