when i got the email that kelly wanted me to be on creative team i just sort of stared at it for a minute in disbelief... kelly has inspired me for years. i am humbled to be creating on a team with so many inspiring women and i can't wait to share more crafts here. this month kelly released a bunch of new faves & if you haven't already, make sure you head over to her SHOP to grab what you can before they are gone. i made two layouts with the newest stamps after i had an intense debate about what size project life i would make this year ( & yah ...  i JUST started this years and haven't even come close to finishing any year of project life ) ...

the music stamp is sure to get a lot of use over here. i have so many concert photos so this was perfect for me. last summer we saw atmosphere at the greek theater in berkeley with brother ali & dilated peoples. so so so good. & that headphone stamp...just as good. i love a bit of messy stamping & that illustration was perfect. the cards that came with the kit had the perfect pop of red so i stuck with black & white so everything worked together. 

this lovely layout is brought to you by valentine's day & a crazy five course meal. i wanted to use the newest number stamps & put them to work for me. i stuck with pops of red for heart day & of course it matched my lipstick so...why not. i threw in a few cards from kelly's hot mess kit from a few moths back because i love the watercolor look & wanted to soften the overall vibe with all of those bold colors.  i used stāzon ink to stamp each numbered course on its respective food photo & voilá, i'm full just looking at it. 

i can't wait to share more crafts here & be sure to check out kelly's SHOP for all the good stuff.
