this month's shop update from kelly was so good. the alpha, the beer stamps, the quotes for journaling cards. loved it all. i used a little bit of each stamp set on my sister layout for this month's design team project. the quotation marks are my all time fave. lots of grey, black & white on most of my layouts & this month's kit had a ton of great neutrals to use. i used a quote i found online that fit so perfectly for our sister conversation and documented the day with the "he said, she said" stamp from this month's kit. also, i had to throw in a beer stamp for my glass of allagash white at low brau (if you're around downtown sac this place is a must). making patterns for PL cards is something really fun to do with type  & i decided to use the '@' from this month's alpha to create a location card that would balance out all the other type on the layout. sister day documented with a special photo i snuck of her even though she wanted to kill me for it. (love you jess)
for my second layout this month i stuck with the neutrals (surprise, surprise) to let the photos shine. some journaling about my birthday morning & waking up so so early for a full photo adventure day with Adrien. lots of hearts for this one using jamie's kit stamps that are unfortunately now sold out (gotta be QUICK on the shop updates man or subscribe!) & a few of last month's morning stamps. i also snuck in that SF stamp from kelly's hero art destination release & a few of my favorite grey studio calico stickers. &&&, best advice i could give, grab the label stamp kelly released for her planner set earlier this year. i basically use it on every layout & it was a perfect circle layer for that snooze button circle as a border. perfection. 
if you have any questions feel free to leave me a comment or if you just want to say YO!..  do that because i would giggle. xo.
