Hi Abby, I think it'll be posted on her personal blog.
Hi Tiffany, my Portland favorites are in a Destination Documented course: Have a good trip!
It seems crazy to type Week Forty-Five since that's so close to the end of the year and the album. I already started my 2016 album, which I want to share soon, but have a few more to post wrapping... Continue reading

My first trip this year was down to Anaheim, California for the Craft + Hobby Association tradeshow. It was such a good, good time because I had the chance to touch base with store owners and colleagues, as well as... Continue reading

With the shop update on the 28th!
Going to try the upgraded paper next time - excited to see what it's like!
Thanks, Kathleen! It's a combination of both - the Blurb templates were great but sometimes I wanted more contrast with pages that were side by side.
Hi Abby! There will eventually be a blog for the shop but right now you can find all their work posted on the shop Instagram account - @kellypurkeyshop :)
I use a variety but this one here was just a Sharpie pen!
Hi there, Mary - it was done in Photoshop :)

I've never had any problems with having the film go through the x-ray in the package or in the camera. Enjoy your trip!
A quick note about a new shop update with the Clearly Kelly planner stamps - hooray hooray! There are thirteen new stamp sets perfect for planners, Project Life, Traveler's Notebooks, and tags. I hope you'll stop over and check them... Continue reading

Hi there, glad you're trying a book! I think my preference is to keep the photo books 100% photos and then add those bits into my scrapbooks. I think if you adhere too much in there, it might be tough on the binding - especially for a soft cover, which tends to be really tight in my experience. That's probably not the answer you were looking for, but I hope that makes sense!
Wrapping up the Asia album I started in the summer and I have to say it feels SO GOOD to be done! I felt like this was a huge project for me since I had saved so much + had... Continue reading

I'm going to have to try the premium - glad to hear you recommend it! I think I'm on a photo book + Project Life (with a few mini albums here and there) stage to minimize things a bit. It is tough to decide!
Yes! Mixbook is definitely the next one I'm going to try, looking forward to seeing their finished product.
Yes - do it!
Thank you for the tip! I am super curious about a comparison between the premium option now - will have to try it :)
Back with one more post sharing another photo book today. This is my Blurb book about three weeks spent in Europe back in August. We spent most of the time in Paris with trips to Croatia, Brussels, and Stockholm -... Continue reading

Thanks for mentioning the Moleskine album! I saw a peek of Liz Tamanahana's a while back and forgotten about them. I remember they seemed a bit out of my price range but looked so beautiful. Will have to check this out again, thanks for the reminder!
Happy New Year, everyone! I love a fresh start and am very happy to be turning the calendar page to 2016. Here's to a great year ahead for everyone. I'm looking forward to continue sharing here and in my shop... Continue reading

If I did all 52 weeks it would definitely take two albums total!
The New Adventures is here in my shop:
