Monthly Wrap Up by Anja Wade
Hi everyone! It’s Anja, and I’m here today to share a project I created with the December release from Kelly Purkey Shop.
One of my favorite ongoing projects this year has been making my monthly summary layouts. I started in March and have since gone back and completed January and February. I decided to use this month’s release to do my November spread. One feature I’m including on every monthly spread is a giant number indicating the month, so I knew the Highline Numbers and Highline Outline Numbers would be perfect for this.
I started by selecting six of my favorite photos from the month and choosing three cards from the main kit. I chose the striped card for a splash of color, a plain lined card as a background for my giant number, and the “hello, there” quote bubble for some journaling space. Then I used the Highline numbers and outlines to stamp a giant number eleven, cut it out, and adhered it to my card.
The stamp set that comes with the Big Plans traveler’s notebook kit provided the perfect way for me to add some additional journaling to each photo. I stamped the divided box on vellum, added the date of each photo, and jotted down a few notes about the photo.
I stamped the word “November” with the Tina’s Months stamp set on my journaling card, and jotted down a quick list of my favorite events of the month. To finish up my layout, I decided to build an accent with the adorable stamp set that comes with the Love Notes main kit this month. I love stamp sets that let you build your own accents! I created a postage stamp, adhered it to my striped card, then “cancelled” it by stamping over the top of it. So adorable!
I hope you guys love this release as much as I do! I used it to document November here, but it’s also perfect for making plans and goals for the new year, and documenting your loves all year long!
