June Layouts with Kelly Purkey Shop

My summers are so full, I am behind with sharing my projects!

Here are my layouts with the Kelly Purkey shop’s June Release.

Azzari Jarrett | 6x12 Project Life Layout 2019

Documenting summer will always be a treat for me! I love how vibrant my photos are in the summer - these are paired with June’s Project Kit - Fun times.

I usually use my own handwriting in my layouts, but this time I used a cursive typewriter font - Eminenz. I simply printed my journaling on 4x6 cardstock using this font, cut out each piece, and used my tiny attacher to adhere to my photos.

For my traveler’s notebook spread, I used the Farm Fresh stamp set with the Summer Bucket List Traveler’s Notebook kit.

I love adding those tiny pictures to layouts!

Recent Film - Bald Head Island

Polaroids from a recent day trip to Bald Head Island, North Carolina.

It’s a short, 20 minute ferry ride to the island. Definitely one of the most fun parts of the trip.

Light leaks will always be my favorite.

May Layouts with Kelly Purkey Shop

This time of year is pretty busy for me. This is our last week of school, and I am looking forward to summer break and being able to get a little more time to create!

Here are two recent layouts with Kelly Purkey’s May Release.

Azzari Jarrett Project Life 6x12 Layout | 6x12 pocket page layout | Kelly Purkey May 2019

I continue to love the 6x12 inch format for my Project Life album this year. In this layout, I documented our trip in April to New Orleans to celebrate my father’s birthday.

I mainly used the May pocket page kit - Departure, and I also included a few elements from the Traveler’s Notebook kit, Travel Numbers, Life Love Paper’s Mini Kit: Travelogue, as well as the Athens and Rio alpha stamp sets.

This was a recent girls’ trip to the Bahamas - I love how quickly and easily these spreads come together. And how documenting in traveler’s notebooks has enhanced my process.

I find that I don’t like to use chipboard embellishments, or anything bulky for these spreads. So stamping, alphas and layering journal cards are definitely my go to techniques when working in this format.

This month, I am really excited to receive the new Ciao Swag Bag and Checked In Swag Bag - can’t wait to create with those goodies!

April Layouts with Kelly Purkey Shop

I’ve noticed over the years that my creative process ebbs and flows. Around this time every year, real life kicks in with 3 girls and my attention is diverted to end of the school year recitals, performances, and testing. This is the stage of my life right now, and I’ve learned to go with the flow.

Here are two layouts I completed with the most recent release from the Kelly Purkey Shop.

I used the Home Town Project kit to document our trip to New York last August to see Hamilton for my oldest daughter’s birthday. Unfortunately, this kit is already sold out, but be sure to check back for a restock!

I’m still working on finishing my 2018 album, so this was perfect to get these photos printed and in my 12x12 album. And no worries, I am still documenting 2019 in 6x12 format, so you will definitely see more of those layouts as well.

The stamps included in this kit are perfect for not only documenting your love for your home town, but also a favorite trip or destination.

All of my girls are general homebodies. They love to be home, and I love that we have created a home where they feel safe and want to stay.

The colors in this kit are beautiful - love how the pages work so well together.

I used the sofa stamp included in the kit to stamp directly on a 3x4 journal card from the project kit and added it to my layout.

March Layouts with Kelly Purkey Shop

It’s the 28th of the month, which is the March Shop Update for the Kelly Purkey shop! The theme for this month is food - and there are so many great products to get your favorite foods/meals documented.

Here’s my traveler’s notebook spread using the March Traveler’s Notebook kit, Food Journal. I documented my favorite meal - Sunday brunch.

I’m trying a new format with the traveler’s notebook layouts this month with an album from Citrus Twist.

Travels | Napa Valley

Travels | Napa Valley on 35mm film by Azzari Jarrett

It’s no secret that my husband and I love visiting Napa Valley. I’ve posted previous photos here, here, and here.

We were able to make a quick weekend trip at the beginning of March. We have such good memories there. It’s truly the only vacation where I actually feel rested when I return home.

This time of year is mustard season and Napa Valley is filled with a beautiful blanket of yellow. Here are 35mm film photos I captured with my Pentax K1000 and Kodak Portra 400 film. These were mostly taken at Frog’s Leap in Rutherford, Napa Valley, California.

Pieces Story Kit

Month after month, I am constantly inspired by Ali Edwards’ Story Kit subscription. Each kit is so thoughtfully curated for you to document your story.

Here’s what I created with last month’s Pieces Story kit:

Ali Edwards’ Pieces Story Kit Layout | Azzari Jarrett #craftthestory

I downloaded one of the bonus digital templates included with the subscription and resized it to 8.5 x 11 inches in Photoshop (this is the size of all my story kit layouts). I added my photos and journaling about 6 things, or pieces, that currently make up my life right now.

Pieces Story Kit Layout by Azzari Jarrett

After printing, I added a few embellishments from the kit and stamped the date - everything coordinates perfectly!

As always, I love how much I am able to dig deep and tell different stories than I capture in my project life layouts with these kits.

Products used: Ali Edwards Pieces Story Kit Subscription, Heidi Swapp 8.5 x 11 dark floral album, Epson Semi-gloss photo paper.

You can see all of my story kit layouts here.
