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!

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.

And here is my project life layout using a mix of products from this month’s release.

6x12 Project Life Layout by Azzari Jarrett

For this layout, I used the very versatile Alberta and Irvington alpha stamp sets. I also used the Happy Hour stamp set, Life Love Paper Mini Kit: That’s Bananas, and the March Project Kit - Eating Out.

Here’s a closer look.

Be sure to share with me what you create. I’d love to see it!

Project Life 2019 | Shadows and Light

6x12 Project Life Layout by Azzari Jarrett

This year, I am sticking with my formula of letting the photos tell the story. I love including my recent film images in my album. I find that I am always drawn to shadows and light, and that’s what I wanted to document in this spread.

For this spread, I used journal cards from my Anemone Collection to document the date and a highlights of this spread. I also used Tina’s months stamp set for “February” andthe Twenty Nineteen stamp for the year.

Simple images that tell a story wins every time for me.

All photos printed on my Epson Picturemate PM-400 using Epson Semi Gloss photo paper. I’m also using a black 6x12 Album by We R Memory Keepers I purchased a while back, similar option here. Page Protectors are Design H and 6x12 protectors, 4x6 inch pockets.

February Layouts with Kelly Purkey Shop

The February shop update for the Kelly Purkey Shop is available today! There are so many good products included in this release - including the Wonderful Women stamp and Girl Power.

Here is a look at my layouts with the new products this month.

Documenting Project Life in a 6x12 album by Azzari Jarrett

For this 6x12 inch project life layout, I used the new project kit, Tag You’re It. I love all of the blues and corals that are included in this kit. Also, the stamp set is perfect for adding details to your layouts, or creating your own journal cards.

Here’s a closer look.

I’m using this 6x12 album, and Design H page protectors.

I used two more stamp sets to document in my traveler’s notebook. I’m finding that I’m a bit more playful in this space, and I love how easy it is to create a layout when you are not restricted by page dividers, just space to create.

Traveler’s Notebook Details Layout by Azzari Jarrett

The Little Details kit by LifeLovePaper is perfect for documenting my morning cup of coffee, recently captured on film. I created my own travelers notebook inserts for this layout, using the “Details” stamp and the XL Park Slope alpha stamp set.

And finally, if you only get one product in this release, I would definitely get this one - OK Ladies.

When I saw the face stamp, I immediately knew I wanted to make a few brown faces for journal cards. I used a bit of arcyla gouache paint for the faces and definitely went a little a little overboard with the stamping, but it was so much fun to create custom cards. Definitely keeping these handy for a future layout.

Let me know what you decide to get from the February release! You can see the rest of the creative team release in the idea gallery.

Project Life 2019 | Letting Photos Tell the Story

Sometimes I love combining words + photos in my project life layouts, and other times I like the photos to tell the story.

Azzari Jarrett | Project Life 2019 | Letting the Photos Tell the Story | 6x12 Layout

I included only two journal cards from the Fresh Start Documenter Kit by Studio Calico. And if you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I love to include film in my layouts. For this spread, I printed out three 4x6 inch prints of my favorite film images from my most recent 35mm roll.

I combined them with two photos from my week and I love the simplicity. No fancy embellishments, just the photos.

Sometimes simple is best.

If you find yourself at a loss for words, allow your photos to tell the story.

January Layouts with Kelly Purkey Shop

Excited to share that I am on the 2019 Kelly Purkey Shop Creative Team! I absolutely love Kelly’s products, and I am looking forward to combining the beautiful stamps and paper with my images each month.

The January shop update is available today!

Here is a pocket page layout I created with the January kit called “Birthday Wishes”, perfect since January is also my birthday month.

Azzari Jarrett | January Project Life Layouts | 6 x 12 layout

My husband and I spent the week of my birthday is Paris this year. It was a magical trip, and I can’t wait to share more images soon! I chose a few of my favorite photos to pair with the journal cards, stickers, and stamps. I love the baby blue alphas in this kit, and how they pair so nicely with the pinks and corals.

I’m just a couple of weeks in, but the 6x12 format is working nicely for me. I am using this album, but in black, and Design H page protectors.

The Traveler’s Notebook this month is “Full Heart”. I used it to create this spread in my traveler’s notebook:

I also included “the future is bright” 3x8 pattern paper from the “This Year” mini kit, also in this month’s release.

My polaroids from this trip came out so dark and moody. Not the best, but combining film in my layouts will always be my love language.

And the stamps! Love how this “oui”, included in the True Love stamp set, was perfect for adding a little bit of French in my layout.

I used the Brooklyn Heights alpha stamp for “Paris”.

I’m looking forward to sharing my projects with Kelly Purkey Shop with you this year!

2019 Project Life Plans + Modern Printable Journal Cards

Azzari Jarrett | Project Life 2019 Title Page | 6x12 layout

A new year brings a fresh start in many ways. After going strong with project life from 2013 - 2015, my albums from 2016 - 2018 are still left unfinished. I am determined not to quit, and starting fresh in 2019 is just what I need.

I will be using a 6x12 inch album this year. I’ve had this black We R Memory Keepers album for a few years now, and I can’t seem to find this exact one online anymore, it looks to be discontinued. Here is an aqua version, and it looks like Studio Calico has 6x12 inch cloth options.

Here is a look at my 2019 title page:

Azzari Jarrett | 2019 Project Life Title Page | 6x12 layout

I used Design H page protectors for this layout. I’m finding that 6x12 inch pocket pages will be a little hard to find, but I think I will use my fuse tool to create custom page pockets based on what I already have.

I first designed and used these title card designs in 2017, and I love all of the cohesiveness it gives my albums. The “and now let’s begin again” journal card is from Ali Edwards’ January Stories by the Month subscription.

I’m looking at this project as more of a creative mindset. Adjusting and bending, and making this project work for me instead of the other way around. I’m really excited about this year, this new format is just what I need to get me motivated!

If you’d to use these title cards in your layout, you can find them in my shop. Definitely let me know if you decide to use them.

And just for fun, my title pages from 2018, 2017, 2016, and 2015.
