Welcome to another installment of our What A Week blog series! This month, we’ve asked Kelly Purkey to join us as we pair her stamps with our Serenade collection. She and I have each created a layout documenting a week in our lives using the same products. We’ll also be giving you a chance to win the same products for use on your own weekly layout!
This month, I chose to document the 40th week of this year – just a few weeks ago! I’m actually two plus months behind on documenting our weeks this year so I love that this week really documents what my life is currently like right now.
[Left Page] Four month well baby check-up. The Met Life blimp. PreK craft project. Story time nametag. Afternoon bike ride. Monthly photo of all three kiddos. A favorite toy.
Kelly’s October stamp is the reason why I skipped ahead to document a more current week in my album. This stamp is also perfect to document your life in July 2013 – yes, I checked. Simply cover the October with stickers and you’ve got the perfect calendar for that month as well!
My four year old’s handwriting is an ever evolving masterpiece. I wanted to include her name tag from storytime this week and easily did so by simply trimming a sheet of paper from the Serenade 6×6 Paper Pad to fit this pocket and creatively cropping the name tag itself.
Kelly’s Magic stamp was the perfect match for this photo of my daughter riding her bike under these bright autumn leaves. I actually used the stamp on the back of tag that was tied around the stamp’s handle. A great repurpose of product packaging!
[Right Page] Craft time after breakfast. A walk on the trail. Post-nap snuggles. 4 month photoshoot. Date night. Our weekly Target trip. Tiger fans.
I love using stamps for my weekly layouts as they’re so easy to customize. Kelly’s Field Notes stamp and a strip of paper provided the perfect embellishment for this photo.
I love the Serenade alphabet stickers and how three different alphas are included on a single sheet. I paired one sticker with a sticker from the Serenade Titles stickers for an easy embellishment for my son’s monthly photo.
Kelly’s Happiness Right Here stamp was the perfect choice paired with a business card of a new restaurant my husband and I tried on a date night.
Now that you’ve taken a peek at what I created, how about taking a look at what Marcy came up with? Click here to visit Kelly’s blog and view her What a Week layout created with the same products I used.
But before you go…
We’d love to give one lucky BG fan the chance to use the same Serenade products we utilized to create their own weekly layout – with plenty of product left over for other projects! See the giveaway box below for your chance to win.
