Celebrate Die-Cember™ with New Kelly Purkey Products!

We are thrilled to continue in the Die-Cember™ festivities and share a brand new release of Kelly Purkey products!  Kelly’s products are not only fun and fabulous designs, but they are the perfect fit if you are planning on documenting your 2014 in pocket-style.  You’ll find new wafer thin dies AND clear stamp sets in Kelly’s latest release.

If you are looking for inspiration for the new year, be sure to pop over to Northridge Publishing.  You can purchase Kelly’s new December Signature series E book for just $5.99.  That’s right!  $5.99 for loads of full color inspiration by Kelly.  I road tripped with my hubby last week and this book sure made that 4 hour car ride go quickly.  My head is filled with inspiration for starting off my 2014 with a creative punch!

Are you planning to document 2014?  Instead of documenting the whole year, I like to make pocket books to document trips, events, vacations and my favorite memories.  My kids and I have begun creating random “week in the life” books through the year so everyday life is still captured.  Over Thanksgiving, our whole family poured over our memory keeping books and it was a perfect reminder to me to keep savoring this journey we call life through documenting it.

We’d love to hear how you document your favorite memories through the year.  Share with us in the comments below and we will randomly choose a winner for a $25 shopping spree.  Just in time for the holidays…. :)

  1. I scrap everyday moments throughout the year in a digital format and in a 12×12 album. Love using stamps on my pages and making my own embellishments.

  2. I still scrap in 12×12 format. I love playing with paper and trying new techniques. I love the stamp set with the f bomb. I must have it!!

  3. I document my memories in standard scrapbooks but would love to try some of the pocket pages soon. I love getting together with friends to scrap and stamp, and to share my albums.!

  4. I take a lot of photos, and keep a small journal. Then when I have time or feeling inspired, I take out my journal and the related photos and go with the flow. I feel less pressure to document and play with my supplies this way.

    1. I use standard 12 x 12 pages for scrapping, but I would love to try pocket pages. I’ve tried digital scrapping. For me, it’s not as satisfying as traditional scrapping. I like scrapping with friends.

  5. I documented (for the first time) with Project Life for 2012, everyday! This year I did 80% combination PL and Life Documented, I just love SS bright colors. And been documenting same style my grandson’s everyday since May on a separate album. And since I am new to scrapbooking and love the traditional 12×12 LO I still create an occasional current LO and am trying to do as many as I can from past.

  6. I don’t document every day and every week – I make mini albums for my trips and scrap photos I like most and sometimes I do something like “week in the life” pages.

  7. Adorable dies! I scrap events throughout the year. I have a separate 12×12 book for my pets, vacations and family.

  8. I bought a pocket album and pockets to document a recent trip to the US (we live in Australia) it’s started, but many photos are still to be printed and placed in their pockets. There were over 3,000 photos from a two week trip! A job for out January summer holidays.

  9. I’m starting Project Life in 2014, I’ve everything ready and I’m ready to start! Just keeping my fingers crossed now that Santa will be bringing me a Silhouette! Have a great Christmas everyone!

  10. I don’t have a structured way that I document my memories, but I do take photos regularly. I like to make photo albums from holidays or sometimes I will make one album for a whole year.

  11. I tried pocket documenting—not for me! I love my traditional scrapbooking method, it works for me, has been for many years. I love Kelly’s stamps…fun, unique designs! Definitely going to try the newer stuff!

  12. Traditional 12×12 scrapbooking for me. I did a pocket style once for my niece’s high school memories. I really would like to try another. Love KP’s products.

  13. I have actually slacked off keeping records of what happens in the year and really need to begin again. My children are grown and it is just my husband and myself, however, we still have events in our lives that are worthy of keeping a journal on them. I like the idea of a smaller version of keeping memories and will most certainly give this a try! Thank you for sharing!

  14. I capture my moments in a meal journal and an art journal. I could tell you what I ate for dinner 15 years ago today and who was At my table. The art journal is a recent addition in 2013.

  15. I do 12×12 layouts by printing an “everyday photo”…place the photo and supplies on my work area and then work on it a little at a time. I don’t preplan my layouts or cards so it gives time for the creative process to unfold. It also balances the fun of creating with getting it done. Have fun everyone. Love the new dies and KP’s stamps capture life perfectly.

  16. I have slacked off on scrap booking but still take photos and journal! Maybe in the new year I will actually scrap a few pages!

  17. I take lot of pics,buy souvenir magnets and document all the small things from trips like tickets, itinerary,etc..Im planning to make a journal with all of these.

  18. I am a big time scrapbooker! I have a habit of taking photos of almost evrything (especially events my children are in- accomplishments they make-and our holidays) and writing my children little notes to stash in their books. I really enjoy it and it gives them something to look foward to!

  19. I am years behind on my scrapbooking but I keep taking and storing the pictures. Hopefully I can play catch up later on in life. I found myself making cards more then scraping.

  20. I have to confess that apart from taking pictures, I don’t document any favourite moments. Scrapbooking is not for me, and I’m way behind putting my photos in albums. Recently I’ve been thinking though that pocket albums might actually work for me…

  21. I cannot understand the need for profanity in your stamp sets. Isn’t it enough to have it thrown in your face everywhere you go? I think it is totally unnecessary. Clean it up!!!

  22. I scrapbook in many different ways both digital and with lots of SSS dies and stamps…Really in all different formats too. I have started using pocket pages and using them more for scrapping events than weekly format.

  23. I will continue my art journal for sure. I also have some of the materials for Project Life but haven’t started yet because I found it rather intimidating and potentially time consuming. Not to mention two dimensional and I love embellishments! I have decided to document only big events and things that strike me as significant and that has taken the pressure off! Looking forward to the new year and might as well take this opportunity to say Happy New Year to all!

  24. I am an addicted scrapbooker. I make 12 x 12 albums and also mini albums throughout the year. I made a pocket page album for a family vacation. I still get the greatest satisfaction from traditional scrapbooking.

  25. I started Project life this summer and have been enjoying that. I do a couple of pages per month so it keeps the pressure of me of remember exact moments in each week.

  26. I keep thinking I will do Project Life or something like it, and I have all the stuff from several different manufacturers. :) But mostly, I am just a card maker who Instagrams. Maybe 2014 will be the year I dust all that stuff off and put it to use! ;) I really love Kelly’s stuff, it’s so cool!
