Mondays in May with May: WEEK ONE!

I can’t begin to tell you how delighted I was when Kelly Purkey began teaming up with Simon Says Stamp – and now it isn’t just stamps but she will also have papercrafting kits, embellishments, and more? Color me excited! It’s May Flaum here, and I’m excited to be here blogging and sharing a new project that I created just for the Simon blog. Yes, I’ll be sharing a layout I created with the April-May project kit and several of the exclusive Kelly Purkey products available in the shop as well.

Editors note: The June/July Project Kit was sneaked on the blog this weekend, check it out!!!!!!!

Supplies used:


I love how wonderfully these products work for my traditional 12×12 scrapbooking – and since the cards are 3×4 they work perfectly with my 4×6 photos that I often use!

My tip for working with the vellum is to either stitch it, adhere it where the adhesive won’t show, staple it, or use brads to attach it. Personally I love how stitching looks on vellum, and I also love journaling on it!

How-to:
1. Color the woodgrain cards with distress inks and a foam blending tool
2. Assemble photo (4×6), cards, vellum (adhered under the photo), and patterned paper.
3. Stitch the vellum to the page at the top.
3. Stamp “So This Happened” as well as the arrow border
4. Add sequins, washi, and journaling to finish the page.

These simple alphabet stickers are the perfect size, and I love how the sequins are the perfect accent for so many of my projects!

If you’d like to see another layout made with these products, I’m sharing one today over at my blog. I don’t know about you – but I don’t think I’ll be able to get enough of these Kelly Purkey exclusives for Simon Says Stamp any time soon!
