Kelly Purkey Design Team Guest!

Hey gorgeous peeps. It's been a crazy last month around here. If you read this post, you know life has been hectic lately. Well it didn't slow down the way I had hoped because I had finals for school, I graduated with my bachelors degree, and then I had to say goodbye to my sick kitty which was heartbreaking. So it's my first time posting in a month, but I've got some pretty crafting projects to share with you today! Earlier this year I was a guest designer on the Kelly Purkey design team. I was so excited to work with Kelly's kits and make some gorgeousness with them! Here is what I made the month I was on her design team!

Traveler's Notebook Spread using Stamping and Kelly Purkey Kits

This traveler's notebook spread turned out so gorgeous. I'm loving the color theme I stuck with using these kits. I was obsessed with the black, white, and pink with pops of green. This spread also has a process video too because I love you guys like that!

2018 OLW Bullet Journal

My 2018 One Little Word is Visionary. This year I really want to step into my role as a visionary to help improve the lives of women with the knowledge I have to offer. My first part of doing that was launching The Body Love Art Journal class this year to help women make peace with their bodies and get creative. To track that and other goals centered around my One Little Word this year, I decided to make a bullet journal! 

This bullet journal is where I keep track of all my monthly goals centered around my OLW and my progress on them at the end of each month. You can see a process video for how I put together the start of this bullet journal on my YouTube channel here

2018 One Little Word Bullet Journal

Intro to my One Little Word Bullet Journal- I used a cute notebook (similar here) and got to work personalizing it. If you watch my YouTube process video, you'll see how I get creative and draw lots of flowers and floral patterns to create some of the gorgeous layouts in this new bullet journal. I started off this bullet journal with an entry on my 2018 One Little Word. I included the definition of my OLW, what it means to me, and how I want to live through it this year. Then I listed out my annual goals and created a cute vision board for my OLW and for my year.

I would love to hear what you think of it and hear about your 2018 OLW or how you are tacking your goals this year! Until next time, happy crafting!

Harry Potter World Mini Album Scrapbook

Going to Harry Potter World last year was one of the highlights of my life. Seriously. It's right up there with my baby sisters being born, the day I adopted my dog, and the day I launched my Hello, Gorgeous class. It was absolutely incredible. It was so inspiring and gorgeous and amazing, I can't put into words how much I loved it. So I'll let these pictures of my Harry Potter World mini album, scrapbooking the day, do the talking. I'm sure you'll be able to see all my positive vibes, memories, and gratitude shine through the pages I made. Here it is!

You can see the full flip through of these pages and get more information on how I made them by watching the YouTube video I made. Catch that here. I love these mini album pages so much. I think they reflect the gorgeous energy I felt all day at the park, and the pages turned out stunning and interesting. 

Let me know what you think of this mini album down below! Leave a comment if you loved it, if you've been to HP world, or if you want to go. I had been wanting to go since it opened years and years ago. Finally going was a dream come true and this album captures all those feelings. I hope you make some beautiful memories today and record them.
