Coffee & Books Project Life Layout with the July Kellie Stamps Release!

The latest Kellie Stamps release is out for July and of course, I somehow managed to use all four sets (Book Review, Rise and Shine with some great script by Alex Hunter, Big Day and I Was Here) again on this layout. Ha. I always mean to use just one or two but then I have them all sitting on my desk and they just dab themselves all over my layout. The main stamp set I wanted to focus on is the Book Review stamp set as the bulk of these pics came from a trip to the library (but first coffee, duh – the but first stamp from the Rise and Shine set in collaboration with Alex Hunter is just perfect here!) except for the yarn picture in the top left corner that I just included because it went with the colour feel of the layout. Which was all minty and pink and pastel and black journal card and embellishment-wise. I stuck to stamping in black because it worked with everything I was doing.

Here’s a close up of the really great fill-in-the-blank review stamp from the Book Review set. It’s so great! I stamped it on a yellow card and adhered it to this unicorn journal card because unicorns, duh. In fact, if you look I’ve got unicorns, then swans and a cat. Ha. It’s all about the cute. I used the Big Day stamp to give some day of the week context in the middle card because most of these pics are from the same day. And the cute check box below from the I Was Here set paired perfect with this large This thicker. throughout I used tiny heart stickers to fill things in.

So that’s my first layout this month showing off the July sets which as usual are amazing. Seriously. Kellie always comes out with a nice range of really useful everyday stamps that make their way into my must-have Project Life tool kit and some really fun themed sets. I’m always so excited to see what’s next. Later this month I’ll post my second layout using the July sets. Some of the other Kellie Stamps team ladies and I did a Day in the Life on July 1st. I was camping that day and we went on a hike and there are TOO many good pictures of that day.
