Let's Check in with The Groovy Chicks: Kelly

Have you met Kelly? Here she is :)

All about me—
Can you guess what my favorite color is? I’ve loved purple ever since I was little and had my bedroom painted lavender with dark purple shag carpeting.

From that description, can you tell it was in the 1970’s? For this layout, I have a lot of purple going on. First, I stamped these purple squares all over white cardstock with these cute square stamps from Inkadinkado. Then, if you look closely, you can see that I took a silver metallic pen and doodled a frame all around the edge of the paper. Next, I cut a large square shape from a template for the mat behind my photo. I cut a silver paper rectangle and rounded the corners. I cut a smaller dark purple rectangle and ran it through the paper crimper before using my paper edgers (have you used yours recently?) to trim the lateral sides. I cut some large purple scalloped circles using a Spellbinders die. For embellishments, I swiped iridescent purple Perfect Pearls on a piece of lace and stretch folded while attaching it to the paper. At the top, is a really pretty pin from Maya Road and a small sequin butterfly. My new favorite punch from Martha Stewart is the die-cut butterfly. It is so intricate—3 of those and a purple flower finish off the design. I made the fun word puzzle on Go to the site, hit “create”, type in a bunch of words and hit “go”. It will create a wordle just for you, and you can play with the settings to change the shape, colors, and fonts. It is fun and a little addicting. Have you made a layout all about you? Think of it as a gift to yourself-you never know what you might learn!


  1. Great LO Kelly! I am so glad you described it in such detail as that helped the page elements really pop out for me. I love purple too, especially paired with silver or teal!

  2. Wordle? I love it...I just got a bunch of WORD ART! I want to learn how to do it myself with different fonts and all! Great Job Kelly!
