I got to meet Kelly Purkey in Manila!! Woohoo!! I couldn’t believe it! As soon as Life Documented Manila announced that they are hosting this event. I quickly signed up! It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity that I sure don’t want to missed. Its was a one day event where KP taught 2 kinds of classes. AM class is for Project Life and PM class is for mini album. The event was held yesterday June 6, 2015 at Open Space, Makati City. The space itself was small but cozy. It just enough to to accommodate a coffee bar, mini snack bar and a LDM merchandise pop up.
AM – Project Life Pages. I arrived just in time before the class started. I’m a huge bundle of nerves! I’m so excited and at the same time scared of what to expect. I was totally blown away on how fast paced the class was. In a span of 2 hours, we were able to create around 16 different project life cards! I like how versatile and different it felt making our own project life cards from 6×6 paper pad, stickers, ephemeras and stamps. Now I can use my ample stash of 6×6 paper pads, I have managed to collect quite a few.
PM –Mini Book Class. With few sheets of 12×12 pattern paper, ephemera die cut pack and KP’s wallet album system, we manage to make a cute mini album in the span of 2 hours! So cool!
After each classes, we had an opportunity to take a instax photo with KP. In my excitement, I forgot to ask them to take a digital photo of KP and I! After the much needed photo op, it’s shopping time! In a corner of the venue, LDM have a pop up shop. Good thing though that I brought an ample cash with me. I was so tempted to get two new KP’s kits, I however have to be more practical. With a couple of hours debating what to get, I manage to take home 4 kinds of 3×4 stamps! 2 pieces are from Clearly Kelly line and the other 2 are from the newly released LDM stamps.
The workshop participants also get to take home an exclusive LDM kit with stamp! Its a nice addition to out loot bag, though for me personally it would be nicer if the kit or the stamp aren’t sold else where but I guess it’s better for their business. All in all I can say, it was a fun way to spend a day learning and scrapbooking with people who shares the same hobbies/passion as me.
