I’m so excited to have an amazing guest designer this week!

Everyone say hello to Melanie Blackburn!

Melanie first caught my eye with her wonderful traveler’s notebooks on Instagram. I’m so glad we connected because when I saw what she did with a bit of  KBS goodies?


I was in total awe!

Check it out.




[ Designs | Travelers Pack: Splendid.  Stamps | Oh Yeah + By The Numbers ]

I looooove the By The Numbers stamped background! I’m gonna have to do that someday. And the combination of all the little word stamps combined with words from the Splendid Travelers Pack is just awesome!

It’s simply divine. Perfection, I’d say.

Here’s what Melanie has to say:

I am so excited to be guest designer for Kerri! I love the crisp clean designs of Kerri’s stamps and collections, it was a delight to be working with her products. I had the pleasure of creating two spreads using the By The Numbers and Oh Yeah stamp sets along with the Splendid Traveler’s Pack collection. What a treat it was to work with such beautifully designed products!!!

The inspiration for this Around Here TN spread was most definitely the By The Numbers stamp set. As soon I started planning my projects I knew I had to incorporate the numbers stamps as the focal point. I opted to create a pattern print using the number stamp, I wanted the stamps to be a bit distress to reflect the mood of the picture, therefore I opted for a very muted grey ink. I paired this with the labels from the Splendid collection. Love the rustic feel of this spread.


Truly. A wonderful TN spread! And I love how she ‘distressed’ the numbers too.

Be sure to check back tomorrow when we share another piece of goodness from Miss Melanie! I know, the suspense is gonna kill us. Patience, my friends.  :)
