Be Inspired by Spring Flowers

Hey guys! Kasia here with a bunch of inspiration for you! Spring might be my favorite time of the year- it's so exciting to watch everything around you blowing and exploding with color! For today's post I wanted to focus on spring flowers- they can be so inspiring! They will brighten up every photo- you can play with various colors and shapes of flowers, the possibilities are endless. Try to document this season and take your camera for a walk to the nearby park or market so you can snap some pictures of fresh blooms. And don't forget the flowers on the trees- they are such a sign of spring! The fun idea for spring is also to start your own herb garden at home- capturing how the plants change might be a fun addition to your scrapbooking or Pocket Life spreads :)










Fresh spring flowers.. so beautiful, colorful and inspiring! Have a wonderful Thursday!

6x6 Paper Play with Jen Boumis

Hello everyone! Jen here sharing a layout today highlighting the Lemon Lush paper pad from the April Pocket Life kit. I was itching to scrapbook the photos I took of my children on St. Patrick's Day this year. While the colors in the paper pad this month were not themed in any way, the fresh greens and yellows were a great fit for my photos.

For the design of this layout, I decided to use several patterns and put my circle punches to use. I chose three sizes of punches and made an overlapping line of circles. I then used the CTK packaging twine to hand stitch through the border.

Glittery enamel star accents from the Pocket Life Embellishment kit added a little extra pop.

And one triangle cut of the green text pattern made for an extra large photo corner for my main picture, finished with a CTK label and a Silhouette cut shamrock.

Tuesday Tutorial with Evelyn Pratiwi Yusuf - Playing with Mist

Hey everyone hope you have fantastic Tuesday. Today I’m going to share how to create fast layout under 30 minutes using your mists and Citrus Twist Kit April Main, embellishment kit and add on kit.

I already choose my color combo based on my photo that I’m going to use and choose the right mists that I want to use in this layout. No I’m not going to play with 2 mists but more than that, I’m going to play with 5 mists in the same time.

step by step

This is how I create my mists background. First you have to start splatter the mist one by one. Me start with the golden one by Heidi Swapp and splatter it to the place that I want, start from the middle of the paper to the top and bottom of it. Don’t scare to do it! Once you think you get the perfect result go take another mist and start in the same way. In the picture you will see I choose coral, orange, yellow and mint after I play with the gold one.

Tips is you can splatters the mists with same portion or different portion in each color. Me choose give the different portion in each color, you will see some mint color to make my background more pretty.

The next step after I play with mists is I decorate my photo. Don’t have to dry it or wait to long because the mists will dry faster than you think. To pop up the white card stock I choose to paste in on pattern paper.  Enjoy the details of my layout.

Simple Strategies with Nina

Hello and a HAPPY easter monday to everyone. It´s Nina here today to show you a simple strategy post using the Citrus Twist April Kit plus Embellishment Kit along with watercolors. This time I´m so in love with spring and bright colors, especially yellow is one of my favorite. Therefore I decided to make a page with a yellow focus.
The background is one of the easiest things ever. The only thing you need is the white cardstock (included in the kit) and yellow watercolors. I painted a strip with the yellow color using a lot of water and tipped the cardstock up to let the color flow down. After drying the page is ready for the next step.
For the picture I used one of the frames and set it in the right size behind it. The Amy Tangerine "today tag" fits beautiful in the yellow color scheme.  The butterflies are made with the Big Shot die using white cardstock and the transparency sheet. I layered both cuts together and sewed right in the middle.
 The flowers are stamped with black ink and the April "Being Me" Stamp Add On.

Thank you so much for visiting today. Have a great week everyone....

Saturday Inspiration ~ Extra Projects


Sandy created a minibook with different sized pages using the April Main Kit, Add-On Kit and Embellie Kit. 

 
Hi! Nathalie here! I created this card with the April main kit and embellishment add-on. For this card, I was actually inspired by the scraps on my table after making my last layout. Playing with leftovers, layering them, punching them, is a great way to make cards. The “be fabulous” stamp was the perfect finishing touch! (natural twine from my stash)
 
 
 
“Hi there, here is Amélie and for this extra projects day, I created a card. To do it, I used April Main and Add-Ons kits.
I just played with layering of papers and embellishments.”
