Hi there! This is Rachel Lim from sunny island Singapore – born and raised on this little red dot, I can truly call myself a fun-loving city girl. I’m married to a loving man and mother to two young boys – they are my driving force and motivation to continue to scrapbook ever since I started on my first two layouts back in 2006. I love making mini albums, altered projects and Project Life-ing of course! It’s simply amazing to put different brands of materials together and viola, a priceless creation is born. Being a memory keeper has been very rewarding.
When Trina asked if I’d like to guest design for Citrus Twist Kits, why YES, how could I say no when the kits were so wonderfully put together? I just need to play with them!
Q & A:
1. How long have you been doing Project Life and why did you start?
This is my second year in my Project Life-ing. Being a paparazzi (stalking on my three boys), I believed this is the one effective way to document precious memories. Besides, it really served us well on all those flashbacks when either one of us pulled out the album and started flipping through the pages.
2. How would you describe your PL style?
Clean and simple that comes with a touches of color. I choose to let my photos do the talking, and of course coupled with minimum amount of elements to enhance the overall look of my spread.
3. What scrapbookers have influenced you most?
Everyone, to be honest. Be it a fellow crafter who just started on Project Life or a seasoned scrapbooker, I’m constantly inspired by everyone’s work and picking up useful tips every now and then.
But if I were to pick a few, they have to be Stephanie Bryan, Marcy Penner and Geralyn SY.
4. What is your favorite thing about kit clubs?
It is to create with what comes in the treasure box. No time wasted on digging through my stash and doing the matching game (which can be quite frustrating at time!).
5. What are your 5 favorite scrapbooking items you can't live without?
#1 – Scissors, #2 – Adhesive tape/glue, #3– Washi tape, #4 – Pattern paper, #5 – Alphabet stickers.
6. How would you describe the Citrus Twist July PL and PL Embellishment kits and what do you enjoy most about the kits?
Fun! I was smiling throughout the whole time as I went through the kits. They are totally prefect for my forever summer weather here in Singapore! The papers by Simple Stories are my favorite among the lot. And let’s not forget about transparent stickers. They are awesome!
And here is what I had come up with on my week 23 PL spread with Citrus Twist July PL and PL Embellishment kits.
