Hey friends! It's Marsha here today, and I'm sharing a Life Crafted album layout using some of the new products available in the shop this month.
Here's a look at the spread:
Hello friends, it's Elizabeth. I'm DELIGHTED to share some more pages in my "ABC Christmas" Life Crafted Album. As a reminder, I'm following a SIMPLE design formula to document some of my family's FAVORITE holiday traditions.
For the left-hand page, I enlarged a photo to 4" x 8.25" to slip inside the page protector. To finish, I created an embellishment cluster using a die-cut, chipboard circle and and puffy star sticker. I chose this chipboard circle because the color AND sentiment complimented the sentiment on the journal card on the opposite page.
For the top right-hand page, I used a stamp from my stash, the red puffy alphabet sticker and my computer to create my title. To finish, I added another die-cut and puffy sticker. "Ho ho ho" and the mug of hot chocolate were the PERFECT combination for this story.
For the bottom right-hand page, I chose a 3 x 4 journal card to hold my WORDS. At the top, I stapled another cute, colorful die-cut.
I hope these pages provided some INSPIRATION. I'll be back later this month to share more ideas. HAPPY crafting. XO, Elizabeth
Hey there, Citrus Twist fans! Shannon here with a fun pocket page to share using the new December 2020 kit release along with some new stamps. The kit release is products that are typically used for traditional scrapbooking but I'm going to show you how you can use it in your pocket pages too.
Since I was using such a variety of products on the page, I decided to focus on visual triangles and repeated elements throughout my page. This helps bring some cohesiveness to the page. If you look at the photo above, you can see that I used the heart label outline from the Get Messy stamp set along with phrases from that set and the Currently stamp set repeatedly. I used a bold black ink and placed them in a triangle on my page to guide the eye. Let's take a closer look at a few others.
I used gold accents repeatedly throughout my page. In the top middle of my page, I arranged them in a triangle spanning two journaling cards. That definitely pulls the eye up. But I also tucked two more delicate gold accents into my 4x6 journaling card at the bottom. The purpose of this was to both break up the black and white accents on that card and to carry the gold throughout more of the page.
Next, I had some fun incorporating tags into the page. Since this is on the front side of my pocket page I had the freedom to let items stick up out of the pockets. I used traditional tabs on the top and bottom cards. Then, on the striped journaling card, I made my own tab by letting the top circle stick up over the top of the card. And those circle? You guessed it - repeated elements.
Finally, I used two subtle accents to create visual triangles - enamel dots and word stickers. My page was feeling very...pink. I needed to add some color and these enamel dots were the perfect way to do just that! I'm also a sucker for word stickers so I had to add a few. Those create a triangle as well. Although both of these are subtle, they still do their job of guiding the eye around the page.
I hope I've inspired you to try using the December kit in your pockets by creating your own journaling cards. I can't wait to see what you create!
Hello Citrus Twist friends! I am so happy to be back again sharing another set of pages using the Sparkle and Joy kit!
I started these pages with a large photo of our tree. If you check the tree you will see that I added Sparkle and Joy puffy sticker ornaments to further decorate the tree and two of the card stock stickers! This photo is the same size as one of the Life Crafted page protectors.
I had to use the gorgeous journal card that was perfect for Christmas Eve along with a photo in one of the 2 - 3x4 inserts.
When you turn the page you arrive at Christmas Day. I cut one of the 6x8 adorable reindeer papers into a 3x4 card for a lovely pop of red. I cut a snowflake and a round circle from white card stock and added the puffy “25” and a gold star for a date card. The card below is is the back of the Christmas Eve card and will hold journaling. The next side is an interactive page I made for the 25th. I used a 6x8 Sparkle and Joy paper as the base, and cut two thin strips of red paper to use as ribbon. I topped the “gift” with the red bow die cut and two die cut tags. The gift page is adhered to a base page in the album and opens from left to right.
Love the super cute die cuts!
The gift box opens as a simple flap.
Inside I added gift photos from Christmas morning, embellished with die cuts and stickers! I love how it turned out!
Thank you so much for joining me here today! Cheers to a happy December and Merry Christmas to you!
I had fun filling the pockets with cut down cards from November's kit and plenty of digital ephemera from the Cutapart Elements. I used the Traveler's Notebook stamp and Legendary stamp together around this circle diecut as they both had the same phrase. Perfect for my subject matter!
For my journaling, I altered one of the digital cards in Photoshop to fit the 3-Pocket Instax Protector size.
Thanks for joining me on the blog today!
Hope you will be inspired to create yours ad have fun.
Hey everyone! It's Alena with layout for Sunday Sketch.
Here's a look at the sketch this week:
And here's what I came up with using the beautiful Legendary Add-On Kit and Digitals.
First I layered pieces of patterned paper and some die-cuts.
The main elements on my layout, besides photos, is cut file. I added some purple paint to make the cut file more visible.
Small accents were also added using machine stitching.
Well, then it is time for you be inspired by the sketch to create a page of your own. Remember to share your creations with us on the Citrus Twist Kits Friends page on Facebook or by using #CTK, @Citrustwistkits on social media. I cannot wait to see what you create with this sketch.
