3 To Inspire with Tara

Hello lovelies! Today it's Tara here on the blog sharing this week's installation of:
I love, love, LOVE 3 To Inspire because it helps give me direction when I am stuck in a rut and I just love recipe challenges. I hope you join me this week and get crafting! Don't forget to play along for your chance to win some happy mail - just read through the end. Here are your prompts:

  1. use memorabilia
  2. use word stickers/thickers
  3. add in handwritten journaling

Here is the pocket page I created using August's "Kaleidoscope" Pocket Life and Sprinkles kits:

I am loving all the fun goodies found in the kits this month!!! I used Amy Tangerine's "hello" from the 'Oh Happy Life' sticker book to add a subtle but much needed extra on my photo by the hot springs. Here is a closer look.
I thought it would be so fun to use the Pocket Life stamp phrase "daily grind" and write "weekend" over it. And those acetate hearts from from Crate Paper's 'Cute Girl' line...I can't get enough of them!!

Sometimes I find myself using more photos or fun embellishments and journaling cards instead of documenting the stories. I really wanted to focus on that and I encourage everyone to embrace their handwriting! I know it can sometimes be intimidating, but just have a go at it.

And finally, here is where I used memorabilia. I used one of the ticket stubs from visiting the Roman Baths and turned it to show the backside. I then used it as a layering piece under our family photo.
I added more little layers from the patterned paper split pack. I just love them so much!

Ok, now it's your turn. Create something fun using these three prompts for a chance to win some happy mail. Share your creations in our Gallery and/or Facebook Forum . Don't forget to label it with the date, 08/06 too and enter by the 13th of August. You can also enter on Instagram by tagging @citrustwistkits.

Thank you for stopping by and we can't wait to see what you create!

Have a wonderful weekend,
Xxo, Tara
