Documenting The Little Moments with Nathalie

Hello friends!
Nathalie with you today to show you how versatile the new Malibu kits are.  This month's kits are bold, colorful and a bit tropical, but they can easily be used to document those everyday moments easily.

By now you all know that i love to combine cut files and mixed media, so i took advantage of  one of this month's free cut files (there are quite a few free digitals being added to the CTK shop monthly!!)

I used the Floral Drops cut file to create the background of this page.  I simply cut it twice from white cardstock, and pretty much sandwiched patterned paper in between the two cut outs.  This just adds a bit of movement to the florals, and enhances all the patterns in this month's Malibu scrapbook and Patterned Paper kit.

Well, for the mixed media, i wanted to create a colorful background where the florals will sit, so I played with some Distress Oxides to create a watercolor background in the colors of  the papers in the kit.  I based the colors of the papers used  -when backing the cut out- on their placement on the background.

A bit of foam adhesive just adds some extra dimension to the florals, and makes them bring life to the page; Which is perfect for this  regular/eveyday picture of my husband and i (we were sitting on the carpet with our baby, so i reached for the phone and snapped a few selfies) .

I used a combination of the ephemera and stickers (from the  main kit)  with the CTK monthly printable and some of the embellishments to form clusters and add a title to the page.

I love how easy it was to put life into an ordinary picture of us (trust me this is us every day!) using this month's kits.  The following video will give you a  more in depth look at how the page came together:

That is all for me today, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions on how the page came together, and stop by the Citrus Twist Kits website to check the kits and the digitals.  I am looking forward to seeing what you all make with these kits!
