Skyland Scrapbooking with Amanda!

Hi Citrus Twist Friends & Fans! 

Amanda here, & I am super-dee-duper excited to be posting my first official layouts with our gorgeous kits! For today's post I'm sharing the Skyland Scrapbook Kit love!
This kit is just magical! So many beautiful papers and embellishments, with sooooo many creative possibilities!

I have created two very clean & fresh designs - here's the first,
"Present & in Awe"


Sigh! Isn't this divine?!! 
I just LOVE our printable Digital Files, and am determined to feature them each month - they're SO good! I've combined the Skyland Journaling Cards & free Cut Aparts with the white cardstock and Pinkfresh Studio: Simple & Sweet Die Cuts with Golf Foil, Epoxy Stickers and Fabric Die Cuts. Did I mention that I love me some Pinkfresh Studio?! The Simple & Sweet line is so soft and dreamy, and the pastel tones partner perfectly with our Skyland Digital Files. 


I love layering patterns and colors, and with our awesome Digital Files, you can print and cut as many layers, tabs and die cuts as you need! 
I matte my photo onto an array of Skyland Journaling Cards, and Cut Aparts, and then embellish my photograph with all those pretty blooms! For added impact, I mount my title onto foam, and position it over the base of my sweet girl's picture. 


Both the top and base of my layout are embellished with Skyland Cut Aparts and Die Cut Ephemera tags, and tabs. 


The Pinkfresh Studio Fabric Die Cuts are SO cool, that I just have to include one on my layout, as well as a couple of the Epoxy Stickers for good measure! Love it! 
Simple & Sweet indeed! 

Next up is an 8.5 x 11" masculine layout, 
"Seek Out The Joy"


Let's hear it for the boys!!!
What a crisp, clean and super fun page for the special guys in my life! I should add that I have included the Webster's Pages: Pretty Plaid paper from this month's Pattern Paper Play kit.
That plaid woodgrain paper is just divine, and I could easily use another 10 sheets of it!
Vintage book paper, on the other hand,  isn't something I feature in my creating that often. So I set myself a challenge to use it in my layouts this month. I am so glad I did! The 'raw' and somewhat edgy look of this ledger paper is just awesome for embellishing a masculine layout with! And yes, I may have to get back on the vintage band wagon - I totally loved this!


To maintain the masculinity of this page, I drew on the black embellishments from the Pinkfresh Studio Die Cuts & Epoxy Stickers, as well as the chambray Fabric Die Cuts. Bold, strong and striking adornments for my two boys!


I also embellish with gold foil accents throughout my page, including those Chipboard Alpha Stickers from Echo Park's Imagine That collection.


Yes, this! Seek Out The Joy!!! 
Such a wonderful everyday moment to document. 

And there you have it! Two very different layouts from our July Skyland Scrapbook Kit. 
I hope I have inspired you to get creating with yours!
