Hi there! Nathalie with you today bringing you a few ideas on how to put those 3x8 bookmarks (available in the Digital Files section of the CTK shop) to work with this month's Skyland kits. What can i say, I love adding variety to my Traveler's Notebooks, and having the option of creating hybrid entries for my journal is not only fun, but also a fast way to put a TN layout together.
The 3x8 cards are designed to work on all your memory documenting. Since my prefered way of daily memory keeping is a TN, I want to show a quick video on how easy it is to work with the cards on Photoshop, so here we go:
Isn't that easy? But don't be discouraged if you don't have access to Photoshop, you can still work with the digital cards by printing them and adding them to your projects. In fact, i have created 2 projects one with a hybrid option, and the next just using a print from the digital files.
The first project features a card that was designed on Photoshop, as seen on the video. Once the page was printed, i trimmed a bit off the edges and framed it with the Heidi Swapp paper (it has a very soft rose design on it), and added a small floral ephemera piece at the bottom of the page.
The same paper was used to back the picture, which was then mounted on the Pinkfresh Studio paper that matches the floral cluster element at the bottom of the hybrid page, all these papers are included in the Skyland Scrapbook kit. To complete the page, I added a few stamped sentiments using the Conversation Starter set and a few drops of gold ink. This entry took no time to put together!
Now, this entry was created by printing the 3x8 bookmark cards without using Photoshop. First I added my journal on the card using a typewriter, and glued it to one side of the TN entry. The photo strip was then backed with the matching paper from this month's Skyland PL kit, and glued to the opposite side of the layout.
Once again, since the card is holding the journal lines, and has a title built in, I chose to only add a few more embellishments. This month's cut apart element page (available for free at the Citrus Twist Kits shop) is amazing!, so i combined a few of the cut aparts with pieces from the Skyland PL kit. Once again i added a few stamped sentiments using the Conversation Starter stamp set (Check this stamp set out, it is amazing, and filled with so many possibilities!) to complete the page.
Well that is for me for today! Do not forget to check all the new July kits, and while you are at the shop also add a few of the CTK digital files to your cart; these are great options to stretch your kits, and add variety to your memory keeping.
Remember to share your projects using CTK products and digital files in our Facebook Fan page or in social media (please tag @citrustwist kits). I am looking forward to seeing what you create this month.
