Let's Get Digital with Kira
Hey Citrus Twist fans! It's Kira and I am back with another 8.5x11 layout using a mix of the December kits.
Have you checked out the exclusive cut files for the month? I was immediately drawn towards the poinsettia cut file. I knew it would be perfect for this conversation my son and I had about Santa.
I started by cutting the cut file fairly large from white cardstock. When I cut it, I thought I might cut up the cut file slightly, but didn't have much of a plan until I actually got it cut out. I backed it with papers from the main kit and the pocket life kit. After it was backed, I decided to cut some of the leaves and other decorative elements off, leaving just the large poinsettia.
The photo I used for this page is a filtered selfie of my son and I, since the "story" on this page is a conversation him and I had as Christmas was approaching. I backed the photo with the "Confetti" paper included in the add on kit. Then I tucked a couple of tabs from the PL die cut pack on top of the photo.
I decided to use the wood grain side of the "Harrison" paper (included in the main kit) as my background. I placed my poinsettia in the lower left corner and sort of nestled my photo into the flower. I used some of the leaves I had cut from the cut file, underneath my photo.
The title was perfect for this story! I used the word "believe" from the Shimelle thickers included in the add-on kit. I finished off the layout with some embellishment clusters in the upper left and bottom right clusters. I added some typed journaling strips and black splatters and called the page done.
I can't wait to see how you plan to use the cut files this month!
