Three to inspire with Melanie

Hey crafty friends, Melanie here with another three to inspire post for you. 
Here are my three things to inspire 
  1. tear paper
  2. use labels
  3. use alphas
For my layout I used the Main Kit only and I really love the patterned paper in the kit this month. So I made strips of different papers by tearing them and put them on top of my white background. For more texture I sewed along each strip with my sewing machine.

I saved a WhatsApp conversation we had with our niece about a package we had sent to her about 8 weeks ago and she finally received. We were all so very happy about it. 

I printed it out, cut it apart and put it on top of the labels from the Heidi Swapp sticker sheet. For more dimension I used foam adhesive to glue the labels on my paper.

I also used a label for my journaling and placed it on the bottom of my page along with some paper strips.

My title went between the top and bottom stripes and I used the wonderful puffy alphas from the kit. I  love the colored ones too, but for this page I went with the golden ones because there is so much pattern and color going on already.

I hope I inspired you to make a page by using my three to inspire. Don't forget to share your creations in our Facebook Group and on Instagram using the hashtag #citrustwistkits.

Until next time,  have fun creating,

  1. Good evening! !
    It is 9:30 PM on 30th Japan time now.
    It is the custom of Japan's year end.
    In the year end, we say “Yoi otoshi wo” to each other wishing for the coming
    year to be pleasurable.
    The New Year season is the most significant season for the Japanese.
    All the Christmas décor is switched to the New Year’s in a blink.
    Major New Year icons are the pine tree, bamboo, plums and so on. All of them are symbols of good fortune and longevity.
