Everyday Documenting with Nathalie

Hi there!

Nathalie with you today with a new new pages using the beautiful Fresh Starts kit and the Life Crafted album.   Are you loving  the new album?!  Honestly, what is not to love about it, i mean it is versatile, compact and a time saver.  So today, i want to give  you a few quick ideas on how to use the kit and the album when documenting every day details.

I love large titles, so I took advantage of the 3x8 card that is included in the Fresh Starts kit to build this simple page about my daughter's 16th birthday picture.

I tool advantage of this month's TN stamp and This is Life stamp to build upon the title.  Since this is  all about my wishes for her, what better way than to add  a few flying wishes - dandelion seeds- to the background.

To keep the clean look of the page, i added my journal to a tag that is hidden behind the picture in a vellum pocket.  A few of the stickers from the kit complete this page.

Love how this turned out, and how fast it is to put together!, but since i am all about everyday documenting in this new format, i went ahead and added a new entry on the following page, this time is all about my son's new haircut (FINALLY!)

Once again i went for a simple but striking look for this page.   I reached for the Spencer Alpha and Outline stamps for this page, as i wanted to create a bold title for the page.

I decided to trim the picture into a circle so that it becomes the focus of the page.    Next it was all about using the large alpha stamps to create the title around the picture.  First i stamped the top word using the bold alpha, and then used the outline alpha to create the next word by stamping them on one of the patterned papers and fussy cutting them.

The beauty of CTK stamps is how flexible they are! so, i used a few sentiments from the add on and TN stamps to complete the circle around picture. Then i added a few extra stickers using foam adhesive -LOVE LOVE LOVE being able to add dimension in this new format-

I love how simple these entries are, and how easy they come together in the Life Crafted album, the following video will give you a more in-depth look on how they came together:

Remember to stop by Citrus Twist Kits to check the kits and the album, soon you will see the new kit (gorgeous one , btw!).  As always if you have questions on how these came together, leave me a comment.
