Hello everyone!
A new month, a new set of stories and memories to document.   This month our Life Crafted Kit: EXPLORE is packed a colorful array  of papers, embellishments and stamps that will help you document all your everyday moments.   The EXPLORE kit has a soft focus on all those adventurous trips and travels (big, small, local or abroad) and the stories they can tell.

September also marks the beginning of a new Creative Team term, and we have a group of designers that have been creating beautiful projects to inspire you.  We are sure you are going to love what they have created.  So who better to answer this question, than our new design team:


The Chipboard Alpha and Puffy Stickers


The puffy stickers!! So cute and easy to use!

 Just ONE favorite?!  Ok, then I will say the puffy stickers, can't get enough of them.  Oh, and those patterned papers of course!  Oops, that's obviously two favorites... lol!

  I can't never get enough of the patterned papers!

My favorite part of the kit is the "Simple Words" stamp set. I can use it OVER and OVER and OVER again for GOOD days, BAD days, FUNNY days and SAD days.

The floral die cuts and grid paper!  Can we have those two things in every kit?  😉

Oh boy, there are so many beautiful things in this kit that is hard to pick a favorite!  But I'll have to go with the cards.   They 're perfect for documenting our adventures! 

   I love the stamp set and the bright colors from the patterned papers! 

  I adore the 6x8 papers!  The patterns are so unique and the floral papers are fabulous!

  The stamps set and chipboard alphabet are my favorites.

 I love the puffy stickers, and all those digital files that i can customize for my pages!

  The physical 6x8 option and the digital LC option of the papers!! You guys think of everything! 

I absolutely love the floral die cuts, the chipboard alphabet and the journaling cards...all gorgeous and can be used for so many projects!

Puffy Stickers and floral die cuts.  I was so pleased to find so many floral dies cuts! 😍


We are so eager to start sharing all these projects with you this month, and we hope to inspire you to  check the EXPLORE Life Crafted kit and all the add ons!

See you all soon!

3-To-Inspire with Anna

Hi dear friends!

Anna here with you today bringing you this week's 3-to-Inspire challenge. I really like this challenge it's just the perfect thing to get your crafty mojo on the road again or if you just want to try something new. This month's Life Crafted Kit, Chasing Rainbows, is amazing as always! Then add those gorgeous CTK cut files on top of that ( some of them subscribers exclusive) and you are home,lol! Lots of  happy colors, gorgeous designs and so versatile which make creating with it super easy. Let's have a look at the prompts I've choosen.

  1. Use puffy stickers.
  2. Use a digital cut file, there's lot's of them in the CTK shop :) 
  3. Use acetate die cuts.

With these prompts (and a few more goodies) my 12x12 layout came up so easily and I had so much fun while creating.
Now it's your turn to dig into your kit's and play along with us in this challenge.

Here's what I came up with, enjoy!

Just take a moment and take in the beauty of this fantastic cut file designed by our own super talented Nathalie. It's the star of my page (as well as my beautiful daughter of course).

These light blue puffy alpha stickers are just adorable. Also I do really like this stamp out of the Life Crafted - This is Life - Oh Happy Day clear stamp set.

These acetate die cuts are so vibrant and beautiful. Here I've backed it with a white cardstoc circle to enhance the color and the text on it.

Here's the other part of the stamp from the Oh Happy Day set, this time I separated them but still if you folow the flow of my sentiment you will see that they kind of belong together.

Hope you have got some inspiration here today! Now it's your turn to dig into you scrappy things and start creating. I can't wait to see what you create using these three prompts. Don't forget to share with us on Instagram @citrustwistkits #citrustwistkits and/or our CTK Fan Page on Facebook.

Until next time! Anna xo

Life Crafted with Marsha

Hey friends!  Marsha here with you today, and I'm sharing another layout in my Life Crafted Album.  I used the August Chasing Rainbows kit, the Traveler's Notebook Digital Papers, and the 2x3 Stamp Add-on to create this spread.

Here's a look at the layout:

To begin my spread, I printed a TN paper to use as my background and adhered it to a piece of white cardstock, sized to fit in the Life Crafted album.  I layered patterned papers behind my photo and used the fun acetate pieces from the kit to embellish around the photo.  The acrylic "Hello" piece was perfect for my title, and I used more acetate pieces and a stamped sentiment to complete the title.

For the other page, I used Page Protector #2 that holds 2- 3x4 cards.  I trimmed a patterned paper from the kit to fit in the pocket and adhered two acetate pieces to the paper.  I used a mini Xyron Sticker Maker to adhere the acetate, and it works perfectly for this.  I then added two more acetate hearts to finish off the card.

For the other pocket, I trimmed down the 3x8 bookmark to 3x4.  I typed my journaling, trimmed it into strips, and added it to the card.  I stamped the date using a roller date stamp, and I stamped a phrase to the bottom of the card using the 2x3 Stamp Add-on.

Thank you for stopping by today!  Please share your projects using this kit with us on the Citrus Twist Kits Fan Page on Facebook.  I can't wait to see what you create!

PL Challenge with Alena

Alena here with  Pocket Life Challenge for you!  In my spread I used the wonderful  Life Crafted "Chasing Rainbows" Kit
In the Life Crafted Kit, as always a lot of bright and beautiful embellishments - all as I love.

This time I suggest adding as many yellow elements as possible to your spreads. It can be yellow embellishments, yellow cards, yellow patterned paper, ink, text, buttons, paper clips... Anything you want.

So, my challenge for you:
Use as much yellow as possible.

Look how I've done it. I like the result!

Yellow color is even present in one of the photos of my son.
