Hello crafty friends! Erica here with a pocket page in my 2020 album for the weekly Pocket Page Challenge.
Week 32 was a big one for my family. We moved back into our house from a rental and were overwhelmed with boxes! There were plenty of cute die cuts and cards that related to travel and journey in the September kit that inspired this page.
This was actually our second, larger moving day. Round one (the week before) was everything from the rental house and round two was everything from storage. I used the Soft Mint Puffy Alphas for this title and paired it with a couple of adorable tickets from the ephemera pack.
I worked with a few digital elements on this layout. I added my journaling digitally since I had a lot to say and wasn't sure it would fit! I also grabbed the 'Where To Begin' element from one of the Travelers Notebook Basics papers to print out separately and use as a die cut.
To end our big moving day we were greeted with the most amazing sunset. I just knew this was the universe's way of saying good luck with unpacking! I grabbed some mini tile alphas and added them straight onto the photo.
Well, then it is time for you be inspired by the sketch to create a page of your own. Remember to share your creations with us on the Citrus Twist Kits Friends page on Facebook or by using #CTK, @Citrustwistkits on social media. I cannot wait to see what you create with this sketch.
Hello & happy weekend! I'm excited to share todays 3-to-Inspire challenge with you. For my 3 supplies I reached for the great puffy stickers, the fabric tags and the kit stamp! The result is a layout I am totally in love with.
I printed my photos with a large amount of white space at the top or bottom, and then I stamped a small sentiment on each one.
I love how the white space and the black stamping easily brought the whole spread together. And the hearts and fabric tags added just enough embellishment that the spread doesn't feel bare.
I hope this simple to execute spread inspires you to get stamping this weekend!
Hey there! It's Kira and I am back with another layout in my Life Crafted album. Today I am using all digital products (besides some enamel dots that I pulled in for some additional texture. Here's a look at my layout:
I am currently in the process of doing an entire album dedicated to my son's sixth birthday party. He chose a Harry Potter theme and I went all out to fulfill his request. So after all my hard work, I wanted to document every aspect of the party. Today I am scrapbooking a page about one of the activities the boys did: catching pixies!
I was inspired by a bullet journaling page I saw on Pinterest and wanted to translate it to a fun interactive page. So I cut some small strips of patterned paper down to 1"x1.75", scored them at 1/4" from the top and stitched them to the white background paper. This created a fun interactive flip up to put my journaling.
On a few of the pieces of paper, I embellished with die cuts and enamel dots of coordinating colors.
Then I typed up my journaling to adhere underneath each of the flip ups. Since this page has interactive elements, I didn't want it to be hidden behind a page protector, so to add it to my album, I used an adhesive page strip instead.
On the reverse page, I liked the idea of sticking with the color blocking I had created on the right page. So I cut strips at 1" wide in the same papers and stitched them down on some white cardstock. Then I added embellishments in coordinating colors again.
Finally I added one of the pixies that my kids caught during our Defense Against the Dark Arts lesson.
I love working with the digitals as they give you so much flexibility and it’s so easy to print what you want at home!
I chose a journaling card to use for my story from the physical kit. I wanted to add printed text to the card so I printed the digital version of the card with the text onto printer paper, then adhered the physical journaling card over the top with some washi before inserting it back into my printer’s paper tray. I then hid the digital journaling card in Photoshop so that only the text was visible and printed it again. To finish off this card I added a simple stitched border around the edge.
For my full-sized page I printed one of the papers from “The Best Parts” Traveler’s Notebook Digital Papers set and backed it with more of the same paper that I used for the 3 x 4 inch card earlier. I added the photo to the page and tucked three of the ephemera ticket pieces under the top edge. I used the pretty puffy alphabet stickers from the kit for the title across the top of the photo.
I stamped a phrase from “The Best Parts” stamp set on a yellow cutapart label to go underneath the photo, then I filled in the section at the bottom of the page with the date, a line of printed text and a puffy heart sticker. Stitching was also added around the page.
You can see my process in the video below...
Have you tried using the digital files on any of your projects? If not I hope I’ve inspired you to give them a go. They really are so fun to play with!
