Life Crafted with Kira


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. 


Thanks for stopping by!

xo, Kira 



  1. Where did the pixie die cut come from? Are there coordinating embellishments? Are they too Citrus Twist?

    1. The pixie was from the game my kids are playing in the photo. It’s not from the kits.
