Hey friends.  Its Ettiene, back with some 6x8 Life Crafted Inspiration using the new Retro Mini Kit and Life Crafted Retro Traveler's Notebook Digital Papers.  I am using the Clementine Life Crafted album this season.  My page tells the story of my new love of tiki cocktails and my new tiki glasses. 

Let's take a look at some of the details of the left page of my spread.  I loved all the retro icons in this ephemera pack and got so excited about the tiki lounge one. I built my page around this piece of ephemera.  I used the yellow striped digital paper as the foundation for my pages.  I expanded it in photoshop to 7"x8.25" and printed it twice.  With a simple pattern like a stripe this is very easy to do.  I added a piece of the striped paper to each side of my spread for interest.  I decided to notch my text box similarly to how the tiki lounge ephemera is notched.  Its a small detail but I love the way it looks.  

For the right hand side of my layout I repeated the same design as the left.  I like the double use of the word spirit in this layout as we are always in good spirits when drinking a good spirit.  I added some chipboard and flowers as a final touch. 

This layout was able to come together super quickly using the life crafted system. I hope I inspired you to try something similar and if you do make a layout using this kit I would love to see it.
