Memories

One of the really cool things that you will find in your scrapbook kits, is a fun and exclusive cut apart sheet.  Each month this sheet includes an assortment of tags, labels, shapes, and phrases and today I am going to share one way that I like to use them!


Since purchasing an used manual typewriter six months ago, I have been all about typing my journaling and the cut apart sheet is just perfect for this!  I love being able to quickly load my sheet and type my journaling straight away. 


For today's layouts, I used a total of three labels to type a few details from this day. After cutting them out with a pair of scissors, I was able to play around with their placement until I found the right spot for them. The colors in the cut apart sheet coordinate perfectly with the June Scrapbook Kit.




So how do you all like to use the cut apart sheet? Do you like the labels like me or are the phrases more your thing? I would love to hear your ideas!

Sunday Sketch with Veera

Hi, It's Veera here to share this week's scrapbook sketch with you! This sketch is so much fun, I especially liked the banners on top so I decided to follow the sketch very closely.


For my layout I used a combination of June's main kit and add-on kit. Here's my take:


I wanted to use a wide variety of colors in this layout to create a fun look. The sketch had a lot of white space in it too which balanced the colors nicely. I also chose a neutral picture for this layout so that the colors in the picture wouldn't clash with the different patterns and colors included in this layout.



The chipboard sticker sheet had this lovely banner with the text "I could cuddle you forever". I really wanted to use that but I needed to figure out how to cover the picture of cat in the banner. I layered two tags and the cat was gone!





To play along with this week's challenge, create a layout inspired by the sketch, upload it to the Citrus Twist Kits Gallery with the sketch date (5/21) in the title

3 to Inspire with Diane

Hi everyone, Diane here with another 3-to-inspire challenge for you! You can find this challenge here every Saturday for those who need a little extra creative push to get scrapbooking, to keep scrapbooking or for those who just like a challenge! Your take on this challenge can be a layout, Traveler's Notebook page or a pocket page spread and remember that you'll want to include all 3 prompts on your project.

Your prompts this week are:
  1. Try a smaller format
  2. Use a LARGE title 
  3. Use the multiple embellishments of the same shape.
Here’s my take on this challenge ...


I wasn't sure the vague idea I had in my head was going to work but I REALLY wanted to use the alphas in the June Citrus Twist Kits Sprinkles kit to make a bold title. Luckily they fit perfectly in my Traveler's Notebook!

Then all I had to do was add a few die-cuts from the Pocket Life kit to my photo and as many hearts as I could fit on and my page was all done. So bright and colourful!


And here is the process video of how this layout came together...


Now it's your turn! Use the three prompts to create your own projects and share them with us here in the gallery and/or our Facebook Forum. You can also upload to Instagram, but remember to tag us @citrustwistkits. Looking forward to seeing what you do with this challenge!

June PL with Célina



Hello Girls !
 
How are you ?
 
I'm back to show my June pages, with the beautiful cards from Citrus Boardwalk Kit :)
 




 
 
 
As usual, you will see that journaling takes an important place in my PL.
 
 
Most recently, I reopened my PL 2015 and 2106, and beyond the pictures and the decoration, I loved to re-read my journaling and rediscover the anecdotes throughout the months.
 
 
I could only encourage you to write in your PL, by hand or, like me, at the typewriter, it will leave invaluable memories for the future.
 
 
This is what I appreciate most with the Citrus Kit cards is that it allows us to write our text in a so cute way.
 
 
Place to images :
 
 
 
 




 



 
 
 




 






 
 

 

 

 
See you Girls !

Little Goat - TN layout

Hello there! It's Zinnia here today.

Here's the layout that I arranged without "glue stick-ing" it yet.

Here, I used mini stapler to add some "texture" for the layout. 

Finally, here's the final layout in my TN! 


I used a lot of emphera/embellishment in this layout....... More close-up shots for you...






I hope you enjoyed seeing the pictures and inspired you to create your own layout in your TN too!

Have a great day and thanks for dropping by!

xoxo,
Zinnia.

Tuesday Tutorial with Inkie Quill ~ Floating Embellishment Clusters


What's up scrappy peeeeps?!

I have a easy but effective technique to show you today for Tutorial Tuesday - the mysterious "floating" embellishment cluster.

Make sure you scroll to the bottom of this post to watch the full process video using the June Pocket Life Kit :)



All you need for this tutorial are your 6x6" papers, a few basic punches/dies and some plastic packaging. Easy peasy!


I decided to choose some of my fav punches - a basic 2" (ish) heart, 1" circle, 1" scalloped circle and a teeny tiny heart.

1. Punch several shapes using your punches or dies.

2. Cut out a 3x4" piece of plastic packaging to use as a backing for your floating cluster.

3. Attach one of your clusters to one side of the plastic packaging.

4. Flip over the packaging and mirror the same shapes by creating a second cluster on the reverse side.

5. Decorate with some tiny word stickers or phrases.

6. Carefully slide the plastic piece into your pocket protector, and voila! Floating embellishment!


Scroll down for the full process video below!

Lilith's June Layouts

Hello there everyone. It's Lilith with a new blog post for Citrus Twist. Today I'll be sharing 4 layouts I have created with the June Boardwalk Scrapbook kit, the June Best Day Add-on kit and the Embellishment kit.

On the first layout I used a butterfly origami die cut and chopped the top and bottom strips off to let the pink and purple from the background paper show through. I created a layered cluster to the top with my photo and added another in the opposite bottom corner. To create flow I used some sequins from May's kits.






For layout two the colours are a lot more subtle and I opted for a vertical design but with once again a diagonal flow of the layout which draws the eye towards the photo. I added some leaf die cuts for volume and detail and finished the layout off with some mist splatters.




Layout three is probably my favourite because it is so colourful and it has butterflies on it. I LOVE butterflies. I used the same die cut as the first one. Nothing goes to waste.




For my last project I once again started with a die cut (created by Justnick). I cut out pieces of patterned paper and adhered them behind some of the flowers. Some mist splatters and email dots add the finishing touches.




I hope you pick up some ideas. Have a lovely Monday. And see you soon.
