I have been busy as a bee!


I know that I haven't posted since the announcement but I have been creating and writing tutorials for Scrapbookcircle for the last month. It was so exciting to get the kit and go through all the different elements of it and chalk out ideas for the assignments and then create. I made 5 beautiful projects  - (4 layouts and one minibook) with the April kits from Scrapbookcircle. The Main kit for the month of April is called One Fine Day and the add on kit that I used is called Stay Cool. You can see all my projects on the Scrapbookcircle website. Also stay tuned for some detailed explanation about each of these projects on the blog during the month. I will keep you updated on when the post goes live.

I am sharing one of my projects here today. I made this layout with a photo of Surya and his friends. I love the photo and I really didn't find the need to do length journaling. The photo says it all. I love that it captures them being in their element.




For this layout I used both sides of one patterned paper that you see above. It is from the Carpe Diem collection from simple stories. I loved the white script on the black background and loved the angle. I totally wanted to highlight that and cut along the angle of the text and also placed my photo along that angle. The other side the paper had hand painted watercolor circles. I loved the colors of these circles and how beautiful they looked with black. So I fussy cut the circles and glued them on the white background. I used the corrugated cardstock from fancy pants to highlight the angle of the text.
The chipboard word 'together' is from a sticker sheet from Bella Blvd. It comes in white and you can paint it. I painted it with acrylic paint and mists to match the water colored circles. Finally I used the absolutely adorable orange sequin puffs from PinkFreshStudio to add a little more interest. Here is my final layout:


When a kit is put together so nicely it is so easy to create. I love working with kits. 
Have a wonderful day!

Projects for Citrus Twist Kits

I was presented the opportunity to guest design for citrus twist kits for the month of February. I was jumping up and down with joy when I was asked. It made me so very happy. I wanted to share all the layouts I made with the beautiful products in this kit. The colors, patterns and embellishments are perfect. The best part is that it includes the very latest products released at CHA in December - Maggie Holmes Bloom, Maggie Holmes Shine and C'est La Vie from Pink Paisley. The kit also includes citrus twist kits exclusives like the cork circles and clouds, a cut apart phrase sheet and word stickers from pinkFreshStudio for citrus twist kits. Here are my layouts:







I made 5 layouts with the Febraury Main Scrapbook Kit. I still have papers and stickers left. I thoroughly enjoyed making every single layout. I thank Citrus Twist Kits for giving me this wonderful opportunity.
Have a wonderful day!
