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!

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!

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.

Sunday Sketch Challenge

Hi there! It's Trina here today with your weekly challenge. Are you ready for your Sunday scrapbooking sketch? This week we have a 12" x 12" sketch for you that I've converted to an 8.5" x 11" layout.

Here is your sketch:

I've done a loose representation of this sketch with my focus on the 3 stacked photos and the small gathering of title + embellishments. I worked with both the June 2017 Boardwalk Pocket Life kit and Scrapbooking kit.

I think I had the most fun with the Title/Journaling spot in the lower right of the sketch. To type on the Elle's Studio Live Laugh Love Bits & Pieces piece I adhered it with light-tack tape runner to a piece of paper so I could roll it into my typewriter. Here is a close-up:

Now it's your turn! 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 (6/18) in the title, and you may just win a $5 gift certificate to the CTK shop.

I can't wait to see your take on this sketch.

3-to Inspire with Mira

Hello! It's Mira Jurecka with 3-to Inspire challenge! 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 or a PL spread and remember that you'll want to include all 3 prompts on your project.

Here's my inspiration - I took some old pictures from our honeymoon in Rome and created two pocket pages and my very first Traveller's Notebook layout:

And prompts for this week are:

1. Create really HUGE title
2. Mix two different fonts in this title
3. Use at least one arrow and one heart in Your work

And here are my pages and the prompts in details:

June Sprinkles Kit had those big colorful letters included, so it was easy to create huge titles. I mixed these letters with alpha stickers and stamps from Pocket Life Kit (added a piece of my handwritting too) so the titles are a bit more interesting than usually.

June "Boardwalk" Pocket Life Kit was full of hearts and arrows, so I used them in many configurations. But if You happen to work with the kit that has no arrows or hearts inside, remember that You can always doodle them on Your page to meet the third prompt, okay?

What do You think about mixing fonts? Do You like this idea? What about arrows and hearts? My pages are always full of hearts, since they are mostly about my family :)What about Yours?


Now, it's your turn! Use the three prompts to create your own projects and share them with us in the CTK Gallery and/or on our Facebook Fan Page by Saturday, June 25th, for a chance to win. You can also upload to Instagram and tag us @citrustwistkits. Have fun!
