3 to inspire with Diane

Hi everyone, I'm here with another 3-to-inspire challenge for you! I love these challenges as a way to kick-start your creativity (and we all need a little help with that from time to time!). 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.

Your prompts this week are:
  1. Use up your scrappy left-overs
  2. Use something puffy 
  3. Use a photo of YOURSELF!
Here’s my take on this challenge ...

After cutting down the 6x6 papers in the Pocket Life kit to 4x6 or 3x4, I'm usually left with a lot of 2 inch wide strips. So I cut them into squares and stitched them into a grid pattern on some card stock with my sewing machine. Then all I needed to do was add a selfie (no shame), some embellishing, ephemera and layers, then create my title using the Citrus Twist Kit alpha stamp and some puffy alphas. I couldn't help but add a few extra puffy stickers from the Sprinkles kit for good measure!

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 can do!

February KIts

Hello! Michelle here with you today to share a few of my projects using this month's kits! February's kits are packed with brand new releases from my favorite manufacturers and I had loads of fun creating my projects.

My first project that I am sharing is a 9x12 layout that I created using the Main Scrapbook Kit only:

Underneath my usual paper layers, I placed a die cut that I cut using my Silhouette. This was a simple way to add more interest without overwhelming the colorful photo of my daughter. The blues, greens, and pinks were a fave color combo this month and I used it throughout all of my projects.

For my second layout, I jumped outside my comfort zone and chose to use the cool black and white exclusive patterned paper as my background:

As  I was finishing up this smaller 6x8 layout, I found that I wanted to add a little bit more blue to the page. My solution was to cut a little bit of the top of the layout off and layer a piece of white cardstock underneath it. I then tucked a blue die cut from the Pocket Life Kit underneath the patterned paper and stitched everything down.

Working with these kits this month has been a lot fun and I want to invite you to stop by the Gallery to see what the rest of the Design Team made with the February's Kits!

Living a Life of Worship | February Grace Box

Hello lovelies - it's Tara here today and I'm so thrilled to be working with the February GraceBox this month in my journaling bible.

Sundays are almost always days we spend going to church, but this past Sunday we ended up home and watched a sermon online. I was so inspired by the verses in this sermon, Romans 12: 1-2 and how deep two simple verses from the bible can speak into my heart.

Here is a look at the finished journal entry:

The stamps this month worked perfectly. I was reminded of how butterflies don't start off beautiful - but change into the creatures they are after waiting patiently. I want to be transformed and remember to pray daily for the Holy Spirit's help and guidance.

Isn't that little heart clip from Illustrated Faith so cute??

I used the Citrus Twist Alpha stamp on a cut out label to add "RENEW". I love the flower stickers in the kit too and they added a pop of color to my journaling. 

I used a couple Tim Holtz distress ink pads on packaging with some water to create the background. I also added a few things on my heart, a little prayer as well, and used my roller date stamp. I wrote in the dotted background stamp from the GraceBox v6 stamp (sold out).

I hope you enjoyed a little peek into my journaling bible today and how God is working in me. Have a wonderful day!

Be blessed! Xxo - Tara

In My Studio With Zinnia

Hello, It's Zinnia here. 
Today I wanted to share with you a little tour into the place where i create, get inspired and called it "my studio". To be honest, "my studio" is very small and only a small part of it. I hope you don't mind that! I have a small table in my bed room which allows me to craft when I wake up and craft before I sleep :P 

Let me show you some photos of my little space! 

On my desk, I always have my Canon Selphy + Instax Share Printer to help me print out my photos on the go whenever i get inspired to create! Of course, this huge box from citrus twist kit for me to work on my projects. 
So here's my traveler's notebook spread I've done using Citrus Twist Kit Feb Pocket Life Kit. 

I have a drawer beside my Muji acyclic block. I used it to store my craft and planner essentials. They are my stamps pad, sticky memo as well as decoration tapes (a must for planner girls). 

Moving on....

As you see in the first picture, there's alot of mini pot on my Muji acyclic block. These are all my lovely collections from Daiso. I used it to store my paper clips, crayon pens and washi tapes. They are just so adorable right? My mother once says my desk looks like Zoo! (oops.. HAHAHA!)

I used this mini box to store all my daily essential which includes: pencil, water-colour brush, double tape, ink stamp, adhesive, scissors and....many more... 

At the right side of my table, I have a raskog cart from Ikea that I got it last year. It store all my (again) essentials!

I have my paper cutter, wet tissues, photo paper and I don't know what's inside the bin.. 

Oh! I have my roller stamps and distress stain underneath the wet tissues! 

Second part of my raskog cart are my sticker books, screw punch, sprays, and water-colour essentials!

The last part of my raskog cart are some mini boxes that stored all my punches and emphera! 

Yep. This is it... "my studio". I hope you enjoy this post!

Thanks for dropping by and have a nice day!
