I’m up on the write.click.scrapbook blog today with a mini album project. For the month of March, the team has received kits from different kit clubs and used them to make a mini album. My turn was with the March kit from Citrus Twist, and let me tell you – I had a blast!! I had never used a kit from Citrus Twist before, and when I opened my box I was amazed by the gorgeous combination of product. The colors were right up my alley, and made working on this project an absolute joy!
The wood veneer and stamp for the kit weren’t available yet when they shipped me the kit, so I got a previous add on stamp and some wood veneer arrows instead. The only thing I haven’t used in my album is the black washi tape. In addition to the album featured on the write.click.scrapbook blog, done exclusively with the Citrus Twist kit (plus doily + tags from my stash), I have added some stamping and a couple embellishments in the final version of my album, shown here.
The kit’s pretty colors and embellishments are especially suited for spring, but I had in mind to scrap a winter vacation we did back in 2005, and I thought the kit worked great for it too!
The album is 6″x6″, and I bound it using my Cinch binding machine. One of my favorite things was coloring the letters for the cover. Rather than using the mistable thickers with mists, I painted them with my watercolors.
As you may know, I love color, so I went with a gradation from pink to blue for my title. 🙂
Now, I will walk you through the pages of the album. There are fourteen double spreads, so sit back and relax. 😉
I loved both sides of the Studio Calico Lemon Lush paper I used to mat my photo on the right, so I decided to fold the corners to show both sides. 🙂 I love the pop of color!
I made a photo collage on the left using templates by Designs by Lili to feature a collection of neat sightings from around town. On the right page, I cut a few strips from the Lemon Lush paper and sewed them down with gold thread.
I love the chipboard cameras in the Studio Calico Essentials line!
It was funny to see how few picture of us we took on this trip. Well, what can I say? Our picture taking habits have certainly improved since I became a scrapbooker. 🙂
And that’s it! Thirty seven pictures and one epic trip documented.
Thank you so much to Citrus Twist for this opportunity!
