Hello December

December is here, and I have some super exciting news to share – I am the guest Designer at Citrus Twist Kits this month! They sent me the scrapbooking kit (“Wonder”) and I was amazed at how packed it is!

The kit comes with 6 patterned papers (Crate Paper, Basic Gray, Seven Paper), 2 pieces of cardstock (white and cream), a 12×12 sheet of stickers (Maggie Holmes Shine, Crate Paper), a set of puffy gold stickers (love!! Pink Paislee), wood veneer plus signs, an exclusive stamp set, a set of 3″x3″ die cuts (Seven Paper), gold doilies, an acrylic heart shape, embroidering thread, a sheet of phrases and labels, and the most gorgeous turquoise puffy alpha (Amy Tangerine).
I haven’t had as much time to play with the kit as I would have liked (mostly for a good reason – my mom came to visit for ten days, and left yesterday – but also having to deal with a work emergency that is never-ending – ugh!). So far I have made 3 layouts and a mini album, but I have lots of items left to make more, so I am not done with this kit yet! 🙂
The first page I made is a Christmas page – even though this kit doesn’t have a holiday theme, it works great for holiday pages. As soon as I saw that tree paper by Basic Grey I have wanted to use it for a Christmas page, so that’s what I did.
I had so much fun embellishing the tree with wood veneer and stickers! This page is up on the Citrus Twist blog if you want to check it out, read a bit about me, and take a peek at my craft space.
My next project is based on a sketch that will be up on the Citrus Twist blog later this month. I will be posting the page here once that goes live; in the meantime here’s a detail shot:
I thought the geometric patterns of the paper matched my shirt really well! 🙂
Another page will also be up on the blog later this month with a step-by-step tutorial – here’s a close up shot for now.
So look for these pages to be posted here in the next few weeks, along with the mini album I made.
