I am happy to share my guest post from Citrus Twist Kits with you!! I have made couple of projects for them this month, the mini album I made is exclusive to their subscribers, but I am able to share my layout with you! I have included the fun Q&A and some photos of my scrap space!
- When did you start scrapbooking?
I officially started scrapbooking in June of 2017! Over the years I have dabbled occasionally, but I could never really figure it out until then! I had been doing Project Life for a couple of years before I started scrapbooking.
- What is something most people would not know about you?
I suppose most people wouldn’t know that my left arm is held together with screws at the elbow. Five years ago fell and shattered my elbow and the surgeon put it back together the best he could, my arm is permanently bent at an angle. I still think about straightening my arm!
- What are the 3 scrapbooking products you can’t live without?
Foam/Dimensional Adhesive (love me some layers), Busy Bee Scissors (love me some fussy cutting) and White Cardstock for backgrounds!!
- What do you love about the May Life Crafted “Excursions” kit?
I made two projects with the May Scrapbooking Add-On kit; I love how well everything co-ordinates (I tend to be matchy-matchy) and how many products are in the kit! I adore the Life Crafted Albums, and the new page protectors are fabulous!!
- Finish this sentence “If you could see my scrapbooking space now . . . “
Is clean!! I usually clean up in between projects so that I can start with a clean slate when I head down to my craft room. In the middle of projects, it is a disaster!!
For my 2nd project with the May Scrapbook Add-On I made a 12×12 layout featuring the All Heart collection by Crate Paper. I decided to make a painted background inspired. by the gorgeous colors in All Heart.
I added two photos and a chipboard “photo” onto a line with some small clothespins from my stash. I knew I had to keep a good spot for the Heidi Swapp Gold phrase as well!
I decorated the photos with chipboard, puffy stickers and gold hearts from the Heidi Swapp stickers.
Once I was almost done I decided to add a little cluster of embellishments at the bottom of the page where the trail of paint thinned out. The chipboard Happy was the perfect piece to built the small cluster around.
I had a fantastic time guesting for Citrus Twist Kits! I hope you enjoyed my layout!
