Maggie Holmes Design Team : Sweet Memories

 Hello lovely friends! I'd like to share with you a layout that I created. Photo plays a huge part in my creative process. I always have the photo first and next I will gather supplies to create around it. Let me walk you thru with my creative process on this layout. 

 In this photo, you can see these elements - black & white, stripes, pink, floral + a hint of green. Such perfect elements to use Confetti collection with this adorable photo of my daughter and her new friend she found in the hospital. After identifying all the elements, I started to gather the papers & embellishments. Creating with a collection certainly save me a lot of time. 

For the design, I wanted it to be diagonal on one end. What I did was to layer the papers onto each other. Once I am happy with that, I placed the photo in the middle and added the pretty embellishments around the photo. And finished it with a cute title and journaling. 



Here are some close-up shots: 


I really enjoyed creating with Maggie Holmes Confetti collection & hope that it will inspire you to start creating too!

Happy crafting!

Citrus Twist Kits : 3 to Inspire


3-To-Inspire

Hi, I'm sharing my first "3 to Inspire" challenge. You can find this challenge at Citrus Twist Kits blog 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 3 prompts this week are:


  • Use cirlces

  • Use enamel dots

  • Use stickers (it can be alpha / numbers or etc)


  •  photo youarecute_zpsbp2uburj.jpg

    With my layout, I was inspired by the wood veneer stickers by WRMK that you can find in the May Add-On kit. Basically that's how I decided to go circle all over my layout. 

    TIPs > I wanted to use up the Elle's Studio alpha stickers too, so what I did was to arrange them onto a white card stock and punch them out with my 2" circle punch. 





    Now it's your turn! Use the three prompts to create your own projects and share them with us in the gallery and/or in our Facebook Forum. You can also upload to Instagram and tag us @citrustwistkits. Look forward to seeing your takes on this challenge.  

    Thanks for swinging by!

If you arrived here from Jennifer's blog, you are certainly in the right place too! 

    Today, I would like to share with you a card I created with the May kit. 

    Absolutely adore everything about this kit especially the copper-orangey colours that I decided to create a monochromatic coloured card! I started with the washi tape and paste them from the top to the bottom of the card to create my own "patterned paper". Then I layered the rest of the elements onto the card in the middle. I also used a vellum to enhance my card by stamping the word everyday with staz-on permanent ink. 

    The blog hop giveaway for this round is May Embellishment kit. Isn't it awesome?

    Maggie Holmes Design Team : Happy Birthday Katelynn

    Hello! I'm sharing another layout using the Confetti collection with you today! Yes, another birthday layout for my baby girl who celebrated her birthday last January. Absolutely love the fact that my daughter's dress in the photo matched the collection so well! The colours are so pretty too.

    I started of this layout with this amazing star vellum. 


    The glitters on the ephemeras are to die for. They are so sparkly & classy and give that instant fun to my layout.

    Citrus Twist Kits : Easter 2015 Mini Album

    Hello there! I'm here to share with you what I have created with the Citrus Twist Kits May 2015 "Tropical Zest" Add-On kit. Such a beautiful kit!

      CTK_Addon_1.jpg

    Mini albums are really fun to create especially when you have a bunch of photos of the same event. Each page doesn't need to be too complicated. In mine, I kept it simple and each page has a similar composition with the previous page.



    I wanted to document Easter 2015 for my daughter as it was her first time celebrating in school with her friends.  I used everything in the kit except for the gold polkadot washi tape & the yellow arrow on the cover :)
