Larkindesign Blog Hop For Citrus Twist | Dream Big Dreams

Hello Lovelies and welcome to this stop along the Citrus Twist Blog Hop for (Inter)National Scrapbook Day! You have arrived here from Alena’s blog, and be sure to scroll to the bottom to follow along to the next stop! I hope you are able to get creative today and I know you will find tons of inspiration along this blog hop. There are some fun challenges today so be sure to check out the Citrus Twist blog and Facebook group, and don’t forget to comment below to be entered into today’s drawings!

My layout today began with the Citrus Twist cut file that is included in the Subscriber Workshop on the site each month. I was completely smitten with the butterflies and made them a main focus of this page. First I cut them out with just plain white card stock (Close To My Heart) and laid the negative cut over another card stock for spritzing. I have used Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Mint to spray the color.

Once I sprayed the color and lifted the card stock, I realized that a lovely halo of color had formed around the elements of the cut file, so I adhered my cut file over that to allow that color to show behind. I also added bits of stitching using my sewing machine just to add more texture.

I was challenged to use embellishment clusters on my page, so I have created three clusters using elements from the Excursions Life Crafted Kit. At the bottom of my page I used a label from the cut apart sheet, plus word art and a few florals from the Excursions kit. I also stamped a word sentiment from this month’s stamp set directly to the background page. Also notice one of my favorite elements on the page: the stamping around the globe!

A second embellishment cluster is located around my photo. This is a photo from last year of our four children hanging out in downtown Kernersville, NC (our hometown). I added layers of patterned paper around the photo and have tucked my embellishments in between those pages. Some of them are popped up with pop dots as well, for more dimension.

The third embellishment cluster is at the top of the layout and forms the complete triangle for good design. It is very simple, with just a tab and a few florals from the ephemera pack.

***Citrus Twist Design Team*** 2019 Pocket Life Weeks 07 and 08 Plus A Layout Share

***Citrus Twist Design Team*** 2019 Pocket Life Weeks 07 and 08

Hello Lovelies! Today I wanted to share with you the projects I have completed for the Citrus Twist Design Team for the month of April! Be sure to scroll to the bottom of the page as well, where you can view my process video for this Project Life layout.

My favorite layouts to create with the Citrus Twist kits are most definitely pocket pages! Pocket pages are my jam, and the April Make It A Venti kit is perfect. My 2019 album is coming along and I loved using this kit for these two weeks in February. The soft colors with pinks and purples and a pop of blue made this layout easy to pull together.

 


I also created a bit in my Life Crafted album this month. I absolutely love this format and love just creating for fun.

The April kit was mostly coffee themed, but still a very versatile kit! I am not a fan of coffee, but I was inspired to think about other mug-related things and that inspired me to create this fun layout about mug cakes! I love these things and we eat them quite a lot in our house, so it was perfect to document here.

I also documented my love of Diet Coke for this layout that was shared on Instagram! I had so much fun creating that mixed background, and notice the vertical embellishments on the left. Such an easy trick!


Theresa Moxley Citrus Twist Design Team Mixed Media Layout

This mixed media layout is perhaps one of my all-time favorites. I was inspired by one of the patterned papers in the kit for my background, and that amazing floral cut file. What an amazing creative month! Be sure to check out the Citrus Twist blog, and watch my process video below to see my pocket page!

Thank you so much for joining me! See you again soon!

***Citrust Twist Design Team*** Layout Share for March 2019

Larkindesign ***Citrus Twist Design Team*** Layout Share March 2019

Hello Lovelies! Today I wanted to share the layouts I have created for the Citrus Twist design team that I created in the month of March. I am loving being on this team and love creating with the beautiful Life Crafted Kits each month! I hope you will scroll all the way down, where I have a bonus process video for you!

I could not wait to begin working in the Life Crafted album. This is a navy travelers notebook sized binder that is perfect for standard size layouts. One of the things I love about it is that even though I love travelers notebook layouts, I really want them to feel more permanent. This album is perfect for that and gives those layouts a beautiful home. These albums will look beautiful on your shelf!

I began my album with an introduction layout about who I am and how I plan to use my album. I created this adorable little pocket that was included in the March Life Crafted Kit, adding a bit of embellishments and a journal card to go inside.

I added a photo of myself and lots of tags, die cuts, and labels along the edge of the photo, all of which tell the story of how this is a new chapter in my life. You can view my blog post for Citrus Twist via the link here.

I also shared a fun bonus layout on my IGTV this month.

I was inspired by the Butterfly cut file that is part of the Subscriber content on the Citrus Twist website. I cut the file using double sided card stock (CTMH) and backed some of the butterflies using a patterned paper from the March kit.

The other butterflies I layered cut outs using the lighter side of the butterflies. On this side the cut file is layered on top of the chevron patterned paper, so the solid card stock allows the butterflies to pop against the pattern.

My last layout (so far!) with the March Life Crafted Kit was a Pocket Life layout I created for October in my 2018 album. You can see the blog post on the Citrus Twist blog here.

I love using all the fun elements of the kit for pocket page layouts, and here are a few highlights.

The alphabet stickers were perfect for creating my date card and adding a working title to a photo! I also had great fun combining stamp sets to form word sentiments that help to tell the stories I wanted to tell.

I also love layering journal cards, as you can see with the blue Bits & Pieces layered over the stripe card, and then repeating that pop of blue throughout the layout.

I created a bonus process video of my first layout I created in my Life Crafted album. I hope you will watch that here!

Thank you so much for joining me today! See you again soon!
