Here's my project created with the gorgeous, gorgeous May 2016 PL kit:
This is the last week of March. My parents were visiting. I thought the products in the kit were just perfect for celebrating spring and people we love.
The embellishments in the kit include epoxy stickers from the Paige Evans collection Fancy Free.
And they also include a pack of Project Life ephemera with silver foil. Friends, we might not be over gold quite yet, but I'm telling you, Silver is the new gold. Be prepared! And it's gorgeous!!
Citrus Twist Kits ALWAYS have the prettiest exclusive embellishments!!! I would take tons of these and could use them up!! Look at the "week" in clear turquoise. So yummy!! And there is a lot of very beautiful subtle yellow in the card which paired with the turquoise is just perfection. I added some stitching and stamping on this card.
From the Fancy Free 6x6 paper pad I was able to punch out several 1" circles with little words on them. Cut in half and stitched along the side of my photos, they are just so pretty.
Lots of cards with room for journaling. I just love it!! With the kit you also get a sheet of labels that you can cut out. It's my most used products on my Project Life spreads. The labels are perfect to add small details.
Small core hearts. There are 3 kinds of them. This tiny one.
The bigger one with the you burnt in the middle. And another one that it slightly bigger with an empty center. Really cute and versatile. Here I layered a cork heart over a Project Life embellishment and I added an epoxy sticker (Fancy Free) + I typed Church on a piece of cardstock that I then cut to size (5 church was the name of the restaurant)
Here I typed on vellum and I cut out my journaling into stripes. You can't really see it on this picture but the "capture" in silver foil. Also look at this cute aqua acrylic flower. <3 nbsp="" p="">
Here again a circle that I punched out from a piece of paper + some journaling on a card. Little hearts make great bullet points :)
Here I played a little bit with the stitching. And I also typed "new bike" on the card before I stitched the word hello.
The small "loving" was cut out of the label sheet. And I typed my journaling in some of the patterned paper included in the kit. I added more half circles.
Sometimes, because my camera doesn't shoot in 4x6, I'm "stuck" with weird format photos that I can,t really crop to a 4x6. What I do is I mat these photos on patterned paper. It's perfect to add a little bit of color to my spread. Paired with an epoxy sticker and the cork heart, it's juts enough to dress up my photo a bit.
And here's another look at the journaling card where I stitched the word sticker "Sweet".
Now, for the NSD week, as inspiration, I have a challenge for you:
Use ONLY products that your really LOVE on your next page and use your handwriting.
Easy enough?? :)
If you play with me, I'd be really happy if you would post a picture to Instagram an tag me in it. And if you have a link to a blog post, leave it here in the comments or on Instagram. I'd love to have a look at what you do.
Have a great National Scrapbooking Week my friends!!!
