Citrus Twist Kits | Project Life

Hello everyone!

I have some project life to share with you today.

I used the September kit from Citrus Twist kits. I didn't know that it was my last month on the Project Life Kit Team (I started on the scrapbooking teaming October). It was a very nice kit. Easy to work with. So many great pieces from the Reset Girl ephemera pack. Take a look:

I kept everything so simple!!

I left many pictures as is, without adding anything.

I preferred to use 3x4 cards to write my story.

And 4x6 cards as well, to write my story. I wrote a title with my brush pen.

I focussed on the color scheme and my favorite embellishment pieces.
I was a lot of fun to play, just add a little bit and let it be.

I like that black and white sticker added to the black card.

And since it's so simple, I'll show you right away the 2nd layout I made with the kit.

There was some orange in the kit and I had this picture I wanted to use of our favorite candies... Also the range of the roofs and the orange cast from the setting sun on the picture of my girls... I'm not sure if the whole thing is too orange or if I like it because of the stark contrast with the blues in the page... I think I do like it.

These little wood veneer leaves are just floating around in the pocket. I didn't even bother to fuse the pocket. For now they are pretty much staying in place.

I played a bit here and printed my photo on cardstock. I didn't want to whole attention of the viewer on the candies so I thought I'd print it very pale and journal on it, but I didn't quite like it so finally I reprinted the photo in a smaller format and here's the result. ...

There you go!

These might be the last Project life pages you see from me. Unless people come running and pleading that I continue posting them. lol I will try ti keep doing my album but now that I'm not on the official team anymore I'm pretty sure I will not be as productive with this album which makes me sad a little but at the same time I'm glad that I'll have more time to make bigger pages about bigger stories. We'll see how it goes. My favorite saying right now is: "If you say yes to something, you have to say no to something else." I'm saying yes to a bunch of things at the moment, including hanging out with friends, playing with my kids, designing products, I want to finish my December daily from last year before December this year.... I can't possibly do it all. It's just not healthy and possible.

Ok, have fun my friends!!
And see you again soon!

Your pages are very simple but still very appealing!
I agree, you can't possibly do it all. Maybe you can finish it later by keeping a calendar and small journal so that it doesn't appear like a huge task. I'm stuck on week 18, but I kept notes and printed my photos, and hope that going back will be easy.

I have one album like that that I filled with pictures and never finished. It's from 2013 I think. So I don't think I will ever finish any project I just take note for, sadly :( I'll just try to keep it very very simple and maybe do only one spread a month. It would be better than nothing!!! I have a new PL spread coming on the 14. Another simple one, but ok. I also have my DD from last year to finish before December arrives. Gosh!
