Hello! Welcome back to the blog. Today I’m sharing the first layout I created with the Citrus Twist November kits. I’m using the Main Kit, Sprinkles Kit and Pattern Play #1 Paper Kit. As always, the first layout is the hardest but I knew I wanted to use this cute photo of me and my horse Sharon. This photo was taken in 2007 so it’s quite a throwback. I love the fall atmosphere in the photo so it was the perfect one to use with these kits.
Originally I wanted to use a really soft color scheme but I kind of changed my mind and used that lovely paper from the Maggie Holmes Gather collection with all the different strips which came in the Pattern Play #1 Add On and put it to the right side of my layout. I folded up the edges (and tore them a little bit) to create a little bit of dimension and interest.
The Main Kit came with these really lovely white foam thickers from the Amy Tangerine Oh Happy Life collection. There are a lot of fun phrases on it, but I knew that the ‘All Smiles’ one was perfect for this layout. I grabbed one of the leaf shaped paperclips which came in this month’s Sprinkles Kit and put it over my title. I’ve never used large paperclips like these before but I must admit that I’m in love with them and will probably use them on all my projects with these kits this month. 😉
The Main Kit came with this lovely patterned paper from the Maggie Holmes Gather collection which has these pretty sketchy florals. I love adding florals to my layouts, so I decided to fussy cut some of them out and layered them behind my photo.
Speaking of layering… the Main Kit also have a cut apart sheet which has a lot of useful pieces you can use for various different things. I grabbed a few that matched my color scheme and used them for layering.
Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope you enjoyed seeing this layout. Make sure to check out the Citrus Twist kits here if you haven’t done so already.
