Hi friends! Happy Friday :)
Back with another layout using the gorgeous June kits though and incase you didn't know - I love the bight, happy colours of the kits this month so I decided to add a little from each colour of the rainbow onto this one.
Rainbows on a page are always a good idea and the paper from Elle's Studio in the Pocket Life kit this month were a perfect match to make that happen! I backed each coloured paper with a neutral (black/white papers from Main/Addon) and then stitched around the edges for some texture.
Originally I'd planned to fill the page with these little rainbows but it got a little crazy looking so I toned down the bottom section of my page by using the grid paper from the Main kit.
This months Add-on kit comes with a cute stencil so I thought I'd break out the white modelling paste! It's not often I use the "messy" stuff so it made for a fun change. And I love the texture it adds!
And that's the last page I've created (so far!!) shared! I'll have a little mini-album up on the CTK blog a little later this month :)
Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by. Take care, Em xo
I'm back to sure the next page I created using the CTK June kits! This one features paper from Paper Play #1 and goodies out of the Add-on kit. I LOVE this page. There I said it, I actually really love this one. I should probably say it's because of the subject but if I'm honest it's about the COLOURS! I looooove the bright colours!
Pinks and yellows = happppppppppppy! Add in some mint and baby blue and it's just pretty (well I think anyway). I punched 1 inch and 3/4 inch circles from the Paige Evans Oh My Heart Paper "24" ( Pink Paislee) pattern paper and then just layered them together, making sure I mixed up the patterns/colours.
I ran a few of them through the sewing machine in a few different stich types (love my little sewing machine!). Then I sat them at the top of my page in a pattern 4/3/4 and another row at the bottom (4 so it matched the top!).
To help reduce the amount of "white space" on my I machine stitched a border around my page in 2 different shades of pink cotton and I really how it turned out (plus the colours help make the page really "pop!").
My journaling is hidden under the photo and I just used a bit of washi tape (from the Add-on) to act a the hinge. Then I popped one of the die-cuts (from the PL kit) behind my photo and it helps act as a tab you can grab to lift the photo up and read the journaling!
How cute are those yellow alphas from the Add-on kit?! Such a fun font and...THEY'RE YELLOW! Looooove, love, love!
Then I just popped a few of the enamel dots on a few of the circles (in matching colours of course!) and it was done!
I'm really happy how this one turned out. I managed to use circles (which you know I love!) again with pattern papers in bright, happy colours. Perfect combo!
Thanks so much for checking in! I'll be back in a few days with another page! ;)
Take care, Em xo
Can't believe it's been a month since my last post. I am the worst blogger... I really need to work on some kind of schedule so I can be more consistent. Or doesn't it really matter? I'm curious to know what you think!
Blogs are a funny one for me; I go through stages where I read them everyday (other peoples that is) and then I can go a week or more without checking them... Instagram is my go-to without a doubt. I'm on that every day. Although my sharing there has slowed somewhat too.... Unfortunately life has been busy and something has to give.. The craft time has not stopped though; I'm in my craft room almost every day. Keeps me sane :)
But onto more fun things! Like talking about the AMAZING Citrus Twist Kits for June. Oh-my-lawd can I just say, I love this months kits. I think it's safe to say they would near be one of my all-time favourites. Colours are just perfect and such a delight given the bleak grey weather we have over here at the moment! I've made 3 layouts and a mini-album so far and love them all!
The first page I created is using the Main kit. Lots of die-cut happiness on this one! I went with a simple grid-type layout for this one which is always fun.
The Elle's Studio die-cuts are gorgeous and in a great mix of colours. I also mixed in a couple of the chipboard pieces so that I could have more colours of the rainbow on my page :)
I typed my journaling on the computer (using a typewriter font) and printed it out on plain paper.
And there you go, first page FINALLY shared. Wohoo!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I'm sorry I'm so slow at updating this space. But you can bet I'll be back to share the rest of my layouts this week (the mini will be up on the CTK blog later in the month ;) ).
Take care, Em xo
