This month's kit from Citrus Twist, Love Letters, is gorgeous! Even with it being Valentine's this month, the kit is not overly pink, (just enough to keep me happy) and includes some gorgeous colour mixes in there for everyone and any kind of story, not just lovey dovey stuff ;)
I'm in love with the Dear Lizzy thickers included in the kit. Wasn't so sure on the rose gold fad when I first saw it coming out but I have to admit I'm quickly warming up to it. I've used these thickers on all my layouts so far, still working on a couple so not decided if I'll continue on all of them, but why not when they make doing a title so darn easy?! ;)
First layout to share from this month is this one:
Fairly neutral kind of layout this one (still managed to sneak some pink on there too, haha). And again I've got hidden journaling behind the photo. I've mentioned it before, but I really love doing this. Having the journaling hidden behind the photo lets me use a big photo and embellish without crowding the page with words. I try to always include the story with a layout, because the story really is important, but I'm OK with it not being center stage on my pages. Hidden behind the photo or even on the back of the page is perfectly fine with me. It's there and that's what counts :)
When I do it behind a photo or card on the page though I try to give little visual cues that there is some journaling on the page, so that when others look at the page (or when I'm old and forgetting things) they can see that there is something to lift up. In this case there are tags sitting on top of a heart. Hard to show in a photo but when I look at it I can see its not sitting right and that it indeed lifts up.
Hope you are having a great week. I'm enjoying these last few days before I'm back at work next week. My two weeks holiday has just flown by! Thanks for stopping by :)
