Everyday Smile

Scrapbook Layout created for Citrus Twist Kits  - EVERYDAY SMILE -

Hello there!

I hope you are all getting ready for the upcoming Holiday season!   Around here that means trying to put a dent on the memories-to-scrap folder.  This time i am using this month's Citrus Twist Kits's "Good Vibes" main, embellishment, and Patterned paper play kits to document a picture of my daughter on her 14th birthday.

The inspiration for this page was the Maggie Holmes's Carousel collection ribbon included in the CTK embellishment kit.  I just used the color to create a background for the page, and then the velvety texture of the ribbon gave me the idea of softness, so I chose a flower lace cut file from the Silhouette store.

Once the background was set on the page, I used a few pieces from the kits to frame the picture and add small clusters to the picture.

Since the mixed media was created to guide the eye to the bottom of the page, I used the edge of the white cardstock to add my title using a combination of Turn the Page collection ephemera, and the alphas from the Carousel collection clear stickers.   Then trimmed the cardstock, and attach it (with a few lines of machine stitching) to the Bella Blvd, Gratitude Documented  paper that matched the color of the ribbon.  Here is the final layout:

The end result of this page is soft and subtle.  I am still amazed at how a small piece of ribbon inspired this page. It came together so easily by combining these month's CTK kits (most kits have sold out, but be prepared to start a subscription in November - the upcoming kits are gorgeous!!!)

Remember, I am always a comment away if you have questions on how this page came together.

See you all soon!
