3-to-INSPIRE challenge - Citrus Twist Kits

Hi there!
Nathalie with you today bringing you this week's 3-to-Inspire challenge.   This month's The Best of This Life kits are amazing!  Lots of color,  playful designs and super versatile which made creating this challenge super easy.  But before i show you what i created, let me  give you the prompts:

  1. Document multiple pictures
  2. Use Digital files (cut apart elements/PL cards/TN papers/ Stamps/Cut Files)
  3. Add a bit of  Mixed Media.

With these prompts it was so easy to create two projects, here is the first one in my Life Crafted Album:

 I started this page by printing the 4x6 PL card to fit the Life Crafted page (5x8.5in)  the used a bit of Vicki Boutin art crayons and a stencil brush to add the mixed media to the center of the card, and also to a piece of light blue cardstock cut on the same size.

 If you follow my work, then you will know that i receive daily pictures of my Goddaughters, so i took 3 of them and printed them on photo strip .  I glued the picture right on top of the mixed media, and then added a few ephemera pieces and labels from the Best of This Life kit as well as added some sentiments using the Traveler's Notebook stamp.

For this page, I used one of this month's subscriber cut files to create the Sun cut out.  The sunrays were backed using the  rainbow paper from the  Best of This Life Kit and then glued to the blue cardstock  -remember i added a bit of art crayon to the background-.   The center of the sun was the perfect spot to add my lines of journal all about these precious girls.

To finish the page, i used the beautiful woodgrain chipboard alpha from the Best of This Life kit and paired it up with some sentiments from the This is Life stamp for this month.   A few scattered enamel dots complete the page.   This was so fun to put together, but now let me show you how i used the same prompts to create a 12x12 layout:

This layout screams summer, and was put together rather easily using this month's Add on kit and the three prompts.

I used the teal cardstock included in the kit as a starting point, and trim a bit of the sides.  Then used white acrylic paint to haze the center line of the background and set aside to dry.

While the background dried, i used one of this month's subscriber cut files to cut the floral images from smooth white cardstock.  These were set on the page so that they look as they are wrapping the background.   I used papers from the kit to back the pictures and bring the red tones in my Goddaughter's pictures ( she was so happy to play in the wading pools while visiting us last year).

I added a few  stickers from Pinkfresh Studio's Out and About and Joyful day collection to create a cluster on the picture, and then added stamping sentiments around the background using the This is Life stamp set.

For the title i used a combination of Puffy Stickers from the Joyful Day collection - the words are included in the add-on kit- and the small ones i picked at the CTK shop-  then used a few more stickers from the kit and the Best of This Life Kit.   The cute sequins included in the kit were then added around the page to bring the colors to the background.   The following video will show you how the page came together,enjoy!

I hope this inspires you to use the three prompts and create a page of your own.  Remember to check the Best Of This Life Kits, add ons and stamps, there are so beautiful and versatile, you will love them.   AS always, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
