Citrus Twist Kits NSD 2019 Blog Hop

Hello friends! Welcome to the Citrus Twist Kits NSD Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Theresa's blog.

I am so exited to be a part of today's blog hop.  This month's kits are beautiful, and I'm happy to be sharing a layout using the May Scrapbooking Add-on Kit and the "Excursions" Life Crafted Kit stamps.

Here's a look at the layout I created:

I adore the Crate Paper All Heart collection, and this month's Add-on Kit includes lots of it!  

I chose to document this fun selfie, taken on the way to a costume banquet, and thought it would work perfectly with this kit.  To begin the page, I trimmed a piece of white textured cardstock into an 8.5x11 size.  I trimmed two patterned papers and adhered them down the center of the page, adding machine stitching to the edges for extra texture.  Next, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out one of the NSD cut files, modifying it slightly so it would mostly cover the length of the page.

Once the base layers were complete, I adhered my photo and layered a die cut frame over it.  I created two main embellishment clusters, adding ephemera pieces, puffy stickers, and chipboard stickers to these areas.  Next, I stamped a couple of sentiments from this month's Life Crafted stamp set.  I couldn't resist adding the bow from the kit to the bottom cluster.  It is not something I would normally choose to use on a page, but I think it works perfectly on this layout!  To finish off the spread, I added some black mist splatters.

This layout came together so quickly using this gorgeous kit and stamps!
