Citrus Twist Pocket Life Challenge

Hey Everyone! This is Jennie and I am really excited! The Citrus Twist Blog has a few challenges every month to jump start your creativity. This week Kristen will be inspiring you! One of her prompts is to use black and white photos, The second one is to do something you've never done and the third one to focus on the photos. 

I am crazy about labels! They are perfect for layering but most of the time I use them to stamp my dates on my title card. I love using a heart die with my 6x6 papers because you can really see the cute patterns in the die cuts.

These aqua alpha stickers are gorgeous! I love the silver foiling! They are exclusive from Citrus Twist. 

Something I've never done in my pages is using photo corners. I really love how it came out! These are from the Sprinkled Add On Kit. For the base card of the photos I used the 6x6 paper pad. 

A good tip to use black and white photos it to look for  low quality photos. It makes them look better instantly. It's also a good option when the colors don't match the rest of the photos. I went to town on my 4x6 photos with the Turn The Page Stickers.

I loved the photos from this week because they were happy random memories. The colors were really happy too! 
I hope you were inspired by Kristel like I was in this layout!
Have an awesome day! 

Spring Pocket Pages

Hey Everyone! For this layout I wanted to use my Project Life cards stash. I have so many it's crazy! This one is an oldie! I've had it in draft for months! I kept forgetting about it! 

I used the Happy Place Project Life Kit and I got my Freckled Fawn embellishments! These embellishments go perfectly with Project Life Cards. If you have a a bunch of cards and you only need embellishments pick up an Oh Deer Me Kit

I used a few 3x3 photos. I put these photos on the cards and added washi, puffy stickers and little words from Simple Stories to frame them.

These awesome alphas are from Studio Calico and I didn't have any numbers so I stitched the numbers with an Amy Tangerine stitching stencil. 

This week I was taking little snapshots of my life. I don't do week in the life because that is what I try to do with my Project Life all the time. I had a lot of white space around that photo with the Lalaloopsy shoes so I used a 2 inches circle punch. I love how it looks! I need to do it more often.

I also used little word stickers from Tim Holtz.

I love the happy colors of this core kit! I also used a bunch of emoticons from Freckled Fawn. To glue the rubber emoji pieces I used the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive.

I hope you enjoyed these olden pages! 
Take Care! 


Project LifeBlack & White in Full Color!

Hi Everyone! This is Jennie! I am in LOVE with Black & White! The September Oh Deer Me Kit got me hooked! I grabbed a bunch of black and white things from my freckled stash! I had so much color in these pages that I had no idea what to do with them. The black and white worked perfect! 

When I decide on a color scheme I start with washi tape. It's the easiest thing to pick for me.

Freckled Fawn is very talented with fonts! I love to mix them and layer them! I like to use small fonts like the Black Puffy Script Alpha Stickers on photos.

This is the only color embellishment I grabbed because I wanted really big letters and the green works with the photos. Underneath I layered washiWhite Foam Words Stickers and Chipboard Words.  I like to staple some embellishments to add detail and texture.

The Foam Words also come in black! I used the Black & White Vellum Alphas to underline the word amazing!

In this filler card I wanted to play with words and fonts. You can find the ampersand in the Large Acetate Numbers. I used the Tombow MONO Twin Permanent Marker to color the  Days of the Week Wood Veneers.

The Glitter Enamel Triangles are perfect little accents for pages and photos.

I love square photos, I need to include them in my album more often!
I hope you enjoyed these pages! Take up the challenge to only use black and white supplies and let us know how it goes!


Black & White Traveler's Notebook with Freckled Fawn

Hey Everyone! This is Jennie. In this post, I'm using the September Oh Deer Me Kit from Freckled Fawn! It's Black & White and I am loving it! I also pulled a bunch of black & white items from my freckled stash. 

I used an old Freckled Fawn stamp and StazOn to decorate this Notebook Insert. On the corner, I used the polka dot washi from the September Kit. I kept the embellishments really simple. I LOVE these Resin Cameras, this was my favorite camera from the Doodle Puffy Camera Stickers. I love Puffy Icon Stickers and these circles are so versatile and pretty! 

On the inside of this Notebook Insert I made this black & white spread.

On top of the Acetate Circle I used one of the borders from the Black & White Vellum Stickers. In the September Oh Deer Me Kit you get 4 Resin Cameras and there are two styles. I used one for the cover and one for this spread. Next to my photo I used the Silver Foil Epoxy Astronomy Stickers and Chipboard Phrase Stickers.

I did some lettering with my Tombow Brush Pens and finished the quote with the Black Puffy Script Alphas. I love these Glitter Enamel Triangles.

I hope you enjoyed taking a peek into my Traveler's Notebook! 
Take Care!


Project Life with Freckled Fawn

Hey Everyone! This Jennie and as usual I have a Project Life spread to share! 

I mixed a lot of Freckled Fawn journaling cards in this spread!

I've been trying to use a lot of products from my stash. I love re-discovering products because in a way they feel almost new. One of the items I've been trying to stash are the orange alphas from a Oh Deer Me Kit from 3 years ago! I managed to use them a bunch of times and I still have a bunch of letters!

I kept my title card super simple. I used a plain white circle to make the Large Acetate Numbers pop! I also added the Yellow & White Puffy Script Alphas on top of the number. I didn't have a "k" so I had to cut an "x". I love these cute little Tiny Minty Green Rhinestone Stars from the May Oh Deer Me Kit.

These Vellum Phrase Stickers from the February Oh Deer Me Kit are perfect for photos!

I used a card from the Every Moment  Counts set to mat a 3x3 photo. These cute enamel hearts and stars come in the Epoxy Foil Floral Stickers.

I love acetate pieces because you can always peek at what's behind and the are easy pieces to layer. I used the Acetate Speech Bubbles Die Cuts over this journaling card.

 Ancient products unite! Oldies but goodies and I love them!

I got the idea of stapling the white Puffy Heart from Jen Schow. I like how it adds even more texture.
 I made a shaker pocket for my movie ticket using a Simple Stories Flip Pocket and the Fuse Tool.

 This week we had a little trip to National Postal Museum and I used a 6x12 insert to add more photos!

I like to add an element at the center of collages so the photos don't look so divided. In these collages I used the Lovely Day Chipboard Stickers.

This card had a busy pattern and two photos that cover almost the whole paper so I kept it super simple with labels and Chipboard Phrases Stickers.

I hope you enjoyed this post! Stay tuned for the NEW Kits!
