Elle's Studio Kit + My Stash

Hello and welcome readers!  Today I will show you how I combined the September Elle's Studio Kit with the September Pocket Life Kit from Citrus Twist.  I love both of these kits and they work so well together!  First I need to mention I don't do the "normal" PL pages, my page is a full month.  So I call it Take 12.

Here it is:

Here are some close ups.  The cork circle mat is exclusive from Elle's Studio.  Also the Cork Mis. Pieces are also from Elle's Studio, exclusive this month ;)  The other embellishments came in the CTK PL Kit.

Elle's Studio September Kit Reveal

I took the summer off from Elle's Studio since I had so much going on with 5 kiddos at home and I'm so happy to back working with the September Kit.  This kit is packed pull of some amazing tags, frames, and the cutest little embellishments.  Oh and did a mention one of my favorites is a clear tag with a cute saying ;)  So don't forgot today only the kit is $9.99 and then it will go to 11.99, so grab yours for less today!

One of the extras this month you can buy is a Cork Mat, this mat is, in my opinion one of my favorite things any company has come up with.  I did not use the mat on my layout in the way you would think.  I actually used the mat as a stencil.  I took the mat and water colors and created my background.

Now here is the full layout.  I added so many of the cute tags I lost count lol.  You will not want to miss this kit it is one of my favorites!  Oh and see those cute cork pieces?, they are an add-on you can buy HERE

Here is a close up, see the little black lanes?, that is part of the September Stamp.  I love this little stamp!

Here is picture of the full Elle's Studio September Kit and Add-ons

Citrus Twist Kits September Reveal

Wow I can't believe it is September already!!  I had a wonderful summer but it went too quickly.  August kicked my butt lol,, we had a  big vacation, back to school (earlier than normal), and I have been canning like crazy. 

Today I finally get to share with my layouts I created with the beautiful September Kits.  Trina moved reveal day up to the 2nd of each month Yay! So with our further ado here you go.

This layout is one of my new favorites, I used the main kit only.  Also used some new fun water colors for my background.  This is my baby girl (she is not a baby anymore but she is too me ;) ) running in the waves.

This next layout is another fun layout using mainly the Main kit with some of the Embellie Add-on kit. This is such a fun photo I caught my daughter just staring off into the ocean.  I snapped so many picture before she even knew I was there, that is how intently she was in awe.

I will share my last two projects later this week.  Have a wonderful and thanks for stopping by!

Citrus Twist ~ August Kits

This month at Citrus Twist Kits, I worked with the August Kit Add-on Seaside Adventure.  This kit is so much fun, it has some pops of black which is always fun!

My first layout is one I just love, I started layering my papers behind the picture and then started to build up the embellishments from there.  (The mist and white cardstock are from my stash)


This next layout is on I had fun with too.  I printed the picture first then the frame seriously just happened to fit (love how things work out).  I again layered the papers and added my embellishments. (white cardstock and mist from my stash)


Thanks for stopping by!
