Fly The Friendly Skies Tutorial... Citrus Twist Kits


Hello, Hello!

Today, I'd like to share a tutorial that I created for Citrus Twist kit club.  I will walk thru the steps I used to create this layout.  (I created this layout with the August kit)

I love to create layouts and projects with scraps, a piece of cardstock, and my favorite punch.  I'll walk you through my design process for this layout and share some of my design 'tips'.

One of my favorite techniques is to punch, or die-cut several times (with the same punch or die) on a piece of cardstock, layering scraps underneath.  This is such a simple and fast way to create a background that is both unique and fun.

To start, I punched 9 stars on a piece of white cardstock.  I misted the punched cardstock sheet, with the intention of using the 'blue side' for my layout.  When I flipped the punched sheet over, I liked the white side better, with hints of blue, misted around each star.

I then gathered up my scrap pieces of patterned paper and adhered them to my cardstock background so they would appear beneath the punched star shape.

I stitched a grid over each star and splattered Mr. Huey spray on top of the stars.

I layered several strips of scrap paper on both the top and bottom of my page and stitched in place.

I misted three of the white cardstock punched stars, turned them over to reveal the slightly misted edge an adhered them to my page.  I added my photo and title.

To finish my layout, I stamped 'Destination' and 'Bon Voyage' with the Citrus Twist branded sentiment stamp across my page.  LOVE THIS STAMP! 

I hope you enjoyed my design process and try a punched grid for your next layout!  Thank you for stopping by.
