citrus twist april reveal

The Citrus Twist April kits are here! Almost all of the add-ons sold out at pre-sale- there were still a few Kit Add-Ons as of the time I'm writing this post, and also a few of the main- and if you want to make sure you don't miss out on an add-on next time around, you might want to take advantage of the new subscriber special for April and get a $5 gift certificate to the Citrus Twist shop with a new 3 month subscription to the main kit, or get a $10 gift certificate and a free pack of Thickers with a new 6 month subscription.

I made a total of four layouts this month (you've already seen one of them here), though I had at least half a dozen more planned out that I never got to. I think I could have scrapped all month with these kits and not run out of stuff to play with!

This first page is probably my favorite of the batch- I loved using that bold patterned paper (from the Patterned Paper Add-On) as a background. The twine is actually from the kit packaging, and the rest of the elements are a combination of the Main and Embellishment kits.

I went for floral and feminine on this next layout, which if you know May is totally appropriate. I pulled lots of pink, yellow, and tan pieces out to match the flowers in her dress, then glitzed things up a bit with some pops of the silver tinsel ribbon in the Main Kit (there are items from all the kits on this page).

My last kit layout for the month was a Project Life spread (Week 7 of 2013), and I completely demolished the cut-apart journaling card sheet from the kit while making it. I love having a big variety of cards on one layout! There was a ton left in the kit when I finished, but I really only have patience to use the same supplies for one Project Life week (I was a total Core Kit dropout a few years ago- I need variety!). After I finished this page I mixed all the items in with the regular kits (I love mixing all my kits and add-ons together, anyway!) so I could use them on my traditional layouts, too.
