friday favorites | april 5, 2013

Happy Friday, everyone!

The weekend is nearly here, and I have organization on the brain. I'm ready to tear everything out of every closet, bin, basket, and bookcase in my house, go through it all and get rid of a bunch of stuff, and then make everything that's left pretty. I can do that in one weekend, right? 

This week's scrappy, crafty picks include a few organization ideas along with some inspiration to get your weekend off to a good start. Enjoy!

  • I love how Mari Claudi sets up her Project Life kits for use each month!
  • This post by Lisa Moorefield on trimming up her scrapbooking supplies has me looking at my stash in a new light- she's got some great ideas!
  • Ruth Bonser recently wrapped up a series of posts on using 6x6 paper pads for scrapbooking, and in this particular post she used one of those pads to make a two page layout- something that's much sought-after these days!
  • Suzy Plantamura's lovely mini album brings her signature doodles to the Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm collection.
  • Design Love Fest has a great archive of trendy desktop wallpapers to spruce up your computer screen.
  • Alice Golden wrote an in-depth post about how she uses Lightroom for Stacy Julian's Library of Memories system.

And, before I go, I just wanted to let you know that Citrus Twist Kits is running a new subscriber special during the month of April. New subscribers to the main kit will receive a $5 gift certificate to the Citrus Twist store, good toward add-ons and shop items, with the purchase of a 3 month subscription. If you sign up for a 6 month subscription, you'll receive a $10 gift certificate along with a free pack of Thickers! You can see sneak peeks of the April kits over on the Citrus Twist blog, and I've included a peek at the stamps below. I love how usable all of the kit stamps always are!
