Since I procrastinated too long to be able to order my second Gossamer Blue kit, I moved ahead to some Citrus Twist to play with. I need to order one more kit from Gossamer Blue and now one more from Citrus Twist (cuz, I said I'd work with two kits from each club I listed....)
On first appraisal of the contents of my Citrus Twist September kit; it's pretty, the product selection seems to coordinate well, they are a bit embellishment heavy, six patterned papers and two card stock choices, one alphabet.
Since the kit seemed embellishment rich, I ripped right into the various packages and applied a bunch of things on this layout. This is not my usual motis apparendi!!!! Don't get me wrong, I love embellishments as much as the next scrapper, I just usually go for smaller clusters or one grand statement piece with a few small supporting pieces.
But here as you can see, I just went for it and lined a bunch of elements up. I think the reason it still fits with my desire for some structure, is that everything is contained on the horizontal band of pink patterned paper. I cut the pink pattern to stretch across one of the card stock pieces, the vanilla one (seemed like the word vanilla was more appropriate given the sweet goodness of the candies in my photo!) and this preserved the remainder of the pink piece to use on another page.
For the title I used one of the (many--since we got en entire pack!) wood veneer pieces and I remembered that I had a Thickers set in this kind of peachy-pinky hue! Yeah!
I felt that I needed to carry a bit of interest up to the top and back down at the bottom of the page, so I added a cut doily and a couple more small embellishment pieces. Last, was to sprinkle on some pretty Heidi Swapp gold mist and then drool over the chocolates in the photo!!!!
This kit is proving fun to work with...looking forward to seeing how it all plays out!
