San Fran Sunset | Citrus Twist Kits

Here's a layout I made as the June Guest Designer for Citrus Twist Kits, using the custom stamps from "Beautiful Life", this months main kit.
 
To start, I added a few scraps of paper behind my photo, adhered it to my cardstock base, and then added some of the custom wood chip stars, (don't you love those sweet little stars!!!) and a few sequins.
 
Next came the Thicker letters and a die cut for the title, then a few more star wood chips and sequins on the other side of the layout.
 
Confetti and sequins etc. are so popular in paper crafting right now, and I love the look! It’s a nice way to add a bit of color and texture to a layout. Here’s where the custom stamps come in.
 
I used the dot circle stamps along with a black ink pad to add in with the sequins and star wood chips. It was a perfect way to add more of the confetti look!
 
To finish off my layout, I added the American Crafts newsprint tag along with the bakers twine that is tied around each kit.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by on this fabulous Friday, yesterday was finally the last day of school for us,  so we are excited to get our Summer started!!!
Have a great weekend!
