Blog Hop⎪Hello Today *Citrus Twist Kits + The Crafter's Workshop*

Citrus Twist Kits is teaming with The Crafter's Workshop this month for a blog hop and giveaways. We are celebrating the launch of Citrus Twist Kit's Design Girl, Jen Boumis's, Life Bits stencils. It all started with Jen's wonderful, handwritten style (that you Pocket Lifer's got to enjoy with our exclusively designed PL stamps this summer) teaming with The Crafter's Workshop owner Jaime Echt to create fabulous and fun 3 x 4 stencils for TCW.

Here are some of the results of that TCW/Jen Boumis partnership.

The blog hop begins today, September 9th, and continues on Mondays and Wednesdays in September through the 23rd. Some of our Pocket Life Design Girls--Jen Boumis, April Joy Hill and WaiSam Ho--are joining with The Crafter's Workshop Design Team members--[Ronda Palazzari and Julie Fei-Fan Balzer]--to share how they are using these wonderful little Life Bits stencils, perfect for life's little projects. Each day of the blog hop--September 9th, September 11thSeptember 16th,  September 18th and 23rd--when you leave a comment or love for the participating designers on their individual blogs and end your hop by leaving a comment here on the Citrus Twist Kits blog you'll be entered into a drawing for a free Life Bits stencil. 
WaiSam Ho  —> I am here
April Joy Hill —> Visit April's blog next!

We'll draw a name from all the people who leave a comment on the Citrus Twist Kits blog each day of the hop and will give away one stencil each day of the hop.

On today's blog hop we are featuring the creative ways the design team members used of 'Hello Today' Stencil. 

And here are some close up how I used the stencil with molding paste + added a hint of colors with my beloved Tim Holtz Distress Markers. Ahhh... I wish the photo could show up the texture of the molding paste better. Guess you gotta drop by my house and check out my Project Life album in person >_< It is really gorgeous in real!



And here's the photo of my Week 32. I was officially 5 weeks behind. Yes, it is stressful to be behind. So I tried doing a relatively simple spread for these few weeks. The papers from Carta Bella 'Hello  Again' collection is now my new fave! Loving the dreamy watercolor effects and I have been using it on layouts, mini albums and PL.


Close-up of the pages. Just cut out the papers from paper pad and layer some stickers —> quick for catching up yet I think this spread is pretty.
