August 2022 - Mini-kit and project reveal

 Mini kits are a great idea if you don't have time for big projects. A spark may come from part of our kit which you can use to create a page or two or perhaps some other kind of project.

Citrus Twist TRAVELOGUE Life-Crafted Kit - April 2022 – Citrus Twist Kits

Master Forgers Kate, Lisa and Laura are showing you 3 ways to create a mini kit and use it.

MF Laura created a digital mini kit using mostly Maggie Holmes/Crate Paper digital supplies. She went more towards a beach vibe than a travel vibe like the original inspiration kit. She decided to put together a travellers notebook title page that she can print off and stick. She loves playing with digital paint with no mess!

MF Lisa picked out the paper with the citrus orange design as her jumping off point for the mini-kit and picked out a fruity print from Carta Bella Summer Market collection. She added in a few more sheets from the same collection (strawberries decking and a bright green dot/lemons) which took the kit away from travel and into the summer season. She then added in some stickers, enamel dots, tags, chipboard and a sheet of puffy stickers with the intention of making a handful of summer cards.

Four cards were very quickly pulled together using mix and match bits and pieces making super simple but fun cards for sunny greetings!

Hopefully, more cards will follow in the next days which she hopes to share! 

Again, super easy as well as quick and simple saves the day. 

MF Kate used all the green and gold papers as her primary inspiration, then added in some fruit papers along with a mix of light florals and fun polka dots.

For her embellishments, she dug deep in her vintage stash and chose a mix of summer pool and beach along with some travel ephemera.
