This layout was made using the September Citrus Twist Kits Main and Pocket Life kits, plus my own alphas and a few mambi chips. I love how it turned out. Sometimes it seems that if you want to include a lot of journaling in on a layout it distracts from the flow of the page -- but it becomes part of the page on this little sheet of notebook paper from the Dear Lizzy Polka Dot Party cut apart page. I punched the edge to make it look torn from a notebook.
Of course, there is some stitching. It's so easy and a great way to add a little texture. This is cream thread with a gold bobbin thread -- just a little bit of sparkle shows through.
This heart mambi chip fits on the Amy Tangerine paper almost perfectly! It was too good not to use. I love how it keeps the flow of the paper, but adds a little extra pop with the dimension and the glitter. I also love how the b-side of the bottom strip of paper coordinated with the rest of the line. I wanted to show it off, so I folded it down for extra texture!
