blog hop: citrus twist and the crafter's workshop team up!


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' (hey, that's me!!!), Life Bits stencils. It all started with my handwritten style (that you Pocket Lifer's got to enjoy with our exclusively designed PL stamps this summer) paired 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:TCWOrderFormSummer2013.xlsx
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 (yup, still me!), 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 11th, September 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. 

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 "Hello Today". I chose to use this stencil over a misted background on watercolor paper. Using a super fine line .01 black pigment marker, I traced around the outline:
Then, using my favorite creamy Prismacolor pencil in a coordinating blue, I added color between the lines:
Layered on half of a 4x6 grid card, simply embellished with a few hearts, a hand stitched line and a label with one of my exclusive Citrus Twist Kits stamps and I have a perfectly beachy card ready to slip in our vacation album.

Thank you for stopping by for the hop. Be sure to leave your comments (or some love) below for your chance to win one of the new The Crafter's Workshop Life Bits stencils.
