Citrus Twist Kits - 3 to Inspire!

Hi Everyone!  I hope you're week's gotten off to a great start!

I finished up the project life spreads that I wanted to get out of my May Citrus Twist Kits on the weekend, but I had a few bits and pieces left over, so I'm playing along with the 3 to Inspire challenge over at the Citrus Twist Blog this week.

The prompts this week are:
  1. Use one punch two ways
  2. Add layers
  3. Use a neutral background
For the full challenge post and to see Michelle's inspiration piece, head over to the CTK blog.

And here's my take on the challenge!

I've created a traveller's notebook spread about my favourite treat for morning tea at one of our regional shopping centres.  I've also included a bit of a backstory with just another example of my hubby's and my 101 personality differences.  We love each other more than anything, but gosh we're like chalk and cheese!

I've ticked off the neutral background prompt by using a white background, and added layers with patterned papers, cut apart labels and some die cut and fussy cut ephemera pieces.

For the final prompt of using one punch two ways I've dug out one of my favourite butterfly punches from my stash.  The first way to use it is pretty simple, just punch a butterfly and use it in a cluster by my photo.

To use the same punch a second way, I've first punched another butterfly in the same paper, but this time I want to use the negative of the butterfly.    So I've pulled out a circle punch, centred the butterfly and punched it out! 

You can see below I've backed this negative butterfly with some kraft cardstock and layered it on the right side of the spread.

It was so much fun playing along with this challenge this week!  If you have a chance to join in be sure to share your entry to the CTK Facebook Fan Page, on Instagram by tagging @citrustwistkits or in the CTK gallery.
