Citrus Twist Goodies for August
You like it when I do this. right? You like to be enabled so that you can blame someone else for the purchasing of lots and lots (and lots and lots) of scrapbook goodies, right? I know this because I, too, like to be enabled (okay we may have to switch the word to encouraged because enabling sounds way too harsh for this positive vibe kind of girl) and shown the path to all that is lovely and good in scrapbook nirvana (and so I can blame someone else when Big Papa gets THAT look on his face).
And because I always aim to please and I know you likey, I bring you a new (to me) kit of the month club. WHAT??? WHATCHU TALKIN' BOUT WILLIS?? Surely, I didn't go all kinds of crazy and join yet another one. OH YES! YES I DID!! And this is my thought process, so just hang with me for a second. I really debated whether or not to put another kit club on my blog. It somehow felt like cheating in a bad, dirty way on those that have come before. And yet, it is not all 50 Shades at all! In fact, it is quite the familial opposite. In my adorable little blonde head, adding another kit club to my lovely brood of 4 is like giving birth to another child (and this one is a WHOPPER, weighing in at big pounds, but with none of the proverbial labor pains or mommy guilt). I love of all of my 5 children (awwwww, I am one short of the Brady Bunch...yeah, NO!) equally and with all of my heart. They all come/came at different times and they are each so very different. Each time I look at them I get all giddy and proud. RIGHT?? RIGHT?? You can totally tell this explanation is soooo working for me (now if I can only get it to work for Big Papa).
So this? This is like a birth announcement; an introduction to the newest blessing. Welcome Citrus Twist to my kit of the month family! SQUEEEEEEEE!! I am one proud mama because not only have I found yet another club that offers superior value, but the customer service is amazing too. I will preface this whole intro thing by saying that I did in fact (kind of, sort of ) realize that the amount of Project Life Like cards I was getting each month from all of my (ahem) children was substantial and that I would basically need to live about 4 lives before I would ever be able to use them all. Because of that, I contacted Trina (me thinks she might be the real "Mama" behind CT) and asked her if I could switch my Pocket Life subscription to their Main Kit for September. Being so amazingly amazing with the customer service "thang" she let me do just that! From here on out, I will be getting the main kit each month (don't look at me like I switched kids in the nursery or something...the child reference is merely that and represents the kit in general).
Just in case you can barely control yourself and need a piece of the action just after seeing my drool worthy picture (the content and the amazing photography--said no one about my blog EVER!), here is the link to Citrus Twist. OH OH AND OH....I forgot the best part!! If you sign up for a kit membership and refer a friend who does the same, you both get an embellishment grab bag. And as you will see soon enough, the embellie grab bag is FABULOUS! Tell Trina I said HOWDY!!
I really, really (really, really, really) have a hard time saying no to a stamp. Case in point, I added on both of these lovelies. The prices are so good and the stamps are so freakin' cute and appropriate for my style of scrapping that it really is hard to say "no" so I didn't. Sorry Nancy Reagan (another 80s reference...apologies to my young readers), but this girl just said YES!
I expressed a few blogs back (ahhhh, it is so nice to say a few blogs back and totally not mean a few months or years back) that I have started incorporating (and loving) 12x12 layouts into my pocket page scrapping. I love how CT puts together trending papers for me in a nice and neat coordinated way. Once again, the price is so good that I just had to add it on.
Remember the freebie that I mentioned for September (the "sign up for a kit membership and encourage a friend to sign up for kit membership too" freebie)? Well I was lucky enough to sign up in August (different freebie incentive) and get this LOAD of embellishments in a grab bag (anyone else LOVE a grab bag???) I was totally blown away by how current and hip these embellies are and am loving the fact that, once again, CT went out of their way to just say thank you.
Now go check out the September picks for Citrus Kits INSTEAD OF THE LAUNDRY! Dirty clothes can wait; awesome kit memberships must be ooooogled now! And if you need one more thing to do INSTEAD OF THE LAUNDRY, go check out my You Tube video which showcases the kit goodies even better. And once you get done watching....NO! I haven't finished the book which is why my blog still looks busted. Patience my little blog readers; I can't hit you with my fabulousness all at once....baby steps!!
