In the Month of October we are working with Halloween and Tiny Holiday Templates. I was trying to think of something I could make and I remembered I had this Castle Album and I thought how fun it would be to turn it into a Haunted Castle. My girls are going to be Monster High Girls for Halloween so how much fun it will be to put their pictures in this album.. I covered the front with paper and I sprayed the back with Chalk Spritz.
Paper used: Bo Bunny Boo Crew Collection
Kiwi Templates used: Halloween and Tiny Holiday
The Layers of the Ghost, Spider Web, and Pumpkin make the album more dimensional. I didn’t put any pictures on the pages because it is for this Halloween but it is all ready.
Easter TIME and DRESSES: Who doesn’t like the Spring Dresses? Each year my girls get a new Easter Dress. They were so excited to get to go outside and blow their bubbles even though it was WINDY outside.
Kiwi Lane Templates I used:
Shapes: 3T, 4T, 6T, 7T & 8T
Rings: 3 & 4
Paisley Place: 2A & 2B
Springtime: 5 & 6
PAPER USED: SIMPLE STORIES – Vintage Bliss
I LOVE Flowers; The Springtime Template Flowers are adorable. I layered them in different ways with the circle from the shapes in the middle. I rolled the one and the other I scrunched it.
The EASTER BASKET was made from the Shapes 6T as the basket and the 4T & 8T oval shape for the Eggs. I thought they were CUTE.
Of Course we can’t forget the CARDS!! The grey car I just made by paper I had left over and I stickled to make sparkily. The other card I made a flower out of the circle template that I layered.
Happy New Year my Crafty Friends, I can NOT believe that 2015 is here. Last Year (2014) went by way to fast I felt like every time I blinked s new month went by. At Kiwi Lane Design we are working with Tags and Winter Templates. I couldn’t pass up the chance to take advantage of the SNOW we got for New Years. The snowflakes from Winter are too fun.
Kiwi Lane Templates I used:
Tags: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7
Winter: 1, 2
Tiny Tags: 1T, 3T
The First thing I did was print off my pictures. To pick my paper I started by picking a main paper I liked, then I went through my paper and found papers that matched or that I liked with the paper I picked.
the girls’ paperie – on holiday
October Afternoon – Road Map
pinkpaislee – starlight
My Minds Eye – I believe
Echo Park – Sweet Summertime
Fancy Pants – Rusted Sun
American Crafts – halloween
After I chose about 6 papers I figured I would begin, I started with the Tags on the second page. I made it so the tags hung off the page some, glued it down and then turned it over and cut the extra off the page.
The bottoms of the tags is what I used on the left side of the first page. This is how I made it so the pages had something familiar on each page. I then rearranged the pictures till I liked where they were on the page and worked from there.
I did distress a lot of the templates on this layout, only inking the snowflakes on the first page.
Added a few small tags on the page for color and to fill in that space a little. The small snowflake embellishments were added and then I doodled with my black and white pen.
I can’t forget the cute little snowmen I found in my winter stuff.
Kamrynne & Coralyn with Santa, I had to BEG Kamrynne to even sit on his lap she said she wrote a letter she doesn’t need to sit on his lap. STUBBORN one there… I WON though. Coralyn was Mary in the Nativity Scene she was so excited even when she realized she was the only GIRL she asked if she had to kiss Joseph I told her there was NO kissing absolutely NONE…
The Girls in their Christmas PJ’s I was crazy and decided to make their PJ’s this year with the help of a awesome friend (Susan) I even used the heart Kiwi Lane Template to make the heart on their shirts. Wasn’t as bad as i thought it would be it was actually kind of fun to make.
