Dear Santa 2013 + Kiwi Lane

Layout

In January Kiwi Lanes featured templates are Winter and Mini Aspen,  I just love the tree template and the Snowflakes are fun on any layout.  I layered the tree by putting just adhesive only on the part I put under the other pieces.  This way I can make it stand out or look like it is 3D, the snowflake is done the same way.  Of course I sewed around the page and on a few other pieces.  I added some Bling and Thickers to make the page complete.

Templates used:

WINTER 1 &3

SCALLOPS 1A

SHAPES 7T

 PAPER USED:  Simple Stories: DIY Christmas

I hope this inspires you all to make a layout using the WINTER templates too.

Fall + Kiwi Lane

November_Project    I am so excited about the Month of November,  I am a BIG fan of FALL and Kiwi Lane’s featured templates are Brackets, Adorn and Autumn.  I am in love with the cute Autumn templates, the owl is adorable and the tree and leaves are so fun.  I wanted to do a single layout because for one thing I only had one picture to use for this and a change is always fun.

Templates used:

Bracket 2

Large Bracket 2

Adorn 3A

Autumn 1,2,3,4,5,6

Shapes 7T

Fall_Layout

     I really need to take a picture before I start but I forget all the time..  I started out with my Large Bracket and worked from there.  I sewed around the page because I wanted a different texture to the page.  But I sew on my pages a lot.  The owl has googly eyes to make the owl pop.  I sewed the fall letters on and added a lot of bling

Now with the extra paper I had I made a few cards, Who couldn’t use cards RIGHT?

CARD 1

Owl Card

     I had to make a card with the cute Owl,  I don’t normally put any words on mine because then I can add it with what ever event I need it for.  LOVE the owl, Did I say that already?

CARD 2

Acorn Card

     The last card I made is pretty simple I used the acorn and I used my stickles to the blue part to make it fun and girlie. The ribbon is always fun to put on cards.

Halloween + Kiwi Lane

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

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.

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.

Snow Fun + Kiwi Lane

      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

SnowFun_Layout

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.

Paper Used:

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.

SnowFun_5

 I did distress a lot of the templates on this layout, only inking the snowflakes on the first page.

SnowFun_1

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.

SnowFun_6

I can’t forget the cute little snowmen I found in my winter stuff.
