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


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.


 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.

     Every Year we get our Family Pictures, So every year I try to make a layout with our pictures on it.  This year was a little different we have a new Dog (Waffles).  I wanted to try a little different way of doing my page so I started out with a white background.  I used colored paper to add color to my page.  I also used sepia pictures and lighter pictures for a different look.

Lagoon 2014 + Kiwi Lane + MON AMI GABBY

This month at Kiwi Lane we are working with CELEBRATE & PLAYTIME templates along with  MON AMI GABBY.  



I thought it would be FUN to do something with a tin I had we are going to Lagoon for vacation so making a mini album out of the pictures we take.  I used some chipboard, cut it to fit inside the tin and added some paper for the mini album.  Now all I need to do is add pictures and write about our adventure in the mini album.


The FRONT of the tin with the year and a banner with Lagoon on it.  I used Playtime 4 and Celebrate 4 templates to make the dragonfly flower.  I used the MON AMI GABBY product to tie onto the tin for ribbon.



Using the pinwheel for the middle  with a flower on top gives a new look for the dragonfly.  Using  different products is always a good way to make something look different by just adding a new texture or flower in this case.



I used the mesh and burlap as ribbon it made a fun texture for the top pf my tin.

Memorial Day 2014 + Kiwi Lane + The Paper Loft

Hello Kiwi Lane FANS!!  This month I was given The Paper Loft ” the GREAT outdoors” to work with.  We are also working with Kiwi Lane Design Templates Adventure and Tiny Wacky.  The paper is FUN outdoors greens and browns with white.  Love the Woodgrain, trees and houndstooth paper.

DSC_0174aI used Kiwi Lane Design Templates Adventure 5 – Tiny Wacky 3T – Nature 4T, 5T, 6T, 4, 5, 6 – Shapes 7T.  The paper is The Paper Loft “the GREAT Outdoors” and I added some colorful paper to go with the girls coats.  I also used Glossy Accents to highlight the pine-cone.  Of course I used Thickers and my sewing machine.

DSC_0171Layering the leaf makes for a different leaf and outlining just makes each one pop


Using the word cards that came with the set and making them like tags give the flower a leaf look but not a actual leaf.

Live Life + Kiwi Lane + hazel & ruby

May 2014 233When I received my hazel & ruby supplies I was so excited I knew exactly what I wanted to try with it.  I have had this picture frame for over a year and have wanted to try to make it different for over  a year!  Well I finally found something I wanted to use.

The hazel & ruby Stencil Masks are easy and reusable it was fun to use.

 May 2014 227I started with my picture frame some grey paint a brush hazel & ruby paper and stencil mask and some spray glue.

May 2014 229  I took apart the picture frame and sprayed the part I wanted the paper to be on.  I took my scrapper and got all the bubbles out by sliding it back and forth.  I then trimmed my paper and put the letter stencils and Kiwi Lane Template on the paper where I wanted it to be.   May 2014 231I painted over the stencils with my brush and grey paint, let it dry and took the stencils off and cleaned them.

May 2014 233   I then used the accent flowers and cut out 2 flowers inked them and sprayed them with shimmer mist.  I placed a brad in the middle and glued it on the frame by where I painted the stencil of the flower. My project is FINISHED!!May 2014 234  May 2014 235
