Summer + Kiwi Lane Design

Summer of 2014 we went on a trip to Alton to go to a Summer Party.  We stopped at the top of the mountain to look at the scenery of the mountains and this is what we saw.  It was pretty and HIGH… The  girls are so lucky they get to be in all my pictures that I take.  But they do such a wonderful job.

105In June we are working with Cascade Trails and Adventure.  So I used the cute stars in the adventure templates and I used one from the Cascade Trails, oh ya and the arrow from

Easter Dresses + Kiwi Lane

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

Nature: 1T

Delight: 3



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.


Birthday Girl + Kiwi Lane

I was looking through my pictures to find something to make a layout with the Celebrate Templates and found these pictures of my daughters birthday last year.  I thought making a banner with the templates could be fun so the first page is a banner with mostly the Mini Celebrate.  The second page is of her blowing out her candle, of course on her sugar cookie that she asked for.   I made the flower out of Nature 6T which I have loved to make on a few of my layouts.  Sewing has always been my favorite thing to add texture and a different look.

Kiwi Lane Templates I used:

Mini Celebrate:  1T, 3T, 4T & 7T

Celebrate: 1, 2, 4, & 7

Nature:  6T


Colorbok: Signature Hopscotch

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.
