November Kiwi Lane Blog Hop

Hello everyone! I'm so excited to have you here visiting MightyCrafty for my very first blog hop with Kiwi Lane Designs! I have loved working with the Kiwi Lane team and all the talented designers who love the Kiwi Lane designer templates as much as I do. So, I'm super excited to share my blog hop project today. And make sure you visit Kiwi Lane for more scrapbooking inspiration...

And don't forget to leave a comment on this post for a chance to win! One lucky winner who comments at one of the participating blogs (including the Kiwi Lane blog) will be given a $25 gift certificate to the Kiwi Lane Shop. The winner will be announced on the Kiwi Lane blog on Thursday, November 7th.

For this month's blog hop, we are featuring some awesome template sets from Kiwi Lane: Abbie Road, Nature, and Tiny Shapes. So without further ado, here's my project...


Our family really does love to hike. We recently moved to Colorado, and we are in love with all the mountains and beauty around us. We try to head out to a new place each weekend to explore. I wanted to create a layout that would showcase some of those photos.



I love, love, love how it turned out. I started out by framing my page with these templates:
  • Abbie Road borders - all
  • Strips 1" and 1/2"
  • Nature 3 and 4
  • Tiny Nature 2T, 3T, and 4T
  • Tiny Shapes 2T, 5T, and 6T
  • Photos


And then I got to work tracing my papers, cutting and inking, then layering. So easy! I used the Recollections paper pad from Michael's called Night and Fall. I love the colors and hand-drawn elements in this collection. The letter stickers are from Creative Imaginations' Studio Basics 101. I then added in bits and pieces from my stash like baker's twine, brads, and word stickers.


For that cute tree, I layered several Kiwi Lane templates together to create the look I was wanting:


Then, I just traced around everything like it was one piece. I love how those Kiwi Lane templates really let you get creative and create anything you can dream up.







Such a fun layout showcasing something our family loves to do. I can't wait to get it into our family album.

Thank you for joining me today at MightyCrafty! I am so happy you stopped by...

Be sure to head on over to the next stop on the blog hop - but be sure to leave a comment here before you go to have a chance to win that $25 Kiwi Lane shop gift certificate!
