Kiwi Lane April Blog Hop and Amber 4

Welcome to the Kiwi Lane April Blog Hop, you should have arrived from JEN COLLINS blog, if not make sure you head back to the Kiwi Lane Blog and hit them all.

When I was asked by Kristy to be part of the blog hop I was beyond excited, getting to showcase the use of my favorite scrapbooking supply who wouldn't enjoy doing that. Make sure you check out Kiwi Lanes online shop as some of the templates in this hop are on sale right now.

I personally use the Kiwi Lane Designer Templates on every single one of my layouts, they make scrapbooking so quick and easy.

For this hop I was given the Tiny shapes templates, which are perfect for those small regular shapes you just can't ever seems to make on your own.



I started with some scraps of paper (we all have those laying around) and used the 5T & 2T templates to have the different sizes of the same shape. Then I just laid them down randomly on my page, over lapping a few, putting some at a different angle. It all worked out to really show off the shape but also my paper as well.
Arrow are a hot thing right now, for this layout I used the 1T template to create an "arrow"  I also used a tiny tag for the journaling card. The templates added just the right shape to this layout.  I used the sketch from Scrapbook steals for this sketch, http://scrapbook.steals.com/wp/2013/03/13/fancy-pants-designs-blissful-blizzard-collection-mid-week-mojo/
















Make sure you leave a comment here and on all the blog posts as a random winner from ONE of the 10 blogs (including the Kiwi Lane blog), will be given a $25 gift certificate to the Kiwi Lane Shop.
