Kiwi Lane March Blog Hop





Hey All!!!  I am soooooooooooooooo excited to be part of the Kiwi Lane Blog Hop this month.  :)

You should be coming to my blog from Nella Nalam's blog Memorable Scraps.  :)  If you are arriving from somewhere else make sure you go back to the start at Kiwi Lane's BlogThere are prizes at stake.  :)

When Kristy asked me to be part of this hop I was absolutely ECSTATIC!!  I could barely contain myself.  :)  I think my hubby and kids might have thought I had finally fell off my scrappy rocker.  LOL

I found Kiwi Lane about a year ago and I have been completely addicted to their Designer Templates ever since.  It really has made my life a lot easier.  Being able to make my page map and see what my layout is going to look like before I ever cut 1 piece of paper is the bomb!! 

Ok enough of my babbling and on to the good stuff.  Here is the first project I created.  I had a totaly blast making these flowers.  They were sooooo easy.  Just traced the templates onto paper coffee filters, cut them out, used floral tape to wrap them around a floral wire then sprayed and dried.  I did do some curling of the petals in the end.  The Designer Template I used was the Tiny Wildflower.  This is one of my absolute favorite templates.  I use it a lot.  I am a flower kind of  girl....





I also decided to make a double page layout.  The Designer Templates I used were
Tiny Wildflowers, Chestnut Drive, Cascade Trails, Tiny Brackets, Tags, Strips, Photo Mats

Whew!!  Lol  I think that was it.  :)  The papers I used were really old but I think they look awesome on the layout.  I was going for a Wedding kind of theme with the bouquet and the layout.

The flowers on the layout and the bouquet were made from coffee filters and a couple of Lindy Stamp Gang sprays.  (Another one of my favorite scrappy things.)
















I have a little treat for those of you who have stopped by.  :)   I am giving away the Tiny Wildflower Designer Template that I used to create the bouquet of flowers to one lucky scrapper!!!  Yeahhh!!!  I love prizes.  :)

  14. I never thought of using the templates to make a bouquet of flowers. And I loved your pages. I've been putting ideas together to scrap my nephew's wedding (the first of all nephews and nieces) with black and white as their wedding colors. This just fits my concept. Also joined your blog. Where have you been all my scrapbooking life?
