Welcome crafty friends!
I'm honored to be back sharing my love of Kiwi Lane templates with you as a guest designer for this months Kiwi Lane Blog Hop.
If you are hopping in order than you have arrived here from Stephanie's blog.
How does winning a $25 dollar certificate to the Kiwi Lane Shop sound? What a silly question! One random winner from one of the blogs including the Kiwi Lane blog will win. Make sure you are leaving comments on all the Blog Hop blogs to be entered. You have until January 5th, 11:59 mst to comment. The winner will be announced on the Kiwi blog January 9th.
As a past design team member for Kiwi Lane, I was beyond excited to be joining in this months hop! I love all my Designer templates and continue to use them every time I create a layout! If you haven't tried any of the templates be sure to pick yourself up a set or two and give them a try. I promise you won't be disappointed!
The Chevron templates are the newest addition to the Kiwi Lane collection and is what I used to create the layers on my scrapbook layout.
I've been wanting to scrapbook an oversized family photo we just had taken in October, but wasn't sure how to go about it, till I started playing with the Chevron templates.
I gathered all my supplies and placed my templates down as a starting off point. I like to think of my templates as moveable sketches.
After tracing the chevron onto my pattern paper I discovered a trick to making the cutting process a bit easier.
Cutting tip: Cut all the zig zags going the same direction first then turn your cut template and repeating cutting the other zig zags. You will end up with a perfect cut chevron.
I loved playing with this template set and found so many fun patterns to create by just moving the templates opposite of each other.
Here's an example of one of the patterns I used on my layout.
And now for my finished scrapbook layout using
Chevrons 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B
Sunnybrook Lane 2A, 2B
Strips 1 inch
