Guest Designing for Kiwi Lane Today

Hello crafty friends!

I’m beyond thrilled to be back sharing my love of Kiwi Lane templates with you, as a guest designer this month.  I had such a fun time creating todays projects! Pairing Kiwi Lane templates with Bella Blvd is a match made in scrappy heaven!!! I “heart” both of these wonderful companies and I love how easy the templates work with Bella Blvd’s collections.

In August my family traveled back to Montana to visit relatives and friends. It has been several years since I’ve seen my parents so you can imagine I took a ton of family pictures. The Family Forever paper collection from Bella Blvd was perfect to capture some of our memories. I love combining different template sets together to create a one of a kind scrapbook layout.

Family Forever

Templates used
Rings 4
Sunnybrook Lane 1A
Scallops 1A
Adventure 4

I had so much fun creating this layout, I decided to make another, but this time I created a pocket style layout. I love mixing traditional scrapbook layouts in my albums with pocket pages.

Life is An Adventure:

Templates used
Scallops mini 2B
Paisley Place mini 3B

For my final share today, I used the Max collection by Bella Blvd. I just love how fun and whimsical this “boyish” collection is.

It was a pleasure guest designing this month for Kiwi Lane! Thank you for having me on the blog today!!! I hope I have inspired you to mix and match your template sets and start creating those one of a kind scrapbook layouts.

Happy Scrapping! -Leslie

Where have I been?

That's probably the question you have been asking yourself. Wow! I can't believe September is here and the kids are back in school. Sorry I've been gone for awhile. Been busy on vacation and getting my kids ready for school. My daughter turned 13 (yikes) in August, my husband and I celebrated 20 years of marriage and the boys have been busy with sports and gearing up for hockey. I haven't had a chance to sneak away to my craft room since the kids have been back in school. I know that is so sad!!! I'm excited to be guest designing this month for Kiwi Lane Designs and I'm looking forward to playing with all the fun goodies they sent me. Though I may not be creating, I've been collecting new scrappy goodies. I hope to dust off my desk tonight and start creating! Oh how I miss my mommy time in my little craft room. Hope you had a wonderful summer, fall is almost here as the cool crisp weather has already appeared in my neck of the woods. (I'm so not ready to pack away my flip flops)

Happy scrapping!
