Adding Dimension with Kiwi Lane Templates

Today I am over on the Kiwi Lane Blog sharing a tip on how to add dimension using your templates. Be sure to check it out.

Let me just say that I really love working with the templates on a regular basis and there is always something cool to do with them. If you don't have any yet, they are so worth it!

As promised here are a few more pictures of today's featured layout featuring WeR Memory Keepers Crazy for You collection.

Kiwi Lane February Blog Hop

 Welcome! Welcome! Welcome!  Thanks for joining me today for the Kiwi Lane Designs February Blog Hop. I am so excited to have you here! I just want to start out by professing my love for Kiwi Lane Templates. That's right, I love them. My name is Staci and I am a KLD Template addict. If you are visiting me today, you are either already a KLD addict, or soon will be. :) I love the ease, quickness and versatility of the templates. I love being able to lay them all out and design my own page. The templates make layout design so easy. For my layout, I pulled out my Clara Lane, 12 inch strip, and Sweetheart templates.  I grabbed some black paper and my pics to lay out my design. I used the back side of my pictures to design placement because I didn't have the Photo Set. (I have the Photo Set now and let me just say that it is wonderful. I highly recommend it.)

After it was all laid out, I grabbed a pair of scissors and Authentique's Carefree collection and got to work. Before using the templates, my 2-pagers would take forever. Laying everything out makes doing a 2-pager so much easier and faster. After getting it all designed, I was able to get it cut, inked, glued and finished within the hour. For me, that's pretty fast.

Templates Used:
  12 inch strips- 1 inch
  Clara Lane 1 a&b,2 a&b, 3 a&b
  Sweetheart 1, 3, 4, 3T, 4T

Other Supplies:
  Authentique "Carefree"
  American Crafts Thickers and Ribbon
  Doodlebug Jewels
  Colorbox Ink- Charcoal
