Kiwi Lane Blog Hop & Giveaway



Hello! I am glad that you stopped by today to take a look at the project that I created using the Kiwi Lane Designer Templates and the WRMK North Pole Collection! You should have arrived here from Julie Ann's blog. If you got lost along the way, head on back to the start and redirect yourself! :) I had the pleasure of working with the Chevron Templates for this layout. 


I just printed my Christmas photos so I thought I'd get started on scrapping them since I have this perfect collection to work with! At first glance, you may notice that the layout doesn't shout "chevrons" but if you take a look at the back, you'll see how I put it together. 


I traced each of various widths of chevrons onto the back of my paper. I then cut out the point of each of the chevrons. This allowed for a slit to be formed. I then slid in various patterns of paper to show through on the other side. I love how versatile the designer templates are!
 I loved being able to use so many of the fun & festive patterns from this collection on one layout. 


I thought that it would be fun to have a giveaway on my blog today along with the great giveaway that Kiwi Lane is having! So, be sure that you are a follower, and, just because I am curious, answer one (or both!) of the following questions:

What time of day do you usually read/check the blogs that you follow?
OR
What is your favorite memory from this holiday season?

Remember that the Kiwi Lane blog hop will run through 11:59 PM MST on Sunday January 5th. And a random winner from ONE of the participating blogs (including the Kiwi Lane blog), will be given a $25 gift certificate to the Kiwi Lane Shop, for leaving a comment and will be announced on the Kiwi Lane blog on Thursday, January 9th

I will also post my winner on the same day! I am so glad that you stopped by for a look today! Your next stop along the way is >>Stephanie<< so be sure to hop along and comment along the way!

Scrap Happy~

  1. Melissa, What a great idea to weave the paper! It is a great look! I hope I remember this trick! I am a follower. I like to check my blogs I follow any time I have free time. Which isn't often any more.

  2. Very creative way to use the templates! I usually do not check blogs daily ~ usually Friday evening after my son goes to sleep which anymore isn't very early ~ he is turning into a night owl!! My favorite memory from this Christmas is that my son wanted me to open the first present on Christmas morning (he is 7), that was the best gift I could ever ask for.

  3. I just followed you! I loved that my hubby was able to see the excitement on our daughters faces this Christmas, all the way from Afghanistan! Modern technology is amazing!

  4. what a great new way to use the templates, I am just learning about Kiwi Lane Designs and received my first sets for Christmas, so that was one of my favorite things, as far as memories was that we were able to bring our 18 year old son back home after 6 months of training for the Army National Guard! one happy mom!!! I follow on bloglovin so I love getting notices on my phone daily. I usually sit down after dinner to check them all out

  10. I usually read my blogs at night after the kids are in bed. Usually around 9:00 pm when I finish up odds and ends and sit down at the computer. What you did with the chevron template was really cool.

  11. I read blogs throughout the day (probably spend too much time on the computer). My favorite part of Christmas will happen tomorrow (Saturday) when my granddaughter comes home. She's going on several interviews next week - hopefully she'll get one of the jobs and will move back permanently. We're having Christmas with Christine tomorrow.
    Back to your project - I love the way you cut the chevrons out - some large and some small. Have to remember that technique.
    thanks for sharing.

  15. Great job! Very creative! Trying to figure out to subscribe to your blog still....but will! My SIL had her first baby and only the second grand child of the family on 12/17 so that is my most favorite memory of this Christmas. And I sneak my phone out of my work drawer several times a day to sneak a peek at blogs! :) Thanks for sharing your awesome page.
