Kiwi Lane designs I Love them!

Kiwi Lane Designs
Today is the last day to enjoy the sale on their site It's 25% off .
If you haven't heard of them be sure to check them out. and watch some of their videos.And get inspired
I hadn't scrapbooked in a while and was in a funk  these helped me  make some great looking pages .These templates help,  by laying out your page with templates before you cut into your paper. Believe me it saves on paper and also  helps you make some great layers on your pages .and frames your pictures beautifully
. I love these templates and the Owners are so great,actually. I  Spoke to Susan in Cedar city Utah  today So sweet.

Here are some pages I have made with the templates so far,
I have Madison Avenue, Paisley place and Floral Tiny templates.
As you can see the florals aren't that tiny. I embossed the flowers with My cuttlebug . These are Beckys prom pages . the Black and white swirl paper is glittered and so Pretty . But doesn't show in the pics.
I made some more pages last night and this morning . But haven"t taken pictures yet.
I am actually waiting until I receive My New camera which will take much better Pictures.

I just ordered Spook Alley borders and Wacky accessories can't wait to receive them. So check back in this month when I continue to make some pages with these wonderful templates.
I still Love my Cricut But these go hand in hand. Make a great layout then add some Cricut embellishments then I'm done.
I plan on making a Scrapbook  page a day In September more details to follow as to why I am inspired to do this.

KIWI LANE Thanks for the Inspiration and motivation
