It's Tuesday Tip Time with Kiwi Lane Designs and Doodlebug Design Inc

Spring is in the air outside my window and in my craft room thanks to the bright and cheery Doodlebug Design Inc Flower Box collection. Today on the Kiwi Lane Designs blog I have a couple projects to share and some quick tips for using your Kiwi Lane designer templates - Chestnut Drive, Celebrate, and Tiny Florals. So check out the Kiwi Lane blog and Facebook and then be sure to check out the Doodlebug Design Facebook page too for loads of inspiration.

Want to know how to make an easy pocket for cards and pages using your templates? I made a quick video tutorial explaining the process. Take a look.

April Kiwi Lane Blog Hop

My first experience using Kiwi Lane Designs templates was last summer. I bought the complete set of mini templates at an expo and that night I used the designer templates to create a 8" album for my mother-in-law's birthday party. That night at a crop I completed practically and entire album. The creation process was so much easier with the templates and I was finally able to complete the book. When I gave my mother-in-law the album she loved it, especially the pages I used the Kiwi Lane templates on. I was hooked after that.

 Now many templates later I am still hooked and I am using them to create my pages of my mother-in-law's birthday party. Using the Anna Griffin Maude Asbury line and the Chestnut Drive borders 1A and 3B (also used 1" strips), I made this two page spread with a few pics of the party.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  Don't forget to leave a comment, here and on all the blogs in our hop, to
