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.
