BLOG HOP with KIWI LANE DESIGNS !!!!!!

Welcome crafty friends!!!!
I am so excited to be a part of today's blog hop with Kiwi Lane Designs !!!!!
You should be coming to my blog from the Kiwi Lane Blog.
If not......make sure you start from there !!!!!


When Kristy asked me if I would like to be a part of today's blog hop I felt like a little kid jumping around all excited on Christmas morning!!!!  I have wanted to try out and play with these amazing designer templates for such a long time!!!  The only ones I had used were the Wildflower and Bracket Accessories....which I love !!! I think I drove my poor mail lady crazy waiting for my package of templates to arrive!!!

I was sent the 12' Clara Lane Border Set. This border set is just the greatest. It is so versatile and could be used for so many things!!!  I know that many of us paper crafters have electronic cutting machines that are fabulous......but these little babies are so great for so many reason. Sometimes I just feel like cutting.....weird I know, but I really enjoy using a pair of scissors.  And they fit perfectly into any scrapbook bag.  Perfect to take to your next crop. 

So I decided to create a layout, and I used Clara Lane 3A, 3B, and 2B....along with Wildflower 2....
and this is what I created.


I was having such a great time playing..........that I decided to make a quick card!

 
For this I borrowed a mini border from my dear friend Liz......Paisley Place 3B
A little folding....and stitching....and inking....and voila`.....a fast cute little card!!!

THANKS so much for stopping by!!!!
Your next stop is the crazy talented

  9. Super cute! I love how you incorporated your photos to look like the other seed packets. Very creative. Was it hard for you to get started sewing on your pages? I want to try it, but am not much of a seamstress.

    1. Hi Audra....I have always enjoyed hand stitching on my pages, and I use to do a lot of sewing when my kids were much younger. But it took me awhile to use my machine for paper crafts. But once I did I was hooked!!! It's actually easier than sewing fabric because it looks great messy LOL!!!
