Pearl – Layout 3
Gosh, it’s great to be back Mid Week Mojo’n with you all! I’m thrilled that I get to work with the Kiwi Lane Designs Borders and Accessories. My passion for paper crafting was rejuvenated when I was introduced to Kiwi Lane Designs. Combine that with how honored I am to be part of their 2012 design team and I’m pretty much giddy to be sharing my creations!
I recently returned from teaching a class at the Craft and Hobby Association show in Chicago. My class ended early in the morning so I had the rest of the day to hang out with a few of the lovely ladies that helped me in my class. We pulled up our tourist britches, jumped on the train, and spent the rest of the afternoon exploring downtown Chicago.
I love how today’s steal, the Kiwi Lane Designer Templates, works to create a layout in a snap! I’m crazy in love with the brackets and tags templates and use them often.
I love how perfectly the bracket templates work for a journaling block on the go. I created this layout last weekend at a crop and it was so nice to be able to create a perfect bracket without lugging around an electronic die cutting machine.
One of my favorite techniques with the smaller templates is to cut out paper and then fold them into a unique fringe. Each different template gives you a completely new look!
Of course, the tags make perfect banners. I simply can’t get enough! (Which is probably pretty obvious with my recent layouts and cards!)
If you haven’t had a chance to stop by and say hi to Kiwi Lane Designs, please do! Let them know that ScrapbookSteals and this Mojo Mama says hi!
I loved seeing the creative interpretations of Katrina’s sketch from last week and I’m looking forward to taking a stab at it myself! I’m happy so many of you found a little scrappy time in your schedule, especially this week’s lucky random winner Liz Martinez! I love the fun photos of her girls!
Liz, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org letting them know you are this week’s random winner and we will be happy to send a prize to you.
On that note, I’m just so fired up about last week’s awesome participation (and the fact that I actually made a two-pager!) I think we will do a bonus random drawing next week. How’s that for a little extra incentive to get your scrappy on?
I hope you all have a positively amazing day!
