A Layout and a Few Cards with Kiwi Lane

Hello fellow Kiwi Lane fans!  I have a few things to share with you today. And to continue with my theme from some of the last few posts I've done, I used another fabulous Kiwi Lane paper kit to create a single page layout and a few cards, along with this month featured templates- Brackets, Adorn and Autumn.

I used Kiwi Lane's "Social Butterfly" paper kit this month. I have to admit- when I saw this collection, I thought it was going to be way too girly for me to do use very well.  Especially with the Autumn template set.  I mean, it has pink, flowers and butterflies!  BUT, I should have known better!! These Kiwi Lane ladies are genius and know how to make a paper kit so that you don't have to use the girly elements in a way that overpowers the page. Instead, you use the reverse side and smaller pieces of those prints that scream GIRLY GIRL.  And you end up with a project that is just feminine enough without jumping out at you with a tiara, tutu and sparkly wand. I'm telling you, it's pure genius!!

So here's the layout I ended up with:
Supplies: Kiwi Lane's Social Butterfly paper kit; alphabet stickers (American Crafts, Making Memories); ink (Ranger); pen (Staedtler)

And here's how I "Framed" my layout:

Yes, that is a grand total of three templates on my layout.  I had no idea what I wanted to do with the layout when I started.  So I threw on a few templates from the Adorn template set, along with a template from the Bracket set and built my page from there. I added lots of layers of the scalloped edge and mirrored that at the bottom of the page.  I also used one of the printed quotes from the paper kit and added that early on to make sure I left room for it.  I finished off the page with a butterfly from the Tiny Nature set and a few flowers from the Tiny Wildflower set and a title using some alphabet stickers.  

With some of the remaining paper from the kit, I made some cards:
Supplies: Kiwi Lane's Social Butterfly paper kit; card stock (American Crafts); pen (Staedtler); ink (Ranger); stamp (Basic Grey); jewels (craft supply)
 Supplies: Kiwi Lane's Social Butterfly paper kit; card stock (American Crafts); pearl (Doodlebug); brad (American Crafts); ink (Ranger)
Supplies: Kiwi Lane's Social Butterfly paper kit; card stock, alphabet stickers (American Crafts); pearls (Doodlebug); ink (Ranger); pen (Staedtler)

The "Hello" card has a shaped edge and some detail on the inside:

Even after making a layout and a few cards, I have enough scraps of paper left to make at least a few more cards. I love how much you can do with each Kiwi Lane paper kit!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Scrapping!!
