Kiwi Lane Design Borders sets.
For my first layout, I used the templates in a traditional manner, using Kiwi Lane's framing technique. I loved their ideas for using these to maximize your paper and create two page layouts. While typically I am a one page layout scrapbooker, these templates made it easy for me to create a two page layout with balance and unity.
I created waves on one side with patterned pieces of cardstock, and flipped the shapes on the other side so that they balance each other without being completely symmetrical.
The wavy templates reminded me of snow and so my next project featured some fun snow pictures with the templates creating banks of snow on my layout.
Layering various patterns of cardstock I created hills of snow and one piece I cut out and then ran through my embosser to give it dotted texture for dimension.
I also punched snowflakes which I also embossed with dots to add some interest.
The templates come with an eyelet enforced hold punched in the corner so the sets are easily held together by a ring. It was nice to keep them together and pull them out as needed to use them.
I took one shape that had a pointed wave and traced one side...
And finally, another fun technique...
I used the border template to cut two complimentary shapes, punched holes and reinforced with eyelets, and laced the pieces across a coordinating piece of cardstock.
These templates are so much fun, I hope this gives you some ideas of what to do with the Kiwi Lane Templates!
